  9. Lord, I need you now. I feel like I'm being weighted down from my upcoming divorce. I never wanted it. My husband left me and moved in with another woman. It hurts me to see a man I thought I knew, not care about the vows he made with me and You, Lord. It hurts me to see how he doesn't seem to care about his sons well being. Please come into his life and show him that you still will accept him if he want back in your life. I am accepting he is gone from my life and feel that you knew I couldn't survive anymore of his continual neglect and disrespectful ways, not only to me and my son, but to You, especially. Please keep my son and I safe and give us the grace to find our way through this so that we can start appreciating this life that you gave us. We are living for you, Lord and by doing so we will see the beauty in this life that you have given us and one day be able and ready to join you and my precious son and sons brother in heaven. Thank you Lord for everything you have given us, whether it was hard to understand the reasons, I know they are to lead us down a path that guides us to You on the way to our everlasting home. Amen

  14. Glorious Archanger Saint Raphael 
    Great prince of the heavenly court, you are illustrious for your gifts of wisdom and grace. You are a guide of those who journey by land or sea or air, consoler of the afflicted, and refuge of sinners. 
    I beg you assist me in all of my needs and all the sufferings of this life as once you helped the young Tobias on his travels. Because you are the "medicine of God" I humbly pray you to heal the many infirmities of my soul and the ills that afflict my body. I especially ask of you the favor (that Sean and I are the right people for each other, that Sean may be as deeply in love with me as he told me he was, let that love for me be kept alive in him somewhere, keep it safe, let that love be strong enough and different from others enough that it is able to overcome all the negative and hurt we caused each other, intercede and speak to his heart on my behalf like you spoke to Tobias for Sara and bring that love for me back to him, please intercede and bring us back together again someday to spend our lives together let us be blessed again to be together and be bound together in love for our lifetimes guide us by the hand for this and help us to stay together and overcome anything we face, help us to overcome this and let this separation be only temporary) and the great grace of purity to prepare me to be the temple of the Holy Spirit. Amen

  15. Please, pray that it be in accordance to God's will that Sean and I be the right mate for each other and are in love with each other like he told me he was, who God has chosen for each other, continue to be in each others heart, irreplaceable to each other in our hearts and lives, that Sean and I are forgiven by God and each other for not letting our relationship flourish when we were given the chance the first time and any other wrongs or hurts we caused each other, that we over come what is happening now that this break between us be only temporary and we have another chance together and when the time is right for both of us, Sean and I  are guided back to each other to reconcile our relationship and be restored as a couple , let no thing or person in the way to stop it from happening, Healthily, happily, faithfully, and truly in love with each other for both Sean and my lifetimes, with God's help, mercy and blessing upon Sean and I  both for this to all be so in the way I seek, God said man should not be alone,  Please let Sean and I not be lost to each other forever, let this space between us be only temporary,  let Sean and I  walk this earth with each other as partners, let it be right and ordained  for Sean and I  both with each other, and true love for Sean and I both with each other, let all that is broken between Sean and I  be mended and all be overcome even things Sean or I may be doing to block this from happening and let Sean and I be reunited resurrected restored reconciled to each other and be together  for our life times, Please let God touch his heart and mind and show him the truth that we are irreplaceable and guide him back to loving me and guide him back to me.

    Thank you 

      In Jesus name I pray uprightly

     I am truly thankful to God for all I have and have had, I believe in my heart my prayers are also what is right for Sean and I as well, as my heart and soul feel to cry out for them, with God's help and blessing let it all be so.





    Let what seems it may be impossible be possible with you God, let a way be made for this to be right and to happen for Sean and I with each other, show Sean and I how to love each other for our life times give Sean and I both the desire to do so, keep the love Sean and I said we shared alive in Sean's heart, in us, let it be strong and different from others enough to guide Sean and I back to each other, help Sean and I with this. I know You blessed Sean and I greatly with each other and our love for each other, mercifully bless Sean and I this again with each other please. 
    Thank you God, I love You God, I trust You will give us this God, 
    Please God, Amen

  7. Linda is going to a work fair on Saturday 4/23. Please pray for her that is is able to get a job

    Linda, 4/23/2016
  8. I would like to request prayer for myself and a guy who is a like a big brother to me. He's the person that I'm closest too and the relationship I have with him is very special to me. But lately we've been encountering obstacles in our relationship; we live in different countries; he works 70+ hours a week and doesn't have a lot of time to talk with me; we don't get to see each other often. Not only are we are we distant geographically, but I feel we are becoming distant in our friendship. Normally this kind of thing doesn't bother me but this person is very important in my life and I love him so much and his absence in my life really hurts me. We've also had other problems in our relationship. I would like to pray for healing of this relationship. Even though he's not my brother biologically, in my heart he'll always be my big brother. I also pray that our fraternal bond will only become stronger in spite of the geographic distance. He can also use prayer too because he has personal issues going on in his life. His name is Joe.

    Thank you for your prayers and care,

    Pierce, 4/22/2016
