For my sister's return home- spiritually & literally

My sister is married to a Baptist minister. They have lived in New Jersey for the last 12 years. It appears their church is floundering - perhaps even failing. I struggle as I pray for this situation to resolve itself - it seems just wrong to actually pray a church folds but I so want her & her family to move back to Missouri.

Of course, I often pray she returns to the Church of her youth and her husband finds the truth of Catholocism.

Please include her family in your prayers. Thanks!



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. Amen.

I will pray for your sister and her family.

Almighty God, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, come to Kris’s help and deliver her sister and husband from this difficulty that besets them. I believe Lord, that all trials of life are under Your care and that all things work for the good of those who love You. Take away from them fear, anxiety and distress. Help the all in this family to face and endure difficulty with faith, courage and wisdom. Grant that this trial may bring them closer to You for You are their rock and refuge, comfort and hope, delight and joy. Through the prayers of the Most Holy Theotokos, St. Jospeh, bringin to you all the angles and saints, through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ, she trusts in Your love and compassion. Blessed is Your name, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen.
