Please pray for a woman who came into church after mass yesterday

handing out flyers for the performance Shen Yun. She said she was a member of their faith group (Falun Gorg) and was wanting to bring it to the members of our parish. I spoke with her a while and feel she is in a very vulnerable place.

Please pray for “B” that she comes to know the Catholic faith and distances herself from her current situation.

Thank you! :slight_smile:

Dear Lord please guide B to truths of Our most Holy Faith and inspire within Her a deep unending love for You and Our Lady.

Hail Mary Full of Grace The Lord is with thee 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.

Praying for B.

Praying for B.

Prayers offered up.

I pray for lax16’s acquaintance B,
that the Holy Spirit speak to her
heart about what she is into at
the moment, that she see the Truth
in what lax16 was able to share w/
her and know that she is the living
Way to the Father and see Christ in
her, the hope of glory.

Our Father, who is in heaven,
Your Name be held holy,
Your kingdom come,
Your 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 against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
Amen.

Praying for B, so she can overcome her bad, current situation.

(fyi, for those who don’t know what Falun Gong is:

Falun Gong is a Chinese spiritual practice that combines meditation and qigong exercises with a moral philosophy centered on the tenets of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. The practice emphasizes morality and the cultivation of virtue…))

.

Not to insinuate that what is wrong with her is her belief in Falun Gong. She had much to say that led me to believe she is in need of prayer. Also, it was very unusual for a person to enter a church (of any denomination) to pass out flyers. If one is to read reviews about the performance she was promoting, it is evident there is a religious component to it, some say proselytyzing.

She was very sweet but almost in a daze.

Thanks for your prayers. :slight_smile:

wasn’t Falun Gong responsible for an act of terrorism in Japan or China on a subway several years back?

Prayers will be offered for this woman.

Oh, yes. I didn’t mean to insinuate that either. I assumed you meant her “current situation” to pray for was something else, that’s one reason why I posted the Falun Gong definition…so that people didn’t think that was the issue.

So kind of you to notice her fragility and worry about her.

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

Amen.

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 against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

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.

Praying…

O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You!

Jesus, I trust in You!

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in You!

Amen.

No, that was the pseudo-Buddhist terrorist group Aum Shinrikyo who attacked the Tokyo subway system with sarin gas back in 1995. Twenty years later, you still can’t find a public trash can in Tokyo. Thanks, terrorists. I loved carrying a used popsicle stick around for two hours last week.

Falun Gong is a growing cult (religion, if you prefer) in red China and frequent target of Chinese government harassment on a pretty large scale.

AMEN

No, that was Aum Shinrikyo – a different group but equally insidious.

others may increase and I may decrease …
That others may be chosen and I set aside …
That others may be praised and I unnoticed …
That others may be preferred to me in everything…
That others may become holier than I, provided that I may become as holy as I should…

**Prayer Against Depression
**………….By St Ignatius of Loyola
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.
