St. Raphael Comments

St. Raphael is one of seven Archangels who stand before the throne of the Lord. He was sent by God to help Tobit, Tobiah and Sarah. At the time, Tobit was blind and Tobiah's betrothed, Sarah, had had seven bridegrooms perish on the night of their weddings. Raphael accompanied Tobiah into Media disguised as a man named Azariah.

    Dear St Raphael, I pray that you continue to protect those around me, my family and friends. I pray that you will continue to pray for me to the Lord God. I ask if you would please St Raphael, to give me hope and trust in God that my intention is on the process but will take some patients. Please I pray St Rapahel to rid my mind of all these bad thoughts and negativity that causes me to be down and have doubt in God. Please continue to pray for me and guide him back into my life and help him become a better person. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    Saint Raphael,

    I beg for your divine intervention in 2 matters in particular. I am a nurse & have interviewed with a hospital recently that would be perfect for me. I am running out of financial options (I've drained my retirement) and it is essential that I get this job. I have no family or friends that can offer real financial assistance so, this is it. (I always helped them-before)
    Also, I ask if it isn't too much, that you please help me be reunited with my ex.so we can be granted a second chance. My heart has been broken and I yearn to have him back in my life again. I'd never met anyone like him before. Anything you could do to help would be greatly appreciated and I will always make your name known to others. Thank-you for your help.

I feel one of the blessed one that the angels are with me and showing the love of God. Always show your blessings and security to me and my family like this as we are facing many problems and we don't have anybody to share with except God who knows everything. Thanking once again for selecting me for your blessing me.

    Dear Archangel Raphael, I testify from my life's personal experiences to your powerful intercession and how you never fail to help me whenever I turn to you. I understand that you have an archangelic passion to save souls, particularly those souls who are lost and helpless, scarred and suicidal, without any meaning or purpose in life. There is such a soul in my life desperate for your archangelic intercession, and his name is Timmy. Timmy was born to a strugglig Finnish family on Sunday, 4 April 1976 in the working class suburb of Sydney (Ryde). Timmy is the 4th child out five and 3rd son to a hopelessly alcohilic and a helpless mother struggling to feed them.

    Timmy was influenced to smoke heroin at age 16 by his heroin addicted brother and before too long Timmy was using $400 worth of heroin every day. Timmy's life of hell, heroin hell was terribly ugly and utterly vile. However, by grace of God he was admitted into rehab and cured from heroin. He had a good job, loved sport, nice home and life was fabulous until 12 months ago when he met and fell madly in love with a spunky young woman on heroin. Now he is sleeping on park benches of Sydney's public parks and living worst than an animal. Timmy lost everything worth living for and Timmy's life is worhless and vile. Where there is life there is hope so we turn to you for your archangelic intercession to save Timy's life of hell and restore him back to us, his loving and heart-broken family. AMEN

    I was raised in the Catholic Church & I had a few questions that I can't find answers to:

    From my Catechism, I was taught that St. Michael, St. Gabriel, & St. Raphael are all archangels. I was reading my Bible, & I see that St. Michael is mentioned as an archangel in the Epistle of St. Jude. However, I noticed in the Gospel According to St. Luke that St. Gabriel is mentioned as an angel, & in Tobit that St. Raphael is also mentioned as an angel, but they are not labeled as 'archangels.' Is there some verse is the Bible that I may have missed that specifically mentions them as archangels, rather than just angels, or is it tradition that they are?

    Also, I was taught that there are a total of seven archangels. I can't seem to find in the Bible where seven archangels are named or mentioned in general.

    Lastly, I was reading the book of Isaiah & it mentioned Lucifer. From my understanding, Lucifer was previously Satan when he was a 'good' angel, before he fell from grace. Does the Bible say that Lucifer was an archangel, or does the Catholic Church teach that he once was one before the fall? I would very much appreciate anyone's input. :)

    Thanks in advance!

    God bless!
    Jim.

    My dearest St. Raphael, as I read the other comments and prayer requests, my heart goes out to all of them. St Raphael, I ask you to help guide my daughter back to Christ and away from the atheism that has taken control of her. And please help and guide us on the trip we are about to take. I love you, and how you lead us closer to God our Father. Amen
