This condition cleared up enough that she could return to work – PTL!!!!! Not long after that return, the shop where she worked was shut down because of COVID.

Making a slow but measurable recovery after an extended stay in ICU. Back home, but still in lots of pain and discouraged because cigarettes have come back into the picture. We need some help getting out of that cycle. Also thanks be to God who helped with an unanticipated forced-relocation – cancelled lease. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS!

Recovery is progressing and she is starting to be able to walk again!

Missed out on an opportunity to move to PA, so still needs prayer to get past the pain, the multiple illnesses and infections, and to get out of her current living situation to a place where she can receive competent medical care. Recurring illnesses cause much discomfort and frustration with frequent trips to ER or Clinic with little progress. This is emotionally draining – to have so much to persist without pause, yet her faith sustains her as she willingly submits all to our Messiah. Immune system is NOT cooperating and there are many comorbidities that make life especially painful and difficult. We appreciate your daily help!

Please pray the docs get it right away and that’s the end of it. Also, after a leave of absence, looking for new employment, maybe something not too demanding
The families and caregivers for all of these folks. Lord give them strength and respite. Lord, hear our prayer. AMEN.

COVID-19 VIRUS PRAYER: Dear God of all the living, you sent your Son Jesus to heal us from illness and sin. We turn to his healing power in this time of anxiety over the pandemic of this potentially deadly virus. St. Damien and St. Marianne Cope dedicated their lives to the service of those who had an infectious disease. St. Marianne Cope said, “I am not afraid of any disease,” because she was confident in your power to save. At the same time, she took prudent precautions of hygiene to assure that she and her Sisters would not be infected. Let us learn from this example to put our trust in you to save us from the ravages of disease and to take prudent measures to prevent its spread. Guide us to know when to isolate ourselves from the possibility of infection, but never let anyone be left without the care and concern of others in the community. As our Diocese of Honolulu has been dedicated to the Divine Mercy, we pray with confidence, “Jesus, I trust in you.” Saint Damien, pray for us! Saint Marianne, pray for us! ~~ By Bishop Larry Silva

Please pray with us here at Share-a-Prayer.


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.
