She is thus an inspiration and a symbol of charity to the thousands who ask her intercession. Please grant, Lord, through the prayers of this pure youthful martyr, relief and consolation to all suffering such trials, and especially those for whom we pray. Drew, Ferny, Teedra, Hugo, David, Ricardo, Wes, and Kevin. We beg you, Lord, to hear the prayers of Saint Dymphna on our behalf. Grant all those for whom we pray patience in their sufferings and resignation to your divine will. Please fill them with hope, and grant them the relief and cure they so much desire. We ask this through Christ our Lord who suffered agony in the garden. Amen.

  23. Please pray for my husband Jay, who is under a lot of pressure from his mother. His mother tried to pressure our oldest son (13) to start reading pornography. He refused and told me about it. When I confronted her, she had her husband exclude us from the family (including Jay's grandparents) and tried to make Jay leave us. They are expecting my oldest son to apologize to them and even went so far to come up with a different story, calling my oldest son a liar. Please pray for everybody involved. Jay does not believe in God and also makes nasty comments about us praying and going to church. He calls us holy rollers and is on his mother's side that our oldest son should read such profane material. Please pray for his conversion and that his heart may be opened to God. Thank you!!

  10. Please pray for me. As of sometime last week I got very upset with God. I feel if my prayers, and my services to him and our Mother Mary mean nothing I'm going thru a lot right now and I feel as if he has abandoned me as if he let me down. Just like some of my family did. The more I change to be more positive to be a better person I feel as if it doesn't matter. I receive misery and disgrace. Everything I ask for I either don't get it or I get it and it comes with horrible consequences. I love my God I love serving him and I'm scared because I'm losing hope, I'm losing faith. So I ask you all to please pray, pray so my faith strengthens, pray so may no longer live in misery. I'm scared to ask as I get the opposite or like I said it come with very bad consequences.
    Thank you for your prayers

    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).

    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 us to go to the doctor is to resurrect Melissa's left eye 20/20 vision permanently and making the eye disease go away.
