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. Requesting prayer for healing of a multitude of health problems so I can attend my daughter’s wedding in a couple of months. Thank you so very much.
    (Beckita, I would be interested in the CC zoom class if I can just do audio and not video as I have to be horizontal at odd times if knees/back acting up, but if he prefers to see everybody, I’ll pass, no problem)

      1. Thanks Beckita n Jen for your prayers;
        She was getting worried but Catholic match came through.πŸ₯°

        And Jen a while back you posted a picture of some men kneeling and saying the rosary in the UK or Canada I forget, anyway I thought it was an awesome image and shared it with others. Twitter is getting so restrictive with people who don’t have account themselves it’s getting harder to peruse, used to be so easy to scan without a blurb coming up saying get your own Twitter account to see more. Arrgghh

          Yesterday, I was a little achy and slept in late which is unusual for me. My body temperature runs low too – 97.4 for me. I was running a low grade fever and shook it off with lying low for the day! Fortunately I have not had the need to be tested. ❀

  6. Hi Beckita and all here. Can we ask for prayers here still? Not sure if there is a new way.

    I am asking for prayers for PTSD that keeps coming up strong for me in the spring. I’m praying for healing of memories or whatever that keeps it coming back. I do have a counselor. Thank you so much for all you do here. You are in my daily prayers. God bless you.

    1. Surely praying for you, Cheri. As you can see, prayer requests continue to come through, even if not as frequently. I highly recommend Sonja Corbit’s series: “Freedom from Anxiety”. Jesus can and does heal us interiorly… when we engage with Him in a fruitful process. Sonja’s current content eventually goes into the archives. Then, for whatever monthly contribution one can make, you can become a “Friend of the Show,” and have access to ALL of her series. If you’d only wish to engage with the Freedom series, you could accomplish that and then remove yourself as a contributor. It’s so worth it because inner healing takes time and support.

      Also, if you haven't already seen it, Direction for Our Times has a "Heaven Speaks" (compilation book) that continues to help me, when I get crushed yet again.

      fwiw, my husband and I have tried this (links below) and it seemed to help, but I think Aurum worked better. We did not take them longer than a couple of weeks. In any event, these can be gotten off of Amazon and will not interfere with any other prescriptions.

      Also, Anne Haiek has a series on depression/stress homeopathy (excellent listen, she discusses remedies) and Bach flower remedies on Corac.co under health and wellness. I did get some of the flower rememdies and figure it can't hurt.

          There was a part, I’m happy to report, brief, that could have been paralyzed by grief/shame/regret because I did not have this tool/information decades ago—and it is a game-changer. Especially the mind remedies.

          But how I see it, especially since we were seeking His will (TYG) as a mindful objective from the start, (TYG), God do what God do, allowed what He allowed—-all of it, every iota, for His greater glory. The good, bad and especially the ugly. When we all get to see the finished weaving, it is gonna be outta this world! This gives me so much peace. Blessed be The Lord!

Just recently his blood marker for inflammation became very elevated and his newest symptoms (generalized fatigue, muscle and joint pain, fever) led to a diagnosis of polymyalgia rheumatica and treatment with high doses of steroids that could continue for a long period of time.. I feel sure that this developed as a vaccine reaction. His lot # was one of the Pfizer dangerous ones. Please pray for his recovery!

  16. Dear Fellow Squirrels, I have found this song I grew up with (Barry Manilow, Weekend in New England, Haha, eye roll), a source of healing/hope.

    The comments (below the video) and my experience indicate peeps processing deep grief and hearing the lyrics as expressing agape love.

    We know through our beautiful faith, love is the only thing we get to take with us, and as such The Lord preserves this for us. No matter what evil besets us, The Lord can turn it to a great good and His Glory if we let Him. Our stories will be completed, beyond our wildest hopes in Heaven. What a wonderful reality!

