  1. I pray for more faithfulness, my husbands true love for me, the financial blessings since my husband lost his job and for our health thank you

  2. Please pray that I find a job that I can do, be happy at and keep for the next 20 years. I need to be able to support myself and my elderly mom – not just bills for us both ( and after almost 4 years of unemployment we are heavily in debt. ) but some measure of comfort and fun. Please, pray that I find such a job because it’s time mom retires and I take care of her. Thank you.

  3. Knowing that there are prayer warriors supporting you makes the load lighter. I will join whatever petition is asked God so I can join in prayer,

  4. Please pray that my daughter get an accurate diagnosis and treatment for her mental illness. And, that she will lose the bitterness in her heart for others. Also, that she and my son return to church, and for my husband to convert. Please dear Jesus, let there be peace in my family.
    All according to your will, dear God.

    And, for all those mothers who had abortions. It is a pain that never leaves.

  5. In three hours from now Mary and Joseph and the animals will behold His Face, the incarnate Jesus, amongst us, in the flesh, to start His Divine plan of redemption, right before our eyes.
    I pray for the unborn, the poor, sinners, the sick, and afficted. Mary knows exactly what she’s doing with Him from Him and among us, all the way to Calvary and the Beautific Union in Heaven. How could we ever doubt?
