Lord, Hear Our Prayers

Prayers for the intercession of Blessed Stanley Rother for the healing of my brother's heart and spirit. Mike has severe ventricular weakness, a blocked stent in his left coronary artery, severe mitral regurgitation. He has developed chronic heart failure with very limited activity endurance. This is a previously active man who very much enjoyed his hobby of woodworking and was an active parishioner at Sacred Heart of Mary in Barling. We go this Friday, Sept. 29 to meet his cardiologist in Oklahoma City to plan various procedures to improve his heart function. He cannot tolerate open heart surgery, but we are hoping various options will help. Bishop Taylor, please pray with us for his healing. Thank you.

God bless us. Padre Pio pray for us: Specially for my wife and I for some great communication and healing and reconnection. That we both will put down pride ”to the side”. Specifically that we will get to do a marriage encounter weekend in the next 6 months. For our son J who is going through a divorce, that he will make great choices, and stay healthy. Also that we will be able to support him in any way, as much as possible. And his ex-wife (who filed) too. For his new girlfriend L who is in the military getting training in health care. Lastly that he would go back to church weekly. As well as our two daughters (in their 20s) as they makes choices, especially for whom to marry: Daughter E that she would successfully complete her post graduate degree and then get a good job to pay off her loans and get her “financial house” in order. That she would bring in and welcome good influences in her life specifically finding a good mentor for her. And that she would go back to the Catholic Church weekly. For daughter M (who is a single parent going to college) that she will make great choices, and stay healthy. Also that we will be able to support her in every way as much as possible. For her to assertively move away from the bad influences in her life and that she would find her soulmate in God’s time (Kairos). Also, that her interaction and relationship with the father of her child will be a whole lot better than expected. I also pray specifically for him (E) in his spiritual life. Lastly that she would also go back to the Catholic Church weekly. Thank you in advance. We will pray for your intentions.

Please pray for my 16 years of marriage with Ben. He has mentally separated from me. He says I have controlled him for all these years and is filled with anger and hate. He has asked for divorce papers now. Although he sleeps in the living room, he doesn't communicate with me amd this has also effected our teenager. He has started talking with a girl and says he has no feelings or love for me. Please pray for my marriage restoration and reconcillation with the help of the Holy Spirit. — Mel
