Pray for those fallen away

Please pray for those who have, for whatever reason, fallen away from the Catholic Church. Pray for those of us who especially have close friends and family in this situation, that we may be open to the will of God to be an extension of His arms and to reach out to those who have been hurt by the “church”, those who are confused, and are spiritually lost. Pray that we would have the courage to be bold in our faith and share the faith as our Heavenly Father has called us. May God bless each of you as you pray for this intention and any family or friends who have fallen away.

:amen:

So I do :slight_smile: One of the intentions I always include in my Morning Offering each day, and other prayers I say during the day, is conversion of those who have fallen away.

In my prayers

I’d be happy to pray for this… Thank you for sharing and suggesting this :slight_smile:

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.

**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.**

Praying to the Holy Spirit to give them all guidance & direction back to the Catholic Church.

Dear God, please reach out to them and guide them back to Your Church. Amen.

Holy Michael the Archangel defend us in the day of battle.
Be our safeguard 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 down to hell satan and all the wicked spirits,
who wander through the world for the ruin of souls.
Amen.

Remember, O most loving Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession and was left forsaken. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you I come, before you I stand, a sorrowful sinner. Despise not my words, O Mother of the Word, but in your mercy, hear and answer me.
Amen

**Father, source of light in every age,
the virgin conceived and bore Your Son
Who is called Wonderful God,
Prince of Peace.
May her prayer,
the gift of a mother’s love,
be Your people’s joy through all ages.
May her response,
born of a humble heart,
draw Your Spirit to rest on Your people.
Grant this through Christ our Lord.

Amen. **

***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.

O Almighty and Eternal God, who savest all, and willest not that any should perish, look, we beseech Thee, upon the souls that are led astray by the deceits of the devil; that, rejecting all errors, the hearts of those who err may be converted, and return to the unity of Thy truth.
