  1. Well, it’s awfully long, but this is a big congregation and when people request, I put them up. The best way to read it is fast, just the names – God already knows all about it, so join your spirit to the Spirit’s and all will be well.

    Thank you, David. I just put that suggestion up top.

    Liked by 1 person

  2. Thank you Josh! I have just discovered The Daily Office thanks to Peter, my friend and parish priest. This is a true blessing for me throughout each day – and for so many others you can be sure.

    My long journey as a gay man has brought me to yet another moment of wonder. Thank you for the openness of your heart and this site. Blessings upon you and all who come to and support this important mission.



    • We’re glad to have you with us, Andrew. Thank Peter on our behalf.

      Be sure to look for a special prayer tonight at Evening Prayer. Happy Pride Weekend.



  3. My dear friend Lael is living through the final stages of pancreatic cancer.

    Glory be to you O Lord!

    O God of Love and Lord of Mercy, we pray that our sister Lael move ever closer to you as she prepares for her release from all the cares of this earthly existance. May all the joys of her life in this world be for her a reassurance of your continued presence throughout eternity. At that great moment of release and relief, we pray that you receive her spirit into your all-accepting heart of compassion, that she may rest in your love and peace for ever.

    Amen +++


  4. Dear Josh, thank you as always for this incredible ministry. Please add to your prayer list the ecumenical Order of Saint Luke, a dispersed monastic community of men and women, lay and clergy, who gather this week for their Annual Retreat. This year we meet at Montserrat Jesuit Retreat Center in Lake Dallas, TX. I will lift up this site and your ministry in our prayers, especially for the providence of the funding you need to upgrade the website.
    Bless you,
    Cynthia Astle, OSL


  5. Hello, Josh.

    Thanks so much for keeping this list up to date.

    I have two requests. First, my friend Stu’s wife Pam was just operated on for a brain tumor last week The doctors got a lot of it, but not all.
    Second, I need some kind of employment. I’m working one shift a week, but it’s not enough.
    Thanks so much.



    Pastor(s) in this city should take notice….because you are being given a warning from God. Either you start doing what God called you to do which is to help the community and stop pocketing God’s money or we are going to pray to God to remove you from office. The Intercessory Group. We are tired of people not being fed the word of God.
    If you don’t know what you are doing, then get down from there. God wants to carry out His message. If you are not doing His will then please, for God’s sake, remove yourself from office and let the Real Man of God do the Lord’s work. This move of God is Real…
    Satan is deceiving so many people and we need anointed men of God. Please, I beg you do not hold back God’s people. If you do not know what you are doing, get help from a pastor that you know who is in God’s will. Put your pride and your self-righteous spirit aside and get delivered; lets go on and do this work for God. You know who you are. Our Intercessory Group will continue praying for you pastors who are in line with the word of God. “Right On!” But, for you pastors that are ripping God off and His people, “WOE UNTO YOU!”


    MATTHEW 23:13-15 & 23:25, 27 & 29 LUKE 11:44 LUKE 6:24-26 LUKE 11:42-43, LUKE 11:46-47 & 52 REVELATION 8:13 & REVELATION 12:12

    MATTHEW 23:13 But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrite! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.
    14 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. Therefore you will receive greater condemnation.
    15 “Wow to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrite! For you travel land and sea to win one proselyte, and when he is won, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves.
    23 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cumin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law; justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone.
    25 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you cleanse to outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of extortion and self-indulgence.
    27 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.
    29 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous,
    LUKE 11:44 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like graves which are not seen, and the men who walk over them are not aware of them.”
    LUKE 6:24 “But woe to you who are rich, For you have received your consolation.
    Luke 6:25 Woe to you who are full, For you shall hunger. Woe to you who laugh now, for you shall mourn and weep.
    26 Woe to you when all men speak well of you, for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
    LUKE 42: “But woe to you Pharisees! For you tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass by justice and the love of God. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone.
    43 “Woe to you Pharisee! For you love the best seats in the synagogues and greetings in the marketplaces.
    46 And He said, “ Woe to you also, lawyers! For you load men with burdens hard to bear, and you yourselves do not touch the burdens with one of your fingers.
    47 “Woe to you! For you build the tombs of the prophets, and your fathers killed them.
    52 “Woe to you lawyers! For you have taken away the key of knowledge. You did not enter in yourselves, and those who were entering in you hindered.”
    REVELATION 8:13 And I looked, and I heard and angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, “Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!”
    12:12 “Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.”


