"First, we can pray in communion with the Church on earth and in heaven. Let us not underestimate the power of so many voices united in prayer!"           Pope Francis

____________________________________________________

This page is an invitation to anyone who wishes to put in their requests for prayer, and also (even better) an invitation to you  to pray for those who need our help.  It would be wonderful if we could ALL pray for these requests.  How powerful that would be!  

 

Email your prayer requests to admin@marnhullandgillinghamrc.org.uk.   We will not publish your email (or your name) and we will not publish any names in your request.  Confidentiality is absolutely assured.  Many of these requests come from people outside our parish, diocese and country so are unlikely to be identified.

For those in need:  Novena to Saint Jude and the Sacred Heart of Jesus:

 

May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be adored, glorified, loved, and preserved throughout the world, now and forever.  Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us. St. Jude, worker of miracles, pray for us.  St. Jude, help for the hopeless, pray for us.

There are many anxious and stressed people in the world living in extremely difficult circumstances, some are sick, some live in situations which are intolerable.  Emails are sent to this page from all over the world in the hope that someone will pray for them when they can’t see any other way out of their situation.   Some want to be nameless and ask that we don’t reply as it leaves them open to abuse and worse, but desperately want to be heard.

We do hear you and we pray for you.  Hang on to knowing that God is Love and He walks with you through your difficulties and He will be using the trauma you are going through for Good in some way.  Remember too our Blessed mother Mary will be holding you in her heart through your trials.   God bless you all.

Dear heavenly Father, dear Lord Jesus, Help me to be a fine teacher, to keep peace in the classroom, peace between my students and myself, to be kind and gentle to each and every one of my students. Help me to be merciful to my students, to balance mercy and discipline in the right measure for each student, to give genuine praise as much as possible, to give constructive criticism in a manner that is palatable to my students. Help me to remain conscientious enough to keep my lessons always interesting, to recognize what motivates each of my students, to accept my students' limitations and not hold it against them. Help me not to judge my students too harshly, to be fair to all, to be a good role model, but most of all Lord help me to show your love to all of my students. In your Almighty name Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.
