need prayers for my son


#1

Please pray for my son. He has had so much difficulty in his life with problems in school, problems with drugs, alcohol, the law, his relationships. He is away at college and is now telling me he lacks the motivation to get out of bed. I am trying to get him the help he needs but realize this is another waste of money as we are trying to educate him. God help me to be forgiving and steer me in the right direction I may help him. I know he is down and I do not want to make his burden any harder. I am hopeful that this "break down" will lead to his "build up." I am sorrowful, angry, hopeful, confused, If he agrees, his doctor wants to try him on some new medicine. He is a difficult person to help. Give me patience and inspire me with the right words to soothe this pain.


#2

Praying for your son, and that he discerns God's will in his life.


#3

I praynthat God gives you strength, patience, perseverance and fortitude. I likewise pray that your son will have a change of heart and be more responsive and appreciative of the helo you are extending to him. Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, AMEN.

Memorare (Prayer to Our Lady)
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen
