Appendix P: Praying It Pages by Topic

On each page, you will find a list of saints with a special connection to the topic at hand. They are great sources of inspiration and to turn to in prayer (Isn’t it wonderful that we can ask them to pray for us as we would a friend?) There are also numerous scripture passages that can help us to pray and think through things that we are working on, or inspire us to work through problems. Music is a wonderful form of prayer and there are many suggestions here to pray on your own or sing as a family (most include links to recordings on YouTube).  You will also find a number of suggestions for related prayers and devotions.
