-1-For a mother of two with a third on the way. She is 32 weeks pregnant and was hospitalized tonight with preeclampsia and other health complications. Medical staff want her to deliver within the next four days. Please pray for a healthy baby and a quick, full recovery for the mother.
-2-For a friend of mine expecting her seventh. Please pray that her announcement is met with the joy befitting such news! I am sure she will encounter naysayers and critics, so pray that their hearts may be turned to accept full openness to life. If they meet her other six, they will certainly understand why she and her husband want more!
-3-For two of my closest friends who are pregnant. One has a baby in Heaven whom she never met, so this pregnancy has been a time to learn to trust in God. The other has a host of practical decisions to make with the arrival of this child. Pray for discernment for her and a continued strengthening of the relationship between her and her husband.
-4-For those who have turned away from the Church, that they might come home and be met joyfully.
-5-For those who have turned away from God, that their hearts will be open to the people and situations God brings them in His desire to hold them again.
-6-That the world would trust and celebrate the fathomless divine mercy. Where sin abounds, so much more does God's grace!
-7-For the unemployed, underemployed, and those suffering in their current employment, that all might find meaningful work that honors their dignity as human beings.
