I want to thank everyone for your prayers in the past cause they really helped me. If you don’t mind could you please say a prayer for my family, there’s so much negativity, sadness, hatred, and anger at home…I can’t take it anymore!! everyone is arguing… and it doesn’t seem to stop. I think my family members are just really stressed out but don’t know how to deal with it. It’s breaking my heart cause I see them suffering and the only help I know is God, but I don’t know if they’re reaching out to Him… I want so much for my family to come back to the Sacraments (they’re Eastern Orthodox) - and I pray for this every day but it doesn’t seem to be happening!! Could you please pray that my mom, dad, and grandma would all come to the Sacraments, and open up to God’s love, if that is what they need (I don’t know their hearts but He does) - and that my grandmother would find faith in Christ… I pray and pray and nothing seems to be happening. sigh I don’t know where they all are with God, but sometimes I get afraid cause we never go to church as a family and never pray and there’s so much anger, unforgiveness, etc… it’s actually breaking my heart! I’m a convert to Catholicism and it would be awesome if my family came to Mass with me, but I always hope that at least they’d start attending the Orthodox church, cause it has the Eucharist too.
I don’t know if I’m wrong for worrying about all this… I know that I should worry about my own soul and work out my own salvation, and not presume to know about others. I don’t consider myself “more saved” than my family, or a better person. I honestly don’t know where they are spiritually. But just the fact that my family is away from the Sacraments, and never pray together, only argue - and the comments I sometimes hear about faith and God - all makes me very sad.
My mom especially is trying to deal with soo many things, and very difficult situations, but she’s trying to do it on her own, and it’s making her depressed and stressed out… I know that God can help and encourage her…
thanks soo much
