Intentions for June 2014

       Intentions from our website – June 2014

 Hello, i came across this website today and i was happy to see it. I had studied in one of the schools run by FMM and was a good student .Deep down inside i still have the moral values taught to me by our sisters (nuns).However, the world i see and live function in a different manner that i get disappointed , lose confidence and give up easily. I have been through a lot of pain and agony trying to understand this world that has made me feel like no hope in life. I kindly request you to pray for me to settle down in a good job so that i can take care of my children and husband.

               Hello, I would be so blessed and grateful if you would be able to pray for my husband, ... He has a tormented soul because of hurt I have caused. I have done penance for my sins, have gotten baptized Catholic, and have changed my entire life to give to God, but my husband is following a dark path because of all the hurt and anger he has... Our daughter and I want him back in our lives, and we love him so much. Also, please pray for my Brother in law, as he is going through a very tough time in his marriage, too.

Please pray for me that I shall receive the Help from God to obtain the funding for my medical education/MBBS Degree,... I truly feel that I have a calling to pursue the career of a medical doctor, so that I can change the lives of people, for the positive.

 I have applied for MCA that person cheated me please pray that I should get the money back.
