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 am humbly asking you to pray for my sis Cathy, and her family.

    She has mysterious ailments and I know that God can heal her with a blink of His eyes,a touch of the breeze as He passes, or just the words,
    that she is healed.
    God alone is the Healer. I ask that He guides her doctors and' that they find nothing there, for I believe that God works miracles.
    God knows what I ask with a sincere heart.
    God knows the needs of her family.
    Thank you God for hearing my prayers.
    Thank you for all the prayers for Cathy.

    Pat, 9/20/2016
  23. Please pray for my mother. She is terminally ill with lung cancer and she is progressively getting worse each day. My father wants her to put her complete faith in God to heal her and not rely upon hospice nurses or medication to ease her pain and suffering. He will not listen to reason and believes that I don't have enough faith in God either. He is of the Pentecostal Holiness faith. I am going through RCIA at my local parish. He is adamantly against my conversion process. He believes that my mother, he and I can change the mind of God by the amount of faith we have so that she can be divinely healed. In summary, my Dad needs prayer for peace of mind. My Mom needs prayer to either be healed or pass on as peaceably as possible. I need prayer. I, along with my Dad, am her caregiver. I quit my job to take care of her. My Dad and I are at odds with one another almost on a daily basis over the best care for my Mom. I surrender it all to God. It is God's will whether she lives or dies. Please keep us in your prayers. Thank you!

    Michael , 9/20/2016
  2. Please please pray for me. I have a history of depression and again been really low place for the past six months. I have many things that bring stress and I am constantly in fear of losing the little I have. My only family are my brother and father who are having serious health issues. The support they can offer,but material or emotional, is very limited and I feel like I should be there for them. Meanwhile I should finish my studies (I am an adult learner), find a job and sort out my finances that are abysmal. I have no friends. People in my age have families of their own and careers. I feel like my life is so far behind, I have lost my courage during these years due to the depression and serious set backs. I feel like I am being punished and that I am a magnet for bad luck not only to myself but also my closest ones.
    I feel so forgotten.And I am losing hope that things will get better. I so wish that God would have a plan for me too. I want to do something meaningful with my life.Right now I wish that God would grant me a partner to lean on and help me build a life together. I feel like I am wasting my days by just trying to survive. I am empty and scared and would love to feel joy and optimism. I have tried to open myself but I just don't get the opportunities or meet right people. I don't know what to do anymore by myself. I just know that I want fuller life but without God's real guidance and tangible help I can not reach it.

  15. To Our Lady of Perpetual Help, joined by Lord Jesus Christ:

    I am very much thankful because I will be taking Board Licensure Examination for Professional Teachers this coming 25th of September, after a year of failing to make it to requirements deadlines, great load of work-related stress on the last quarter of 2015 and forced to look for another company to work for. I am thankful that, despite the turmoils I have experienced this year, I am now a regular employee of a company I am currently working with, and I am enjoying MORE what I can enjoy both in work as well as in review center where I am attending.

    I am currently focusing, and looking forward for the Board Licensure Examination for Professional Teachers this coming 25th of September. On that day, which is Sunday, please be with me, send forth your angels and holy spirit to help me effectively retrieve the stock knowledge I have, prevent my brain from becoming too weary to think and analyze and most of all, HELP ME TO FIND THE BEST ANSWER IN ORDER TO PASS THE SAID EXAMINATION, AND BE ONE OF THE TOP 20, at least on that day of the examination.

    That does not end there, though, because the results of Board Licensure Examination for Professional Teachers will be released 30 working days after 25th of September. In Jesus' Name, my name should appear as one of the passers of Board Licensure Examination for Professional Teachers and be one of the top-notchers.
