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. God our Father, I pray that I could be granted a proper accounting job very soon as I am not able to survive on the 2 odd jobs hours I have now. I am going nuts over the piling debts and am really in a loss. I pray that You would also watch over all others who are having difficulties in their lives now. I give all my trust in You. Pray to you Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

  6. Dear Lord, once again, my daughter has been very rude to me. She was very disrespectful and kicked us ouf of her dorm room. As she got older, she became more alienated and distant to us. All I've become to her is a source of economic help and a maid to attend to her needs. Please teach her the right path. May she be guided in her thoughts, actions, and words. May she have morals and strong spiritual values. May she act respectful and respectable to all. She has been very critical of Catholic faith. I fear that she may be an atheist soon.

    Dear Mother Mary, Mother of Perpetual Help, please pray for us. Pray that my daughter will regard her body as a temple of her soul, remain modest and not cheapen herself. Please pay for us to make God the center of our lives. Plesse pray that we will have good physical, mental and spiritual health.

    In Jesus'name, amen.
