Prayer Requests

Praying Hands with Rosary Beads and Dove --- Image by © JJamArt/Corbis

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.

    I would like to ask for prayers today for strength and faith as I complete my retreat for Marian Consecration. At mass on this Feast day of Our Lady of Lourdes, I will consecrate myself to Jesus through our Mother Mary, our Immaculate Mother. I ask for her powerful intercession for you all, and the whole world.

    Totus Tuus

    Prayers needed for my niece and her family.. There 14 year old daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 2. This is her first year at this Catholic H.S.. She must test her blood and must go to the nurse during the day… She has been testing her blood, ever since she was capable of doing this…. She sometimes becomes depressed..
    On several occasions, while the school nurse was testing the blood, her count was very high.. She kept saying to my grand niece, this is ridiculous, something must be done… Evidently there are things that go on in the course of a day at school, that may cause her to have a high reading..
    This nurse notified the child protective agency, and the families endocrinologist, and stated she thought this young lady was being abused.. There are 2 other siblings and her sister is a grade ahead at the same school.
    The family is very upset, and they do need prayers. Because the government is involved, they may need a lawyer to resolve this….. Please pray for this family.

    I’m asking for prayers regarding some financial situations that my husband and I are currently struggling with. We have to pay rent late this month so please pray that our landlords will be merciful. Secondly, we have incurred some business losses and my husband must return some machinery. They might go after us legally, please pray for protection. These last years have been such a struggle for us. I feel like we’re constantly being attacked in this way. I just want to be able to move forward for once.
    Thank you

    Please pray for a freshman at UCSB who took her life yesterday. She was in the same dorm hall as my granddaughter. All the students are shook.

    Dear Lord we pray for this lonely soul who became so despondent that she took her own life. We pray for her poor family who will suffer forever this great loss. We pray that all Your children will realize that life will always be empty without God in their mist. You wait patiently for Your children, may they all run into Your protective arms. Amen.

    Although I don’t always post to the prayer request thread, I read all of the prayer intentions and offer up a prayer for that intention as I read it. I will also take all of these intentions and TNRS community with me to adoration this afternoon.

    I have also joined the Nineveh 90 Community and I am glad to see others have done as well. God bless you all and keep you every day. I love this community!

    I really thank you for your prayers. The lord has guided me with more wisdom in these days.
    In Jan of 2017 when I visited this tenant I observed there is an unlicensed activity being carried out in the office, which the tenant was not so openly ready to discuss and told me it is officially licensed. Instead of the graphic designing and video capturing, this tenant has opened a healthcare for his wife which is not legally permitted.

    But something withing me was asking me to talk and investigate more. I prayed and asked the lord to take me to the right people to further investigate this.

    I was discussing the real estate to help me out, they informed me to complain to the government authorities. With great courage I did this yesterday and managed to meet the head of the department who was kind to talk to me and informed me to give the license details and he informed me that he would keep it confidential and would do a surprise inspection of the office and the tenant can be fined if it is not a licensed activity.

    Me and my fly are praying that this tenant leaves on his own without any legal action, although I do have reasons but honestly I am not ok financially to pay for any legal fees, also he is a christian I want him to just leave the premises without creating any further issues.

    Please pray that the tenant vacates the office soon enough and I can then rent this for a higher value to help me cover my monthly payments.

    Thank you lord, I praise you for guiding my steps and helping me move in the direction.
    You are all worthy of praise!

    Thanks for your prayers, lord is revealing things each day!

    Yesterday, I discovered from the authorities that there is an activity which is unlicensed and will be penalized for 4 possible violations. The system unfortunately is down, so I have been asked to check after 4 days for an official report.

    Something which I did not expect really has eventually happened, the tenant without my knowledge has been using the office premises to carry out non licensed activities and when questioned they lied to me saying its all official.

    I seriously want this tenant to leave so that I can find someone else to replace them and helps me to pay my mortgage and expenses.Please keep praying!!

    If it had to continued, this would have got me into trouble with authorities and also my expense payments were not completely coming in. The lord opened my eyes at the right time.
    Thank you lord! Praise be to Jesus and God the Father in heaven. Holy spirit thank you for guiding me!!

    I just wanted to ask for prayers today. I have a job interview in an hour. It is a special interview. I have a special history with the company which involved an incident where I almost lost my job about 5 or 6 years ago. I have worked very hard to get to this point and I have a very unique set of skills for it. My prayer intention, is that no matter the outcome, that it be God’s will. Through everything, even the bad times, I have come to see Him working in the background. I pray that whatever He has planned come to fruition. I ask you to say a small prayer for the same. Thank you.

    Support for Persecuted Christians: That persecuted Christians may be supported by the prayers and material help of the whole Church.


    O Cross of Christ, today too we see you raised up in our sisters and brothers killed, burned alive, throats slit and decapitated by barbarous blades amid cowardly silence.
    O Cross of Christ, today too we see you in the faces of children, of women and people, worn out and fearful, who flee from war and violence and who often only find death and many Pilates who wash their hands.
    O Cross of Christ, today too we see you in those who wish to remove you from public places and exclude you from public life, in the name of a pagan laicism or that equality you yourself taught us.
    O Cross of Christ, today too we see you in those persecuted for their faith who, amid their suffering, continue to offer an authentic witness to Jesus and the Gospel.
    O Cross of Christ, teach us that the rising of the sun is more powerful than the darkness of night. O Cross of Christ, teach us that the apparent victory of evil vanishes before the empty tomb and before the certainty of the Resurrection and the love of God which nothing can defeat, obscure or weaken. Amen! [Pope Francis on Good Friday, 2016]
