My platelet count has dropped to 61,000; and, the cataracts in both of my
eyes have developed to such an extent that I now have double vision. My
eyeglasses are nearly worthless at this point. Please pray that my
physicians will collaborate so that I may have both cataracts removed very
soon, and complete a preventive colonoscopy to check for new polyps. May
God be glorified in my poor prayer and suffering.

We are asking for your prayers for our daughter Tricia & her baby. She is
26 1/2 weeks along but due to some faulty cord issues the baby has been
compromised since the start. Developmentally the baby is about 3 1/2 weeks
behind so more like a 23 week baby. The doctors knew they would have to
deliver the baby early & were having Trish come in for daily ultrasounds
until christmas eve when they realized she has preclampsia which can become
very dangerous for her as well. The goal of course is to keep the baby in
as long as possible. Please pray for Tricia's healing & the baby's safe
delivery. May God's will be done. Thank you, your prayers mean so much. A
Blessed Christmas to all of you. Alan & Maureen

family (inc. my father, Waldo- who is Leonard's older brother by 8 years).

Prayers for Judy, my precious "devout Baptist" friend who's recently been
suffering with colitis and gastritis and they're still looking for what
else ... . She is trying hard not to let her life become focused on her
"conditions" and to cooperate with God's grace for her healing and
wellbeing ... and suffering.
Please pray for a special intention for our family: reconciliation with
God in his Church, with ourselves, and with one another, in Christ.
Please pray for Kelley, a young woman whose vocation is being discerned.
Please pray that she grows in faith and the art of conversation with God as

to consider God's will and the alternatives. Thank you.
For the happy repose of the soul of Martha O'Connor Canfield, and for her
For young Joseph Barnes, with colorectal cancer, for whom we've prayed
before. He underwent a long surgical procedure Dec. 30, is participating
in some research tests for treating the disease; that Our Lord will bring
something very good to him and to his wife of one year, that they grow in
their capacity for nuptial love through their shared suffering, sacrifice,
and togetherness in this time and place set apart from ordinary life.
For Margaret Mynatt, for healing and wellbeing according to Our Lord's
gracious will for her and her family.
For Brian, that he not be so anxious, nor go ahead of grace, but learn to
rest in our Lord's will for him and his wife, his vocation, and his work.
