Please pray for my best friend's salvation


#1

Could you all please pray for my best friend, Darrell, that he would eventually get baptized and lead a Christian life. Please pray also that when he does get baptized that he would be baptized in to the Catholic Church and come in to full communion with the Catholic Church. Thank you.

Praying for Darrell and you, Holly.

Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with Thee.
Blessed art Thou among women,
and Blessed is the Fruit
of Thy Womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.
Amen

TO BE A DISCIPLE OF JESUS CHRIST
"He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire."
Lord God, you who provide the fire
for a transformed life,
I come before you this day
and beg for the fire of your love and mercy for Darrell

I pray for the fire of your Spirit to lead him
in repentance and conversion
so he may be faithful in following you.
I pray for the fire of your love
to ignite his heart with love for his
brothers and sisters

I pray for the fire of faith for him,
to be committed to you and your teaching
as a servant to His Master.
I pray for the fire of your desire to save all mankind
to inflame him so that he can witness to the
Good News of Jesus Christ
and be a channel for the salvation of mankind.
Amen.

Thanks everyone. As far as any seeds that have been planted, I doubt that they will grow. He hates the Catholic Church. :frowning:

Welllll… you never know. There was a time when I was *quite *anti-relgion-in-general myself. Just keep praying!

In Christ,

Francesca

Lord, please inspire Darrell to become a part of Your body on earth, the Church. May his heart be softened and turned to the Church for answers when he is too perplexed to make any sense out of things. Help him to get to a state of mind and heart where he is open to new things and to Your love and Holy Spirit operating in the world. May Holly never give up praying for Darrell or give up on him becoming Catholic. It’s what he should do. - All I ask is that you grace him with the desire to look into the Church and into becoming baptized. I know you will finish the work you already started at that point and will be able to make him into a true blue Catholic. Thank you, Lord. Amen.
