Photo Captures Image of an 'Angel' in Hospital Hallway reported a story on December 23, 2008 regarding fourteen year old Chelsea Banton of recovering miraculously from recurrent bouts of pneumonia. According to the news report, she was on a respirator for nearly eight weeks. Several attempts were made to wean her off the respirator without any success. However, some are saying that reports of an Angel supposedly seen on the surveillance camera at the hospital is responsible for her miraculous recovery. Fox News (Fox and Friends) reported the story with an inspirational interview with Dr. Ophelia Garmon-Brown. The story can be viewed at the following link: Caught on Camera

Prayerful Healing for Children

Jesus said, "Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them;
for the kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these."
Matthew 19:14

Prayerful Healing for Children

Heavenly father
from the moment of creation you've
predestined the salvation of your people
through the resurrection of your
divine Son Jesus
in order for all to believe.

Through his miraculous words,
Lazarus has risen,
eyesight is restored,
leprosy healed,
demons flee;
transformed drinking water into wine,
wonders for all to witness by God's design.

Merciful Father
We humbly petition thee to heal and save our children from illness
beseeching for the grace of deliverence on behalf of all who suffer
from infirmities of the mind, body, and soul.

Almighty God
We thank thee for hearing our pleas
and restoring our children to health
through tender mercy and healing grace
from your divine Son Jesus

Prayerful Healing is written for anyone in need of encouraging words, especially families with children. I was inspired to write the prayer as a result of what I believe is a miraculous healing through Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ of a heart ailment and from years of suffering painful headaches. Through the blessings and grace of God, I was healed of a heart arrhythmia known as Atrial Fibrillation. The medical condition is treated with Lanoxin, a cardiac medicine. However, I've not used the medication for over ten years. I was treated by Dr. Gilbert Mandel of Denville, NJ, for the disorder. Additionally, I was healed from years of suffering painful headaches after countless visits to physicians with treatments that went to no avail.

Through power of prayer and Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick, God's healing grace cured me. The healing sacrament is administered through the church. I was anointed with the healing sacrament by Father Richard Tartaglia of Saint Mary's Church, Denville, NJ.

In James 5, Verse 14-15 the following is noted: "Is anyone among you sick? He should summon the presbyters of the church, and they should pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven."

I give praise, glory, and thanks to God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit for all the spiritual gifts and blessings.

Sacred Heart of Jesus and The Miracle Prayer

The Miracle Prayer

Lord Jesus, I come before Thee, just as I am, I am sorry for my sins, I repent of my sins, please forgive me. In Thy Name, I forgive all others for what they have done against me. I renounce Satan, the evil spirits and all their works. I give Thee my entire self, Lord Jesus, I accept Thee as my Lord God and Savior. Heal me, change me, strengthen me in body, soul, and spirit.

Come Lord Jesus, cover me with Thy Precious Blood, and fill me with Thy Holy Spirit, I love Thee Lord Jesus, I praise Thee Lord Jesus, I thank Thee Jesus, I shall follow Thee every day of my life. Amen.

Mary, My Mother, Queen of Peace, all the Angels and Saints, please help me. Amen.

Say this prayer faithfully, no matter how you feel. When you come to the point where you sincerely mean each word with all your heart, Jesus will change your whole life in a very special way. You will see.

The above prayer can be found on catholic websites.
