Prayers for Deacon Jeff

Our dear deacon was diagnosed with cancer just a couple weeks ago. His prognosis is not good, as all indications are the cancer has spread rapidly throughout his body. Our parish is in prayer overdrive for the deacon. A Holy Hour with Exposition and Benediction is scheduled for this evening and our pastor has written the following special intercessory prayer:

Almighty God our Father,
We pray that through the intercession
of Bishop John Carroll, special patron of
Sacred Heart Parish by his election here
as the first bishop of our country, and by
Your loving providence, You might grant
physical healing to (name).
We ask this through Our Lord Jesus Christ,
Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You
and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.

One Our Father
One Hail Mary
One Glory Be

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Have mercy on us (3 times)

God grant your servant Deacon Jeff, his family and friends mercy as he is battling cancer. There is no other Power on, above and below the Earth that has the authority to heal all things than through You. We ask in Your Name to bring healing to his body so that the world may know that You alone are God. Grant Deacon Jeff peace and surround him with encouragement through your Spirit, family and friends as he walks through this difficult time. Thank you for choosing to be involved in our lives and being willing to provide healing to our bodies. In this we ask in Jesus' name. Amen

Love ya Mau!

Your Bro
