For my son to come home to me again soon. For my upcoming case to go well and I find a good attorney. I always find abusive attorneys who take my money, run and don't help. For my son to spend the rest of his childhood in my home. For justice be served in our situation and the suffering to finally end.

I ask for prayers for my father Pasquale so that he can sell my grandparents' house. My father, in order to treat my sister, who had been suffering from cancer for 4 years and then died, had to make up debts and now he has to pay them off with the sale of this house.

In Jesus name I ask you to pray for the return of all my money which was cheated from me through a scam. I am in heavy debt now. I am also praying for God to help me. Please I beg you to pray for me. Let the police be able to recover all my money from the scammers and return it to me. Let the scammers realize their faults and return my money. Pray that God would send angels to tell the scammers in their dreams to return my money back.

Wishing/ hoping/ praying that my mom and I can work out the logistics in the near future for my Dad's ashes to be interred at the cemetery where my mom picks out the right niche. I'm trying my best to honor his cremains where we still have him at home for now-- I put a Mary statue and flowers in front, along with the Companions of St. Anthony prayer book always open to pray "for the deceased" anytime. When I think of it, I pray that prayer again, like I did just before writing this. (Thank you to whoever left that little book on a church counter, it is well-loved here.) Sometimes at 3pm I go pray the Chaplet in front of him too. I feel guilty that we haven't gotten him properly "buried" yet, like we're being greedy, hogging him, not letting his other loved ones have open-access to paying their respects. I know the Bible says to follow Jesus and "let the dead bury the dead" but since I'm stuck where I'm at I need to bloom where I'm planted and be involved with the work of mercy to bury the dead. I feel a lack of closure; I feel stunted in my stages of grief. I also struggle with lapsing into the stage of denial, believing he's still alive, and these aren't really his ashes. I also feel like having them at home is haunting our house, and I'd like them placed in/ on sacred ground. I'm trying to create as sacred of an area as I can. I'd like for him to have a Christian funeral (if he's dead? Like I said: denial). But I did baptize him just in case, and pray the Chaplet for him before he died, so although he was intubated and had not necessarily wanted that, I hope his soul embraced it peacefully once it happened. I ask Mama Mary to look after him and for him to forgive me for all my misdeeds. I can't imagine a Heaven without seeing him again, so I hope he will be there when I get there someday. I wish I had been a more patient, kind, appreciative, understanding daughter, but I went through phases and neglected to be the best example I could, and left him feeling not as loved as he wanted. I'm afraid I made him feel unloved by God sometimes. I'm afraid that if he ends up in hell it'll partly be my fault, and I keep praying and praying that he won't go there.

Very thankful to get my very first smartphone today (in my early forties and I've never had a smartphone!) We're keeping the old flip phone because it belonged to dad and can still make emergency phone calls so it's good to have around. Plus I have to retrieve my contacts from there now. But I'd like to pray that I don't become addicted to my new smartphone just because it has access to much more than my old phone did. For many years now, I've observed how people all around me in various locations may be on their phones, while I'd be reading a book or walking safely without distraction. I want to keep praying and reading and living my life without becoming overly dependent on my phone. I'd rather type on a computer keyboard because I can type 85 words a minute, instead of one finger poke at a time on my phone. I'd rather watch tv/ movies on our tv set. And I don't need a bunch of apps. I've selected a few free ones such as Hallow, Relevant Radio, and the Divine Mercy/ Mary apps. Plus Door Dash (but I want to try that as a job, not use it myself). I especially wanted a smartphone so that I can try side jobs that require apps. This is particularly important to me because my new regular steady job only lasted 1 month due to it causing a chronic cough from the work environment (sink chemicals, not smoke or anything, I'm not brave enough to be a fireman!) Anyway, I'm open to delivering groceries, walking dogs, and other types of side jobs that have a flexible schedule but require a smartphone app. Here's my time to be responsible and not just play games or watch moves on my phone. I admit I do like talking to Siri though. She tells funny jokes and recommended I check out EWTN when I requested her to tell me a particular prayer. Sometimes it's just neat getting to hear her voice anytime I say "hey Siri" and she's there listening and so far hasn't told me I'm annoying so that's a plus.

Putting all trust into the Blessed Mother in her month that may daughter will conceive this month and that it will be the beginning of many children. This is the reason why I will continue to teach religious education.

Praying that my aide will not leave me and will continue to work the days and hours we're assigned and be happy(including summer classes) and into the future!

JESUS, you are a big God; therefore, I ask big. Thank you.

Still have a congested cough but stopped coughing up phlegm... but I should also ask you to pray for my mom because she also has bronchitis (she caught it from me, poor mom!) Now we have a daily routine where I hear her coughing in the morning, so then I get us our Mucinex and make one of our varieties of healing herbal teas, etc. We have oranges with vitamin C, zinc, and thankfully lots of sunshine here in Long Beach. Resting as much as we can. I'm trying to use my free time to pray and meditate on my Bible study homework instead of watching t.v. which is a temptation! :O Hopefully we'll both make a full recovery, God-willing 🙂

for loved ones with dementia, that we can spend time with them without annoying them too much (by learning about how to communicate with them in a way that's pleasant for them), and hopefully find things they can do that they want to do so they don't get too bored, and especially pray with and/or for them, near them... forgetful lives matter (i'm getting there, but i have a long ways to go yet, praying for physical/ mental health to keep my memory up as well as i can as long as i can)

Laryngitis is going away, but still coughing up phlegm... hope to heal and be able to get myself back to church asap, without being contagious. 🙂 Even if suffering, God is there... that is the joy.
