Intercessory Prayer List

This list is based on requests to the MBN for our intercession. It is updated periodically, so please return here often. Thank you for visiting here. May God richly bless you for the time you spend here praying for with and about our brothers and sisters who ask us to stand with them before God’s Throne. Sections in Italics are new.

Special URGENT REQUEST for Pastor S. Moon. He has a very serious eye infection and a severely suppressed immune system and very low White Blood Cell Count (leukopenia) due to prolonged chemotherapy for leukemia. He is currently in danger of losing his left eye and possibly part of the orbit. A biopsy of the debrided tissue revealed that the infection is a  fungal organism. Chemo is being withheld temporarily so doctors can pursue IV therapy for this infection. This is a serious setback because chemo was supposed to run 30 continuous days. We are praying that his immune system will make enough of comeback that the leukemia will not get the upper hand while they try to save his eye. Wife, Colleen, and children have confidence in the power of your prayers. Let’s get busy on this, MBN!

Please see the Intercessory Prayer List toward the end of this page. THANK YOU!

Father, I take a moment to remember everyone in the Moon Beam Network. Watch over them all. Bless them. Protect them. Guide them. Direct them. Keep them all safe from any harm or danger in body mind and spirit. See to their temporal needs and continue to call them all to a deeper spiritual awareness of and commitment to you through Jesus. Increase their faith and fill them with your Light. Bless everyone who prays for us and everyone who asks for our prayers. Bless all of us with the will to do small things with great love, that love which we share among all of the members of the Moon Beam Network. Likewise bless everyone I have ever loved and everyone who has ever loved me, and anyone who has ever loved them, for the love we have comes from You through Your Son Jesus the Christ by the ministry of The Holy Spirit. AMEN.

Prayer for Vocations
Heavenly Father, Your Divine Son taught us to pray to the Lord of the harvest to send laborers into his vineyard. We earnestly beg you to bless our Diocese and our world with many priests, deacons, and religious who will love you fervently, and who will spend their lives, gladly and courageously, in service to Your Son’s Church, especially the poor and needy.

Bless our families and our children, and choose from our homes those whom you desire for this holy work. Teach them to respond generously and keep them ever faithful in following Your Son, Jesus Christ, that under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and with the inspiration of Saint Damien and Saint Marianne the Good News of Redemption will be brought to all.

Father we also pray for those men and women who have already answered Your call as St. Damien and Saint Marianne did. Strengthen and guide them in serving You through the work that they do. Bless them for the sacrifices they make to bring souls into the Kingdom. We especially pray for your servants who go out into the world as missionaries to carry the Good News and the Sacraments to every land and nation.

Please, Lord, touch also the hearts and minds of our laity to come forward to serve in the ministries of our parishes and encourage many parishioners to volunteer time, talent, and treasure to help our parish be a blessing to our community through their compassionate service to others. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
