Surgery prayers needed



My stepfather's mother (who lives with my parents) is going to have surgery tomorrow. Her intestines have scar tissue (this will be the 2nd surgery) and are now all twisted up. She has suffered from several bowl impactions as a result.

The surgery in and of itself is not that bad, but the doctor said she may have to be on a respirator the rest of her life.

That's all I know right now, but we need all the prayers we can get.

Thanks - Juli



Be assured of my prayers for your stepfather's mother.


"I am simply content to find myself always imperfect, and in this I find my joy. Good deeds count as nothing, if done without love" ~ St. Therese of Lisieux



for Sheeniec's stepfather's mother,

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession, was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.


Praying very hard for her complete recovery.


Jesus please ensure that the surgery relieves the problems far more than may be feared. Please grant that it helps to relieve pain and discomfort, and prevents recurrence of bowel impactions. Let Your love and light surround and bless Juli and all her relatives by blood and by marriage.
Thank You, Jesus

PRaying for your stepfather's mother's successful surgery and healing


Praying for your stepfather's mother ...

Hail Mary,
full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the Fruit Of Thy Womb,
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.


Praying that your step-father's mother is well enough not to need a respirator for the rest of her life. May she keep strong by praying and receiving Jesus in the Eucharist, and be totally surrendered to his merciful love. Amen.
