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. I thank our Lord for answering my prayers. I need more patience and understanding to accept my brothers who cause trouble in our family. I pray that God will strengthen my faith for me to love and forgive those who hurt us. Amen

    Beth, 5/11/2015
  2. dear god,
    Please help my brother fight through the battles that he is going through and to get help for his mental illnesses. Throughout the years he has been getting better and than getting much much worse. And right now is the worst he's ever been, he screams at the top of his lungs at night and breaks things. He broke the head of off my moms mother mary statue, he is classified as skitsofrantic but my mother won't do anything to help him, she thinks giving him money and babying him will fix everything. He doesn't talk to me or my sibling, when we try to talk to him he says one word or nothing or he says it in a whisper so we won't understand him. I have seen him when he is at his worst and it scares me, he used to never be like this, I want my brother to be healthy and to maybe have kids one day or be a priest and for my mother not to be in denial. Dear god and whoever is reading this please pray for him I just want my brother to be normal again

  10. Dear Lord, I thank You for all the blessings that my family and I have been receiving from You everyday of our lives. Thank You for making us healthy always, free from pain generally and safe from any harm. Forgive me of my transgressions and ask You to make me strong enough to resist everyday temptations. Lord Jesus, be our guide in all our undertakings especially in our new tutorial business which we have just started. My husband and I want this business to be a legacy to our children so we pray that You give us plenty of regular clients so we could sustain its existence, earn enough to carry us through living comfortably and most of all, so we could be of service to parents and children needing assistance in school. Please will that this business grow very soon. We also ask You dear God our Father to give us a happy, safe and trouble-free HK trip which we had long planned for our daughter, J's debut, in June. We hope that this bonding activity we have arranged for June 2-5 make us closer and more caring to each other and as a family. I sincerely pray that the renewed passports of C, B and J. be delivered to us as scheduled, on May 26. I love You, Lord as You are my only hope. Be with me in all that I do, think and say. These, I ask through Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary. AMEN.

  17. For my long lost sister/ friend and family to finally stop stalking me. Find peace love forgiveness or whatever they have to do to stop their evil and be the good people I once thought they were. Grant me peace and understanding of why she/ they would still be doing this to me. I believe somewhere deep down she has a chance of being saved...her kids too. But Satan....oh well too late. Let us talk one day in the peace and love of the real JC! Make her real not fake and evil as her husband please. ..last of my faith. She and I deserved better. May she see all he has been doing for years and understand. ...let her know and feel the good and best of intentions of my heart. May she see and know the damage done and help this heal without anymore hurt. Praying without ceasing till I die for me and my family. Especially the ptsd and sharing this story for healing purposes. May the investigation lead to and end to the criminal activity which done to us for so many years. Please help Janine, Our families, and I.....unbelievable! Peace and healing for my PTSD and depression as well as everyone else's over the obvious stalking, wire tapping, hacking, and long list of evil done by some once good people to God knows how many victims. I believe it's her evil hubby not her....others say differently. I would do anything for her if she would just call and talk to me about what all is up before it's just too late. I have prayed and suffered patiently and with God's love in my heart for her and I and this twisted issue. ..please remove the ice off her heart and give her a warm heart. You know it all Lord. Please help us and make her see it all and know....truly....Love remains still after all this time. Peace be with you all and bless all prayer sites and their good purposes....end evil on this earth forever. Bless the children

  19. I'm praying that both my co worker Noel and I we be able to reconcile with each other. I'm praying both her and I can sit down and have a heart to heart talk and reconcile our differences and solve the issue that has torn us apart as co workers and as friends. I regret taking advantage of her the way I did and it was the biggest mistake I've made my entire life. It's been several months since both her and I have actually spoken to each other. I'm praying that God gives me a sign that she is no longer mad with me and I'm praying that God gives me a sign that she's willing to reconcile with me as well. Right now she's not ready. I do get the sense that she's willing to reconcile with me and I also get the sense she wants to begin speaking to me and that she wants be to begin speaking to her as well. Please continue to pray for the both of us so these wounds of ours can finally begin to heal and that your prayers will touch and soften her heart. I miss having her as my friend too. Thank you.

May the Blessed Mother keep her mantle wrapped around my prayers, that by her intercession she may bring power to them and You may grant them by Your love for her. I lift my sisters and their families. My friends and their families. I lift all those who have asked me to pray for them. I lift the world and all its chaos. Bring us back to You, Lord.

  10. O God our Creator,

    from your provident hand we have received our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
    You have called us as your people and given us the right and the duty to worship you, the only true God, and your Son, Jesus Christ.
    Through the power and working of your Holy Spirit,
    you call us to live out our faith in the midst of the world,
    bringing the light and the saving truth of the Gospel
    to every corner of society.

    We ask you to bless us
    in our vigilance for the gift of religious liberty.
    Give us the strength of mind and heart
    to readily defend our freedoms when they are threatened;
    give us courage in making our voices heard
    on behalf of the rights of your Church
    and the freedom of conscience of all people of faith.

    Grant, we pray, O heavenly Father,
    a clear and united voice to all your sons and daughters
    gathered in your Church
    in this decisive hour in the history of our nation,
    so that, with every trial withstood
    and every danger overcome—
    for the sake of our children, our grandchildren,
    and all who come after us—
    this great land will always be "one nation, under God,
    indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

    We ask this through Christ our Lord. AMEN! In the name of JESUS !!!

    -For salvation for children, grandchildren and everyone and for very urgent special unspoken requests. ( I'm again asking for prayer every day while waiting for God’s

    Living in GOD'S SIGHT, THROUGH THE POWER OF PRAISE FOR THE GREATER GLOR. Blessing to the land of Milk & honey & MAY GOD BLESS THE AMERICA!! Will you stand for religious freedom!!! LU JESUS!!!

  22. Heavenly Father / LORD JESUS, Thank you for your blessing & grace we received for our family. I beg you to resurrect Melissa left eye to 20/20 vision and make the eye disease and inflammation of the optic nerve go away permanently.
    Jesus said, "I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it" (John 14:13, 14).
    I come to you Heavenly Father today and I have confidence in Your Word, and I take hold of Your promises to completely heal my daughter Melissa Ang.
    Please forgive all her sins and remove all obstacles that is preventing her from healing.
    FATHER GOD / JESUS, you are the miracle healer & physician. I believe whatever treatment medication, injection & laser on the eye you have directed the doctor is to resurrect Melissa's left eye 20/20 vision permanently and making the eye disease go away.
    We put our trust and faith with JESUS that Dr Sharel C Ongchin and Russell Van Gelder are doctors that GOD has directed them to diagnose and treat her. We praise GOD and have faith that Melissa's left eye will be completely healed.
    In Jesus name, I pray. Amen!
