Prayer Requests

Prayer Requests January 6, 2012

I’d like to ask for prayers for the Strauss family here in Seattle. A couple of years ago, they lost their little girl Gloria. Last week, they lost their son Anthony. Please pray for these children their family, who have borne it heroically.

Beloved daughter-in-law Tasha, mother of the Cuteness, writes:

Please pray for friends of friends who have an 8 month old baby and are struggling to pay their rent/relying on financial assistance from their church; they’ve just found out they’re pregnant again and are very afraid. This understandably hits close to home for me – please pray for God’s peace and providence!

Father, grant your Providence to this struggling family as they strive to keep faith with you. And help Luke and Tasha as well. Mother Mary and St. Joseph the Worker, pray for them. We ask this through Christ our Lord, amen!

Please pray for my friend who is expecting her first child. She was due Feb. 1 but this week her blood pressure spiked and her midwife has decided they will induce on Sunday night. Please pray for a safe delivery of mom and baby, and for peace and calm for my friend and her husband. Thank you!

Father, hear our prayer through Christ our Lord. Mother Mary, pray for her and her baby!

Very sad news as my classmate’s sister and boyfriend’s bodies were found earlier today. It looks like this accident happened on Tuesday or Wednesday night. Please pray for all three victims’ souls, for their families, for healing, and (though it’s as yet undetermined whether alcohol played a role here) for all those who find themselves tempted to get behind the wheel when they’ve had too much to drink.

Father, hear our prayer. May they rest in peace and may all who loved them find healing. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Mother Mary, pray for all involved in this tragedy.

I’m converting to Catholicism. All my friends and family go to the nearest baptist church. Emotional roller-coaster ride. Sentences becoming terse. Please pray.

Father, help your servant come to full communion with your Church and help find the best way to love his friends and family. Send him the support he needs from your saints and surround him with friends in the Church. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Mother Mary, pray for him and angels of God protect him from the assaults of the devil.
