Sending prayer requests online can be the start of an awe-inspiring experience. It helps bring a sense of calm and trust to difficult situations, strengthens your Catholic community, and demonstrates the incredible power of prayer.

When you submit prayer requests through our website, members of our community respond to those requests with whole-hearted and joyful prayers for your intentions. To date, we have received and responded to more than 2,500 prayer requests online. All are welcome, and no request is too small or too big for our Lord.

“The Lord is near. Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Philippians 4:5-7

Benefits of Prayer Requests Online

Why should you submit prayer requests online when you can pray to God for your requests on your own? Many find that, for their most important concerns and requests for our Lord, sharing their prayers with others can bring comfort and hope. This is one way in which we can live out the “Communion of Saints” from the Creed we profess every Sunday. The Church encourages us to share our prayer requests with each other, both those still striving for holiness in this life and those who have entered into the joy of Heaven.

We will listen with compassion and lift up your prayers alongside our own.

Concerns taken to heart

Many of our petitioners are touched to know that someone is listening and taking their concerns to heart. Like Venerable Bruno Lanteri before us, Oblates of the Virgin Mary try to be wise and gentle shepherds who inspire confidence in God’s merciful love, reflecting the presence of Jesus by sharing in others’ joys and sorrows.

100+ prayer warriors behind you

When you submit a prayer request through our website, it is shared with more than 100 prayer warriors around the world. We lift up the petitions that we receive through the intercession of Ven. Bruno Lanteri. It’s a powerful spiritual force to be reckoned with!

“I know that my brother Oblates throughout the United States and around the world, as well as some trusted friends of the congregation, receive the prayer request reports which I share and faithfully lift up these petitions in their prayers.”

Br. Leland Thorpe, OMV

Answering Requests

Br. Leland Thorpe, OMV, is the seminarian who spearheads our prayer requests online. He is responsible for organizing requests, responding to them, and joining you in prayer.

“As I’m processing the new requests, I’m actively interceding for the petitioners through the intercession of Ven. Bruno. It’s a very consoling and prayerful experience for me! Every day, we Oblates pray the Prayer to Ven. Bruno Lanteri, and I make a point of including all the requests we’ve received – both in person and through the website – in that prayer.” — Br. Leland Thorpe, OMV

How we answer requests

Prayer requests submitted through our website are sent to a core group of Oblates, who review them initially and note requests that need a personal response, whether for crisis situations or other reasons at our discretion. We try to respond within 24 hours to urgent requests, such as an ongoing medical crisis. 

Every week, Br. Leland downloads the recently submitted prayer requests. All the prayer requests are tracked on a computer and Br. Leland starts by looking for updates on previously received requests and updating our records, as well as creating new records for new requests. Then he shares the updates and new requests with members of our community. Oblates of the Virgin Mary can then pray for these requests in our daily prayers, through the intercession of our founder Ven. Bruno Lanteri.

“It’s such a blessing to share in the joys and sorrows of families all around the world and to entrust them to God’s love through the intercession of Ven. Bruno Lanteri. Moreover, I’m firmly convinced that Ven. Bruno is a saint for our times, and his message is becoming more and more important for men and women to hear today. Should he be declared a saint, his message will be able to reach many more souls throughout the Church.”

Br. Leland Thorpe, OMV

Prayer Requests at Work

We always encourage you to update us on the status of your prayer requests. We care about your petitions, and we value the opportunity to be present in prayer with you through your sorrows and your joys. Since we pray through the intercession of Ven. Bruno Lanteri, we are also praying for miracles that can be attributed to his intercession and aid his cause for canonization.

To date, we’ve received more than 2,500 prayer requests online. The results we’ve heard from those who send us updates have been truly incredible. It only strengthens our faith in the future sainthood of Ven. Bruno Lanteri.

For example, Ven. Bruno Lanteri suffered from problems with his eyesight, and he’s proven to be an effective intercessor for people with vision problems. We’ve seen relationships healed and marriages reconciled. We’ve prayed for children in poor health who are now thriving. We’ve even seen people discover their faith and convert to Catholicism.

“Ven. Bruno said that miracles of conversion are greater works of grace than miracles of physical healing, and he seems to have a preference for interceding for souls in that way. In a number of cases, people who have been resistant to conversion have had their hearts softened and even asked to receive the sacraments, sometimes in their final hours.”

Br. Leland Thorpe, OMV

What are you waiting for? Send us your prayer requests online today. We’d be honored to lift up your prayers through the intercession of Ven. Bruno Lanteri and to share in your joys and sorrows. Let us pray!

    Please pray for me. Angelic beings have been possessing me and tormenting my soul now for nearly 30 years. I have tried everything humanly possible to get them to stop. How do I know it’s angelic beings? It would take too much to go into here, but that’s what they are and they are actually more alien than angelic. They are also wrongfully taking all of the money that legitimately earn, blocking me from being able to provide for myself or my family. They claim to be at war with me or more specifically, my soul which ranked high in the heavens before my birth on earth. I am also a black man and over the years have come to see these beings as rather fascist and mean spirited to the black race which is probably why we, whether in Africa, the Caribbean or America, have more problems with possessions than anyone. I know it sounds crazy, but I’m telling you the truth! Please pray for me. Pray that they leave me alone and stop trying to harvest my soul. Thank you.

    Please, please send powerful prayer support this way: Asking that two major neighboring plots of land that are literally unraveling our residential neighborhood with disturbing nuisance noises–some are truly endless, we are hearing industrial humming, tractor trailers coming and going, commercial AC and compressor units cycling eternally on and off–. Our kids can’t sleep, young working parents can’t sleep, these noises are very disturbing and our zoning board refuses to hear our complaints. We need almighty God to take up this fight: Asking that all of these parcels be transformed into gardens of delight for almighty God–truly open space areas that would be used for hiking, walking trails, overflowing with shrubbery, beautiful perninial flowers, and trees –all that would become a diamond treasure to our entire town and would enhance and not destroy our neighborhood. Help us Lord. Help.
