Prayer Requests

One of the many benefits of being a Christian is knowing that others will go to God on your behalf.  Prayer DOES work.  Prayer has moved God to perform many modern day miracles. It was known far and wide, while Christ walked the earth, that He could heal people and did heal many.

For those with health concerns, financial concerns or relationship concerns, among many others, they will find comfort in knowing that others are praying on their behalf.  Send your prayer requests to News of Joy for inclusion on this page. See some of the updates below also to see how God has worked in these lives.

Send us your prayer requests to be included on this page. It can make a big difference.

  • Please pray for Suzanne Cataldo, who was just rushed to the ICU with COVID (9/7/21) and was only given a 20% chance of surviving, and while there, they also discovered that she has an advanced and aggressive Leukemia. She needs prayers to survive the COVID and then to tolerate chemo and get better. Only God can intervene and produce healing in situations like this.

  1. Please pray for me and my family. I am 64 living with my son and his girlfriend taking care of 21 month old granddaughter. They are splitting up and my son isn’t working since pandemic. They both have addictions. I collect early ss which is only 1000/month and we have to find a place to live within 3 days. I am struggling hard with all of this. I know God is with me and I will get through this. I need prayer for strength finances and a place to live. I only have a bed, dresser and personal belongings. No other furniture, kitchen appliances, etc. It’s going to be a huge challenge but I have the spirit guiding me. I am thankful that I’m breathing. Happy Easter and blessings ❣️

  2. Gloria……..on this Easter Sunday, you have my prayers and I’m sure the prayers of anyone else who reads this. Have faith that God will see you through this season.