    It is particularly relevant to me as we were blessed to be able to take all our kids, for 3 consecutive years, on camping trips to ME/Acadia, iconic for long rocky beaches and bays and lighthouses (symbol of Christ, our Savior). Funny here, the last time we went, were driving a one ton Chevy van on a cracked frame and had no.idea.frame.was.cracked. The trip was 8 hours up to Down East and 8.5 back . Plus hours of driving each day. Talk about God giving miracle and blessing to carry us through the sorrow ahead. TYG

    God bless us, everyone. Keep on keepin on!

    2. Cheri, in my personal experience with severe depression in the late 1970s and recently in my reading, I have found that most cases of depression may actually stem from or at least be significantly aggravated by body-wide severe inflammation. You can focus on removing items from your diet that you are either allergic to (blood tests to identify) or that are inherently inflammatory (like seed oils such as sunflower, canola, etc., as well as sugar, high carbs, dairy and grains) on the one hand and on taking anti-inflammatories on the other (astaxanthin, Boswellia, bromelain, Vitamin D3, Vitamin C and N-acetyl-cysteine, and so on). Of course, I encourage you to take homeopathy remedies and do any other healing technique you are drawn to, but you don’t want other things you are doing (or not doing) to fight those remedies. Depression usually means a person needs to clean up their diet and environment and take some anti-inflammatories while doing remedies and other healthcare actions. Also get out in the sun and walk slowly in nature every day, go swimming in the sun, anything to get a little movement during the day.

      My experience with depression showed me that it is a really insidious disease in that it saps your will directly. That means it can be very difficult even to get started on a healing path. Although I’m sure it is difficult for you to feel like getting up and doing something, it is really imperative that you simply get started. The options outlined by various folks here are all good. Choose the one that draws you the most, so that you can get over the de-motivation that the depression will be hitting you with. Then as you feel better, try the others. Every day, choose to do at least one thing that you feel to be constructive and that gives you some optimism. Be experimental. Explore new paths. Over time the depression will fade, and it will get easier to keep at your program.

        1. Happy to help, Cheri. Keep in mind that a tendency to isolate is a symptom, not a cause. Forcing yourself to go out without *starting* to fix the underlying causes isn’t a great idea, as it will probably cause you to get very stressed. That’s why I’m saying to focus on doing something constructive every day to move yourself toward healing. As you address and fix the cause(s) of your depression, going out will get easier, and when you sense that it is getting easier, then at that point you should begin stretching yourself to get out and see people. A focus on constructive healing comes first, then the social isolation will pretty much fix itself with a little stretching on your part. You’ll just find yourself wanting to go out.

  20. Hi folks.

    Please pray for my best friend, Pam Ekberg. She worked very hard to help arrange the Faith, Family, and Freedom conference in Rapid City in 2021. At age 73, she has suffered from multiple sclerosis since 1969, almost unheard of that someone with this chronic disease should survive so long. She admitted herself to the hospital Wednesday after becoming acutely fatigued and weak after Mass on Tuesday.

    She summoned me to her hospital room today and immediately said, with tears in her eyes, “I’m done fighting. I don’t want to do this anymore. I just want to fall asleep.”

    This amazing lady has served Our Lord her whole life. She led a Divine Mercy Cenacle for decades (up to this day) including an annual novena for Divine Mercy Sunday. She would also pray the Rosary with others before an abortion clinic in Rapid. All clinics in this state are closed down today.

    She has received the Anointing.

    She is not actively dying, but has deteriorated so abruptly that she may not have much time left on earth. We discussed options such as hospice. We laughed and cried, and even picked out some nice hymns for her funeral.

    I am grateful for your prayers for her, her only son Eric, and her family.

    You are all in my prayers. God bless you all.

    1. Maggie, someone once told me to drink several ounces of apple juice daily. It will soften the stone into goo which will comfortably pass when ready. Worked for me and tastes great, too. Organic apple juice, please. Best at first might be 3-4 ounces twice a day, then when it passes, go to 4 ounces once a day until you’re sure any other stones have also softened and passed. My first use took 2-3 months to clear everything, almost without any discomfort. Once you’re sure all is clear, you can stop.

      Or you can try Chanca Piedra, which is an herb known to break stones.

