Nicholas Antony Garcia
My 11 year old son with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

Plesae pray for my son and all the children and young people affected by this cruel muscle wasting disease. Pray for them and their families a treatment will be found. Pray for them to have the strength they will need.

Nicholas is my youngest child whose muscles are slowing wasting away.

Please give me the strength to hold the family together and to be there for each one of my children and my husband.

I want to share this prayer I found in Belief net and have modified it for my son, Nicholas. It is an Irish prayer for a sick brother. Since I am Irish I found this to be appropriate.

Irish Prayer for a Sick Child (Brother)

O Lord, holy Father, creator of the universe, author of its laws, you can bring the dead back to life, and heal those who are sick. We pray for our sick child, Nicholas, that he may feel your hand upon him, renewing his body and refreshing his soul. Show to him the affection in which you hold all your creatures.
- Dimma, a seventh century Irish monk

I pray each and every day something is found to help treat this disease. I count my blessings for all the good people I have come into contact with to help me.

Thank you Lord,

"Morning by morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; morning by morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation" (Psalm 5:3)
Lord, You hear Julie in her need. You can see her tears for her son Nick. You see her unselfish plea for all mothers in pain for their children who are suffering. Only You Lord can change the future of these children. We ask you, in our humble human state, to have mercy on our children! Please Lord, put Your healing power to work through the researchers and doctors working on a cure for these children.
Bless this family with the strength to keep their faith strong and hope undying.
Julie, I pray every night for your family...We must have faith in the promises of our Lord. Love, Joanne

More powerful than human words and actions, may God's healing rays find and protect Nicholas from all harm and cure his disease.

Lord, I believe in you and know that nothing is impossible for You. You have performed many miracles. I ask that you hear Julie's request and prayer and that you keep her family strong.

Lord, We pray for Nick, that Your healing hands be upon him. Humbly we ask for his healing, a cure to this wicked disease working against his body. Our faith in Your power has no end, no boundaries.
