Prayer for the Child Welfare System


#1

I hope this prayer request isn’t too political. If you don’t mind, I would appreciate your prayers in respect to this issue.

  1. For the prevention and end of child abuse, neglect and maltreatment, as well as bringing justice, peace, hope and healing for what has happened.
  2. For the child welfare and foster care systems to be safe, stable and nurturing places for those in need (but prevent its need whenever possible).
  3. For more children and youth from disadvantaged situations such as broken homes and poor communities to break the cycle and have more “happy endings.”
  4. For a neighboring child I’m been concerned about, for his safety, health and well-being (as well as for his soul and the souls of all at-risk children and youth).

Prayed for all your intentions, in the name of Jesus, Amen.

One of the best prayer requests I’ve ever read. I’m thinking of including two of your intentions in my daily prayers. God bless you.

O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!

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 art thou amongst 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.

Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world. x10

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

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.

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.

Dear Jesus who loved the little children, in Your name I humbly pray for the help of all children in need and for all those involved in trying to help them both within and without of the child welfare systems. Please watch over all the children and provide the resources and guidance to the agencies to best help every child. Amen.

Holy Mary, St. Joseph and St. Nicholas, please pray for these intentions. Thank you. Amen.
