Prayers for Lisa's friends Janice and John

I bid your prayers for Janice and John.

Our blog sister, Lisa Fox posted the following concerning a family in her parish.
We've had a fairly intense few days in my wee parish, as one of our own has died too young after too much suffering. Of your mercy, say a prayer for Janice, who has now joined the saints in glory, and for her teenage son John who has lost his only parent.
Remember thy servant, Janice, O Lord, according to the favor which thou bearest unto thy people; and grant that, increasing in knowledge and love of thee,she may go from strength to strength in the life of perfect service in thy heavenly kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Give courage and faith to John, that he may have strength to meet the days ahead in the comfort of a reasonable and holy hope, in the joyful expectation of eternal life with those he loves, especially his mother, Janice. Amen.
