Blessed are you, O Lord, the God of our fathers, praiseworthy and exalted above all forever; And blessed is your holy and glorious name, praiseworthy and exalted above all for all ages. (Daniel 3:52)


Prayer Project Praise One of the unemployed for whom we were praying, Shirley, got a job! Louis got a temporary job and Gordon has a formal job offer! All praise and thanksgiving to our merciful Lord!

EMERGENCY PRAYER REQUEST: For wisdom, fortitude, and prudence as Gordon considers his job offer. (Please pray hard on this one as the choices are very difficult for him.)


For Linda who will have to have some surgery to help correct the problem that has led to so much illness.

For Audrey, who is battling anorexia, and to her family which is suffering through very difficult times.

For Grace Enriquez, director of my Carmelite community, for rapid and complete recovery from her surgery of 6 January 2004.

Continued prayers for Christine's father that he effect a complete recovery from his recent crisis.

For T.S. O'Rama's Grandmother who is experiencing a very difficult change in living arrangements

For Robert Walsh and his family.

For Jeanetta's friend Mike who is battling non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma

For Dylan's return to health and return to us.

For Franklin's father, Bill, who is more seriously ill than had been previously thought. For his family that they are all able to cope with these circumstances.

For Karen Marie Knapp as she recovers from her recent hospitalization.

For the men and women of the American Armed forces in Iraq and Afghanistan and for their families, may the Good Lord provide sustenance, support, compassion, and love that these separated families might continue to grow in strength and love.

Special Prayer Projects:

(1) Chris Keith, the young lady whose biopsy went poorly got the results of that biopsy--carcinoma of the liver. The cancer is metastatic from colon cancer. Surgery has taken place to treat the colon cancer.

I paraphrase her mother:

"We [members of the family] are standing on the Rock and are rock solid. We are all okay and we are looking for a few prayer warriors to help us in this battle." Because this mother means so much to me for the great good she has done for my friends, I plan to stand with her and her family in this battle, and I invite you all to join me. Expect to hear about this on and off over the next few months.

(2) For Katherine's Mom as she undergoes chemotherapy--that the treatment is successful and her mother comes through this ordeal with a deeper sense of God's abiding love for her.

(3) For Katherine and Franklin, Christine and Gordon, Janet and Louis, Bill Doran, and for all who are seeking employment and suffering through difficult times as they wait.

(4)Healthy Pregnancies and good and safe deliveries: From Davey's Mom: I am with child once again and could use prayers for a healthy pregnancy. For Suki, for a healthy pregancy and a safe delivery. For Ashli and her child that doctors may find a way to help her carry her young one to term.

I welcome the addition of other requests via the comment box. Thank you for keeping this poor Carmelite employed.

Steven, please pray for Deb T., the formation director of our Secular Carmelite Community. She is going through a mighty struggle to find work, and is learning once more how to utterly abandon herself to holy poverty. Good employment is a great need here, she is highly qualifies in more than one field and yet can find no employment. She is, as well,nearly at the end of her resources. Please pray for her!

All these intentions will be remembered in my rosaries.


Thank you all for your prayers. Franklin's father has been in hospital since Christmas night. He has an angioplasty scheduled for Monday. Tuesday they plan to move him from the hospital to a rehab facility.

I am happy to hear of the answers to prayer for several on this list. Franklin is with his father so is not looking for work at the moment.
