Prayer Requests

Praying Hands with Beads
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. For my grandson Brian. He just turned 25 years old, and is involved in drugs. yes, he still lives with me. When we moved to Las Vegas, 10 months ago, I told him either you will become someone, or this town will eat you up. He choose the wrong path. Its not too late for him to make a u-turn on his life’s path. When my husband passed 2 1/2 years ago, I moved here to be close to my 3 adult children, and they have left, because they thought of the money, that my husband left me and I would give to them. That will work it self out. Brian, from an altar boy who so wanted to serve the Bishop at Mass, which he did, then quit. From that cute 8 year old boy on the day of his First Communion was so happy, because, his soul was happy. Prayers for Brian. Thank you all.

    1. I pray for all poor sinners like myself, that we would all be converted to God’s Love, and for those in the Laity and Clergy who are tepid, addicted to any vice, despairing, or waning in their faith and love for Jesus Christ. May our Lord Jesus, through His most Precious Blood and Water pour out His Divine Mercy on all these, Healing them all and restoring, and renewing them all to Himself. May Jesus always be your purpose. Many Blessings to all who read this humble prayer. Prayer for me and my family too. In all things may the Holy Trinity Be Praised, Blessed, Glorified. May our Most Holy and Immaculate Mother Mary always be Blessed, and Honored, and remembered in all we do. Amen

  3. Hello, please send fervent prayers our way. My 12 year old son has been having trouble at school, and has just developed motor and vocal tics (like Tourette syndrome) just over the last 5 days. I am feeling so overwhelmed as I deal with his sadness and anger, and also the needs of his older sisters (one with borderline personality disorder and the other with addiction/aspergers. God help us. I welcome all words of advice, consolation and hope. I feel like I am sinking into despair at times.

    1. Praying for your dear son, CDN. Praying for you, too, and your whole family. Praying, especially, that you have a good personal network of support where you are, CDN… people you can call or visit with face to face when the going gets tough. Praying a PMT and sending St. Dymphna to stay with you and each family member.

    2. CDN, asking the Holy Spirit to enlighten you on how to care for each and everyone; will be inc. you in my rosaries and chaplets. The 700 club,(Pat Robertson), has a toll free # to call and ask for prayer and a volunteer will pray with you over the phone and read applicable bible passages. Some deliverance warriors suggest sprinkling blessed salt/holy water around the house/rooms.

    3. CDN, I’m praying for you, your son, and family. My oldest son, who is in his late 30s was diagnosed with Tourette’s when he was around your son’s age. If you ever want to talk about it, please feel free to message the TNRS team for my email address. God bless you and give you strength and peace.

    2. Done. And please remember Bro. Gideon today on this last day of Mary’s month. He’s undergoing round two of major surgeries starting around 8:00am PT, about 11.5 hours worth. Also, please remember our Ma. She’s a faith-filled woman, but a mother too. Mom’s always seem to feel the brunt of it.

      I spoked with Bro. Gideon yesterday and he says he feels the love and joy from the prayers on his behalf. Thx.

  6. Ok, I am in need of prayers. I came down with a nasty bug that has completely wiped me out. It started with a little tickle in my throat and went straight to my lungs, deep, deep coughing fits. I missed the last three days of school. This morning I woke and now it includes my sinuses. I am down for the count.
    Boy, talk about pride. I didn’t think this was a big enough problem to bother this dear TNRS & ASOP family. (As I hack up half a lung to type this.)

    1. Praying for you, HTTP. If you haven’t kicked it by the 10th day, please consider seeking a script for an antibiotic. Last fall, I had what you describe and by the 16th day, I had my first ever doozie of a case of walking pneumonia. The ash from the Canadian fires is likely exacerbating your symptoms. Take care with plenty of rest and liquids. God bless.

