Last week I was sent the following email:
I'm e-mailing you now because I just learned of a little boy named Dexten Peck, 14 months old, who had an accident in bed over the weekend - he slipped in-between the mattress and bed rails and suffocated. His father found him, but he had been without oxygen for a long time. He is in the hospital and they aren't sure if he is going to make it, but the doctors are already talking about possible severe brain damage. Because of James, I have encouraged people to pray to Fulton Sheen on Dexten's behalf. If Archbishop Sheen could intercede and heal James, I am confident that, if it is God's will, the great Archbishop can also heal Dexten. I was hoping you could possibly remember this baby boy in your prayers to Fulton Sheen as well. I know you know exactly what this family is going through.
It is terrifying to be where the Pecks are but it is an awesome feeling to know that you are being lifted up in prayer by hundreds of people. Please take a moment and pray for Dexten now and please continue to pray for him throughout the Lenten and Easter seasons.
Eternal Father, You alone grant us every blessing in Heaven and on earth, through the redemptive mission of Your Divine Son, Jesus Christ, and by the working of the Holy Spirit. If it be according to Your Will, glorify Your servant, Fulton Sheen, by granting the favor I now request through his prayerful intercession that Dexten's organs heal and function normally and that he is spared any brain damage. I make this prayer confidently through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Thank you for your prayers!
