PLEASE pray for my son


#1

I feel so sad and so alone. My 19 year old son is away at college and he has called me and says he thinks he is gay. He says he is not attracted to girls and doesn't know what is wrong with him. He also stated that he has been made fun of growing up and called "gay", so he feels different. I am beyond heartbroken. I know with God all things are possible, and I humbly ask any of you who would be willing to pray for my precious son. I am in grief about the life I felt he might live someday. I am concerned for his soul.
Thank you and God bless you....

Lord, Mama Mary, I pray that the son of isabella13 be guided by your holy spirit. Allow him to continue doing good deeds. Give him and supportive friends along the way. Give his parents the strength to accept everything wholeheartedly.

Memorare (Prayer to Our Lady)
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection,
implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.
To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions,
but in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen

Praying!

Also, here are some links to talks by Catholics who lived the gay lifestyle and experienced a conversion. They have some good information.

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
Amen.

Pater noster, qui es in coelis: sanctificetur nomen tuum: adveniat regnum tuum:
fiat voluntas tua sicut in coelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie: et dimitte nobis debita nostra, sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem. Sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum; benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Jesus. Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.

Thank you so much for all your prayers. They mean more than you could ever imagine. Every time I talk to my son, I just want to ask a million questions, but I try to refrain. I don’t want to drive him away. I would love some small reassurance from him that this might not be true, but none yet. I told him how hard I am praying, and that others were also. I also told him God never would want him in this lifestyle, that it is only the desires of the flesh, and he had to redirect himself before he becomes immersed. I only hope he will at least listen. I will keep you posted as to how this turns out. I know when I pray, it is nice to know whatever became of that person and situation. I still cry often, but your prayers, and the prayers of his sisters, I can feel them giving me strength. There aren’t many family members I can turn to, my parents would just die if they heard this, and I don’t want him labeled. Thank you again, I know everyone has problems, and I do appreciate your time to pray for my son.

Saint Michael the Archangel ,
defend this young man in battle.
Be his protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke satan, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host -
by the Divine Power of God -
cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.
Amen!
