I Need a Prayer

You know those “take a penny…leave a penny” jars you see next to the registers at the local coffee shop or deli?  Well, this page is like an “ask for a prayer…say a prayer” jar.

Please use this page to:

1) Submit a request for prayers  – for you, family, friends, a co-worker, neighbor…anyone who could use them

2) Find people to say prayers for.  If you find yourself unable to complete your daily quota of Lenten Positive Acts, visit this page to say prayers for some of the people listed – and fulfill your daily requirement…and then some. 🙂

3) Help put some perspective on the issues in your life.  By reading the prayer requests of others and praying for them, you just might find that you’re actually grateful to have the issues you do…


  1. Please pray for my husband as his prostate cancer is being monitored, and he has a check up today. We are always anxious on these days. Also, please pray for my daughter-in-laws father who is undergoing chemo for bladder cancer. Thank you!

  2. Clive Robert Spinks

    My wife and I have set up a prayer chain of about 25 people for a member of our church congregation called Pam Carpenter who has been in Kings College Hospital several times without a diagnosis being found. She is at home with her Canon husband Derek and is able to do very little for herself. Her eyesight is also failing so she cannot read.
    We have suggested to the 25 people that they each pray for Pam for a couple of minutes every Monday and Friday throughout Lent at 11.00am. Hopefully these “communal” prayers will have some effect.

  3. Please pray for my brother-in-law Randy, and my sister Myra. Randy is in the hospital – which is on lock-down because of covid-19, and his wife Myra isn’t able to visit him. Thank you!

  4.

In Jesus name Amen

Her sister Charlotte is a participant in the Lenten Positive Acts Challenge, and she has devoted her Lenten period to Sheree – contacting her old friends, looking after the family and preparing for the journey ahead. Please pray for Sheree and Charlotte. Thank you.

  18. Please pray for my friend Robert’s Father, John. He’s in an assisted living facility, and has a number of medical issues. He’s going for a test today, and could use some prayers. Robert’s Mother is in the same assisted living facility, but separated from John because she doesn’t need the same medical attention. However, they don’t tell her about John’s medical conditions. And Robert brings them hope and love with all his visits – even though he’s unable to tell one about the other. Please pray for him as well – that Jesus continues to give him the strength, faith, and energy to continue helping his parents. And himself. Thank You

  19. Last week I saw my ex boyfriend, who is married now but I feel he is stuck in his marriage and looked very sad. It seems as if he is forced to the marriage, nonetheless. I thought I should pray for him, that God should direct him to the right path. This is the prayer and I will repeat it 3 times day or even more:


    Pray once:

    May the Father command it, may the Son arrange it, and may the Holy Spirit appease the hearts of those who are against us.

    Repeat 10 times:

    Come, Holy Spirit, enlighten the hearts of those who can favor us. (or those who can help us)

    Pray once:
    Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be. Amen.

  20. I pray for my nephew Austin. He has been suffering with stomach issues. I pray that they find the answers, healing and treatment needed. In Jesus name Amen.

My two sons have also fallen away from the church and I ask the Dear Lord to touch their heart and souls and allow them to find their way back to your house Lord. I also need prayers for my oldest son who estranged himself from me over 4 years ago. I was never invited to his wedding when he married his wife and was left out of the celebrations that went along with it. I am praying every day for healing and peace. I know the Lord is working on my family and teaching me what I need to learn also. Please send prayers for me as I am praying for all of you also. God Bless all of you. Amen!

I pray for them every Sunday when I am at mass and continue to ask them to find their way back home, but it hasn’t happened yet, I know God must have a plan. Also, pay for my oldest son and his daughter Grace who are in a bad place in life with their father/daughter relationship. Grace is 16 and sees the world in a different light and just doesn’t understand all her dad has done for her over the years. Grace is downright hateful and it really hurts my heart for both of them.

    • Lord,
      You have taught me that faith as small as a mustard seed can grow into an amazing tree.
      Today we give you our little seeds of faith, (Anne, her friend as well as myself). We place them firmly in the ground of your word and water them with truth. The warmth of your love will make them grow.
      Today we ask by faith that you would bring healing from this cancer. We place our trust in you. May these seeds sow healing into every area where the tumour has emerged. May they grow into a strong work, redeeming and restoring with great strength and power. We know by your will that Anne’s friend is completely healed in Jesus’ Name.