    Note: This word from the Lord was given to me in 2006. I was on a fast for 40 days and afterward this is what He told me to write. He told me to send it to everyone. I don’t know which Pastor this word is for I’m only doing what the Lord told me to do. God Bless You All. In Jesus Name.


    • Irene, If you got this message five years ago, you’ve already broadcast it by now, so enough already. You don’t need to be taking up our international space, or our congregation’s time, for your local message. All you’re doing is taking advantage of our comments section.

      The Vicar


  7. Thank and bless you for this list, website/ministry, Josh (and team and benefactors). Please include for healing: Miriam, Nain T, Sue V., Mark. Please include in For Those Looking for Work: Naeem, Mark J.


  8. Please add the Community of St. Mary, Southern provence, Community of St. Mary, northern provence, and Co0mmunity of St. Mary, Western provence


  9. I have a prayer request corresponding to something being disseminated in church bulletins around the state of Indiana tomorrow, 2/26/2012.

    My prayer is there will families that see the bulletin from Advance Indiana and look past its political message. That it will end up helping some families that have kids struggling with their identify, sexual orientation and that they will learn about the Indiana Youth Group (IYG) and the resources it provides for LGBT and questioning kids.


    • Mary-Elise,

      Subdeacon Andrew and I discussed this; your request is very appropriate. We support the IYG and I’ve commented in their favor on several Indiana newspaper websites.

      Since we only found out about this anti-Gay bulletin insert the day before, we reworded your request to cover this and future efforts to defend oppression in God’s name. I haven’t checked our list today but I bet it’s there or soon will be. Thank you.



  10. Hi Josh,
    I have a few prayer requests:

    For the dearly departed

    For Healing of Body, Mind & Soul
    Jon, diabetes, congestive heart failure
    Gail, Jesse, Sherri and her family – hurt by churches or burned out by Christianity

    For Sobriety

    For Those Looking for Work
    Mary, Denise

    For the Homeless

    Financial Needs

    For Those in Discernment

    For Our Parishes & Ministries
    St. John’s Odessa, TX

    For All Deacons
    Ingrid, Northwest Texas


    • Copied and sent to Subdeacon Andrew, Keeper of the Prayer List.

      (It’s better for people to e-mail these requests rather than leave them as comments, because we’re slower to pick up on the comments. But eventually your requests get where they’re supposed to go, on the list.)



  11. Josh, Please remove my mom “Libby” from the list for sobriety and place her on the list for the departed. She died peacefully last Sunday with her three daughters at her bedside. Thank you. Tracey


  12. Can you give directions about where and to whom we should email prayer requests? I emailed one, but I’m not sure I sent it to the right place. Thanks.


  13. Good morning kfeldpausch,

    Prayer List requests can be made here at the Comments RSS at the bottom of the Prayer List or emailed directly to me, Subdeacon Andrew , Keeper of the Prayer List:

    I look forward to hearing from you.




    • This omission is probably my fault. I did receive in the last few weeks a prayer request that I failed to pass on immediately. Then when I looked for it, it was gone. Somehow my e-mail program magically changed itself to get rid of e-mails more than X days old. I apologize, kfeldpausch and Andrew. The number of e-mails here can get heavy at times, which the subdeacons try to help me with.

      We take prayer requests seriously, and we pray them ourselves, Andrew doesn’t just keep a list. But he can’t prevent a Vicar Breakdown.



  14. Please put my husband’s friend Ralph on the list for the sick he has some blood disorder and it hasn’t been diagnosed. Also could you put Holy Spirit Episcopal Church on the list as that is where I will be going once we move. I will continue to follow you out there. I am so glad that we finally met. God Bless you Josh and all the people associated with this site. Tracey


  15. Josh,
    Thanks be to God for your ministry to this community. Please pray for the people of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Santa Maria, California. Finding your site has been wonderful. I will visit often. I will pray for you and all the Subdeacons.


  16. Please add my name to the list for discernment and that my direction for employment and location(as well as timing) become clear. Please also pray for financial wisdom and freedom.


