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.

Prayer request for individuals and families struggling with addiction. May God’s strength and victory over addiction be with you. No matter what you are going through, you are never alone. Prayer to God is a strong armor. God is bigger than any addiction. This prayer request is especially for M.A. and his family, and particularly his son. We are human, but God is everything. God is our helper and provider of restoration, rest and relief. Be open to God’s help and not your own understanding and strength. Let God have his way. You nor your family can do this alone, and it is ok. God has enough grace and mercy for everyone and everything. God knows how to help you. God’s got this. Amen.

Heavenly Father I ask that you please place your healing hand on our marriage and unite us. Provide my husband, Felipe, freedom in mind, body, heart, soul, and spirit from everything that is not of you Jesus. Spill your precious blood from your most Sacred Heart on us and cleanse us with the water from your most holy wounds. Join the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary with my husband's heart where he will never be separated from your love and mercy again. Please remove the spiritual blindness from his eyes. I pray he only sees, hears, speaks, thinks and desires Jesus. Please bring back the amazing, kind, caring, loving, positive, encouraging, thoughtful, family and Christ centered man. The love we have is pure, honest, faithful, and true. The promise we made in front of our family, friends, and Jesus is a true, honest commitment. This dark cloud over our marriage is what is deciding the division between us. Please undo all of the knots that the enemy has created in my husband's mind and heart,our love, marriage and in our domestic church. Please flood my husband with the Holy Spirit so he is revealed the truth. I pray Felipe walks towards the way, the truth and the life towards the light of our Lord Jesus Christ. Convert our families and unite us all in your love where we will never be separated from your love again.
