You are welcome to submit a prayer request to be posted on the diocese’s online Prayer Book of Intentions. These prayers are offered up at the noon Mass celebrated by Bishop Anthony B. Taylor and other priests on Wednesdays at St. John Catholic Center in Little Rock. We invite you to also pray for these intentions at your parish, school, religious community or prayer group.


Lord, Hear Our Prayers

For my aunt, who is grieving the recent loss of her husband, for financial stability, for healing in her body as she was recently diagnosed with cancer. May her sorrow and suffering be offered up to the Lord, so she may receive peace in this time of worry and despair. I pray the Lord, will continue to guide her, and that she may be surrounded during this time by your people, this loving community may welcome her, support her and be reminders to her of all the gifts the Lord has already granted her.

Please pray that God will open a door in my husband’s heart so that he will be open to fixing our marriage. He has filed for divorce and served me and my response is due on January 16. I beg God to have my husband unfile this request for a divorce. We have both wronged each other over the years and it has been difficult at times, but God NEVER intended us to be divorced. I am beyond remorseful for my contributions to our problems. Please forgive me God and heal our marriage. I love my husband with all my heart and I simply ask that we be allowed to try one last time to get help and fix our relationship. He is very adamantly opposed to this, but Jesus I know you can bring people back from the dead even, so how much less effort would be required to get us on the right path so we can keep the vows we made. I still thank You for the gift of my husband and I know you are known for last miracles. Please help us to continue in our marriage and for both of us become closer to you individually and as a couple. We both need you and we need each other. I am believing now that my marriage to Eric is fixed and that we are starting over with each other, thank you Lord! In Jesus' name, Amen.

Please pray for my husband who is not a Catholic but defends the faith. He is in a deep depression and will not seek help. He is saying he is leaving us. We have three children - for their sake and my sanity I request prayers.
