Intercessory Prayer

Let Us Pray

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, we fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, our Mother; to thee we come; before thee we stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer us. Amen.

We pray for...

...Szymon Woznickzka to experience the miraculous healing of Jesus.

...David Danowski, who lost his job, that he has a conversion that brings him back into the Church and that he finds a good new job quickly.

...future disciples of Jesus Christ. May "the love of God be poured into their hearts through the Holy Spirit" (Romans 5:5). May God's wisdom and "nudge to pursue" being a disciple strengthen their confidence.

...Victoria for healing of bursitis and pain taking place in her shoulder muscles since last November. Heavenly Farther, our Divine Physician, may Victoria feel your presence daily and witness your love and healing. All Glory is Yours.

...Frank, who injured his left arm, shoulder and the left side of his rib cage making it very difficult to move about. He has confidence your prayers will help him endure this discomfort until God choose to heal him. Thank you God for your love, healing, and many blessings. All Glory is yours!

...David's wife admitted to the hospital today. Her pneumonia and antibiotics are not working and her breathing isn't good. She continues to feel worse. Jesus, we trust in you!

...the Discipleship Day on Witnessing to continue to increase the effectiveness of witnessing Christ to others.

...all people who have fallen away from the Catholic faith, that their hearts may be open to the voice of the Holy Spirit calling them to return to the Church, returning with a fervent love of Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist and with a loving-knowledge of Him in their souls.

...the Go Make Disciples initiative in our parish, that it will bear fruit, through the Holy Spirit, in evangelizing souls to the Catholic faith.
