Pray for my mother, please.

Hi. Today I came home from Mass, and read a note in my Mum’s handwriting. I’d only read a bit of it when my Mum took it off me. She said in it that she could find no way out of this “hell”. She’s a good person, and I asked her whether she’d taken this to God in prayer.

“No”, she said. I’m going to try to explain to her a bit about offering her suffering up for the good of the world and for the remission of sin (a good idea to touch on, as this is Lent). But I hear that people today want quick-fixes, and aren’t as prepared to wait and suffer patiently as they used to be.

She’s rather sick at the moment, so is perhaps more vulnerable to the family situation as a result. I’ll pray a rosary tonight for her, and have a few masses read for her.

Thanks for hearing this request and interceding for her.

:gopray:

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.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

Glory Be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning is now ever shall be world without end
Amen.

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

Praying the Holy Mother Mary to bless your mom.

Your ideas to try to help your mother sound good, and I truly hope that they are able to help her with her despair. Always remember to be ever-patient and compassionate with her, it is so hard to know exactly what someone is going through in their heart, even those we know closely. I hope and pray that she may be delivered from all sadness and despair and any other negative feelings she may be experiencing. I also pray for her protection and healing from all problems, particularly the illness you mentioned, and I pray that she may find the strength, hope and courage to suffer through all her afflictions, realizing the infinite worth and value she has as a beloved child of God and seeing that the universe truly is ruled by a perfectly good Lord, even when it seems otherwise. I pray for the forgiveness of all her sins and I pray for your own forgiveness, healing, protection and strength, and I ask for the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, your mother’s guardian angel, and St. Michael the Archangel. God bless. :slight_smile:

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou
O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God
Thrust into Hell, Satan and all the evil spirits
Who prowl about the world, seeking the ruin of souls.
Amen.

God bless your dear mother, friend, and you and your whole family.

Thy name is my healing, O my God, and remembrance of Thee is my remedy. Nearness to Thee is my hope, and love for Thee is my companion. Thy mercy to me is my healing and my succor in both this world and the world to come. Thou, verily, art the All-Bountiful, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.

Bahá’u’lláh

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

Amen.

Go to You tube and find the video “Sin and it’s effects”. It sounds like your Mother is suffering from spiritual blindness. i myself am battling this.

Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.
