Prayer Requests

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. Dear all, know that I’ve been silently praying for all intentions here. I’d like to request prayers for an old friend of ours. He has an aggressive cancer. He is a former Catholic who is hostile to the Faith, actually an agnostic if not atheist. Please pray for him and his conversion. Thank you. xo


  2. HI Beckita, Charlie, Mick, Jlynnbyrd, kristenkreh, audramarie2014, stevebc…and all who pray here so loyally…I call ya’ll the “Big guns🙇🙏”… anyhow..globe trotting Tommy & Liz are off again to Iceland, tomorrow Aug 12th for 3 weeks in between nursing assignments..I guess they rented an suv and their tent will be up on the suvs…Charlie, you would like to travel like that I bet…hahaha…but the last trip I didn’t ask for prayers and a boulder hit their truck in alberta, Canada and they got stranded with wild game all around them..yikes..this nice couple took them to a gas station way far away and even waited for them until they were up and running again.

  3. I want to thank everyone for praying for Joe and Julie. They have reconciled. Their baby is due within the week, so I am happy for them and the little one.

  4. Once again, I’d like to thank everyone here for your prayers to help me finish school. I officially receive a Master of Science in Advanced Practice Nursing on Aug23. All praise to God! I can now sit for the board exam.

    I’d like to request continued prayers from my friends here. For the next 2 months, I will prepare for the certification exam which requires covering a lot of material. I need help staying focused, motivated, and efficient with my time in order to be successful. (A failure means waiting 6 months to retake the test — not an option). Thank you!

    I will also be visiting my grandmother, Honey, at the end of the month. Her name is Josephine and she turns 100 today! My aunt is flying me out to WNY because I was worried my truck wouldn’t make the trip. Haven’t been to Buffalo in 10 years, so it will be nice to see family and my ol’ stopping grounds. I also plan to visit my father’s gravesite in Eden, NY. I wasn’t present for the burial.

    Say, any squirrels in the WNY area that want to meet for lunch, let me know.


    Ave Maria, Stella Maris!

    1. Patrick, I am so happy for you! Thank you for sharing your good news and updates. Continued prayers for you and your loved ones. Enjoy your adventures in Buffalo, my dear fathers birthplace. 100 years old! That is a impressive milestone. Please give Honey a birthday hug from me. ❤

  5. I’m asking for prayers for my grandson who just turned five. He is a very personable little guy who is super polite, hold doors for everybody, prays heartwarming prayers and is wise beyond his years. He also is very impulsive. He will purposely run into people, knock over toys and hit. This behavior is worsening as his daddy’s cancer progresses. Daddy and son are inseparable. Today he got kicked out of preschool for hitting a teacher. He said he is angry because no one will play with him. No one will play with him, because of his behavior. This little guy has quite the spiritual side to him. He would see angels when he was real little. Now he complains of what he calls orbs
    ( where did he get word?!) in his bedroom at night. I gave him some Holy Water to use when he sees this and there is a rosary and scapular tied to his bed. My daughter is exhausted trying to deal with all this plus a two year old, full time work and her own chronic health problems.
    Yes, our grandson is in therapy and swimming to try to direct some of this energy. Something has to change and soon! Thanks to all for your help.

    1. And just that quickly, we have an answer. My daughter figured out that the accelerated negative behavior can be traced back to when our grandson was started on an allergy medication. Side effects include depression, aggression, nightmares and headaches.
      God is good! Beckita, you can delete my entire prayer request if you want as I feel it has already been answered. Thanks.

      1. Kris, I went ahead and cleared both of your comments; it’s encouraging to all of us to see your prayer for your dear grandson answered, and it’s a reminder to continue praying for your son-in-law (Jerry, is it?) and his/your family.

  6. I always feel a bit sheepish about such personal prayer requests but I did surrender it to the Lord’s Will. We’ve had quite a grueling day but I feel Our Dear Lord taught us a lot today. Once again His faithfulness is proven. What seemed insurmountable is now a mere hiccup. Thank you all for sharing this journey with me. This is quite the Community! God Bless all here!

  7. Up from the ashes … ta saye “hello” and ask for prayer.

    This week, I’ll be flying across the country for a job interview. The company has already prepaid my flight and hotel, and it looks like a wonderful opportunity. Am hoping for prayers for safe travel there and back again.
