Social Saturdays (1/22/11)

It's Saturday! That means we're chatting with the living and praying for the dead. 

Prayer Requests: 
  • For the soul of Kaye, who unexpectedly died this week, and the comfort of her family.
  • For the soul of Tim L., who passed away this week with the benefit of the Mysteries, and for the comfort of his family.
  • For the soul of Mother Nadia Baranik of the UGCC's Missionary Sisters of the Mother of God, who passed away yesterday, and for the comfort of those who will grieve her absence.
  • For all women who have had an abortion, that they find comfort, support, and repentance.
  • For all fathers, siblings, children, grandparents and others who suffered the loss of a loved one through abortion or euthanasia, that they be comforted in their grief.
  • For all who encourage, assist with, or perform abortions or euthanasia that they turn from the culture of death and begin to promote life.
  • For all judges, that their decisions respect God's law as well as their nation's.
  • For our seminarians, deacons, priests, bishops, religious, and catechists that they be a constant witness to the culture of life.
  • For all doctors and scientists, that their research and work always respect and protect life.
  • For all couples who are infertile and desire children, that their sadness be healed and transformed into a passion for life.
  • For Christians in Somalia, China, the Middle East, and around the world who are persecuted for their faith. 

Continuing Prayer Requests: 
  • For those attending the Walk for Life events scheduled across the United States today that they be a prayerful witness to the dignity of all human life and be protected in their travels. 
  • For the United States and its leaders, especially those in politics, media, and business, that they seek in word and action to do God's will with the authority they hold. 
  • For an abused woman and mother, A, who is in desperate straits and in need of many prayers.
  • For Kat's family, including their current and future children, that they be guided in discernment and finances in their next adoption. (Kat has other prayer requests at the link.)
  • For all of our clergy, religious, and monastics that they be directed in strength, courage, patience, and fortitude to radically live God's will for their lives. 
  • For mothers, that they not abort their offspring; for infants in danger of being put to death in the womb; for a change of heart of providers of abortions and of their collaborators; for human victims of stem cell research, genetic manipulation, cloning, and euthanasia; and for all entrusted with the government of peoples, that they may promote the "Culture of Life" so as to put an end to the "culture of death."
  • For Your Word From The Wise and all who are connected to it, that it may bring glory to God.
  • For the intentions of those who are praying.
Do you have a prayer request you'd like to add? Please put it in the comment box any time this week so we can pray with you.

What's going on at Your Word From The Wise?
  • I wrote and sent an interview which is being answered this weekend, God willing. The plan is to post it next week. Yay!
  • I have three interview topics that I'm in the planning stages on, in addition to those out already. I want to make sure I'm in a place to give them the attention they each deserve before pitching them.
  • With two family emergencies this week, I was happy to get posts up every day. I don't remember what else I accomplished. I am thankful that this venture does not rely on my expertise but is accomplished only through God's grace and for His glory. I'm also very grateful for the community of people I've met through it who prayed for us. Thank you!
  • Want to join this great group of people? Friend me on Facebook. The downside is you get me, but the upside is the great group of people who are also there!
