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 pray for all of the requested intentions here. This is a powerful group of faithful who amplify our requests of God, Jesus, and Our Holy Mother.

    I have a request to ask for your prayers for… my 5 year old son had a seizure a month ago (and none since thankfully!) and we are discuss the MRI results with the neurologist today. I pray both to accept the Will of God, but also to ask for healing for whatever caused the seizure.

    Thank you and God bless us all!

    Dearest TNRS Charlie, Beckita, everyone…Please I ask for prayers for my son Frankie and his wife. They’ve been trying to have a baby to no avail, and were just getting ready to adopt and their eye site practice in Collinsville Virginia just burnt down to the ground 2 Sundays ago.. they did have a miracle in that a Bible was in there placed by a Gideon and it did not burn..lt was unscathed, but I spoke with Frankie this morning, and he is very depressed. I’ve never heard him like this before. They are not going to church these days I think so I believe God is working on their faith, but I beg for sincere prayers from you all so that God through Our beautiful Mother will give them the grace to find joy in this terrible suffering. Thank you all… God save all here! xoxo

      Joining in prayer for you and your family, Deb. My heart goes out to you in this suffering. You may find consolation in the Surrender Novena which can be found here. Sometimes, I simply pray the aspiration repeatedly: “Jesus, I surrender myself to you, take care of everything.”

      Deb,
      Don’t despair, Trust God and place yourself and your children under the Blessed Mother’s Mantle. Remember that God’s will is Love and Mercy itself (Divine Mercy Chaplet), but sometimes it is difficult to recognize that until later.
      I’m in a similar situation, my wife of 25 years decided she was done with me and our 4 kids (only 2 are still at home) a little over a year ago. Although she says she is only done with me, she has very little to do with the kids anymore either.
      The first few months were an incredibly heavy burden, to much to bear on my own (this is mostly due to my own pride being hurt). When I truly surrendered, and used the Surrender Novena that Beckita recommended, the burden was (and is) still there; but the weight of it is gone.
      Charlie’s advise to me all those months ago was quite simple and effective; “Prayer, Penance, Reparations, and Patience”. I find the patience part to be the most difficult.

      I have also found a new appreciation of the “Our Father”, It is a short form of the Surrender Novena if you really think about the phrases.
      You are not alone.
      JJ

      This is so true and exactly the case with my husband….he is hopeless and does not believe that anything can get better. He doesn’t believe in counseling/ talking about his depression or our marital issues. Without God, he does not have hope…it has destroyed our marriage. I pray so deeply that he will have a conversion…God in his life would bring him such peace. Thank you so much for your prayers. God Bless.

    I’m praying for all here. Marriages are being attacked everywhere. I posted about my husband of 15 years with 4 kids leaving me recently. He told me this week that there is no hope for us. He just wants a divorce. He has always suffered with depression. He thinks just walking away to start a new life will make him happy. I believe his “faith” was just about doing what he thought I wanted. He never really had a relationship of his own with God. I know that God is telling me that it’s not up to me. That it’s in his hands. I’m just so completely devastated and can’t stop crying. I still love him but I know God has to change him , not me. Please pray i can stop being so scared and to be strong for my children. I know God loves me and I must walk with miraculous trust. Pray I can focus on Jesus and not the storm, because for me it’s raging and I feel like I’m sinking. Thank you all. Know I am offering my prayers and suffering for all here. God bless you.

      Praying for you, Deb. Thank you so much for yours. It is a crushing sorrow you are walking, yet, you do not walk alone. God IS near. I pray that you reach out to His Presence in friends and services around you that can support you in this journey. It’s too much for anyone to navigate alone. One gem which I firmly believe would bring you comfort – for the temptation is to sink when one needs to self-advocate for help and healing – is Fr. Spitzer’s book, The Light Shines on in the Darkness, found here. Look right away at Chapters 4 and 5, for they advise one how to reach for consolation and strength. Often, we wait for God to do it for us when He is inviting us to co-create with Him.

      However God intervenes and wherever He takes you, the sun will shine again. There IS Light on the horizon. Please consider praying the Surrender Novena found here. Jesus, we entrust Deb to You, please take care of everything. May Christ imbue you with His Hope and Peace, Deb.

