His son is overwhelmed, too, and asked if Jacob and another buddy could get together this weekend to do something fun. He just wants a day to feel normal again, I guess.

I'm still praying for a miracle for my friend, but if that's not to be, please help me pray for some peace before he's taken home. I know it would mean so much to Steve to be able to spend time with his family.

Bless his heart.
Not at all! I come here to check it and ask for prayers, as needed.

Thoughts & prayers are w/ Steve & his family, and you & yours too, Brad.

I will be praying for Steve, Paula, and Mark. Miracles can happen.

I do not want to seem pushy, especially since some people do not believe in praying to Saints, but if you're willing try saying this novena:

http://www.thesacredheart.com/nrita.htm

Saint Rita is the saint of the impossible. I have prayed to her many times and almost all, if not all, of my prayers have been answered (which is a miracle). I mean that because I only say the novena pertaining to health issues and such. If your prayer gets answered, you are supposed to share with everyone that you prayed to Saint Rita. That was what I was always told and I have no problem doing so when miracles happen!

I will say the novena for Steve now and continue praying.

Thanks for this, Jennifer! You are NOT being pushy. Those who believe in prayer come to this thread because it IS entitled Prayer Requests. I truly appreciate your sharing this.

Thanks for sharing, Brad. Like Momnan said, we can lift each other up in times like these. Where else can we be a part of a site such as this where we can share Christmas, maintain positive attitudes toward each other, and bring our heartfelt prayer requests about ANYTHING? This is the real Spirit of Christmas.
