This is our prayer wall – a place where prayer requests are submitted and posted so that we can share in the blessing of praying for one another.
May 15, 2017. A hundred years from now, it will not matter what type of job I held, what type of house I lived in or what kind of car I drove, but the world may be a better place because I made a difference in the life of a child.” anonymous. Today as we rejoice in the many graduation ceremonies from kindergarten to college – we know we have made a difference in the life of a child. Yet we look at the children denied an education and we realize that these children and their families continue in a cycle of poverty, abuse, and exploitation. Let us pray, bless and think positively of all children that all may be empowered and given a life of opportunity through education.

Christ is Risen! Please pray for me to discern God’s will for my life. In my heart, I desire a life of celibacy and dedication to Christ in prayer, service, and contemplation. Everyone tells me things like “when you get married” or “you will get married to a good man and have children”, etc. I begin to cry when I hear these now. I try to desire things in the world like a certain job or lifestyle and I cannot. What God’s will is, I want to accept it and for Him to give me courage to live it faithfully whether or not it is celibacy. Please pray for my family.
please pray for my father, for the Lord to trample the snares of the evil one from his life. Also please pray for my mother and husband. For all of us to continue to grow in the fear of God. Please pray for our extended family so that they may know the Lord as our God and Savior. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
April 15, 2017. Prayer Day for Children. Through the efforts of many, we now have a yearly observance: The International Day for Street Children. We are reminded of the millions of throwaway street children worldwide – children with no schooling, no healthcare; children in prostitution and armed conflict; children called vagrants, discarded and unwanted. All children need acceptance, love, helping hands, encouragement and hope. You and I and all people of the world must join together to make a better tomorrow through positive thought, prayer and blessing of all children. “We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget he is someone today.” Stacy Tauscher. Fr. Don Bosco also reminds us – “It is not enough to love children. It is necessary that they are aware they are loved.”
