Fwd: Dying Child in Nashville
>Dear fellow list members:
>I know it is unusual to ask for prayers for a non-Orthodox Christian, but
>I promised my brother that I would. He is also a non-Orthodox
>Christian. However, he is asking for prayers from ANYONE and is not
>choosey who participates in these prayers.
>The child is in Nashville, if anyone near there could go and visit him or
>pray for him, if his Baptist father will allow this.
>I have told my brother we will ask all the Saints who we pray to for
>healing to pray for this 12-year-old child, who has no mother. We have
>sent a copy of an icon of the Holy Theotokos to my brother with the words
>"The Mother of all the motherless".
>We have also told him that we will ask The Blessed Virgin to pray for
>Brian and ask Her Son, Jesus, to heal Brian. We are asking for a miracle,
>if God wills.
>I have sent an E-mail to Fr. Gregory Williams in Liberty, TN, and asked
>for prayers and visitations from anyone in the area.
>Thank you for your prayers and efforts.
