a friend in need

My best friend just lost his grandmother and he is not much of a believer. Any prayers for her and for him at this time would be very appreciated.

All involved have my prayers.


“I plead with you! Never, ever give up on hope, never doubt, never tire, and never become discouraged. Be not afraid.”
“If He asks much of you, it is because He knows you can give much.”

  • St Pope John Paul II

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

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.

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.

Prayer for a Miracle

God of all creation, you who spoke a simple command and brought forth light from
the darkness, I ask you now to send forth your miracle-working power to heal sticknstring73’s friends. You cleansed the lepers, opened the eyes of the blind and by
speaking a simple command, you empowered the crippled to rise up and walk.
You sent forth your life-giving power to all those in need, including those you raised from
the dead. I ask you to send forth your healing power into sticknstring73’s friends’s body and give him the strength to fight his illness. I ask this through my Lord, Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.

Amen.

May your friend’s grandmother rest in peace and may the God of all comfort be with grieving family and friends.
Mary.

Praying for the repose of the soul of your friend’s grandmother. Praying for the intentions of your friend.

Bless you all and thank you. They are well needed.

Father of all mercies and God of consolation, You love us eternally and
transform the shadows of death into the dawn of life. Look upon our
grief; be our refuge and comfort so that our sorrow may turn into the
Light and Peace of Your Presence.

In dying, Your Son destroyed death; in rising he restored life. Grant
that at the end of our earthly pilgrimage we may be found in his
company with all our brothers and sisters. There, You shall wipe away
every tear. We ask this through Christ, our Lord.
Amen

Praying that the Lord may grant all necessary graces to your friend. Also praying for the repose of the soul of his grandmother.

O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace. Amen.

REMEMBER, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.

Praying for them.
