Gillian Boardman

Please pray for our son, Dominic. He has been on two crutches for 7 years in July. Please pray he will one day walk again, that he will get some of his life back after all these years. He is just so brave; never complains; just keeps going. Have mercy on him. Don’t let him suffer anymore. Please pray for me, Gillian, that I will be cured of my fears, phobias, and anxiety; that I will get the strength and courage to overcome and face all my demons. Please help me find peace of mind and body. Please pray my mind will be healed and calm. Forgive me for my weakness. Please hear our prayer; let our cry come to thee. Forgive us all our sins. Thanks be to God and all the saints.
