Let us pray for gratitude for all that we have & keep before us those in need. May God bring peace and love to all my family until it overflows to others. May they all see the God Who is ever present within and around them.

Dear Lord God, I pray for all my loves, family and friends with us on earth and those with you in heaven, Bless them and care for them all. Especially Kobe who has a form of epilepsy and Tymon who is struggling to settle to a decent job to support his beautiful daughter. Lord I also pray for our world and all who try to do their best to keep it green and beautiful. Thank you Lord. Amen

I pray that my husband will become a Christian and my three children and their spouses. I pray that my grandchildren will discover Jesus is alive and follow Him too. I pray for my nephew that his life may be transformed by the Holy Spirit. I pray that friends who don’t know Jesus may ask me about Him and seek Him. I pray for Bruce, Rosemary and all who work in this ministry.

Hi Bruce, I have started by own business and although it’s been tough especially through Covid- I need the strength to believe and know that God is all knowing and maybe the time isn’t right but in hope that it will come.

Lord God, I thank you for your presence in my life. I pray for my family – my loving husband; my son who has a drinking problem; for my eldest daughter who is recovering from the effects of cancer; for my younger daughter and grand-daughter who live with financial stress. I pray for the peace that only you can bring. May my family feel your presence in their lives.

Bruce, your daily messages have filled the void during Covid when we were not allowed to attend Mass or were greatly restricted. Thank you so much. Please pray that my wonderful family will return to the faith for themselves and their children. The outside pressures are so huge now. Please pray that the world will find a way out of this awful mess that it’s in and that our world leaders will spread faith and love instead of hatred and violence. I wish you and your family a happy and holy Christmas.

Thank you Bruce for your inspiring words in this Advent season. Your voice and words are so filled with hope and optimism even when we as humans are weak and sinful. You inspire me to keep trying to be the best person I can be even when I fail daily!
Bless you and the team abundantly.

I pray for my wife who suffers from dementia, but in that suffering we know and feel God’s presence and support for each other and we realise that, despite the difficulties, we are lucky to have each other, something that will never be taken from us in our lives. Sometimes life may seem harsh yet in ways we are rewarded in a special way. We pray that our family can see this too and share in it.

Thank you for praying. Could you please pray for the following:
Thanks for family, health and jobs.
For one of my sons who is going through a tough season – that you would lead him through it and bless him with things he never imagined.
My children’s partners.
My older son and his wife are expecting twins, but it is a high-risk pregnancy – that the babies would grow and develop normally.
For my husband – that he would find joy in life.
For me to be able to reflect Jesus in my life.
Thanks!
