Prayer Request for My Landlady



Mildred Banks is my 85 year old landlady and good friend. Mildred had started having health problems about a year ago, mostly related to slight anemia and a copper deficiency.

Mildred was in the hospital a couple of weeks ago, and is now back home. During the hospital stay it was determined that she has severe congestive heart failure, and she is now being seen at home by hospice.

Please keep Mildred in your prayers, and also her family as well.

God Bless you, and thank you,

Steve Smith


Prayer to Saint John of God, Patron of Heart Patients

Saint John of God - PD-1923


Dear Convert, after a sinful life, through the power of God's holy Word you learned to love your fellow human beings. Self-sacrificing, you founded the Society of Hospital Brothers. No wonder the Church made you the patron of patients, nurses, and Heart patients. That is why we confidently have recourse to you.
Please give assistance to Mildred Banks and teach us to be kind like you.

God, You filled St. John with the spirit of compassion. Grant that by practicing works of charity we may deserve to be numbered among the elect in Your Kingdom.

Amen.

Urgent Prayers for Robin



I ask for your prayers for my friend Robin Langford, who is severely ill and will soon be in the presence of Our Lord.

Please pray for the repose of her soul, and for the Peace of Christ for her family and friends.


Almighty and merciful God, who hast bestowed upon mankind saving remedies and the gift of everlasting life, look graciously upon us Thy servants and comfort the souls which Thou hast made, that, in the hour of their passing, cleansed from all stain of sin, they may deserve to be presented to Thee, their Creator, by the hands of the holy angels. Through Christ our Lord. 


Amen.

Prayer Request For A Lady With Troubles




I am 62 and live paycheck to paycheck. My car broke down and I was fired because I could not get to work. My car that I had in 1999, finally gave out. I bought another car with all of my savings. That car overheated and I brought it to a repair shop and they ruined the engine. I do not have any more money to buy a third car. My son is trying to fix the car for me. But has not been able to find out what is wrong. I now have no income coming in and my rent will be due in a few weeks. Please pray that we can find a way to fix my car, so I can find another job. I know this sounds mundane but I am 62 and am close to being homeless. Thank you for your prayers.

Regards,
Karen

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,

Steve


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.

Amen.

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.

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.

Please pray for Julie and the health of her baby



This morning, Julie's water broke at almost 19 weeks. There is not a lot of amniotic fluid left. Julie is home for the week on bedrest.

Julie lost her first child due to miscarriage. Julie and Chris, her husband were indeed in need of healing given this loss. They were overjoyed when they were blessed again with their second child who's life is in danger now.

Please pray for this child's survival. Many doctor's are giving them their "options"... Chris and Julie wish to trust in God that whatever He wills for this child will bring greater glory to Him.

Please join them in praying that, if it be God's perfect will and His mercy, that He would allow the amniotic fluid to be restored and that their baby would be saved and in good health. 

Please, I ask you to pray for this child and for Julie. Thank you so much, 
Thank you and may God Bless you,

Andrew

Instead let her remain ever conscious that she is privileged to be the instrument through whom God brings another life into the world. Encourage her for the good of her child and the glory of the Lord of life. Amen.

Prayer Request For Straying Children



In April 2010, I sent an email asking for prayers that all my children who have fallen-away from the Catholic Church would return.  I am still praying and asking for prayers.  Will you please continue to pray that they come back to the Holy Catholic Church and teach the faith to their children?
Thank you for continuing to pray for my family to return to the Catholic Church.

Peace,
D.

Prayers For Fallen Away Catholics



O Almighty Father, who desirest not the death of the sinner, but rather that he be converted and live, pour out upon us thy mercy and hear the prayers of thy servants. Soften the hearts of thy children who have strayed from the true paths, which thou didst establish for their salvation. They are now forgetful of their duties as Catholics, and pursue only the transitory pleasures of the world. Grant that they may speedily return to the practice of every Christian virtue, so that their lives may shine with the integrity of faith, the fervour of piety and the ardour of charity. Restore all of them to thy sacraments and to the life of thy grace, through the merits of the Most Precious Blood of thy Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ.

Amen.

*       *       *       *       *       *       *

O Lord Jesus Christ, most gracious Saviour of the world, we humbly beg of thee by thy most Sacred Heart, that all the sheep now wandering astray may be converted unto thee, the Shepherd and Bishop of their souls. Who livest and reignest from this time forth for evermore.

Amen.

Prayer Request For Young Man With Cancer




Please pray for a young man, Trevor Ruck, who is in a cancer hospital in Texas, dying of cancer. He is asking for prayers. Trevor has suffered and fought hard. The doctors told him they have done what they thought would help/heal him and don’t know what to do.  He may have only weeks to live. If God wills a healing for Trevor, we humbly ask for that Divine gift.

Thank you so very much for your precious prayers.

Good Saint Anthony, in God's providence you have secured for His people many marvelous favors. You have been especially celebrated, good Saint Anthony, for your goodness to the poor and the hungry, for finding employment for those seeking it, for your special care of those who travel, and for keeping safe from harm all who must be away from home.

Prayer For Intercession of Saint Gianna Beretta Molla

God our Father we praise You and we bless you because in Saint Gianna Beretta Molla you have given us one who witnessed to the Gospel as a young women, as a wife, as a mother, and as a doctor. We thank you because through the gift of her life we can learn to welcome and honor every human person.

You, Lord Jesus, were for Gianna a splendid example.
She learned to recognize you in the beauty of nature.
As she was questioning her choice of vocation she went
in search of you and the best way to serve you.
Through her married love she became a sign of
your love for the Church and for humanity.
Like you, the Good Samaritan, she cared for everyone
who was sick, small or weak. Following your example,
out of love she gave herself entirely,
generating new life.

Holy Spirit, Source of every perfection, give us wisdom, intelligence, and courage so that, following the example of Saint Gianna and through her intercession, we may know how to place ourselves at the service of each person we meet in our personal, family and professional lives, and thus grow in love and holiness.

Amen.
