Praying Hands with Rosary Beads and Dove

On this page, readers are invited to send in their prayer requests. I will leave requests up for nine days. All readers are invited to pray for those who ask for it and any who want to offer a word of comfort are invited to do so, as well. May we work together to mutually build each other up and support each other in times of trial.

  1. Prayers needed for my granddaughter who is now living with me. I believe she is about to make a decision that is not a good one. Please pray that the Holy Spirit guide her to the right path for her life. Also that she continue to get new clients for her new counseling business. She is a sweet and wonderful woman and I believe will do well, just needs some prayers right now. Thank you so much. Your prayers mean so much to me. I had asked for prayers earlier this year for my health. I found a new Dr. and he found the problem immediately and I am now doing great. Thank you all so much.

    1. Praying for your good health, for guidance and abundant business blessings for your granddaughter, and all your intentions Clemgal,

      Hail Mary,
      Full of Grace,
      The Lord is with thee.
      Blessed art thou among women,
      and blessed is the fruit
      of thy womb, Jesus.
      Holy Mary,
      Mother of God,
      pray for us sinners now,
      and at the hour of our death.

  2. A college friend of ours just called us today to say hello, catch up and ask us for prayers for himself. He is a person who’d give you the shirt off his back, a super hard worker, a loyal friend. There are many very complicated and depressing personal situations he is dealing with. Please, can you all pray for Gerry. Thank you, very much.

      1. TY so much. Another mutual childhood friend of mine (and Gerry’s) just lost her little brother a couple of weeks ago. She had her Mom and brother. Their Dad, a Korean War vet., died when the kids were wee toddlers, so her Mom was a single Mom (Korean) and sent them to a private Catholic school, raised them herself. It wasn’t an easy life.

        Anyways, my friend devotedly cared for her Mom who passed away a few years ago. Her brother struggled with significant mental health issues and also heart disease, a life of much tragedy and pain. +May perpetual light shine upon Mark, and may he and all the souls of all the faithful departed, rest in peace.+

        Gerry called us to let us know about his death. Gerry is a huge extrovert. It would not surprise me if he knows someone you know, LOL. He is super upbeat, positive, can-do personality, hugely talented with all things construction, real estate, sales, etc. He asked for prayers because his family disowned him and he is clinically depressed–getting help.

        I don’t know how to adequately pray for him, it is overwhelming, but I know God knows and I am certain God will here our prayers and prevail here.

        1. Joining you in prayer, Littlelight,

          For your good friend Gerry and all his intentions and for your other mutual friend and all her intentions, and for the repose of the soul of Mark.

          One way you can pray, Littlelight, is when you go to Mass (or watch Mass online), you can invite the guardian angels of everyone involved to attend that Mass so that all the guardian angels together there can pray for the peace, healing, forgiveness, strength, consolation, conversion and salvation of everyone involved, in accordance with God’s Holy Will. This prayer can help repair families … it may take years and you may see baby steps of improvement, but it can indeed help.

            1. Thank you, Littlelight! Loren is doing great. He has been able to return to work, and he and his family are thanking God for his new lease on life. Also, his relative who donate the kidney is doing well, from what I’ve heard. Thanks for your prayers for them. 🙂

      1. Noreen,

        So sorry to hear about these issues so close to home especially during this time of seasonal joy. about Our Lord being born. You and your family will be in our family’s’ daily rosary.


    1. Dear Noreen,

      Joining you in prayer for the good health and healing of your granddaughter Angela from diabetes and Celiac disease. May God bless her, you, and all your family, especially during this upcoming Christmas Season.


    2. Dear Noreen, I am so sorry to read this because I am a mother of a JD. My son was diagnosed at 12, he’s 35 now. But there is hope. The JD community has worked very hard on devices that are miracles. My son started with needles for years and 2 insulins – one long acting and one short acting and 5 AM lows. The new devices have change everything. Three, four and five needles a day have been replaced by pumps or pods and one needle prick every 3 or 4th day. And blood sugar pricks 3 to 4 times a day have been replaced with Continuous Glucose Monitors and one prick every @10 to 12 days. No more mental calculations of carbs as CGM’s do most of the work so much more even blood sugars happen.

  3. My heart is really hurting as I ask you to pray for my hubby, D. He needs an MRI to follow up on scary news from a blood test. It’s so hard to wait for everything which takes so long – getting appointments, then find out results, etc, etc. It will take much grace from God. He has been the love of my life for 55+ yrs. of marriage. I know the Lord has a plan, it just hurts a lot right now. We always know one of us will go first, but when it’s a possibility to lose him, it’s scary. I knew I could come share with you all.

    1. Annie W. We’ve been married 51+ years and have had the same conversations about who might go first. I have prayed for you both. It’s just that 51 years seems to have gone in a blink of an eye even as I remember all the in between.

  4. Two Requests for all good Prayer Warriors here:

    1) For a friend who will be undergoing surgery on Wednesday, December 16th for breast cancer, for a successful surgery, for her complete and speedy healing and restoration to good health, in accordance with God’s Holy Will.

    2) For a friend who has been in a nursing home for a year or so who has come down with the China virus, for his good health and healing, and so that people (in particular from a certain Star Trek club where we were both active members) will brighten up his Christmas with cards and phone calls, in accordance with God’s Holy Will.

