Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

Mary, Helper of All in Danger, pray for those in need


I feel just awful for the people who are in the Louisiana flood plains bracing to lose everything they own. I know there are people who are suffering as a result of the floods upriver, but to know that the government is going to intentionally flood you out of your home is a tough one to take. I wouldn't want to be the governor of the state, nor the Army Corps of Engineers. No one down there has an easy job today.

Mother Mary pray for them. Pray for us.

DAVID, Jacques-Louis
St Roch Asking the Virgin Mary to Heal Victims of the Plague

We fly to thy patronage, O holy Mother of God;
Despise not our petitions in our necessities,
but deliver us always from all dangers,
O glorious and blessed Virgin.



  1. ~Joining all those in prayer for the people of the floods of 2011~

  2. Isn't that just awful? They've been heavy on my heart ever since I read about that last night. :-(

  3. Yes--that has to be so rough! Adding my prayers as well.

  4. Thank you Barb for keeping the flood victims plight out there and calling for prayer. They need it desperately.


I appreciate your comments -- sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself!
