I've been diagnosed with heart failure or cardiomyopathy. Was misdiagnosed earlier and am currenting working with my cardiologist to establish the right kind of medication regimen.

Your prayers would be greatly appreciated, Brothers and Sisters in Christ!

Your unworthy servant,

Alex

O Lord Jesus Christ our God, You patiently endured the scourging and wounding of your sacred body, that You may save the souls and bodies of your people. Look now graciously on the suffering body of your servant Alex, and give him the strength to patiently bear whatever awaits him. Bless the people and all the means which will be used to restore him to health; and grant that he may accept his bodily sufferings as a means of reparation for the salvation of his soul. For You, O Christ our God and Savior, are merciful; and we give glory to You, together with Your eternal Father, and Your all-holy and life-giving Spirit, now and ever, and forever. Amen.

Dear Friends in Christ!

Glory to our Lord, God and Saviour Jesus Christ!

Just a note to thank you for your prayers and to say that I've stopped feeling depressed and sorry for myself. smile

Moving ahead with life in God, being totally resigned to His Will. I'm happy, content and ready to live life to the fullest, throwing myself on God's Mercy completely.

Cheers,

Alex

Thank you very much! What is interesting is that many physicians are telling me that in addition to proper diet, exercise, sleep etc., prayer and meditation are an important component for healing/management of a heart condition.

So now, when my wife sees me praying the hours or psalms and asks me what I'm doing, I tell her I'm "taking my medicine." smile

Cheers, Alex
