Saturday requests

From the Facebook group:


On Monday, as we in the States remember and pray for those who have served in our military and their families especially those who gave the ultimate sacrifice ...let us also remember those who took their own life while on active duty and for the families who are left behind to cope with this tragedy.

Please pray for Peter. He struggles with the thoughts of suicide for years and now is in that same battle and depression. Thank you

Praying for the souls

  • Tonight I attended the Mass and devotions at my parish that we have monthly for the souls in purgatory. I prayed for all the souls on our list. I recorded the priest's talks with my new camera, hoping to share with you but because of the acoustics in my church, it did not come out good. One thing Father said was that one time he was hospitalized with gallstones and no matter what way he turned, he could not get comfortable. He said it is the same for the souls in purgatory. They cannot help themselves, no matter how they turn. They need us!
    Also he said that from the spiritual reading he has done, he has learned that the souls in purgatory can feel physical pain even though they do not have their bodies.,
    Again, they need us. And they will be forever grateful.

Friday requests

Ascension Thursday requests

From Facebook group:
Asking for prayers for Will. I grew up with Will and as a child he had some health issues. He lost much of his hearing. Will now has intended to commit suicide any way he can. He is also combative towards women, threatening to cut them into pieces or slash their throats. He has developed a drinking problem that escalates his anger. Will has been comitted to a hospital for treatment involuntarily. While I am so disheartened to learn this about Will, I am praying that Jesus takes Will back to the person I once knew and gives him a reason to hope and move forward. My Jesus Mercy.

Please pray for Melissa Eklund. She was a 16 yr old who just took her life last week in Michigan after a break up. I never attended a funeral for someone so young, who had so much to live for - it was so sad. I am praying for her as well as all teens comtemplating suicide that the devil doesnt tempt them with his illusion of light and freedom through suicide. Jesus, be with them. Amen

Please pray for CHRIS he poured gasoline over himself & lit himself on fire. Don't know if he survived. ThankYou

Praise report and prayer request

Silvia for whom we have been praying, said to tell you:"thanks to all the wonderful people that are praying for me. I feel a little bit better, I went to adoration last night and I felt more in peace. But I'm still very fragile."

On another note, please pray for the man who was sitting at my table tonight at the reception after the Tajci concert at my church. My friend recognized him as the same guy who was threatening to kill himself a while back and had to be restrained and taken to the hospital. She did not know his name but God knows.  Thanks

prayer request and awesome story

Please pray fro Julie, a young mother, who tried to commit suicide over the weekend. She is in rehab now. Julie had called my friend on Saturday night and asked for prayers. The next day at Mass during the Consecration as my friend prayed for Julie my friend had a vision of Jesus holding a girl whose hair was all wet, as if to be offering her to the Father. My friend wondered what this was all about. The next day a family member of Julie's called my friend and said that Julie had taken pills and threw herself in the river the night before at 3 AM, but a man saw her and tied some shirts together and rescued her. I think the man was Jesus, or at least an angel sent by Jesus! The power of prayer is amazing! Please keep praying! Thanks.
