The two most powerful weapons I know I can use against evil is prayer and fasting. In case it is not the will of God that is preventing people I know from conceiving children, but because of some kind of evil, I am praying for them. I would also like to do a special fast: I’m quitting coffee. My Lord, you know how much I love coffee. You know how I can’t wait to go to sleep because it means I get to have my morning cup the next day. You know how much value I put into the ritual of making coffee, more so than (I’m ashamed to admit) the ritual of your holy liturgy during Mass.
My Lord and Savior, since you know how much I love coffee, I hope you’ll take that into consideration as I pray for the following people:
- Paul & Helen
- Husband & Cecy
- Mark & Lise
- Glenn & Renee
- Gary & Kathy (Added 01/07/2013)
- Jason & Nora (Added 01/13/2013)
- Billy & Jennifer (Added 01/13/2013)
- Daniel & Tiffany (Added 01/16/2013)
Dear Jesus, if you don’t mind, I would also like to add the following people who are already expecting to my fasting and prayers:
- Eric & Renee
- Husband & H.S. Baik
- Husband & G. Sung
- Vinson & Chiaki (Added 01/16/2013)
I will not take Tylenol to take away the headaches, but pray to unite my humble suffering to your greater one.
If I may ask just one consolation… to be able to drink caffeinated tea for the first few days. I’ll stop coffee and all caffeine in the new year.
Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be…

Dear Lord, thank you so much for this beautiful life and for loving me. You have always been so kind to me..I know I have disappointed You many times through my words and actions and I don’t deserve Your forgiveness but Lord please do not abandon me.
Since last 2 years me and my husband have been trying for a baby without any success due to unknown reason. I feel so helpless though I haven’t given up my hopes yet. I have faith in You, Lord. Please listen to my prayer and shower your blessings upon us so that by Your grace I conceive with a healthy baby soon.
Return to 7 Daily Prayers to Get You Through The Week
Let us pray to our dear Heavenly Mother for all those who wish to be blessed with children in their lives. The Blessed Virgin Mary is the mother of our Lord Jesus Christ and our heavenly mother too. Who can understand us better than our Heavenly Mother.
Mother of Christ, you were graced by God with the privilege of bearing our Divine Savior. You experienced the joys and challenges of being a parent. Your life was blessed with seeing Jesus grow from infancy and childhood, into his adult years of teaching a ministry. With St. Joseph, you created a home for your family to love and share together.
Please intercede before the God of all life, that (here mention names) may conceive a baby and raise healthy children, with whom they can share the Lord’s good gifts.
May their children honor them and You by lives of virtue and caring for others. May their home be holy and their family be blessed with health, happiness and abiding love. Amen.
