Please pray for my cousin Bernadette. She is 12 years old, and was born with heart and kidney problems, and minor cerebral palsy in her arm and foot. I was at Ave Maria University in Florida when I was given a Mother Teresa prayer card with a 2nd class relic. I felt like God wanted me to pray for something specifically, and after a little bit, He impressed upon me that if I pray to Mother Teresa every day for a year, Bernadette will be healed. Please earnestly join me in my prayers!

I request to pray to our most loving mother and St. Theresa to get a job as I am jobless since last give months. Our loving mother had greatly cared for the poor people who was starving from hunger , cared for the naked with clothes and loved the old people with great kind and care. I hereby request you to pray for me as I the only person who is the solely responsible for daily necessities and my daughters education. I have lost peace of my hand as I am getting angry quickly with everyone. Please pray for me and my daughter.


Please help me with prayers on the following:-

1. I work with Guardian Insurance Services, Malawi. My General Manager in his capacity is not a responsible man. He will always go the Managing Director and report on untrue issues. He will create bad and untrue stories for him to look good. Help me with prayers that he change his bad behavior and turn to God. If he is digging a pit for others he himself should fall into it.

2. Pray for me that I should be a responsible Man, good husband for my wife and good dad to my kids. I should be faithful in everything I do, at home with my family, at work and with my friends.

3. Pray for my kids that they grow in spirit, they should live a prayerful life. God fearing always and they should work hard in class. They should also be intelligent in class.


To begin, I confess that I AM POOR (I DID NOT CHOOSE TO BE POOR)

I am poor for a variety of reasons in my career and personal life.

I am poor yet highly educated.

Prayer Requests: I applied for financial aid from the USA government.  I am eligible for financial aid because I am US Citizen (with a valid current US Passport) and I believe that my Credit is good enough for this Graduate Plus loan; YET:

I recently got an email that I need to prove US Citizenship in order to be eligible for financial aid, so that I can finish my Legal Studies at ...  Law school or elsewhere.

Here is the problem: I believe that there are certain persons in my past (so-called enemies/hackers/etc.) who are causing me problems. I do not know their motivation.

All I know, is that I was nearly killed by a crime "hit and run" last year.  And certain "strange events" keep happening.  Unknown, is it a curse by an unknown enemy?

Furthermore,  I have been prayer First Friday and First Saturday to Our Lady of Fatima this year, as a devout Catholic.   Is it because my Dad has a lack of faith and Sunday worship?

I ask for St. Teresa of Calcutta's intercession to  Jesus and the Angels (particularly St. Michael the Archangel and the Holy Spirit to disperse the evil in my situation; because I believe that I am in a spiritual warfare battle. Spiritual wickedness in high places of authority, political agendas, revenge, etc. "The Battle is not mine but is the Lord" possibly.

I am in a battle against Goliath.

Furthermore, I am in a battle also, because my parents are also elderly and at least one is really sick.

I am on my own basically.

The generation of my parents are dying.  My parents are traveling now to Florida and maybe Jamaica (my birth country) to see a dying friend (imminent death possible)

Whoever or whatever my "enemies" are or their motivations: again, they are working in secret behind the scenes, causing me problems.  This particular student loan company is causing me problems, while other student loan companies are not.  This particular student loan was sued by the Obama administration before the new administration took over.  I am praying the Novena to St. Teresa of Calcutta and the Holy Spirit. I praying a double novena.  I ask that Missionaries of Charity Sisters around the world pray for me at this time.

I have always been close to St. Teresa of Calcutta.  When living in Rome, Italy, I made a visit a few times to the room, that St. Teresa of Calcutta slept and prayed with the Missionaries of Charities Sisters.  And I have venerated other First Class relics of St. Teresa of Calcutta in Atlanta, GA and Washington, DC at the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, where I attended daily Mass in Washington, DC.

By the way, as a devout Catholic, I have regularly attended daily Mass for over 20 years.

Now, I face another Cross, from forces unknown to me, that are denying my US citizenship.

Finally, I am facing a Goliath, possibly a big student loan company (which is political controlled by a political party - New York Times article - that I have opposed).  Is this a political vendetta against me? A personal revenge by former colleagues?  Is it simply racism?  Part of not knowing is part of the problem.  Jesus, I Trust in You and Jesus, I ask you hear St. Teresa of Calcutta's intercession and others who may pray for me.

I ask St. Teresa of Calcutta intercession to Jesus, who is "Thirsting for Love" in my heart.