  17. Pingback: Morning Prayer 8.9.12: [Herman of Alaska, Missionary to the Aleut, 1837] « The Daily Office West

  18. Hi everyone, I have a few new requests: for me, AJ, (I’m a woman BTW) – for financial blessings and the opportunity to move closer to my hometown, Nan – financial blessings and recovery from severe allergies & a tailbone fracture, Jon – healing from diabetes, CHF and toxic church experiences, Gina – healing from dementia and protection from those who aren’t looking after her interests


    • Updates:
      AJ – financial blessings and for everything to fall into place that needs to
      Nan – financial blessings
      Jon – healing from toxic church experiences, health issues and hurts caused by certain family members
      Gina – healing from dementia and for certain care-related issues to be resolved

  20. Josh, thank you for this loving service. Please add for healing: my brother Macauley, who serves the Lord as a chaplain and who suffers severe pain; my father Nate who is living with with many ailments; my wife Sara who has chronic pain and disability; for the continued health of my newborn niece Amelia and finally for the healthy birth of twins carried by my niece Angie for her brother Jeff and his wife Kelly. I apologize for this long list I bring as a newcomer, but I love them all. Blessings to you and everyone.


    • Sam, we welcome your list. Blessings on them all: Macauley, Nate, Sara, Amelia, Angie, Jeff, Kelly and the twins.

      You too.

      Subdeacon Andrew, Keeper of the Prayer List, will add your family as soon as he can. His typing fingers say prayers.



  21. Josh – thank you for your ministry, which has fed me daily for several years. Please add prayers for me and my discernment committee as we discern my call to chaplaincy and to ordained ministry. Blessings! Cameron


  22. I appreciate the prayers in morning prayer for 12/15 for the victims in Newtown, Conn. Please pray for comfort for those experiencing the indescribable loss of a child in such a horrific manner, and for our nation to find a way to address the gun violence that has caused so many tragedies.


  23. A quick correction for one of the requests: “Charlie, mass on his lung (6)” is the same person as “Charlie, who passed away on 12-20-12 (3)”. Please keep members of the Waldie and Demers families who mourn his death in your prayers, too. Learning he had cancer and then his death all happened so suddenly…:(


    • Added Christine today, AJ.

      NOTE TO ALL: Starting Easter Monday, we will incorporate sections of this Prayer List into the services themselves. We’ll continue to maintain the entire list as a separate page.

      Let no one neglect the ministry of intercession.


    • alle bor ikke i sentrum-omegn. sett ut i fra bydeler, sÃ¥ er ikke sentrum spesielt tett befolka i det hele tatt. dessuten har ikke vegprising noe Ã¥ gjøre med at regjeringa i dette tilfellet har shafta kollektiverne. ikke sÃ¥nn som jeg ser det, tror ikke veiprising vil gjøre folk mer glad i bussen, bare mindre glad i avgifter.


  24. I pray for Newton and Charlie, who passed into eternal life this past weekend, and for their wives, my friends Sally and Julia Rae. May God give them peace and comfort.


  25. please pray for SS who I am caring for ,suffered stroke prayer is for healing of right side arm and leg so that she can walk again. Pray that she also has bitterness removed from her heart and that her son be completely delivered fron addiction in Jesus Name Amen


  26. Please remove Katrina’ s mother in law from the prayer list. She went to Heaven on Sunday, June 2. She was 94 and lived a wonderful, holy life. She lives on on her 12 children and many grandchildren, as well as in those of us who were honored to call her Mama by virtue of having married into the family.


  27. Please pray for our marriage. Pray that we never separate or divorce. Pray that we speak kind words to each other. Pray that this does not affect our son.

    God Bless,


  28. Please pray for Mandy who is suffering from depression and broken heartedness from the loss of her mother and a broken relationship which has her contemplating suicide……


  29. Please pray for my cousin Jennifer, who is dealing with many serious health problems, and at the same time contemplating whether she should move back to her (our) hometown of Detroit, so that she can more easily provide assistance to her aging father suffering from dementia.


  30. Please pray for my mother and father. I am struggling to help them recover financially from being on the brink of losing their home to foreclosure and financial disaster. There is a lot of ground to cover in terms getting back on the right track. I know that God has answered my prayers in getting us this far and that he will continue to guide, lead and provide for us. My parents, and especially my father, just need encouragement and support to get through this difficult time. Thank you. God’s peace to each of you and yours.


  31. Thank you all for your prayers for my husband, Frank, who was diagnosed with prostate cancer. He had surgery and thanks be to God, the cancer did not spread beyond the prostate. He has a short recovery period, and then will be fully engaged in the world again. I know he’s looking forward to his first walk in the harbor next week. Our prayers were answered, God is great.


