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.

I still have a pressing personal petition.  I could use your prayers, frankly.  The recent past has brought some bad and discouraging news and, as I foresee, there is worse on the horizon.  I must move into warfare mode soon.

Pray for the poor suffering Christians in Iraq!

Sts. Nunilo and Alodia, pray for us!

  1. wanda says:

    Please pray for a dear man and friend who is enduring the ravages of cancer and chemotherapy.
    Prayers for you and for your intentions, Fr. Z.
    I will remember the intentions of other readers.

  2. HeatherPA says:

    My dear friend SP, 42 yo in end stage cancer, that she doesn’t die outside the sacraments.
    My husband, who has his third interview Wednesday for a very good job 13 miles from our home.
    My unborn daughter, for a easy, safe delivery and health of mind and body.
    Will be praying for all intentions listed.

  3. maryg says:

    Please pray for my daughter who is having surgery (as I type this) for thyroid cancer. I will be praying for all the prayer intentions listed here as well.

  4. Cafea Fruor says:

    Please pray for my mother. She’s severely mentally ill and has been off her medicine for what seems like eons now, and she’s getting worse and worse. And until she becomes dangerous, I can’t help her one iota, so please also pray for me to be patient with her but also to let go of worry, accept my inability to help, and just hand it over to our ever-capable Father.

  5. Liz says:

    Please pray for a resolution to my daughter who has been sick for 18 months. Thanks and prayers for all of your intentions.

  6. Liz says:

    *for my daughter

  7. APX says:

    My vocation discernment has been put on hold until I get my large student loan debt paid off. I would like to get it down as low as possible within the next two years so I can resume discernment, which will require a lot of fortitude, wisdom and generously.

  8. Mike says:

    For Marian fortitude in acceptance of the will of God as I deal with personal and professional challenges.
    For my 91-year-old neighbor B. as she continues to recover from her recent stroke.
    That my brother may return to the sacraments after an absence of nearly 50 years and bring his family with him.

    Prayers ascending for everyone here.

  9. aviva meriam says:

    Please pray for my friend and mentor JudyC who must have surgery to remove a kidney with malignant disease.

    Please Pray for A.B. as she works to build a new life. Please pray for her father, sister and brother who are struggling due to unhealthy choices.

    Please pray for me that God will Grant me the path forward to rebuild my life and career so that I can better support myself and my family.

  10. Quanah says:

    For two students who recently committed suicide (both within a month of each other) and for all the students, faculty, and staff was we continue to mourn.

  11. John Grammaticus says:

    For our Persecuted Bretheren around the world, the conversion of those who persecute them and for two pressing personal intentions

    Will Pray for all here

  12. pgepps says:

    Praying through the list.

    I have a friend who needs a right way out of a bind, but I should withhold the details. Pray that he will continue to be drawn into closer union with Christ, and be encouraged by the Untier of Knots along the way.

    Another friend is beset with spiritual enmity and physical infirmity as he continues to strive to be faithful in leadership. Healing, rest, and the protection of St. Michael are all appropriate.

    Finally, I could use your prayers, myself. A complication of my student loan situation leaves me in an unhappy stand-off with those who won’t correct their errors, no matter how many lives it ruins. I continue to do my best to be faithful while also appealling to those who can intervene. The solution lies with our Heavenly Father, however; I continue to seek the intercession of St. Jude, who has been mighty on my behalf in the past (so much so that I took him for my patron at my Confirmation).

    Thanks be to God! And may our struggles be proven occasions of His mercies, in this life and the next.

  13. iPadre says:

    For two of our diocesan seminarians, one from my parish, who will be ordained deacons on October 2nd in St. Peter’s Basilica.

    Will place all of you and your intentions in the chalice and on the patten tomorrow morning.

  14. VexillaRegis says:

    Dear friends, I will pray for all of your intentions here.

    Please pray for a family with a lot of really serious health problems and for K-E who’s had a cancer relapse.
    Also pray for Fr. M who is causing us so much sadness, fear and anger.
    Would you also please pray for me?
    Thank you.

