Prayer Corner: July 20, 2015



Prayer Corner CM FB

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.

For more opportunities to pray for and with our readers, visit our Prayer Request Forum.

  1. This week I pray for:
    – the repose of the soul of C and for his grieving family
    – all children with diabetes and the families who care for them
    – a safe journey for all who are traveling this week to attend the Catholic Writers Guild conference

  2. My intentions this week:
    – for my colleagues
    – for a difficult work situation for someone I love
    – for those who long for children but have not yet been blessed with them
    – for those who suffer from the pain of loss
    – for my children, that they remain sane in the face of my summer chaotic mayhem mind 🙂

  3. I’d be so grateful if you kept my brother in my prayers. He just learned that he’s got advanced stage cancer. He and his wife have three little boys.
