My friend Bill is a widower like me. His 28 year old son Will lives with him and is experiencing severe mental illness including delusions. Will has attacked Bill many times and another person once and is currently in jail, but not for much longer. Bill has been staying with me off and on since March 25 since Will doesn’t know where i live. Bill has secured legal guardianship of Will and once this jail term is up, will be attempting to get Will admitted for inpatient psychiatric treatment. Please pray for Will’s healing and Bill’s safety. Thank you.
Please pray for my adult daughter, Diane. She just lost her job. She lives in London and has had trouble getting good work. She suffers from depression. Also, please pray for my brother and his wife. His wife left him last week. They’ve been married 41 years. I pray for a miracle for both my daughter and my brother’s marriage.
My wife left our children and I in February, for another. Please pray that she be granted the graces to see what she has done, in total clarity, recant, and return to our home. I will pray for all of you, and am adding your intentions to my Rosary intentions.
Intentions and reparation of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, and good St. Joseph.
Release of the Holy Souls in Purgatory, especially those most abandoned, forgotten, and furthest from Heaven.
Restoration of Holy Mother Church, and all her bishops, priests, and religious (living and deceased). Restoration and conversion of our country. Conversion of sinners, especially those most hardened.
For B.M., for a complete and total healing of his arm, for his financials, and for the restoration of his health insurance. And a new job for J.M.
Those who have no one to pray for them. And my various novena petitions. As well as for the intentions of all those who read this blog.
For Jasper, a coworker who passed away unexpectedly.
For my family members who have left the Faith
In January I was promoted to resign from my very well paying job. I was unable to deal anymore with lies and dishonesty and immorality in my workplace.
Please pray to St. Joseph the worker that he may open a new source of income for me and my family soon.
Please pray for LM and for TR, that they recover from the mysterious health problems that are affecting so many.
Prayers for all of you, and Father Z.
Prayers for Your Mother Father Z.
Please pray for my dear Sister in law Judith and my Wife Deborah. Judith is dying of Fourth Stage Lung Cancr and it has matastasized.My wife and her sister are very very close. She is suffereing emotionally at the thought of losing her sister.
Our daughter-in-law has cut us off from our son and granddaughter. She is using the threat of divorce to keep them separated from us. My son is very stressed and is seeing a therapist because of depression and suicidal thoughts. We are going to our granddaughter’s First Communion tomorrow without an invitation. Please pray that all goes peaceful and well and my daughter-in-law’s heart is softened. Thank you!
O Holy Spirit, beloved of my soul, I adore You.
Enlighten me, guide me, strengthen me, console me.
Tell me what I should do; give me Your orders.
I promise to submit myself to all that You desire of me
and to accept all that You permit to happen to me.
Let me only know Your Will.
Lord, hear our prayers, Thank You Jesus and Mother Mary.
Please pray I can have a financial miracle so that I can move. I know it’s wrong to pray for money but I’m in need. And please pray my spinal cord can be healed so I can walk. Please pray for Fr. R and for his success in his finals. Please pray for Fr. N. The G family and C family.
Please pray that I too have a financial miracle. I am desperate to make VERY needed personal changes and am trapped by some important needs.
