Do you have any triggers that remind you to pray for others?
This topic came up on an email list when one friend said she writes the names of people who have asked for prayers on the packets of injections she has to take every 12 hours. She offers up prayers and the discomfort for that person as she injects herself. Another friend offers up her migraines for people on her prayer list.
Another friend prays for the people in cars going by as she waits at a red light and for the passengers in airplanes that fly by overhead. I know many people who pray for the victims and the doctors when they hear an ambulance’s siren.
My Mother-In-Law prays for the person who gave her a gift whenever she sees or uses that gift.
I pray for my parents and siblings whenever the clock says 6:19 or 9:16, as these numbers showed up in various addresses we had while I was growing up. I pray for my children when the clock says 1:23 or 12:34: It reminds me of our home school (learning to count).
Last night our family drove home from the home of my husband’s grandmother. She was 92 years old when the Lord called her home on Thursday, July 12. All of her children and many of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were with her when she died.
The Rosary was held on Monday of this week, and the funeral Mass was on Tuesday. The ceremonies attached to these events were beautiful and dignified, as was the life of our Nana. Please pray for the repose of her soul as well as for the strength of the family to carry on without her here.
Please pray! I know someone who needs a large sum of money TODAY. If you would please pray that somehow this money will materialize before midnight, it would be greatly appreciated. Please pray for this person to be able to trust God as well. I beg of you to implore heaven. Give your Guardian Angel something to do: Send him on an urgent mission.
