I continue to be in prayer for you and your family.


I also am praying for your brother. I think of him often since that first post you wrote a few months back. I almost lost my brother to brain cancer a few years back so I stand in compassionate shoes when I pray that He supplies you with the strength to be there for your brother. God bless~


The most amazing thing so far about this Novena has been the way in which each day's events have been so connected with the prayers. My brother came close to death twice today, and yet, he (and I struggled to be) was at peace with the idea. Just as the Novena said to faithfully place ourselves in God's loving hands. And to be confident in His love. It was a great blessing


I have prayed your prayer with you and I continue to pray for your brother, and for you.

I continue to pray.

With Merton, we may not see the way ahead. But hope and faith enable us to see that the One ahead is the One by our side and in our hearts even now. May that One give you strength.


"O God, the strength of the weak and the comfort of sufferers: Mercifully accept our prayers, and grant your servant Michael the help of your power, that his sickness may be turned into health, and our sorrow into joy; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen."

May this prayer from the Book of Common Prayer be the prayer of our heart this day.


Prayers ascending friend.
