Can I ask for a little favor?

Hi, my friend!

Starting tonight until Sunday, I will be in my annual closed retreat at Makiling Conference Center in Laguna. It is my much-awaited opportunity to unplug and reconnect to God through prayer and meditation. 

Now, here’s the favor that I’d like to ask from you: could you pray for me?

I have special personal intentions for this retreat, and I know your prayers would be helping me a lot. Right now in my life I need more graces on the following aspects: vocational discernment, family, career and relationships, and personal growth and development.

I would like to know how I can pray for you as well. What are your prayer requests or intentions? You may send them to me through or by commenting on this post.

Would you like to know more how you can grow deeper in your faith? Are you also interested to attend a retreat? Just let me know. 🙂

Thank you for being part of my extended family, and I am so thrilled, honored, and humbled that we can pray for one another. 

Please do let me know if there’s anything else I can do to help and serve you. I am just an email away.

Thank you very much!

Your friend,

Will be praying for you and your intentions and would like to ask for your prayers as well for my intentions – in areas of professional, family and relationships. Thank you very much and God bless! 🙂
