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.

    May I ask for prayers for recovery from a virus causing a throat infection? I’ve been ill with several of these bugs this year already, which is quite depressing, one illness after the other. A little help from Heaven would not go amiss.

    Things ‘n’ Stuff. God knows it.

  3. Suburbanbanshee says:

    Phil_NL: When I had several respiratory infections in a row, it brought down my Vitamin A levels (along with other vitamins), and I didn’t stop getting them until I got my Vitamin A back up. (And obviously the B vitamins, C, and D are all good stuff too.) So help your body out and get it some Vitamin A. (Especially since the next malnutrition step is your hair falling out, which also isn’t fun.) Also, praying!

    Father Z: Praying!

  4. JacobWall says:

    Both parents and a child of a family related to me died in a car accident this weekend in Austin. 2 children (3 & 6) survived. Prayers for all would be much appreciated.

    Also, a friend of mine has serously I’ll with pneumonia in ICU. Although he is not Catholic, he has asked my priest to visit him.

  5. John Grammaticus says:

    That my position is made permanent

  6. xgenerationcatholic says:

    That my mom and I can find a small house to live in near where we can go to daily mass and adoration. Thanks.

  7. VexillaRegis says:

    For my parish, that our angry pastor is removed and that we get a new good one. Very strange and worrying things happen as a result of the pastor’s actions.

    For me, that my left little finger is healed – I’m a musician. I have a doctor’s appointment today.

    For all refugees in the world.

    You are all in my prayers.

    For my youngest child.

    For stability and protection in my job.

    For protection against the malice and temptations of the Devil.

  9. jameeka says:

    Please pray for an urgent intention of mine. It is a matter of life and death. Mary Undoer of Knots, please pray for us.

  10. Please say a prayer for someone who left the noviciate a year and a half ago, and while she has managed to rebuild her life “outwardly” (job, house, etc.), she has lost her trust in God.

  11. Dspauldi says:

    A man I work with will have a triple bypass on Wednessday.

  12. Spade says:

    I just found out (like, 20 minutes ago) that my dad may, hopefully I guess, be put on a heart transplant list. He’s been suffering for heart problems for decades that may ultimately be connected to his chemistry work with the government. Evidently his condition is getting worse, so he might go on the list if he passes some tests Wednesday.

    My wife’s pregnant with his first granddaughter, so I’d like to have him around for a bit longer.

    And now I’m going to go buy some scotch.

  13. aviva meriam says:

    For the country….. I don’t have words to describe exactly how concerned I am.

  14. For the repose of the soul of my brother, Larry Joseph Bordelon, who passed away Feb. 22nd from liver cancer. May he rest in peace. Jesus I Trust in Thee.

    For all the prayer petitions here I ask…My Jesus, Mercy!

  19. APX says:

    I’m currently in ER having a major health issue I’ve never had before and am having really bad anxiety attacks because of it. It doesn’t seem life threatening, but fortunately it started up shortly after I got home from going to confession.

    Also, my uncle went into heart failure today and refused to see a priest. Please pray for him as well.



  20. westham1 says:

    Please pray for my Dad, Michael who is critically ill after a major heart operation.

    In Domino,


  21. Cafea Fruor says:

    @CatholicCoffee, I’ll be praying for this woman in particular, as I went through the struggles of leaving the convent myself about a decade ago. It’s REALLY hard (probably the single hardest thing I’ve ever done), and even harder than entering the convent, so I feel for her.

    If she hasn’t heard of it, you might recommend to her It’s run by a group of women who have made an apostolate of assisting other women who have left religious life. Among other things, they have a blog with helpful posts about things ranging from practical tips for getting on one’s feet as well as dealing with the heartbreak and struggles with faith. And they might even be able to connect her to another woman who lives near her so she can have someone to chat with and lean on a bit.

    Could you pray for my mother who had a minor stroke last Thursday
