Please join me praying to God so that I may find a good spouse. I already have someone in mind I want to approach but I pray she is the right person. I have been praying that I meet a girl that has the virtues of our Blessed Mother and that I might grow in virtue and live virtues like St. Joseph; that my family be like the Holy Family.

I work in an insurance company but need to find another job - desperately, because the insurance business cannot sustain my marriage. I need to settle down in a new house.

Praying for health in mind, soul and body.

For God's grace and blessings and for all those who need my prayers/have asked me to pray for them.

I will also keep all of you in mind in your needs as well.

Please pray for these intentions which are all linked. I believe that by your prays and mine, God will grant these request faster.

Thanks and may God bless you all.

Please pray for our son who recently lost a job he loved. Pray that he is able to get unemployment benefits until he can find something else. He is so distraught as he recently became engaged to be married.

Thank you for any prayers for him. He is a good person and is so depressed. God bless you.

Let's pray for one another that we all experience the security and abundance that God can give to us if we are open to it. May we all experience a positive surge in locating work that is good for us. May we receive abundance and prosperity as is our God-given right. May our work be blessed and our minds be open to God's wishes for us.

May God guide my career. May I be ready to accept new work and to do my very best. May I bring in great clients and create an income that supports my needs--and may I strive to increase my means.

My the building in which I reside be healed completely and may all rifts mend and be solved soon. May we bring in great new neighbors in our future as a collective. May those who give steadily be acknowledged in a positive manner and may those who do not give be guided to contemplation and reflection by God. Help me to forgive those neighbors who are troublesome and a burden in my unique apartment building. Help us to reach an accord. Help me to learn to forgive others who know not what they do--and to not judge others as harshly as I have.

May God help my sister and my brother to heal. May our brother become a real brother to us both before it is too late. May the recent contretemps lead to healing and new beginnings as siblings.

Hi my name is Robert. I am 43 years old and I live in Albuquerque,New Mexico,USA. I wish for my last name to remain private. A few years ago I put something on my face that was homemade and supposed to be good for the skin. It actually caused a small tiny bit of damage back then but over the years the skin on my face has gotten worser and worser. Now I have some scars,many deep skin craters, blemishes, imperfections, uneven skin layers. No job or insurance at this time.I am crushed by this. Please pray for a miracle on the skin on my face. Pray for God to take away the scars, deep skin craters, blemishes, imperfections, uneven skin layers, off the skin on my face and to make them vanish and disappear in Jesus name. Pray for all the damage done to be undone and for the skin on my face to become complete and whole again like in the past. I feel very sad and depressed over this and I dont know how much longer I can hold on. Please pray for me and send to others to pray for me. Thanks, I appreciate it.

St. Joseph, please pray for me and my family because we are really having a hard time now coping up with our daily sustenance. I'd like to thank God for the blessings especially for my kids who are all honors in their own levels. I also pray for strength and also guidance for our daily task in this life. I can't work now because i don't have teeth yet and for me to have them fixed, i need a large amount. I also thank God for the good health now since me and my husband are both sick, very sick.

We will soon be commemorating the death of my beloved father come March 23. Please pray for his soul!
