I went to Our Lady of Good Help shrine last weekend and took the list of names with me and prayed for them and all of you when I was there. I am so grateful to all of you for helping me in this mission to pray for the souls.

I have been asked to add Rachel (young teenager), Abby (young and troubled), and Bill (February 2011) to our list os suicide victims to pray for. Also please pray for Jordan, a 17 year-old in my city who shot herself last Saturday.

Also, please pray for Jim, who is depressed,and in deep debt due to gambling and doesn't want to live.

Thursday prayer requests and list of names

Please pray for the souls of George, Marilyn and Rusty who all committed suicide a number of years ago. Thank you.

By the way, some people have asked for a list of all the names to take to Adoration or other places of prayer. You can go to our website and copy and paste the names to a Word document. I did this and made the font small so it did not print out to so many pages. Here is the page it is on:
Fran D'Antuono has been kind enough to update the list every weekend, but may not be able to do it this week, so the list is up to date till last week.

At risk needing prayers

Two new requests for people at risk for suicide: Rene, a 91 year old man, and for Dominic, whose mother wrote, "Dominic who is very lost right now. He has been running from life for four years. I am asking for prayers to Mary, the Mother of God, that she intercedes to Her Son Jesus, to protect my son from his pain and lead him back to God. Please ask God to keep him safe. Thank you for your prayers, Dominic's mother and father."

More requests

The Holy Spirit at work

A prayer request from a Facebook member:

On Ash Wednesday,I happened to meet a man named Phil who was taking the ashes of his friend who committed suicide to the ocean. He was visibly upset. I told him I would ask this wonderful group to pray for his friend Paul B. who died on Oct. 18th 2010. He then asked if I could also ask for prayers for another friend Joseph D. who also took his life on Feb.18th 2011. I ask for God's mercy for these souls and his peace for the friend they left behind...

This was the Holy Spirit at work.

Friday requests

A woman named Ann called me with a list of suicides. She had 15 names. She said she knew all of them. I don't want to post them all at once and overwhelm everyone, so I told her I would do a few a day. The following people all took their own lives last year: Bobby, Michele, and Eric. Please pray for the repose of their souls.

Ann does not have a computer but will pray ever day for the intentions.

She also asked for prayers for Lisa who is suicidal. Anyone want to "spiritually befriend" Lisa and pray for her every day?

Monday night requests

From Facebook members:

I would like to ask people to pray for Tamami, a woman who may have committed suicide a number of years ago - I actually don't know whether it was a suicide or not, but she came to my mind recently so I thought I'd pass her name along. Thanks so much.

Please pray for my Uncle William who committed suicide 11 years back.

Ash Wednesday requests

Please pray for young Charlie who took his own life last weekend.

Juanita has joined us to pray offline. She would like to add Thad who took his own life because of divorce.

This is from Aaron's mother. I posted about his suicide a few days ago. She said I could share this with you: "I am asking for more prayers for his soul which was in constant torment while he was alive. He was just 29 but has battled drug abuse since he was 13. It has been a very difficult road to watch him through the years. He always cried out for help and we were always there for him but he always pushed everyone away with both hands. He does leave behind a beautiful 3 year old daughter Madelyn. Please pray for her and her mother,Tracy and for Aaron's soul. I fully trust and believe that our God is a merciful one. "

Tuesday requests

Please pray for Jerome who committed suicide on Saturday. His family is devastated....

Please pray for a young man named Andrew who committed suicide recently. Pray for his family in their grief. Pray also for a young man who was a former student in Chuck's school. It was over 20 years ago and his name is forgotten but his suicide was very sad as he didn't want to live anymore, so he waved at a train conductor as the train approached and then he laid his head on the tracks to end his life. May God have Mercy on their souls.

Sunday request

Please pray for Aaron, who committed suicide this weekend due to drug addiction. His mother, whom I know, is very distraught because he did not die in God's grace. (The lady who sent me this note said she was hearing trains right as she was sending me the note.)

We can pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet for Aaron's salvation because in heaven there is no time. I posted about this before, but for the benefit of the newer members, St. Padre Pio and Fr. Corapi both spoke about this. I have heard it called anticipatory prayer. St. Padre Pio said we can pray now for the salvation of our great grandparents who died long ago and others because for God there is no time. I am going to go pray the Chaplet for him right now.

Please pray for LeVina and Jason who took their own lives.

St. Faustina wrote: "I understand souls who are suffering against hope, for I have gone through that fire myself. But God will not give [us anything] beyond our strength.
