I would like to ask you for your prayers again. I am so very exhausted and almost insane. Please pray that the Lord will deeply heal every moment of my life with His unconditional love. Let me know with all of my heart of His infinite mercy in all my sins. That I may start a new joyful life, after many years of terrible torture, of dense darkness, deep guilt, and very strong diabolic oppressions, despite my conversion many years ago. Only His grace can help me. Thank you very much. May God richly bless you. Jana

Please pray that I not lose my faith in this moment of great pain and suffering. I'm 20 years old. I struggle with same-sex attraction. I'm trying to live in chastity (and I have failed on it). My parents have big marriage problems and are possibly divorcing, and my family is being torn apart because of this. Pray for me, I feel God has abandoned me. My prayer life has become so dry and I feel my future is hopeless. Pray for me, my parents, my family and all wounded families and marriages. Pray that God may heal my wounds and that I could see His light in this darkness that I feel.

Almighty Lord, I surrender my interview with Golden Sands Dubai. Lord, please help me to do well in the interview. Give me the blessings to face the interview without nervousness, to be more focused with the questions. Enlighten my mind to think carefully and answer the questions. Please have control over my mind, tongue and words that I speak. Help me to get through the interview in flying colors. Jesus, my faith, help me. Lord, help our family to forget the differences and get along well with each other. Stop our egos. Lord, please let the NOC’s get signed soon and let our settlement come out very soon. Help us Lord Jesus. We need your guidance in our daily lives.

My name is Dwi and I am thirsty. Please, I beg you to pray for me. I'm very, very poor in this life from financial hardship, bad health and unfinished study. I'm in a very difficult situation. I have problems with finances and employment. I hope I can get many, many graces and miracles and find a job. I want to have some business to support our family life. I hope to be delivered soon from my problems with finances and employment. Pray for me so God have mercy on me and my big family. Please remember me always at every first Friday Mass for nine times and your rosary prayers and meditations.

1. Please pray that God will get rid of all bed bugs in my house and they never return. I've been fighting them for over five months, and I can't get rid of them without God. When you think you might have gotten rid of them, they return. In Jesus' name pray God removes all bed bugs from the house I live in and they never return. Pray no bed bug from my house ends up in anyone else's house. 2. I'm 43 and never been in a relationship. Please pray God brings me a female companion for a loving relationship in Jesus' name. Amen. Pray God brings me a relationship that is exceedingly abundantly above what I can imagine, in Jesus' name. Amen.
