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 new personal petition.  Please pray for me not to hate my enemies.

Also, tonight I received this:

Sent to me: please pray for this priest.

a priest in Rockford who became unconscious and fell in the snow and wasn’t found for a while and
the priest’s name is Father Welch and he needs PRAYERS because the doctors want to cut off his hands and feet. Just terrible so could you let as many people know about father Welch also? Thanks Padre “

UPDATE 21 Feb 21:

I found an update and more information:

  1. Padre Pio Devotee says:

    For the least, the lonely, the last, and the despairing. For all bishops, priests, religious, seminarians & novices, & all members of the church. The dying. The souls in Purgatory, The conversion of sinners, liberty and exaltation of the church.

    For A.F. on the account of her birthday.
    For my 54 Day Rosary novena petitions.
    The conversion of the enemies of God & the church. Safe travels for throughout the year.
    Needs of the church and the nation.
    Thank you Jesus, Mary, and Joesph for answered prayers. Deo Gratias!

  2. JakeMC says:

    Please pray for my brother CAC. He has abandoned the Church due to the scandals.

  3. Michael says:

    For RW that the Lord will heal her many health issues or, if it is His will for her to continue to suffer, that He grant her peace and comfort in knowing and accepting His loving purpose.

  4. Anneliese says:

    I just sent a group text to my friends about how this isn’t starting out well at all for me. The weather here has been not good after what has been a mild winter. I’ve transitioned from a cane to a rollator to help me walk. I live in a 2 flat and my downstairs’ neighbors are terrible. I need some type of a miracle so my life can improve a little. I know I’m supposed to offer up my suffering but can I have a better financial situation to move while I offer up other types of suffering? So one or two prayers might help.

    Also please pray for R and her husband. They’re expecting their first child in July. And please pray for the G family. And finally for the Dominicans of the Central and Southern provinces.

  5. GM Thobe says:

    For our fledgling TLM community to get a regular priest and finalize a place to hold Mass.

  6. jcapt says:

    For my wife and I as we recover from Covid – especially my wife who is hospitalized for treatment and misses being home with our kids terribly. May we be quickly healed with no lasting effects.

    And in thanksgiving for the amazing outpouring of support and prayers from both close friends and acquaintances as we go through this. The love is overwhelming.

  7. KatieP says:

    For Steve, who took his own life last weekend.

  8. Sandy says:

    Please pray for healing from cancer through my husband’s coming surgery. Please also pray for my hip replacement surgery this week and a miraculously speedy recovery so that I can do all that’s needed to help my husband. St. Joseph and Padre Pio, I am counting on miracles from you!

    May all your prayers here be answered, and God bless you, Father Z!

  9. APX says:

    I’m at my wits end financially. I’m almost out of money, despite working. My hours were cut by 25%, but I’m not eligible for any financial support for Covid relief or any other social support. Even the critical workers benefit our premier announced, doesn’t include my profession, even though we were told we were critical to keeping the economy going at the start of it. To top it off, visa just jacked up my interest rate. I can’t handle this anymore.

  10. aut_2b_home says:

    For Linda, who has just been diagnosed with bowel cancer which may have spread to her liver. Her husband is a fallen away Catholic. Also for his mother Carole, my Aunt, who is just weeks from death. She has seen a priest but has been involved with occult practices for most of her life.

  11. beelady says:

    Please pray for good test results for my husband, Patrick.
    He has a serious heart condition and his yearly testing is coming up next week.
    I will pray for Father Z and all intentions posted here.

  12. LeeGilbert says:

    Please remember Henry, a nine year old kid in our complex, in Portland, the transgender capital of the world, whose mother evidently has a full on campaign to feminize him. What nine year old boy should being going around in sandals with an iridescent strap across his foot, for example, or brightly colored leggings, and a bright blue jacket. I fear for this kid. Next come the hormones, I suppose. Pray for him, please.

  13. Peggykp says:

    How is Fr. Welch doing? Everyone is praying for him.

  14. visigrad22 says:

    Yes Peggykp…..many many praying…..can’t find anything on line in any Rockford…please some word, Prayers continue.

  15. G1j says:

    I would graciously ask for prayers for our daughter who is having severe complications associated with her Cystic Fibrosis, double pneumonia, and additional complications with her liver. Prayers for healing, courage, and strength.

  16. snegopad says:

    Please pray for our TLM priest, who is being kicked out of his parish
    because of intrigues and envy —
    he is very prayerful and pious,–his work being very fruitful,
    — and because of being “rigid”…
    That he may find a good and safe place for his important apostolic work.
    (safe from being hindered in his TLM-spreading …).

  17. JesusFreak84 says:

    (First, to stave off finger-wagging, I’m single and live alone, zero prospects for marriage.) I’m having an IUD stuffed in me this week to deliver hormones that will hopefully reverse the endometrial cancer in my uterus, but there’s a chance that my body rejects it and goes into something akin to “labor” to force it out. Given that, since November, whatever has a 0.01% chance (metaphorically or literally) of happening to me has been happening…please pray that my body accepts the treatment and that it WORKS. I’d like to end my life in the distant future with the same amount of organs I started it with…
