On this page, readers are invited to send in their prayer requests. I will leave requests up for nine days. All readers are invited to pray for those who ask for it and any who want to offer a word of comfort are invited to do so, as well. May we work together to mutually build each other up and support each other in times of trial.

    Requesting urgent prayers today for a loved one in ongoing turmoil who is currently in a particularly bad situation. I’m praying for resolution in keeping with God’s Holy Will through the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the intercession of St Maximilian Kolbe and St. Philomena. Thank you in advance for your prayers!

    My son-in-law completed his six months of chemo. He will have a PET Scan tomorrow to see if the tumor is gone. If not, they will start radiation. He is so compromised right now……looks like he has been dragged under a truck–literally. I pray that his scan is clear and he can return to good health and then back to work. January 1st his disability ends and his healthcare. My daughter will be able to cover the family under her employment tho. They’re really getting behind the “eight ball” financially……it’s a huge trial for all of them. Praying that they turn to Our Lord for help.

    The prayer to find my cousin was answered big-time. My daughter and I spent several hours with her today. I haven’t seen her since she converted to Islam. Our daughters (ages 13 and 16) met for the first time and they are both thrilled. We already have plans to get together again in a few weeks when my son comes home from college. Many doors were opened. One step at a time, I know. But so far, so very, very good.

    Dear Charlie,
    dear friends of the Next Right Step,
    a little more than a week ago, I posted a prayer request lamenting the worsening of my health conditions, plus a deep feeling of frustration and disappointment for various longstanding problems that have remained unresolved, in spite of years of prayers and of many other attempts at solving them.

    Though the problems remain, your answers have deeply touched me, in fact I am late in answering and expressing my gratitude, because I wished to devote proper time to responding.

    I’m most grateful for all your various Prayers, Chaplets and Prayers of Miraculous Trust.
    Thanks to Charlie, Beckita, Kati, Audiemarie and JillMarie, who suggested the Surrender Novena: I started it on Thursday 22nd, out of trust in you.
    And, Beckita, yes, I know that Father Dolindo Ruotolo was Italian ;)! Thanks for reminding me.

    To Kati: thank you for suggesting the Sacrament of the Sick. I will try to ask my parish priest, though, when I asked it for my son, who was having recurrent nocturnal epilepsy crisis, he discouraged me and I never asked again. Thanks God, my son is better, though we have no certainty that the crisis won’t come again. My priest is quite pragmatic, does not believe in easy miracles or miraculous rites, healing prayers, visionaries, etc… anyway, I’ll send him a message on his phone and let’s see what he says.

    To Jill Marie: thanks for sharing your life experiences and for writing such a consolatory message, I’ll try to follow your suggestions.

    To Mick: how about your Italian? Was praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet in a foreign language difficult? Next time I want a video as a proof…;)! Thanks so much for everything, you have a great sense of humor…

    To Janet: learning to sing has always been one of my wishes, but one which I never followed, so when I read “you will be singing soon”, I smiled. Thanks for your prayers.

    To Carmel: thanks for your prayers and for suggesting the Betrayal Series by Dr. Tom. I browsed the internet and it seems the program this doctor suggests is interesting. I’m seriously evaluating to buy the series or the book.

    To Kat3116: thanks for praying to St. Jude and to Saint Raphael. They are among my favorite intercessors.
    Jlynnbyrd, you are very kind; yes, autumn and winter days can be sad, I hate when we change the hour at the end of October, here in Italy, and loose one hour of light in one day. Today it is cold, but sunny, a very beautiful day. Thanks for your prayers and have a good winter season.

    Thanks, Lordprotectyourlittlemess, just the name is cute! I appreciated your prayers.

    And last, but not least, thanks to The Phoenix, I’m praying for your new job too. Right now my brother is in Switzerland for a training course, hoping a position might ensue; he also has had an interview in Como and there’s a position open in Milan too, they are choosing a candidate within January. But, as you know, it takes a lot of time and patience and many disappointments are ensured as well.

