For someone close who's falling away


#1

Someone close who just seems to be drifting further from the faith. Please pray for me too that I can show God’s love and not push this person away.

I would also like to expand this to anyone else who has someone close that they know who seems to just be drifting away from the Church, away from God, perhaps even away from you because of your own faith. Also for all those we do not know who are experiencing doubt, or who have been so tepid that they don’t really care about matters of faith anymore.

Father, guide them all toward the Truth. Jesus, please show them why their heart is restless and in need of you. Holy Spirit, shine your light to cut through the darkness and lead them back to you.

Blessed Mother, hold our hand to not stumble and help guide them back to your Son. To the angels and saints, please pray that these souls may come back to God, for just as He wants us all to be one, so too do we wish for His will to be done.

Amen and Amen.

Padre nuestro, que estás en el cielo,
santificado sea tu nombre,
venga a nosotros tu reino,
hágase tu voluntad en la tierra como en el cielo,
danos hoy nuestro pan de cada día,
perdona nuestras ofensas,
como también nosotros perdonamos a los que nos ofenden,
no nos dejes caer en la tentación y líbranos del mal,
Amén.

Dios te salve María,
llena eres de gracia,
el Señor es contigo,
bendita tu eres entre todas las mujeres,
y bendito es el fruto de tu vientre Jesús,
Santa María madre de Dios,
ruega por nosotros los pecadores,
ahora y en la hora de nuestra muerte,
Amén.

Glora al Padre, al Hijo y al Espíritu Santo,
como era en un principio, ahora y siempre,
por los siglos de los siglos,
Amén.

Lord, I pray for all who are fallen-away from the faith. Help them to seek you again with all their hearts, and to find you. Thank you, Lord, for hearing my prayer. Amen.
