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. Pray For Me, My Disability Retirement Was Denied And I Need To Appeal
    I don't know where to even start or how it what to do. I need wisdom, guidance, and the right attorney who can and will help me with this without charging me too much. I stopped working over 4 years ago and started the process of applying for Disability retirement. it has been an uphill battle with a giant, the retirement association. This is not social security Disability this is through my retirement at work. For years I paid into my retirement as a public service employee Those benefits included disability retirement which is retirement paid early if employee becomes disabled and unable to work. I already have social security disability but that is only a fraction of what my income was and I paid into my retirement and irs taken over 4 years and now they denied me for not appearing to the hearing but I read and reread letter and don't see or understand where I was required to attend. the letter to me seemed more informational of the hearing taking place. everytime and anytime I have called association to ask anything I am always told "u can't answer that" please please pray that God will help me through and this and for God's favor in this. Also for the right attorney

  8. Dear God, please protect my family that are being harmed and bullied right now just like they did back in 2010 when they forced me to give up custody of my son so that they can push me around in to doing things for them. I'm very tired and stressed most of the day that I can barely function. Sometimes my family talks straight at me and I dont even notice. I've been praying in sites everywhere hoping that people would help me pray so that I have a better chance of being heard because I'm desperate. They say they will start hurting us again in a week simply because we try and make a living to get by and not the way they want us to do so. I pray for you to help my family even if you can't help me.

  19. I have been wrongly accused of seven criminal offences for which I am to stand trial for from 5th December 2016 to 16 December 2016 in Guildford, UK.
    I became a Catholic in the summer of 2016 and these alleged offences are have said to occurred in 2014 to 2015. I am found guilty I would go to prison, leaving behind an extremely supportive wife. These are extremely serious offences and although perhaps I have been a bit foolish and have not broken the law or ever intended to.
    Please pray for me and my wife Monica, that I am acquitted of these allegations and found not guilty at court. Help me in your prayers that the Lord will guide me and grant me intersessions during this time, so that I am able to find the correct things to say and do and remain strong, brave, resilient and focussed.
    Thank you and God Bless you all / Dios Bendiga!!!
