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.

Also, please pray for RD, recovering from Lyme’s Disease.

  1. MrsMacD says:

    For SN, AG, A, MT, J, and S, all young ladies concidering a religious vocation and having personal trials/afflictions.

  2. ASPM Sem says:

    Seminarian Chris Vance, from the Archdiocese of St. Paul/Minneapolis, and his sister have chronic Lyme’s disease. Pleas pray for them and if possible donate to help with their medical bills:

  3. Kathleen10 says:

    Our son has married the girl of his dreams, and they are sweet, like turtle doves. His wife Angie is carrying their first baby, James, and Angie has just developed breast cancer. She must have chemo soon, deliver the baby around December, have surgery within two weeks of delivery, then more chemo.
    I could not wait for the opportunity to ask for prayers for them here. Thank you all so much for any prayer. I will pray for any intentions here as well.

    And thank you, Fr. Z., for publicizing the visit to states by the relic of St. Maria Goretti. Our diocese did not apparently mention this visit of St. Maria Goretti to our state, and we would have missed it. Thanks to you, we were able to venerate St. Maria Goretti, and take our petition for her intercession right to her. You made that possible because you posted it, and we thank you!
    St. Maria Goretti, please pray for Angie, our son, and baby James.

    For health of my body and soul and all Catholics considering a vocation.
    Kathleen10 know that the communion of saints here on earth and in heaven will plead to Our Lord for healing for Angie and her family

  5. iPadre says:

    For the parish and community of Christ the King in Chicago after the tragic fire that destroyed their church.

  6. VexillaRegis says:

    For our dear friend K, who has just entered the final stages of prostate cancer. There is nothing more that the doctors can do for him now. At least he lived long enough to see his oldest son getting married to a lovely girl this summer. He is only 58.

    For E, a fellow musician, who died of breast cancer in August. I hope she is in heaven playing hymns with the angels :-)

    For my parish. There seems to be no end to the bad things happening there. Pray that our bishop finally listens to us and sends us a new priest who isn’t furious all the time and doesn’t drag us into total financial ruin.

    For all refugees from the Middleeast. God have mercy!

  7. Mike says:

    For success finding a new job, and that the organization whose employ I will be leaving successfully resolves its ongoing funding problems.

    For safe travels to everyone participating in next month’s tour of Italy organized by the Washington, D.C., Oratory-in-Formation in commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the birth of St. Philip Neri.

  8. JKnott says:

    Thank you Father for this call for prayer from so many of the faithful here.
    All are in my heartfelt prayers, and I ask your good prayers for my brother JKK (heart problems) and sister-in-law JMK (just diagnosed with lung cancer both diagnosed in the same week.

  9. Mike says:

    Prayers for all intentions here, especially for Kathleen10‘s daughter-in-law and son and their baby.

  10. mtmajor says:

    Work; I need work! Please pray for my wife and I, for I’m frustrated and disappointed at this cross I must carry.

  11. aviva meriam says:

    praying for all of you and your special intentions.

    Please pray for Z.H. and her family…. the daughter is extremely ill and medications are not working
    Please pray for J.D. and his family: after months’ of searching he found what he thought was a great job, only to discover the previous owner embezzled and new owner shut down company 7 months after he started with them.. He needs work desperately.

    Please in your kindness pray for me and my family: we still have three pressing intentions.


  12. majuscule says:

    I could use some prayers that my depression lift, even a little, so that I can be the cheerful caregiver that I struggle and fail to be.

    I realize there are so many whose lot in life is more dire than mine and I pray for you all.

  13. catholiccomelately says:

    For work, for both my husband and I.
    For continuing reconciliation with 2 of our grown children.
    Four our brothers and sisters in the Middle East.
    For finding a way to speak lovingly and honestly with a friend who is same-sex attracted and in a long-term relationship.

  14. For the conversion of my family. And a more suitable job situation for myself.
    I will remember all of you in my prayer intentions, every day.

  15. benedictgal says:

    I have been overcome with a sense of fear and dread for the past few months. I have been praying to St. Jude for the grace to accept God’s will and to learn to be happy. This may not be a dire circumstance compared to the very serious ones posted here, but, the fear and dread have been causing me to inexplicably wake up at 3AM for many nights. I have been asking the Lord to help me with this, but, I just seem to be hit with a lot of despair of late, as well as lack of confidence.

    Thank you, in advance, for your prayers. I will keep all of you in mine.

  16. Please pray for my wife and I. We are going through the immigration process, and we are very tight right now, and are going to have to really do the process after her visa is up, which can cause problems. Please pray that we can get her her green card without problems. Thank you and God bless you!

  17. Eugene says:

    I will add all these intentions to my daily Rosary. Including Fr. Z.
    Please the health of my 86 year old father just admitted to hospital, for the return to the sacraments of my wife and children, and the protection of our Church during this Synod.
    God bless and help you all.

  18. NancyP says:

    For my friend, who has an extremely aggressive form of brain cancer. She is married, with two young sons. Please pray for her healing (it will take a miracle) and for her return to the faith.

    For my mother-in-law, who tries mightily to be a loving grandmother and is receiving very little in return.

    For my son’s job search.

    Thank you for your prayers. I will remember your intentions in my daily prayers.

  19. Bridget says:

    Dear prayer warriors:
    Our family of 7 faces an eviction date in about 6 weeks from our home of 17 years (which is in the final stages of foreclosure). We are without a firm solution to our housing needs, although we have been actively seeking and do have a few options identified. A pending real estate transaction upon which our primary plan hinges is not happening as we had hoped, which may mean 2 relocations rather than 1. We pray for stability (God willing) especially for the sake of our two foster daughters, one of whom will be particularly vulnerable and destabilized with too much change and uncertainty.

    Please intercede for our family!

  20. mysticalrose says:

    Please pray for the soul of my dear friend, Milton, and for his wife.

  21. chantgirl says:

    In response to ipadre’s post, there is a GoFundMe page set up to help raise funds for rebuilding:

  22. andia says:

    Please pray for a very special intention for Father David Bialkowski,

    For all priests

    and for me as I am also discerning and having issues finding an order that will take older vocations and are not cloistered, thanks

  23. Little Girl Lost says:

    I know this may sound nuts, but I think I may be suffering some kind of diabolical obsession, or even possession. I’ve made promises to the devil before, and kept getting dragged back toward him and doing it again, even after leaving, even after Baptism. I recently returned to Tradition and have been trying hard to amend my life. But I’m suffering horribly, especially since yesterday, and I’m so overwhelmed with indescribable, possibly irrational emotions and thoughts. I keep reflecting on how horrible my life has become (undeniably true) and thinking that it’s God’s fault instead of Satan’s, even though I know it got frenetically worse every time I turned to the devil for help. I don’t know how to say this, but it seems impossible to resist, really.

    I tried going to a trad priest for help, but he basically blew it off, saying I looked like a “good girl” and so it couldn’t be true. I didn’t tell him the extent of my satanic involvement, though, or the pacts – I’m used to pretending to be whatever anyone wants in a desperate bid for an affection I never had as a girl. The extent of my loss of self-control and desperation is scary, and it’s getting worse. I feel sometimes like there’s something inside trying to take me over, but I’ve tried telling myself it’s just pain. It’s scarier because I’ve learned I might have cancer.

    Sorry for rambling.
