Lord, Hear Our Prayers

Please pray to St. Jude and Our Lord, Jesus for my father, Robert. He has been recently diagnosed with ALS. Please pray for his healing or hope that it could possibly be something else. We cannot lose our father and he is not ready to leave us yet. He has taught us how to pray, how to talk to Jesus and how to live faithfully in God. He is our rock and we need him in our lives. He has so much more to offer. Please pray for his healing. Please Lord. Also, please pray for my mother, for she is extremely stressed and overwhelmed. She is trying so hard to make my father happy and comfortable right now but she needs help. Let her accept all the help that is offered and give us all strength. Thank you! AMEN!

I pray for divine intercession for forgiveness, to dismiss this divorce and  quickly reconcile/restore our holy sacred marriage (D&R). I pray that God will open the doors to communication, and forgiveness and knock down the walls to silence, pride, hurt, and anger. This past November, my husband of 6 years came back from his military deployment, completely moved out of the house, and has filed for divorce without any closure or explanation and zero communication. I was also served the divorce papers this past December at work.  I humbly ask all the angels, saints, martyrs, Blessed Mother Mary,  apostles, and Jesus to bind and remove the work of satan, evil spirits, and all negative external influences in our lives and away from our marriage.  Dear Heavenly Father, please deliver our minds, bodies, hearts, souls, and spirits from all hurt/pain, anger/bitterness, hate/malice, pride, selfishness, lying, lust, rebellion/revenge, fear/anxiety, unbelief/doubt, separation, and confusion, and in turn create a spirit of patience, compassion, faith, self-control, confidence, wisdom, clarity, humbleness, forgiveness, joy, grace, hope, integrity, communication, and unending love. O God, please tear down the walls around our hearts and help my husband find/turn to You and the Holy Catholic Church. I humbly pray that the Holy Spirit will dwell and move in my husband's heart, body, soul, spirit, and mind in order for him to be open to see and hear God's message about divorce and marriage reconciliation. Lord please help us to stand firm and put on the Full Armor of God. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen. I miss my husband so much. Please pray my husband will quickly come home so we can start our restored marriage based on the solid rock of Jesus Christ. I begging and praying for a miracle! Please reconcile my marriage and dismiss this divorce and non-existent communication. My heart is aching and breaking daily for my husband. Please pray God will touch and heal his heart and save him. We need peace, grace, and forgiveness. Please save our marriage.

Thanks, Ben

I'm asking for prayers for my mother-in-law Rita who is ill and we don't know what illness she has. She is not able to speak or take a lot of liquid or food by mouth. She has a feeding tube and the doctors believe she may have ALS. My wife is very stressed over it and it's hard to see her like that. I ask God that she may be healed so that our lives can be like they used too. May it be God's will and not ours. Please pray for my mother-in-law and us. Thank you. May God Bless.
