With my little prayer book and little book of prayer requests tucked inside my fuel belt, I headed out at 6:30 a.m. to begin a 20 mile run for the sick. Seven people requested prayers for a friend or family member. I shall briefly mention them here and so if you come across my website, please do pray for them, too.
For Shawn, 34 years old who has cancer; for the cousin of "Runner1996", 26 years old who will undergo a double mastectomy this Wednesday; for Jasmine's son who has leukemia, for Margo's mom who has COPD, for Monte's wife who is recovering from a 2nd mastectomy after 16 years, for Cecile's 3-year old son, Diego who was diagnosed with autism, and for Sheila's 3-year old son, Gabby, who contracted whooping cough.
May they overcome their illness and offer their suffering to God, and may their faith be even stronger as they bear the pain of their illness. Please bless their families and loved ones and all those that give care for them.
My heart goes out to each one of you. I did a successful but difficult run. I prayed the rosary the whole time and it was reciting the rosary that kept me going when I started to get tired. But my pain was nothing compared to what you are going through right now. So please accept my offering of a run in your honor. God bless.
The following are pictures of the churches I stopped by to pray for all of you. God bless!
