I apologize for posting off-topic but I need some help. My father Thomas Buckley has been hospitalized with what is either a large tissue infection, or an aggressive lung cancer. I’ve never spoken with a better group of people than on this blog, and any prayers on his and my mother’s behalf would be greatly appreciated. Thank you to all.
Merciful Lord, visit us in our time of need and affliction; and as you healed Jairus’ daughter and raised her from her bed of infirmity, visit your servant, Master, and deliver him from sickness and pain. For you alone have born the sickness and affliction of our world and with you nothing is impossible. For you are all-merciful and to you we ascribe glory and adoration forever. Amen
