Amazing results from prayers, more prayers needed!


I am experiencing incredible results from coming here to ask for prayers over the last week. It is just amazing. I have asked for prayers for my living situation and my relationships.

One further intention I would like to ask for prayers for is for my son. He has had a difficult life because of my illness and my unstable marriage. I would like to pray for the marriage, that we can resolve the past issues and get back together, and for my son. After the divorce he deepened his involvement with drugs, falling into a serious opioid addiction, went to jail for about 6 months after getting involved in a negative, codependent relationship and now he is living in a program where he is involved in the 12 step program and has daily guidance.

His life has been filled with trauma. He has missed out on a lot of formative experiences because of my illness: everything was always in crisis. I would like to pour out my heart but I have been told to keep it succinct. Suffice it to say that at the naval academy private school he attended he had the second worst disciplinary record of any student, His life was just such a disorgnanized mess because I was such a disorganized mess. I suffered from a very serious form of OCD that ravaged HIS life.

Oh please won’t you pray for him, and for our family. God bless you.


I will pray for the healing power of Christ to be with you and your son.

My life was filled with a lot of trauma but by the grace of Christ can an d did heal me.

God bless you, you sound like a wonderful caring father, sometimes that is the best gift you can give a son or a daughter.


Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.


Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.


Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.


Prayer for a Miracle

God of all creation, you who spoke a simple command and brought forth light from
the darkness, I ask you now to send forth your miracle-working power to heal (cloudsurfer
's son). You cleansed the lepers, opened the eyes of the blind and by
speaking a simple command, you empowered the crippled to rise up and walk.
You sent forth your life-giving power to all those in need, including those you raised from
the dead. I ask you to send forth your healing power into cloudsurfer
's son’s body and give him the strength to fight his illness. I ask this through my Lord, Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen


Prayed for your family and for your son, in Jesus’ name, Amen.


I am definitely praying that God Blesses you and your family with strength, unity, and love


I like looking for the big picture and if I had the time I might sit down and compose a list of all the significant things which had occurred in my life in one column and in corresponding column note down any spiritual gains I can discern a person might be gifted as a result of those significant occurrences. Just as an attempt to see in hindsight perhaps what Our Lord was doing.

Our lives could be eternal for our spirit so our earthly trials I believe should be viewed in that context. This is what I understand from my Catholic faith which I think is meant to be enlightening.

I hope and trust that Our Heavenly Father will bless you with peace and everything you need to gain salvation. :pray:


O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, Amen.

Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world. x10

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.


Lee1 thank you that is very helpful and I have been texting my son because he missed out on going to a four year college. My ex husband and I both attended college. I fell ill afterward and never worked and was an invalid. So I tried to put into perspective for him that God just has a different plan for him for which everything that has happened specifically predestines him. Just as you point out, so thank hyou.

He had an eye injury when he was 16 that cut short his stay at a really nice naval academy/private boarding school and that it hurt him really badly.
