My Dad

Hi, I know this isn’t as serious as other problems on here, but my dad discourages me and my 5 younger siblings from saying the Rosary or reverencing Mary in any way. He was raised Catholic. Please pray for us!

Praying hard.

Prayers for the Holy Spirit to soften Dad’s heart towards Mary.

Mary.

Lord, please grant many graces to this father to cultivate genuinely in his heart wisdom, fortitude, courage, faith, hope, magnanimity, humility, and fear of the Lord. Send angels to guide and minister to him always. Lead all these siblings toward your Sacred Heart through every suffering and joy in life in union with your holy Passion. Lead this whole family to the eternal banquet of joy. Have mercy, Lord. Our Lady, angels, and saints, pray with us. Amen.

Ave Maria, gratia plena,
Dominus tecum,
benedicta tu in mulieribus,
et benedictus fructus ventris tui Iesus.

Sancta Maria mater Dei,
ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc, et in hora mortis nostrae.

Amen

Praying for your father:

+++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 agaisnt us. And, lead us not into temptation, but deliever us from evil. Amen. +++

+++Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou amongst 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. +++

+++Glory Be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be world without end. Amen. +++

Holy Michael the Archangel defend us in the day of battle.
Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host,
by the Power of God,
thrust down to hell, satan and all the wicked spirits,
who wander through the world for the ruin of souls.
Amen.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession and was left forsaken. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you I come, before you I stand, a sorrowful sinner. Despise not my words, O Mother of the Word, but in your mercy, hear and answer me.
Amen

Praying for you and your intentions.

Ave Maria, gratia plena,
Dominus tecum,
benedicta tu in mulieribus,
et benedictus fructus ventris tui Iesus.

Sancta Maria mater Dei,
ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc, et in hora mortis nostrae.