    We lost our Beloved son Liam this past Friday. We shockingly found out he was in unspeakable agony and he took his own life. My husband & I were first on the scene and I started cpr (nurse-Mom) He was so loved by so many in our community—-a gentle, loving kid, very quick with a smile or joke. He had astonishing musical talent (piano), was a black belt in Shotokan karate, was an altar server since first holy communion, a page at our local library. He had just started an electrical program where my husband works—they’d commute together and pray rosary together on the way in, have lunch together.

    I want to let you all know I witnessed to Our Awesome Triune God’s goodness and mercy in that darkest hour—to all the First Responders. I told them that this beautiful child’s life will not be defined by this vile evil, and that it was important to me, that each one of them did not lose their faith or hope in My Sweet Jesus and His Mercy. I told them that I believed God will bring about incredible goodness from this senseless tragedy. I begged them for their prayers. By the grace of God, we will never stop witnessing to His Infinite Love & Mercy.

    There is such an overwhelming outpouring of love from our community, our dear friends who came and stayed with us and carried us through the planning, etc, and our beloved Pastor Fr. Greg. who was there with us at the scene and has been so selfless in his love–offering every mass this month for Liam.

    I thought you all my be amused that his casket is going to be “Rocket Red”, a rocket speeding him into My Jesus’s arm, +Please, Sweet Jesus+ Red is his favorite color, and it is also the color of Divine Mercy/Jesus’s Precious Blood, and the Holy Spirit.

    Please hold us all in prayer–he has 7 siblings and a Beloved Border Collie, Kep and all are devastated. The next few days are rough, wake, funeral, getting suicide note from police and his phone back (not sure when) but the endless stretch of days after that is most terrifying for us all.

    By the grace of God, we will Never Give Up! Keep on Keepin’ on Dear All! Love conquers All! God Bless us, Everyone!

Pray also for his mom who he has rejected. She is a beautiful follower of Jesus and is in such pain. She fasts regularly for his benefit.

          Thank you Kelli and everyone here at TNRS for your prayers. I know prayers from the heart are the most powerful and I believe this group must be some of the best pray’ers on earth. Thank you all.
          Michael was diagnosed with ADHD in fifth grade and has always struggled to find his place in the world. Along with rejecting his Mom, he completely rejects the Catholic faith with which he was raised and believes it’s the cause for many of his problems. I believe it’s a miracle he doesn’t have a substance abuse problem but he is very aware of the prescription drug dangers and that’s part of the reason he isn’t on the medication he needs for his anxiety and depression. It’s all compounded by the injuries he suffered during his one and only grand mal seizure at age 24 where he broke both shoulders. He lives in constant physical pain and has little range of motion in his arms. The injury was on top of the fact that his shoulders have been dislocated at least 20 times beginning at age 13 due to his joints, from birth, are too stretchy.

          I don’t judge him as but for the grace of God, there go I. With all these heavy crosses, I will not lose hope. I trust in God and know he will turn this to good. Please God, help us know how to help Michael. You know he is losing his roommate by Dec 31, and must find another place to live. You know he needs to find work he enjoys but also offers health benefits. You know he needs to open just a crack so you can flood him with all the graces stored up for him by so many prayers and sacrifices by his mom, family, friends and now the TNRS’ers. It sounds like a hopeless case for sure. But it isn’t because Jesus came in the flesh and redeemed us. May your will be done and may it include Michael at peace with God, his family, himself and even living in this world. Amen

      Ah, Littlelight, this is sad news, but you are making it filled with grace for all involved. I have a friend who lost his son a few years ago. Instead of suffering inside, he made the decision to celebrate his son to all his friends and spoke readily about his son to all. It was awe-inspiring, a choice which helped him cope and recover. It seems you have chosen that same route, to celebrate your son to all. I believe it will help you and many others heal more quickly from this loss. I have prayed a PMT for you, Liam, and all family members and friends who have been affected by this. God bless you.

