Subject: I am trying to contact Father Degrandis for prayer.
Please pass this prayer request on to him if possible.

Father Degrandis, I have read several of your books. I really need prayer and a few miracles! My husband of 22 years walked out in 1996, and we were officially divorced in 1997. You can imagine my pain and that of our children and all involved. I have felt very convicted to keep praying for my husband. I pray for his baptism in the Catholic Church and for us to be remarried. I am also badly in need of a new job. I need a less stressful one that makes more money. My current position has caused me health problems because it is so stressful and my family really needs more money. I am praying for forgiveness miracles. I pray that I can forgive as Jesus does all those I need to forgive and that anyone I have wronged will forgive me. Mostly I pray for the Mercy and forgiveness of Jesus, my Savior. I don't know why I have contacted you here to help me pray other than I am desperate and also felt guided to do so. Thank you for praying on my behalf, especially at this time, the feast of Divine mercy. May God bless you! Sincerely, Kathie XXXX

Dear Kathie,
I am sorry, and I feel sadness for your pain, and for that of your husband and children.
How eagerly the angels pray for us, but how persistently satan works to break us apart; he never sleeps...
This same battle is ongoing in the Church, the age-old war of good versus evil...
People are set against people, institution against institution, nation against nation.

I went through terrible trauma when my wife of 44 years died unexpectedly in 1994, oh how I prayed and prayed and prayed. Yes, pray for a miracle, pray for many miracles, never ever give up hope...my miracles came, and so will yours; God always answers prayer.
Your Father knows your burdens, give them all to Him, tell Him your cross makes you very weary, even as Jesus was weary.

We will pray for mercy, for your family; that you may be reunited in Christ, our final hope.
Father DeGrandis will say a mass especially for you and your family. Lord, just heal Kathie and her family in mind and in body! Love and blessings from all of us,

Gene and Chu Koshenina

Dear Kathie,
Of course you should pray for your husband's spiritual conversion and return to his marriage. Marriage is a Sacrament establishing a covenant that was instituted by God himself that precedes in every way any human institution, even if it were good, which Masonry is not. It is sad but inevitable that your lives would change after Jim joined the Masons and now works with and for them rather than honoring his covenant with God. Essentially, Jim has substituted a poor agreement with man for/over a prior agreement with God Himself.

Jim has joined an organization which by its very nature is anathema to God, because an organization that forces one to pledge "blind obedience and absolute secrecy" is inherently evil. Jim's big heart is misplaced. God humbly gives each of us free will, and He desires that we protect it and use it in our decision-making process. Masonry is Luciferian in that it usurps what can be given by man to God alone.

Many people unwittingly join the Masons which, at lower levels, appears benign and beneficent. They are completely unaware of what occurs in the highest levels in the organization, which are steeped in witchcraft. One is only raised to the rank of a 32nd or 33rd degree Mason when "fully indoctrinated in the cult."

Indeed you are fighting evil and the evil one. But before prayer the cowardly evil one flees, he loses his power. His time is short now, and thus he has become even more aggressive. Fasting is efficacious to prayer, to enlightening, healing. Mary asks that we fast every Wednesday and Friday. God answers prayer immediately, but that is not necessarily immediate or even proximate in our time. And as you probably know, God always chooses "the very best time."

We will pass all this information to Fr. DeGrandis, S.S.J., and he will surely pray for you, as will we. Love, Father and Gene and Chu

Thank you so very much for the response to my plea for prayers! You are so kind to pray with me and for me. I took my vows seriously, was married for 22 years, and I can't believe that God does not want me to pray for my husband's spiritual conversion and eventual return to his marriage. However, I can't pretend to know the mind of God and I humbly submit to His will for Jim and I. I understand that Jesus may answer my prayer in a way that is not what I have in mind. So be it, I feel compelled, almost convicted, to pray! Yes, Jesus always has the best idea!

I am especially concerned about something you mentioned in your response to me. Satan has great power and has been granted more time. This is my exact concern for Jim. Our whole lives changes after he joined The Masons. He is firmly entrenched in that organization and is an officer at his lodge. Jesus cast out evil spirits all the time while he walked the earth and when He did people acted differently afterward. I realize Jesus will not "make" Jim do anything due to free will, but might Jim act differently if this evil is removed from his life? Can the Holy Spirit move this way in a person's life.... to bring them to make use of free will to choose God? Can you recommend a certain prayer or any advice about this concern? I am not charismatic. I pray in a very normal way, but from my heart. How do you feel about fasting? I really feel like I am fighting evil here.

Thank you again for your prayers, very nice response, and for passing on my prayer request to Father DeGrandis, whom I am sure is very busy. I will pray for all of you and for your ministry. God bless! In Jesus, Kathie XXXX

Dear Kathie,
Your faith is most precious to Jesus, and also to us. Yes, it is very easy for Jesus to work miracles, and I am glad that you are so open to miracles. But remember, Jesus sometimes answers our prayers in a totally different way than we expect, than we may even want. We must be open to His desire, we don't want to limit Him because He is an infinite loving being and He always eagerly wants us to accept His gifts, as these are the very best things in our lives given precisely when we need them. Jesus always has the best idea!

Jesus humbly gives people free will, and thus your husband Jim may do as he wishes in this life. Jim has a big heart. It is our prayer that He will see God's holy way, and that he will accept Jesus' desires for his life. Satan has been granted more time, and he has great power; only prayer will defeat him. Prayer will move your husband towards Our Lord's plan, but he too must want it.

Jesus is the life! So we pray this day and tomorrow and...that your husband will be open to the gifts of Our Lord, that he will abandon his poor way and follow the path of complete righteousness. We ask this in Jesus' mighty name through the intercession of Our Mother, Mary. Amen! And Amen! And Amen! Love, Father and Chu and Gene

P.S. Father DeGrandis, S.S.J. is currently in Brazil. We will apprise him of your prayer request, Kathie.

Dear Father DeGrandis, If you have time can you pray for my intention? I believe in miracles! Even though I can't personally be where you are speaking and doing healing services, I believe God can work miracles through our joint prayer. I am praying for my husband's return home. We have been divorced since 1997. If Jesus can raise people from the dead, He can bring a marriage back to life! Thank you so much for joining me in prayer and may God bless you and your ministry, Father Degrandis! In Jesus, Kathie Turk

Heavenly Father, I need a forgiveness miracle between my husband, Jim and myself. I am bowed low before you with no merit of my own. In the name of Jesus, I ask for us to be reunited and have the kind of marriage you would want us to have. I accept Your will for my life. I praise and thank you for the many blessings bestowed upon me. I believe you want me to be happy on earth and I willingly serve You in any way You ask. In Jesus name and by the intercession of the Blessed Mother Mary I make this prayer. Amen. Your little child, Kathie
