Prayer requests for separated family


I’d appreciate all support by prayer for my family. My wife and I separated as of Thursday and I’m very distraught and confused. We’ve 4 children, none together and we were married by The Church. Problem is my birth son and wife never meet eye to eye and my son is at a very rebellious age.I love them both to death including the other 3. I’m scared to discipline my son for fear he’ll leave and go back to his birth mother’s house ( he recently moved in with us). My wife asked me to leave our house or she would leave. I left and i miss them all. She says she’s moving back to her hometown with no chance of mending our relationship. As a Catholic, I feel I need to do whatever means neccessary to fix this problem, but fear its too late. Please pray for my family.


O God, our heavenly Father, who loves mankind and are a most merciful and compassionate God, have mercy upon Your servants ‘never panic and his family’ for whom I humbly pray to You to care for and protect. O God, be their guide and guardian in all their endeavors, lead them in the path of Your truth, and draw them nearer to You, so that they may lead a godly and righteous life in Your love as they do Your will in all things. Give them Your grace, and mercy so that they may be in agreement with your Word, and in one accord, patient, and bring their lives into Your oder. Defend them against the assaults of the enemy, and grant them wisdom and strength to resist all temptation and corruption, make clear their direction that is pleasing to You, through the goodness of Your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ, and the prayers of His Holy Mother and the blessed saints. Amen.




I will pray thet the Lord will guide you into doing the right thing.




I’m praying for your family.


Praying for your family.


May St. Joseph intercede for you and your family and guide you to whatever counseling or other guidance needed to help mend this family back into a loving unit and symbol of God’s love and compassion.


Kept in prayer…


I just want to thank all for your prayers. She still says shes leaving, but your prayers have really put me at ease with this. I don’t feel the numbness I was feeling all weekend. I was actually having some unpleasant thoughts. Now I catch myself smiling a bit and if she does decide to leave me, I wish her happiness and hope she remains in our faith. I love her with all my heart.
Thank you all. Prayer does work !




Heavenly Father, author of all that is good- please watch over ‘this separated family’. You guide men and women of faith daily and I pray that the parents of this family will be open to what is Your will for them. Protect the children and each tender heart of all brothers and sisters involved. Help each to put aside hurt feelings to see the ‘Christ’ in each other.


Keeping you in prayer and the situation and giving thanks for blessings you have received. May The Lord reveal His Will to you and may you find comfort and consolation in Him…Blessings - Barb


My heart goes out to you…May our Mother untie the knots in your relationships and your life.

The knots are ( from the web-site below )… << Knots of discord in your family, lack of understanding between parents and children, disrespect, violence, the knots of deep hurts between husband and wife, the absence of peace and joy at home. They are also the knots of anguish and despair of separated couples, the dissolution of the family. >>

I am currently relying on Mary to untie the knots in a relationship that is very dear to me. So far, it gets worse before it gets better… but the knots are disappearing…albeit in ways that I never would have anticipated.

My suggestion is to trust in God<s Mercy…and remember we are praying for you.




You are in my prayers.


My prayers for strength and healing for you (and your wife and family) at this time :crossrc:
