Pray for my friend who's son is dying!

My friend’s son is in a comatose state. And he’s sick with the flu. He’s been like this (comatose) for a long time now, and they decided to cease antibiotics, but now they’re thinking of pulling out his feeding tube also. :frowning: We’ve tried to talk her out of this, but she’s in a bad place right now. Please pray for her, that God will give her the peace and wisdom to get through this, and that he will heal her son. I’m so scared for her right now! :frowning: I don’t know what she’ll decide. Help!!

Lord, please grant this mother many graces for courage, fortitude, hope, faith, and understanding. Guide her with angels to fulfill the will of the Father. Draw her somehow through the mystery of suffering toward your Sacred Heart. Touch this son with your divine, healing hand, that his afflictions be remedied, even if a miracle be required. Shine your light on this family, now unto eternity. Have mercy, Lord. Our Lady, pray with us. Amen.

What a horrible situation to be in for your friend. :frowning: Prayers for both of them. May our heavenly Father’s will be done, may He comfort us and give us the strength and the conviction to do His will, always.

We pray for God’s holy and loving will, since You love this mother and son more than anyone. Have mercy and glorify your Name in their lives, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Watch, O Lord,
with those who wake,
or watch or weep tonight,
and give your angels charge
over those who sleep.

Tend your sick ones,
O Lord Jesus Christ;
rest your weary ones;
bless your dying ones;
soothe your suffering ones;
pity your afflicted ones;
shield your joyous ones;
and all for your love’s sake.

Amen

the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

They probably ceased anti-biotics because they don’t work against viruses, and the flu is a virus.

Almighty, ever-living God, You give strength to the weary and new courage to those who have lost heart. Hear the prayers of all who call on You in any trouble that they may have the joy of receiving Your help in their need. Amen.

Novena To Our Lady of Hope

I am the mother of fair love, and of fear, and of knowledge, and of holy hope. In me is all grace of the way and of the truth; in me is all hope of life and of virtue. Come to me all that desire me and be filled with my fruits.
O Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Grace, Hope of the world.
Hear us, your children, who cry to you.

Let Us Pray: O God, who by the marvelous protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary has strengthened us firmly in hope, grant we beseech You, that by persevering in prayer at her admonition, we may obtain the favors we devoutly implore. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Prayer to Our Lady of Hope
O Mary, my Mother, I kneel before you with heavy heart. The burden of my sins oppresses me. The knowledge of my weakness discourages me. I am beset by fears and temptations of every sort. Yet I am so attached to the things of this world that instead of longing for Heaven I am filled with dread at the thought of death.
O Mother of Mercy, have pity on me in my distress. You are all-powerful with your Divine Son. He can refuse no request of your Immaculate Heart. Show yourself a true Mother to me by being my advocate before His throne. O Refuge of Sinners and Hope of the Hopeless, to whom shall I turn if not you? Obtain for me, then, O Mother of Hope, the grace of true sorrow for my sins, the gift of perfect resignation to God’s Holy Will, and the courage to take up my cross and follow Jesus. Beg of His Sacred Heart the special favor that I ask in this novena.

(For this son and the family )

But above all I pray, O dearest Mother, that through your most powerful intercession my heart may be filled with Holy Hope, so that in life’s darkest hour I may never fail to trust in God my Savior, but by walking in the way of His commandments I may merit to be united with Him, and with you in the eternal joys of Heaven. Amen.
Mary, our Hope, have pity on us.
Hope of the Hopeless, pray for us.
