Hi Phil,
By the inspiration of the Holy Spirit (I’m sure) via your Prayer request for Garrett that I read earlier, I thought you might like to read this prayer just published and if inclined please pass it on your prayer community distribution list.

Church of the Presentation – Prayer Tree Ministry “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”  (Philippians 4:6)  
We have a special prayer request from Susie Smith, a prayer volunteer, who learned about a tragic accident that has currently paralyzed Garrett FitzGerald, a young man who had lived in Suffern and was an active member of our Presentation Youth Ministry in the late 90’s.  Garrett was working as a Federal Agent of the United States Secret Service when he was seriously injured in a head on collision in New Hampshire on December 29th.  He sustained major injuries to his spinal cord and has no feeling from his chest down.  The wedding to his beloved fiancé, Joan, planned for March of this year took place yesterday at Boston Mass General Hospital in his ICU room. He will soon experience a very long road of intense rehabilitation which is expected to be grueling, both emotionally and physically. Let us all lift up Garrett and Joan in prayer that they will feel the presence of Our Lord in their life and look to Him for support, comfort and healing.  
Great God of Peace, who loves all that You have made, we come to You and ask Your blessing on Garrett and his wife, Joan. You Lord are the miracle worker, for through the Holy Spirit Your gift of healing is alive. You Lord are our Medicine, our Healer, and Redeemer. Help Garrett, his family and friends to be aware that You walk with them during this time of pain and suffering and are guiding the doctors who care for him. You know his every need to restore him to good health in body, spirit, and mind, for You are the Divine Physician, who created the universe. Your touch can make whole every cell in his body so that he may experience in the depths of his being Your mercy, Your comforting presence, and grace to accept Your Holy Will. May the radiance of Your loving face permeate all the circumstances of his life today and in the future. May we all who pray, always give thanks for Your presence and faithful love. In Jesus name we pray for these blessings. Amen
For I am the LORD your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. Isaiah 41:13
Take courage and be strong. Fear not, and be not dismayed, because the Lord thy God is with you. Joshua 1:9  
In consideration of the sensitive nature of prayer requests received, we ask that you please keep the details confidential.
Thank you,
Prayer Tree Ministry

JFACEBOOK: Fitzgerald, Garret [MC2007] was the injured Secret Service agent in NH accident



John Fitzgerald

Hello Mr. Reinke,

I know you are very involved with Manhattan College alumni, so I just wanted to inform you of a fellow Jasper who is in need of help. Garret Fitzgerald (no relation) was involved in a serious car accident last week and was critically injured. I thought it might be helpful if you could post a link to his Go Fund Me page on Jasper Jottings. I have posted a link below to his Go Fund Me page, as well as an article about what happened.

Thank you in advance and I hope you have happy 2016!

John Fitzgerald

Critically injured Secret Service agent Garrett FitzGerald — unable to move or feel anything below his shoulders since an on-duty car accident in New Hampshire last week — is determined to serve his nation again, and the agency’s chief has promised he will, the agent’s mother and fiancee told the Herald.

“If he could go back to work right now, he would,” said fiancee Joan Lyall, 28, a speech pathologist at Boston Children’s Hospital. “It’s been a dream of his to be a federal agent. In whatever capacity he can, he’ll be ready to go back.”

JFOUND: Traore, Franck [MC2007] “can fly a plane”



Every summer, Toronto Raptors GM Masai Ujiri travels to Africa to train young players. The goal: to change the continent.

Behind him, the camp’s six foreign coaches stand in a line. Ujiri turns to them as he finishes telling the kids just how hard it is to make the NBA, how only one player in the program’s 12-year history, the seven-foot-one Solomon Alabi, has done it. He notes that not a single one of the coaches played in the league, then adds himself to the tally, because he didn’t make it either. “But all of them used basketball as a tool,” he says, employing a GOA slogan. “And basketball took them places.”

He gestures at Franck Traore, anchoring the left end of the line of coaches, and tells the kids that Franck was born in Burkina Faso, that he went to the U.S. for high school, played Div. I ball at Manhattan College and now works for NBA Africa. “This big-ass dude can fly a plane,” Ujiri adds to close out the resumé. “I wouldn’t get on it, but he can fly a plane.”
