Prayers for health

I have a couple of serious medical conditions “hindering me” since I was a baby and I have been meeting with a respiratory/cardiologist for years since I was a child but since I am growing older and my heart is also growing older, I am having to meet with him more often. Recently we spoke of transplants and other treatments which was something I was completely unprepared for. I am not too worried as I know that it may never have to happen, but he told me if I stay well (as in no flus, chest infections & such) it will keep the strain away from my heart and lung (I only have the one). My problem is that I am working with children. I love my job and I love the kids. But, over this past year I have been so constantly sick with infections and flus and everything that would be detrimental to my conditions. I have been constantly sick for the past month. I study full time and have two jobs so I am falling so very far behind, not to mention how miserable I feel during my times of illness.

Perhaps I have chosen the wrong profession, but I figure if it is meant to be God will sustain my health. So any prayers for good health or for the Lord to guide me to the right decision in regards to my career – and if this is not the occupation he has set me up for, then what… because I would feel at a loss with my life without it.

Any prayers would be so graciously appreciated. :slight_smile:

Jess

Praying for Jess:signofcross:

Our Father, who art in Heaven,
hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done
on earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses; as we forgive those
who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

For Jess’s health:

Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum; Benedicta tu in mulieribus et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Iesus. Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.

Oh, Jess, you must be so conflicted. I pray for your health and that His will be done.

My prayers for God’s healing and grace for you.

Praying for you…

God, please help this person. Our Father, who art in heaven… Dear Mary, my mother and queen, please pray for this person. Hail Mary, full of grace…

Father, I pray for her to see your path and follow your will!

So any prayers for good health or for the Lord to guide me to the right decision in regards to my career – and if this is not the occupation he has set me up for, then what… because I would feel at a loss with my life without it.

May The Lord indeed watch over your health and also your employment…will keep your intentions in daily prayer.

Thank you wonderful people so very much.

I am suffering a bit of pain in my hips and chest as a result of coughing so constantly to the point of exhaustion which is affecting my ability to work.

Please continue to pray for me. I appreciate it so much, God bless you all =)

I am praying for you!
Hail, Mary! Full of grace,
The Lord is with thee;
Blessed are thou among women,
And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God,
Pray for us sinners,
Now, and at the hour of our death.

Amen.:signofcross:

I will continue to pray for you and your health!

Prayers for you too :gopray2:

Kids are wonderful but they can indeed be germ-ridden little darlings - not their fault at all of course.

I remember doing work experience in high school at a day-care, and getting so sick after three days there I had to take the rest of the week off to recover.

I’d say regular flu-shots might be helpful, though that may be something you’ve already discussed with your doctors. And if you’re studying as well it might be best to work elsewhere just until your studies are completed.

Praying

Keeping you in daily prayer. I hope things will improve including in your ability to work - this must be a worry.

Thank you lovely, lovely blessed people. :slight_smile:

I will be intending on beginning a new course of antibiotics while I work the next 4 weeks of work placement in a day care for my study course. Hopefully it will help fight off at least some of the germs.

I am continuing to pray that I may have the strength and the ability to trust in Jesus’ Holy Will for me, and that I may not become discouraged nor despondent if the outcome isn’t what I am hoping for but will understand that it is in my best interests to try something new and that with the help and the assistence of My Lord and savior, I will find something that will be right for me. I pray mostly that Jesus will sustain my health, protect me and shelter me from sickness in particular; any illness that effects my respiratory system and / or my kidney.

=)

Thank you people so much. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
