Please pray for me and my best friend.

My best friend has been very depressed lately. She self-harms and contemplates suicide. I am anorexic and falling into a relapse. In addition, I’m very anxious and scared that I will die in a state of mortal sin somehow. I was diagnosed with OCD, and hell seems to be a massive trigger for me.

Please pray for both of us. Thank you so much for keeping us in your thoughts.

Pax Christi.

:heart:

Thank you so, so much. It means so much to both of us. I’m so grateful. I’m sorry that you also know what it’s like to experience these things.

I have to say, when I read, “send Your Holy Spirit upon them both and heal them”, my jaw dropped and I was blown away. I just came upstairs from an amazing experience.

I immediately typed this up into a WordPad document to get it all down accurately. I will copy and paste it here :

I was having bodily complications from starving myself. My stomach ached, my left side hurt, my chest hurt, I had to breathe in really sudden gasps, and my left leg felt like it was plunged into a bucket of ice water. I went downstairs to my bedroom to pray. I begged God for help, because I knew I couldn’t fight anorexia alone; I’d die. I asked him for help to get me through. In addition to the pain, I was cold and tired, hunched over in the fetal position on my bed, wrapped in a blanket. All of a sudden, I felt this massive sense of peace, and I rolled over farther onto my right side and tried to continue my prayer, but I, seemingly involuntarily, closed my eyes. I was wide awake, but I just suddenly closed my eyes. And I saw God. I know for an absolute fact it wasn’t my imagination because there is absolutely no way I could imagine something that vibrant, that beautiful, that pure. The Holy Spirit came to me; all I could focus on was this dove, glowing and white, with what appeared to be a golden glow on His back and the back of His wings. He would fly in circles, come closer to me, and then fly in circles again. This went on a few more times. Sometimes, the glow on His back and wings intensified, and I saw what almost looked like the sun behind Him. Light started to stream around His head and wings. My pain had completely subsided and I was no longer depressed, cold, or anxious. I cried and couldn’t stop saying "Oh, my Lord…so beautiful…thank You…"After a while, He raised His wings skyward and flew up, and as soon as I opened my eyes, out of nowhere, I burst out laughing. I couldn’t stop laughing. When I got up, I was trembling and had to clutch my dresser on my way out to stay upright.

Thank you so VERY much for your heartfelt prayers. God bless you. I’m sure He will do amazing things for my best friend, too. Thank you SO much. <3

Lord please fill both girls with overwhelming love for You and practical generous love for others. Help them to welcome the life you have given them with wholesome humanity and loving spirituality. Help them to place their trust in Your merciful love.

Thank you both so much. <3

Please know that everything is possible with God. When you pray, always pray ‘Lord let your will be done and not mine’ and surrender your whole life, and every moment of your life to HIM… you will never have a better peace than that. If you do have it in your area, do watch GOD TV… it has given me daily spiritual manna as some of the teachings are very very inspirational and also EWTN… May God bless you both. I will pray for you both…

Let me share something I learnt recently about praying. When you are in dee trouble at heart… pray for millions who are going through the same troubles… praying for others bring blessings upon you. I learnt this at a catholic retreat that I attended a month ago. It was a life changing experience… for anyone interested it is run by the catholic church in India. http://www.drcm.org/

Please do pray for my best friend who has to go for a mammogram on Tuesday. She says her cerum tests are not good and suspects cancer. I am heratbroken. She lives in Australia now and thousands of miles away. Pray if it is God’s will that I maybe able to go visit her to the miraculous healing of God the father. She is not a christian but I know loves God but has given up hope and feels God has abandoned her as she has gone through untold amount of trials the past 2 years… please… please pray for healing so that she will be saved physically and emotionally and enjoy the peace and joy that we experience which comes only though knowing Jesus…

Thanks you and God bless you all…

AMEN!!!

Lord Jesus Christ, You have willed that St. Dymphna should be invoked by thousands of clients as the patroness of nervous and mental disease and have brought it about that her interest in these patients should be an inspiration to and an ideal of charity throughout the world. Grant that, through the prayers of this youthful martyr of purity, those who suffer from nervous and mental illness everywhere on earth may be helped and consoled. .

Be pleased to hear the prayers of St. Dymphna and of Your Blessed Mother. Give those whom I recommend the patience to bear with their affliction and resignation to do Your divine will. Give them the consolation they need and especially the cure they so much desire, if it be Your will. Through Christ, Our Lord. Amen.