      And pray, too. That’s always good. πŸ™‚

        1. on the off chance that you will get this late addition on this issue, Maggie, I have recently heard the following to help calcium oxalate stones. These don’t replace the apple juice idea or Chanca Piedra but instead are available as options.

          Increase Vitamin B6 intake and add magnesium. This will prevent (some) calcium oxalate stones from forming in the first place. This is the foundation for the below ideas.

          Use one or more of three herbs: Nigella Sativa (Black Seed Oil – around 400 mg per day // Tribulus Terrestris (which will actually repair kidney damage caused by stones and other insults – 650 mg a day) // and an herbal formula called Cystone, which has 9 herbs in it and that has been proven to be effective. Of course, none of these are perfect, but try one. If it works, keep at it. If not, try the next one. Or take all of them at the same time, see if you are benefitting, and then see which one(s) you can drop without affecting your progress.

          If none work, then perhaps you are not dealing with calcium oxalate stones after all.

      Please consider Alliance of Hope for help in real-time for those who may need this support. AOH is doing good work , lighting real lights, in the darkness of this terrible scourge.

      I really hate this brain/thought utter madness that drives people, against every inborn survival instinct, every learned adaptive behavior, every rational thought, to this. I’m so tired of the cruelty and insanity and diabolical nature of it. It’s exhausting. The insanity of it is exhausting. The pain is exhausting. All of it is exhausting. Our Lord knows. He is with us. And I believe He keeps His promises and will make all things new again.

      Heaven and Our Lord have great compassion and mercy, and we are never to doubt this. The greater the need, the more the right to His Mercy, for those who love Him.

      Our Lord knows, better than we understand. He is love and mercy itself. Woe to those who lead any to this kind of an end.

        1. Thank you for sharing, Audiemarie. The sheer desperation is such a driving force, Audie and LL. Every time I was with Maria Esperanza, there was someone grieving at the loss of one who had taken his/her life and Maria assured that person that God, who intimately knows us, understands completely the struggle. Recently, we had a priest friend visiting who had discussed with his fellow exorcists something that was written (can’t remember if an article or in a book). The writer had interviewed everyone who had taken an intended suicidal jump from a certain bridge, yet survived. To a person, about halfway down, s/he regretted the choice. Thanking the Lord for His tender mercy on us and on the whole world.

          1. I treasure the story you shared with me about Maria Esperanza, more than you know! God bless you for sharing it.

            Michael Voris, who I hugely respect, has teamed up with I can’t remember who, and launched a mental health series. I listened to about 30 mins of the very first one, and had to stop. I had to pull away, it was so bad.

            Iirc, and haven’t gotten it wrong (it’s possible I got this wrong, hopefully if my understanding is incorrect someone will correct me)—- the premise was mental illness is 100% a spiritual issue, with no pathophysiological or genetic component. That is why pharmaceuticals “don’t work,” b/c there is no medicine except the sacraments for mental health :-O :-O :-O

            Honestly, this hypothesis terrifies me, and feels like a throw-back to the salem witch trials, the inquisition. It is truly bad form, and embarrasment and worse, deadly dangerous.

            If my conclusion is correct about this premise, I begged God to help them stop speaking about something they woefully don’t understand b/c many will be injured. I wondered why the person preposing such a crazy hypothesis wouldn’t spend a lot of time at Alliance of Hope.org, speaking with those people, reading the blogs, doing this thing called research, ugh.

            Anyways, I personally, can’t take this on. But dearly hope The Lord will.

            Finally, here is a blog post from AOH that truly frames the issue correctly. I dearly wish all could read this. All need to. God bless us, everyone!

            1. I think that beginning to understand mental health must be looked at via the interplay of genetics, physiology (consider the newest understandings on neuroplasticity as well as the profound connection between the gut and the brain), our belief systems which can drive our thinking, the management of emotions, the impact of big wounds in our lives and, of course, the many dimensions of our spiritual health or illness. We all make mistakes and with what you are describing in the new series that was disturbing, it was a good move to pull away, LL.

                It is a extremely complex issue that demands a multifauceted approach. So poorly understood, even among the best and brightest of us. There will never be one easy, one-size-fits-all, answer.
