Please pray for my brother.


#1

He is 17 and quite emotionally and physically manipulative and violent - going so far as to significantly injure members of my family in the past.

He shows almost no respect for my parents, sisters and myself and has shunned religion - refusing to come to Mass with us, refusing to pray with us and not respecting the family's Catholic faith.

His behaviour is tearing my family apart. I ask you to please keep him in your prayers. Each day I hope that he will realise how much we are suffering and decide to try and change, but it never happens.

Lord, I pray hard for the brother of sparrowhawk28. Please free him from whatever is contributing to his attitude. May he find friends to inspire him to be a better person. I also pray for his family that they never give up and lose hope. May they continue to pray for him. I ask this through the intercession of Mama Mary. AMEN

Thank you all so, so much for your prayers. He is still struggling with his behaviour and by all appearances his faith is still lost, but he seems to be gaining a better understanding of how his words and actions are affecting the family.
May God bless you all and keep you safe.

Praying for your intentions….

Lord Jesus, You have said, "Learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart." With confidence in Your loving heart which offers rest to weary souls, we come to You in this time of special need. In Your unfailing love, read the prayer that is written on our hearts, and grant the grace that we ask of You, in accordance with Your holy will. In Your name we pray. Amen.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, and sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother, to thee I come, before thee I stand sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate! Despise not my petitions, but, in thy mercy, hear and answer me. Amen.
