Arrow Know of a good 800 Number for Catholic/Christian prayer during time of stress?

If so, please share. If there isn't a Catholic one, a Protestant one will do - I just want to be able to know I have a prayer ministry number where I can reach a live someone 24/7 to pray with me, because I'm going to be going through a major life transition soon and may see an upswing in my anxiety levels.

I'd much rather talk with a Catholic or other Christian than a mental health counselor because I want the spiritual dimension in there too. And if I'm in the middle of a panic attack leaving a message may not be sufficient.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

You may want to check out your nearest local Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration Chapel.
I did ... changed the direction of my life during a time of stress.

Prayers for you ...

You might enjoy the following website instead. It has MP3's you can download with music and prayer. VERY relaxing and uplifting!

Go to
http://www.google.com
and type in CATHOLIC PRAYER REQUEST DIAL A PRAYER
and see what links come up.
There should be a number to call on a few of the links.
I recall seeing them...

God bless,

. . . . . .
Marians of the Immaculate Conception

Since its founding in 1995, the Divine Mercy Intercessory Prayerline has served more than 1.5 million people who have sought comfort and healing through prayer.

Meet the Prayerline

"Hello," says Br. Michael Opalacz, MIC, picking up a ringing phone. "This is Br. Michael. How can I help you?"

It's a question you hear emanating nearly non-stop from the rows of cubicles in the Divine Mercy Intercessory Prayerline's office, headquartered at the Marian Helpers Center here in Stockbridge, Mass., home of the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy.

"Just knowing that I can be of service and be a 'foot washer,' like Jesus did of old, is what I find most rewarding," says Br. Michael during a break in the calls.

Who are the people who administer the Divine Mercy Intercessory Prayerline? Like Br. Michael, they are people who have responded to the call of God and who have been graced by the charism of intercessory prayer, so desperately needed at this time in our history.

The intercessors don't offer counseling. They listen. They pray with callers, and they pray for callers and those who send their petitions via mail or electronically. Then, the intercessors pray for each intention in Our Lady of Mercy Oratory, located adjacent to the ministry's office. The intercessors pray for all intentions during their daily Holy Hour. The intentions are also remembered at two daily Masses, the 3 p.m. Hour of Great Mercy and in the Chaplet of The Divine Mercy.

Each intention is then placed into a prayer box beneath a 1st-class relic of St. Faustina Kowalska, the secretary and apostle of God's Mercy.

Do you have a prayer request?

"Nothing is too small or too great with our Lord."

We invite you to call us (1-800-804-3823), e-mail us ([email protected]), fill out our online form, or write us with your prayer intention.

Our mailing address is:

Thanks everyone, keep 'em coming.

the phoenix: I will do that during the daytime certainly and the effects may help me stay calmer in the nights.

Jesus 123: Does that mean they can pray with you 24/7?

I'm also going to see if the hospice that helped when my mom died would still let me call their minister because some of this anxiety is indirectly linked to that loss...

Thanks for the prayers and the caring. I have felt that people are praying for me because I am hanging in there. Going through the various stages of what it takes to move, and keeping busy - Ora et Labora as St. Benedict would say!