  7. I have just reviewed and prayed for recent prayer intentions here as I yet again ask for prayers for my son-in-law Jerry. As I’ve said before, he has a rare cancer that has metastasized. Radiation and chemo have caused much damage. He continues to fight pneumonia and/or bronchitis. The relentless coughing has caused his lung to partially collapse. It’s been like that for months as they deem surgery too risky. Now a condition that my daughter lives with is causing her problems that can no longer be put on the back burner. They have two preschoolers who need them. Have mercy, Lord!

    1. My heart goes out to you and your dear ones, Kris. Holding you and your family in prayer. May you all be strengthened and given consolation. At times like you’re now living, I continue to go back to Chapter 4 in Fr. Spitzer’s book, The Light Shines on in the Darkness. It’s dedicated to spontaneous prayers which bring peace and strength amidst the suffering. The additional chapters are rich in remembrance of the heartening truth that we can recognize God’s Presence in suffering. Chapter 5 is dedicated to mitigating fear and choosing consolation as Fr. S offers strategies for guiding our thoughts. It has been such a very long slog for your precious family. If you have no access to the book, Fr. Spitzer has episodes of his EWTN program uploaded to You Tube. I just noticed his presentation on Chapter 4. If you wish to check it out, search with: Take This Cup Away From Me: Spontaneous Prayers In Times Of Suffering. +Remember O Most Gracious Virgin Mary

  8. Thank you Beckita, Mick, Jen, Joyfulhope and all in this ASOH/TNRS family. Truly, We are blessed to have Jerry still with us. They continue to try to just live life (as their new normal allows).
    We have much to be grateful for but we are wearing out. To end on a happy note, we have a new baby in the family and dear friends of ours became grandparents for the first time…on the same day.

  10. Please pray for my daughter Sarah, age 35, who is going through a divorce and is also deeply in debt and falls deeper every day because of credit card interest. Her husband, who has moved into another property they own, is playing hardball. He won’t let her refinance the house she is living in. He also won’t let her cash out her retirement fund. These steps would allow her to get out of debt and permit her to upgrade her home to make it marketable (they paid $336K for a fixer-upper and have sunk at least 37K into it; it needs another $80 – $100K to make it livable).

    I gave my daughter $5K in March to help with mortgage payments with the understanding she budgets her money. When she asked for more money this week, we learned that she had a sizeable credit card bill. We asked for her statements and saw that she is $20K in debt with a high-interest rate. Moreover, we saw that she was engaged in wanton spending, racking up huge beauty salon bills. We gave her another $3K (my wife and I are both retired) and read her the riot act. I told her that she has no sense of reality and that she needs to see things as they really are. I told her that she has to give her life over to Jesus Christ and I’m going to continue boldly proclaiming that she needs HIm as her Lord & Savior. Otherwise, she going to fall deeper into sin and misery.

    So, please pray for that my daughter’s divorce is resolved soon and that she turns her life over to Jesus. Her financial and marital woes are a symptom of her rejection of God and of her refusal to take advice from those her care for her.

    Thank you.

    1. Joining in to pray for your daughter as well as you and your wife, Frank. My heart goes out to you all. Emotion packed are these kinds of scenarios. Speaking from experience, no mess is too big for the Lord. He has been answering our prayers concerning the details of my own daughter’s marital and familial challenges… and answering in ways which never crossed my mind. Is everything ALL smoothed out for her? No. But there is a trend of growing, healing, and recovering in ways that have me equally on my knees in gratitude as surely as I have been asking for help.

      While a relationship with the Lord is key to unlocking blessings, I have noticed that He often works through the prayers of believers in tending to another person’s temporal needs even though that dear one is not yet walking fully with Him. The decision to seek Him, then, springs from the blessings He gave through the intercessor.

      Another dimension of challenge when walking alongside our adult children to assist in times of trials for them is getting clear in our own heads the boundaries concerning what is mine to tend to as the parent and what belongs, by right and responsibility, to the child as an adult to tend to. Here’s a gem of a read, if you’d care to check it out, about maintaining healthy boundaries. God bless you and your family.

