Prayer for the Enlightenment of my in-laws


#1

May I ask you to join me in praying for my in-laws. We used to be a Catholic family. Since my youngest brother-in-law joined the born again church in the Philippines (and has been a rabid anti-Catholic) he has convinced my mother-in-law, brother-in-law and sister-in-law to join him in their services. No amount of discussion on Scriptural truths would faze him. Now my mother-in-law has started skipping attending the Mass. Only my immediate family has been save by grace to remain Catholic. Pls. join me in praying for their enlightenment. May our Lord heal them from their blindness. May the Lord unite us as a family in His truth and in His love. Mother Mary, pray for us.

Father, in Jesus’ name, please send Your Holy Spirit upon pvb’s in-laws. Please give them grace to return to the Faith and the Sacraments. Lord please this family in Your truth love.

I praise and thank You, Father, that pvb’s family has remained true to the Sacraments!
Thank You for this wonderful blessing!
Please help them to remain faithful and a witness to others.

Please help us to continue praising and thanking You for the graces You have given to this family and will continue to give them,
and for the graces that in time You will give to the rest of the family.
Father we offer this prayer and this honour in the name of Your beloved Son, Jesus.

Eternal Father, in the name of Jesus, please give to victims of abuse the grace and wisdom not to allow others’ verbal cruelty to destroy their vision of themselves as loved children of God.

Please grant that couples and parents and children do not abuse others by assigning blame and accepting none themselves, and by refusing to give each other a respectful, receptive hearing.

Bring to light the plight of abused children, youth, women and men. Numerous infants, children, adults and elderly are abused or neglected. Rescue the abused from dangerous situations, and provide them with healing and safe environments. Let their grievances cry out for repentance and healing of their murderers and persecutors, and plead for their own loving protection.

Heal those who are crushed or wounded and cowed by others’ abuse, blame, or unforgiveness. Grant grace that their abusers repent of their blame, cruelty and neglect. Please shock and heal abusers into reforming. Surround their victims with Your light and love, and inspire them not to remain victims after the abuse is over.

Our Father and theirs, let it be that all persons, born and unborn, will come to be received with the welcome Christ offers to each person, in gladness, care, hope, blessing and love.

Mother Mary please intercede for victims of verbal and other abuse.
Angels and saints of the abused, please pray for them, that they will find protection and healing.
