  2. I need your prayers. I am worried, I can't help but wonder if the poor workmanship is deliberate. Keith will not leave our house despite my husband asking him to repeatedly. I am scared of further damage to our new house. Sadly, Roy and Keith continue to deliver poor workmanship, my home renovation has been a trying journey of poor workmanship from VanHus. And unfortunately, it appears they are now bothering our new neighbours too. I am sad whenever I think of the renovation. Could I trouble you all to pray for me sometimes, please? - Mrs JohnB, Singapore

    Mrs JohnB, 5/6/2015
  3. I continue to ask for your prayers. I feel so heart broken and afraid that my ex bf of 13 years might be married and I pray he's not. I ask for your prayers that we finally start talking again and we fall in love with each other all over again. I pray that he realizes that we do belong together and we spend the rest of our lives together. I ask for your prayers that his mother convinces him to get back with me since Ive only loved him and respected him. I hope she understands that I never hurt him and my intentions were always pure. Please let TZ realize that we belong together and please let us break the evil snares that other people has caused us to separate. please pray for us and let us talk about marriage like we did before this girl came between us whom is no longer in the picture...

    Please pray he's not married... Please for this is what is breaking my heart... In Jesus name I pray...

  22. Please pray for my daughter who recently informed us of her childhood sexual molestation by her paternal grandfather. My daughter is 33 and has a 1 year old daughter and is struggling with issues triggered by innocent situations that involve her daughter. She has an unforgiving heart and deep hatred for her grandfather and is reluctant to seek help at this time. She has other issues that developed over time to compensate for the past abuse and has turned from the Church where she received all the sacraments (excluding marriage in the Church). She is hesitating getting her child Baptized and needs prayers for the healing of her soul. Please pray that the Holy Spirit will overflow her heart with the longing for communion with our precious Lord through Mass and the Holy Eucharist. May she learn to open her heart to forgive as God forgives us and that she be free from the childhood burdens that have haunted her all these years. Thank you!

  25. I am Smita Khalkho, 23 year old. Pursuing my higher education. An year back i came into a relationship with a person ,who got married to some other girl on the next month only .It made me completely broken. I was so deeply in love with him that i couldn't handle myself from falling down. I tried a lot pulling myself away from that situation but i couldn't. Later I started meeting very often because the person also realized that he did a mistake, we knew that we are doing wrong with each other and also with the society, but everyday we tried ending it all, tried many possible thing we could do but we failed, being with him and knowing the fact he is married to someone else and i am not able to get out it and move ahead in my life made me more broken and sad. Everyday i felt like i am dying , everyday i felt so exhausted, anger, sadness, agony, anxiety, fear everything. It completely changed me, i totally left my focus from my carrier my life my family. I was so devastated and filled with all the pain that i even tried many times killing myself , by this time i got addicted to cigarette and still i am . I just finish smoking up packets everyday, i do know that its going to harm my body but i just feel helpless. Its been an year that i am trying to pull myself and move ahead in my life but still i am not able to and all those pain are still inside me killing me everyday, on every 3-4 day of a week i feel like killing myself, i also trying committing suicide a lot of time. I just feel like i am just a flesh of meat and there is nothing else. I called out the name of Jesus Christ many times but i feel he isn't listened my cry. I am dying everyday and just breathing in and out to survive. lost all the hopes of life and also forgot the meaning of happiness. One day i found a guy , i felt a little happiness , we started talking and things started becoming serious between us, i thought he is a nice guy i can move ahead my life with him , he was also genuine with his words, but then when my sorrow just started ending and i found the hope n trust that person just disappeared suddenly, without leaving any message. From that day i am just trying to get just an answer from him but still i am unknown with the reason. A little hope came , when i actually started living my life after such a long time of pain,it just went of suddenly with a question mark. Now this has broken me so much that i can never get over to this, i have just one single expectation which is an answer , the reason why did he went away like this and a little peace .

  9. Dear God I come before you to give you thanks and praise. I worship all that is given to me and then I lost it. My family who has abandoned me my daughter who has taken my granddaughter away and sent her away. We haven't seen her for four months. It pains me to fight justice against my own daughter which you know that it had to be done. I feared for my granddaughters life. My God all I ever wanted was to help this child to become better and to teach good things. I never wanted what has happened to us all. So much hate jealously and sadness. I ask of you to please help us to love you and one another. Let my daughter know I was helping her not destroying her. She should know that if I was I would lose everything like I did now. After all these months you taught me to better myself you gave me strength and courage to move forward but not forgetting. You showed there's a better way to handle such hardship that lays in front of us each day. I come to you with love and understanding that we make it through each day. Bless those who are in need of your worship love peace sickness hunger and who are in great devastation that they come to you for your help.

He is no longer with her but the evil is still there.

Please help pray for him to add me to his social page and for us to start talking again. Please pray that my words to him help him fall back in love with each other... For I miss him so much.
