Praying Hands

Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God.

Philippians 4:6

Let Us Pray

Together, let us pray for the needs of our brothers and sisters.
Please remember these intentions in your daily prayers.

  1. Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen!!!

    Mary, 8/21/2014
  2. Dear Heavenly Father, I am grateful for your love and graces. Thank you for the life I have and for never abandoning me. I come to you with my humble head held low asking for your help. I lost my job in July due to conditions beyond my control. You never abandoned those who put you first and remain faithful. I ask that you open the right doors, bring the right people into my life to help me find gainful employment. I pray that the new job you lead me to will keep me here in San Diego if it is your will. Thank you in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. AMEN!

  7. Heavenly Father, my husband left 2 years ago and our divorce is almost final. To everybody it looks like it was all his fault, he had an affair, then returned, then left again to another woman. But in my heart I know it is all my fault. I was a mean and cranky mother and wife. I changed my ways but it was too late, he could never love me again. Father, I begged you to save my marriage but that is not your will. Now I ask that you take the pain away. I am so sad and hurt and ashamed. He is happy with his new girlfriend and I accommodate his schedule so he can spend time with his children. I try to be positive and not complain, but I am sad when my children are with him and not me and I am jealous that he is so happy with his girlfriend who is starting to act like a mother to our children. The pain is so heavy it is starting to stop me from seeing all the blessings I still have. Please Father, help me with my jealousy, sadness, and pain. Help me be a good mother and friend to my almost former husband. Please God, guide me because I desperately need your guidance, and forgive me for my past wrongdoings.

    Jyoti, 8/21/2014
  15. Please pray for me, my wife, and our baby daughter. My wife, whom I love with all my heart, has filed for divorce and left with our baby. She discovered my awful secret. I had been possessed with demons of the flesh, lust and pornography. The pornography progressed and as it does, got worse and more depraved. I at some point started photoshopping the faces of my wife, her friends and family into pornography pictures. I knew it was terribly wrong yet I could not stop doing it. Not only that but I saved these pictures and as many times as I wanted to destroy them I could not bring myself to do so. I knew if my wife ever found them that it would destroy our lives together, and yet I could not stop! She found them on her birthday, and I feel so devastated that I did this to her as she was the most loving and beautiful soul that I have ever met In my life. She did not deserve to be hurt and especially in this manner. The day she left I destroyed all pornography in my possession and have not yet fallen back to this day once. That was four months ago. The cost of this horrible affliction is too great for me to bare. I have turned to god (catholic growing up but never took it serious, and left the practice after confirmation) I go to church almost everyday and pray for hours everyday for understanding and forgiveness from my wife in hopes of reconciling our marriage and brand new family, but she cannot erase the images from her mind, or bring herself to forgive me. The more time that passes through our divorce the farther away she gets from even talking to me. She said she finds me repulsive and I don\'t blame her. I checked myself into therapy directly after she left. I am doing everything I know of to leave that sinful lifestyle well in my past but she does not seem to notice, believe me or care. To make matters worse she has told her family and friends that were in the photos and has surrounded herself with them as her support group. I know they encourage her all day every day to stay on the path of divorce and fill her with negative thoughts of my mistakes. I have confessed my sins. I pray and I pray and I pray...rosaries, novenas, intercessorys . I do my best to better myself in every way I know how on a daily basis. I pray to feel her pain. I pray to take it from her. We had our ups and downs throughout our ten years together but were happy and in love with each other. She will not allow herself to remember anything good between us. I fear she has hardened her heart towards me beyond repair, and is planning on taking my daughter out of my life, or as much as possible. I cannot fathom life without the two of them. Please please pray for my family and I. She refuses to let Christ into her life and will not attend mass or pray. Please I need all of your prayers.

  21. Lord, I consider others and their needs before mine. And I pray that You help me as you strengthen my unbelief! I recently lost my job and
    health insurance. I have been awaiting a much needed surgery which just got approved last week and now I am unemployed. Cobra is very expensive and I truly need to complete this process and receive the surgery so that I want have to restart the clearance process. I divorced my husband of 22 years after discovering he had cheated on me again, after forgiving him numerous tu
    times before. I currently live with him for finical reasons only due to my health. God I trust that all things work together for the good unto those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose. Hear my prayer for help and save me from this state of despair O Lord. As I seek employment open doors that seem closed, as I await this surgery to be scheduled remember me should someone cancel and favor me to get it over prior to my health insurance lapsing. Lord I know that You are able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all I can ever ask or imagine. Have Thine own way Lord, teach me to wait upon You and be of good courage as You strengthen my heart dear God. In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I pray Amen.
