Please pray for my sister


#1

She just found out she is pregnant and is talking about getting an abortion, my family is devastated with this news and desperately trying to talk her out of it but she is very impulsive and irrational in her actions. That i know of this would be her second abortion :frowning: i will try to reason with her but i know our best chances is prayer, so please pray that she will change her mind. we need all the prayer we can get!


#2

Praying a Rosary for your sister, the baby, and your family.

I will pray for her and her baby also.

Hear is a beautiful prayer I found online (Fr. Angelus Shaughnessy was on EWTN for years before his present assignment in PA. He’ s the National Executive Director of the Archconfraternity of Christian Mothers.)

A PRAYER
FOR THE UNBORN
Heavenly Father, in Your love for us,
protect against the wickedness of the devil,
those helpless little ones to whom
You have given the gift of life.
Touch with pity the hearts of those women pregnant
in our world today who are not thinking of motherhood.
Help them to see that the child they carry
is made in Your image, as well as theirs,
made for eternal life.
Dispel their fear of selfishness
and give them true womanly hearts
to love their babies
and give them birth
and all the needed care that a mother can give.
We ask this through Jesus Christ,
Your Son, Our Lord
Who lives and reigns with You
and the Holy Spirit, One God,
forever and ever.
Amen
(Authored by Father Angelus Shaughnessy,
Order of Friars Minor, Capuchin.)

Father, Jesus, Holy Spirit, please protect this little baby’s life;
and please protect Cindy’s sister from the sin and damage of killing her baby.
Mother Mary please obtain of God the protection of this baby,
and of this mother’s soul.

So I haven’t spoken to my sister yet, but my mother has told me that she has not yet gotten the abortion and is warming up to the idea of being a mother! i hope she doesnt change her mind. a big thank you to everyone praying for her. I will keep you in my prayers as well. Its comforting to know that i have a bigger family in Christ that i can turn to when in need!

your sister in Christ,

Cindy
