Please Pray for Self-Harming Friend

Please pray for my friend who is in a very dark place right now, and feels compelled to harm herself with sharp objects.

I fear she is being oppressed by evil, and I know she wants to turn it around.

Please help her by praying for her conversion and deliverance from any oppression by evil…either in her own mind, in the world, or something more supernatural.

Please also pray for her children, that they will not be harmed by her unhealthy behavior.

God bless.

Praying for your friend…

Our Father…

Hail Mary…

Dear St. Anthony,
you were prompt to fulfill all justice.
You gave God and His creation
the service He required from you.
You respected other people’s rights
and treated them with kindness and understanding.
St. Anthony, Zealous for Justice,
teach me the beauty of this virtue.
Make me prompt to fulfill all justice toward God
and toward all creation.
Help me also in my pressing needs.

(State your needs here…)to give interior help of the Holy Spirit to this woman in her time of need.


O good and gentle St. Anthony,
your love of God
and concern for His creatures made you worthy,
while on earth,
to possess miraculous powers.
Come to my help
in this moment of trouble and anxiety.
your ardent love of God
made you worthy to hold the Holy infant in your arms.
Whisper to Him my humble request,

Praying hard.

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.


Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of death.


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.


May your friend experience conversion and deep healing, and be delivered from anything oppressing her or causing her to obsess. May our Lord protect her and her children. May your friend meet with a holy priest for the help she needs; may she turn to the Lord and stop hurting herself. Amen.

Dear God of life and healing, all of us stand in need of Your healing touch. Whether our malady is physical, psychological, or spiritual, we ask to be made clean. I pray that you restore this self-harming friend to the fullness of life and peace. Holy Spirit comfort her and heal her, so that she may no longer hurt herself. Amen
