Your Love, Your Love, is all that really matters

Dear LORD,

I pray for my friends tonight and their intentions. I pray particularly for Paisley Hays, and that the Infant Viability Bill passes in Australia, and I pray for her and for her parish priest, currently on sabbatical. I pray for Nora Sailor's children, that they be filled with Your Holy Spirit to overflowing. I pray for Phil and for a surly Peach, that they be good and holy parents to their children and that they draw closer to you. I pray for Phil that he resist temptation like St. Padre Pio and St. John Vianney. I pray for Paul Grandi, Judy Riggs, and Rachel Lamb. I pray for all those today who need You, but don't know to ask or don't have the strength to ask. I pray for my family this Memorial Day weekend as they pray for me as I run my first marathon. Please comfort them, those silly geese!

I pray in thanksgiving for all the blessing You have rained down on me: my family and friends, my work, my good health, food on the table, a roof above my head. The very, very simple things that so many do not have today, and that so many others take for granted, not for gifted.

And Love. Your Love is never-ending. Please, LORD, be with those who need You most today.

I pray all this in the Name of Jesus, the Christ.

Dear LORD,

I pray for Phil for perseverance and hope. I pray for Gabi, critically ill, for Your love and Mary's arms to hold her. I pray for Marie to abide in Your love. I pray for safe travels for Bronwen. I pray for the intentions of Erin, Hog and Michele.

In the Name of Jesus, I pray Thy Will be done.
