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.  Really.  And I would appreciate prayers for a swift, complete, and lasting recovery from a present illness.

  3. Asking prayers for my brother, Larry, who has stage 4 liver cancer. The tumor has grown into the vena cava, not common, so his heart is at great risk. They have given him 2 to 4 weeks at this point. We are praying for a miracle, but most of all praying that he go to Confession; he quit attending Mass about 13 years ago. I sent a priest to see him in the hospital, no Confession. I told him today that if he needed a priest I would ask one to go. He is open to it, I think. I am actually so happy that he is praying to St. John of God and St. Januarius and is carrying a green scapular in his pocket. Unless God gives us a miracle, Larry won’t be here much longer, so mom and I are begging God not to take him until he has gone to Confession and receives Holy Communion. Please pray for that too.
    Thank you

    part 5 of 6] For Chuck: pleading for strong community prayer support for all of my above prayers and for this one: asking for complete,radical,all pervasive,ever deepening,permanent: healing of every fiber and cell of the enormous damage done [inflicted]on my soul over so many years that have resul-ted in rendering me to be so incredibly vulnerable and susceptible to both mind boggling spiritual oppresion [most nights I cannot sleep in peace as I am unceasingly assaulted,bitten,clawed,ripped, etc etc] and incredible sensual temptations that barrage my mind and thoughts and heart incessantly. I believe and am convinced that this spiritual oppresion is aimed at driving me into the depths of perversion and darkness–honestly I am speaking the truth[going on for many, many years now]. Here is what God has revealed to me and I hold these goals up for prayer also: that I need to grow ever more increasingly in: 1) eucharistic love and eucharistic loving service,self donation, self-forgetfulenss,Franciscan humility, meekness; 2) a combined heroic & supernatural degrees,levels, qualities of an unflinching, never failing, all [=pervasive,encompassing,joyful,joyous,joyfilled,confidant] Faith,Hope,Trust,Charity,Chastity, gentleness,tenderness,kindness,compassion,empathy etc–I think that the eucharistic love and the growth in an unflinching, never failing Faith,Trust,Charity and Chastity are the most important here. Please help me.

    Thanksgiving time!! ( I hope this is ok to do)

    A while ago I asked for prayers for a job. I did not get that one ( yet) but I got another one today. That has everything I wanted and that will allow me to stay involved in Church and hopefully make headway on my school loans. Thanks all for all the prayers and Thanks be to God for the job!

  14. VexillaRegis says:

    Dear Andia, congratulations on your new job! I have a similar experience: Last year, after asking for prayers from our fellows on here, I got a job the next day!
