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. For my Sister and hopefully her new born baby, she has been rushed into hospital

    Jonathan, 12/18/2014
  2. For the healing of my infant nephew who has brittle bone disease.

    Alex, 12/18/2014
  3. A person has requested prayer. Her mother is at death-bed, devastated by cancer and chemoterapies. Her brother is a disabled person. She is now alone, after 23 years of marriage and 3 kids. Constant tension at work. Constant problems in family. Cousin\'s wife entered a satanic sect and has made him leave the apartment.

    Please, dear friend, say a prayer.

    in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit

    Chris, 12/18/2014

  9. I am asking for a prayer for my friend who went to a job interview today in hopes that she gets the job as a Paraprofessional for the Sault Ste Marie Middle School in Michigan. It would greatly help her family if she secures this job. Her name is Wendy and her and her family have been struggling to make ends meet since this summer.

    Michelle, 12/18/2014
  10. I pray that Jesus will help me get rid of all idols and anything that does not have His blessing. This includes sexual sin and shame, gluttony and greed, and excess spending and material goods.

    I humbly ask God to protect me from sin and to protect everyone in my family from sexual sin--including my own father IT who will be alone. God please protect me and my father especially while he is alone.

    Please grant my entire family safety in our travels. Especially women and children.

  13. Lord, please help us in our financial needs. Please help my husband to be promoted. As what he and his boss talked previously, he will be promoted once there is vacancy. Now, the position will be vacant because of the resignation of his colleague. All his other colleagues are telling that he will be promoted but the boss is not calling him yet. Lord, please touch the heart of the boss and promote my husband. We need his promotion very badly for our family. Give my husband strength, encouragement and hope. I am asking this through your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.

    Terry, 12/18/2014
  14. I have been looking for a job and praying from the bottom of my heart to get one. I recently was interviewed for a job I truly like but haven\'t heard back from it. I want to remain faithful and find confort in prayer. I\'m asking God to grant me this blessing. I have been battling with depression and anxiety because of my unemployment but lately I have felt a lot better, as if God was taking care of me. I don\'t want these feelings to come back as I become more desperate and impatient about the job. Please pray that I get this job as I know this will bring peace to my heart and bring back my mental health. In God I trust.

    Carlos, 12/18/2014
  15. Novena of Confidence to the Sacred Heart O LORD JESUS CHRIST:
    To your most Sacred Heart, I confide this intention (mention your request): Lord, I am asking You to bring C. back into my home for Christmas and I am in her heart. Thank You
    Only look upon me, And then do what your Sacred Heart inspires. Let your Sacred Heart decide; I count on it, I trust in it; I throw myself on Your mercy, Lord Jesus! You will not fail me. You are always here for me! Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in You. Sacred Heart of Jesus, I believe in Your Love for me. Sacred Heart of Jesus, Your Kingdom come. O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I have asked You for many favors, But I earnestly implore this one. Please take it and Thank You. Place it in Your own open, broken, beautiful Heart; And, when the Eternal Father looks upon It, Covered with Your Precious Blood, He will not refuse it. It will no longer be my prayer, But Yours, O Lord Jesus Christ. O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in You. Let me not be disappointed. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen
    Say this prayer for 3 days, promise publication & your favor will be granted. Never known to fail. Amen

  17. I\'m requesting prayer for peace and to get all my belongings.

    I\'m an American, a veteran of the US Army. I\'m originally from Benin (West Africa). I\'ve been persecuted by people using witchcraft and violence to terrorize me and other people. They manipulate people everywhere I\'ve been in my life to do harm to me and destroy all aspects of my life. They killed my wife, my mother, and other relatives. Wright now, I\'m not working because 24hrs of every day, they bother me in darkness by singing and say all kinds
    of bullies. Please, pray our Lady of Perpetual Help for us so that Her Son, our Savior Jesus-Christ frees us from the wickedness of these people by the
    golden arrows of His Precious and Holy Face we adore every day and His Holy Death!

  13. Hi. I am 19 and next Monday (Dec. 22nd 2014) I will be taking the Accuplacer test for the 4th time. It is for college for PSEO. If I pass I get more options towards classes. There is a certain score you need to pass. I Know I can reach that score but I get anxious and really nervous which causes me to fail. I go back and forth between \"I can pass it\" and \"I don\'t know if I can take it again mentally\" But if I don\'t pass I only have a few options for free classes or I will have to start paying for classes which I can\'t afford. Either way I don\'t know what to take but if I pass at least I\'ll have more choices. Pray for me for when I take it?
