    • Hello Bernard

      Be assured of our prayers for your vocational discernment. We are glad that you seek help through prayers.

      We believe that God is knocking at the door of your heart – may He grant your request.

  2. I need plenty more belief, plenty more power of prayer and more Holy Ghost with me. Please pray also that God gives me gifts of God’s grace.

  3. Dear srs please pray that I may be always joyfully open to the Holy Spirit as I seek to follow Gods will
    may God bless you.

    • Dear Dominic

      Our Father Founder, St Annibale Maria Di Francia, was enlightened by the Holy Spirit, and he discovered the evangelical word Rogate ergo (Pray therefore). We pray that you may also be enlightened and discover God’s will in your life. May your heart be filled with His love and blessings.

  4. Dear Sir,
    I have just completed my attempt to enter a seminary in the Philippines… I wasn’t accepted and am now try to get my life together. I have head many encouraging things from friends and family that God has other plans for me, but still…. Having to explain to others as to why it didn’t happen brings me down. The best piece of encouragement I got was from my confession, the priest said, “God is teaching me on how to deal with disappointment.”

    Then while reading a Starswars book I found at home, I find a prayer to Madre Maria Nazarena hidden in the pages.. After looking her up I am lead to this site…LOL..Isn’t God Great! I know that the Holy Spirit is nudging me in His direction…

    Please pray for me that I don’t stop my self from doing God’s will.. I am so good at choosing the wrong things. DEVIN ZEAL sounds like what I should be praying for… Please help.

    And God Bless you and those of you who work to maintaining this web site and the prayers!!! Your saving life’s!

    • Dear Vince

      Thank you for sharing your story.

      Your priest is right in advising you that God is teaching you how to deal with your disappointment. In the vineyard of God there are many ways to help Him – we are all called to do His work. Perhaps you are one of these workers – to work wherever God guides you. Be open to all His inspirations. Mary, Mother of Vocations surely will be with you and guide you in finding the right work in God’s vineyard. Don’t be discouraged because the devil is trying to take you away from your faith or your hope – the Risen Lord will not allow this to happen to you!

      Regarding Mother Nazarena, she is our co-foundress and she gave her life for vocations and our congregation is dedicated to pray and support, in any ways, the people who are searching for discernment in their lives. However, you have to be open to whatever God inspires you to do. Don’t feel alone we, as Daughters of Divine Zeal, will pray for you that you will become a good and honest worker in God’s vineyard.

      As you are in the Philippines, if you would like more help with your vocation discernment, visit vocations.rcj.ph

      God bless you

    • Dear Kaye

      We will remember Ellie’s son, his family and yourself in our prayers. Your call for prayer, particularly in this time of need, is a sign of a blessed friendship. Jesus said, “For where two or three gather together in My name, there am I with them.” (Mt 18:20) Rest assured, then, that our Lord hears the prayers of His beloved children.

      God bless you always

  9. Dear Sisters in Christ,
    Please pray for my friend who have mental disorders. His name is P W Ming. Pray for healing and fast recovery. Thank you very much for your prayers. God bless you. With love.
    From: Arthur

    • Dear Dominic

      Prayer is the key to being receptive to the Holy Spirit. Prayer is the experience of being present with God, faithfully listening, trusting, and just like the Apostles at Pentecost, being filled with His Spirit which inspired them to go out and joyfully proclaim the Good News.

      We will pray that you shall be likewise inspired and receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit, particularly the fruit of joy in your life’s journey.

      God bless you

  10. Dear sisters,

    I’m Hanh, from Vietnam, and I’m a student in university. I have been strongly thirsty for becoming a religious sister when being a child until now. However, there are so much difficulties in my life at this time that I most have lost all strength to do anything. I don’t have enough self-confidence to meet any more superior after failing times.

    Please pray for me that I will be courageous to try again and there will be someone help me reply the deep call in my soul. The reason is that I have been not able stop my thirst, I could not stop thinking of the religious life for a long time. Wishing that some superior could listen, consider the gifts God gave me, empathy my situation, and support me to become a God’s laborer for His harvest.

    Sincerely,

    Hanh

    • Dear Hanh

      We read your prayer request and appreciate your courage to follow your desire and at the same time to ask for some advice. We understand that you entered into a certain religious congregation but somehow you were not able to continue due to some reasons. You even lost self-confidence and felt discouraged. Yes, you need courage and at the same time to be open to the one in charge.

      We pray that you will find a congregation that fits your personal charism. We also suggest that you try again and approach any congregation where you feel that you like their charism and their apostolate, and express your desires of entering religious life with them. Listen to what they say and pray to the Lord to guide and help you to see if you are called to the religious life or to any vocation like married life or single blessedness.

      We wish you all the best as you discern your vocation. If you have any more queries, feel free to ask. We will pray for you.

  11. I need prayer and deliverance by God against Satans kingdom of snake demons, familiar spirits, snack food demon, and any other that is my life. I want to be set permanently free. I want to be fully put into Gods hands and have a Christ-Like Mind. I want to follow what Jesus my intercessor to God has for me to do in my lifetime. I want all Satans strongholds to go to HELL. I need serious prayer and Thankyou very much + God Bless!

    • Dear Stephen

      We will surely pray for you. Our Father Founder, St Annibale Maria Di Francia said:

      “If we often meditate on the truths of faith, if we were often to the Divine presence, if we were fond of prayer, if we prayed for hours, if we were fully aware of the mysteries of faith in our actions all day long, what mutations would happen in us! Bit by bit, a ray of God’s infinite splendour would enter us, our mind would be filled with divine light, and darkness would be driven away. Through divine light we would know how to abhor evil and how to embrace good while a celestial fire would inflame our heart and move our will effectively.”

      We ask God to surround you with His love and protection, and to gather you ever closer to His Heart. May you always seek the Lord for His guidance – Jesus says: “I am the way and the truth and the life.” – and feel peace in His presence, for He is always with you in your joyful moments of life and when you experience challenges and trials. Never give up your desire to follow Jesus and to be like Him, for you belong to God and you are worthy of His love.

      God bless you

    Please do pray for my relationship with Mr. Ruban J, We both like each other but because of people in b/w me and Ruban have created many misunderstanding. Where with this confusion Ruban as stated that i dont like you Jyothi. I dont know why, But i came to know because of some people he is very much misunderstanding me and my family. But really Ruban is very good at heart, i know this. I tried to clear his confusion but right now we both dont talk with each other even we see.

I have got many insults due to this relationship but i trust Jesus because he put my head on top by making this marriage a successful one Ruban weds Jyothi. I bind this request in the blood of Jesus Christ Amen.

    • Dear Jyothi

      It is good that you are keeping close to Jesus and Mary in prayer for enlightenment as you reflect upon your situation in life. We can feel your longing for this vocation to marriage and we will pray for you, Ruban and all families that God’s will be done and that there will be an acceptance of His desire for your lives. Pray for peace in all hearts. God bless you.
