Severe throat problems

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. 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.


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.


Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

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


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 punisherthunder. 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 punisherthunder’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

Thank you all for the prayers. I’m have an appointment at 3 on Wednesday with an ENT (I always try to get 3 o’clock appointments for such :slight_smile: )

I am hoping he can alleviate or find a cause for these symptoms. I will be praying a novena to St. Blaise to help me. I will also be mentioning you all in my daily Rosary for those who are so kind to pray for me and especially for my wife who is unemployed still. We have hope in this one job she’s interviewed 3 times for and they’re still trying to make a decision. I hope this can help us…


Praying for your health, well-being, and for your wife to find employment.

Saint Patrick’s Breastplate

Christ be with me, Christ within me
Christ behind me, Christ before me
Christ beside me, Christ to win me
Christ to comfort me and restore me.
Christ beneath me, Christ above me
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger
Christ in hearts of all that love me
Christ in mouth of friend or stranger.

Thank you for the update.

Prayers continuing for both of you…

*O most beautiful Flower of Mount Carmel, Fruitful Vine, Splendor of Heaven, who brought forth the Son of God still remaining a Virgin, assist us in this necessity. O Star of the Sea, help us, and show us that you are our Mother.

O Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and earth, we humbly ask you from the depths of our heart to help us in this necessity. There are none who can withstand your power. O show us that you are our Mother.

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee. Sweet Mother, we place this cause in your hands. Amen.*

Flos Carmeli

ENT doctor said it’s either a possible LPR/Silent Reflux causing my constant lump in throat sensation or serious post nasal drip. He’s recommending me for a sessions with an allergist to see what I’m allergic to, also he’s increasing the amount of Omeprazole I take daily.

As for my wife, each day is a total cross to bear. Constantly checking phones and emails of hope that she got the job she interviewed for three times. Also looking for even the faintest hint of another interview. It’s a struggle to keep us both up mentally, physically and spiritually, but I remember to pray for you all who pray for us too in my daily Rosary. :o

I’m so very sorry for the medical issues.

Believe me, I know how that goes, where you go from one type of doctor, to another.

I hope and pray that you can quickly resolve what is causing your discomfort.

I pray that everything works out for your wife, regarding a new job.

God bless you both. You have both been in my thoughts and prayers.
