need prayers for my son


#1

Please pray for my son. He is troubled by learning diffculties and copes by drinking and smoking pot. Not sure if he goes to church. Left for college angry with his father who will not tolerate his bad behavior at home.

I know he is on a dangerous road right now. He needs understanding and guidance and will not accept that from us at this point. Please put the right people in his path that will lead him to a better life. May the blessed mother surround him with a mantle of her protection. May the archangels be at his side. may the holy spirit inspire his thoughts and desires. I know he is down right now…may he find a friend to lift him up.

May the lord show us the path to forgiving and understanding him. He must be suffering but so are we.

I am praying for your son.

May I suggest you turn to Saint Monica for assistance. She was in a similar situation - after praying for her son Augustine urgently for many years, she had the happiness of seeing him convert and become a bishop and one of the leading Fathers of the Church. She is the patron saint of people who have wayward children.


#3

Saint Monica, please pray for her son. Lead her son to become a better man.
Amen.


#4

Praying for your son.

Mother Mary, I commend this family to you. Please help these parents to forgive their son from the bottom of their hearts and help them to pray persistently for him, like St. Monica did for St. Augustine. May their son come to know and love Our Lord, and change for the better. May Our Lord grant him a personal encounter to transform his life. May he never give up praying and never stop seeking Our Lord. May your powerful maternal mediation lead him back to Our Lord and to a life of holiness. Amen.

Dear Lord Jesus,

We pray for this person right now, we pray you come into this boys life and surround him with your protective angels, let no harm come to him and bring him back to you. Bless this Mother Lord and shower her with your infinite grace's....

PRAYER TO ST. MICHAEL
St 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,
cast into hell satan and all the other evil spirits, who prowl
through the world seeking the ruin of souls, Amen.
