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.
AL:I was in your same spot in 2006 except I was maradried and praeprading to have chiladdren, but i could bring myself to raise them in what I saw chaos. My husadband and I started seeading a maradriage theradaadpist. Although she was not catholic, she underadstood and embraced how imporadtant my faith was in my life. Foladlowading are some of the things that I exprienced, and it might help you.1. I had to disadcuss a lot of memadoadries that I did not relaize how badly they were hurtading me. When I was a child, my paradents fought physadiadcally and veradbally. My dad was a womadanadizer and left us sevaderal times for difadferadent women. My mom would remind me from the earadliadest memadory 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, lookading at him and askading him what I needed. I simadply needed him to LOVE me. I enviadsioned him embracading me and caressading my hair. Telling me that everyadthing was going to be ok. I kid you not, I cried and sobbed a lot. I grieved for the childadhood I never had, for the litadtle girl that neede to be loved and feel imporadtant in the lives of her paradents. Because of that I have never felt improtant and loved. It is hard for me to mainadtain relaadtionadships with peoadple. The only reaadson I have manadaged to stay with my husadband is because he knows my pain, and he truly loves me unconaddiadtionadally. I have been blessed with the live of Jesus through my husadband.2. I also learned to foradgive my paradents. To underadstand that they had their own wounds , and that they did the best they could with whay they had. In order to foradgive my paradents, I had to expeadriadence that memadory 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 posadiadtives of the expeadriadence. I leanred that every obstaadcle is an opporadtuadnity for growth. After I reflected on it and looked at what posadiadtive I got from it, then I let it go. For examadple, I found that although I resented my father for his negadaadtive atributes, I loved him for his posadiadtive attribadutes: he worked really hard to proadvide finanadcially, he was smart, and he could fix anyadthing. Those are the same attribadutes I disadcovadered made me fall in love with my husadband. I learned that I never wanted to be in a relaadtionadship like my paradents again. I learned that I needed to put the weladfare of my chiladdren in front of my own desires. I learned that everyadthing we choose, includading words, has an effect that is not always temadpoadrary so I choose my words more wisely. Also, foradgive your self. and take care of that inner child that just wants to be loved. Hope thisa0helps
