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 ask a prayer for myself.  I’m dealing with a lot of challenges right now.

Also, please pray for TF, who is facing serious – faith related – marriage problems.  Great suffering.

UPDATE: 13 Jan 22

I received this in email.

Message Body:
A good friend of mine, Joe H., went into the hospital two days ago after having contracted COVID and his lips turned blue.  His wife wasn’t allowed in but long story short the he’s in really bad shape. He has acute respiratory failure and if he makes it through will eventually need a lung transplant.  He’s 36 years old and was fighting fit when he got the disease. He’s a good man and a good Catholic. They have 6 small children, and that family needs a miracle.  His wife says they are asking Fr. Michael McGigivney to obtain one. This is the prayer they’ll be using if you could spread the word as best you can…

God, our Father, protector of the poor and defender of the widow and orphan, you called your priest, Father Michael J. McGivney, to be an apostle of Christian family life and to lead the young to the generous service of their neighbor. Through the example of his life and virtue may we follow your Son, Jesus Christ, more closely, fulfilling his commandment of charity and building up his Body which is the Church.

Let the inspiration of your servant prompt us to greater confidence in your love so that we may continue his work of caring for the needy and the outcast. We humbly ask that you glorify your venerable servant Father Michael J. McGivney on earth according to the design of your holy will. Through his intercession, grant the favor I now present for the full and complete healing of Joseph’s body so he may return home to his family. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Thank you, Father, for hosting this forum for prayer requests! I ask for prayers for the repose of the soul of Mr. Paul A. Hundt, a good and faithful servant who was called home suddenly just before the New Year. His funeral Mass was this past Friday. Paul and his wife founded the classical school our boys attend, Aquinas Academy, and his faithfulness and dedication will continue to live on in the many lives he has touched through this project!

    –In thanksgiving for my brother-in law David beating cancer
    –For the Pentlow family, physical and emotional healing
    –For my mother, vision, hearing and bone degradation issues, and lots of physical pain
    –For Joann who is fighting serious bladder cancer, and her family; for all of the infirm, their loved ones, and those caring for them
    –For my nephew Luke with Down Syndrome, help with his anxiety and continence, his peace of mind
    –For my nephew Gabriel, help with his ADHD and autism
    –In thanksgiving for God’s grace in my life

    Prayers for all on here.

    I was going to go on and on about traditional religious orders, traditional priests and seminarians and Catholic families and I realized that I could just ask for prayers for faithful Catholics. It’s difficult to be that these days and I know many who are going through really hard times right now.

    God bless and keep all of you!

    He writes:

    ”Some of You Have Noticed I Have Been Missing Around Here.
    I’ve been fine. I’ve just been working on other projects that must be done, namely my will, last testament, and funeral plans.

    Nothing easy about these things, so please pray for me during this time.”

  29. SixtusVIth says:

    My mother has suffered several strokes and is now functionally blind and in need of a feeding tube due to delirium (she doesn’t know her body needs food and barely nibbles at what is offered her). I have instructed the doctors that she is not to be starved but the situation is delicate and I hope and pray for her full and complete healing.
