Let's get out our beads and pray up a storm tonight.
(Probably a bad analogy with the fierce winds whipping through New Mexico right now.)
My dear friend Kathy is having surgery tomorrow to break up kidney stones. She has been in pain for so long, let us pray that this brings relief soon and that the passing may be swift and tolerable. May God guide the doctor and all who minister to her. May recovery be rapid and total.
Susankay asks us to pray for Molly:
Paul -- we left Molly-the-WonderDog with vet/boarding yesterday as we departed to visit kids and grandkids. Got a cell phone message this afternoon that Molly has a tumor in her eye that is probably malignant and she will need to have her eye removed. Unable to contact vet but will try to talk to him tomorrow. Prayers for discernment on how to proceed. And that Molly not have pain.Let us pray for the regions of the Gulf as the oil spill nears land. (Cf. Mimi here and WSJ here.) I just talked to Mimi as she was taking a walk and she can smell crude oil in the air.
Let us pray for the people of the UK as the election nears.
For the Chinese schoolchildren attacked with knives.
For Margaret as she participates in the Race for the Cure. For her husband Joel and their son Juan.
For Jack and his family.
For women everywhere in the struggle to have their full personhood honored.
For Mother Lauren.
For those consumed with confusion, anger, despair. For the lonely and the frightened. For those who live with chronic pain. For those who struggle to face each day.

For Rose-Marie and her family."Ongoing healing prayers also asked for Mark (Mapko) and my cousin Frank and Dorian.
