My Friend Needs Your Prayers: spiritual low


#1

Please pray for one of my best friends. He is Christian, but his faith is taking a beating. This has been precipitated by family issues and personal issues, and his current lack of good fortune in finding a group of friends at his college who are Christian or finding a worthwhile extra-curricular activity. He is lonely, and he feels as if his life has no purpose right now. Though none of this may sound all that serious, I know from speaking with him that he is in a very, very dark place, and I’m worried for him. I don’t think I should elaborate right now. Additionally, please pray that he would be converted to the most holy Catholic and Apostolic Faith.

[LEFT] O Christ Jesus,
when all is darkness
and we feel our weakness and helplessness,
give us the sense of Your presence,
Your love, and Your strength.
Help us to have perfect trust
in Your protecting love
and strengthening power,
so that nothing may frighten or worry us,
for, living close to You,
we shall see Your hand,
Your purpose, Your will through all things. [/LEFT]

                                                               - St. Ignatius of Loyola

Thank you for being a good friend during this dark time.:thumbsup:

For CollegeKid’s friend to see the Light of Christ to lead him out of this dark place.

My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You. I beg pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love You, especially CollegeKid’s friend.
Most Holy Trinity, Father Son and Holy Ghost, I adore you and offer you the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference with which he is offfended and, by the infinite merit of his Most Sacred Heart and of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of you the conversion of poor sinners, especially CollegeKid’s friend. Amen.

:knight2: Dear Father, Lord of the Universe, please give this young man the strength to trust You. Help him to pick up his “shield of Faith” and to be like the soldier that St. Paul encourages us to be, “Therefore, put on the armor of God, that you may be able to resist on the evil day and, having done everything, to hold your ground.”

Let these prayers and those of St. Bede be ever before you as a sweet smelling savor.
