Intentions for February 2014

 

“Dear sisters, I would like to ask you for your prayers, because I am very exhausted and almost desperate. Please pray that the Lord will deeply heal every moment of my life before conversion with His unconditional love and give me every grace I need for deep healing of my soul. Many years after conversion my soul has been terribly tormented with painful darkness, devilish oppressions and deep guilt; I am almost not able to pray for years. Only His grace can help me. May God bless you for everything.”
