Almighty, everlasting God, who hast dominion over both the living and the dead and art merciful to all who, as Thou foreknowest, will be Thine by faith and works; we humbly beseech Thee that they for whom we intend to pour forth our prayers, whether this present world still doth detain them in the flesh or the world to come hath already received them stripped of their mortal bodies, may, by the grace of Thy fatherly love and through the intercession of all the saints, obtain the remission of all their sins. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, who with Thee in the unity of the Holy Spirit liveth and reigneth God, world without end. Amen.

  3. Please pray for my Oscar who was attacked by another dog this evening .

    He was bitten on his left ear and was left bleeding . We will find
    out tomorrow how serious his condition is ,after a consultation with the vet.

    Our poor Oscar was involved in a road traffic accident 3 years ago and got away with a limp , most probably arthritis later on in life which his breed is already prone too!

    I am urging you all to fervently pray for my angel Oscar who is as good as GOLD ,so that he does not suffer too much.

    GOD BLESS YOU ALL!

  21. I am asking for prayers to help me find suitable employment.

    I have been the sole supporter of my Mother (retired) for multiple years, my Fiancee (unemployed) for almost 1 1/2 years and myself while I have been unemployed for almost 13 months. I have recently discussed with both my Mother and my Fiancee that I will no longer be able to support either of them financially. My Mother will have to sell her house and my Fiancee is now in another state to find work. Since I have been unemployed, I have been in contact with multiple employers in an attempt to find work to no avail.

    I would also ask for your prayers to help my Mother and my Fiancee return to good health.

    I have always found that my prayer time has given me a sense of peacefulness and calm. However, at this time, I need some extra help.

    Thank you so much for all of your prayers and intentions. They are so appreciated.

    • Remember to always trust (love) the Lord with heart, body, soul and strength. You have been very patient…please continue this patience for God wills what and when it is to be done . Keep the faith…I feel that you will soon find satisfaction!
