I have a prayer request because I am so confused about the death of a man that from a distant, seemed to have it all, but took his own life in the past week. It is such a shock. I have found thru mutual friends that he had battled depression. To the outside world, his reflection was the ultimate great guy, kind, friendly, great family. His obituary expounded these qualities. He didn’t grow up Catholic, but must have converted over the years. Please pray for his soul and for comfort to his family and friends.
Father, hear our prayer for mercy for this man and for the grace of faith, hope and love in your Son Jesus Christ for my reader and all who are coping with his death. Mother Mary, pray for them!

Father, hear our prayer for this boy’s complete healing in body, soul, and spirit. Give his caregivers grace, knowledge, wisdom, understanding, skill, compassion, and the proper technology to assist in his healing and give him and all who love him grace, peace, strength, consolation, faith, hope, and love. Mother Mary and St. Luke, pray for them. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen!
My son Luke asks your prayers for this friend of his who got threatening emails and has now disappeared. If you live in Seattle, please keep an eye out for his car.
Father, return him to his family safe and sound and protect him from all harm. Mother Mary, St. Michael, and his guardian angel, pray for him and protect him. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Finally, your continue prayers for my mom would be appreciated. Thanks, folks!
