- Prayers for Andy and Kim Bobsin from Jefferson, IN.
- Our prayers are with a wonderful community member working hard to heal — Shelly Hanchuk.
- Having a “breast friend” currently finishing up round 7 of 8 chemotherapy sessions has definitely given me an appreciation of what this disease puts women through! My prayer though is for her to realize her strength and how many people right now in the world that are drawing strength from her! She is a mother of three young boys, a wife, sister and good friend to many! Through this battle she has maintained her dignity, her drive to be a great mom-even when it meant braving a freezing cold hockey rink just so her son would have his mom at his last game of the season! She has maintained her zest for fitness and love of fashion even though neither seemed like a priority when even the energy to get out of bed seemed exhausting! Julie you are an inspiration to all of us and every life you touch!!! Xoxo
- Heartfelt prayers for 6 year old Erin Mansell from FlinFlon.

- Please pray for Tom. He is a 17 year old teenage boy in Regina. His cancer has returned.
- Prayers for my mom, for good recovery from her second bout. Love from her daughters.
- This prayer is for my Auntie Terri. She is suffering from multiple types of cancer and is in a lot of pain. My prayer for her, is to be pain free! Nothing is worse then watching someone you love go through so much pain and bad news and you can do nothing about it. My wish is that she will be able to spend Christmas with our whole family and for one day feel no pain. Auntie Terri I love you so much and continue to pray for you everyday. You are always in my thoughts!

- Friend having lumpectomy for breast cancer. Hoping for a speeding recovery and return to health and happiness.
- A best friend and sister-in-law Norma M. She is the kindest most caring person I know and I love her dearly!! She is a great mother to my neices and nephews. Please add more prayers (I do it several times a day!) to her speedy recovery from breast cancer. She is currently going through chemotharapy and it takes a toll on her mind, body and spirit. We have just begun our battle with cancer and I pray daily that Norma gets the strength to make it through each day.
- Yuma-Linda – A bright light in the lives of many – who we know will be just fine – but has to get by this bump in the road.
Into all of our lives comes the mystery of illness and pain. this veiled visitor, sickness, should always be greeted with prayer. First Nations people believed that medicine should never be given to a sick person unless prayer is also given They recognized the profound relationship between physical health and that of the inner person and the relationship between human lives and the Divine Mystery.
Illness can come to us personally, to a member of our family or a close friend. When sickness comes to our family, it is an occasion to join our hearts in prayer for the healing of the sick person, whether child or adult. When we ourselves or members of our family are sick and need medicine, we too should let that medicine be accompanied by prayer.
After we have recovered through prayer, medical care and rest, we can lift up our hearts in gratitude for the gift of health. this gesture can be not only a prayer of thanksgiving but also of rededication to seeking a constant condtition of good health through proper diet, rest, recreation and prayerful living.
Often, we are asked to pray for a friend or member of the family who is sick. This prayer allows us to encircle the sick person with the power of God as well as with our own love and affection. By praying in times of sickness, we can become more conscious of our interdependency upon one another as well as of our intimate relationship with God.
To turn at times of illness, only to medical science, even with all of its marvellous gifts and knowledge, is to treat only half the person. By prayer and medicine, we do indeed find what the American Indian called “good medicine”, a healing for body and soul.
