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.
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.
Prayers up for him and his family.
I’m so sorry. He has my prayers.
Parkinson’s is one of those cruel disease’s...they have made a little headway in treating it. I pray they will find a cure or effective treatment soon for your friend Joe.
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 cest à Toi quappartiennent 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!)

He’s added to my prayer list for daily prayer.
“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 Alzheimers.”
Just to let you know, dementia occurs in up to 75% of patients with Parkinson’s.
Logan’s Prayer Warriors, please join in prayer for Joe.
Prayers on the way for Joe and family.
Joe is in my prayers.
Joining you in prayer. Remember to not lean upon your own understanding at this time. I always find comfort in reading 1 Peter. This is our temporary home. God bless you and Joe, and his family.
Prayers up for Joe and his family.
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.
I pray for God’s mercy on Joe and peace and strength for his family and all his friends.
Prayers have been sent.
Prayers for your friend Joe.
