Welcome to the Prayer Corner!

In this space, readers are invited to share their prayer intentions and give thanks for prayers answered.?When requesting prayer, please only list the first name or first initial to protect privacy. You can also simply?mention that you have a special intention.

Each Monday as we begin a new week, we will open a new Prayer Corner.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
–Philippians 4:6-7

Thank you for your prayerful intercession for all of the intentions listed here.

  1. I’m overflowing with prayer intentions this week. Most immediately, they include:

    A very important private intention
    J, a child who suffered a very serious injury
    S, who suffered a major illness this weekend and has been away from her faith
    D and A, for continued healing

    Looking forward to praying with all of you this week!

  2. We just got home from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, where our son had his every-3-month diabetic checkup. I would like to pray for all the children I heard crying in exam rooms and for all the parents I saw sitting with children in waiting rooms. It’s grueling. It’s heartbreaking. May God heal the sick and give strength to those who care for them.

  3. Asking for prayers that I go into labor really soon. Like rift now. 😉 I am 41 1/2 weeks with #10, and baby just seems to be really comfortable. Please pray for a safe delivery, healthy baby, and somewhat smooth transition in our house! Thank you. I will pray for you all as well.

  4. I would like to ask for prayers for my dad as he goes into surgery this morning to remove a cancerous polyp. Thank you!

  5. I love this idea…thanks for doing this, Barb! 🙂

    My intentions are many and varied, but on my heart in a special way:
    – J, who was injured earlier this week and needs prayers
    – R, who is miserable at work and needs some guidance

    I’m also praying in thanksgiving for the work I’m blessed to do and for the people I come in contact with.

  6. This is an absolutely beautiful idea. 🙂 I love praying for others. My intentions this week are:

    For my children, who are both celebrating their name patron feasts this month. That they always remain close to Christ and His Church, and discern His will for their future vocation.

    And for a project that I’m working on, for God’s will.

    Thank you!
