  5. Thank You Lord for the good news we just received about the home we are in the process of buying. This news comes as such an answer to my prayers. I had been so worried that my financial problems would mess things up for us. The thought of waiting months to hear back, all the while wondering and stressing was unbearable. It was taking such a toll on me. I turned in prayer to You Lord and the news today has lifted a huge weight from my mind. Thank You Lord. I will continue to do the work I need to do, knowing that You are guiding me. It is such a comfort knowing You are always with me. Amen.

I ask that you bless Anthony and myself with the knowledge and humbleness to do your work here on earth. May we continue to grow in love for you dear Lord and for one another as a Catholic couple. Bless us now during our new road to a new journey of life together now that Anthony has gotten a new home for us. I ask for forgiveness of sins and may start this path together and make you proud. Kindly bless us to make the right decisions and create a beautiful home for one another.

    I also ask that you bless my mother who is in a severe depression and is not well mentally and some physically. We are not on good terms and have deep anger towards eachother. May you bless us to be loving and cordial to eachother. And if it should mean that we are no longer in one another's lives in the future, then I am at a point to accept that. I am ready to start me life and be a happy adult.

    Kindly bless her heart, mind and body.

  1. I have been trying to figure out why I am feeling / acting the way I have been, I have come to the conclusion that I am broken , I am over reacting, worrying about everything and trying to take care of everybody , and getting overwhelmed, Matthew 7:3-5 came to mind. When something happens I am always looking / waiting for the worst to happen. I know that I have let the negativity that is around me overcome my mind and harden my heart. Not sure how to FIX this. I now realize that God has been trying to use things that have happened to get to me and now he is using sickness on the closest objects in my life wife and Zoie my dog to break me. I need to do something before he takes them from me for not listening to him.

  9. Dear God,

    I am truly, sincerely, incredibly sorry for every sin that I have done, for failing You and everyone around me. I am so sorry for abusing people's trusts sometimes. I understand I may have manipulated people at times to work to my advantage. Please forgive me for everything.

    Thank you so much for every little thing You have given me in my life. I live everyday being truly grateful for everything that I have. I am just sorry again for not being able to control myself enough and let go of painful things that I should have forgotten.

    Please help me, with Your will, to find a permanent job with a high paying salary. I also wish to win the lottery. I really want to pay off all of my mortgages, loans, bills, support myself, my family and live life comfortably again.

    Please give me the strength to be pure, innocent, honest and forgiving like You. Please give me the wisdom to differentiate what is right and what is wrong. Please give me Holy Spirit to guide me to do the right things all the time. I do not want to sin again and forgive me Lord for making You cry again.

    I ask this humbly in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour.

Please Dear Lord the stress is too much. Amen

  22. Please pray for my marriage. My husband doesn't love me any more and wants a divorce

    Michelle, 1/4/2017
  23. My Son and his wife have a young child. We just found out that they have been in counseling because his wife says she no longer has feeling for my Son. He is absolutely heartbroken. She says she's been praying and "God is directing her to end her marriage" but that's not God!! Until now she has always been very devout. Honestly, I think between a new baby, both working full time, money is tight she is confused, exhausted and maybe depressed. She refuses to continue to see this (Catholic) counselor or talk to their Priest. I'm so worried for all three of them and I don't know what to do or say. Pleas pray for them.

    Mary, 1/4/2017
