I have not used my blog to make a prayer request before but I am doing so today. Resa Ellison needs your prayers. Her father is one of my brother priests. And she is a friend of mine who has fallen very ill. She is in ICU. She was admitted on November 9 and her condition has steadily declined. Her doctors are dealing with the very serious complications from H1N1 and a very aggressive Pneumonia. They have placed her in an induced coma, she has a feeding tube, continual nebulizer, a central line, and is now on experimental medication that was flown in from the CDC. They have her in a rotating bed to try and give her lungs more space to raise her O2 levels.
Thank you in advance for your prayers.
Let us pray to the Lord!
O Lord Jesus Christ, the healer of our souls and bodies visit our sister Resa, who is very ill, and have mercy on her. Stretch forth your arm that is full of healing and health, and raise her up from her bed and her illness. Put away from her the spirit of disease and of every malady, and pain, and fever. And if she has sins, grant her remission and forgiveness, because you love her. O Lord, remember Resa. Unto thee we ascribe glory, together with thy Father who is from everlasting, and thine all-holy, good and lifegiving Spirit: now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen
