Could you please post a prayer for my oldest son? Just last week, he started having physical problems, the kind that always say ‘see a doctor immediately!’ He went and, so far, the first tests yielded a negative. Which is good. The doctor and specialist both said if things get better over the next couple weeks, then it’s likely nothing serious. We’d very much like things to get better over the next couple weeks (or heck, days), and it be nothing serious. So prayers for him and his healing would be appreciated. His name is Charlie.
Father, hear our prayer for Charlie that whatever is wrong will right itself with the help of the Lord, the Spirit of Life. Grant complete health to him in body, soul, and spirit. Give grace, wisdom, understanding, knowledge, skill and compassion to his caregivers, and grace, peace, faith, and strength to him and all who love him. Mother Mary and St. Luke, pray for him. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

mark my family could use some prayers please. my #1 son’s, who got married a month ago, father-in-law has stopped cancer treatment, he can no longer swallow.

It is all so sad.
Father, we ask that all would occur according to your Providential will for the good of all concerned and the glory of your Name through Christ our Lord. Mother Mary and St. Joseph, pray that this man would have the grace of a happy death and that these couples would have all the graces of the sacrament of matrimony. Give grace, strength, peace, faith, hope and love to all who love these folks. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

First of all, I apologize for my poor english… it is not my native language.
I’m a portuguese catholic writer. I try my best to write interesting novels, conveying solid orthodox values. I really wanted to be an instrument of God’s grace, to stop the growing secularization that my country is now facing.
Finally, a publisher showed interest in one of my books.
It is going to be released this June 29th.
I would appreciate your prayers, that God may grant success in this endeavour.
Father, hear his prayer and prosper the work of his hands to the glory of your Name. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Mother Mary and St. Francis de Sales, patron of writers, pray for him!
My reader’s name, by the way, is Pedro Gabriel. If you happen to read Portuguese, do check out his book when it is released!
Finally, may God grant eternal rest to the soul of Nadine Brown, through Christ our Lord. Mother Mary, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen!
