  5. Please pray for my sister, Anita, who lives several thousand miles from any family and has lost her job. She has no money for her rent, very little gas to look for another job, very little food or money to pay any of her bills. Please pray for her to quickly find another job so she can see and feel the hand of God working in her life for her. May God help her by lifting her burdens off her shoulders and getting her out of the financial ruin that she is suddenly in. May she trust in God to deliver the job to her that meets His needs for her to have. May she trust in God to direct her. Thank you God for taking care of all of her needs, for protecting her and for keeping her safe. Thank you God for providing her with the job that you want her to have and that will bring many blessings to her and to her life. Father, I pray for Your forgiveness for any sin that is keeping her from having a secure job and life. Thank you for your prayers for her. Blessings to all.

  23. Prayer to the Heart of Jesus

    O Jesus, we know you are gentle and that you gave your Heart for us. It was crowned with thorns through our sins. We know that even today you are praying for us so that we willnot be lost. Jesus, remember us when we fall into sin.
    Through your most Sacred Heart, make us all love one another. Cause hatred to disappear among men. Show us your love. We all love you and we want you to protect us with your Heart of the Good Shepherd. Come into each heart, Jesus! Knock at the door of our hearts. Be patient and persistent with us. We are still closed up in ourselves because we have not understood your will. Knock continuously, O Jesus, make our hearts open to you, at least in remembering the Passion you have suffered for us.
