I ask for prayers for physical healing and deliverance from the attacks of Satan. I have the problem of persecution in the workplace, do not make me work. Now I have to live in seclusion. Business executives, managers and employees do their best to hinder me and hurt me, slander, defame me. They are also destroying the social life of my family. Please prayer the Lord look kindly and mercifully on my family. We do not ever fail to help, including financially. We need His blessing and His protection with these bad people and against the evil that stirs them. God gave us the gift of physical health and a new job. Unfortunately, the physical pain prevents us from participating in the daily Mass and adoration, to prayer in community. I hope that God will give us physical healing so that we can devote only to serve Him and Mary. Nothing is impossible to the Lord Jesus. Lord heal all that is ill in us, forgive our sins. Thanks.

Please pray that I find a full-time teaching position at a Catholic school where I will be respected as a teacher, staff member and not harassed or accused of doing things that I have not done. Please pray that a principal of one school I subbed at 2 weeks ago stops discriminating against me and that she stops accusing me of doing things I have not done. Please pray that false accusers stop accusing, and please pray that gossip or false complaints never destroy my teaching career or life. Please pray that I find A PRACTICING CATHOLIC SPOUSE. Lately, I have been feeling tired, frustrated, lonely, accused of things that I have not done and this has increased my level of anxiety, stress and worry. Let Jesus guide me and watch over me. May Jesus protect me from false accusers, false accusations, gossip, sin, evil and anxiety/worry. Please also pray for the health, wellness and safety of my immediate and extended family. I really need you to PRAY FOR MY INTENTIONS AND PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR THEM FOR AS LONG AS YOU CAN. Please feel free to forward my prayer requests to others and please know that you are in my prayers as well as I pray to God for all those who serve him and trust in him on a daily basis. -- Magda

I guess I feel emotionally trapped because I don't have a home where I feel wanted. I am dealing with some mental issues and I have become a burden to my dad. He is a senior and he can't mentally help me anymore. I wish I had a place I could stay and get some guidance about what to do ... I feel very overwhelmed. Thank you for your prayers.
