Prayer is a conquering and powerful force! We believe just as with the early morning Church, that it is thrrough the power of prayer that situations will change. The bible states in James 5:16 KJV “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”
We take each submitted prayer request serious and will be praying for you. We only ask that when God answers prayer, that you write us or contact us on this website and let us know.
Submit Your Prayer Request
We are also listing prayer requests to further increase the number of Saints both locally, nationally and internationally to actively engage in praying for these requests.
bf4AL:I was in your same spot in 2006 except I was marc2adried and praperc2ading to have chilc2addren, but i could bring myself to raise them in what I saw chaos. My husc2adband and I started seec2ading a marc2adriage therc2adac2adpist. Although she was not catholic, she underc2adstood and embraced how imporc2adtant my faith was in my life. Folc2adlowc2ading are some of the things that I exprienced, and it might help you.1. I had to disc2adcuss a lot of memc2adoc2adries that I did not relaize how badly they were hurtc2ading me. When I was a child, my parc2adents fought physc2adic2adcally and verc2adbally. My dad was a womc2adanc2adizer and left us sevc2aderal times for difc2adferc2adent women. My mom would remind me from the earc2adlic2adest memc2adory that my dad wished she would have blown up with me inside of her the day I was born. She drilled that into my head. I cried a lot when I talked to it. As I talked to it, she had me close my eyes and focus on being in a room with Jesus, lookc2ading at him and askc2ading him what I needed. I simc2adply needed him to LOVE me. I envic2adsioned him embracc2ading me and caressc2ading my hair. Telling me that everyc2adthing was going to be ok. I kid you not, I cried and sobbed a lot. I grieved for the childc2adhood I never had, for the litc2adtle girl that neede to be loved and feel imporc2adtant in the lives of her parc2adents. Because of that I have never felt improtant and loved. It is hard for me to mainc2adtain relac2adtionc2adships with peoc2adple. The only reac2adson I have manc2adaged to stay with my husc2adband is because he knows my pain, and he truly loves me unconc2addic2adtionc2adally. I have been blessed with the live of Jesus through my husc2adband.2. I also learned to forc2adgive my parc2adents. To underc2adstand that they had their own wounds , and that they did the best they could with whay they had. In order to forc2adgive my parc2adents, I had to expec2adric2adence that memc2adory again, I had to step back and not look at it from the view point of the child, but of the adult.3. I also learned to embrace my pain, reflect on the posc2adic2adtives of the expec2adric2adence. I leanred that every obstac2adcle is an opporc2adtuc2adnity for growth. After I reflected on it and looked at what posc2adic2adtive I got from it, then I let it go. For examc2adple, I found that although I resented my father for his negc2adac2adtive atributes, I loved him for his posc2adic2adtive attribc2adutes: he worked really hard to proc2advide financ2adcially, he was smart, and he could fix anyc2adthing. Those are the same attribc2adutes I disc2adcovc2adered made me fall in love with my husc2adband. I learned that I never wanted to be in a relac2adtionc2adship like my parc2adents again. I learned that I needed to put the welc2adfare of my chilc2addren in front of my own desires. I learned that everyc2adthing we choose, includc2ading words, has an effect that is not always temc2adpoc2adrary so I choose my words more wisely. Also, forc2adgive your self. and take care of that inner child that just wants to be loved. Hope thisc2a0helps
