Please pray for Joe
self | 11/24/12 | self

Posted on 11/24/2012 10:00:25 AM PST by ex-snook

Please pray for my friend Joe. He has institutionalized unable to feed himself with Parkinson's disease. Joe was once a football player from the coal region of Pennsylvania. He was a HS football coach, neighbor and friend. My daughter was the baby sitter to his special child. His wife taught my children.

A few months ago at Church, he poked me in the back. I turned around, Joe remembered me but did not know me. He was being guided by his wife and was failing rapidly from this terrible disease.

PRAYER FOR HEALING OF PARKINSON’S DISEASE
THROUGH THE INTERCESSION OF BLESSED JOHN PAUL II

When my legs are frozen in place,
May God the Father push me and remind me
To lift my toes up and swing my arms
That I may walk again and not be afraid.

When I feel like falling or as my posture stoops,
May Jesus Christ, God the Son, break my fall
And catch me as I move forward
With my legs braced and feet wide apart.

When my movement is slow and I hesitate,
May God the Holy Spirit enlighten my path,
Broaden my horizon and show me the way
That I will be more agile and graceful in my steps and bearing.

When my hands and feet are shaking, or my chin trembles,
And my voice weakens as I speak,
May Mother Mary embrace me to calm me and assure me
That everything will be okay and I can rest in her arms and wait
Until everything is still and steady and I am in peace
As my voice grows strong and clear.

Forgive me, God the Father, for all my sins
Heal me, God the Son, from my Parkinson’s disease
Bless me, God the Holy Spirit, with wisdom and knowledge
Love me, Mother Mary, so that I can love and serve others despite my PD.
Thank you, Lord, for answering our prayers.
We ask all these, through the intercession of Blessed John Paul II.
Amen.

Our Father…
Hail Mary…
Glory Be…

Blessed John Paul II, Pray for us.

Of course I will.

Sounds like your friend has Alzheimer’s disease. My great grandfather had Parkinsons disease. His body didn’t work but his mind was sharp.

PRAYERS GOING UP FOR YOUR FRIEND JOE!



The Twenty-Third Psalm
Mahalia Jackson
(Click)


The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

Psalm 23 -KJV










Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

2 Corinthians 4

May the Holy Spirit implant His Words into the heart and soul of your friend, Joe, and into the hearts and souls of his family, that each might be strengthened and encouraged in the days ahead ...

Isaiah 41:10 ~ “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

Amen and Amen ...

Count my prayers in for your friend, too.

My Dad had Parkinson's and lived his remaining years in a hospital bed, unable to move. You could see in his eyes his mind was still sharp and could recognize things. I agree with cripplecreek: It sounds like Alzheimer’s.

Nonetheless, God bless your friend.

O Lord our God, Who by word alone did heal all diseases, Who did cure the kinswoman of Peter, You Who chastise with pity and heal according to Your goodness; Who are able to put aside every malady and infirmity, do You Yourself, the same Lord, grant aid to this Your servant Joseph and cure him of every sickness of which he is grieved; lift him up from his bed of pain, and send down upon him Your great mercy, and if it be Your Will, give to him health and a complete recovery; for You are the Physician of our souls and bodies, and to You do we send up Glory: to Father, and to Son, and to Holy Spirit, both now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

Nos prières à Dieu augmentent pour Joe et sa famille.
(Our Prayers to God increase for Joe and his family.)

Notre Père qui es aux cieux,
Que ton Nom soit sanctifié, que ton règne vienne,
Que ta volonté soit faite sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donne-nous aujourd'hui notre pain de ce jour.
Pardonne-nous nos offenses, comme nous pardonnons aussi à ceux qui nous ont offensés.
Et ne nous soumets pas à la tentation, mais délivre-nous du mal.
Car c’est à Toi qu’appartiennent le règne, la puissance et la gloire,
pour les siècles des siècles. Amen

Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grâces,
le Seigneur est avec vous, vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes,
et Jésus le fruit de vos entrailles est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu, priez pour nous pauvres pécheurs,
maintenant, et à l'heure de notre mort. Ainsi-soit-il.

Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)

Just to let you know, dementia occurs in up to 75% of patients with Parkinson’s.

Ex-snook, I am praying sincerely for your good friend, Joe; that our Lord and His ministering angels will stay by his side, protecting and comforting him, his loved ones and his friends in the times ahead.

I believe, one day, all the darkened windows and doors of Joe’s life will be thrown wide open, and Jesus will lead him out into the clean, fresh air of heaven where nothing hinders and everything is crystal clear and shining bright. May Joe rest in the light of His love, and may God bless.
