Melissa needs our prayers again!

Please say a prayer for Melissa. Just 24 years old!

Prayer for Healing
Lord, look upon Melissa with eyes of mercy, may your healing hand rest upon her, may your life giving powers flow into every cell of her body and into the depths of her soul, cleansing, purifying, restoring her to wholeness and strength for service in your Kingdom. Amen.

Prayer to St. Anthony for Healing
Compassionate St. Anthony, you are called the "Miracle Worker" by those who have been blessed by your special friendship. I ask you to look with favor on Melissa who is weak and failing.

Great St. Anthony, come to the assistance of Melissa. Obtain for her health in mind and body, and the strength to accept all suffering in union with Christ, our Savior.

Loving St. Anthony, console all those who are afflicted, and guide them to the heart of the Divine Physician, where they will obtain compassion, mercy and hope. Amen.

Just so sad... I hope that many will pray the rosary on the chosen date for Melissa.. that would be so wonderful if we could get lots and lots of people praying for this sweet young lady.

It is quite sad, Tracy. Those prayers must be incessant, especially on the requested date of March 11th.

Again, thanks for bringing it to our attention.

I have been praying for Melissa and will continue to do so. The suffering, the sickness and the anxiety that this young woman is experiencing is so great, my heart goes out to her. A friend of mine is enduring Cancer treatment and is so sick. I told her at the weekend that she puts me to shame for how I complain about my daily headaches and asthma.

She said, in all humility, that she used to be the same herself, and I had nothing to reproach myself for. My friend is tiny and I would never have thought she could have got through these gruelling 20 weeks of chemo and radiotherapy, repeated infections and open wounds that will not heal.

We can learn so much from our sufferings and it really is true that we are one with Christ in the midst of them, though we may not realise it at the time.

Prayers continue.
