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. Please Pray that Tiana\'s ear pain, discomfort, ringing is healed and she\'s able to hear with ease again.

    Tiana, 8/22/2014
  2. Please help me, C, Lord and angels here and above. I want to shine my light in the world, but first you must help me find it. I have been contemplating suicide lately. Please help me find strength and energy and love and light and hope so I can be of value to this world. I need prayer for physical, emotional, mental, spiritual strength and wellness and a way to be of use to the world. I lost my only conceived child after I had tried a lifetime. never recovered. Too old now to ever try again. And so hurt the man, P, went off with another instead of treating me right. May he be enlightened and return and make amends for having abandoned the right path and helped me through it and try again? Don\'t I belong with him if he was the 1 to bring the child I want? Please Pray for me so I can be a light in the world and be useful and energized and helpful and good and valued.... Then I can help others if you help me, God. Why is he so disrespectful? Help me to be only love and light in the world and therefore find happiness: true and unconditional love for self and for the perfect partner I await. Amen

    Rael, 8/22/2014
  9. Have survived Two years of someone placing evil spells and hexed upon me and family. Attempts to have their evil ways to demolish my life, I\'ve persevered through different obstacles, even with night tremors and awakening with bruises upon my flesh for no known injury, through grace of my God not to open an evil book to have black ways end this , I\'ve tolerated as much as can bear. With a recent miscarriage in which this evil haunting has heckled, I have once again been blessed with another special child in my womb. These past several years have ached my heart, tormented my mind, and more. Following my priest\'s guidance, I keep faith at mind, but through fatigue of pregnancy and constant pain that occurs when thus evil escalates I fear another loss from the stress. The past few weeks have been pleasant as the volume has decreased, and so I please ask for an accumulation of mass prayers to please assist in the remainder of ridding of this evil. I also have a 19 yr old daughter Elysha with special needs who lives with me and has experienced all these stressors. Please keep us in mind and assist in the great way to alleviate us from such madness that has exhausted us and has attempted to draw us away from God. Thank you so very much, With an open heart ,asking for fellow assistance. ELISABETH

  21. To Catholic Prayer Group: My husband is about to loose both of his jobs. At the first job he did not disclose the fact that he had a 2nd full-time job, (which is against the 1st jobs policies). Regarding his second employer; He hasn\'t been able to talk with them yet, but I suspect they may terminate him because about a month ago he hurt himself on the job, took time off & was paid workman\'s comp. But he still worked at his 1st job, (on desk duty only). He won\'t know about the second job until tomorrow when he\'s able to speak with them. I\'m sorry to be so extensive in my description but I felt I needed to be detailed about the circumstances. We desperately need him to have both jobs due to my expensive prescriptions and several other sizable obligations.

    Please pray very hard, along with me and my family, for my husband to retain both of his full-time jobs. He\'ll know his employers decisions by tomorrow, August 22nd, 2014.
    Thank you all for your support,
    Jan & Rufus Rodriquez
