St. Raphael Comments

St. Raphael is one of seven Archangels who stand before the throne of the Lord. He was sent by God to help Tobit, Tobiah and Sarah. At the time, Tobit was blind and Tobiah's betrothed, Sarah, had had seven bridegrooms perish on the night of their weddings. Raphael accompanied Tobiah into Media disguised as a man named Azariah. Raphael helped him through his difficulties and taught him how to safely enter marriage with Sarah. Tobiah said that ... Continue Reading

    I choose St. Raphael as my Confirmation Saint to follow me through life. I am 29 now and I know that he has protected me. I have been involved in a few very major car accidents and St. Raphael pulled me from these catastrophic events UNTOUCHED. In 2 accidents EMTs were amazed that I walked away with out a scratch and for that I am eternally greatful. I now pray daily that God continues to allow St. Raphael to watch over me during my travels.

    Dear St. Raphael,
    I am just a humble catechuman who is just learning about our Mighty Father. The more I learn and Christ and hs hope for each of us, the more I realize how unworthy I am to become a Christian. I have hope in my heart that I will grow in my faith and be more of the woman that God wants me to be.

    I pray to you to help guide me in my path as it seems to have brought me to a very difficult crossroads with my husband. What he thinks he desires for his happiness is exactly what I can't bear to go back to. And vice versa. Please help us to heal our wounds and the sadness so that we can connect once again. I pray to you to help him find relief from his pain, anxiety and depression. For myself, I pray for my vision to carry me through my life.

    I am grateful for God leading me to him at this stage in my life.

    Thank you St. Raphael .

    Dear Archangel St Raphael, St Raphael, desperately I cry out to you for your help. I am lost, afraid, lonely, confused and hurting. I am depressed. My relationship with Ric W. has gone downhill extremely fast these last few months. I ask for your intercession and prayers on my behalf to God the Father Almighty, whom we humbly serve. I ask that you pray that I may be released from my mental anxiety, heal our broken hearts, help us find our love for each other and remove all obstacles that block us from finding this. I ask for your prayers for our happiness, a loving and committed relationship leading to marriage and a healthy child. I pray that you bless us with togetherness for this coming New Year’s Eve. In the name of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior I pray. I thank you for your guidance and protection. Continually I shall praise God the Father Almighty.

    Dear st. Raphael,

    I've been having very bad nightmares night after night. Please, as I pray, walk through my dreams and destroy all evil that comes my way. Also, please not only watch over me but as well as my family. &last but not least, for the ones I lost, including my past lovers. Give us peace &rest.

    Amen.

    Thank you so much. I love you.

    My throat is sore, my chest is also sore - the tightening hurts. I don't know what to pray anymore. I am so frustrated and lonely. I wish I had someone with me perhaps to talk once in a while. I know God has been good to me this entire time and I should not be complaining knowing there are other people in much worst situation than I am. I will have another chemo this coming week. Please let it not be difficult. Thank you.

    Thank you St. Raphael. I feel my strength and confidence are almost back; mainly because my white count has been corrected. I still have to go to the lab for more test to stabilize it. But thank you for inteceding for me. My appetite is somewhat back. I can eat and have the strength to cook now. I want to get well; I know I will with your help.

    Archangel Raphael,

    My spouse and I recently came upon a pamphlet by Angela Carol that tells your story. Today our son called with disturbing news of his and our daughter in law pregnancy that the ultra sound showed problems with the developing baby. I know God sends doctors to help make us well, but somethings doctors can't heal. We pray if it's God's will for a healthy pregnancy for our sons family. We also ask for godly discernment in any decisions that our son and his wife will be making. I've prayed to God directly for peace and healing for our grandchild and am also prayerfully requesting to you for a miracle of healing.

    st raphael i pray for all the people in this world who is sick, hungry, and need help financialy and spiritually may there prayers be answeared first before mine, please bless us with mercy and the vision of seeing problems as a blessing from god to change the world
    for the better. On this night im asking you to transform my soul into a better person to
    understand whats good from evil and to stop smoking pot. I have been living life a lie
    spending my time foolishly i had hope by this age (24) i would have been married to
    my ex fiance who had left me seven months ago for my foolish and arrogant actions
    for i am the one to blame for my own outcome. I need help to change for who god
    wants me to be please pray for me to be that man with wisdom and understanding of life.
    please i pray to you st raphael to bring back the women i loved so much back into my life
    for she was the one who cared for me and loved me for who i was and i did'nt acknolwedge the blessing that was in my face. On this day i will keep an oath till the day im burried
    and see you on judgment day at the heaven gates, that i will never smoke pot or chase after lust and the evil paths to hell. I promise you my lord i may not see my future the way you have it written for me but i know i have a choice to do good every sec of my life and keep it that way forever.

    Please forgive me lord!! have mercy on me!!!

    It's me again. I've been getting sick very often mainly because of my low white count. I am very down and losing hope. Please intecede for me. I know I can win over this with your help. I know God has a reason for putting me in this situation but there are times when I can't handle things anymore. I get weak and I feel like giving up. I've been telling myself there are other people who are in worst situation than I am. Please give me hope. I want to be cured and do more if given the chance.

    St. Raphael I am feeling down, frustrated and losing hope. I am a positive person but lately I am becoming different. I have cancer and getting chemo. I get so tried easily no matter how rested I am. Help me please. I don't want to complain to my friends so much because I donot want to worry them. They have been helping me a lot as it is and I don not want to burden them all the more. I pray for strength physically and emotionally. Thank you St. Raphael.
