I don't want to push my religion on anyone. however, I would like you to know when I prayer for folks, some details for anyone who might be interested.
I'm catholic. There is a priest from my orignal home town, New Orleans, Father Xavier Seelos, who was died just after the Civil War. He has been beatificated by the Pope and we believe he may be made a saint soon.
Father Seelos has been important in my life, even before I got cancer. Often in my life have prayer to God and asked Father Seelos to assist me in my request. There are many, many people in the monthly newsletter who have testimonials of people with cancer having prayers answered thru the intercession of father Seelos.
Now i've never prayered for any such intercession in my case, I only point out others have. In my own case, my prayers thru father Seelos are more about a more personal feeling of peace and well being. But I meantion, in case others are interested.
the prayer I pray is
O My God, I truly believe You are present with me. I adore Your limitless perfections. I thank You for the graces and gifts You gave to Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos. If it is Your holy will, please let him be declared a saint of the Church so that others may know and imitate his holy life. Through his prayers please give me this favor ... (HERE MENTION YOUR SPECIAL INTENTIONS)

I don't post this to attempt to convet anyone, but rather just as information that might be of interest because this has been been of a personal comfort to me.
