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 pressing personal petition.

  1. VexillaRegis says:

    I’m in a pickle, not caused by me. Please pray that the situation resolves itself!

    Fr. M needs a lot of prayers too.

  2. Sonshine135 says:

    First and foremost- Vocations! Secondly, please pray for a quick resolution to financial issues. Thank you!

  3. HeatherPA says:

    Please pray for me and my family. I went into premature labor on the 25th and we had our little baby Margaret too early. She lived long enough for Father to baptize her , thanks be to God, and we are so relieved for that. as she is a Saint in heaven. Just a few more weeks… However…my heart is very heavy. And I am fighting hurt and a deep sadness…I know it is selfish in light of where she is. Her funeral Mass was beautiful and she has a very sunny hillside plot in the Catholic Cemetary.
    I will pray for all the intentions posted, and of course for yours Fr. Z.

  5. pannw says:

    Please pray for the conversion of my husband.

    God bless you, Heather.

  6. VexillaRegis says:

    Dear Heather, I’m so sorry! When you have a miscarriage or deliver too early, not only does your soul mourn, your body does too! Adoration, exercise and a massage every now and then are my suggestions. You will feel better, but you will never forget. Be assured of my prayers.

  7. mamajen says:

    For the soul of Sister Miriam Regina, OSF who passed away last Wednesday and was laid to rest this morning.

  8. StJude says:

    Heather.. I am so sorry.. and I will pray for you and your family. May God comfort you in this sad time.

    For Liz, an elderly woman who fell and is having all kinds of issues because of the fall. For K and M who are having marital problems.
    Prayers for a personal intention of mine.

    God bless you all.

  9. mamajen says:

    Heather, I am so, so sorry for you and your family. I hope the knowledge that you are the parents of a little saint gives you some comfort. You are not selfish, you are a loving mother. Even Mary, who knew her son was God, felt her heart pierced with a sword when Jesus died. God bless you and your family. Margaret is in heaven praying for you now.

  10. LaxMom25 says:

    Special prayers for Heather and her family.

    I pray for all of the needs here, and pray in thanks for Father Z who has brought us together.

    For our oldest son who suffers with a chronic disease. I’ve been asking Saints Timothy and Elmo for a miracle.

    For strength and protection against the darkness of the world that feels at times to be closing in.

    For faith, hope, and charity in all of us.

    For the Poor Souls in Purgatory, and all those who will die this day.

  15. Kensington says:

    Please pray for my papa. He’s 81 years old and in rehab right now recovering from pneumonia. He needs to get his strength back before he can come home, and he’s angry and bitter and full of venom. He needs to stop fighting with his nurses and to start cooperating with his therapists or he’s going to end up in a nursing home.

    Please pray that God shows him the way, and that he feels God’s love and lets go of his anger.

  16. rsalie says:

    If you all would be so kind as to pray for my 5 year old son. He was just diagnosed with a bone problem that while not life threatening it is painful and can result in deformity of his leg and chronic pain if it doesn’t heal well. He is a trooper and doesn’t complain much but I can tell he is suffering.

  17. Supertradmum says:

    Very serious problem. Very. Prayers please.

  18. OrthodoxChick says:

    Prayers for all of you.
    Please also continue to pray for baby “I”. Barring a miraculous intervention, it looks like she will be taken away from the family who has raised her since birth and sought to adopt her. The state is planning to place her instead with her uncle’s family out of state. Please pray that if this comes to pass that she will end up in a happy home filled with love and, God-willing, the devout Catholic faith that she has known since birth to this point.

  19. Mariana2 says:

    Praying for all the above intentions, specially for Heather.

    Please pray for my best friend who has Creutzfeld-Jakob and only weeks to live. She lives in a Catholic country but has had nothing but disdain for the Church, and isn’t a practicing Lutheran either.

  20. Peggy R says:

    Heather, I am sorry for the loss of little Margaret. I shall pray for your family.

    I seek prayers for an ongoing medical situation to be resolved soon. It has been painful and frustrating as well.

    For a friend’s ill parents.

  21. NoraLee9 says:

    Heather you’re in my prayers. I’ve been where you are.
    Please pray that my husband and our daughter can be reconciled. She says she hates him. She has left home at 16 to stay with family near her school in the city
    Please pray for my husband, who just can’t get over the break in our family. And pray that he can get a better attitude towards his job.
    And for me. If things don’t improve soon, I don’t know how much more I can take.

  22. HeatherPA says:

    Thank you everyone. I feel humbled and blessed to have so many caring people who I will never meet in earthly life who will pray for my family- the embodiment of spiritual works of mercy.
    My heart is full. God bless you all and be sure of my prayers for all of your intentions and continued spiritual growth. +

  23. Menagerie says:

    My prayers ate offered for all requests. I will remember them in my rosary. Heather, my heart goes out to you.

    I ask prayers for a special intention. Thanks to all for your prayers.

  24. Ryan says:

    I shall pray for all of the above.
    -My mother’s fiancee was this week diagnosed with ALS and is degenerating rapidly.
    -Also, in 25 days I separate from the Navy after 10 years in order to discern my vocation. I have no idea how to proceed nor whether I am obligated to remain in this archdiocese for my discernment. I came into the church here just earlier this year.

  25. lmo1968 says:

    Please pray that I may find a job that will allow me to support myself and pay my bills. Also, for an ongoing medical situation that it resolves itself. Thank you.

Z., VexillaRegis (sorry you are caught in the middle of something!), all others who have posted, and those intentions yet to be posted this week, to my Rosary. Pax vobiscum.

  29. JonPatrick says:

    Marni Evans is planning on having an abortion. Here is an interview with her and her fiance.

    Let us pray to St Michael, for the protection of this baby and salvation his/her mother. No time to lose.

    Novena Prayer
    Saint Michael the Archangel, loyal champion of God and His people, I turn to you with confidence and seek your powerful intercession. For the love of God, Who made you so glorious in grace and power, and for the love of the Mother of Jesus, the Queen of the Angels, be pleased to hear my prayer. You know the value of my soul in the eyes of God. May no stain of evil ever disfigure its beauty. Help me to conquer the evil spirit who tempts me. I desire to imitate your loyalty to God and Holy Mother Church and your great love for God and people. And since you are God’s messenger for the care of His people, I entrust to you this special request: (Mention your request).
    Saint Michael, since you are, by the Will of the Creator, the powerful intercessor of Christians, I have great confidence in your prayers. I earnestly trust that if it is God’s holy will my petition will be granted.
    Pray for me, Saint Michael, and also for those I love. Protect us in all dangers of body and soul. Help us in our daily needs. Through your powerful intercession, may we live a holy life, die a happy death, and reach heaven where we may praise and love God with you forever.

    My mother would have celebrated her 98th birthday today, she passed away Easter Sunday morning 2006. A prayer for her soul would be appreciated.


  34. VexillaRegis says:
