    Re: Prayer for the Recovery of a Loved One

    Namaste,

    Thank you all for your kind words and compassionate thoughts. After I uploaded my original post, I must have spent several hours in prayer that night before my shrine asking for God's blessing for my friend who earlier than evening I had left in hospital running a high fever, vomiting, losing fluids, etc. I was so shaken I was nearing tears but prayer did help to alleviate my anxiety. Looking upon the kind, tender faces of the murtis in my shrine, I almost felt like God was saying "Don't worry, everything is going to turn out ok. Just relax." Listening to a load of chalisas and stotras on my YouTube playlist helped immensely. Much of my focus was at the Divine Mother that night, I felt so helpless like a lost, crying child.

    Reading over the responses from my dear spiritual brothers and sisters here has moved me a lot. I am happy to update that my friend's fever disappeared almost immediately that evening. I cannot say if my prayers or yours did anything, but the recovery in those 24 hours was nothing short of astonishing. Praise to God in His infinite mercy! My, I feel like I will need to undergo a penance for the weight He has lifted from my shoulders. And thank you so much for your best wishes and advice. I appreciate them a lot.

    Om namah Shivaya

    Re: Prayer for the Recovery of a Loved One

    Namaste dear friends,

    Another update on my friend's progress. He is doing so much better than before. I have been praying to Ganesha everyday to continue removing obstacles that might cause a remission into a sickly state, and if it pleases Him may it stay that way for good. And I want to say thank you so much for contributing your prayers to the Merciful One of Merciful Ones! It has been so comforting to know you have all read this and even let it pass through your minds.

    My sincerest thanks to you all.

    Om namah Shivaya

    Namaste,

    One last request for good wishes for my friend who is undergoing a second (and hopefully final) surgery today. He has undergone so much - over 3 months of this so far, I really do hope this will be the last hurdle. Supposedly this is more of a procedure than anything, but doctors have explained they are not sure what they are expecting to find inside his body. I am praying each moment that Ganesha helps clear obstacles to let them see the root of my friend's problem. He is to go under at lunchtime today.

    I thought I would share to let the forum know I am feeling rather unsettled today but the advice given has been taken. Scripture reading and japa has helped my stress levels. I would just love for this to be over for my friend's sake now.

    Om namah Shivaya

    Hari Om!

    Sunyata,

    You are compassionate beyond compare and am admired for your strength. As you know, jap is so very powerful so please continue. I will do a round for your beloved friend and would encourage other forum members to do likewise as per their convenience. Please continue the updates.

    With the blessings of Ganesha, ANYTHING is possible. May He shower his love upon your friend and guide the professionals who care for him.

    Om

    Namaste C.Smith,

    It really helps to know people are supporting me in spirit for my friend. The operation went smoothly yesterday, thank God, but nothing will really be known or understood until at least a week or two passes. With Ganesha's grace may all obstacles be cleared for good.

    Thank you so much for your prayers!
