Pray for those who have lost their way


Please pray for those who have lost their way. Who once could see the light of God, but now have turned against. —A dear friend of mine. Please pray for him that he sees the light of God, and the power of God. So that he can realize the power of prayer, and hear God’s voice. Please pray for him so that he may understand the importance of the Jesus Christ and the Church.


For your friends and for others who have lost their way:

In Jesus’ name, Father, we offer faithful prayer for those we know who are outside of, or reject Your truths. We pray for the lukewarm, and for all Catholics who make a poor witnesses of the Catholic Faith and the commandments of love. We pray for ourselves and each other that we will become true followers of Christ.

We pray for all who are very worldly, who are atheist, or agnostic, for those who call themselves Christian but fail to live gospel values and truth, for instance by supporting abortion. We ask grace to pray deeply and constantly for their full conversion.

Father, please pour Your Holy Spirit upon them and bring about their conversion and salvation in Jesus Christ. Please draw them deeply into Sacramental and gospel life, with faith and faithfulness.

We ask the outpouring of Your Spirit upon all family and friends, and those whom we do not know that all will come to know and love God above all and others as self.

We include all unnamed and named persons in our lives and for whom we have concern

praying for your friend and those who have strayed …

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


Praying hard.


Lord, I pray for concerneduser’s friend and for all those who have lost their way. Help them to come to the light and confess their sins to a priest and be embraced by your loving, welcoming arms, so eager to hold them. May they be inspired by grace to see where they have failed and be courageous to seek help in you and in a priest. May they all return to the sacraments and find their peace of heaven on earth. They are your dear children who you love so tenderly. Help them to want to know you more, love you more, and serve you well in this life so they can be with you for all eternity singing your praises with joy and peace with all the saints and angels. Thank you, Lord, for hearing my prayer. Amen.
