Let Us Pray

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

  1. Please pray for Carol and Kay who are both with cancer. Pray that they heal and turn to The Lordfor everylasting life. Pray for a church goer I know so that she be able to find a part-time job to help support her family in their transition back to the area they once lived. Pray that they find the right church. Pray for my friend\'s living camp that the organizers, attendees, and ministry bear good fruit. Please pray for the persecuted Christians in Iraq and for peace in the holy land. Pray for the people in Kaohsiung after the gas explosion. Pray for a friend\'s friend who is taking his board exams next week. Please pray for another friend to find a husband and father for her future children so she can raise a family in the church. Please pray for another friend who will move to a new place for a new job soon. Please pray for a friend who is suffering from skin allergies. Please pray for another friend who has a very heavy work load and already feels overwhelmed the past work week.

  2. Pray for the little children who are coming alone to the United States. Pray that our government takes care of them humanely, and pray that Catholic Online gets rid of the sponsor Newsmax that asks us to take a survey on whether this little children should be \"deported now or later\". Jesus would say keep them here and protect them. I don\'t care what politicians say, I follow what God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit say - and the Bible tells us that Jesus is in everyone - even in those little illegal immigrants. Thanks be to God!!!!!!! Pray that we become a humanitarian country, not a greedy and war mongering state. Pray that we all follow Pope Francis\'s plea for peace and kindness towards each other. AMEN.

Blessed Mother I ask that you wrap your mantle around my prayers and infuse them with the light of God that radiates from it. Make these prayers your own that your Son.
