UPDATE 4 March:
May I ask you all to redouble your prayers? K is still in hospital now. They are trying to get the spinal fluid to stop leaking. This is becoming pesky.

Will the readership please say a prayer for a friend – K – to St. Gemma Galgani? Please ask her intercession – right now – to heal his spinal cord, still leaking spinal fluid – after surgery a while back.
Here is a common prayer, asking for St. Gemma’s intercession, which I have slightly modified. Please take a moment – stop – and pray this now?
Oh St. Gemma, how compassionate was your love for those in distress, and how great your desire to help them. Help, also in his present necessity and obtain for K the favor I humbly implore, if it be profitable for his soul. The numerous miracles and the wonderful favors attributed to your intercession instill in me the confidence that you can help him. Pray to Jesus, your Spouse, for K. Show Him the stigmata which His love has given you. Remind Him of the blood which flowed from these same wounds, the excruciating pain which you have suffered and the tears which you have shed for the salvation of souls. Place all this as your precious treasure in a chalice of love and Jesus will hear you. Amen.
There is a Novena to St. Gemma for back pain. HERE
