My brother deserves a second chance


#1

Hello,
Please pray for my borther Julian as he is currently suffering from cirrhosis of the liver. He has been an alcaholic for many years. And throughout the years he has neglected his entire family.

We love him and and want him to have a second chance to make things right between us all. I ask the Lord to grant him a stable life so that we may enjoy and make mends with him.

Lord have mercy!

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

Heavenly Father we ask Your blessings for Erazo’s brother Julian, in prayer for his repentance for the neglect of his family and relationships and his reconciliation with You and with the members of his family. Please elp him to make valuable use of the time he has yet to live, that he can depart his family with love and peace, and can have a renewed soul to come before You. I ask this in the name of Jesus who taught us the importance of love, and who sacrificed Himself that we may be saved.

Erazo, I’m sorry that you have yet another great sorrow in your life. May God comfort you.

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy Will be done, on earth, as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Amen.

Thank you so much!

I seen my bother yesturday. I know he is loosing hope. But when I read stories about God’s mercy…he was attentive. I know he is scared and probably feels God will not forgive him for what he has done.

This prompted me to read him a prayer that I have about healing the family tree. It explains that sometimes our suffering are not the fault of our own choice, but because there is root in our family tree. Alcoholism does run in the family. And I told him that this is what prompted him fall, so it is not all his fault. God loves him no matter what He will lend a hand if he reaches for Him.

I hope the Lord gants him a second chance. Like I told my brother…“If the Lord gives you a second chance tell him you have 7 brothers and sister who will praise Him. And it will be you who will leads us to heaven!”

Lord please hear our cries.

Prayer to Our Lady, Mother of Mercy

Blessed Virgin Mary, who can worthily repay you with praise and thanks for having rescued a fallen world by your generous consent! Receive our gratitude, and by your prayers obtain the pardon of our sins. Take our prayers into the sanctuary of heaven and enable them to make our peace with God.

Holy Mary, help the miserable, strengthen the discouraged, comfort the sorrowful, pray for your people, plead for the clergy, intercede for all women consecrated to God. May all who venerate you feel now your help and protection. Be ready to help us when we pray, and bring back to us the answers to our prayers. Make it your continual concern to pray for the people of God, for you were blessed by God and were made worthy to bear the Redeemer of the world, who lives and reigns forever. Amen.

Saint Augustine of Hippo

Thank you so much for your prayers. I am sadden to say that my brother is with our Lord. But I am sure he is in a better state in heaven then he was here.

He died on May 22, this means so much to me becuase he died on my patron saint’s day St. Rita. I asked him to be my angel and to help me through my marital problems.

Thank you again!
