Please pray for my family-I am desperate

I have asked several times for prayers for a R&C and their 5 children. Due to the current situation I am coming clean and letting you know this is my son and his family. Dear friends I have been crying since Thursday when he was arrested for the 3rd time. My Daughter in Law will not let him discipline the children. She emasculates him, and has admitted to having him falsely arrested in the past after I bonded him out. This time I fear the worse will happen. One of grandchildren called and said Daughter In law was scheming withe her Mother of what to say to prosecutor to get him locked up for a long time and get all the money. Scenario was my oldest grandchild (18) was supposed to shovel the snow… He had all day to do it but waited until evening then didn’t finish doing it because he wanted to go somewhere. My son tried to show him what wasn’t done but the kid told him to Shut up and walked away. My son grabbed his arm at which point Grandson bent over and bit his finger very hard not letting go. My son struggled with him and G son punched him very hard in his bad eye. (My son had a serious injury years ago and wears a patch. He has no fluid in his eye, nor a retina) Daughter in law once again called police and she and G Son lied and had him arrested. This is going to trial and if they don’t believe a’ll the abuse my son has sustained over the years he will go to jail for 1 to 5 years as he was in jail twice before for similar incidents. He is not allowed back in his house and is very depressed. He has worked 16 hour days for 20 years as she spends like she has the money of a millionaire. $700 hairdo’s, the best furniture, cars, etc. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Counselors have said she’s psychotic at which time she verbally abuses them and leaves. I am asking that you shower God with prayers for his safety and an end to all this craziness. I can’t get ahold of him past 2 days, he lives a few hundred miles away, and I don’t know where he is. I am sick sick sick over this, and haven’t slept in 3 days. His eye , head, and finger injuries are very bad. Even though I wasn’t there I know he’s telling the truth as I’ve witnessed her abusive episodes, and have also been on the receiving end of them. Please forgive me for how long this is. I am also praying for God to let me know if I should move to his city so I could be there for him and the younger grandchildren who witness all of it. This is one of those situations that the woman could win an Oscar for her performance, the police believe her and the man gets the raw deal. I’m very afraid. Have been praying non stop. I am going to take a trip up there to try and locate him and be with him at the pre-trial. Please pray.
God Bless you, Catie

Lord Jesus Christ we lift this family up to you and pray for peace and healing.

I’m surprised that the Son has not left
the abusive and toxic situ long ago!!
Anyway, I pray that he will be able to
get thru this trouble w/ the law and
perhaps get some lawyer to help him
defend himself from FURTHER attacks
on his character!!

Our Father, who is in heaven,
hallowed be Your Name,
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.

Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is w/ you,
blessed are you among women,

Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.
Amen. (X3)

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.

Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

I humbly implore you to grant your special graces to our family. May our home be the shrine of peace, purity, love, labor and faith. I beg you, dear Jesus, to rpotect and bless all of us, absent and present, living and dead.

Prayer to Our Lady of Mental Peace

O Lady of Mental Peace,

For Help in Trials

Most holy apostle St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered your beloved Master into the hands of His enemies has caused you to be forgotten by many. But the Church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of hopeless cases–of things despaired of. Pray for me who feels so hopeless. Make use, I implore you, of that particular privilege accorded to you of bringing visible and speedy help where help is almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in this great need, that I may receive the consolations and succor of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations and sufferings, in particular Catie59 and family, and that I may bless God with you and all the elect throughout eternity. I promise you, O Blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, and I will never cease to honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to do all in my power to encourage devotion to you. Amen.

:gopray:

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 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 death.

Amen. †

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.

St. Thérèse of Liseux Prayer From “Story of A Soul”

May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received,
and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content knowing you are a child of God.
Let this presence settle into your bones,
and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise, and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.

Amen. †

Lord, thank you that you are with me right now.
Your love surpasses all fear.
I give you the anxiety I feel.
I surrender all my worries to you.
Clear my mind;
Calm my heart;
Still my Spirit;
Relax my being, that, I may
always glorify you in everything
I write, speak and do.

Amen. †

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.

Amen.

Let Nothing Disturb You

Let nothing disturb you,
Let nothing frighten you,
All things are passing away:
God never changes.

Patience,
Obtains all things,
Whoever has God
Lacks nothing:
God alone suffices.

Santa Teresa de Jesús
(Santa Teresa de Ávila)

Thank You, dear Lord Jesus.

Amen.
