Please pray for my mother's health and parent's conversion to the Faith


Mum had major back surgery a few weeks ago. She is not healing as she should and her hardy, Irish constitution is not helping her this time. Please pray for my parent’s conversion as well.

Thank you

In Christ,


Merciful and loving Father, look with Your unfathomable compassion upon this couple. Grant Heavenly healing to IrishDude45’s mother, as You alone command every cell of our bodies. Relieve her pain and strengthen her to bear up under the healing process until such time as Your will is done. May she offer all of her pain up to Your Son in solidarity with His suffering on the cross. Lovingly provide the two of them with a view to eternity and an assessment of their lives, so that they may embrace the faith of Saint Patrick. Graciously hear the prayers of their son and we beseech You to combine our prayers with those of the Angels and Saints to form an unending petition for healing, mercy, and conversion of heart. We ask this through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, One God for ever and ever. Amen! Alleluia!


Father, in Jesus’ name please grant physical and spiritual healing to this mother. Let Your grace flood into her body and her soul.

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.
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.


Loving God,

We ask for your mercy and healing power for IrishDude’s mother as she ensures the recovery period. Please bless this family and help all to hear your loving and persistent call to be your children. We offer this great prayer of St. Patrick for IrishDude’s family:

Prayer for God’s Protection and Christ’s Presence:

As I arise today, may the strength of God pilot me,
the power of God uphold me, the wisdom of God guide me.
May the eye of God look before me, the ear of God hear me,
the word of God speak for me.
May the hand of God protect me, the way of God lie before me,
the shield of God defend me, the host of God save me.
May Christ shield me today…
Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me,
Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit, Christ when I stand,
Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.



Praying for your parents…
