You are welcome to submit a prayer request to be posted on the diocese’s online Prayer Book of Intentions. During the COVID-19 crisis, these prayers are being offered up at Masses celebrated by Bishop Anthony B. Taylor and other priests at the House of Formation in Little Rock. Join us in praying by adding these intentions to your daily prayer as well.


Lord, Hear Our Prayers

I have put my kids in jeopardy of being taken from me. I have asked for forgiveness and God has answered me. Now my ex-husband is trying to take them. We need the prayer to help with our peace. My kids don't know him and aren't happy with him. Please pray for my heart to be at peace with the judge's decision whatever it may be. Please pray I have the strength to work hard to get them back if I loose them. Please pray my heart doesn't break to the point of no return. Thank you.
