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. Please pray for my son, Chris, who is drinking himself to death. He lives in another state and his girlfriend has kept me informed. He is not doing well at all.

    1. Audie,

      I will be keeping your son in my prayers. I can feel for your pain and anguish regarding your son’s destructive behavior. I had a son started to drink in drinking in grade school and was alcoholic for more than 23 years. By the grace of God, he has overcome this disease and has been trying to start a new life.

      Keep praying and do not give up hope. All here and more are praying for your son and of course for you as well.

  2. Dear Family of Prayer,
    Please pray this week for the move my husband and I are undertaking. Please pray for good weather, good roads, safe travels and for the protection of us as we carry boxes, etc. We have to go over two mountain passes and the forecast says we might have some snow. The traveling day is this coming Saturday the 27th.
    I haven’t had much time to sit down and read the blog but pray for everyone here daily.
    Much love.

    1. Carmel, thank you for your prayers. There is much comfort during trials in knowing others are praying with and for us. At times, it seems I can feel the effects of intercessory prayer. God bless you and all who take the time to pray for others.

  4. Audie,
    Praying for you, your son and anyone else in your family that is affected. Alcoholism is not an disease that only affects an individual, but all those that love him. Chris, being your son I am sure makes it especially hard..

    God bless and May our Mother Mary intercede for your son’s recovery.

  5. To the Prayer Warriors:
    I am asking for your spiritual support and prayers for 3 family members. One for a joyful recovery and two with possible terminal outcomes.
    The first extended family member that was diagnosed with terminal cancer was my sister’s daughter-in-law. She had many malignant tumors in her uterus. Within one year of heavy treatment, she is now cancer free. She will have to continue to take a newly developed drug for three to five years called LYNPARZA. It cost $7,000 per month. Thanks be to God she was accepted by someone, or a program, that would pick up the tab of a 5 year expense of around $420,000. So far 75% of women that have taken this drug have gone 3 years cancer free. Of the 25% that took other post cancer treatments, all participants had their cancer has return within 14 months.
    A side note: The extended ONeill family has had many miracles happen to us or our kids, grandkids and great-grandkids that we know were saved, cured, spiritually or physically through the mercy and love of Our Blessed Mother. We have no reason to not chalk up another wonderful example of the power of prayer. Having the CORAC team as part of the large family, I am convinced helped in many ways. Furthermore, as proof that our Mother Mary was involved, my sister’s name is Mary and Mary is also the name of her daughter-in-law. For people of faith, we need no proof. It is so great to have JOYFUL news while we have been living in the middle of evil and hate coming from every corner.
    However, on the in-need prayers side of life, my 21-year-old step-granddaughter, who had gone through breast cancer two years prior, and pronounced cancer free, has now been found to have terminal cancer which has spread to 6 different areas of her body, including her bones and lymph nodes. She is still going through chemo and other treatments. So far, there is no spread, but there is no reduction in the areas of cancer or the size of the tumors. Please add her and her and families to your prayers.
    Finally, my older brother by two years has had extensive heart problems as recognized by his 4 heart attacks over the last decade. While having a pacemaker and heart defibrillator imbedded in his chest, the doctor still told him that the next heart attack would be fatal. He went into the ER two days ago and doctors are trying to find out the cause. Your prayers for his recovery, regardless of the cause, are again greatly appreciated.
    I also want to say that while I may not personally respond to most of the extensive number of people in need as of prayer, I pray with my family for all CORAC people in need as well as our cause every day during our family rosary. I do not think any of us have many crosses and burdens to bear. Having CORAC and the prayer warriors especially, is a great gift for individuals reaching out to God for help and comfort.
    Thank you so much from my self and extended families request for your prayers and thoughts.
    John

  6. please pray for good outcome for friend who has no family, I basically am it. She went to emergency Monday and will probably need long term rehab and is thought she will not be coming home. She has no insurance at this point and hospital is trying to work something out. She wants to come home to her cats and is not very cooperative and willing to let God be in charge. She prays constantly and always says her memorare is her go to and Mary is always there and always answers her prayers but can’t seem to accept things as they come and gets extremely upset if things don’t go the way she wants them to. Please pray for her and me and all those trying to help,

  7. My twin’s husband of 40 years passed away peacefully and naturally last week, with my twin beside him. She had willingly been his 24/7 caregiver for two years; finally, his systems simply started shutting down, even with excellent care by hospital staff. My twin has noticed and is grateful for the many ways that God provided comfort, direction, and little miracles of grace.

    I’m grateful to have been with her all the time since his passing. ❤

    Anyway, now is the time to adjust to new ways of life. My twin is very open to God's leading. He knows her needs. She prays for direction and discernment.

    Many thanks for your prayers, friends ~

  9. I write to ask for prayers for Fr. Mathias Thelen of Encounter Ministries, who as a newly ordained priest was the associate pastor of our parish. Our diocese sent out an appeal for prayer today because he is suffering from serious complications from a routine surgery. He has been in the hospital for 10 days and is bleeding internally, and the doctors can’t figure out what’s causing the bleeding. He is in great pain. Please pray for his quick healing, for a relief from the pain, and for wisdom for his doctors. Thank you.

  10. Would you all please say a prayer for one of my brothers? He had a bicycle accident on Easter Sunday that will require surgery and then fell and broke four ribs on his birthday three days later. He also had the shot the week before. Not going well for him right now, as he is also going through a divorce. Thank you!

          1. Thank you, Beckita. They as a neighboring island country and we as a fallen world need prayer. Lord, I pray that people of good will are coming to the aid of the abandoned/needy. Sadly, this is being reported today and is a clear sign of the times.

  11. Thank you all for your prayers offered for my son and now my brother. I forgot the most important request! Please pray for their conversions. I do that every day and then forgot to include it in the previous requests. For crying out loud…
