My brother-in-laws sister is now in hospice and she needs prayers. She has been battling cancer for a long time, but things have taking a turn for the worse. Please say a prayer for her. Thanks!
I need your prayers this morning for a personal intention. This is a big day for me, and I need your help.
I need your prayers.
I had a doctors appointment today, and have another one tomorrow. I’m really hoping for a good outcome from the testing at these appointments..
I’m still in a period of dryness, and, while I have been praying, I haven’t had the ability to concentrate very well, and especially having trouble concentrating on spiritual/scripture reading (or any reading past a few lines for that matter).
Some of the lack of concentration could be related to medicines I take, or the mental illness itself. No matter what, I really miss scripture and spiritual reading. I have so many books to read but my concentration is very poor. I am so frustrated.
Lately, I’ve felt like I’m on a neverending down escalator. I’ve been through this before - many times - but not while in a period of spiritual dryness.
Anyway - say a prayer for me. Thank you all!
For my niece. She’s at the emergency room about to get a CT scan. A possible appendicitis. She’s in pain. Thanks in advance for your prayers.
I need your prayers again. Still having trouble getting used to two new medicines, and trying to get off a third medicine at the same time.
Its been very rough on me. I need more patience. When you get a chance please pray for me.
For me. I’m going through a change in medication. I haven’t been sleeping well, and the medicine is aggravating my sleep pattern.
Anyway, pray for me please.
A Prayer to St. Jude for Peace
Through your gentle and powerful ways, St. Jude, I come to know the calming presence of God in my life. I pray that I will find my heart’s quiet places, and that there I will know peace.
For your peace is my peace, St. Jude. And my peace is the peace of those who know me. The peace that calms nations is the same peace that calms my own heart.
Help me, St. Jude, to know that my hope in you is my gift to the world. May God’s steadfast faith in His children lead us to forgiveness, the root of all peace. May St. Jude intercede for my suffering, and for the sufferings of war, sickness, and heartache throughout the world. Amen.
A Prayer to Saint Jude For Hope
God of hope, come to me. Help me to know that your hope is alive in me as I offer kindness, forgiveness, and tenderness to others.
I seek the inner calm that comes from trusting in you. Give me the courage to be aware of your healing presence.
May I trust that St. Jude walks with me in times of trouble, and intercedes on my behalf.
St. Jude, fill my heart with hope. Amen.
There’s a great post going around, “When you see this, reblog and say a prayer for the souls in Purgatory”.
Imagine If everyone prayed Saint Gertrude’s prayer, think of all the souls we could help.
Here’s St. Gertrude’s prayer for the souls in Purgatory:
"Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen."

Prayer for the Virtue of Chastity
Jesus, Fortress of mankind,
You are Immaculate as God and Man!
Bless me with Your infinite graces,
That I may remain in a state of purity.
Strengthen my body, spirit and soul
To continually reflect Your chastity.
Protect my soul in its daily struggles,
Guiding it to ponder on Your Godliness.
Defend me from the forces of evil,
Those that seek to acquire my soul:
I am truly Yours forever and ever.
Holy is my King, the Conqueror of sin!
Act of Contrition
My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good, I have sinned against you, whom I should love above all things. I firmly intend, with your help, to do penance, to sin no more, and to avoid whatever leads me to sin. Our Savior, Jesus Christ, suffered and died for us. In His name, my God, have mercy.
"O Lord, I confess that there is within me so much that is ignoble, selfish, and sinful.
My little house is in ruins. I cannot repair it.
You yourself must come to rebuild it, so that it may be a fit dwelling for you all the days of my life on earth. Amen.”
I want to do your will, show me the path to you that my hands and my heart will only know you. May there only be room for you in my soul and in-kindle in my heart a flame to match like no other.
Our father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day, our daily bread, and for give us our trespasses, as we forgive us who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
