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. Thank you for all your prayers.

    I have an in-person interview at a nursing home in Wyoming next week!!!!! 150 residents with rehabilitation and a
    Dementia unit and a nearby
    6-bed hospice.

    This work is my dream job!
    I’ve got butterflies in my stomach I can barely contain myself. Ugg. 😣

    Please pray that,
    if it’s God’s will and a good fit, that I get the job!

    I so much want the reassurance of having employment lined up and to be at a place and with people I love to work!

    St Joseph,
    Patron of those who labor,
    pray for us!

  2. You all may remember that some weeks ago, I request prayers for my buddy Loren, who had a transplant surgery cancelled as being “nonessential” during lockdown. Well, he’s having his surgery tomorrow. Please keep him in your prayers; and please also pray for the organ donor, whoever he/she may be.

  3. I hate to ask again but I’m having such a hard time with depression. Could you please pray for healing for me? Thank you. I keep you all in my daily rosary. God bless.

    1. I have been inundated these last few weeks with calls and emails from people telling me how depressed or frightened they are. I understand. I get that way sometimes myself – but the way for me is twofold: when I am weary, I rest for a time. If you have a sprained ankle, you get off of it for a while that it may heal and not get worse. I think the same approach works best for a sprained spirit. Then when I feel strong enough, I get up and walk – and that drives depression and fear awway.

      1. Thank you. Am trying to reach out and get out now to keep going. One day at a time. Will take that break. It is good advice. Thank you. Thanks Beckita and Hand to the plow.

        God bless you all.

      2. Thanks Charlie for the insight. I wish there was a magical way but there isn’t. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other. Blessings to you and all those that are a part of this. Somehow your prayers and insight help to reassure me. Praying for strength and wisdom. Our Blessed Mother guide us we pray. Amen
        🙏🙏❤

    2. Hi Cheri-I can add a bit more now. I go up and down especially when I was younger with hormones. One thing that really helps me is to turn up Christian music and sing wholeheartedly, giving thanks and praise to God. For me it stopped the negative stinking thinking and singing released endorphins. Here is just one of the songs from MercyMe with lyrics. https://youtu.be/B6fA35Ved-Y

      1. One of the most important and hardest lessons for me is that it is ok to reach out and ask for support and love. We probably all have a little of that fear (of reaching out). We maybe expect others to have an answer and just their presence is the answer. So thank you for responding. God is right there in the midst…. (I also reached out to relatives and acquaintances) and the Blessings are coming. Amen. I see the blessing that I am also…

  4. Thank you to all who prayed for my brother Martin. He is doing better and finally the visiting restrictions were eased today so that his wife could sit with him. Still a ways to go and has to have all 4 chest drain tubes removed before able to go home. There was a small hole somewhere in his throat leaking which caused a whole slew of problems. Thank God for CT’s and all other inventions.

  5. Please pray for my daughter who left today (7-5-2020) to go to Mexico for a very risky medical procedure that she hopes can cure her lupus. Due to Covid 19, nobody could travel with her to this hospital. Please pray that she stays safe and that she comes back to us in August 2020. And that God will spare her life, and if it his will, that she be cured. Please pray also for the conversion of her heart while she is down there. She needs to come back to her Catholic faith. Thank you so much for your prayers.

  6. Everyone, please pray for Marion and Leah and their family. They are neighbors of mine. This morning, their 4-year-old son, Jared, passed away from brain cancer; and an hour later, Marion’s grandfather passed away from an illness. Marion and Leah have six other children.

      1. Thank you, Jen. They are an Amish family; they are people of deep faith, and both the Amish community and the “English” community have rallied around them. But oh, how heavy their hearts must be.
