Lord, Hear Our Prayers

Please pray for our priests, bishops and for Pope Francis. Please continue to guide them and give them the gifts and strength to lead people to you. Give them the wisdom to recognize the evil one and holiness and courage to overcome these challenges.

St. Elizabeth, I took your name as my Confirmation name because I admire you and the things you accomplished on this earth. I wish to be even a fracture of the woman you are, but right now, I am requesting your help. Kevin and I have had such a strong bond and intertwined lived for more than eight years, until these last few months when something happened to scare him away. Please help Kevin to realize that what he feels for me is love and not just strong friendship. Remind him of all the times and things we have done for each other because this is actually a loving relationship. I beg you to help him .to let his walls down, let me back in and come back to me ready to commit to a solid, loving relationship like we had before he got scared. Please, St. Elizabeth, send me a sign that waiting just a little longer for him is the right thing to do and that he will return to being a huge part of our family. Amen

First let us give the Lord thanks for the abundance of all things.Please pray that the Lord would deliver his people from evil men; That the Lord would preserve his people from violent men, who plan evil things in their heart and stir up wars continually. Pray against the spirit of anti Christ, false witness, terrorism hatred and violence. Please pray and intercede without ceasing that God's will be done in the lives of the world's leaders and for our leaders to seek God and listen to Him. Pray that they would be surrounded by godly counsel and, that our leadership would personally know God and the salvation found through faith in Jesus Christ alone. That we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. God can turn the hearts of kings. Earnestly pray that the people of America and its leaders will humble themselves and seek the Lords face and turn from their wicked ways. Pray that the Lord would hear from heaven and forgive our countries sins and heal our land. God bless America. Pray that the Lord would grant peace in America, that we may lie down and no one will make us afraid. That the Lord would remove wild beasts from the land, and that the sword will not pass through our country and that President Trump along with our leaders be filled with power, with the Spirit of the Lord, and with justice and might to declare the sins of Gods people. Please pray for revival and that the Lord would pour out his spirit on his servants, throughout the world both men and women. Pray for the peace of Israel. Gods will be done on earth as it is in heaven.In Jesus' name, Amen.
