Tuesday Prayer Requests (Feast of St. Barnabas)

Let me bless almighty God, whose power extends over sea and land, whose angels watch over all. Let me study sacred books to calm my soul: I pray for peace, kneeling at heaven’s gates. Let me do my daily work, gathering seaweed, catching fish, giving food to the poor. Let me say my daily prayers, sometimes chanting, sometimes quiet, always thanking God. Delightful it is to live on a peaceful isle, in a quiet cell, serving the King of kings. (Prayer of St. Columba)
Father, we pray for your holy Catholic Church;
That we all may be one.

Grant that every member of the Church may truly and humbly serve you;
That your Name may be glorified by all people.
We pray for all bishops, priests, and deacons;

Sacraments.

Give us grace to do your will in all that we undertake;
That our works may find favor in your sight.
From Prison Fellowship: “Please pray for my husband, Louis, whose son, Jon (23) will be sentenced in July,” writes Wendy. “He’s been in jail about 18 months after causing a fatal accident while under the influence. “I’m sure you can think of many things to pray,” she continues. “Louis is so sad some days, and others angry and others ‘OK’ … but the pain is never far from him, the ache and mourning of dreams that won’t be. Jon is facing 6-30 years depending on how tough they are and if they consider him a habitual offender (he is).” “We serve in ministry,” Wendy shares, “and it’s been very difficult for Louis when his heart’s just not in it. I understand that. Pray that God will be very visible to Louis, that He will comfort him in ways that go deep into his heart, and that Jon will hear God’s voice and know that it’s Him. He hasn’t really been very interested in the past, other than to debate. Thank you very much for your prayers.”
Have compassion on those who suffer from any grief or trouble;
That they may be delivered from their distress
