I ask your prayers for Mike, a coworker, who is in h0spital with blood clots in his lungs.
And for my friend Diane who had a bout of food poisoning yesterday and is now all right but quite exhausted.
My friend Kathy wrote:
I ask your indulgence in starting a prayer among your many readers for my coworker Ranae - whose baby son was taken to the hospital two days ago and hooked up to an IV - failure to thrive. He was born with a cleft palate and is having trouble nursing and therefore thriving. She's a single mom, holding down a full-time job and caring for her son on her own. Perhaps now would be a good time to remind her that she is never really alone at all...
I also got this e-mail today:
Kathryn, Parish Administrator of St. Michael and All Angels, asks for prayer for her sister, Janet. Janet is in ICU with complications from oxygen deprivation. Kathryn asks that as we hold her sister before God we pray for the best and highest possible healing for Janet and ask that the time remaining in this earthly journey be one of quality and joy.
Continuing prayers for Sister Ellie.
For the repose of the soul of Catherine, daughter of Bosco Peters.
For Jane R's friends P and B.
For Kirstin, and for Ian and Lisa, and Fluffy, and a safe return from journeying for TCR.
For Clara and Olivia.
And for my own leg which must be healing but it is sooooooo slow. I skipped Russian class, came home, proppped it up on the end of the couch and let the television run for hours. Finally came upstairs and am now headed to bed.
MONDAY IN THE SECOND WEEK OF LENT
Let your Spirit, O Lord, come into the midst of us to wash us with the pure water of repentance, and prepare us to be always a living sacrifice to you; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
