Candidate I'm sponsoring


She’s encountered a LOT of resistance from her children and is very discouraged right now. She really wants to be Catholic. Please pray not just for her but also for all Candidates and Catechumens right now who are under pressure from their families to abandon their path.


joining you in prayer for all in RCIA!


Praying for this particular lady and all Candidates and Catechumens

Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among 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.


August Queen of the Heavens, heavenly sovereign of the Angels, Thou who from the beginning received from God the power and the mission to crush the head of Satan, we humbly beseech Thee to send Your holy Legions, so that under Thy command and through Thy power, they may pursue the demons and combat them everywhere, suppress their boldness, and drive them back into the abyss. Who is like God? O good and tender Mother, Thou will always be our love and hope! O Divine Mother, send Thy Holy Angels to defend me and to drive far away from me the cruel enemy. Holy Angels and Archangels, defend us, guard us. Amen.




Praying for her.


Pater noster, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur Nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nostra sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo. Amen

Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum. Benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Iesus. Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc, et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen

Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto. Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper, et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.



Father, Jesus, Holy Spirit please embrace and protect, give comfort, courage and deep faith to this woman and all who are in her situation. St Michael please defend her and them. Holy Spirit please touch the hearts and minds of those who oppose souls who seek and accept Your truths


St. Michael the Archangel, defender in battle, be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray and do thou oh prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, cast in to Hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen. :signofcross:


Praying for your candidate as well all other RCIA candidates preparing to join the Catholic church at Easter.


Praying very hard for her success and her family’s approval.


Loving God,

We lift up all RCIA participants, both catechumens and candidates, and ask for the continued love and guidance from your Holy Spirit as they continue their formation and spiritual development in order to join your Holy Mother Church. Please strengthen the candidate jazzbaby1 is sponsoring and help her to be strong, develop a strong prayer life, and to follow through with this most important step in her life regardless of what her family thinks. Lord Jesus, you called your disciples and they left family, work, and comforts behind to follow you. Please strengthen all RCIA participants to develop this deep love and appreciation for the righteousness of this step in their journey of faith, while also providing courage and wisdom to all their sponsors who support them on the journey. If the RCIA participants face discord and challenges from their family and friends we pray that your Holy Spirit will soften the hardened hearts and make them supportive of the RCIA participant’s choice. However, if your divine and perfect will is not to intervene in the families who are not supportive, please provide the faith, fortitude, and fear of the Lord to the RCIA participants so they will complete their formation and spiritual development and find their true home in your Holy Church with your community of faith.

We pray in the name of your beloved son Jesus, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever.
