Praying and Fasting for Leah--URGENT

Got an email yesterday from a friend:

I thought that I might pass this along to you all. A relative of ours, a 10 year old girl, has been diagnosed with cancer. She fell ill earlier this week, and apparently it is throughout her body. She has days to live.

Any prayer time that you can spare will be appreciated.

---------------
We'd all like to begin praying and fasting together for Leah, and I've typed

up a few suggestions below. It would be wonderful to obtain a miracle for Leah through the intercession of John Paul II so that his cause for canonization as a saint can be moved forward. Would you please forward these suggested prayers to anyone who might be interested? I'll have copies at the hospital as well.

Thank you and God bless!

PRAYERS AND WORKS FOR LEAH WILLOVER

(Ten year old daughter of Paul & Valerie (Leatherby) Willover diagnosed this week with cancer of the liver)

“…God did not make death, and he does not delight in the death of the living. For he created all things that they might exist, and the generative forces of the world are wholesome, and there is no destructive poison in them, and the dominion of Hades is not on earth. For righteousness is immortal” (Wisdom 1:13-16). And Jesus, the Son of God, sent by the Father, came to ‘give sight to the blind, to make the lame walk, to cleanse the lepers, to give hearing to the deaf, to raise up the dead and go preach the good news to the poor’ (cf. Luke 7:22). Since, ‘two or three gathered together’ can ask the Father anything, in Jesus’ Name, we join together to ask for the healing of our beloved Leah.

All welcome to participate! Do as little or much as you are able.

DAILY PRAYERS

THE ROSARY: Monday—Joyful Mysteries, Tuesday—Sorrowful, Wednesday—Glorious, Thursday—Luminous, Friday—Sorrowful, Saturday—Joyful, Sunday—Glorious). Please try to pray this with your family, each evening. If not, pray wherever: on a walk, in the car, etc.

THE CHAPLET OF DIVINE MERCY: Said to be the best prayer for the sick and dying. Preferably, said at 3 pm, the hour at which Jesus died on the cross.

PRAYER TO OBTAIN A HEALING THROUGH THE INTERCESSION OF JOHN PAUL II: said for nine days, beginning this Friday, July 14—Saturday, July 22nd. If the healing does not take place, we will continue saying the prayer each day until it does!

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.

FASTING, for those who can give a little bit more!

Jesus said: “Some demons can only be cast out through prayer and fasting.”
In Medjugorje, the Blessed Mother has stated over and over again that prayer and fasting are the ways to obtain everything.

I'm praying and fasting (at least a little, fasting is not my strong suit). Also posted a link to this post on my blog.
