Prayer request

Post by purple rose » Sat Jan 28, 2012 1:49 pm

Today my landlady was rushed to hospital after taking an overdose and subsequently falling out of bed and injuring herself (she is in her seventies). She has been plagued by ill health for more than 50 years. According to her Doctors her ongoing physical health problems were probably caused by organophosphate poisoning which occurred in the early 1960's as a result of coming into contact with the substance used at that time for sheep dipping. Since then she has suffered severe stomach problems which over the decades have resulted in serious mental health issues. A few years ago after her first suicide attempt she was hospitalized for more than 6 months. During that time she consented to electric shock treatments as she felt it was the only course of action left open to her. Since then until today she has been trying to get on with her life with varying degrees of success but it seems the problems with her stomach became too much and she took an action to end her life. An air ambulance arrived about 10 minutes after her husband called the emergency services (the farm is in a fairly remote place and the helicopter was able to get here much quicker than an ambulance partly because the track to the farm is covered in snow and ice) followed about 15 minutes later by an ambulance. Her husband and one of her four children have gone to the hospital to be with her at this very worrying time. Please pray she makes a full recovery from the fall, gets effective treatment for her stomach and her state of mind. Thank you.

May your landlady be well, happy and peaceful. May she be encompassed with healing and peacefulness.

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."

I'm familiar with saying prayers but not in the Buddhist style. :?: Don't know how Buddhists say prayers

Wow, sounds like she has suffered quite a bit now and in the past. Hope she does well, both physically and mentally / spiritually.
