Please Pray for My Son


#1

Please pray for my son, Spencer, who is 20. He just seems so unhappy and angry lately. I’m not sure what is really going on but he could use prayers. I’m sure it’s not the cheeriest place to be here right now with my husband out of work, etc. but we are trying our best and just want him to be happy.

Thanks so much.

Amie I hope and pray that your husband soon finds work and that your son begins to feel less concerned about the difficult world he is facing. It can be difficult to have hope when the reality of life seems so depressing. Jesus please help Amie’s son, husband, and her to get through this anxious time with hope.
Please grant the family happiness, peace, and security of income.

Dear Jesus from You flows all peace. By Your empowering grace, flood Spencer with a sense of peace and humility which characterize Your children. Grant him maturity and witnesses to these virtues so that he might forever be united to You. Mary, pray with us. Amen. :gopray2:

From today’s Liturgy of the Hours:

Prayers and Intercessions

The son of the living God let himself become the son of a human family. Let us pray to him:

  • Lord, you are our example and our saviour.

Christ, you made yourself subject to Mary and Joseph:
teach us to respect and obey whoever holds rightful authority.
You loved your parents and they loved you:
may every family stand firm and peaceful in mutual love.
In all things you honoured your Father’s will:
may God be honoured in every home.
Christ, after two days your parents found you in your Father’s temple:
teach us to seek the kingdom of God before all else.
Christ, you have united Mary and Joseph in your glory in heaven:
welcome our dead into the family of the blessed.

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.

God, you chose to give us the Holy Family as an example to be followed:
grant that we may follow that example,
binding ourselves in virtue and mutual love,
so that we may come to your house at the last
and receive our eternal reward.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God for ever and ever.
Amen.

All shall be well,
and all shall be well,
and all manner of things shall be well.

As a parent of three sons, one who also seems depressed and angry and anxious at times, I will pray for yours if you will pray for mine. Today is the Feast of the Holy Family. Heavenly Father, May St.Joseph, the patron of all fathers, and our Blessed Mother, through their intercession and prayers may they protect our families, especially our sons who need your help the most. We ask all these prayers, through Christ our Lord Amen.
