Prayer Requests

 

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;
That they may be faithful ministers of your Word and
Sacraments.

We pray for all who govern and hold authority in the nations of the world;
That there may be justice and peace on the earth.

Give us grace to do your will in all that we undertake;
That our works may find favor in your sight.

Have compassion on those who suffer from any grief or trouble;
That they may be delivered from their distress.

Give to the departed eternal rest.
Let light perpetual shine upon them.

We praise you for your saints who have entered into joy;
May we also come to share in your heavenly kingdom.

Let us pray for our own needs and those of others.

Please post a comment if you would like to be remembered in prayer (should you have a confidential prayer request, please feel free to send it here). Your request will be shared with my prayer partners and they will be welcome to email you if you choose. Updates are recommended after a few weeks so we know how you’re doing.

We do have a few guidelines:

  1. Requests for physical or emotional healing or other needs that are more generalized or “unspoken” are welcome. There is nothing harmful about protecting one’s privacy if they only want the fact they need prayer publicized, but not the specifics. God knows their needs regardless.
  2. Do not give out anyone’s email address, phone number or address in the requests. It is not necessary to give out last names. In sensitive situations, consider just identifying the person by their initials.
  3. Please avoid giving out TMI (Too Much Information) in your requests and remember anything you post in the comments is visible to the public. Try to keep your request within the 1-3 sentence range.
  4. Christians of multiple denominational backgrounds, orientations/identities, theological beliefs, family situations, nationalties, etc.  follow this blog and may request prayer. If you don’t agree with someone’s request, please pray however you feel lead and don’t attack their beliefs, personal situation, etc.
  5. No spam, no personal attacks on other visitors or other drama.
  6. If you are facing a situation that involves child/elderly/disabled person or animal abuse, please report it to the appropriate authorities.
