Continued from THESE.

Let’s remember all who are ill, who will die soon, who have lost their jobs, and who are afraid.

I get many requests by email asking for prayers. Some 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… I’ve been in touch with a friend, T, who asked for prayers “to save my marriage and family”.   I’d appreciate it if you good people would CONTINUE to ask the Holy Family all to intercede.  I have reason to believe that there is demonic interference because of the involvement of a third party who is a busy-body and trouble-maker.

  1. From a reader:

    Dear Father, my wife and I just celebrated our 8 year wedding
    anniversary. We have four young children. My wife was just admitted to
    the hospital- Covid-19 suspected. She’s not doing well at all. She’s
    been sick for over a week now. Could you please say Mass for her
    and/or ask your readers to pray? Her name is Katy. Thank you for your

    For some kind of material hope.

    Prayers for my friend and neighbor, Marvin L., who has battled cancer for 3 plus years. He is suffering with pain, cancer is spreading. He welcomes and appreciates prayer. Independent senior living. Thank you.

  4. OssaSola says:

    We have lost our business and home and my husband can no longer work. I have only found a part-time job and we’re afraid of losing our current home. We have a 13 year old son who is struggling with all the uncertainty and stress. Also, my husband’s little dog who makes him so happy seems to be failing. Kind of a “bad country song”.

    I know my our prayers are heard, but they’ve gotten dry and rote. I will pray for everyone here, thank you for your help.

  5. Dan says:

    For my wife’s father, just admitted to the hospital with pneumonia and congestive heart failure

  6. Anneliese says:

    Thank you, Father. Please pray for the G family. Please pray for a grave matter that’s occurred lately in my life.

  7. Padre Pio Devotee says:

    Please pray for my petitions which I’ve been including in a novena of mine.

  8. JustaSinner says:

    For my trial in September.

  9. Veronica scriptor velum says:

    Father Z, I shall pray hard for that poor young mother suffering from COVID-19 who has been admitted to hospital. I caught the dreaded virus in February, and I can tell you firsthand that even though I didn’t need to be hospitalised, it is really horrible! (It was widespread all over Europe before it reached the USA.)

    I shall pray for all the other requests mentioned here above and on the prayer request page. Only when we reach Heaven wil we discover the true power of prayer.

    OK, I admit this isn’t urgent in terms of time, but it’s definitely urgent in terms of weighing on my heart. After years of being an administrative assistant and not being happy with it, I’ve finally discerned that I should go back to school to become a therapist/psychologist, which is much more in line with my talents and inclinations. I want to pursue a doctorate in psychology, which is a five-year program (master’s and doctorate together), and it’s going to cost big-time. The tuition alone is going to be $120,000 unless I can find scholarships, but the program is intense enough that I won’t be able to work. And that means five years of living expenses, which is a ton when you’re not working. Oh, and did I mention I have very little savings? :-O In other words, I need to find a whole lot of money unless I want to take on a whole lot of debt. Please pray that A) I can get into the program I’m looking into, and B) once I’m in, I can find scads of scholarship/grant money so that I can minimize the loans. I figure that if God’s asking me to do this (and it’s pretty clear it’s His will), then He’ll help me out, but it can’t hurt to ask for prayers when the idea of that much money slightly scares me. Ha.

  11. For my nephew Luke with Down Syndrome, that he would turn a corner on his speech and self expression, and his struggles with anxiety. For my nephew Gabe and his own struggles with anxiety and depression. For the entry into full communion of my brother in law David. Mental and emotional healing for Cristina. Physical healing of Lynda. Complete healing from ALS of Fr. Nathan. For my struggles in my monastic and priestly vocations.

  12. mamajen says:

    For Doug, who suffered a serious work related accident resulting in multiple severe injuries including brain trauma. He has not yet regained consciousness in over two weeks, and it is very hard for his family.

  13. Donna says:

    Dear Fr Z,
    Please pray for me and my family. I am being crushed by obsessive compulsive disorder and it is such a burden to my husband and kids. Our lives have been turned upside down. I am seeking prayers of deliverance and mental and physical healing. Thanks to all for your prayers! I will be praying for you too.

  14. For my step-dad, Henry, 96 years old, who lives at St. Joseph Residence that is run by traditional nuns. A male employee tested positive for Covid 19. After all these months the residents were all clear and now all of a sudden it begins. Please pray that no one else at the residence comes down with this.

    Thank you in advance

    Please pray for an ever more imminent and urgent personal petition, thank you very much, and I continue to pray for all intentions here and prior.

  16. Sudbury_gal says:

    For a woman being pressured into an abortion by a family member, and for the father who is requesting prayers to save his child. Our Lady and St. Joseph, please intercede for this family.

    Having vertigo and dizziness from BPPV for the first time in 4 years. Third or fourth time I’ve had issues with it, first time a single somersault maneuver didn’t fix it, first time it seems to be in both ears, first time it’s lasted more than a few hours to a day, first time it started getting better then, today, started getting worse again… I’m seeing my doctor Wednesday morning, but I was hoping to drive back to my parents’ this weekend for the 4th, go to First Saturday devotions at my home parish, etc., but right now I’m asking a friend to just drive me to the doctor, so I don’t know how driving home 3 hours is going to fly if this isn’t better by then… Prayers that I can still get home for the 4th =-(

    Also having trouble scheduling the necessary training to exercise my 2A rights, but that’s a much lesser issue compared to, y’know, feeling the entire apartment tilt under me.
