Default Prayer for a thief

When we got home today we found a young burglar in our house. We chased him down the street and my son gave him a black eye, but he got away. He pried a window open and climbed in, and went through all my drawers. Luckily I don't own much worth stealing!
Gave a description to the police.
I pray that this young man (about 17 or 18) will realize stealing is wrong, and find a better outlet for his energies, and find some good role models. I pray for Mary's mercy in his life.

Our dear Jesus, thank You for the blessings that this young man has already received, the prayer of others, the fruitlessness of his attempt, and the scare that he received.
Lord, let the discomfort and fear of his situation jolt him sufficiently into re-thinking his life, as the grace of the prayer that You place in Viki's heart and ours, brings him to conversion shake him.
Thank You, Lord

Lord have mercy! i pray for this poor soul that he would resist the temptation to steal. It is a evil mania, Lord have mercy! Lord God give him the power to resist the urge! Merciful Jesus, I trust in you!

Eternal Father, for the sake of His sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world. Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.

Amen.





Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Amen.

God, please guide this young man's footsteps in the right direction. Let him see that he is only hurting himself and others. In Jesus' name, we pray!
