Lord, Hear Our Prayers

Please continue to keep my daughter, Kennedy, in your daily prayers! I pray for God's merciful & powerful healing hands on her so that she will have complete healing from the Pemphigus Foliacious (skin condition) & the blisters/sores that are on her face. I pray that God continue to keep her immune system healthy & strong as well as her self-esteem. I pray that God will help me not to get discouraged when I don't see her sores/blisters healing fast enough. I know God's got his timing for her healing. I pray that the Blood of Jesus will heal her. Please Lord, help me with my concerns with the doctors potentially putting my daughter back on oral steroids for this condition. I feel like this was the culprit of the skin condition. I pray that IF she does get back on it, that it will work, with no side effects, no allergic reaction & do its benefits and heal what needs to be healed & not activate/reactivate her victory scars from the blisters on her body that she has conquered. Please Oh God, send healing, protection, peace & serenity through my family, especially my daughter Kennedy. I pray in Jesus' name. AMEN!

Please pray for my pension disability case, that it will be reconsidered, approved and removed from the office of administrative law before my court dates April 27 & 28, 2015. I'm still in pain after 2 surgeries and 10 epidural injections. I can't afford a lawyer and I'm terrified to defend myself in court. Please pray that Our Lord will guide the judge and deputy assigned to my case to see the truth in my medical records. Please pray that the judge will decide in my favor before my court dates. I'm tired, stressed and exhausted but my faith remains strong. I believe in the power of prayers. Amen.

My left hand was injured in 2/2014 at work. I hired an attorney to negotiate with my employer's insurance company after being cutoff twice for physical hand therapy. Please pray for the attorney to negotiate the best possible outcome. If physical therapy is reinstated, please pray I will get an appointment with a hand therapist more interested in healing than money from insurance company. If physical therapy is reinstated, I only would like full range of motion on my dominant hand left hand restored. I am not interested in money. Please pray against discrimination. I did not abuse medical resources or take any time off for my injury. Please pray for Ryan for salvation, MLZ, his mother for rededication or salvation. MLZ, Ryan's mother does not know what to do with her son. MLZ did not teach her children about God despite MLZ's church upbringing. MLZ's spiritual condition is unknown. Ryan attended Catholic school, paid for by Ryan's deceased grandmother. Ryan has epilepic seizures uncontrolled by medication. Ryan attended three years of college, one semester of vocational school, but fails to complete due to uncontroled epilepic seizures. Ryan lives at home, depends on his mother for rides. Ryan's doctors are attempting to wean Ryan's current medication for a different one. Please pray for wisdom for the doctors treating Ryan.

My name is Elizabeth. Please forgive my Spanglish. I truly think that God has a way to do things. I have a young adult child named, Angie, 22 years old. She is back home now after leaving 6 months ago to live with an older boyfriend who she met after a couple of weeks at the bar where she works. My husband and I never liked the idea of her working in a bar but she all of the sudden started doing things that seemed crazy to my husband and I. First she decided to get a loan in a bank to get augmentation surgery, then all of the sudden, I knew that she already saw a surgeon and already had a surgery appointment. Then she went to a school for 2 weeks to study bar tending and started working in a bar where all the real craziness started. She started coming late at first, then sometimes she was coming home late, so then when my husband and I tried to talk to her about her attitude and her lifestyle, so she decided to leave one day while I was working. I came home and she was gone. I felt like I wanted to die and kill myself. My beautiful daughter that was dedicated at church when she was a baby, and was coming to church and even taught children Bible classes, now started drinking, working seven days a week, two jobs, day and night to support the police officer boyfriend of 30 years old. Meanwhile she stopped the community college. I prayed so hard and talked to all the pastors that I could talk to, while inside I felt like an impending doom thinking the worse, like maybe she is dead. I knew there was a gun at their place and I knew my daughter had a short temper. My daughter finally came to me last month after almost 6 months away from home and told me that she had money problems and that she also broke up with the boyfriend. I told her that she could come home, help her pay the bills and of course pay it back, but I let her get away by accepting that she still could to go out whenever she wanted. Out of desperation I told her okay, but it was getting out of hand again and everyday at night she would leave home at 10 and come back 3 or 4 or 5 or 6 am, next day. I was afraid to be strong with her and I finally had to and told her that it was important to respect her body and her parents coming home early and not going out every day. She is now so much better, she is taking online classes to be a veterinarian but the temptation in her is too much. She has all these bar friends always calling her to go there and and I can tell that she wants to do it. She was doing this for six while living with the police officer. He found her conveniently these jobs, and my daughter would still all day long and work and be up all night long. Her body got used to. Now at home for a months I am working with her and she is even trying to get a day time job. I am praying every day and all the time because I believe in the power of Jesus. I am human too and I have my days when I feel weak and tired because I am always thinking how to handle this situation. People tell me that I have no life and this problem is consuming me, but she is my daughter, I can't give up and I trust in the Lord, I have faith in Jesus name. My husband just watches and not say much. The thing is that my daughter is back with the old boyfriend who used to date for couple of years who verbal abuses her and she is still working at the bars. I am praying for her to find a day time job, that she continuous school, leave the boyfriend, learn to be humble, but most importantly come back to the Lord. I also need a prayer for financial help because when she came back I had to pay all her debts. Thank you and God bless you. Mom

Please remember me always in your every first Friday Mass for nine times and your rosary prayers and meditations.
