Early Friday requests

Please pray for Thomas who took his life 3 months ago at age 23.

A medical examiner has determined that the recent death of an 8-year-old East Texas girl was a suicide by hanging. Please pray for the distraught family too. I can't even begin to imagine the grief.

Someone sent me this link which I will add on our website:

Another request for Wednesday

14-year-old girl from the Republic of Mari El in Central Russia has committed suicide, allegedly because she was afraid of the upcoming doomsday, predicted last Saturday.

prayer warriors

Just to let you know that among the 3 groups praying - in the Facebook group, the blog and offline, we have over 300 prayer warriors praying for the souls who have committed suicide and those who are suicidal. Thank you for your commitment to this worthy cause.

Wednesday requests

Please pray for Lori who suffers from depression which sometimes paralyzes her.

A family of four that included a 9-year-old girl and a high school senior was found dead Tuesday in a swimming pool and bathtub at their San Diego home, in what police are calling an apparent triple murder-suicide. Please pray for the repose of their souls.

Please pray for Joseph Brooks, the Oscar-winning composer of the ballad You Light Up My Life who faced charges of raping aspiring actresses, was found dead from an apparent suicide in his Upper East Side apartment Sunday afternoon, police said. He was 73 years old.

Please pray for Jackie, who committed suicide in 1998. She was a mother of 3 whose estranged husband took her children away from her--she couldn't handle the loss and took her own life. She had a devotion to Mary.

Urgent prayer request

Please pray for Jessamyn, age 39, who tried to commit suicide on Sunday by taking prescription and over the counter drugs. This has done so much damage to her body that she has to have one of her legs amputated, a liver transplant and she has kidney failure.

Her aunt called me and asked for prayers and I told her that I was hearing trains like crazy Sunday morning, and prayed the Divine Mercy chaplet on my knees for a person who may be trying to commit suicide. Her aunt said it may have saved her life. I was getting ready for church at the time, and was in a hurry, when I was hearing the trains, and did not want to stop and get on my knees, but I did anyway. The lesson here is when we get that prompting from the Holy Spirit, to obey it.

Saturday, May 21, 2011


I would like to share something that a woman just sent me and said I could share:

"I have to tell you how much your story about the train and suicide touched me. Whenever I hear the train around here I think to pray for someone who is suicidal. The other day, I felt that my son's girlfriend was suicidal. It is a long story. I also heard a train twice. After Mass we all went out to lunch and then coming back to get my car I felt I just had to go in an pray for her. I even talked to my brother just before praying and saying that I felt real uneasy about her. Well, I said the Divine Mercy and then a Rosary. I found out later that night that she indeed was thinking of suicide."

Saturday request

This request was from a member of another group I belong to:
For the repose of the soul of my cousin Mike who committed suicide
on Monday. Pray for his mom, brothers and the rest of our family as we try to cope. Shalom.

Prayers needed for a San Antonio, TX police officer who took his life today (May 20), very sad, was found by a fellow officer.

Please pray for Jared, who committed suicide yesterday or the day before - thanks

Catching up

Forgove me if these are repeats. I am so behind on email. It is fun to go away for the weekend, but catching up upon return is overwhelming. Here are requests I think I did not post:

Please pray for Charlie, a high school senior who committed suicide on May 11.

Please pray for Hilary, who took his own life.

Please pray for Jeremy who struggles with drug addiction and attempted suicide.

Prayer request for Rosemary, a mother of three young children, who took her own life over the weekend. The family resides in the Philippines.

Please pray for Dean who is suicidal.

La Joya Police Chief Jose Del Angel, 44, took his own life. Please pray for his soul. (we usually do not use last names for privacy, but this was in the news.)

Please pray for Paul, who took his own life after killing his wife, her new partner, and his five year old daughter; leaving a 20mth old as an orphan. May God have Mercy on them all.

another one in the news: Please pray for Officer Philip Chlanda. A NYC Police Officer who killed himself this morning while on duty. May God have mercy on his soul.

Please pray for young Chinese bride, who attempted suicide, when her husband-to-be, left her at the wedding venue.

Please pray for Dorothy's nephew Lovemore who shot himself in the head on Thursday 5/12 around 5pm after his wife told him that his daughter was not his child. He has been suffering for a long time and had no-one to talk to. Please also pray for Dorothy's son who she fears is at risk of suicide, his name is Kumbi. Thank you

New request and encouragement

Please pray for a young girl named Marissa who is suicidal and cutting herself. I told her mother that I would try to find someone to spiritually befriend her and pray for her every day. Any takers? It would be nice to have someone that does not already have a friend to pray for.

I was at a conference this weekend, where I met Marissa's mother. Another lady came up to me and said that she sent the link to our website to a lot of people and that it is really helping people. I thought you would like to know that.

Also Dr. Rosalie Turton from the 101 Foundation spoke and she really impressed how importrant it is to pray that souls do not go to hell. She spoke about making sacrifices often for someone who is dying and in danger of going to hell - little things like giving up that cookie you wanted to eat, for a soul, etc. I thought this was a little confirmation for what we are doing here when we pray for those who are suicidal and even when we pray for those who have committed suicide, when we pray an anticipatory prayer that they were saved.

Praise report

Thank you for your prayers. I got two praise reports on Monday concerning two people who were on our at risk list. Joe's sister says he is doing better and is thankful for the prayers.

From a friend of Robbey's mother:
"Robbey [the young man who jumped from a bridge in NYC] is doing great. He is DRIVING back and forth to Physical therapy. Truly a miracle. He has a long way to go but he survived, God sure a plan for this young man. I can not tell you enough how much I and his mom appreciated your prayers and forwarding it to others to pray."

Tuesday prayer request

I was asked to post the following request. It was sent to me last Friday but I never got it, so the man re-sent it today.

Please pray for Sean and his family. He was a husband and father of three, who apparently committed suicide last Tues. or Wed. This was entirely unforeseen, and is shocking and devastating for many. Thank you.
