Urgent Prayer Request For My Good Friend Wanda

Wanda had been having severe headaches, and medications like Tylenol, etc., were not helping. She had a knot on the back of her head, and her doctor says it appeared to be a tumor on the outside of her skull, and that pressure from it was causing the headaches. She went to a neurosurgeon, and he ordered a biopsy on the knot. The results of the biopsy were not good. Wanda's doctor's say that she has Stage 4 cancer.

The doctor's feel that there is cancer somewhere else in her body for it to have metastasized to her skull. They will be doing a scan (not sure if MRI or CAT scan) to attempt to find where the cancer is, and determine what treatment options are available to them.

Please keep Wanda and her family in your prayers.

Thank you, and God bless you all!

Your brother in Christ,


Prayer to Saint Peregrine Laziosi

Oh great Saint Peregrine, you who have been called "The Mighty" and "The Wonder-Worker" because of the numerous miracles which you have obtained from God for those who have had recourse to you. For so many years you bore in your own flesh this cancerous disease that destroys the very fiber of our being, and who had recourse to the source of all grace when the power of man could do no more. You were favored with the vision of Jesus coming down from His Cross to heal your affliction. Ask of God and Our Lady, the cure of Wanda whom we entrust to you.

Aided in this way by your powerful intercession, we shall sing to God, now and for all eternity, a song of gratitude for His great goodness and mercy. Amen.

Prayer to Saint Jude the Apostle

Dear Apostle and Martyr for Christ, you left us an Epistle in the New Testament. With good reason many invoke you when illness is at a desperate stage. We now recommend to your kindness Wanda, who is in a critical condition. May the cure of this patient increase her faith and love for the Lord of Life, and for the glory of our merciful God. Amen.

Urgent Prayer Request For An Addicted Daughter

I don't even know what to say, my girls are everything to me, they always have been. My 22 year old daughter Ashley is a master manipulator. She says what you need to hear to let her do what she wants...and right now what she wants is to stick a needle in her arm. I got a call not long ago that she weighs 84 lbs. I'm so scared. I stopped talking to her on the phone because it hurts when she lies and I know it. Just this weekend I got four texts and messages that she was calling everybody begging for pain pills. I don't know what else to do. I don't want to bury my baby!!

Prayer to Saint Maximilian Kolbe (Patron Saint Against Drug Addiction)

God of mercy, we bless You in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, who ministered to all who come to Him. Give Your strength to Ashley, Your servant, bound by the chains of addiction. Enfold her in Your love and restore her to the freedom of God's children. Lord, look with compassion on all those who have lost their health and freedom. Restore to them the assurance of Your unfailing mercy, and strengthen them in the work of recovery. To those who care for them, grant patient understanding and a love that perseveres. We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Saint Maximilian Maria Kolbe, your life of love and labor for souls was sacrificed amid the horrors of a concentration camp and hastened to its end by an injection of a deadly drug.

Look with compassion upon Ashley who is now entrapped in addiction to drugs and whom we now recommend to your powerful intercession.

Having offered your own life to preserve that of a family man, we turn to you with trust, confident that you will understand and help.

Obtain for us the grace never to withhold our love and understanding, nor to fail in persevering prayer that the enslaving bonds of addiction may be broken and that full health and freedom may be restored to her whom we love.

We will never cease to be grateful to God who has helped us and heard your prayer for us. Amen.

Prayer to Saint John of the Cross

Saint John of the Cross, in the darkness of your worst moments, when you were alone and persecuted, you found God. Help us to have faith that God is there especially in the times when God seems absent and far away. Amen

O God, Who didst endow holy John,
Thy confessor and doctor,
with a wonderful love of self-denial
and a surpassing love of the cross;
grant that by following ever in his footsteps,
we may obtain everlasting glory.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son,
Who liveth and reigneth with Thee
in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God,
world without end.

Prayer to Saint Monica

Exemplary Mother of the great Augustine, you perseveringly pursued your wayward son not with wild threats but with prayerful cries to heaven. Intercede for all mothers in our day so that they may learn to draw their children to God. Teach them how to remain close to their children, even the prodigal sons and daughters who have sadly gone astray. Amen.

Prayer Request For My Eyes

I am in need of your prayers, please. My eyes seem to be getting worse, at least it's more noticeable to me, especially at night. Hopefully, I can get them checked in the next few months, and find out what I can do to be able to afford to have the cataracts removed. Thanks, and God bless you.

Prayer Request For A Deceased Mother

I would like to have support for the following prayer

Mom (Henriette Billard) who was 97 had to be hospitalized for distort food roads. A pneumonia of inhalation was discovered.

Failing to treat it or to feed mom by oral route, the hospital where she was decided not to nourish her by any means and refuse to let her back home until it was sure she would die. She was then authorized to come back home within a hospital at home. She died 3 days later.

Considering that every person has the right to live whatever their age, there has been an injustice of which mom was the victim and it should be repaired( Luke 18), I ask God in the name of Jesus Christ to raise up my mother from the deads

Many thanks for those who accept to pray for this topic. May God bless them.

O God, who hast commanded us to honor our father and our mother; in Thy mercy have pity on the soul of my mother, and forgive her her trespasses; and make me to see her again in the joy of everlasting brightness. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

*       *       *       *       *       *       *

Dear Lord, relying on your promises to us, I turn to you in trust that my mother is with you and that she is enjoying your loving embrace. You alone know how she loved the best she could and how she faithfully endured the struggles that she faced. You know the graces you gave her and you know the grace she was for me and for so many. For all the ways she truly loved the way you loved her, please reward her, Lord. 

May she enjoy the communion of all her family and friends who are with you.

Lord, I know my mother still loves us who are still here on earth. I ask you that you might listen to her fervent prayers for us. Help me to grow into a new and deeper relationship with my mother now, as I long for the day when we will both meet in your embrace - freed from all that might have hindered our relationship on earth, knowing and understanding everything we did not know or understand on this earth. Amen.