    So very grateful Dear All, Dear Beckita, Mick, Steve, Ceci, Patricia, JLynn,,,,so much overwhelming joy/good is coming from this, we can’t keep up with it all—we are drowning in a sea of Christ’s love, as witnessed through You All—here on TNRS community, in our own community—all over the country and even someone 6,000 miles away! It will not be humanly possible to thank everyone—we lost count the very first day Liam died. The act of selfless love are spreading exponentially—we seriously can not comprehend it. So humbling. +Dear Lord, please bless them ALL, reward them ALL as Fr, Frigault (Rest in Pace) who baptized Liam said: “The Lord CANNOT be outdone in GENEROSITY! Please, Lord let their tears be replaced with unlimited Joy. I believe, my God, I will love You Always and Forever! +

    Please see my son, Liam here. This was our last vacation in Littleton NH. He was playing a street piano. He taught himself this piece from a youtube video after only having rudimentary piano lessons. He played this every day. The last time I heard him play it, he was even faster and Zero mistakes. He was satisfied (sadly we know now it was on his bucket list, he had planned his suicide for a
    while). I am so very grateful to God my husband thought to record this so we have it.At the end you hear our voices and the love we all share—we are so very blessed!

      Littlelight, I am so glad you felt you could come to this TNRS community with your crushing news and that you can receive the consolation that pours from the hearts here – I have felt the blessing myself and am so grateful to the Lord and the way He works things (like this site) for our good. I hope you were able to have a peek at MP’s glorious video above. But most of all I hope you are able to find His Peace sometime in the coming “endless stretch of days”. Our prayers and love are with you all, especially Liam.

    Littlelight, another chaplet of Divine Mercy is offered for Liam. May the healing presence of our Lord and the comfort of our Blessed Mother be with you and all your loved ones in the days and weeks to come. Your faith and strength are truly inspiring and the love you have for Liam and your family is infused in every word. Thank you for sharing Liam with us. The Mozart piece was so endearing. St. Patrick, cover Liam with the prayer of your breastplate. May Liam rest in the arms of Jesus.

    Patricia, may Michael be filled with the gifts of the Holy Spirit to help him walk in confidence and faith.

    Praise God as this year has been a year of Giving!
    Thanks for your prayers and support, we have received blessings on many areas this year:
    1.My Wife had a successful surgery – she had a stone removed from her throat and all bills were taken care of by the insurance, and we received financial assistance for immediate settlements
    2. Bank called me to inform that they are willing to accept small payments based on rents received from the tenant.
    3. Tenant who had stopped all checks initially after issuing a legal notice agree to release payments.
    4. My daughters diagnosis of blood in the stool was discovered nothing so serious and she will have to continue taking medication for low iron and low blood counts.
    5. Son fell from the school stairs but no scratch on the body.
    6. My wife has an opportunity to apply for an internal vacancy for a higher grade which has not happened before, so she is preparing for her interview. If she gets the job then we have our kids education almost covered.
    7. I have been assigned a treasurer post with legion of mary in the church, after which many financial blessings opened up.

    I am still trying for some extra source of income to help in payment of debts. Looks tough for my age and with very few opportunities. But, I am certain that God will help me out, nothing is impossible for our God!

  38. Thank you to all who prayed for my daughter’s family and 12 year old grand daughter…The child is still in a place of much darkness so, if you are willing, please pray for her and the entire family.The younger children are frightened and her parents are beside themselves, We have been praying nearly every devotion there is and she seems to be getting worse. We do have counselors on her case also. I pray for all on this site and hope for miracles. Blessings to all here.

    Eternal rest grant unto the 29 crewmen lost on the evening of November 10, 1975, when the Edmund Fitzgerald went down on Lake Superior, and all who lost their lives in shipwrecks.
    Eternal rest grant unto all those who have given the last full measure of devotion for our country and may we be worthy of their sacrifice. Amen

  43. I’d like to request prayers for my neighbor’s mother, Shirley. She is in kidney failure and is not expected to survive the week. Please also pray for Kenny, her son, who will be traveling from Rapid City to Salt Lake by bus with his small service dog. The trip will take 21 hours and he arrives on Thanksgiving day. Thank you very much.

