My father has walked out on my family as of a few days ago.
He’s left his phone off, and he’s disappeared off the face of the planet for all we know. He took $20,000 or so, and that’s the last we heard of him. This is killing my mom; as many arguments as they’ve had for the past 20+ years, she’s still desperately in love with him. Now she fears that he is seeking a divorce, and it’s breaking her apart.
I’m the only practicing Catholic in my family, so I would like to ask that please… please, if you could find it in your hearts, join me in praying for my family, and for families everywhere in trouble.
Pray that my father’s hardened heart might be moved to compassion so that he might remember his wedding vows. Pray that he might be like St. Joseph, kind and understanding.
Pray that my mother’s hurt might be alleviated by a renewed faith in the Lord. Pray that this pain draws her nearer to Christ’s sacrifice, and that because of it, she might grow.
Pray that he might return, and be the protector and provider he’s always been to my family.
And please, pray that my siblings are comforted in this time of pain; pray that the Lord keep them close to His heart.
I would give my life to see my family together, so I’m asking nothing for myself. Just keep them in your prayers… I would be extremely grateful.
