Some of you, as I have, may have noticed that our ebullient and beloved commenter Miranda hasn’t been on the Fellowship as often. This is why.
Miranda’s 28-year-old husband, Heath, is ill. He has been in the hospital for the past four days. But they don’t know what’s ailing him, other than a low oxygen level. To make matters worse, their darling little daughter has the flu and is throwing up.
Miranda and Heath are God’s people — devout Christians. Miranda, as you know, is a stay-at-home mom, caring for two young children.
Please, please say a fervent prayer for this precious family:
- That Heath’s doctors will find out what’s ailing him and determine the correct remedy.
- That Heath swiftly recovers and regains his health.
- That their little girl quickly recovers from the flu.
- That Miranda be given the strength to care for her family.
Glorious Archangel St. Raphael, great prince of the heavenly court, you are illustrious for your gifts of wisdom and grace. You are a guide of those who journey by land or sea or air, consoler of the afflicted, and refuge of sinners.
I beg you, assist me in all my needs and in all the sufferings of this life, as once you helped the young Tobias on his travels. Because you are the “medicine of God” I humbly pray you to heal the many infirmities of my soul and the ills that afflict my body. I especially ask of you this favor — that, through the Almighty God’s power, Heath be healed from his infirmities — and the great grace of purity to prepare me to be the temple of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