    I humbly ask for prayers of discernment, for prayers for my grandmother as well as for all of us who love her dearly. She made it to her 99th birthday on the 15th…but now is once again on crisis care. The hospice doctor saw her tonight and said that she is reaching her last stage…..I’m supposed to fly out tomorrow, the 20th, for a trip that had been organized almost a year ago to Iceland with a return on the 27th…now I’m in a struggle. …do I go or do I stay…I’m so confused. I’ve been praying for detachment for a while now and am wondering if it’s a test to let go of the ‘pleasures of life’ (travels) or if it’s detachment from my grandmother, who I’m having a difficult time letting go of….I’ve always felt like I’m supposed to be there during her final moment, but tonight as I was with her and the doctor was confirming that this time/crisis was different, I almost felt like I’m not sure that I could handle being there….but then I feel like she would want me there….I’m very torn about what to do. Should I trust that if it is the Lord’s Will for me to be with her in that moment, that He will make it happen?…or is it up to me to stay and try to be there as much as possible??…….
    So..once again…I humbly ask for prayers of discernment , that I may open my heart and mind in order to clearly hear the Holy Spirit’s prompt. I also, most importantly ask for prayers for my grandmother, that she may be accompanied by the Holy Trinity, Mamma Mary and all the Angels and Saints during this last part of her journey here. Lastly, I ask for prayers for my family and myself as we face this truth with pure faith, trust, courage and His strength and peace. We don’t know how long it may be…she has always been a very strong and strong-willed woman…..🙏🏻🙏🏻

      Praying for you as you discern, Drea, and joining in invoking the Holy Spirit to descend upon you. I pray you follow your heart in your decision-making and I also pray for your whole family as you have asked.

      I would like to share that being at the deaths of my father, my sister and my husband were three of the holiest times in my life. God’s Grace to accompany them in their final hours was there in all its strengthening and consolation… but I didn’t have that grace a moment before it was needed. God provided its abundance at the very time of need. Each dear one’s birth to new life reminded me of the births of my children. Each one needed my presence at their death in ways which have forever enriched my life. Of course, there were many tears, but also t.r.e.m.e.n.d.o.u.s. beauty, peace and love. In my heart, mind and soul, I dwelt upon the reality that death is not simply the end. Oh no. It is a most beautiful beginning. I knew my loved ones would be on their way to no more suffering, no more tears and the complete fulfillment of all their desires. I knew our relationship would change dramatically but never.ever.end. I was gaining a personal patron saint with each one!

      May Christ imbue you with His Peace, Drea, as you pray and discern. Love on your journey, whether you choose to go to Iceland or remain to accompany your grandmother on her Final Journey Home.

    Drea, may I simply say Amen to everything Beckita has said. I accompanied my father, my grandmother and my mother in their final journeys, I was not with my father or my grandmother when they took their final breath (on each occasion I had taken a rest break) but am nevertheless glad I was with them in their final suffering. I was with my mother to the end – she hung on until all 7 of us were by her side (the 8th was, I believe, waiting at the other side for her to arrive.) I look back on those experiences in wonder and awe.

    please intervene God. I’m hurt inside, i am so tired to cover everything by pretending and no matter how hard I pray nothing seems to be working, please pray for Damianus aditya christie and me. I have been waiting for reconciliation and peace for me and him, everyone tells me to forget and leave it, they keep pressing me. I cried, it’s not so easily as they say and imagine. i feel so traumatized, I have been struggling with depressed and suffering for the past 3 years. I know You knows my pain God, You always know what was happened because You see everything a most hidden corner, Father you say, ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. I come with a broken heart, i depend on you and still hope, if God deign, please God soften and touch Damianus aditya christie heart for me, He means a lot to me. I really love him and disappointed to him at the same time. I can’t touch his heart, only God can change people’s hearts. please help me face things that are beyond my capabilities. because God, You have power to help me. if you do not want this reconciliation to happen, please give me strength to overcome the bitterness. Teach me how to remain grateful when the hardest one, teach me to love You more than anything. I really need a miracle, thank you

      nn, I continue to pray for your strength and endurance. Three years is a long tie to be forlorn over a loved one. You’ve prayed and we have prayed with you. Have you spoken to your priest or a counselor for guidance and support?
      I lost hope praying for someone I love to change. I felt crushed before I realized that I had to care for myself. I fought that as a premise all along and finally succumbed to that as truth. I was the one that had to be transformed with the grace of God. This is how we are signs of hope to ourselves and to others. May the Holy Spirit enkindle in you the fire of His love. ❤
