You are welcome to submit a prayer request to be posted on the diocese’s online Prayer Book of Intentions. These prayers are offered up at the noon Mass celebrated by Bishop Anthony B. Taylor and other priests on Wednesdays at St. John Catholic Center in Little Rock. We invite you to also pray for these intentions at your parish, school, religious community or prayer group.


Lord, Hear Our Prayers

Please pray for my 25 year old daughter. She has a brain tumor and the prognosis is not good. But I know Christ can perform miracles. Please pray for her as she has two small children and a family that loves her tremendously. Please also pray for me (her dad) and others to have the strength and courage to face this struggle.

Calling on my fellow angels I'm requesting your prayers in hope I can find some hope for the future. I have four son's. Two have a horrible drug addiction. Joey and Philip. Please help me pray that they will live another way and see a new beginning. I have done all I can to help my sons. I can't take the pain I have lived in for years. I suffer from severe depression and will shut down for days sleeping to escape what I have been called upon to do in life. My heart is broken in pieces over my two babies. Please make it stop or they will die. Please pray not only for my sons but, for all heroin users. So many young lives are being wiped out. Please pray that as polio was cured a cure for my sons and all will be found. Please call on the saints with me. My oldest son, Anthony, is very unhappy with his wife Gina and has considered ending it. Give him strength to find the best for his family and what the future may hold. Addiction again is the devil here. Not this son but, Gina has a horrible gambling problem. My son can't live like this. He does the right thing everyday working providing for his two daughters 4 and 5. So precious my granddaughters are. Thank You Jesus. My son Michael is wonderful. Thank you Jesus, he's a beautiful human being. Prayers that will blanket me with peace and hope for whatever time is left in this life. I have struggled to maintain a megar lifestyle for me and my sons raising them and thank you Jesus for my wonderful family. Please help my sons Thank You.

Oh loving Lord Jesus, kindly forgive my sins and sins of my parents and siblings. Please save our family. Please give us the grace to live according to your holy will. Please change the hearts of those who are not turned to you. Please convert us wholly to you O Lord. Please give us the grace to be holy and give us the grace of perseverance till death. Lord I do not ask for any material gifts, but the gift of eternal life with you forever. Please do not ever forsake us. Jesus please cut off all unholy ties and bondage in my family however strong they might be. Please remove the power of the evil one over my family members and myself. Jesus please cut all the physical, spiritual and ties that divert us from you. In your holy name Jesus, please break all the unholy relationships in our life. Please confirm our souls in your grace. Please write all our names in the Book of Life.

Please pray that I get a dissolution of marriage from the Church from my present husband, George, as soon as possible so that I can have a normal Catholic marriage with my fiancé Jason. The Church is delaying the judgment of my case because there are many annulment cases pending in the Church. I pray that my judgment is made faster by the judge. Amen. Thanks for praying.

Forgiveness. Praises. I pray for healing, restoration, growth and intensified love between this man and I. Heal us internally of the things coming between us, and that can come between us in the future. Grow us together with solid foundation to last. Marriage. Help us to grow in our communication that we don’t discourage one another or discomfort the other in their efforts to open up. Keep the devil away from us with sabotage. Draw us together. Give us the energy, healing and wisdom for intentional pursuit of one another. Help us to be a strong support system for one another. Grant us unbreakable bond that we understand the need to constantly nourish but never doubt. Grow us together. Marriage. Unspoken. Amen.
