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.

A soul arms itself by prayer for all kinds of combat.
–St. Faustina Kowalska

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

  1. I am not sure this is the correct place to leave my prayer request, but I would like to ask for prayers for my sons, age 25 and 17. My husband and I have done all we could to raise them Catholic and in a holy, loving home. Our oldest is not attending Mass and is living with his girlfriend. Our youngest is going to Mass because he has to. Both are confirmed. I know this is so common but it is breaking our hearts. It feels like, despite our best efforts, the culture is winning and we are losing our children. Please pray for my boys and all young people who don’t seem to understand the beauty of their faith.
