I want to call to everyone's attention that our fellow Brother Knight and District Deputy #82, Michael Akiboh, is in need of our prayers. He is in the ICU at the Methodist Hospital in Sugarland. He continues to battle with cancer, and is now in isolation due to contracting COVID-19. He is short of breath and finds it hard to talk, and no visitors are allowed. He can be reached in his room at this number: (346) 901-2586.
Requested by: Joshua Alderete
You shall not fear the terror of the night
nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that roams in darkness,
nor the plague that ravages at noon.
Merciful God, hear our fervent prayer for all who suffer from the coronavirus.
May those who are infected receive the proper treatment
and the comfort of your healing presence.
May their caregivers, families and neighbors be shielded
from the onslaught of the virus.
Give solace to those who grieve the loss of loved ones.
Protect and guide those who strive to find a cure,
that their work may conquer the disease and restore communities to wholeness and health.
Help us to rise above fear. We ask all this through the intercession of Our Lady of Lourdes,
and in the name of your Son, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, now and forever.
