Anthony A.
Seven-Year-Old With Eye Trouble

My little brother Anthony---a very talkative (if annoying) and utterly adorable little boy---was injured today, and he is now at the hospital and may need eye surgery. We would gladly accept prayers on his behalf.

The surgery, if it happens, will probably end up happening sometime tonight (June 3-4), and I imagine few people will see this by then; yet I still feel it can do no harm to post it, so that people may hopefully pray for his recovery from all of this.

You may also want to keep in mind my parents and other family members, who are worried sick and may even feel guilty. This was an accident, and no one truly holds any fault for it; a butter knife broke and the blade ended up injuring Anthony. I do not know for sure what will happen if there are complications, but again, I ask you all to pray that everything works out for the best.

I wish I could put a picture up of Anthony; he is one of the cutest children you could ever hope to see. Thanks in advance to all who pray for him and hold us in your thoughts; God bless you all. Amen.

P.S.: I will try to keep posters updated on events; things have happened so fast, and I want to keep any posters informed when he improves and thank them. God bless again.

I'll start:

Dear Lord Our God, Merciful Father and Healer of Ills,

Please bless Anthony, and help him to improve in his eye troubles and everything as quickly as possible; and give him strength and bravery, for this is terrifying for him, and have his surgery and/or his recovery or whatever go as quickly and as best as possible, that he may see as well as he always has. And please bless everybody involved here, everybody in the family as we try to cope with this, and all others like Anthony and us; and thank You, Lord, for all that You have provided, including giving Anthony such good chances to recover, and for providing these kind Beliefnet members to pray for him and all else;

In Jesus' Name,

Hi Merlock, I hope that Anthony has fully recovered from his ordeal.

Dear Lord,
Iím not sure of their current situation, but You know Lord. Please protect Anthony A., Merlock and family from harm. Strengthen their will and courage to face their everyday struggles.

Bless them with good friends, surround them with kind and encouraging people. Heal them of any illnesses, make them well and whole again. Thank you Lord. I pray this in Jesusí name, amen.

Dear Lord, I don't know the out come of this little boys treatment but come to you asking that you will continue to be with this family. It is so awesome to know that his brother has faith in your healing and love. I pray that this family may continue to know you and praise you. Hold them close to you Father and lift them up. Amen

Hi Mr Merlock, Hope Anthony is doing fine.

Dear God I pray to put your hand on Anthony I don't know how he is doing but you do and ask you to be with him at all times and to Bless his family.
In the name of Jesus. Amen

I just randomly checked in on this and found all these prayers from people; thank you. Anthony is now basically totally fine---his hurt eye doesn't really see too well, but all in all it doesn't effect him or the family on a day-to-day basis more than, say, if he were nearsighted. Thanks to everyone for your prayers. :-)
