Prayer Requests

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


Forgive me if these requests are repetitive, but I am going to continue to ask all of you to beckon heaven for the following prayer request. We must relentlessly, persistently and patiently fight back against the evil one and his minions until our last breath. And then by God’s grace we will join the angels & legions in heaven.

-For the complete destruction of the perversely wicked, evil and most sinister in our world, who are all hell bent on brining a demonic & dystopian society upon us. I ask for them to be bound in their deceit and wickedness. These are people who have no moral compass or fear, nor any respect of the almighty, or the sanctity of human life of any kind. These are people who made blood oaths with the evil one, willing to even kill their own for power and control.

-For all those in our government who have and continue to use social media, and all media outlets to do the bidding of the evil one., pushing and promoting the trans and homo-sexual agenda, crt theories, purposefully allowing for illegal immigration, voter fraud and true disinformation through operation mockingbird.

-For more and more priests, bishops and women of God, to arise and promote public Eucharistic processions, daily & public rosaries and an illumination of conscience upon our world.
