Wife just got a phone call with horrible news from niece in Bombay.
Ceiling collapsed in multi-story apartment building in the middle of the night. Very poor area.
Wife's older sister currently is semi-conscious and bleeding. There seems to be no emergency service who will pick her up and family has no vehicle. The next few hours would seem to be critical.
The sister, Margaret, was practically a saint in helping raise my wife as a child. A wonderful person.
Prayers badly needed. Thank you.
I will read but probably not reply tonight. Thank you.
Any prayer for Margaret, thank you
If any Hindus reading I forgot to say your prayers are gratefully accepted as well.
Margaret is Catholic.
Sending prayers your way, FRiend.
FReeper PRayer BUmp!
My husband and I will pray right now.
May God help her himself or find a good samaritan who will see to it she immediately gets the care she needs.
I will pray for you and yours, mate. God Bless.
Prayers up. God Bless.
I’m an agnostic. I will pray too.
Prayers lifted for her.
May God Bless and comfort Margaret and here family.
He hears all prayers.
He can do all things.
Prayers for Margaret and her daughter.
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!)

My 4 little ones will be praying for your family tonight.
Don-o, please pray.
Thank you all!
This is just outside the Bombay (Mumbai) city limits to the north, a building has partially collapsed and there seem to be no emergency services of any kind attending to the situation!
Sun is just coming up.
Margaret is about 63 and definitely seems to have a head injury. The niece just avoiding getting hit herself.
My wife here is beside herself as you might imagine. Absolute, total, helplessness except prayer.
I pray that God will send His angels to aid all involved, and that His saints will also respond with prayers for their safety and recovery. I especially ask that your wife’s sister is given every assistance she requires. God Bless all of you!!
I pray God she will not have much trouble and help can be on the way!
Thank you. Agnostic prayers gratefully accepted.
If anyone reading should happen to know a person of means in Bombay please PM me.
Thank you. Margaret definitely needs one of those mystery angels about now.
Prayers lifted up for your sister-in-law. May the Lord be with her.
Through the prayers of the Theotokos, O Lord have mercy.
Prayers for Margaret, her daughter, your wife and you, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Prayers up: From A Messianic family- Yahweh In the name of Yeshua HaMashiach—bless this family with health, strength, and remove the situation that is the cause of illness and harm. Restore them O Lord of all. For grace and blessings we pray for their healing and restoration!
Prayers on their way.
You and your loved ones are in my prayers.
Praying for your request right now.
I’ll be saying prayers all week for your wife’s sister.
O Lord, we come before you as your children. We need your help, dear God. You know all the details, but we know it pleases you for us to come to you as our Father to ask for the things we need and want. We lift up the situation with steve86’s family members in India. Please send your angels there to help all those affected by this building collapse. Place your powerful hand on this family, we beseech you, especially the one who was seriously wounded. Raise her up, we pray, and let this time be a time for the family drawing closer to you and to each other. Please restore all the wounded to health and let everyone turn to you for comfort and salvation. In Jesus’ name we pray these things. Amen.
Thank you very much. There is a Mexican-American Messianic family (or a very closely related “denomination”) - a few doors from us who no doubt will be praying as well when they find out. Thank you!
There apparently were three individual apartments in the building affected by the partial collapse of the floor overhead.
Believe it or not, this is not the first building collapse poor Margaret has experienced!
We hope that as the workday starts that something will be done.
The apartment as I understand it is just a short distance from a well-known business district and train station.
You would think some kind of emergency services or city-utility people could get involved.
Thank you very much, 2nd amendment mama. I have not been back to that other thread yet; sorry for any rudeness on my part.
Prayers for help and comfort for Margaret and all those injured.
Thank you to all those praying on the thread or otherwise who I have not specifically thanked.
Prayers that Margaret may get the help she needs.
And prayers for you and your wife too.
...praying in Israel...
Rosary and a skipped breakfast for her and them.
Immediate prayers going right now for your family.
