  10. I am asking for your prayers because I am separated from my husband and I want to be back with him. It is too long of a story to go into but long story short, I need a miracle to get my husband to move to make our marriage work. I moved from one state to another to be near my son, and being as this is a second marriage, he does not care to help me so that I can have him and my son too. I miss him and only want to be with him. I am lonesome but I take my catholic religion serious and I cannot meet another man even if I wanted to because I would be committing a sin! It would lead to sleeping together and I would not be in the state of grace! Please pray for a miracle for God and St. Anthony to change his mind and heart and find a way to make this marriage work out by relocating so that I can be near my son and have my marriage too!! I need this to happen soon, I don’t want him finding another woman and falling in love with her, I will never get him to do anything in the way of being with me! Thank you so much for your prayers!

My son drives crazy also, he has a heavy foot and texts while he drives as well. I pray that St. Michael protects him always and that he will realize his mistakes and starts changing his ways, I love him very much and don’t want anything to happen to him!! Thank you for your prayers!

  15. I’m in desperate need of all prayers. I have always believed miracles occur everyday, but after inlaws weed prayers I’m finding it hard to continue to believe. My best friend betrayed me, my mom tells me she hates me, my sister and I don’t speak, and the man I believed to be the one hurt me. I believed in him, and I love him. He was hurt so bad from his ex wife, and I feel he punishes me for that. I’m so lost, and I have never felt more alone and broken. Betrayel never comes from your enemies, but I never expected it to come from my family. My dad was all I had, and he is deceased. I was in an abusive marriage and I’m raising my 3 children alone. I have begged God for a sign and encouragement but I have not received anything. I’m sinking faster than I can swim. Please pray for me as I will pray for all of you.

  16. Me and my family struggling very hard financially. I live with my husband and two sons and I am looking after my aged mother too.

We have lost our house few years ago so we are in a rented house. Kindly pray that my husband so that he will get a good job and that someone kindly sponsor my 2 sons college fees and for medical expenses (of the family). Due to low income there were other expenses (i.e travel, provisions, monthly rent etc.) for which we got it on loan and couldn’t pay it back and the interest is going up.

    Dear Prayer Warriors,

    Please pray for me and remember me in all your intercessions.

    My immediate neighbour was a christian now converted into devil worshiping. There a lot of very weird things around us of late but i trust in our good lord for breakthrough and mighty blessings.

    recently we had an accident and we thank our God for saving us despite the fact that our car was wrecked completely, we had big plans about expanding our business and had planned to visit china to buy more stock. the financial support we had sort from one of the banks haven’t come through, we are between a rock and a hard service financially and we are somehow stuck.

    please intercede for me together with other devoted christians and prayer warriors all over the world who are facing similar challenges. May the holy spirit of our God always guard our intentions and grant breakthroughs and divine protection from the evil plots of the evil one and his agents amen.

  22. There are a revelations (2 diff sources) that somebody I helped by giving him my money, used it to do charm so that I will not progress. Honestly, I have experienced hell. I was not promoted in my work for 6 yrs, I resigned to do business but one single contract i executed never paid off. They help my money since 2012 and be releasing it in piece meal. Any little fund I get will be scattered, am always borrowing and all sorts.

    ”Brethren pray for me in our Novena Prayers that God will deliver me from such bondage and bless me.” I count on your prayers.

  23. Struggling for many years after my divorce I prayed non stop for years to have my prays answered. I have always prayed for a wonderful husband. I believed that the recent man I was dating for these past 6 months (Bryan D. N.) was going to be the man that I have prayed endlessly for all of my life. I continuously pray to St. Anthony for his intercession and believed that the final Novena to St. Anne would provide me a clear answer and my miracle. Please help pray that Gods Will shall be done for me.
