I just received a prayer request, so I thought I’d add a couple of my own and then direct you to the one I received.
First, for one of our sisters (Sr. K.) , who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and will soon be having a mastectomy. From what I’ve heard from a Jesuit friend up here, the cancer is in a pretty advanced state, so she needs all the prayers you can spare.
Second, my friend M. had some surgery today that is supposed to fix some shoulder problems that she has been having for way too long. I haven’t yet heard how it went. I don’t know the details, but the plan was to actually remove a part of the scapula (shoulder blade), so it sounds pretty serious. I really hope the surgery helps, as M. has been pretty incapacitated and in a lot of pain for quite some time. It’s especially difficult for her, as she loves biking and kayaking, neither of which she has been able to do for a couple of years now. I’m sure she would appreciate your prayers.
Finally, check out this link for the prayer request I received today.
Feel free to add your own prayer requests in a comment to this post.
