Lord, Hear Our Prayers

Please pray for my brother George. He has been out of work for over a year and is worried about finding a job. He is a programmer and the technology sector has been hit hard by the recession. He is also worried about finding work because of his age (he's 59). Please pray for him to find a job. Thank you.

For the Holy Father, for the conversion of poor sinners and relief for the souls in purgatory. For the conversion of the people of Russia, the United States, Israel, Indonesia and their descendants forever; to consecrate Russia to God. To ask God for world peace forever. For current and future world leaders; to ask God so that they may guide the world to world peace everlasting. For the Juandi family, living and deceased, to ask God for the salvation of our souls and bodies forever. Thank you Lord Jesus.

Dear Father, please pray for the safety and mental stamina of all the single people of our diocese. Please do not let them get negatively influenced into thinking that being single for too long is a mortal sin, because it truly is not. Please do not let them be forced into an unwanted relationship for fear that God will love them less if they don’t — or worse that fellow parisioners will love them less if they don’t. Please give a listening ear and open mind to priests, nuns and other religious when hearing concerns from single people who just want to continue doing what they feel God is calling them to do. In Jesus’ name with praise and thanksgiving, Amen.
