  4. Immaculate Conception. Holy Mother Mary. I pray that I can be more like you. Help me to never stop growing in my faith and seeking your Son more and more every day.

    Please pray with me and for me. I pray that Connor and I would have a future together and that this is not the end. My heart has never been so heavy. I pray that this would allow us to love, serve and appreciate one another more in the future and that we can grow closer to Jesus together as a couple. I pray that this is not the end of our story and that through this trial we would grow closer together.

    Mother Mary, you know my heart. Help me.

  5. Mother Mary,
    I humbly come to you and ask you to be with my children always. Take their hands when I am not with them and guide them as they are in school, or out with friends. Please guide their choices so that satan can not influence them. Please continue to help my husband as he guides them as their dad. He is always there for them and loves them with all his heart. Please also guide their future spouses so that if marriage and family is God’s will for them that they will be joined with a faithful spouse that will partner with them on their journey to heaven. If a consecrated live is God’s will for them then please help them to see this clearly and guide them with your motherly hands. Please continue to guide my husband and I in our marriage as we journey to heaven together. Please take the hands of my brother, my father, my husbands family members who have died. And all of my family members who have died and take them to be with You and your Son in heaven.
    Please be with my mother as she is now alone since my father’s passing. Please allow her life to continue to be enriched by her faith and that she continues to be an inspiration to us in our faith. And please don’t ever let go of my hands so that I am a role model for my family and can humbly go God’s will in my life.

    I desperately need your blessings showering on my fiancee, MK. We both love each other very much. But unfortunately, she is suffering from psoriatic arthritis and she is denying marriage as she thinks that her condition will always be a burden for me, and she has decided to live her life single.

    I love her so much that I cant imagine someone else in her place.
    Please dear Lord, hear my prayer and remove this burden from her body and mind so that we can have a good life according to your will. She like to work for you and I will be happy to join her in her venture and be with you for the entire life. Dear Lord we both want to be saints. Please bless us with your merciful gaze. We love you dear Lord.

    Thank you for hearing my prayers

  14. I pray for guidance, help, and protection from enemies and evil. I am asking for a hedge of protection around us and our home because our home and the fence around it have been damaged by vehicles 7 times. We cannot afford to move. Many thanks in advance.

  15. To ask for God’s forgiveness for behaving emotionally unstable. To ask God to soften Davids heart so he can forgive me. Forgive me for being desperate, For not listening to God and For thinking that I could force David to love me when he clearly was not ready or even right for me. However, God was asking me to help David and instead I was selfish and looking out for my own desires. I had one mission. I messed up again. I do not know why I am like this, feel like this. It’s been my lifelong problem no matter how much I pray.

  22. O holy St Gregory, thank you for hearing my 3 day prayer. I know you have heard me and I anxiously await your intercession, succor and assistance. Thank you for helping all those who come to you.

    O holy Saint Gregory, confessor and priest of the Lord, I pray thee that thou wouldst intercede with our Lord God for me, that, being purified from all vice, I may please Him in all things, and that He will grant me the peace possessed by all His servants.
    Amen.

  23. O holy St Rita, thank you for hearing my 3 day prayer. I know you have heard me and I anxiously await your intercession, succor and assistance. Thank you for helping all those who come to you.

    In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit:

    Under the weight of my burden, I turn to you, dear Rita, holy woman and saint. I am confident that you will hear my prayers and intercede on my behalf.

    You, who were chosen by God to be an advocate for those whose cases are most desperate, have the graces necessary to understand my need. [Mention your intention.]

    If my sins are an obstacle, impeding the fulfillment of my urgent plea, I beg you to obtain for me, from God, the necessary grace to see and understand my sinfulness, that I may, in sincere contrition, make a heartful reconciliation through the sacrament of penance.

    From the glory of heaven, have compassion upon me, you who suffered by the grace of the thorn and the rose, that my suffering and anxieties may be lessened, that I may bear my crosses with courage, contentment and trust. I will everywhere proclaim my debt and friendship to you.

    Oh, Bride of Jesus crucified, help me to live well and to die well. Amen.

    Pls kindly Thank Our Lady foe me and I will ever be grateful to Her and St.Joseph.

  26. My prayers have been unanswered. I continue to pray. I have faith in God. My fiance left me and our 2 year old 4 months ago. He moved out of state, cut all contact and is now with a new women. His family supports his life choices and ghey also cut all ties with me and my son. This has been a heartache beyond words. My poor son cries for him every day. I am just so sad. Please pray for us and for him to at least contact me.

    Thank you. Love to all

    • May the Lord bring you peace and comfort in your time of need. I can’t imagine what you are going through but I had someone very close to me go through the same thing. The best advice ever given was to get an attorney to see what your rights are, what rights your son has so that you and your son do not suffer. Please consider this. While your heart will still ache, your suffering may ease a bit with the support to which you deserve as the mother of his child. God Bless and I hope this helps. I will pray for you.

    • I am so sorry for U & your Son. I Know What U Are Going. Thru! I Was A Single Mom & Left My Cheating, Lying Husband When My Daughter Was 2. He Never Payed Child Support So I Supported Her Myself. She Is A Wonderful Wife, Mother & I Have 2 Grandchildren, I Am Truly Blessed.

Grant that we may receive the favor which we now petition. We ask this through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

    (say 7 Our Fathers, 7 Hail Marys and 7 Glory be to the Fathers with
    the invocation “St. Peregrine, pray for us.”)

  28. May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be adored, glorified, loved and preserved now and forever. Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in you.

    The most Sacred Heart of Jesus I confide this intention to You| state your specific request or intention here!

    but not mine but your Holy Will be done.
