Prayer warriors needed

Intercessors Of The Lamb:

"God wants us to bloom wherever we are planted. Wherever God has placed us, that’s where He wants us to pray. Intercession is a ministry for all people in all walks of life. God asks us to pray where we pray best—right where He has placed us. Intercession fits into any vocational call because it comes out of our baptismal vocation, which we all have in common. That’s the beauty of it. We’re all in this together as a Church, as God’s people. All of us together make up the Body of Christ. Together we focus on Jesus, and together we intercede for the Father’s greater honor and glory."

Excerpt from Interceding with Jesus, Chapter 4, 2000.

Let's pray for all who the Lord brings to this site...whether they are looking for prayers, or to join us in intercession.

for a friend's dad

Could you keep my Dad in your prayers today (Wednesday)? He is having a stent put in his corotid artery. He has had this before (in the other side) and it is pretty "routine" but prayers are always welcomed. Please keep the doctors and nurses in prayer as well.
Thank you very much.

Prayer for the Unborn

Our Lady of Guadalupe Patroness of the unborn

The Lord a while back lead us to pray for the children, he is now asking us to take a step back and go even further in our prayer to cover all children from the moment of conception on. John the Baptist lept in his mother's womb when he heard Mary's greeting. If children can experience joy and grace at that stage then the opposite is certainly true also. Let us pray for their protection from the evil one who has targeted them from the very beginning. Let us also pray for all the children that received soul wounds so early in their life that it is beyond their memory...may healing be theirs.

Our Lady of Guadalupe

Universalis: Today:
"Our Lady of Guadalupe

The shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, near Mexico City, is one of the most celebrated places of pilgrimage in North America. On December 9, 1531, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to an Indian convert, Juan Diego, and left with him a picture of herself impressed upon his cloak. Devotion to Mary under this title has continually increased, and today she is the Patroness of the Americas."

leaping for joy

USCCB - (NAB) - December 12, 2007:

"When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the infant leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth, filled with the Holy Spirit, cried out in a loud voice and said, “Most blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. And how does this happen to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For at the moment the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy. Blessed are you who believed that what was spoken to you by the Lord would be fulfilled.” And Mary said: “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior.” "

Prayer for Today: May all Christians today leap for joy at the sound of Mary's 'voice' and boldly stand united to proclaim Elizabeth's words 'blessed are you among women'.

May Mary's own words too echo in our hearts "My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior."
