Urgent Prayer Request

A dear friend of mine and her husband just found their two year old face down in a bucket of water, not breathing.  Her lips and fingers blue. Please pray that they can revive her. The little one is being air lifted to the hospital.

Please Pray. Thank you!

+ + +

Update: Thank you all for the prayers. The precious little one did not make it… I am so heartbroken for their family. Please continue to keep them in your prayers!

Update #2: We have set up a GoFundMe page here to help with the extraordinary medical and funeral expenses.

O Tender Heart of Jesus, please have mercy on my dear friend's grieving heart! She has lost her child, and her soul is flooded with tears. And yet she knows that Thou hast not abandoned her. Thou art with her always. Thou hast triumphed over death, so that through Sanctifying Grace, death is not the end of life, but only the beginning of a life of eternal joy and peace. Help her, O Lord, in this time of sorrow, to find consolation in knowing her child is now a saint and enjoys the perfect happiness of living with Thee in Heaven.

O Mary, my Sorrowful Mother, who gazed in sorrow at the sight of thy Son dying on the Cross, please pray for my dear friend and her family in their time of grief. Help them to find peace and comfort in trusting in our merciful Father’s love. May this trial serve to strengthen the bond between their sorrowing hearts, to unite them even more closely to each other, and to deepen their faith and trust in God our Father. Though their sweet child is lost to them in this life, may they know the unutterable joy of meeting their child again in Heaven.

Blessed Zelie Martin, mother of St. Therese the Little Flower, you experienced profound grief when you held four of your children in your arms as they breathed their last breath. Assist my dear friend in her grief, for she too has lost a child. You knew deep sorrow, yet you never grew bitter or angry against God, but always trusted in His infinite mercy and love. Help her to trust Him too. Your faith assured you that your little ones were happy in Heaven, and you found consolation in knowing they were watching over your family and praying for you. Help her, too, to be strengthened by her Catholic Faith, and to find joy in knowing that her precious child is now enjoying the peace and joy of Heaven.

All ye heavenly Angels and Saints, pray for them! Pray for their grieving family! May they never forget to pray to the little member of their family who is watching over them from Heaven. Amen.

Jesus said to her: I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me, although he be dead, shall live: And every one that liveth, and believeth in me, shall not die for ever.
John 11:25-26

  57. So sorry to read this and praying for this dear family and their little one. It struck a chord with me as my six year old son had a near drowning when he was 18 months, in the pond in my parent's garden. It happens so easily, even with everyone's vigilance. I hope they can find some comfort through our prayers and care.

  59. We also had a near-drowning experience with our just-turned-four-year old last summer. He was pulled out of the water not breathing and life-flighted to our children's hospital. It can happen so fast. He is totally fine now. My heart breaks for this family. What a great sorrow. A great cross to bear. I have anxiety now when I think about our experience and I can't even imagine the pain this family is in. We will pray!

  60. Hello, My name is Eric Yang and l am married to Norma Jarbouh for three years now. My prayer request is for the healing of my kidneys and the healing of my marriage to Norma Jarbouh. I speak to reconciliation of my marriage. I want to have peace, unity, love and faith in my marriage. I have always been persecuted in my marriage as l am now on my third. I was in an unexplained coma for one week. I suddenly was diagnosed with kidney disease and hypertension. My marriage is now falling apart as my wife is looking to request for a Divorce. Please help me as l am desperate to maintain my marriage. Thanks for everything in the name of Jesus. Eric Yang

  63. Father God, I am your loyal subject and I need your help. My son has assaulted me on numerous occasions and I can't take it any more. He is cruel at his best towards me, bring an immediate, lasting change regarding this matter. I want peace and I want to be emotionally distant from him. No longer will I allow him to break me down. I praise the Lord for he is going to handle this matter swiftly. (Ryan) is being very difficult for me. Please bless the Oil of Miracles to remind him/her of your commandment to obey me as I obey You. I've teach my children to follow your will but he has refused it and continues to violate me and my household. In Jesus name I pray you'll help me Lord. Amen

  64. Please pray for my son who is an addict, homeless, jobless and very angry with himself and others for not enabling his actions in not getting better. I am at my wits end and my heart is heavy and my mind races with what is going to happen next. I don't sleep at night and I've started to gain weight again cause of the stress and I feel so helpless and a bad parent even though he is 30 yrs old, you always want what's best for your child. I don't have anyone to talk to about this and I am sickened about it. The other prayer I need is my own life, the man that I am with and praying tor to show me if this man is truly dedicated and loves like he says he does. I just started school and pray that FASFA and Student Loans cover it, and I excel in school for bettering my life and circumstances. I find a good decent family or roommates to rent my house or rooms in my house for income, my bankruptcy goes thru with no issues, my son find solace and help, that the man I am with either really wants me or lets me go for good. God will bring Christian friends into my life and I will find someone to talk to about my son and what is happening with his life and someone will help him and God will protect him and God will bring someone in his life that will help him better himself and he will see more than what he is living right now and what he hs losing in life.

  67. I am a Gold Star Mother, my only child Patrick was shot 8 times, and killed in the Iraq war, June 22, 2004. Since 2006, I have worked with homeless OIF-OEF Veterans, giving them a home, food and new purpose, so they had a chance to reclaim their lives, because of lack of funds, I lost my house. Now I am 73 years, with a heart condition (my doctors have told me, that, they can't help me anymore) again, I am about to lose my retirement benefits and housing, I am facing the streets at my age, I am losing my strength and hope. All I like is a peaceful end. Please pray for me and my family. With love and gratefulness to all.
