Urgent Prayer Request

I just got one of those dreaded phone calls that wakes you out of your sleep.  My husband's sister has been ill but expected to recover.  We just got word that she has taken a downward turn and is in very grave condition.  The family was urged to come to the hospital as soon as they can, which is no easy feat at this hour given the age of the siblings, health, and the distance of the hospital,  etc.

As a former ICU nurse, I understand the prognosis is not promising, but I also believe there is nothing hopeless when it is placed in God's hands.  I was given the task of passing the information along to the other siblings.  I hated to sound so clinical about it but it's hard when people ask questions and are looking for answers.  That is the best thing I can do for my nieces right now besides pray for their mother.  I thought the other thing I could do was engage you, my dear friends, to remember my sister-in-law Carol in your prayers.

God Bless you and thank you


  1. I am so sorry to hear this. I will begin praying for Carol now. May God be with all of you during ths difficult time.

  2. I will pray for her now.

  3. I am sorry Joyce...your intention is placed in the Immaculate Heart of Mary.~Theresa

  4. Please know that you and your family will be in my prayers...
