Relative Diagnosed With Cancer; Personal Troubles with Alcohol

My uncle, Mike, someone who has given light to my family since I was born, has been diagnosed with aggressive prostrate cancer. It has spread to the bones; this gives him a 28 percent chance of living for five years.

Please pray for my Uncle Mike’s recovery, that he may survive and live a long, fulfilled life, and defeat cancer. Pray that I and my family will have confidence in God, and that he will, upon death, reach Heaven and be saved from Hell.

On a side note, I’m developing a dependency on alcohol. Alcoholism runs in my family on both sides, so I am a bit concerned. Please pray very hard that I may break free, through God’s help, from this terrible affliction. I can’t seem to have happiness or fun without alcohol or drunkenness.

I ask for the intervention of Mary, St. Pelegrine, Matt Talbot, Padre Pio, St. John Paul II, and St. Gemma Galgani.

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 ( DonGioseffo and Mike). 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 DonGioseffo and Mike’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

Father of goodness and love,
hear our prayers for the sick members of our community and for all who are in need.
Amid mental and physical suffering may they find consolation in your healing presence.

Show your mercy as you close wounds, cure illness,
make broken bodies whole and free downcast spirits. May these special people find lasting health and deliverance, and so join us in thanking you for all your gifts. We ask this through the Lord Jesus who healed those who believed.

Amen.

St. Anthony of Padua, helper in all necessities, please intercede.
