Urgent Prayer for my Mother, Please

My mother has COPD with Asthma which is a chronic breathing problem. She also has a heart issue that isn’t fully understood because she’s never really gotten it checked out.

In the past these issues were controlled with medication, however a few days ago she caught a respiratory infection which escalated unbelievably fast. (She went from “fine” to “hospice care,” in about five days.) Her lack of breath made it too difficult to eat or take her medications. As of writing this she hasn’t eaten in three days. The infection coupled with the lack of food and necessary medications made her extremely weak and she could no long get up to go to the bathroom by herself. My sister and I had to help her. The lack of oxygen in her blood stream made her disoriented. My sister and I begged her to go to the hospital but she wouldn’t; she was afraid of what they would do to her. I think this was part of her being disoriented. My aunt has power of attorney, but my mother is lucid for long enough to render that inconsequential.

Yesterday she went into hospice care. When I spoke with her she seemed very disoriented. (She was speaking gibberish) I am terrified of her being in the hospice because they’re not really interested in treating her infection like the hospital would be, as much as they are in holding her hand while she dies. What is worse is that the place they took her to is in a neighboring suburb, and I don’t have a car or reliable way to get there. I don’t want her to die in some place surrounded by strangers.

Please, please pray for my mom. While death is necessary to enter into eternal life, I have come to believe that sickness is NOT God’s will. A person does not need to be sick to die.

[INDENT][INDENT][INDENT]Prayer for the Elderly by St. John Paul II

Grant, O Lord of life,
That we may savor every season of our lives as a gift
filled with promise for the future.
Grant that we may lovingly accept your will,
and place ourselves each day in your merciful hands.
And when the moment of our definitive “passage” comes,
grant that we may face it with serenity,
without regret for what we shall leave behind.
For in meeting you,
after having sought you for so long,
we shall find once more every authentic good
which we have known here on earth,
in the company of all who have gone before us
marked with the sign of faith and hope.
Mary, Mother of pilgrim humanity,
pray for us “now and at the hour of our death.”
Keep us ever close to Jesus, your beloved Son and our Brother,
the Lord of life and glory. Amen.

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 a Jesness’s mother. 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 a Jesness’s mother. 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

She’s in my prayers from now on, Jesness, and so are you.:gopray:

Inspired with this confidence, I fly to 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. Amen.
