The Kids’ Bulletin for Sunday February 19th, 2023 and an Urgent Prayer Request

Dear Friends,

In addition to this week’s Kids’ Bulletin I have a special request for prayers. My five year old son, Gordon, was just diagnosed with a tumour in his spine and is scheduled for surgery this Tuesday (Feb. 14th.) We are praying for a miracle, and asking the intercession of a pious young boy who passed away several years ago, a friend of our family, Nevan Dixon.

Thank you in advance for your prayers!

Dear Nevan, because of your fervent love for the Good Shepherd, we trust that you are with Him in Heaven. Your short life was one of extraordinary wisdom, faith, loyalty and courage, and we ask that we also receive these gifts.
We have come to ask for your intercession on behalf of Gordon, and pray for his immediate and complete healing. We pray that this miraculous recovery will give witness to the glory of God, and bolster the faith of all Canadians – especially those who are struggling with sickness or disease. Please take this special request to Our Lord.