      2. Thank you for your prayers, Beckita. I have given my daughter a wide berth for a long time never criticizing her and never proselytizing. But now I have crossed some boundaries — no money until she removes a drawing hanging in her bathroom of a hermaphrodite with exposed genitals and devil horns and destroys it. (My wife recently pointed this out to me.) I have a four-year-old granddaughter who is exposed to this every day. Thanks also for the tip on the book — I’ll order a copy from the library. But to be honest, I have seven books on the chair next to my bed that I’m working on.

        I deeply appreciate the great gift of the ASOH intercessory community. God bless you on this great feast day of Pentecost!

  12. Hey Mick,

    Margarite and I have been in touch and we were both wondering who in the group has the group pic??? We both thought we had it but do not.

    I wish Sue would write more on here. She has so much wisdom and heartening capabilities. I would like to read her inspirations more.

    Also, Charlie sort of cool…. I went to Mass this am before cleaning my next door neighbor’s house where Kreg the drug addict lives. Unfortunately, he od’d last week died for a time and police thankfully revived him with like 30 grams of narcan where normally only 4 will revive. We had a nice long talk. I asked him if he saw Jesus and he said no nothing but had been gone for many minuets. they kept him breathing artificially for a time.

    I said, Kreg…please please stop doing that!!! He said he’s just in so much pain all the time and is trying to get relief. Also, he can’t sleep.

    But anyhow… I told him about you and about all of us here praying for him that he can beat this and then told him that in particular, you Charlie are invoking St. Barnabas.

    When I got to Mass this am…I found out TODAY is the feast of ST Barnabas. I told Kreg and we both got goosies!!!

    Anyhow, Kreg too now is invoking ST. Barnabas. Let us all continue to pray for Kreg. He seemed hopeful this morning. ohhhhhh big sigh…. Thank you everyone! love you all soooo much! TNRS ASOH xoxoxoxo

      Regarding the group picture, Mary has it. She sent it to me, but I don’t know how to send it to you. With your permission, I could sent her your e-mail address and ask her to send it to you.

      Like you, I miss the days when Sue used to comment often. She really does say a lot of wise and profound things. It’s cool getting to have lunch with her every month. 🙂

  17. Please pray for me today, I have a very important meeting with my boss. It’s one of those meetings where I am going to be the scapegoat for the whole department because she is an incredibly arrogant individual who has walked over a lot of people. It has finally reached a critical point and even though this is supposed to be a conversation it will more likely be a session where she comes up with unsubstantiated things to attribute to me. This is not unique to me and is what has been going on with multiple individuals in my department. I unfortunately felt it was time to at least bring it to the attention of the people above her. This is why I don’t feel it will go very well. Please pray that God’s will be done for both me and her.

    1. Hi, Jacque,
      We are in the exact same boat you are. Ours went on the market last fall, not even a nibble.
      Sometimes I am at peace about the whole thing-if it is God’s will it will happen, and other times-WHEN is it going to happen. It is difficult to to turn it over to the Lord and leave it there. As if my taking it back and chewing on it will help any-ha! I am one year out from retiring and just want everything done so we can move on….I guess God has other plans for now…me working on patience(as always) and letting God handle this. Like Charlie has stated so many time…God knows where we are at, don’t worry. St. Theresa help me.

      In one of Fr. Chezik’s book, He Leadeth Me, he wrote how he came to accept God’s will in everything, then it took four or five more years in solitary confinement to practice it.(I read the book 40 years ago so might not have all the specifics exact.) I hope it doesn’t take 5 years for both of us to get our properties sold. ;-0

      1. Yep. You nailed it. It is the waiting..I read the Proverbs verse regularly. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding”. (3:5-6)

        Part of the decision making process is whether the Lord wants us to stay right where we are. We are in our early 70’s and all this upset is really difficult. We are living in our RV so keeping the house clean with 2 dogs is not so difficult. But living in a camper full time is not easy all the time, either. That you for your encouragement and prayers.

        Jesus, I surrender myself to you, Take care of everything. (Fr. Dolindo)
