Prayer For the Second Coming of Jesus -

I pray that Jesus Christ returns to Earth soon, to bring the eternal love and peace of the Kingdom of God to all who believe in Him, and for every knee to bow to Him, and for every tongue to confess that Jesus is Lord at His return. Amen.


Dear everyone, please pray for this prayer request above, and please share it with everyone! Until it comes true, and Jesus returns to save His people - which hopefully, by then, will include all the people of the world!


God bless you!

Dear Sisters, Happy Easter, Sisters. Christ is risen Allelluia Alleluia. How are you doing sisters? I am currently a Deacon and a member of the Society of the Divine Word (SVD). I would like to invite all of you to pray for my priesthood ordination which will be held on May 22, 2021, coinciding with the Santa Rita feast of Cascia. And the day after, I will celebrate my first Mass on Pentecost, 23 May 2021. I really ask for prayers from all the sisters in your community, that I will remain faithful forever in my priesthood. After my priesthood ordination, I have been assigned to work in California. Thank you so much, Sisters, for your prayers.

Many blessings.

Please pray for my son (Jamal Hurd) he is all mixed up in his mind. He has taken someone's car he lives with and stolen his debit card. He has left the state and is just driving only the Lord knows where he is going, I pray he is coming home. They have called the police and they are searching for him. All this started because he lost a promotion on the job which he had put his heart into doing a good job but it didn't work out. Please pray for his safe return and that he turns himself in and is not hurt and he gets probation instead of time. He is really normally a good respectful young man but something has gone terribly wrong.
