Prayer request for a friend



Please pray for a friend and colleague of mine in my parish’s youth commission, who has a large cancerous lump on her neck, and the cancer has manifested already in her tongue.

Thank you.


Hey guys, could you please pray for my very good friend. Her mum has just died. She was very young and had only been ill for a week so it’s a massive shock to everyone. Thank you!!!

Small prayer request.


Hey guys. I had surgery on Thursday and recovery is being really hard on my body and emotions. The doctor said everything looks healthy but I’m in a lot of pain and struggling to stay positive during all of this.

I also have a second surgery sometime in July. Date TBD. 

I’d really appreciate any prayers you could send my way. Thanks.

Lovely Loretta is my daughter. I appreciate your prayers.

Urgent Prayer Request: Convent Surrounded, Death Appears Near

I got this from a Facebook friend, a message from a Dominican in a convent in Mosul. They are being surrounded, death may well be imminent. Here is the translation:

The following is a rough translation of a message received today from a Dominican who in a convent in Mosul:

Bad news. I write you in a critical and apocalyptic situation of violence in Mosul. Most of the inhabitants of the city have already abandoned their houses and fled into the villages and are sleeping in the open without anything to eat or drink. Many thousands of armed men from the Islamic Groups of Da’ash have attacked the city of Mosul for the last two days. They have assassinated adults and children. The bodies have been left in the streets and in the houses by the hundreds, without pity. The regular forces and the army have also fled the city, along with the governor. In the mosques, they cry “Allah Akbar, long live the Islamic State.” Qaraqosh is overflowing with refugees of all kinds, without food or lodging. The check points and the Kurdish forces are blocking innumerable refugees from entering Kurdistan. What we are living and what we have seen over the last two days is horrible and catastrophic. The priory of Mar Behnam and other churches fell into the hands of the rebels this morning… . and now they have come here and entered Qaraqosh five minutes ago, and we are now surrounded and threatened with death … . pray for us. I’m sorry that I can’t continue … They are not far from our convent … .
Don’t reply… .

Please pray for me.


I honestly feel so worthless right now. I have never felt this horrible in my life before. I cannot handle this pain to the point I can’t even offer it up. My heart is literally throbbing right now.

I feel so ugly, dirty, empty, and worn.

Please God, help me.

Praying for all who feel this way.

Prayer Request for a Baby



So I’m at the hospital and just met a little girl name Nevaeh; which is Heaven spelled backwards. She has a twin sister with the name Heaven…

Her brain wasn’t fully developed, so it’s been causing her some problems; but she’s hanging in there.

Please pray for that precious little girl.

My friend is 5 months pregnant and has just found out that there is a complication with her pregnancy.

And protection for the baby? Thank you!!
