Please pray for us...

Hello,

 I would like to request a prayer, that we may adopt our niece. She was removed from my sister's custody at birth, due to neglecting her other children who are also in the foster care system. 

 My sister is mentally challenged, as well as my niece's biological father. Both of them live in low income housing, and neither has a job or a stable job history. Both want custody of this child. 

 My niece is almost 3 months old, and has been in our care since she was 3 weeks old. We have fallen in love with her, and desperately want to adopt her. We fear for her wellbeing if she is returned to one of her parents.

 Please pray for us, that our Lord may let us become her parents, and that he will let my sons become her brothers. We all love her so very much. Thank you.

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 our death.

Amen.

Offering a decade of the Rosary for your family.

Praying for you and your whole family, and for your niece, that the best can come out of this for her.

Glorious and holy St. Anne,
whom the Heavens admire, whom the Saints honour, and the earth reveres,
the just, the penitent, and the sinner consider thee as their powerful advocate before God,
for by thine intercession
the just hope for an increase of grace,
the penitent for their justification,
and the sinner for remission of their sins.

Be, then, kind and generous to us.
Pray for us in Heaven.
Use, in our favour, the great influence thou hast before God, particularly for
the intentions of Blessed’s family.

Obtain our request and grant that we may live always close to God. Amen.

Remember, o most pure Spouse of the Virgin Mary, my sweet Protector Saint Joseph, never was it heard that anyone who implored thy help nor sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence I come to thee and to thee do I fervently commend myself. Despise not my petitions, I beseech thee, foster Father of the Redeemer, but graciously hear them. Amen.

Prayer said… Tragic when this situation arises … Hope your wises come true

Eternal God , in whom mercy is endless,
and the treasury of compassion inexhastible ,
look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us ,
that in difficult moments we might not despair
nor become despondent , but with great confidence ,
submit ourselves to Your Holy Will ,
which is love and mercy itself . Amen

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
