Prayer Requests

We invite you to share your prayer requests and ensure you that the sisters will be remembering you in prayer.


First and foremost thank you for your prayers and fasting, as they bore some tremendous fruit today and helped the Supreme Court to rule against Biden's unjust and tyrannical vaccine mandate. The work is far from completed, so I sincerely beg you to keep slaying those demons.

-Please pray for Governor Phil Murphy of New Jersey to be bound in his deceit and wickedness. He signed a bill today codifying the right to an abortion into state law, a move abortion rights advocates say is necessary as the U.S. Supreme Court has signaled it may overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade decision later this year. The new law (S49), dubbed the Freedom of Reproductive Choice Act, will also permit the state Department of Banking and Insurance to conduct a study on whether the cost of an abortion is a barrier to low-income and uninsured women, a step toward requiring insurance companies to cover the procedure.

-Please pray and fast for any Bishops and religious in New Jersey's churches who also believe in and propagate this genocide of the innocent. 

-Please pray for Robert Nicosia to continue receiving grace, as he heals from Covid-19 and remains in the hospital. Robert is shedding the light of God in the hospital despite with Doctors and Nurses despite his suffering, in his zeal for The Kingdom of God while sharing the beauty of the rosary.
