I received a direct petition of prayer today from Karen.
“Brooke I hope you don’t mind if I leave you a prayer request. We have a 35 year old man named Dan at our parish, wonderful guy with two young boys and a beautiful wife. His older boy just made his First Communion.
On Aug 9 Dan contracted a mysterious infection in his spine that has caused paralysis and numbness from the center of his chest down. He only has limited use of his right arm and hand and the whole left side of his body is totally paralyzed and without any feeling. He also has the infection in his brain. The doctors cannot seem to figure out what is wrong with him or how to treat him. Please pray that they will find a way to heal him. This has been like being struck by lightening for him and his family. One day he was fine, vibrant and working hard for God and his family, and the next he was fighting for his life and now he is paralyzed. We are hoping really for a miracle. Thank you so much. Please pray for Dan. “
Please add Dan and his family to your intentions. Thank you Karen for sharing his story and allowing us to unite in prayer for strength, healing, and fortitude for the days ahead. Please keep us posted.
