Dear God,

As you know, my long-time good friend Anne Ryan
has, for many years, had her "God Box".

When one of her seven children,
or their spouses or their many children,
or one of her great multitude of friends,
has an illness, or an upcoming job interview, or some other challenge or special prayer intention, Anne will jot a request to You
and put it in the Box.

Anne, who is "not the last to take up the new,"
no longer uses a physical box, as she once did, but now, instead, she records the requests
and her own intentions electronically
on her computer.

Please, dear God, favor all of Anne's requests,
and favor too, those requests which I put
on my own "God Box" list of prayer intentions here below.

Anne and I know that You may not answer every prayer, or at least not in just the way we wish for. But you are the Father Who knows
what is best for us in the long run much better
than we know ourselves, so we will gratefully accept your decisions.

All this I pray to You, dear God of Gifts,
and Graces, and answered prayers.
