Please keep us in your prayers

Dear Friends,

My dad has had a stroke. I am flying home to be with my mom and to see my dad. I think that my siblings and I might alternate who visits over the next week or so. I have no idea how this is going to turn out. I am grateful knowing that I have so many loving and caring friends and family to help us out. Yet, at this moment, I most need to pray:

Mi Shebeirach avoteinu v'imoteinu, May the One who blessed our ancestors, Abraham and Sarah, Isaac and Rebekah, Jacob, Leah, and Rachel, please bless and heal my father. May he soon return to our family with a complete healing of mind, body and spirit. Please bless his doctors and caretakers with knowledge to do what is right, and allow them to do the holy work of healing so that he can come back to us in wholeness.

God, please help me cope with this uncertainty. Please quell my fear, calm my heart, and keep me strong. I am so scared - scared for my dad, scared for my family, and scared for myself. I have no idea what is ahead, and I will need you, God, to give me strength and hope.

Blessed are You, Adonai, Healer of the Sick. Amen.

Keeping the prayers going. Maybe this is why most of the kids were brought together....to hold on and support during your Dad's recovery.
