  1. St Therese, I am in need of your help please. I urgently need a new job that is less stressful and a better fit for my personality and abilities.

    Thank you

  6. My continual prayer is for conversions and return to the faith for my children & spouses and for baptism for 3 grandchildren. St. Therese pray for us.

  7. St Therese, it is my prayer that you will touch with your healing power to my daughter shan that she will be restored to full health in mind and body, mend what is broken, cast out anything that should not be with her, remove any inflammation, rebuild any damaged areas. Let your healing love and the power of the holy spirit be with her. Whatever disappointments, troubles, stress that she goes through this time, all will pass and she will live the normal life in the presence of the Lord. I pray that whatever her plans/ desires in life, she will be able to accomplish. Never forsake her, lead her to the right path.
    I humbly pray also to heal my officemates , jos, utilities, their families, who were contracted with covid, those under isolation/quarantine. For us not yet vaccinated, protect us always, and when the right time comes, i am praying that the vaccines to be injected to us will be safe and no untoward reactions will affect us. Please shield us from sickness and suffering and save us from catastrophic losses. Keep my parents/family/ brothers/sister/relatives/friends and their families in good health always. Help me in my work that i may be able to deliver our targets and lower our past due accounts.

    All these things Lord and St Therese, we pray with much love and thanksgiving, amen.

  8. Thank you, dear Lord, and Saint Therese, for the abundant blessings that you bestow on me each day. Yet I ask for a few special prayers. For myself, I have recently developed a high blood pressure issue. I pray that this issue can be resolved without medication or complications.

    I humbly ask for your prayers and those of Saint Therese for my daughter who is in a toxic work environment but cannot leave her employ while her company is the defendant in a lawsuit. This is causing my daughter tremendous stress and anxiety which I pray will soon be relieved. However, there is no settlement in sight, and the court dockets are backlogged because of Covid. God bless all.

  9. Please pray for the reconversion of our country.
    Also pray for my daughter Elizabeth who is going through a bad divorce. Please pray that she be granted 100% legal custody. Pray for her 3 children who she is trying to raise in the Catholic faith. Help her to rely on God and trust in His goodness as it is difficult for her to trust at all right now.
    Please pray that all of my children strive to be good, holy, Catholic parents.
    Pray that Ben will better know and then do God’s will in his life.

  10. Have been so reluctant and keep a distance from God because of life challenges. I pray i go closer again to God happily. Have been so heartbroken for several years, wishes to get married and have kids but that’s not forth coming. Pray i find love again. I had to post this time around for people to help pray with me for God to answer me. Getting married and having kids had been in my diary since 2014, yet i have been so heartbroken in the only relationship i had ever had. Also pray God take my minde off the person in Jesus mighty name I pray. AMEN

  11. I pray for my niece and nephew, may St Theresa’s love blessings be more present in their lives so that they can open their hearts to our Lord, so they may seek and find healing from the loss they have experienced in their young lives.

  12. Please pray for my health. I am getting better – slowly but surely – and pray the healing continues. My husband and I would like to give our daughter a sibling, but my health isn’t where it needs to be to try to get pregnant yet.

  13. Dear God, you sent me a new job in November, and I am so grateful, please step in to remove the enemy’s work in my relationship with my subordinates. Everyday there are unwarranted challenges and I see resentment towards me from them. I am so confused Lord. Throw your grace and blessing upon me and fix my life in the office where things are broken. Staff members feel justified to disrespect me and slander me in ways I have never experienced. Pray for me St Therese in this strange land away from home and remove my prosecutors from my purpose. In jesus name.