    I hope I haven’t forgotten anyone, if so, I apologize.
    Thank you and best wishes from my heart to all of you.
    Lilia

  13. I would like to ask for prayers for myself. I have been diagnosed with chronic fatigue. I am going to need to learn patience with my lack of energy, which isn’t easy for my type A personality. It came on gradually over the last year and was part of my reason for retiring a month ago. I guess I will have to spend more time “resting in the Lord🙂.”

    Dear NRS family, please pray for a young girl~15~ who has breast cancer. Her name is Maria. My son Joseph told me about it this morning, he had been crying about it all night. I guess things really are ratcheting up, I am overwhelmed with all the discord and sad news. Please Mary my mother, cover us all with your holy mantle. Jesus I trust in Thee.

    After I injured my foot in February I joked that one should be careful what they ask for. When I prayed for more focus, I was literally knocked of my feet for going on 11 months now. There have been many blessings as a result. I have a new appreciation for many things that may have otherwise gone unnoticed. ❤

    Just wanted everyone to know…..my son-in-law finished his Chemo and had a PET Scan which showed the tumor was gone. He doesn’t have to have radiation. They will take another Scan in a month to see if he’s still clear. For now, he is in remission.

    Thank you everyone for your support and prayers. Thank you Jesus, Saint Joseph and Mother Mary.

    I am a poor beggar for prayers……I am so joyful to have the TNRS prayer warriors to help me interceed for those in desperate need…….
    Baby Isabella (2 months old) just had her skull “unfused” so her brain could have the proper space. She’s in ICU right now and seems to be coming along. But now the doctors have found that she has a narrow Larynx, that may require more surgery. Her Mum, Father and 3 brothers are overwhelmed on so many fronts. Please pray for Isabella’s complete healing, the family’s financial crisis and that support from volunteers continues. (Isabella is one of our (Gabriel Project) babies saved from Abortion)

    Thank you all! God Bless.

    Thank you to all of you who have been praying for my son, my grandkids and family. The Lord has taken care of everything. I am at a loss for words… how He took care of each person, each situation was, in my opinion, miraculous and without your prayers would not have gone so smoothly or happened so quickly. I truly dug my heels in, expecting years of battling through all of this. It was so exhausting. Something so complicated was undone in just a few moments at the very last second.. and the innocent were protected, spared, and saved from misery.
    I pray that God will greatly bless each one of you, and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
    To Charlie and YD- you can’t begin to know what you’ve done for me. I am sure I could not have held steady without your help and prayers..without the prayers of all here. 💔

    Please pray for my neighbor Charlie who never returned from a trip to Home Depot last night. He is very weak having battled undiagnosed debilitating medical issues for some time. He’s a man of faith often attending daily mass. I just learned that he occasionally hinted at taking his life due to his failing health. Please also pray for his distraught wife and son. So grateful for your prayers. Jill

    Nancy- I work in a hospital too. I am a pharmacist, so I am not physically at the bedside usually, though I do respond to some code blue calls. The fallout of one really sick patient takes the “whole village” as they say and the work flow of a usually calm environment can move to chaos quickly, especially if a premature baby is in emergent need. So, here is what I have come up with for me, and I hope it can help. On my way into work, I offer all of that shift to God for the care of the patients I am “touching”. Usually for me, that is the click of a verify button on the computer as I evaluate each medication prior to it being released. I have asked God that that click is a prayer for that person. I ask God that each time I sign my name on a paper, or initial off on an IV bag that is going upstairs, that is a prayer for the person receiving it. I don’t usually put CONSTANT thought into it in the heat of the moment. It comes and goes as the day goes, but always on the way in, I offer it all. I again will reflect as I am walking out of work, and offer the days work to Him for each patient in the hospital (weather I interacted with him/her or not). Now, on occasion, they will release an END of LIFE order set, and I know that either that person will soon pass on or he/she is heading to hospice. I don’t usually have time to say a whole Divine Mercy Chaplet, but I can usually get one 10-pack :>} said while I am verifying those orders. I hope this help you. I know since I have consistently asked God to let each ‘CLICK’ of my verify button be a prayer to Him, I have meditated more on each of those people in the bed, understanding more they are part of a family, a son or daughter of our Abba.
    God Bless,
    Sandy
