Hello Friends - Thanks for praying with us this past year. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and prayers to those who are in need. At this point, we ask that you please join us in giving thanks to God for 2005 and in welcoming 2006 with prayers for His Holy blessings.

Dear God,

As we approach the end of 2005, we thank You for all the wonderful blessings You have showered upon us. We thank You for protecting our family, for our health, and for the peace in our country. We thank You for Your unconditional love that continues to sustain us, despite our shortcomings. We know that You have blessed us, not according to what we deserve, but out of Your generous and deep love for us.

We love You, O dear God. We praise and glorify You. And we give thanks to You, our Almighty Father.

We ask that You continue to shower us with Your abundant blessings in 2006. We dedicate our lives to You, our dear God.
Grant us strength, wisdom and guidance to know and follow Your Holy Will. We pray that You guide us in our daily lives and open up opportunities for us to share Your love and blessings to others.

Almighty Father, we pray for the sick, the handicapped, the poor, and all the victims of abuse, war and calamities. Please heal them, help them, and comfort them. May they turn to You and find refuge in Your Love and protection. We pray that the new year brings them better health, inner peace, strength and will to rebuild and enrich their lives with Your love. Bless them, O dear God. Protect them.

We pray for all the children of the world. May they experience Your love, through the love, support and caring of those around them. May they get to know You, love You and become faithful followers of Jesus Christ.

We pray for the poor souls in purgatory, especially our beloved relatives, and those who have been forgotten by their own families. May their suffering in purgatory be short, and may they rise to heaven to be with You and experience eternal bliss.

We pray for peace around the world, especially in Iraq. We pray for our soldiers and those who dedicate their lives so that others may experience peace. Shield them, O God. Keep them safe. Nourish their weary bodies. Strengthen their will. We pray that they all come home at the soonest time possible and be reunited with their parents, spouses and children. We pray for the end of war. We ask for peace throughout the whole world.

We offer our daily lives to Your Holy intentions, to the intentions of Holy Mother Church and for the poor souls in purgatory.

We pray that you hear our intentions and grant our petitions (make your request here).

These we ask through Jesus Christ, our Savior and our Lord.

We also pray to our Beloved Blessed Mother, Mary the Mediatrix, to continue to pray and intercede for us.

Our Father....Hail Mary....Glory Be.
