I lost my 22 month old twin daughter to an accidental drowning a few months ago and I literally have been walking through the fires of hell while our Lord carries me. I have had so much thrown at me these past 6 months but God is showing me He has never left my side .
Today I ask for an urgent prayer please.
I ask for God’s will, mercy, and strength. He has blessed me beyond words and I trust in Him fully as His truth and love unfolds, but I believe your prayers help in His will. Thank you.
3  Forums / Prayer Requests / Pray for husbands job and our family on: June 11, 2016, 06:57:37 PM
Hello! We need a miracle and I know where to turn! The prayers on here are strong.
Please pray that my husbands company keeps their contract (aka their jobs).
I will explain more in detail on why this is so important on the discussion board but long story short, I do not think God put all of these events in my life for my husband to lose his job. I have faith everything is in His caring plan for us, but prayers never hurt.

6  Forums / Prayer Requests / Prayer for humanity's return to faith on: February 22, 2014, 01:25:59 PM
I read the online news daily and it breaks my heart to see thousands of people "like" comments about how religion is for fools and how the bible is just a book. Our world is increasely growing apathetic to The Lord and it breaks my heart. Let us pray for the world, that they may grow in faith and understanding of Our Lord.
Thank you.
7  Forums / Prayer Requests / Please pray for boyfriend's job on: February 06, 2013, 07:12:54 PM
I think this might need a miracle because his coworker said the owner will be telling Byron to step down soon but the people on this board's faith and prayers are so strong.
Please pray that Byron can keep his same position and if not please pray he keeps the same salary or slightly less. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Also pray for my mother vivien.. She has had many miracles through her prayers for others but she is really in the dark night of the soul prayers for her 'never seem to get answered' according to her and it weighs on her heart.
8  Forums / Book Study / 12 steps to holiness and salvation on: November 28, 2012, 10:37:07 PM
I am not sure what forum this goes into but I thought that it might fit into here.
I found the book "The 12 steps to holiness and salvation" and was wondering if it is a good read and if it is a more spiritual or logical book?
My mind has been kinda foggy lately from the lack of any spiritual reading but I understand cold cut books like Sinner's guide from Luis of Granada and Thomas Aquinas's writtings quite well. A month ago I tried to read St. Teresa of Avila's interior castle and I couldn't keep focused enough to read it. I understand Avila's writings of our souls being complex matters similar to diamonds where we have many chambers and the heart of that chamber of the soul is Jesus but I just could not focus!!! I want to read a book that will renew my spiritual faith again.
I have strayed away from God three times in my life and all three times the Sinners guide brought me back full heartly. Anyone recommend this book to help their spiritual growth or recommend any books that might help me get my heart back to Jesus and the Church in full force?
God bless.

10  Forums / Catholic General Discussion / Beautiful Discernment Prayer on: June 09, 2011, 11:00:37 AM
I heard this prayer yesterday and really liked it, maybe you guys will enjoy it too.



God has created me, to do Him some definite service; He has  committed some work to me which He has not committed to another. I have my mission - I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next. I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons. He has not created me for nothing. Therefore, I will trust Him. Whatever, whereever I am. I cannot be thrown away.
Amen

Hello everyone! My mother is asking for my prayers for a special intention and I figured I could pray for her and go one step above that and ask the holiest friends I have to pray along side with me for my mother.
Thank you and May God be with you always.

14  Forums / Catholic General Discussion / Which is a better choice? on: March 17, 2011, 09:53:40 AM
My best friend has a good heart but she isn't very religious. We went to confession together maybe three months ago and sometimes she will say to me now 'well at least I will go to heaven I went to confession' playfully to me and I know she is in mortal sin. I know by not saying anything it's my sin but I feel I would rather atone and confess for it on Earth rather then her maybe going to hell for knowing her sin. Is this wrong?
15  Forums / Catholic General Discussion / Happy Lent :) on: March 17, 2011, 09:50:28 AM
I hope everyone is having a  Blessed  and Happy Lent =)

Happy Lent! It is the season of giving up what we like, a time to go with out. It is a hard thing for most of us to do. Who really wants to give up that candy bars, or pop? And really why would it make a difference to God; Do we really thing that God looks at us and says “You did not give up candy during Lent of 2008, and you ate meat on a Friday, so you can not enter heaven!”

I don’t think so, but that is not what Lent is all about. If we think it is just giving up something we like, then we are missing the point. It is not about not eating candy or drinking a pop. Lent is not a punishment or a diet plan; it is an act of love, an act of total giving. But it should not be looked at as something that is sad, or a bother, but rather, as something that is hard but joyous. Lent offers us a time to reflect and grow in our faith. Lent is the preparation time for the Holy of Holy days, Easter, the day of the Risen Lord.

But to truly understand Lent, let’s look at the days proceeding to the Crucifixion of Christ.

Jesus’ Lent:

So what did Jesus give up, did he decide that he was no longer going to eat meat on Fridays, or no more Coke. I don’t think so. First off Coke was not invented, and secondly, he gave up something greater. We all know he gave His life (and that this is the greatest gift and sacrifice Jesus gave us), but let’s look at what else he gave us, that we may over look.

Jesus gave us his Humility, when he entered Jerusalem on a donkey, a lowly animal, not worth much, not something a great leader would ride on. But he, the king of kings, the son of God, entered the great city as a lowly man, one of no great importance. When have you willingly been humble, when have you allowed yourself to be nothing of great importance? Jesus entered Jerusalem with great fan fare, palms where laid out for him on the ground, and waved them at him as He road pass. He was treated as a King, a King who humbled himself, one who could have road the finest of animals, or even been escorted by many important people. But Jesus sacrificed the greatness, the ceremony and all the praise, for the humility of a donkey.

Jesus gave us his Dignity, when he washed the feet of his friends at the last supper. The act of feet washing was for the servants of the house, not the host or honored guest, and definitely not for the son of God. When have we ever washed the feet of our friends? Jesus became the servant master, the one who served us, even though he is greater then we will ever be. The humility this took was great, such an act of love, so simple yet so grand. To wash the dust from our feet, to wipe them dry, he who would save us all, on his knees to wash our feet from our weary travels. It is our dignity that we hang on to, we are always protecting it from harm, but Jesus free gives of it.

So is a candy bar or a coke really to much to ask? And really are we doing enough? Jesus sacrificed for 40 days in the desert where he had to struggle with hunger, thirst and the temptations of the devil, we have 40 days to lent, in the comfort of our homes and if we slip up and eat something we are not to, really only you and God will know. So really what are we sacrificing? How are we suffering? God asks very little of us, and as humans we respond with very little. Basically we give what we are asked to, nothing more, and nothing less. So Lent is a time to go that extra mile, Lent allows us to experience a tiny bit of Jesus in the desert, or riding the donkey. So the next time you have a friend over, wash their feet, I don’t mean latterly, but you can humble yourself and give of your dignity in many ways, you can learn t to live as a servant master, not only during Lent, but all year long.

So make this a Happy Lent (I think we should send Happy Lent Cards like we do Christmas and Easter)
