Prayer for work colleague not to have another miscarriage


#1

Hi,

I hope no-one will mind praying for a non-Catholic (the lady in question been Hindu) but I am deeply concerned about my work colleague, she had a severe miscarriage earlier this year but then got pregnant again recently. However today she started bleeding and having sharp stomach pains, as I am her boss I sent her home instantly and got one of the female members of staff to escort her home by train as she was in such a shell shocked condition I was concerned she would walk under a car had I let her go home on her own. I am deeply concerned she will have another miscarriage and that will place her in a deep depression as did the last one. I would ask if everyone could offer up some prayer for her recovery and that she could keep the baby this time as it led to serious problems for her last time as she has tried several times for a baby with similar results now.

Considering that 4 of the girls who work under me have had abortions in the last year (including two Catholics) there seems something cruely ironic in this also :frowning:

PRAYER TO ST. ANTHONY FOR THE HEALTH
OF AN EXPECTANT MOTHER & UNBORN CHILD

Glorious St. Anthony, you were blessed to hold the Infant Jesus in your arms. I come to you now on behalf of JharekCarnelian’s friend who pleads for the health and safety of the child that God has graced her to conceive.

St. Anthony, guard this life God has created, and the mother God has chosen for this child. Let your gentle hand, like that of a skilled physician, aid in her delivery so that this baby will know good health and lasting happiness.

Thanks everyone - I am really concerned about this lady as my deputy phoned her today to see if she was doing ok (as they are friends) and she is feeling really bad - she can’t move her leg or arm much and I am becoming very concerned something seriously wrong has happened to her. I am worried also as I am considering leaving my present job and this places undue stress on here as she is trapped in the job as she needs it badly and cannot leave - I am considering staying till some replacement can be found for me as I feel immensely bad and guilty about this and am praying myself for some guidance on the issue.

Yes the lady is no better, her cousin who I know a little was visiting us at work today and said she still feels awful and is very depressed also. Apparently her cousin argued with her husband and has phoned her sister as she feels her husband is treating the manner with a lack of seriosuness or respect for his wife. They are in Britian on long stay visas but their visas operate such that one partner is a dependent and the other the main worker - in this case her husband is the dependent as he is studying and he apparently is saying his wife needs to get back to work to earn money. I have no wish however to get involved in this area as a)it’s not my business to interfere between a husband and wfie and b)i don’t know her husband well and it’s imppossible to know how accurate this story is. My own feeling is the young lady should go home to Bangladesh where she originates from as her family are reasonably wealthy there and she could recuperate properly. She is not terribly happy in the UK, she finds the climate and culture very, very alien and oppressive. I am praying God might convince her to stop been stubborn when I have suggested asking her father for help as she keeps saying she would be ashamed to ask him for monetary help even though she says he could easily afford it. I am praying she will realise her father would rather help her than see her ill and that she can get rid of the illness, have the baby and maybe move to a happier time in her life soon.

Praying… if she has not lost the baby that is the main thing at this point… How unfortunate that she seems to have problems in the bigger picture as well. I am getting a very negative image of the husband, fairly or not.