      • Happy News, Josh. Today Frank did take his first walk at the harbor. I went with him (along with our pooch) to be sure he didn’t overdo it; he tends to go all out, so I thought a moderator would be a good thing. He did well and is looking forward to resuming his usual schedule. We are so blessed to live in a lovely little seaside town with a wonderful marina just a mile or two down the road. Great for walking, breathing the clean ocean air, people watching, observing all the ocean sports, and marveling at God’s goodness to humankind.


  32. Pray for my daughter that she have a productive school year 2013-2014 at her new school. please pray for wisdom and knowledge for her.


  33. Jo Johnson – Please pray for my husband Dick who is having colon surgery
    Fri. for a cancerous tumor. You offered prayers for him in March for a lung cancer that was treated with infusions and he’s doing beautifully with that. He’s 85 yr. and has COPD also. Thanks to God for your being here for us.


    • The good news, Jo, is we started prayers for Dick almost at once, on Twitter and Facebook. Friday the day of the surgery we’ll have a special request at the top of our regular page.

      God invented the internet for just such things.



  34. If you are so moved, please add a man named Arduz to the list of thanksgivings. He appeared practically out of nowhere, and was God’s own comfort and love to a mom who lost her little boy to cancer this weekend. May God bless him richly!


  35. How can I be placed on the prayer list. I ask for prayers for the chronic pain I feel daily, the acute back pain I now have and perhaps the pending surgery but of all that my heavy heart be lifted from the insults and abuse I have experienced and that I find forgiveness for myself and for those whose lives have inflicted abuse on me and on those I love.


  36. I thank you for all of God’s Work that you do and make available for everyone to see. Please add my wife, Sue (unknown illness that has kept her down for two years) and my son Kevin (who faces going to jail if he cannot make a large fine).

    May The Lord be with them. And comfort them through tough trials.

    Blessings of The Lord,

    In Jesus name I pray,

  48. Please pray for my daughter, Jennifer Pakalski. After Surgery for Uterine Cancer last winter and three rounds of Chemo earlier this year, we learned yesterday that the Cancer is back. (We were warned this was likely to happen, but it is still a shock). This time the Cancer is in her remaining lymph nodes. Her surgeon is on vacation this week, but the Physician’s Asst. says they’ve caught it early and surgery may not be necessary. We’re assuming this means more Chemo–which is effective for her, but is hard on her. Jennifer has a son in college and a daughter in High School. (our grandkids) Her husband has just returned to work as a High School teacher in inner-city Milwaukee. As a result, much of her care and chauffering to appointments will fall on her mom, (my wife). I’m a semi-retired United Methodist clergyman serving a small church half time.


  49. Please pray for my mother Mary Hartrich who is 92 and in constant pain from crippling arthritis. Please pray alsp for Cathy Jackson who has terminal cancer, for Kelly Thacker who has had a bad stroke, for Jeff Thacker who is recovering from xurgery, and for Liz Thacker who has degeneratve spinal disease, fibromyalgia and Sjogrens Syndrome. Thank you. I use your site every day for prayer.


  50. Josh,
    Thank you for adding my friend, Walter Anderson, to the prayer list. Yesterday morning, Walter passed from this life to the next, so please move his name to the list of the departed.
    Thanks again,

  52. Rethinking this post — probably too much information. Please pray for Katherine G., breast cancer with complications. Please edit the original, Josh. Thanks for all you do.

  58. Hi Josh,
    Thank you for this ministry, and ALL the pieces of the Daily Office! I’d like to add my friend Regina to the prayer list – late stage cancer of the esophagus.


  59. Please pray for all the (non-human) animals who suffer and are murdered. They are God’s children, too, and are innocent of sin, as Christ was. Pray for animals tortured on factory farms, in laboratories, circuses, trapped and skinned for their fur, pets abused and neglected, baby boy chicks thrown live into grinders, baby calves taken from their mothers on dairy farms to be killed for veal, chickens debeaked & raised in tiny boxes. May God soften our hearts. May we have the courage to stop being part of these sins.

    Please pass on prayer request for Fort McMurray. Parts of the city are now on fire, and quite a number of neighbourhoods are now under evacuation orders, including the one where St. Thomas’ building is located. I have been in touch with two of our priests there, and they are both now in areas to be evacuated.



