Marian Prayer Corner


The Mary Page often receives requests for prayer. These intentions will be listed below as they are received (newest received are at the top of the list) and will be honored on the web for thirty days. These prayer requests are also included in the prayers of the Marianists and other communities of consecrated life.

We are happy to receive your petitions. Make them simple, clear and concise. Some may require a comment or explanation. Make it brief and put it after the petition. Petitions should avoid condemnation of individuals. When making political statements, be aware of all parties involved. God's grace is constructive; thus our prayers should be formulated positively. Be sure of your facts. Write as much in English as possible. Remember that we follow the Catholic understanding of intercession and grace. We have to evaluate the content of your submission. We may have to edit or refuse petitions if important requirements are ignored. Prayer requests posted on The Mary Page are included in the prayers of the Marianists and other communities of consecrated life. We invite you to join our extended prayer circle.

Mother Mary, take all of my tears and sufferings, every moment of my past and present for the souls in purgatory, conversions, the dying even if I do not say it. Talk to your Son about me and all the intentions I cry about and suffer about. I long for healing and changes in those things that I have asked for, for so long and now I feel so empty and lost because it has been so long and I can't find it in me to keep asking. Take me by the hand; I am very afraid. Help me to know you and love you because then I know I will be protected, please. Thank you and thank you for the special grace you gave me years ago, and for my husband and son and all you obtained for me and those I pray for.
