My sister needs prayer


#1

My sister could use a lot of prayers today. She has been struggling with faith for a while and then last night my nephew, her only son, shot himself in the head and committed suicide. No one knows his reasons yet, or may ever know. He was only 27. On top of that, she had been divorced from his dad for a very long time and her son had lived with dad for several years in high school and then moved with him to Phoenix Arizona where they both worked for the past 9 years.

Strangely, I awoke out of a sound sleep about 4:30 this morning with the Fatima prayer on my lips, and for no apparent reason. I woke up later this morning to my wife giving me the news, as her brother, who is married to my sister(which is how I met my wife) had called and given her the news.

Just please pray for her, and his little sister who was supposed to begin college this week but has put that on hold for a semester to be with her mom. It’s deeply painful, confusing and heart-wrenching, to say the least, so just pray for God’s peace and hope to fill her and comfort her, and that the arms of the Lord would somehow bear her and them all up through this impossible time.

Thank you. I know the folks here at CAF are some of the greatest prayer warriors on the planet, so one of my first, or thirtieth random and wandering thoughts was to seek support from the Body of Christ here. We are all just broken and offering our tears and prayers for them.

All my best . . .

My heart aches for you and your family!
*
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.*

Amen.

Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among 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 death.

Amen.

Lord, I pray for Convert66’s deceased nephew and his mother. May you have mercy on his nephew’s soul, Lord, and console his mother at this painful, sorrowful time. May she place all her trust in you to get her through this difficult time, and may she be surrendered to your merciful love. Heal her broken heart and fill her with your healing, strengthening love so she can grow whole and well again. Amen.
