Fatima Khan, age 20, University of Peshawar

Peshawar, Pakistan - Fatima Khan, age 20, and her friends Quassim and Annan face the threat of violence every day. Their dreams are on hold. They never know if they will return home when they go out. They are living in uncertain times, when playing western music in their small band could get them killed. They say the music is their way of dealing with the stress of impending terrorism. Everything they do is risky. Yet Fatima remains optimistic as she shares, "Good pictures are developed in the dark so we remain hopeful that peace will come to our region." Until then they dream of life as they once knew it and hope for better days.

Lord, we pray for all students whose souls are under seige from terrorism or temptation. Give them the wisdom they need to survive life's trials and make good choices. We ask for your divine protection, deliverance, intervention so that they may live a blessed life according to your divine plan. We thank you for the blessing they are to us and ask you to keep them safe and in your care.

Father Michael Kamau Ithondeka, 41 Martyr for the Faith in Kenya

Kenya - Father Michael Kamau Ithondeka, 41, had just finished saying Mass and was sitting in his car near the Eldama Ravine in eastern Kenya when his car was attacked by rebels. Father Michael, vice-rector of St. Mathias Mulumba Senior Seminary in Tindinyo, was stoned and hacked to death. A man of peace, a man of God, had his life ended in this violent and hateful manner.

Unfortunately, there are just too many martyrs for the Faith in Kenya and other regions of the world where Christians are the minority. In Kenya, numerous families have had to seek shelter in their local churches following the destruction of their homes; hundreds of others have been killed. Those lucky enough to still have their homes are too afraid to step out of them and widespread corruption prevents food from getting to the people who desperately need it.

Lord, we pray for all people who suffer for their faith or who have become martyrs because of their belief in God. We ask for your divine assistance, intervention and deliverance for all your faithful. Send forth your Holy Spirit that all peoples and nations may reverence life and the many gifts you have given us. We pray for an end to the violence and persecution of your Churches and a renewal of faith, hope and love in the world.

Ross Taylor, 30-Years-Old

Knysna, South Africa - Ross Taylor has suffered from Neuroblastoma since 2000 and traveled the world seeking treatments, which would help him overcome the disease. Recently it was determined that there were no more treatments to try and the tumor growths in his body had taken over. He is in hospice care and has made the decision to purposefully die by by using his suffering to pray for others. His life on earth, however short, has been beautiful. Miraculously Ross overcame a great white shark attack in 1998. This pales in comparison to this mans miraculous attitude about life. Let us stand by Ross and all souls who need our prayers this day.

Lord, we ask you to bless all souls journeying home to you. In your Mercy keep them ever close to you now and for all eternity. Grant healing and comfort to them and their loved ones. Lord, help us remember that you are alway with us as our constant companion. Life in you is eternal and death is but a door to eternity with you.
