Many of my friends, and aquaintences and some family are are far off from the true Faith, some protestant, some non-practicing, others lukewarm and the like. I love them and am pained at the thought of losing them eternity. I shudder at the thought of them perishing in agony forever.
On top of this, one of these that I have mentioned is a beloved ex-girlfriend who I still hope God will rescue from the worldliness she has fallen into. I know it's a stretch but I pray especially for her. We were together for six years, engaged, but the relationship was not chaste even though we often attended Mass together. I miss her deeply but she wants nothing to do with me. I pray first and foremost for her full conversion, and secondly that if it pleases the Lord, that she return to me full of faith and love of the Lord. I also pray in the mean time to see her again soon, and that she be willing to be a part of my life again. My heart is still rent whenever I think of her both disdaining me and ignoring her Christian duties. If it is not the Lord's Will, I ask that He help me to move on. But because of the love I have for her soul, I will never cease to pray for her conversion. Please, brothers and sisters, these intentions are SO important to me. Please pray for them. Your feedback would be appreciated.
