Asking for prayers.

For those of you who pray, please ask God's mercy for a dear friend of mine whose wife lost a baby today to an ectopic pregnancy. They've spent most of their Independence Day in the ER and surgery, and the outcome for her body is still uncertain. Thank you.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.

Amen.

UPDATE: She came out of surgery and, after a night in the ICU, is stable and doing well. Now please continue to pray for the healing of their hearts. Thank you to all who have been praying!

Erika,
Thank you so much for your prayers Just laying in bed now browsing through some blogs and found this. Home and slowly recovering. God is so very close to us and grace is abundant. Please pray for our trust in Him.
