Praying Hands

Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God.

Philippians 4:6

Let Us Pray

Together, let us pray for the needs of our brothers and sisters.
Please remember these intentions in your daily prayers.

  1. Our father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen!!!

    Mary, 4/19/2014
  2. For the past 8 years I prayed thousands of faith fiilled prayers in Jesus name. Thus far none of those prayers have been answered. The King James Bible says ask anything in Jesus name and it will be given. Well apparently that\'s not true. Because I have asked for healing, deliverance (mostly) restoration, a new job, protection, my family and I to be rejoined, a home of my own since satan stole my home a wife since God watched satan walk my wife down the aisle to be wed with another man, my 401k stole, 50k stole and golly nothing fixed. So I figure its time for a change because the way I have been praying hasn\'t fixed ONE SINGLE THING. Would you please pray for me...I would appreciate it...

    Steven, 4/19/2014
  3. Our family is still mourning the death of my wife and the Mother of our three boys, when we find out that the oldest son has been diagnosed with the same cancer that killed my wife.... Dear God, please help my oldest son in his battle with this horror and hold him and his family gently in Your Arms....

    Bernard, 4/19/2014
  4. I ask for prayers & call on Our Mother of Perpetual Help, to pray for my little boy & I. Tonight, he will receive three Sacraments. At eight, he made a commitment to join the church & am so proud of him. His behavior seems to be improving and know prayers are working. The Lord has touched his heart and just ask that He heal his mind/body/spirit & that he is always protected from evil. He chose St. Michael as his saint and know this will help carry him through life. Am in need of a more reliable car but as a single mother on a limited budget, not sure how this will work out, but I believe the Father will open a door where it seems almost impossible now. I also have connected with J and just ask I always seek God\'s will not mine. I ask the Lord protect me from any evil and if this isn\'t meant to be, that He take these feelings away. I do want to find a good man and will never settle just because I don\'t want to be alone. I would rather be alone than treated poorly because I know I will always have Jesus & am prepared to spend my life this way if it be God\'s will. I do want a partner & someone I can grow old with but again won\'t settle for someone who isn\'t decent, honest, genuine, and God loving. I open my heart to God\'s abundance today & everyday, and won\'t focus on the things I don\'t have but rather, the things I do. I am grateful! Thank You, Jesus!

It\'s as though she is in a deep hole and each time she tries to climb out; a giant boulder weighs her back down. for YEARS now bad things keep happening to her and everything she tries to make it better actually makes it worse.
