Prayer Corner: August 24, 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.

We do not have to talk very much in order to pray well. We know that God is there in His holy tabernacle; let us open our hearts to Him; let us rejoice in His Presence: This is the best prayer.
–St. John Vianney

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.
