A joyfully Franciscan view of Catholic life, inspired by St. Clare (Santa Chiara) of Assisi!

Chiara Offreduccio (St. Clare) was born in 1194. It is said that when her mother had Chiara in her womb, an angel appeared to her and said, "your child will be a light that will illuminate the world!" Hence, her mother named the child Chiara, which means "light. As G.K. Chesterton put it, St. Clare was a romantic figure just like Juliet was. However, instead of running away from her family in order to be with an earthly man, Clare gave up everything and ran away from her family for the love of her Savior!

Nuns/Sisters Who Accept Online Prayer Requests

Over the past week, I found myself linking back to last week's Notre Dame post, where I included links to nuns/sisters who accept online prayer requests. In emergency situations, it's helpful to know that you can have these wonderful ladies praying for you and your intentions literally at the click of a mouse. I found that some of them- the Carmelites- even respond to me with very sweet personal notes letting me know that they are praying for me.

Here is a list of all the nuns/sisters that accept prayer requests online:

Contemplative Nuns at Prayer- Provided by the Archdiocese of St. Louis

Carmelite Nuns of Eldridge, Iowa

Carmelites of the Sacred Heart, Wisconsin

Carmelites, Worcester, MA

Discalced Carmelite Nuns at San Antonio, Texas

Cistercian Nuns

Poor Clares, Bothwell, Scotland

Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration

Poor Clare Colettines of Ty Mam Duw, Wales

Poor Clare Colettines of Barhamsville, Virginia

Sisters of St. Francis of Perpetual Adoration, Mishawaka, IN

Benedictine Nuns of St. Walburga Monastery

Passionist Nuns

Dominican Sisters of Springfield, IL

Dominican Nuns of Summit, NJ

Dominican Nuns of St. Jude, AL

Please please pray for me and Gabriele. My name is Chiara and I have been in a 4 year relationship with Gabriele. I realised too late just how much I love this man and want to spend the rest of my life with him. Please pray that Gabriele may let go of past resentments, fears and doubts and give us another chance. I will respect, honour, appreciate and take care of this man with all my heart and soul. I am in so much pain and have been for 5 months now; please God help relieve the pain and daily angst I feel; I can't take much more of this. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ- Amen.

dear sisters in christ

a court case is pending against me for the last six years. due to this i didn't get a government job so far. i need a complete deliverance from this court case in this year itself through THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS. The main hindrance is the court case in securing the job. So I kindly request you to keep me in your prayers so that i will be free from this bondage very soon. Now i am jobless, frustrated, and in deep mental agony hence i need your constant prayer support.

thanking you in Jesus name

Please pray for us that the couple looking at purchasing my home see all the good qualities that is have to offer. Please let them be "the ones". Thank you Lord for leading them to my home. It would be a good fit for them and the neighbors. Please let them see this. The house is in a great location near a nature preserve, churches, good schools and easy access to get to where you need to go. Thank you for your grace Lord and the blessing that you give us.

"please all nuns pray this with me, Lord Jesus, I need You. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of the throne of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be. i understand that sin is breaking of Gods commandments, and i understand that Christ died on the cross to pay for the punishment of my sins. I understand that i cannot earn my way into heaven thru good works for ephesians 2:8-9 says for it is by grace alone we are saved. i understand that sin is like lieing, stealing, etc. i have sinned against you and i deserve hell but Christ you proved your love to me on the cross by dieing and shedd your blood so that i could receive forgiveness of sins and rose on the third day to show that i can come from a sinful life and walk in a new life if i receive you into my heart so hOly Spirit i ask you to come into my heart today and i confess all known sins to you today and ask you to show me how to share the gospel with others and show others that we need to recognize our evils, turn from our sins, and understand it is thru the cross that we can receive forgiveness and we cannot earn bonus points with God, it is an act of surrender of will to receive HOly Spirit in our lives."

Please pray this prayer with me:

Heavenly Father, my dear Lord, we thank you for the tremendous gift you have given JP and me in the form of our relationship together. Free our hearts and spirits to embrace, trust, and adore the love we receive from each other, and please see to it that there are no longer any limits to our love or impingements in the expression of our love for each other. Remove all boundaries and barriers and bring us together united as one in love and devotion to God through each other. Immerse JP and I in intense and beautiful love for the Lord, and through God for each other, every second of every day. Please give us amazing quality time to spend with each other every day. Enable us to grow in our intimacy, romance, connection, and commitment to/with each other through You. Teach us the beauty of forgiveness so we may become more and more one in heart, spirit and intellect, and trust each other without hesitation. Strengthen our communication with each other and help us become living signs of the love You have for each of us--validating, uplifting, and making each other's happiness and commitment to the relationship our absolutely priority. Please provide all the resources we need to achieve success and longevity in our relationship. Help us to be examples of commitment, love, care, and service to each other and the world. Make us a sign of the unity which Jesus prays for at the Last Supper. We open ourselves to the guidance and the miracles of grace offered by Your Holy Spirit, who empowers us to love each other in Jesus' name and walk in His footsteps. For a lifetime of joy, light, romance, connection and full immersion in love with each other, I request humble and say Thank You! In jesus' name I pray, AMEN!

Please, Lord, provide for me that I quickly find full time employment that I enjoy and which pays me a lot of money. Please see to it that the business endeavor JP and I are currently working on is successful and bears fruit for us for the rest of our long lives. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN!

Please, Lord, ensure that I lose a significant amount of weight quickly and healthily. That my body have the endurance and strength to bring me the beautiful body I've always dreamed of. I am thankful to God for my body. Please see to it that everytime I look at myself I am proud of and confident in what I see. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN!

I exalt your name and I trust in your speedy grace. I love you, My Dear God. THANK YOU!

Lord in your mercy, hear my prayers. May they all be in your will. I pray for the reconciliation of my marriage and my family. A home, employment and a ministry. My heart is crushed but I am at peace in you O God. I humble myself before you tonight Heavenly Father and pray you look with pity on this sinner saved by your abundant grace. My faith and trust is totally in you. Lord in your infinite mercy, you know I don't want a divorce. Lord hear my cry, take mercy on my prayers. I only have 15 days left until the pending divorce becomes final. I am asking you O Lord, that you look not on my sins but forgive me and lift these prayers up into a miracle of your divine love. One that restores, brings hope, offers love and reconciles my marriage and family back together. One that transforms our lives under your holy righteousness. O Lord I pray earnestly that you look on us and make the world known through this prayer your almighty power. Let your light shine and be recognized among those who doubt and scoff at your mercy. I lay before your throne tonight, begging for your actions to be implemented. In you I have hope Father God. Through you Christ, I have love. By you Holy Spirit, I have endurance. Lord have mercy in my request. Use me for your purpose to proclaim the goodness and joy you have blessed me with. To share the Good News through my words, actions and deeds. May I follow Mother Mary's example by being faithful and relying on you and your precious word. In The Name of Christ I Pray. Amen+
