Prayer request – UPDATED September 13, 2010

Posted by Tantumblogo in Admin, General Catholic.

A distant relation of mine (more, my wife’s) was seriously wounded in Afghanistan on Friday.  He is Marine Mark Juarez.  I know some readers keep fairly extensive prayer lists.  If you would be so kind, say a word for his recovery.  He may be on his way to Landstuhl in Germany soon, indicating a pretty serious injury. 

We pray near nightly for our servicemen and women serving this nation in unpopular wars.  We pray they not be forgotten, that they may be strengthened by God and receive great blessings for their service to others, and that their families may be sustained during the trial of their absence.  We should pray more.  As Jesus said, “no greater love hath a man than this, to lay down his life for his friends” [Jn 15:13]

UPDATE: Mark has been downgraded to very serious condition and will be flown to the United States, Walter Reed Army Hospital more than likely, tomorrow.  He has served 5 tours in the mid-east.  He is a husband and father.  Please pray for him, in your charity.
