Registered or not, will you in your charity please take a moment look at the requests and to pray for the people about whom you read?

Continued from THESE.

I get many requests by email asking for prayers. Many requests are heart-achingly grave and urgent.

As long as my blog reaches so many readers in so many places, let’s give each other a hand.  We should support each other in works of mercy.

If you have some prayer requests, feel free to post them below. You have to be registered here to be able to post.

Finally, I have a serious personal petition.

    Please pray for my 87 year old father whose cancer has metastasized and is back in the hospital today. He grew up in poverty in the hills of another country and never received more than a 2 or 3rd grade education. I don’t believe he has ever been formally catechized and as far as I know he has not gone to confession. He has always worked and taken care of his family best he knows how. He has always had a HUGE devotion to St. Barbara so…sorry to babble on. Thank you and God bless you greatly in return.

  2. StJude says:

    Please pray for Eric.. a dear friend who died last week. He had a big heart. I will miss him so much.

    Please also pray for my brother who is looking for a job.
    and for my intentions. God bless you all.

  3. Philangelus says:

    A friend of mine is piecing together memories of the abuse she suffered as a child at the hands of her parents. Please pray that she’s able to stay stable and find a good professional to work through this with her.

  5. mamajen says:

    I hate asking for myself, but if you could spare a little prayer for me, I would appreciate it. I spent 10 hours in the ER yesterday because a cold developed into a cough and fever. Being heavily pregnant, it’s more of a concern. I’m feeling much better today and I’m on medicine now, so I’m hopeful the worst is over. I am so very grateful for those of you who have been praying for me these past several months.

  6. kathygeorge says:

    Please pray for my husband’s cousin, Paul. He fell while playing racketball, fractured his skull all the way around the back, ended up in a coma and on a ventilator. Fortunately he is at home now, and in three types of rehab for traumatic brain injury, but it will be a long recovery. Please pray for his wife and family as well.

  7. LarryW2LJ says:

    For our Pastor, Fr. John Paul A. who will be undergoing hernia surgery on Thursday.

  8. tealady24 says:

    I am adding all of Fr. Z’s prayer requests, daily, to my prayer-list. Into the hands of the Blessed Mother they go.

  9. TopSully says:

    Please pray for my father, Dennis, who is having repeated bouts with fluid in his lungs. They drain his lung and in a few days time they refill. So far the Dr.s haven’t found the cause so they don’t know how to treat. It is extremely uncomfortable for him.

  10. I will add Fr.Z’s and everyone’s requests to my rosary intention tomorrow. Please pray for the religious vocation of someone who has desired it for a very long time.

  11. Matt R says:

    For some family needs (related to my dad’s work situation) and a personal intention that I have been wrestling with for a long time. Thanks.

  15. kateriwriter says:

    I have several prayer requests:
    -For the spiritual and mental well-being and speedy recovery of a friend who has been ill since January;
    -For a friend and classmate who has discerned a calling to the priesthood and is joining a missionary order later this year;
    -For a friend who is actively discerning a conversion to Catholicism and several others who are contemplating such a discernment;
    -For a few special intentions concerning my family.
    Thank you all very much, and I will be praying for all of you and your intentions, spoken and unspoken.

  18. darcy says:

    Asking prayers for total healing as I begin my 4th and hopefully final round of chemo today. Also asking prayers that the side effects won’t be too bad this time, and that within about 5 weeks my baby will be able to return to nursing. Thank you, and I am praying for your intentions too.

    Dear Darcy, I will pray especially for you.

  21. akp1 says:

    Praying for Fr. Z. and all of these. Please pray for a young lady who lost her unborn child at 23 weeks – she is suffering and had kept the pregnancy secret, so has limited emotional support.

  22. I could use some heavy prayers for my soul these days, for true Hope.

  23. deutschlehrer says:

    Please pray for my uncle who suffered a massive heart attack last night and is unconscious in the ICU.

  24. Dr. Eric says:

    My heart is heavy knowing that there are people out there suffering so much. May God send the healing and help you need.

  25. mburduck says:

    1) Please pray for my mother, Peggy, who died 12/31/11;

    Please pray that my financial needs will be met and that I can find work in my field and according to my ability. Thank you.

  31. Please intensify your prayers for His Excellency, Archbishop Vigneron of Detroit. The flap from even his own flock and the media is nasty at this point. True shepherds will always be under attack for upholding the Faith and Moral teachings entrusted to them. The Eastern Orthodox Community in the area are standing in solidarity with him.

  39. lizaanne says:

    For my father who tried to take his own life shortly before Easter, and who suffers from chronic catatonic depression. Please pray that he will submit to serious treatment, and that he is healed.

    Also for my step-sister who lost her child three weeks ago (would have been her fourth) at 9 weeks, and for her mother who is having to juggle a lot of needs right now between my dad and her daughter.

    Thank you all for your time and your prayers.

  40. mamajen says:

    Thank you everyone.

  41. StWinefride says:

    I pray for all the above intentions.

    Thank you.
