Please pray for my fiance to come back to the Catholic Church

Hey everyone. I had a prayer intention thread for David to come back to the Catholic Church in the past but it got closed because it didn’t have any replies for a while so I am opening a new thread. David hasn’t really practiced his faith much since he received the Sacrament of Confirmation. However, he has started going to Mass with Colton and I every weekend because our priest told him that he should if he wants to get married in the Church. We have been going together for about 3 weeks now. Then, today, David told me he wants to practice his faith again. I am so happy that he has decided he wants to do that! I told him that he ought to go to Confession if he wants to practice his faith and I think he agrees with me but he definitely seems to have some anxiety about going but I am sure that’s normal since he hasn’t been in many years. If you would, please pray for David’s faith to increase and for him to go to Confession and start practicing the faith more fully again. Thank you.

I will pray for your fiance. If he has anxiety about confession, sometimes it is easier if you write out a list and take it with you. (and it gives you something to look at :slight_smile: )

Thanks be to God. Prayers for our Lord to vanquish his anxiety and welcome him back to the faith.

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

Prayer for the Return of Lapsed Catholics to the Sacraments

Almighty Father,
You desire not the death of sinners, but that they may be
converted and live. Pour out upon us Your mercy and hear
the prayers of Your servants. Soften the hearts of Your children
who have strayed from the true path, which You established
for their salvation.

Grant that they may quickly return to the practice of every
Christian virtue, so that their lives may shine with the integrity
of faith, the fervor of piety, and the ardor of charity. Restore
them to Your sacraments and the life of Your grace, through
the most precious body and blood of Your Son Jesus, who
lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit , one God, for
ever and ever. Amen

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.

sinners, now and at the hour of our death.
Amen. (x10)

GLORY BE to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the
beginning is now, and ever shall be, world
without end. Amen.

O MY JESUS, forgive us our sins, save us
from the fires of Hell; lead all souls to
Heaven, especially those in most need of
Thy mercy. Amen.

Hey everyone. David told me he’s a little angry at God because of what his room mate and our mutual friend, Donald, is going through with his health. He’s not wanting to go to Mass this weekend. He’s been in a very stressed and depressed state lately because Donald nearly died this week. In fact, he’s still not out of the woods. I have another prayer thread going for him. I’m not sure if David still wants to practice his faith or not. Please continue praying for him.
