Prayer Request

My mother has been admitted to Hartford (CT) Hospital for emergency surgery. She is 83 and blessed with four children, seven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren who love her. But I cannot get to her bedside in time from half a world away.

You have all been so generous in response to my prayer requests for the people of Maseno, Kenya. This one is for my mother. Please pray for Laura and for the people who are tirelessly and skillfully caring for her. Asante sana.

"Almighty God, we entrust all who are dear to us to thy never-failing care and love, for this life and the life to come, knowing that thou art doing for them better things than we can desire or pray for, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen." (For those we Love, The Book of Common Prayer)