    Thank you very much for any prayers!

Today they had to put down one of their dogs. TY all. I pray they feel God’s presence and can find hope, comfort in this time of grief/loss.

  6. Please pray for Finn Francis and Riley Richard who are both almost 4. Finn fell off a jungle jim and broke his arm above and below his elbow only to catch Covid somewhere between Emergency, ambulance and surgery at the local children’s hospital. Now Riley is sick and we think that he now has Covid. I know that children are less susceptible to the scourges of Covid but as their grandmother, I am worried for them. Thank you to the community here for requesting their recovery as I am now.

  8. Please pray for a young teen in my neighborhood.

    Poor boy is new to the area and COVID lock down so he has few friends and is cyber schooled.

    Today he threatened self harm under the influence. The police just caught him. It is 25 degrees here so he might not have lasted the night outdoors.

    Please pray for him and his family.

    Thank you!

    1. Joining you in prayer, LittleOneinPA,

      … for the young teenage boy going through a rough time due to being cooped up and away from people, and praying for his family as well.


  9. Please pray for the repose of the soul of a dear woman, Denise, who I just learned died yesterday, perhaps just a week before her husband, Field, may be released from captivity as a political prisoner, here in the U.S. since November of 2019. It is really a crush to my heart, because they are/were good, loving and God-fearing people that were literally giving all they had to serve God! I am tearful as I type this. Before his false arrest, I was on poised to work with/for them at a Texas holistic healing ranch and provide care for veterans and victims of human trafficking. God’s ways are not our ways. He has other and better plans! May we just have the grace to endure what comes our way, always.

    Please also pray that on January 6th, 2021, that her husband’s case is dismissed in court. Thank you in advance. ❤


    1. Prayers being offered for the repose of Denise’s soul and that her husband’s case is dismissed in court. Also, prayers for you, Jen, for comfort and peace. This is so sad. God bless you. xo

  10. Asking for prayers for my family…my husband Bob and I have been caring for our granddaughter Melody for 8 days to keep her away from our daughter Christa`a boyfriend who was very sick. He tested positive for COVID on Saturday and our daughter is also very sick. Now Melody is showing mild cold symptoms. Bob and I are 72, 73 and have underlying respiratory issues. We are concerned, of course, about our health and our daughter and boyfriend are at risk because of addictions and unhealthy lifestyles.

    Melody lost her dad 5 years ago at age 2 due to drug overdose. We have continued during this time
    to care for Melody because we are the main stability in her life and of course, she is such a gift in our life. Please pray for healing and protection for all from this virus and for Christa and Nathan to saved from their addictions. God bless all of you!

    1. I have said PMT and asked St. Joseph, Terror of Demons and Savior of Our Savior, to intercede for all your intentions.


    2. Starlette, you and your family are in my prayers. Children rarely pass the Covid virus to others, particularly if they have only a mild case. Let’s hope that is true here.

      1. Thanks for praying! We’ve been using a great deal of your guidance for strengthening the immune system. For once my husband is not resisting taking all the supplements. Melody did test positive and is back home with mom. We are on day3 of quarantine from exposure to Melody. Feel like I’m fighting something but so far haven’t succumbed. Thank you again for prayer and all that wonderful advice you shared with all of us. God bless!

    1. Patrick, I understand your heart being filled with joy. Have been thinking more lately how this is not our true home, thank God. Prayers for you and all who love Honey here and prayers for her dear soul.


  14. Asking for prayers for myself and protection for my husband Bob. We were exposed while watching our granddaughter Melody for 12 days. She tested positive for COVID last Thursday and I tested positive yesterday and am feeling pretty bad. Thanks everyone for your prayers.


    1. Starlette, I will also continue to pray for your family. If you have not already done so, you can take up to 100,000 IUs of Vitamin D3 a day until you start feeling better (there is no risk of overdose if you taper off as you feel better). C, quercetin, zinc up to 150 mg a day.

      The key isn’t to avoid getting ill. The key is to avoid going into Phase 2 where the viral population is minimal but inflammation starts rising higher and higher. Vitamin D3 will help stabilize your immune system so it does not go into Phase 2. Phase 1 is like a bad flu but then you get better and are fine, with little damage, if any. It isn’t something in itself to be worried about. So take the D3 and other stuff now, and if you start going into Phase 2 with lung issues, take lots of anti-inflammatories.

      If you start having breathing issues, you will need to go to a hospital, so call around now and ask each local hospital how they treat Covid patients in Phase 2. If they say that they treat them aggressively with steroids, Vitamin C, D3, etc., go to that hospital if you need it. If they say they follow the Front Line Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance protocol developed by Dr Paul Marik’s group, choose them.

      Avoid a hospital that says they don’t do anything but palliative care or send you home with Tylenol. Phase 2 is an emergency no different from a heart attack or stroke or severe illness and must be treated aggressively. So figure out your hospital choice now while you can, just in case.

      Meanwhile, take the D3, don’t take Tylenol or aspirin unless your fever goes over 103 (fever at this stage is good). Gargle with hot salt water, or drink hot tea, or nebulize 0.5% H2O2 if you have the supplies for that, to rapidly reduce the virus population in your throat and if possible your sinuses. And rest. As long as you are in Phase 1, you have little to worry about.
