It seems like I have more prayer requests. Thank you all for all the prayers you’ve already put in for me
First, I ask for prayers for a girl I was friends with about 2 years ago. When we had an unfortunately abrupt end to our friendship, she began getting in with a bad crowd. Now, I recently found out that she broke up with her boyfriend after a pretty icky relationship. Pressured and voluntary pre-marital intercourse and drug abuse all while dealing with depression, anxiety, practically mothering her younger siblings, and very few good friends. I am really concerned about her but I don’t know if I should reach out since it’s been about 2 years. Anyway, I’ve been praying to St. Dymphna for her and I remembered that her Confirmation saint is St. Gemma Galgani so any prayers would be appreciated.
Second, I ask for prayers with my temper. I’m so quick to judge and get annoyed/angry and it bothers me. I try to be calm but I just get so uptight and bothered and it’s not good.
Third, I ask for continued prayers regarding my extended family in coming back to the Catholic Faith.
Fourth, I ask for prayers for the health of several members in my family. My mom has hearing and health issues, my uncle has Parkinson’s, and there are several aunts in my family who struggle with health problems.
Finally, I ask for prayers that my impure/sacrilegious intrusive thoughts will stop. Whenever I get them, I get upset and ask God to take them away but they still plague me because I’m trying not to think about them. I know it’s because of bad decisions I’d made in the past but I’m truly trying to move past those and live a more Faith-focused life. I firmly believe it is true that the Devil won’t bother you until you’re trying to be holy. I’ve seen it
