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.

  1. Can you all pray for the repose of the soul of Jack Bowen and his family? Especially his wife. He passed away last night about 10:22 p.m. He is my sister’s father-in-law. Thanks

  2. I am humbly asking for prayers for my husband’s surgery next Monday morning for prostate cancer. Asking our Lord for a successful surgery and complete healing from the surgery and cancer. Also praying for his surgeon and all the medical staff.

    I am a bit early in this request but knew that the weekend may be hectic.

    Thank you all in advance. I know there are great prayer warriors on this chain!

    God Bless

    1. Just noticed your prayer request, Blessed. Praying for your dear husband’s surgery and his complete recovery. (Please God.) Praying too, for total peace for each of you and both of you together.

    2. Blessed, I think your timing is appropriate, because it allows us to keep praying up until the time of surgery. I join with many faithful prayer warriors here to pray for successful surgery and recovery for your husband, and comfort to you and your family.

    3. Dear Blessed, I will pray for your husband’s surgery to go smoothly with great success and speedy recovery. My brother just had a prostatectomy for prostate cancer and it went very well and quickly recuperated. I pray the same for your husband and also pray for you as his caretaker after surgery. God bless you.

  6. Dearest Charlie, Becky, Snowy, Auiemarie2014, Janet, Jylnnbyrd, Stevebc and all of you (please forgive me if I left out an important name) I try not to ask too often, but I have a few prayer requests:

    My son Tommy is going on another ice climb hike in the mountains of Colorado jan 20 – 25 with Dr. Smith. He’s done this before and I asked for your help. Tommy is still not back to the faith although he is such a good person. (Better than me that’s for sure) He’s an ER Nurse and is going with devout catholic Dr Smith who is devout Catholic Er Doc. Dr. Smith takes and pays for a young man every year. I think it is evangelistic on his part in secret intentions! What an angel. So anyways, please pray for their safety and perhaps a rekindling of the faith for Tommy. Bleesed Pier Giorgio Frassati Please Pray for Tommy and Dr. SMith!!

    Next…Tommy and his wife beautiful Liz are going to the Philippines Feb 8 – 25 for another great adventure. They are traveling nurses so every now and then they get a month off before next assignment. I ask that you pray for their safety there too. There is much civil unrest in the Philippines, volcanoes about to explode and only God knows what else…lol..really… Only God knows!

    Thirdly, I worked for a dear woman yesterday to clean her house for her who is in the latter stages of Lou Gehrig’s disease. She is praying for a Miracle from Blessed Salanus Casey and visited his church about a month ago. She is resigned to God’s Holy will but I would like you all to pray for her that she has a miracle cure if it is indeed God’s will!

    Oh thank you all so very very much!!! I love you all and may God bless you all…and may His Holy Angels and Saints Guide your every path!

    For the people of the Kingdom, and the people of heaven, shall rise together, shall rise forever and God shall rule!!!! 😉 TNRS

      1. Thank you, Janet. Say, I had to go see “Darkest Hour” again…and it was just as good the second time around. (Gary did a brilliant job). Churchill is one of my favorite figures from WWII. And I never knew that many were initially considering capitulating to the Germans. I’d love your take on the film.

        1. Hi Patrick…sorry to say I haven’t seen the film yet. Hopefully I will get to see it in the next few weeks. I’ll come back to you when I have. I’m sure I will enjoy it too as its my kind of film. 🙂

  10. Pope Francis February 2018 Prayer Intention

    That those who have material, political or spiritual power may resist any lure of corruption.

    “What is at the root of slavery, unemployment, and disregard for nature and goods held in common? Corruption, a process of death that feeds the culture of death.
    Because the thirst for power and possessions knows no limits.
    Corruption is not countered with silence.
    We must speak about it, denounce its evils, and try to understand it so as to show our resolve to make mercy reign over meanness, beauty over nothingness.
    Let us pray that those who have material, political or spiritual power may resist any lure of corruption.”

