Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration
When I was recovering from my tonsillectomy, alone for the most part, things got pretty dark. After days alone, in pain, with little sleep, I felt like I was at the end of my rope. I’m sure all the pain medicine added to my dispair. I was never a Catholic, or even a very devout Christian. I don’t remember how I came upon the Franciscan Sisters’ website, but there I was. The Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration hold 24 hour, 365 days a year prayer. They have for many many years. I read that anyone who needs to can make a request for prayer to the Sisters. I was willing to try anything. I filled out the online request form.
I was told that for the next seven days, the Sisters would be praying for me. Wow! That’s powerful. I don’t care what your faith is- the thought of that gives great comfort. I needed comfort- badly! My recovery was still hard, but I took just a little comfort in knowledge that someone was praying for me. I also remember feeling anxious as the 7th day arrived. By the time it did, I was on the mend and knew that it was others’ turn to receive the prayers of the Sisters.
People who know me personally would probably be very surprised that I participated in this. They’d be even more surprised to learn that I was posting a link to the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration’s website. I rarely even go to church. I don’t care. It helped me. It might help you.
So here’s the link. Check it out. I wish you comfort and good health.

I’ve really enjoyed this website! Even though I’m on Day 8 of my recovery, it’s been VERY helpful. Just wish I had found it before the surgery.
Greg, you sound like an amazing person. And I have so much respect for someone that will even post a link to a nun’s webpage, just in case it might help others. That’s what it’s all about, right?
Thanks again for all your help and everything you’ve done to help others!
Hey Travis. I’m so glad that you’ve found the site helpful. Day 8 was horrible for me. Hope it’s better for you. Take care!
Please pray for me. Will be taking Nclex on the 10th. This will be my second time taking this exam. I have worked so hard for this. Failing is not an option. I lost my job recently as well. Please pray that I do well and see the light again. I want to be happy again. God please be with me through out this journey. Thank you
Best of luck to you Beth. Go get ’em!