  63. Can you possibly add Joseph Short and Patrick Dayton for the healing of body, mind, and soul to the prayer list please? Thanks for the wonderful work you do.


  64. Prayers for safety and release for Rev. Andrew Brunson, 20 year Christian missionary resident in Turkey, detained with his wife October 7, wife Norine released October 19 (Thanks be to God!). No access to his attorney or knowledge of accusations until unannounced court date December 9th. The pastor is now incarcerated at Izmir’s Sakran 3 Nolu T Tipi Prison on charges of “terrorism”. Seen as part of general crackdown on thousands. No announced duration of sentence, and no visitors of any kind.


  65. I would ask for prayers for my mother Katherine who is living with early alzheimers and myself Robert who is living with the early stages of dementia


  66. I would like to add the following names to the prayer list: Eva, COPD for healing of body mind and soul; and Kimberly, looking for work.


  67. Please add Arthur Wilbur to the prayer list. He is an advanced Parkinson patient and is very dependent on his wife,Linda [my sister]. She has to do all the driving, lifting and all the daily routine.
    She is a care giver like I have never seen before. Please pray for Linda as the care giver.
    Thanks for sharing this ministry,

  69. Josh, I did a donation about ten days ago via PayPal that has not yet showed up on your lists. $150. Not so interested about being listed as making sure you got it. Fr. BOb

  70. Please add to prayer list:
    Samantha, enduring painful complications following a liver transplant
    Matt, renewing a commitment to L’Arche


  71. Please continue prayers for Rev. Andrew Brunson who is wrongly imprisoned in Turkey since last October. (I saw his name offered some time in the last week in the Daily Office, but don’t see it on the Master List here. Regardless, the update requires renewed prayer.) His family was encouraged by reports by CBN (Christian Broadcasting Network) that President Trump asked about Rev. Brunson three times during his recent White House meeting with Turkish President Ergodan. Hopes were crushed within a week when pro-Ergodan media reported new accusations against Rev. Brunson of being a CIA agent. Missionaries familiar with the area say it’s a commonly used generic charge. Prayers for his safety and release, and peace that surpasses all understanding for he and his family.
    Thank you for your kind ministry.


  72. I just saw Rev. Brunson’s name on today’s Evening Prayer. Apologies for any inconvenience I may have caused. Please treat the last note as an update only. Thank you, thank you for keeping him on the prayer list. Family and friends are very grateful.

  73. I randomly browse blogs on the internet, and I discover your article to be very informational. I’ve already bookmark it on my browser, in order that I can view your blog post again later. Additionally, I am wondering whether your blog is open for link change, as I actually wish to alternate hyperlinks with you. I do not usually do that, but I hope that we are able to have a mutual hyperlink exchange. Let me know and have a great day!


  74. Dear Josh,
    Please pray for all of us in Florida as we await the arrival of Irma. Pray for God’s protection of we, His people. Give us courage, strength, and a total awareness of His love for us always and forever. Grant us peace as we await our unknown future. Calm our fears and give us wisdom. May we all be a testament to your goodness and mercies today, tomorrow, and always. Have mercy on us. Amen


    • Thank you, Ann; as I write this we’ve just finished our first webcast of the day, full of prayers for everyone in the path – people in the islands, South Florida and on up the coasts – including the most vulnerable, children, seniors, people with disabilities who are easily forgotten. Supplies are running low even in Central Florida and north to J’ville and the Panhandle. One thing about us, we’re a strong group at prayer and we mobilize in emergencies. Posts on social media, radio announcements, everything we can think of. The Lord knows what’s going on, watches over those in danger and listens to the cries of the saints. Help and comfort are on the way!

      Now stay in touch, too, and blessings on all your house.


  75. Please add Martin to the prayer list for those battling addiction, and thank you for adding Perry.
    Please add Tom to the list of those for whom we are praying for healing from cancer, and thank you for your continuing prayers for my friend, Ann Brewster, who is miraculously continuing to live well in spite of her body’s struggle with terminal cancer.
    Also, Lucy and George are in work situations that work well for now, but they will be needing transfers or new positions in the coming months in order to make a living for their families, so thank you for your continued prayers for them.
    Finally, please add my daughter, Lucy Brabham, to our prayers for those who pregnant, and for God’s beloved child preparing to be born to some wonderful new parents, Lucy and Rob, sometime in late July or early August. Lucy is having strong symptoms of nausea and vomiting with pregnancy
