+ + + Pray + + +

Psalm-prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours Morning Prayer:

God our Father, great builder of the heavenly Jerusalem, you know the number of the stars and call each of them by name. Heal hearts that are broken, gather together those who have been scattered, and enrich us all from the plenitude of your eternal, wisdom.

Let us pray…


I love to pray.
I look forward to praying while I pray.
I have a journal on my nightstand where I keep a list of your requests.
It’s something I can always do for you – even when you think no one can possibly help.
I can offer prayers, small sacrifices, happiness and sadness I experience for anyone and everyone at anytime.
I read somewhere that whenever someone has a great day, they should know there are unknown prayers being prayed for them to make it so.
It’s those prayers that are lifting you up.
Your great day is God being presented with prayer bouquets on your behalf.
I really like that imagery.
And you thought no one prayed for you?

We would just like to ask, in return for our prayers, that you, dear friends, find someone to pray for. Whether the intention is for someone here in the comment box, a person walking past you on the street, your spouse, your boss, souls in purgatory, a priest, the unborn, a friend or an enemy – pray for them. I find this this the best way to stay grounded and compassionate; to know that we could all use an extra prayer in the spiritual bouquet to our Lord.

My friend S, also said that the prayers of children are especially strong. I believe it’s because of their purity, sincerity and trust in God. So, Monk and Lexicon will be praying for you too. At Mary’s grotto of course!

Won’t you let us pray for you?

Please leave your prayer request below.

  1. Please pray for my father. He is a great man and has a heart of gold. He has been through many hardships. It seems as though he doesn’t get a break. Please pray for the Lord to bless him and reward him for being so selfless, even when people take advantage of him.


    1. It seems there are so many of us in this predicament. We can be rest assured our Father knows what we suffer for he suffered it all on the cross for us. I will pray for your father. I will pray the fourth Luminous Mystery for him: for spiritual courage.


  2. I have a tremendous tooth ache & no money or insurance to see the dentist. Also, please pray for my family that we’ll find an affordable place to live, in a safe neighborhood, before winter.

    Thank you & God bless you!


    1. I will also pray the fourth Luminous mystery for you today. For spiritual fortitude to weather this season of your life. I will keep you close in prayer. I pray you feel better soon, dear Monica.
