Kathryn Elizabeth Amish
Our friend, child, mother, wife and beloved child of God





Dear Jesus, 

We offer our prayers up to you for Kathy. We know she is your precious child and that you hold her in the palm of your hand during this time of trial. We ask you to protect her, strengthen her, give her joy, peace, strength and perseverance. We ask that you bless her family and friends to know the ways to help and encourage her and her family. We ask that you inspire and enlighten her doctors and surgeons. We pray that you give them wisdom, clarity of mind, and steadiness of hand. We thank you for the gift of Kathy, David, Abby and Gavin. We thank you for the opportunity to see your hands at work in her healing and recovery!

We ask our dear friends, the saints, to pray for her as well. Dearest friends in heaven, we know that your pure hearts are full of love for all of us. And when we ask for your help, you are ready and eager to be at our side. Like St. Therese of Lisieux, all of you want to “spend your heaven doing good on earth.”

So dear holy friends in heaven, we call upon you to join us and storm heaven with your prayers for our friend Kathy!

Official prayer to ask favors through the intercession Pope John Paul II

O Blessed Trinity, we thank you for having graced the church with Pope John Paul II and for allowing the tenderness of your fatherly care, the glory of the cross of Christ, and the splendor of the Holy Spirit, to shine through him. Trusting fully in your infinite mercy and in the maternal intercession of Mary, he has given us a living image of Jesus the Good Shepherd, and has shown us that holiness is the necessary measure of ordinary Christian life and is the way of achieving eternal communion with you. Grant us, by his intercession, and according to your will, the graces we implore, hoping that he will soon be numbered among your saints. Amen.


Dearest Savior and Divine Physician,
We offer these prayers up to you in complete confidence. We know that you love us beyond measure. We know that you hold our every need in the palm of your hand. Hear our prayers now, for the complete healing and recovery of Kathy Amish, and answer them, in your great mercy.

AMEN.
