I thought by now somebody would have answered this! I will tell you what I do, for what it’s worth!! When I say my morning and evening prayers, and my prayers at Mass, I used to try to go through a list of names. I always thought I might be forgetting someone, even though I know God doesn’t. NOW, though, I say a prayer - for “all those I have promised to pray for, Lord, you know their needs”. I often also ask that He help them to know He is with them. I keep it simple.
I thought I had a corner on asking questions!! My poor priest!!! We certainly don’t have all the answers, so, we need to seek, ask and knock. Who knows what doors may open? Understanding, Faith, hopefully, some day, Heaven itself.
