Good Afternoon All,
Please. Allow me to share with you a note and special prayer request added to our prayer request for Agent Garrett Fitzgerald, A good friend, Jerry Lynch, shared the prayer request and special prayer from Church Of The Presentation, Prayer Tree Ministry,New Jersey. Over the years, several of our Members from the Retreat Team, Retreat Attendees and Alumni Board Members have attended The Church Of The Presentation. And we have had Retreat Speakers from there, Jerry Lynch being one of our Speakers. The prayer is beautiful and raises the volume for Garrett, his Wife Joan and their Family. Thank you. God Bless.

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.
