Tuesday Prayer Requests (Commemoration of James Weldon Johnson)

Father, we pray for your holy Catholic Church;
That we all may be one.
We pray for our friends in Christ:

Grant that every member of the Church may truly and humbly serve you;
That your Name may be glorified by all people.

  • From Prison Fellowship: “Please pray for my best friend Sarah and her precious 9 month old baby Jack,” writes Tammy. “Sarah’s baby’s daddy is in jail. Matt does not appear to be changed at all by jail. He’s blaming, feeling sorry for himself and writing Sarah messed up letters. She is raising a baby! “She doesn’t work, lives with her Dad and struggles with her own demons, as everyone does. She is doing best she can. Pray that Matt will begin to have spiritual awakening. Pray that in the short time he has God will grant him self knowledge and humility. Pray that Matt and Sarah find Jesus. Sarah could use spiritual awakening too. Give her tolerance, knowledge and courage to do the things she needs to do for her and Jack.”

We pray for all bishops, priests, and deacons;
That they may be faithful ministers of your Word and

evermore; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
