Mother Theresa I earnestly implore of you to grant my son the grace to clear his SEM 1.  Mother grant my son the grace to clear his BEE, Engineering mechanics and Maths 1 and emerge out successful and proceed further in his career.  Mother I urge you to bless my son and keep him sage under you loving care.  Amen


Joseph is very critical and continues to decline, blood work in crucial areas are getting worse. Besides that he has developed pneumonia and the respiratory team or whoever is in charge is not getting metaneb treatments started that I asked for on admission at 5 PM last night. He didn't present with any pulmonary issues but now has developed them. The worst part is that his sodium level has risen to 174 and Dr. Nunez is worried that the hospital won't allow him to scope Joseph. I contacted Joseph's endocrinologist who was the one who discovered the entire problem through routine blood work. He said sodium has always been a chronic problem we have battled but it is not an option they HAVE to scope him to find out where the bleeding is and stop it!!! Please pray that hospital politics don't play a roll in their determining whether or not Joseph can be scoped. He's on the ventilator and it should not present any problem. It is critical that they stop the bleed and put Joseph on critical and aggressive pulmonary care. We've not had very good luck at KMC battling pulmonary infections so PLEASE PRAY! Dr. Or.gingerly is trying to prepare me for the worst. Please pray for a HUGE MIRACLE!


My name is Jordan. Please bless me and pray for me for Emotional and Spiritual healing especially for depression. Please also pray for me to overcome my anger issues because of marriage and financial problems. Thank you


I am a fellow student from Kerala pursuing my graduation in Bachelor of Arts. I am a student of average academic excellence. I could not go through the exams easily. Expectations of my loved ones and the effort they have put in educating me is furthering my tensions and mental conflicts. At this moment, I cannot do anything but to implore the blessings of the Almighty in the name of Lord Jesus through St.Mother Teresa. In this note I was told to let you know my earnest desire to be a permanent part of Missionaries of Charity for the which I receive hardly any encouragement from my family. I seek your prayers for the same. Kindly guide me in the journey to be a better half of Jesus My Savior. Requesting to keep this confidential, I conclude.

Yours faithfully

I just received a very scary call from my mom that Joseph's doctor called with his lab reports noting that all of his levels are off and that he's bleeding internally. His belly is distended and needs to be rushed down to Houston Methodist Hospital immediately. It's been nearly a year since my poor brother has had to endure a hospital trip, but anytime there's internal bleeding you have to act quickly.


Please please join our family in lifting up my brother in prayer during this extremely critical time. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!


Please pray that I will be promoted to a Band 8 this first quarter. It has been 10 years since I got a promotion and everyone agrees that I should have been promoted already. Last year was an exceptionally good year at work, so please pray that the progress I made last year will get me promoted this first quarter. I work from home to take care of my 3 kids better. Please pray that I will be able to continue to work from home and that it will not be an issue with my promotion.

Thank you for your prayers.
