Jesus took bread said the blessing...said, 'This is My Body' Mt. 26:26

Stained glass can inspire, console and help us to focus our thoughts and prayersBefore the days of printing, stained glass and sacred art helped teach believers many lessons of Christian faith.

"And I tell you, ask and you shall receive; seek and you shall find; knock and the door shall be opened for you. For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened."
(Luke 11:9-10)

Lord, it is easy for us to accept blessings, help us to be grateful for the many blessings you send us! Teach us the meaning of suffering, and help us in our times of trial and distress. Amen!

Jesus' suffering redeemed the world - let us learn how to give thanks for our blessings, and to grow from our suffering.  Amen!

"Consider it all joy, my bretheren, when you encounter various trials, for you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverence be perfect, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly, and he will be given it. But let him ask in faith, not doubting for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed about by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord, since he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways."
(James 1:2-8)

"Answer when I call, my saving God.
In my troubles, you cleared a way:
show me favor; hear my prayer."

(Psalm 4: 1-2)

"You ask, but you do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to indulge yourself and your passions."
(James 4:3)

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat [or drink], or about your body, what you will wear...Look at the birds in the sky, they do not sow or reap, they gather nothing into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not more important than they?...Seek first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all other things will be given to you as well."
(Mt. 6:25,26,33)

Father in heaven, I praise you! You Created me, all people and things out of love. You loved me, and the people of this world so much, that you gave your Son to suffer for my sins, and the sins of others.

Father, hear my prayers and the prayers of all your people who are in need. I lift up to you everyday Father all the prayers posted in this chapel. I unite my prayers with all the prayers being said at the holy Masses being said throughout the world.

And, if it is Your will, Father, let everyone who asks here, receive from You. Father, bless everyone who comes in prayer before you, those who are in need, those who are thankful, and those who are crying out to you. Father, we need you in our lives to guide us, teach us and heal us. Father, I ask this in the Name of Your Son, my Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.

a candle reminds us that our prayers rise up, like smoke, into the heavens...a candle reminds us that our prayers rise up, like smoke, into the heavens...

Hi my name is Robert. I am 43 years old and I live in Albuquerque,New Mexico,USA. I wish for my last name to remain private. A few years ago I put something on my face that was homemade and supposed to be good for the skin. It actually caused a small tiny bit of damage back then but over the years the skin on my face has gotten worser and worser. Now I have some scars,many deep skin craters,blemishes,imperfections,uneven skin layers. No job or insurance at this time.I am crushed by this. Please pray for a miracle on the skin on my face. Pray for God to take away the scars,deep skin craters,blemishes,imperfections,uneven skin layers, off the skin on my face and to make them vanish and disappear in Jesus name. Pray for all the damage done to be undone and for the skin on my face to become complete and whole again like in the past. I feel very sad and depressed over this and I dont know how much longer I can hold on. Please pray for me and send to others to pray for me. Thanks, I appreciate it.

In August of 2005 my husband John Medeiros was diagnosed with colon cancer .Lots of tests were ordered and they found 2 tumors in his liver. On a Tuesday, I went to Mass and prayed in front of the Blessed Sacrament for my husband, and I asked the priest to pray for my husband ,he was going to have surgery the next Monday. He told me you already prayed and Jesus already healed your husband. I believed it.On Monday after the surgery Dr Hyde told us my husband was fine they had taken out all the colon cancer but they could not do a biopsy or anything to his liver because they could not find the 2 tumors on his liver . Today 10 months later my husband is fine and working,all thanks to Jesus. We have all the tests that show the tumors,plus all the reports and tests proving that he was healed without any medical treatment to his liver. Jesus is the True Healer, and Medicine. All we have to do is Pray and believe and accept His Holy Will . He knows always what’s best for us. Today was the first time I found you and I was so happy that people is praying in the internet. I to will pray for all your intentions.

Please pray for my family and I’m praying for yours. Love Fernanda Medeiros.

P.S. I want to thank Our Lord Jesus Christ for healing my husband for giving us faith, and I want to tell all of you whenever you can visit Jesus, because HE really is Present in the Blessed Sacrament and He loves us and wants to heal us.

Lord cancer is an evil darkness we do not understand.
Help us face that darkness together
with our families, friends and care givers with courage and strength.

Strengthen us, give us courage, give peace to those we love
as we walk into that darkness. Hold us, carry us in your loving hands.

Guide the way and comfort those who have lost loved ones.

Give your strength to those who are suffering and touch them with your healing tender touch.

Give those who care for us the knowledge and compassion to lighten our load and bring relief from fear and pain.

Father I asked that you show mercy on those who are touched by any illness, such as Aids, Heart conditions, or Stroke. I ask, Lord, that you do not allow illness to rob us of our joy in the life you gave us.

May we walk into your light with the full knowledge that you promised that we will not have a load greater than we can bear.

Please Lord help us live every moment to the fullest, we ask this your Son Jesus. Amen

This prayer is from SkipD, who has personally suffered from cancer.

Matthew 10:16

August A.D. 1998


I bind to myself today through the strong virtue of love, The strong name of the Trinity, By invocation of the same, the three one, one in three. I bind to myself today through the virtue of faith The incarnation of Christ, His crucifixion, burial, resurrection and ascension. I bind to myself today The virtue of love of the seraphim, In obedience of the angles, In hope of resurrection to reward, In prayers of patriarchs, In predictions of prophets, In preaching of apostles, In faith of confessors, In purity of virgin souls, In deeds of righteous humanity.

I bind to myself today the power of Heaven, The light of the Sun, The brightness of the Moon, The splendor of Fire, The flashing of Lightening, The swiftness of Wind, The depth of Sea, The stability of Earth, The compactness of Rock.

I bind to myself today God's power to guide, God's might to uphold, God's wisdom to teach, God's eye to watch over me, God's ear to hear me, God's word to give me speech, God's hand to guide me, God's way to lie before me, God's shield to protect me.

Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ on my right hand, Christ on my left hand, Christ where I lie, Christ where I sit, Christ where I arise. Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me. Christ in the mouth of every man who speaks to me. Christ in the eye of every man who sees me. Christ in ears of every man who hears me.

I bind to myself through a mighty strength, The invocation of the Trinity, Through belief in the Threeness, Through confession of the oneness of the creator of creation. Salvation is of the Lord.