  15. lmgilbert says:

    Please remember my brother, Joe, who left the Church over the scandals, and became an evangelical/pentecostal:
    1) For his conversion
    2) He has begged prayers of me because of severe pains in his legs, back and hip due to an auto accident.
    3) for his daughter, Kelly, who is converting to Catholicism, that the Lord will give her an intense love of the Eucharist, Our Lady and the pope and use her as apostle in our very mixed up family.


  16. Ichabod says:

    Please pray for two men who are great husbands, fathers and grandfathers who are not doing well after a series of medical mishaps.
    Prayers for you and for your intentions, Fr. Z.
    I will remember the intentions of others here.

  17. Chris Garton-Zavesky says:

    Ongoing prayers, please, to the Infant Jesus.

  18. Mike says:

    Let’s not forget to offer up one another’s intentions at the Memento. No prayer on Earth has value to compare with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and there is no finer way for us in the pews to assist at Mass than to unite our intentions of adoration, praise, thanksgiving, reparation, and impetration with those of the priest at the altar — especially as Fr. Z and all faithful priests gird for the coming chastisement.

  19. KateD says:

    Please pray for a woman who I met today while out shopping. She was married in the Catholic church at a very young age and attended regularly until at 19 her husband left her for another woman. She was told she could no longer receive the sacraments or participate in the life of the church. She led a life apart from God for a number of years and then became born again and married a Lutheran. I don’t believe our meeting today was happen stance. I believe our Lord is calling her back to her faith. Please pray with me for Karen’s return home to the Catholic Church.

  20. Eugene says:

    I have prayed for all above plus Father Z’s intention to our Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus and with the intercession of our Blessed Mother and St Joseph.
    I ask for your prayers for the return to the sacraments of my wife and children, for my son Nicholas that he may find work, for my recently widowed father and for the repose of the soul of my recently deceased mother, who I miss very much.
    God bless you all

  21. JonPatrick says:

    Please pray for my son N who found out last week he has a rare form of Leukemia resulting from a genetic mutation. Fortunately there is a treatment involving a medication that kills off the bad cells. Pray that the treatment succeeds and he can have a normal life. He already had one heavy cross to bear, now he has two.

  22. Moral_Hazard says:

    Please pray for my wife and my infertility struggles over 3 years. Also, please pray for my father and my mother-in-law with their health troubles and that my sister-in-law and brother-in-law return to the church.

    I offer prayers and my work for the intentions of this thread and Fr. Z’s intentions.

  23. kevinm says:

    I offered prayers for all of the intentions above and ask your prayers for help with a serious financial matter.


  24. Margaret says:

    A homeschooler, mother to four young children, was taken to the hospital this morning with blue lips and non-responsive. No further details. Please pray hard.

  25. Torpedo1 says:

    Praying for all intentions here, especially Fr. Z’s. Please pray for my husband and I. Our challenges are weighing very heavily on my heart. I am frightened and sad today. Also, please pray for my father and the rest of my family, that they may return to God and the Church.

  26. Margaret says:

    Please pray for the repose of the soul of Tricia Jennings, mentioned above. Mother of five, not four. May her soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

  27. Supertradmum says:

    Still asking Mary Undoer of Knots to help me live in Auld Blighty. Please pray with me. It has been over a year since I have seen my only son, and I feel called to the EU, for whatever reason…

  28. mysticalrose says:

    Please pray for an older women in my parish who is undergoing the most profound suffering I can imagine. And for the repose of the soul of another person. And for hope.

  29. RMT says:

    Please pray that my wife and I will be able to conceive and to be parents

  30. UncleBlobb says:

    Please for my 82-year-old mother who was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. Please also pray for my father.

  31. LeslieL says:

    Please pray for a very special intention for a young priest friend of mine, Fr. JM…..I know I’ve been asking for this each month, but I believe in storming heaven……
    And please keep my husband Mike in your prayers – as his MS is worsening.
    Thank you – and know I keep Fr. Z’s intentions – and all of your – in my heart and prayers.

    May the Lord bless and keep each of you :-)
    Please pray for us too: May He mercifully bless us with a Holy Priest who is accessible, provide for our dire financial situation, and heal us.
    Thank you,

  35. Phil_NL says:

    For my grandmother, whose time on this earth might come to an end very soon; that she, in that case, be gently lifted into our Lord’s presence.
