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.

  2. Please pray for my daughter, Rachel, who is expecting a child in August and my daughter-in-law, Ceci, who is expecting in September. Pray that both mothers and their babies will be safe during this pandemic. Rachel works in a hospital and Ceci lives in Brooklyn so they are both in higher-risk situations. Thank you.

      1. I’m sorry, Patrick; I didn’t get comments cleared in time for your original prayer request to go out. Praying for the repose of Kay’s soul, and for her family.

  4. Hello,

    Please pray that the sale of our house will be successful. We sold 4 weeks ago before the crisis hit and our closing date is May 29th. We stand to lose our $20k deposit on our new home if the sale of our present home falls through. I pray for God’s will in the matter, but my heart is hoping that we can move out of the city to a larger rural home that will be a better fit our family of 9.

    Also, please pray for my health. I have been struggling with my blood pressure. It has been a challenge to get my meds just right. I can’t figure out why my blood pressure is a problem because I have been eating low carb since September last year, my diabetes is in remission, and I have lost 35lbs. Maybe I am stressed? I have been doing night duty with my granddaughter since she was born last November. She has feeding issues so I have to be up every 2-3hrs to feed her. Maybe you could throw in a prayer for her feeding to improve. 😀 thank you!

    1. Our dear csw, I have offered a prayer for your intentions. Prescription and even over-the-counter medications can wreak havoc on your blood pressure. I am not sure if you are taking meds, if you are, it is worth looking into. Well done on your weight loss and remission. Keep up the good work in your self-care and the love and care of your blessed family! ❤

  5. Please pray for the staff & residents of the small care home for the handicapped where I work, we’ve had 2 staff leave, and another giving off hints she might join them. Please pray we find good staff & soon, the shortage is burning out the staff we do have! Say a prayer that I can hang in there, my back & spine issues have been causing me all sorts of problems, and it’s hard trying to fall asleep, not sure how long I will last working myself. Also, our folks don’t really understand what’s going on, and with Easter coming they just don’t get why friends & family can not visit, nor can they go out, pray for them!

    1. Oh yes. Prayers rising for you, Go’Shenite, and your situation and for everyone who’s affected like this. Taking you all to Mass today where Fr. Wang is ever ready to cover needs like this in Jesus’ Precious Blood. God bless you and your co-workers.

    2. Go’Shenite, I am truly praying. Burnout in the medical field is happening throughout the lands. Praise be to God for all medical personnel at this time. Lord protect their generous hearts, minds, bodies, and spirits, I pray! ❤

  6. I’d like to request prayer for my 81 year-old father-in-law, who was recently diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer. He will begin radiation treatments tomorrow. This presents a special challenge during the Stay at Home orders/risk of infection from Covid-19, as he lives a 25 hour drive from us.
    Thank you so much!

  7. Please let us pray for all who do not enjoy robust mental health and are prone to horrific mental deterioration in these trying times. Let’s pray for their consolation and permanent healing.

    The suicide demon is real. It efficiently devours hopes and dreams into countless future generations. Soul shattering sterility and death are it’s fruits as well as many levels of unimaginable pain.

    Let us pray and beg God for our brothers and sisters in so much need.

  9. Couple prayers friends.

    1. Prayers of thanksgiving. I had been lamenting that my husband lost his career job some time ago. He got a job delivering with Amazon and now he is working OT. We are very grateful. If he had been in his career job he’d be on unemployment again and not having any income.

    2. Prayer for the soul of my Aunt Leilia who died April 13th with COVID19 and pneumonia. And for her remaining 9 children and their families. 3 children died before her.

    She was so blessed to die during the Easter season, during the divine Mercy Novena. It was sad to only get to see her funeral mass on Facebook. But grateful she had a mass and proper burial!!

    Praise God!!!

      1. Hi Mick, yes, you have a very good memory, I am in Australia. Along with you and the rest of the world, we are also in lockdown though today the restrictions were lifted a little: we can visit relatives etc and bring the kids. This is wonderful for grandparents who have been in isolation. The worst thing about the restrictions is the closure of the churches. Our parish staff are working very hard to keep us connected etc etc but not being able to visit or attend Mass in person is soooo sad. We are very fortunate in that the number of fatalities in this country is under 100, no doubt due to the lockdown. Prayers for all Steppers.

  11. I just got a call from my son, Frankie. Globetrotting Tommy gave me heads up awhile back but it looks like my son Frankie and his wife Julie are getting divorced. I think partly because they couldn’t have children and many other things. I tried my hardest to steer both my kids into priesthood for I too had a horrible first marriage. He says he’s ok and by Virginia law still gets half of the business (they worked together…she an eye dr.. Frankie ran the business) but I am still asking for prayers for him for no matter what…divorce just stinks and it’s very hard on everyone. Julie already has a boyfriend so that’s gotta hurt real bad. He said he has contributed to the breakdown too and that it always takes two in a failed marriage! God bless and help them both!!! My heart is just so full of sadness…please pray for me too and all of us! Thank you!!!😭😭😭

    1. Forgive me, Linda, but I edited out a few lines that seemed to be airing out some dirty laundry that is best kept private. I know we are family here, but this is a public site, so I thought you would probably want to keep discrete family business discrete.

        1. Aw, Linda, this is hard stuff. So sorry. Prayers aplenty for each of you as you process everything. I’ve watched my daughter and her husband struggle in marriage and while it breaks our hearts as mothers, God is with us and He gives us companions who are really God with skin on. A PMT for you, Linda. Sending Blessed Mother to strengthen and comfort you.

          1. Thanks so much, Beckita! I am just inconsolable today!!! Gotta take pics down from the wall etc…etc..etc..I know it will be ok it was just really a shock…sort of…Thank you for your prayer and one back atcha for your intentions! I thank God I have you guys to help me in this time of worry and distress for my sweet Frankie. I can’t imagine what Our beautiful Mother, Mary must have gone through and still does for each of us today. I have much to offer to her today and I know God will somehow draw good out of this mess I’m sure. God bless you, Beckita and thank you again!!!

            1. Oh, I’ll bet you’re so sad, Linda. I sense our Sorrowful Mother carried all our sadness to Calvary as she accompanied her Son Who took on all our pain and hurts as He made His way on the Via Dolorosa. I pray you can take comfort in knowing that Frankie, Liz, you and all concerned are in the Hands of God. He always gets us through and He draws such good from the toughest of the tough stuff when we cast our cares on Him. Be gentle with yourself in these days, Dear Linda. Big emotions zap energy.

  12. Hello everyone,
    My husband and I would like to request prayer for our daughter who is in a serious relationship with an older man we believe is toxic, manipulative, and intent on isolating her from her family. Please pray that she is delivered from her blindness, and that we will have the Lord’s wisdom in talking with her. Thank you so much!

  13. Please keep my estranged brother John and his wife Debby in prayer. They were in a severe auto accident and had their car totaled last Sunday on their way to the cemetery to pay respects to our mother. He was seen in ER and sent home that day and is now hospitalized as of Tuesday for unrelated yet serious symptoms he has kept close to the vest since January of this year. This includes broken ribs from a previous fall, organs shutting down, autonomic nervous system and memory issues. My older sister, an R.N., by the grace of God is working with his medical team. There are only the three of us siblings, and he is the baby. It has been a grace to speak at length with his wife, Debby, who was like a second mother to my children and their guardian when I worked in their early childhood. I pray for his health, conversion and for our reconciling and reunification.

    Thank you all. ❤

  14. So many needs of prayer for those here, elsewhere spoken and unspoken. +Jesus, Virgin Most Powerful, Mercy+

    Stupid shutterfly sends me “remember this 13 years ago?” It was a sweet, sweet picture of my baby who died by suicide at 18—on his First Holy Communion, toothless, and holding his infant sister in her baptismal gown who was also baptized on that same Mother’s Day. My heart is broken all over again.
    I wanted badly to share that beautiful picture, but I don’t have an anonymous web space to share with. I would make it my profile pic but I don’t have a wp acct, and apparently the name I use is taken :0

  16. I have three prayer requests; thanks in advance:

    (1) Please pray for my great-aunt, Marguerite, who is being placed in hospice today. She is three weeks shy of her 100th birthday.

    (2) Please pray for the repose of the soul of my brother-in-law’s aunt Thomasina, who passed away yesterday.

    (3) Please pray for the repose of the soul of my Uncle Nelson, who passed away on Sunday. After 60 years away from the Sacraments, he died in a Brown Scapular put on him by the hospital’s chaplain three days before his passing. The chaplain also anointed him and gave him the Apostolic Pardon, which is so awesome! (God bless the chaplain, Fr. Buckles; please say a prayer for him, too, please.)

  21. Within a three hour period of time this afternoon, I was informed that my sister and my sister-in-law are both near death. My sister-in-law Janet had a brain bleed and was life flighted to a hospital for surgery and is in Neuro-ICU. Her husband is my brother Pete. My sister Mary Margaret is in the hospital after complications from a fall that had sudden onset of altered mental status. Her husband is John. I am praying for them and my whole family, most of them away from the Church/God.
    Please pray for them with me. I am begging for God’s Mercy on them and their families.

      1. Appreciate your prayers, Beckita, Mick, Jen, and other silent ones, like myself, who sometimes don’t always reply but still pray for posted intentions. As in so many things, we fared worse than others, and not as bad off as others, so we pick up and no crying over spilled milk.
