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. I have been praying for a job for a while and God blessed me with a number of interviews. I'm now blessed with 3 job offers and ask for your prayers to make the right decision. I'm a single mother and the main and sole provider for my children and need to make the right decision. Please join me in thanking God and join me in asking for his guidance in making the right decision about which job to accept.
    Thank you all for your prayers. God bless you all and may all YOUR prayer requests be answered in Jesus name.

  9. Please pray that if it is Gods will for us to sell and downsize that our home will sell soon. We will be having open house again this saturday and sunday. I am tired, feeling discouraged, frustrated and even depressed with trying to sell our home to dowsize for purpose of doing the wise thing financially. It's been on the market on and of for past 3 year. It's been listed for about 50 days this time and no offers. As we pray about it we still feel led to try to do this. I am tired, frustrated, especially because we see homes we like and might work then they get sold and as new listings pop up they pop for higher prices. We are looking at homes that are about 1000-1300 sq ft smaller. Ours is 3824 sq ft. The smaller homes seem to be going up in price while we already reduced price if ours more than we wanted to. If we reduce ot any further we might downsize only to end up still owing the same. Please pray that if this is still the wise thing to do that it will soon sell and for Gods favor and blessing in the sale beginning with offers and final sale price. The reason we are trying to do this is to end up in a better financial situations. As prices of smaller home go up and ours reduced to what it has it could just end owing the same which would not be a wise thing to do. Do pray that if its not a wise thing to or not in God's plan or will that He will reveal that to us clearly and we could just take it off the market and we could put our time,energy in other things. Please pray for the two agents, Joshua and Helen, who we listed with. pray that God will bless them in this, help and guide them in working the listing.

    Also, please pray that if and when our house does sell for us as we look to purchase a smaller home with more backyard for play. Please pray for Gods wisdom, favor, blessings, protection for us as we shop, make offers and purchase a home. Pray that God will make available the right home at a good price and help us through whole process of selling to downsize

Pray the Lord will be put others in the right places to be his eyes when he can't see. Pray that the Lord continues to bless him with strength and wisdom to guide our most holy Church.

  17. Please, pray for me. I've been sick for 6 years. I can't have a normal life. I haven't gone outside for a year and a half. Please, pray for my health and that I get cured asap and I don't have to take more meds nor see more doctors.
    When I first got ill, my friends turned my back on me. I feel very lonely.
    I live with my family, and they're the cause I got ill. They don't respect me, treat me well, understand me or love me. I'm desperate.
    I need to get well in order to find a job and be able to get away from all this and have my own house and restore my health for good and be happy.
    As well, I'd like to ask you to pray for the man I love to love me back and ask me to be his girlfriend. Leading, this, to our marriage. The beginning of the happy life we both want so much.

    Thank you in advance

  22. Thanks for all your prayers the past 2 months.

    Today marks exactly 2 months since we went our separate ways. It is without a doubt the most down period in my life. In these 2 months a lot of secrets have been made known. My fiance cheated on me and potentially made another girl pregnant. It's devastating as he didn't come clean at first and made me believe that everything was my fault.

    If we can get rid of the girl, I am willing to work on our relationship with counselling.

    Please Lord, guide us to the right path. I love him and his family so much.
    My brain says don't be stupid and move on. My heart tells me there's more to him as a person as he's a wonderful man I've been with for 9 years.

    Please rid all this evil that is in our path of marriage.
