Prayer for my family...

I am 13 and a convert.

I am living happily while I wait of my baptism and one of my prayers everyday is that my mother, stepfather and my two brothers will see the Catholic faith and love it as I do.

They are somewhat suspicious of the catholic church and as athiests see it as the opposite of their beliefs.

Please pray for my family, my mother suffers from many disabilities and is disabled, my stepdad is in debt and I care for the whole family.

The church is my solace.

Help me, please.

Chloe

Eternal God , in whom mercy is endless,
and the treasury of compassion inexhastible ,
look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us ,
that in difficult moments we might not despair
nor become despondent , but with great confidence ,
submit ourselves to Your Holy Will ,
which is love and mercy itself . Amen

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

: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.

Prayers said for your family that the Holy Spirit will enkindle in their heart a desire for the Catholic Faith. Prayers for your mother that she be given strength to deal with her disabilities and some reprieve from debt for your stepdad. It sounds like you have a lot on your plate, so to speak. Bless you for caring.

If the Church is your solace then I hope that you have some friends and some type of support system for yourself with such a cross to carry. I also hope you have reached out to agencies and the Church for any assistance they can give to you with food, etc.

Mary.

Amen.
