I ask for prayers for my boys. That the chain of addiction be broken with them. I ask for them to open their hearts and spirits to our Lord. That they change their ways and come to HIM with open arms. I rebuke anything that is not from our God that tempts them. That they be covered with HIS Holy blood from the tops of their heads to the bottom of their feet. That they be dressed with the Holy armor of Jesus so that they are ready for the daily battles of life. That they learn to cope with the ups and downs of life by putting all of their faith in GOD. I pray for all the youth that is easily corrupted and swayed to the ways of the world. That the youth return to the one TRUE Church of Jesus Christ. That all the Masses are overflowing with so many people there is no room to sit. I pray for all of those battling cancer especially Jeanette E., who is fighting for her life. Please pray that God heals her body, mind and soul. That this vicious fight not be in vain. That she will help bring others closer to our God with her testimony. In all of this I ask our LORD JESUS CHRIST. I ask Mother Mary to watch over our youth and help guide them towards her Son. That she may whisper in their ear when they are about to do something that Jesus would not approve and lead them out of harms way. Thank you ALL for your prayers. I put my family in GOD's very capable hands. I just ask for the help of my fellow prayer warriors. AMEN!
