Registered here 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.
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.

I received this in email.
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.