  11. Please pray for my husband, he is getting very sick and has been getting worse for many months with a cough that will not go away. The Doctors can find no reason for it and so are not doing much to treat him. He’s to the point now where he can’t work because he can’t breathe. Thanks everyone.
    Praying everyday for all here! 💕✝

  12. Hi Charlie, Beckita, Jlynnbyrd, Janet, Stevebc, Mick, Prayerpartner, Audiemarie2014, PatrickDaniel, Dorothy, KrisR. and whomever else is on here praying for people… I call you the BIG GUNS!!! Sooooo… just a little reminder about our son, Tommy and his wife Liz…they are on a big ole plane about now for 18 hours going from LA to Philippines!!! They have no plans for the next three weeks and have nothing booked and are just “winging it!” I think they are totally crazy!!!! My bp was up so high last night 159/100 just from anxiety of the whole thing.. I told my son he was going to put me in a looney bin and he agreed!!! Hahahahaha.. so I repeated to him 3 times, Jesus, I trust in you. They are both traveling nurses and not going to church but they are really good people. tommy is an ER nurse and Liz an ICU nurse..they are better than I could ever hope to be and I frequent the sacraments. Special kids they are. So for the next 3 weeks, if ya’ll could say little prayers for them if you think of this silly story here. Also, Mike and I are leaving for our own “tour de Florida” which we do once a year for Mike’s work and then some play. A little help for us too would be so appreciated! God bless you all! I’ll be praying a lot of rosaries in the car and will remember all you good folk! God Save us All and TNRS!!! Thank you so much and God bless you all!

  13. Dear Friends,

    I have hesitated to ask for prayers because what I am going to ask for is accompaniment on a long journey…that of Frodo and Sam making their way through Mordor.
    I am slowly weaning myself off a drug which I have been on for over 34 years.
    It is a benzodiazepine, clonopin.
    Here is a brief article to give you some idea of the horrific nature of this process:

    https://www.huffingtonpost.com/van-winkles/the-daily-nightmare-of-be_b_7866700.html

    I am able to sleep only a few hours a week.
    There is a sparkler in my head that is constantly flashing.
    Constant dizziness that gets worse with lying down.
    I spend many nights in the bathtub.

    I offer up all my suffering… for many months now.
    But I am worn out.
    Jesus is my strength.
    And I need the strength of friends who will lift me up before the throne of God.

    My doctor says I should have a five year plan for coming off this drug.
    It has already been over a year of torment.

    Thank you, dear Friends!

    God has given me JRRTolkien to give me relief on this journey.

    My journey is a story of witches, demons, fairies, exorcism, ufos, shamans, terrors and horrors and most of all God,s abiding LOVE, His POWER, His Mysterious WAYS.

    Blessed Be God Forever!

    “Though He
    Slay me, yet will I trust Him.” Job 13:15

    Did you know J.R.R. Tolkien was a daily communicant and believed that “The Lord of the Rings” was “given” to him?
    I have listened to the audiobook twice and am about to begin again. (All these long nights!)

    As far as medical help, my dear friend, a psychiatrist at Duke University said,” there is no Doctor,
    No medicine that can help you through this. You are going to have to walk through this…I am so sorry.”

    Holding you all in my heart.

  15. Please, pray for Francesca, in her early forties. She was killed yesterday by her former husband with a knife, after two years and a half of stalking. He then killed himself, cutting his wrists.
    Francesca leaves two daughters, aged 8 and 10. She was a close friend of my colleague. Thanks.

  16. I will be praying for all here and I ask for prayers for myself as I am trying to recover from the Flu. I spent 2 days in the hospital because of breathing problems and , tho I am home now, I am very weak and tired and I still have some breathing problems. I appreciate any prayers as I know my concern is less serious than others here. Please know I pray for the intentions of this entire community.

    1. Oh Noreen. So sorry for your illness. Absolutely praying – a PMT and taking you to Adoration this evening – for you to make a swift and complete recovery. Thank you so much for your prayers for us, especially while suffering with the flu and complication of breathing problems. While praying you into wellness, I am always amazed how potent is the prayer of suffering. God bless you.
