    Shoulder wound of Jesus . . . Oh loving Jesus, meek Lamb of God, I, a miserable sinner, salute and worship the most sacred wound of Thy shoulder, on which Thou did bear Thy heavy cross, which tore Thy flesh and lay Thy bones as to inflict an anguish greater than any other wound of Thy most blessed body. I adore Thee, oh Jesus most sorrowful. I praise and glorify Thee, and give thanks fully to Thee for the most holy and sacred and painful wound. Beseeching Thee by that exceeding pain, and by the crushing burden of Thy heavy cross to be merciful to me on towards heaven along the way of Thy cross. In Jesus\' name (Say Request) Amen to all. **This powerful prayer must be said for requests and most urgent help. After you have said it, ask for requests, then you must publish it right away

  7. Dear Lord, I have been praying this for almost a month and I will continue to pray it. I pray for a second chance with my ex, the man who was about to propose to me. I know we both made mistakes and pushed each other away, but our love was true and unlike any other. I pray that we can have a chance to really do things right. A chance to truly know, love,and respect one another and not rush our relationship. I beg of You to hear my prayer. I see second chances happening all around me every day. I know all things are possible through You. I know that through this break-up he has said and done hurtful things and I have learned things I wish I never would have occurred and I know I should have put more effort into showing him how much I truly love and want to spend the rest of my life with him. I should have shown him the wife that I would have been to him instead of taking moments for granted and being lazy in the relationship. But through it all I believe everyone deserves a second chance. Through it all I still love him and feel a horrible loneliness and pain without him. Dear God, please let him hear, see, and feel what is in my heart. Help him to know that it is real and that I have a love for him unlike no other. Help him to know that I truly plan to make a change in my actions and that I have no intentions of repeating past mistakes. Please Dear Lord give us a chance to reach the true potential we had with each other and to be able to see what we could be with true love and respect for another, and what our relationship could be with You truly as #1 in our relationship. Please provide us with a completely clean slate to build from. Please God hear me and answer my prayer. Please let him answer my prayer and reach out to me. Amen.

Please force your will upon me and force me on the path you have chosen for me. Help me decipher your will, grant me wisdom to know what you want out of me, help me to understand the path you have chosen and grant me courage to walk that path, without any ill-feelings, pain or anguish, without hurting anyone by justifying talks or statements. I know not, the other side of the story. You, alone, Abba are all knowing and you alone, knows the true situation and I ask you to guide me in every relationship at work with my team-mates, in my family within my loved ones, with friends so that I harbor no negativity and yet I am protected from being hurt. Abba, I seek protection from all evil, deception, treachery, emotional abuse or misuse. Be with me, every breath I take, guide every decision I make, and let no thought, word or deed be outside your plans and will for me. Help me be your child, the way you want me to be, an asset to my clients and employers, a blessing to those around me at work, within family and with friends.
