Lord, Hear our Prayers

The Twin Cities Team has been hitting the streets twice a month this summer, greeting people at Como Park and Thomas Beach with a smile, offering rosaries and Miraculous Medals, and most importantly, praying with people. The seeds that are planted when we listen to another person’s story and offer to bring that story and those needs to God, right then and there, are seeds that will bear fruit for sure. Jesus promised that when we gather and pray in His name, he answers our prayers. These are just some of the prayer requests we received over the last two outings:

Jennifer needs a new apartment, a dependable car, and healing from the rejection of her neighbors at her current apartment

Maria and her family from Mexico need healing for the ill people in their family

Josh, just relocated from Long Island to Brainerd for a new job, needs some peace and a faith community

10 men, members of MN Teen and Adult Challenge, an addiction recovery program, each asked for healing, stronger faith, continued perseverance in their treatment program and forgiveness. They offered to pray for us as well!

Millie and her mom Jennifer, originally from Kenya, stopped by again and asked for healing and strength of Millie’s marriage, that her citizenship process move forward, and for Jennifer’s continued health

Jamie and his dad, Jim, also returned and asked for a safe pilgrimage to Lourdes for Jamie. Jamie is confined to a wheel chair and we prayed for his healing of pain a month ago.

A woman who did not give her name, asked for healing for her uncle from cancer, but wasn’t sure she should ask because she was an atheist. We assured her that God hears everyone’s prayers. We encouraged her to consider rethinking her atheism.

A Baptist family visiting from Thailand all took rosaries and asked for safety and good family relations.

Shaylee would like a good start to high school in the fall, and then she and her mom brought us all waters on a hot Saturday!

Nikki needs healing from cancer.

A group of moms and young elementary kids from a local Catholic grade school were on their way to the zoo when the kids recognized the rosaries. We asked them if they had anything they would like to pray for and we all prayed together for those intentions. Then we explained we would take those intentions to adoration. When they didn’t know what adoration was, we were able to teach them about it, and encourage the moms to share this beautiful place of prayer with their kids.

If these stories have touched your heart, Jesus is calling you to join us! Contact me. I would love to share this amazing ministry with you!
