Please pray for Matthew and his family


#1

Loving God,

We lift up our intentions today for the friend of one of my coworkers. His name is Matthew and he just committed suicide. He leaves behind a family, wife and children, and a father and other family members as well as many loving friends. Lord, we pray for the repose of Matthew’s soul. We also ask for your comforting and consoling Holy Spirit to be with Matthew’s wife, children, and family during this time of enormous pain, disbelief, and great uncertainty. Please strengthen this family, let them feel the power of your unconditional love for them and for Matthew, and help them to grow in faith, hope, and courage through this very difficult and demanding time. Please also bless and comfort Matthew’s friends. Lord, your son Jesus is the judge, we are not the judge, and please help us to pray with genuine and heart felt intent for this situation and these people who are hurting so much right now.

We pray in the name of your beloved son Jesus, empowered by your Holy Spirit, who live and reign with you, one God for ever and ever.

Amen.

Dear Lord Jesus,

We pray for Matthew.
Lord, you know his soul, you made him, he is Yours.
Lord, in a moment of desperation blinded by despair he departed from us.
Please, Lord by the merit of Your cross and resurrection, humbly we ask for Your mercy.
Have mercy on his soul, and help his family and friends.
Heal them from this deep wound and sorrow.
Only You, the Healer, can restore them and make them whole again.

Amen.

Almighty God, our heavenly Father,
we understand that thy sixth commandment,
"Thou shalt do no murder,"
includes self murder.
But in thy divine mercy,
we beg thy forgiveness especially for Matthew,
who have been so confounded by the pressures of this life
that they felt there was no way they could continue.
Grant, we beseech thee,
that they be forgiven their terrible sin
and accepted into thy divine providence,
and that they may come to understand thy ways and thy nature.
We ask this in Jesus Christ’s name.

Amen.
