Prayers are being answers for the person with the crick in the neck: slowly but surely I'm getting better... I can do hobbies and light housework, simple stretches, walk/kneel/stand etc. so can go to Mass Sunday (PTL!)... still having trouble getting up after laying down though -- keep praying πŸ™‚

This is a prayer I pray every day in a prayerbook I have, and I think anyone would benefit from praying it for whatever type of suffering they're going through, too...

"My Father, if it be possible, let this chalice of suffering pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will. If you do not will it to pass, then I accept to drink of it with love, obedient to Your will, and uniting it to the redemptive sufferings of Your Son, Jesus.

Mary, please help me in this my suffering. Intercede with your Spouse, the Consoler, that he may be close to me, giving me strength to bear my cross with love. Merciful Mother, I offer you all the merits of my suffering. I give you permission to use them in whatever way you will. May they be for God's greatest possible glory and the salvation of souls. Also, I ask you to remember my family and friends and the intentions I hold in the silence of my heart. (Pause to recall your intentions)..."

I developed a crick in my neck which has turned into a sore shoulder that has become debilitating (hopefully just temporarily). I think it's probably from lifting weights too much (over my head in different ways, and straining my shoulder). I can't drive safely because it hurts to turn my head. It hurts to go from sitting to standing, etc. I hope to recover soon because I enjoy how we kneel/ stand/ sit at Mass! I also like to be able to take care of myself and do hobbies, and it gives me muscle cramps to even move right now. πŸ™ I can still read/ write, thankfully! I'm realizing what a blessing it is to simply have a head/ arms that normally work together to do everyday things. I'm trying to do treatments (heating pad, stretching, shoulder massage) at home to improve it and hope to be healed with the help of extra prayers a.s.a.p. I also have the opportunity to just sit and pray to offer this up with the Chaplet of Divine Mercy -- I don't want to waste the suffering -- it could help others who are suffering too.

Mark 4:20 says: "But those that were sown upon the good soil are the ones who hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold.”

I printed out 30 copies of page 9 of the Aug. 15th bulletin, to pass out the flyer for FOOD FROM THE HEART to pass out (on neighborly porches by my house and maybe along the way to our parish too -- as long as there's not a "no solicitor" sign so that they won't be mad at us). I'm hoping that others might print out additional copies to pass out to their neighbors (or even mail it to family/friends you haven't seen at church in a while ... maybe they will be called back by kindness!) Together we can reach that "hundredfold!" πŸ˜€ (Remember to tape up a flyer to remind yourself that they're collecting all the food for Catholic Charities at St. Josephs -- next Saturday: Aug. 21st (1-6 pm), and Sunday, Aug. 22nd (8 am-12 noon).

I only share this to inspire you to action: today after I heard the announcement from Fr. Kevin, I went to the grocery store right after Mass -- I don't usually shop on Sundays, but this was to do a good deed -- and bought a big bag of raisin bran, a bag of rice, oatmeal, and a big bag of trail mix. It's not much, but if more people donate what they can, it adds up! πŸ˜€ Our families are so blessed with more than enough food, let's share with those who are in need right now. (Let's aim for low-sodium, low-sugar, healthy foods too).

" β€˜I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” ~Jesus (Matthew 25:40)

I used to pray for a husband, but I switched to praying to be preserved to simply stay single for the Lord, because I believe it's the best way for me personally to prepare for Heaven.

O Lord, the helper of the helpless, the hope of those who are past hope, the savior of the tempest-tossed, the harbor of the voyagers, the physician of the sick. You know each soul and our prayer, each home and its need. Become to each one of us what we most dearly desire, receiving us all into your kingdom, making us children of the light.

Pour on us your peace and love, O Lord our God. Amen.

Please offer prayers of healing for my Uncle, Sam Posey. He had a medical emergency while flying home to Seattle. He is now at a hospital in San Francisco, waiting to be transferred to UCSF(praying for a bed to open up). He has not woken up and it’s a mystery to his doctors. Please Lord, guide Sam back to us! Thank you!

I stand before you in faith, O God. I go forward in hope. Poor and a beggar, I want only our love. O Fire, O Love, come into us. Be our leader and our light. Be the fire that consumes and burns in the repentant sinner. Be our paraclete, our comforter, our advocate and helper in all things for which we pray. Show us what we believe. Grant what we hope for. And make our face shine like the face of God. Amen.
