7 Quick Takes Friday (#33)

Hosted by Betty Beguiles this week!

The beauty of the Catholic Church is that we always have a Prayer Army to call upon in our time of need! 
  1. I started a novena to St. Joseph this week. Will you keep my novena intention in your prayers?
  2. My youngest sister is getting confirmed in May, and has asked me to be her sponsor. Will you pray for her, especially as she is going on her retreat on Monday?
  3. A good friend has two very difficult exams today. Will you pray for the Holy Spirit to bring him calm and peace during this stressful time?
  4. Please keep one of my good friends from home in your prayers. I get the feeling that he is struggling a lot with his faith right now. Please pray that he will be led back to the Church, and pray that I can know how to better reach out to him with love and understanding.
  5. I have been asked to help lead a retreat for young adults. Will you pray for our retreat core leadership team as we work over the next six weeks to plan a powerful retreat experience for ourselves and those who join us for a weekend away?
  6. Let's pray for our priests! For the ones who always try to speak the truth. For the ones who speak the truth gently. For the ones who speak the truth forcefully. For the ones who cause people to leave the pews because they can't handle the truth. For the ones who no longer know the truth. For the ones who no longer care about the truth. Our priests are one of our most powerful weapons against the evils of this world, and we need them all fighting for Christ and his Church. St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle!
  7. I would be happy to pray for your intentions as well. Do you have any special intentions you would like me to remember in my prayers this week?
Here is a great recording of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy set to song. One of my friends found it this past week, and I've found comfort in it. I hope you enjoy it, too!

  1. wow that is a lot of intentions! That is awesome about the young adult retreat! I love retreats! I'm helping with our confirmation retreat in April :)

    Can you pray for one of our priests, Father Jeff, he had a heart attack 2 weeks ago he is doing fine but has to "take it easy" for several weeks and that can be hard (esp priests that are always go go go).

  2. I will definitely be praying for your intentions. Please pray for my mom who has to undergo more radiation and my dear friend who just found out she has he same thyroid cancer my mom had (she's only 25)?
