Prayer Intervention for my Son Needed


#1

I ask that you pray for my son. His bad choices in life have finally caught up with him. In a way, I thank God for that, as he has gotten away with things for too long, and never really had to answer for his mistakes. Until now.

I am here today to ask for a prayer intervention for him to change his life. He has been away from God for many years, despite a Catholic school education. Substance abuse, flunked out of college, in trouble with the law, poor choices of friends, disrespectful to family, you name it, he’s done it.

Please, if you will, pray for my son, that his current situation will make him think about his life and what a mess he has made of it in 22 short years. Pray that he will use his intelligent mind to see that he is the one that has cased his own problems, and that only he can fix them. His mistakes and troubles are his own doing. Pray that he will be lead to an awakening of the truth.

Lord, I pray that you have broken my son down completely and that now you will build him up. You alone can change his life and make him whole again. I turn him over to you and ask that you do whatever is Your will for him. He is lost. He is in a place where only you can find him. Be by his side and shield him from harm. I ask this through the intercession of Your Most Holy Mother, Mary.

Continued prayers for your son’s conversion of heart, mind and spirit.

Irishmom, my dear friend , as you say , your son had a good Catholic education had good role models in his parents , but yet chose to make wrong choices in his life . There is a parallel here in the life of St Augustine , who had the good role model of a Christian
mother in St.Monica , but abandoned all to live a dissolute life . Through the intervention of his mother , and his conversion by St.Ambrose of Milan , he was brought back to God .
So on behalf of your son , I offer up the following prayer :

O FATHER of mercies, from whom cometh all that is good, I offer my humble petitions unto Thee through the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy dearly beloved Son, our Lord and Redeemer, in whom Thou art always well pleased and who loves Thee so much. Grant me the grace of a lively faith, a firm hope and an ardent charity toward Thee and toward my neighbour . Grant me also the grace to be truly penitent for all my sins together with a firm purpose of never offending Thee again; so that I may be enabled to live always according to Thy divine good-pleasure, to do Thy most holy will in all things with a generous and willing heart, and to persevere in Thy love even to the end of my life. Amen

Praying from today’s Liturgy of the Hours:

Most kind God, may we learn today to imitate you more closely.
Our nature fell with Adam: raise it to its feet.
– May your word be a lantern to guide our steps.

Give us your word as a lantern to guide our footsteps:
if we follow you truly, every action will increase our love.
– May your word be a lantern to guide our steps.

Teach us to do faithfully what is good, for the sake of your name,
so that the Church shines more brightly on the whole family of man.
– May your word be a lantern to guide our steps.

Give us sincere repentance: make us more and more seek your friendship
and atone for our sins against your wisdom and goodness.
– May your word be a lantern to guide our steps.

Lord, please do not abandon Irishmom2’s son and intervene in his life; please grant him a personal encounter with you and help him to open his heart and mind to you. He needs you now more than ever, and like the Prodigal Son, he is in the perfect position to realize the error of his ways and make his return to you. Like the Prodigal Son, may he be awaked to his need for you and may he return to you with a contrite heart and a willingness to live differently. Please grant that he will come to his senses and have a change of heart. May his guardian angel inspire him to pray, to do spiritual reading, to be respectful to his parents, to frequent the sacraments and may he cooperate with these graces. Please intervene in this young man’s life and have pity on his soul. Be merciful and grant him extra graces to move his heart to seek you, to love you, and to live a good life. Father, forgive him, for he knows not what he does. He is young and in need of much spiritual maturity; he needs many graces from your merciful hand. Please, in your mercy, give him the best chance to convert and be saved. Thank you, Lord, for hearing my prayer.
