Please pass this Prayer to our Prayer Warriors in behalf of my sister-in-law Agnes (Mimi) Barcinas of Belleville, IL, who is currently undergoing cancer treatment at St. Louis University Hospital, Missouri. Thank you for all the constant support.

God bless all our brothers & sisters at CFC worldwide.

To all my relatives & friends, please pray for Agnes (Mimi) Barcinas. She needs all your prayers & support.

Thank you,

Dear Jesus,

Divine Physician and Healer of the Sick, we turn to You in this time of illness.
O dearest Comforter of the Troubled, alleviate our worry and sorrow with Your gentle

love, and grant us the grace and strength to accept this burden.

Dear God, we place our worries in Your hands. We ask that You restore Your servant                           Agnes Barcinas to health again. Above all, grant us the grace to acknowledge Your holy                             will and know that whatsoever You do, You do for the love of us.


Thank you for your prayers for Leo and Ofelia. Leo is done with his work abroad and traveling home as we speak.  But turns out, Ofelia got sick while I was with her and she had a successful surgery.  Thank you for those prayers!  Please say a prayer that Ofelia will come back to being herself as the light of Christ.  When you get older it takes us alittle longer, ya know?  She’s getting better everyday.
Thank you and God bless you,

Dear CFC Family,

Thank you for all your prayers for Ceferina Francia. We are forwarding the message below from her son, Joe Francia, ANCOP Head of West C.  Even as we thank God for His miracle, let us all continue to pray for our sister Ceferina.

Update on Nanay Ceferina:

Brothers and Sisters thank you sa mga prayers. God hears
our prayer.

The doctors expected complete deterioration of her condition

They could not perform Dialysis because of her very weak condition.

on the 8th day because of her infected kidney. She became bloated.

Miracles do happen, on the 7th day her kidney started to
function. Her kidney is now discharging normal volume of water.
She did not undergo Dialysis. My mother is out of the ICU now, but
she’s still weak.

Please continue to pray for my mother until she’s completely healed.

Thank you to all, but most importantly Praise and Glory to our Lord and Ssaviour!

Ed and Irene Kowalski….  Update on Irene:   hospice is coming in.   Please pray for Ed…. He had scans done and they showed masses developed in some areas…going for biopsies…   please pray for both of them and for their family.

Update:  Jack Merkel -  he is home … praise God.  But please continue to pray for him (Parkinson’s and other health issues)…. And for his wife Lorraine as she struggles with decisions and with his care.

Let not your heart be troubled.  John 14:1

I have been requested to help Rogelio “DonDon” Lanuza who has been convicted in Saudi Arabia of killing a Saudi in 2000.
The sentence is death by beheading

But he is innocent because he killed the man in self-defense. I have investigated the case and the evidence is overwhelming that his life was threatened and he was wounded on his neck and his hands with the dagger owned by the dead man, which Dondon was able to wrestle out to stab the Saudi attacker. None of these facts were brought out in the saudi Court because the victim was Saudi and the accused was Filipino.

Since 2001, his case is on appeal and the dead man’s family demands P35 million to free him from the beheading.
It is too much money so that it is almost equivalent to the dead man’s family saying yes to his execution.

But I believe in God’s mercy. I believe in God’s almighty power. I believe that with God, nothing is impossible.

“Almighty Father, Loving God, have mercy on Dondon Lanuza and free him from his jaÍl in Saudi Arabia. You are just and merciful. We ask this in the mighty name of Your Son Jesus Christ. Amen.”

It is always so good and inspiring to share the miracles that the Lord allows us to see.  Here is just one of them:

Brothers and Sisters, thank you for all your prayers, my
mother surpassed the critical stage of her stroke.

She just opened her eyes and can communicate now.
Her doctor admits it was a miracle.

God is Good! All the time. PRAISE GOD!

WGHcoming back to your loving fold
Merciful and mysterious God,
Your works in us, we are amazed! Your miracles day after day, we are blown away! Your healing touch, we feel each moment!  We praise you and we adore you!
Every minute and every hour of our living day, dear Lord, we see joyous conversion of hearts, we witness our friends and loved ones turning back to you.  Today, mighty God, we offer to you WGH, whose heart seem to fade away from you;  yet we believe that you have good plans for WGH; plans far greater than what we, sinners, can think of.  We pray that in your own time, WGH will come back to you, with renewed faith that your love heals and restores broken hearts. Doubtful minds, you will transform to faith that you are God and Savior.  To you, we now surrender everything inside and outside of WGH.
Thank you, healing God, for listening to our cry for help.

Vassula has asked for the following prayer requests to be forwarded:

Please pray for Cardinal Toppo. He is facing many difficulties and problems in his archdiocese. Besides, he has been given a big responsibility as the President of the Conference of Bishops of India. 

Please pray for Sister Fidelis in whose room Vassula stayed in Jamshedpur (India).  Sr. Fidelis is not well at all   She is having breathing problems.

The latest on Cody is that he appears to be improving.  Thanks for the prayers!
“Positive news report about Cody”.
Cody saw the neurologist the last week in August, and the abscess is diminishing.  This is encouraging since it decreases the need for surgery at this time. He had an appointment the first week of September with the Infectious Disease Specialist.  I remember when Cody had a similar infection when he was 5 years old that the antibiotic therapy was on going for several months.  Hopefully, he will continue to make good progress. Thanks  to you, John,  Claudia, Loretta, and All of the wonderful people who are praying for Cody. Please pass this on to them’.
