  2. Please Lord, grant me a recovery from this illness. I have never been so sick and for so long. Please, grant me the ability to recover from this illness. Please, allow it to be something that will and can go away like Lymes. Please, keep cancer and the other dreaded diseases that they are testing for away from me. Please, allow me to be vital, loving, and meaning in this phase of life. I want to love, marry, and have inpact on the world. Being sickly, will merely be a waste of what I can bring to the world. I will commit myself to take care of others, if you give me the chance. I hope to rejoice with rejuvenation. and use my talents to heal others.

  3. I have a boyfriend who doesn't like to come to church. He told me the only reason he would go is for me and to make me happy. But I would really like to get him to actually want to go for god, and not because I want him to, but because he would want to. His child hood is so sad. His parents put him up for adoption and his grandma raised him and his brothers so they wouldn't get separated. There housing was terrible and barely suitable to live in. One of his brothers doesn't believe in god. I think my boyfriend Jesse is confused about his beliefs and doesnt know what to believe in or what's right. I would really like to get him to go to RCIA, but Idk how to approach the topic. I would really want him to get Into the catholic religion. My family is all catholic, and I just can't be with someone who doesn't take their faith seriously. So I would really like some prayers to let me encourage Jesse, and to let him consider going to RCIA. Because I think he needs this, and I think I was put in his life to push him deep in the faith. I just don't know how, or where to even start.

  13. Miracles for a dear friend/sisters, my family, friends ,and I. God knows about it all. The criminal stalking stuff , false judgment, list so long. May she/ they see and understand to look and not judge what they know nothing of. Maybe look for their own forgiveness and salvation for their sins/crimes. No jealousy here ,just love and prayers. For so long and even still now nothing but love remains...especially for my girls. May God give her and I our time to speak face to face in the love, peace, and light of Jesus Christ. May she know how much she is truly loved by all and how much we are praying for her and everyone's health and healing of body, mind, and spirit. May she know just how special she is and Always will be...Praying that I may be able to help her and us through this hell on earth she, our families, and I have been put through by Satan and how GOD AND HS, Mama Mary have been there for us and still are. I ask that Jesus touches her heart and fills it with his healing hands and returns to us both the power of his beautiful love, peace, love, and light...forever♡. God's peace, grace, and mercy be with us all. Nothing but love remains forever♡

So this is what I've been through from past years , a relationship of 4 years that was dear to me came to an end I trusted God's plans for me though. Then I started failing at my engineering subject's I dint loose heart then I got a year out form college , I had never ever failed in a single subject throughout 20 years . so after getting year out I sat at home and studied and gave my exams I failed again. My family said I wasnt fit for engineering and I should drop my studies nobody knew what I had been through. I always wanted to be an engineer I want to make my parents proud someday I wish one day I'd get a very good job and I could spend on them even if it is buying a pair of clothes for them. So now after failing I've again given my exams and today in a few hours my results will be out I want you to please pray for me that I pass please your prayers might help me not to put an end to my career before it has even started. Because if two or more pray for a cause then that prayer will be answered. I do not know you but yes I pray God bless your prayers too.tc

  3. Heavenly Father,
    I come to you today in thanksgiving for all the blessings you have bestowed on me and my family and for all that You continue to bestow on us.

    Today I ask that You send Your guardian angles to surround us. Lord we are going about our lives and there are idle people seeking to do us harm and trying to intimidate us.

    I ask You, Lord, to strengthen our faith in You. Let us walk in confidence and without fear.

    Any evil plans and traps made against us, destroy them Lord.

    Reveal those evildoers and their wickedness. Every wicked plan, destroy it before it can negatively affect us.

    Protect us from the wrath of jealous and envious people.

    And Lord through it all, don't let us become like our enemies. Heal our wounds and our hearts so that we forgive and move on with our lives.Do not let us reflect that hatred and jealousy that we have experienced from others.

    Give us peace of body, mind, soul and spirit. And let us always show love in a world that may be filled with a lot of hate. Let us stand up for what is right and continue to treat people with love no matter where they are from.

    Lord help us to live our lives to the fullest, appreciating all the experiences, good or bad. And by our actions let us show the world that a wounded heart is still capable of love.

    In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
