Prayer for my Grandpa and personal thoughts

Hi, everyone my grandfather is in the hospital with a report that he’s brain is dead. He is still alive because of the respirator. My family cannot visit him because of Covid, I tried to give him a brown scapular but the staff does not want any potential contamination. The only way my family can see him is by video chat, I thought about doing the divine mercy chaplet through the video chat alongside my family. The staff is already planning to take off the respirator, he might live or die without it. I did prayers for him, what I said in those prayers is that if he is going to die at least make him live for some days so I can give him a brown scapular. I don’t want him to go to hell, he does not have a good memory so he can confess his sins in confession (He is 87 years old). I know that my grandfather can’t live forever, because of that I want him to die without any sin connected to him. I have been doing the St. Jude novena, but I missed 2 days (I caught up to the current day to do it) and fall into sin (I have been struggling with masturbation). I guess you could say I don’t know what best for myself. I need prayers and I want to be close to God. I feel scared I guess.

Praying for you and your grandfather. I’m sorry you’re having such an difficult time.

Others may disagree, but I don’t believe you need to worry about the scapular. (I understand your concerns and I am wearing one as I write this) God takes all things and all times into consideration and his Mercy is endless.

Praying for all of your family.

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your Holy Will, which is Love and Mercy itself.

Amen.

I pray that our Heavenly Father provides comfort/healing for your grandfather and encouragement for his family.

Father may this man be forgiven of any sins. May he serve you forever in your Kingdom. May his family and friends be comforted knowing his is sin free and God has forgiven him of all sins because of his faith and child of God. In your name, Jesus amen!

Hail Mary,

O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!

And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

Prayer for a Miracle

God of all creation, you who spoke a simple command and brought forth light from
the darkness, I ask you now to send forth your miracle-working power to heal ( Patrick200’s Grandfather). You cleansed the lepers, opened the eyes of the blind and by
speaking a simple command, you empowered the crippled to rise up and walk.
You sent forth your life-giving power to all those in need, including those you raised from
the dead. I ask you to send forth your healing power into Patrick200’s Grandfather’s body and give him the strength to fight his illness. I ask this through my Lord, Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
