Pray for my little brother


#1

Please pray for my little brother, who is still in college. He is losing is faith, if he has not already lost it. He has been reading a lot of non-Catholic materials (many anti-Catholic) and is into reincarnation and all the eastern spirituality type thoughts. Most of his friends are online and agrees with his views or they are the cause of it. Whenever speaking about Christianity, he just shuts off and tells me not to preach to him; and he disagrees with a lot of it’s teaching.

I’m at a loss for words; just sadness pervades me when thinking about him. I can only guessed what other Catholic brothers, sisters or parents have to go through when a family member of theirs decided to leave Christ behind for the world.

God bless,
Ben

Lord Jesus, you are the Good Shepard who lays down his life for his sheep. I beg you Lord, bring back this little sheep of yours. Draw him back into your green pastures, and be with him all of his days. Holy Spirit, open his eyes to the evils and dangers of the world that he may turn to the safe harbor of Christ’s perfect love and mercy. I also pray for sinners across the world, May they turn to Christ and someday rejoice in his presence in eternal life.
Amen.

Hail Mary, Full of Grace, The Lord is with Thee
Blessed art Thou amongst 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.

PSALM 123*

Reliance on the Lord

  1. A song of Ascents

To you I raise my eyes;
to you enthrowned in heaven.
2. Yes, like the eyes of a servant
on the hands of his master;
Like the eyes of a maid
on the hands of her mistress,
So our eyes are on the Lord our God,
till we are shown favor,
3. Show us favor, show us favor O Lord,
for we have our fill of contempt.
4We have our fill of insult from the insolent,
of disdain from the arrogant.

May God guide your brother back home to Him. He who is all good and deserving of all of our love.

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy towards us. And after this our exile, show unto us the blessed Fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary. Pray for us, o Holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. Amen.

Jesus please surround Ben’s brother with Your love and light.
Help him to seek truth deep within the richness of the Church and in the gospels, not outside in false teachings.
Please reclaim him for Your own.
