Could anyone please pray for my family? There are a couple of specifics.
My Sister: She is 17 and pregnant. Out of wedlock and no intention of getting married. Pray that she will return to the Church, hopefully marry, and that the child will be raised a Catholic, the father is from a faithless family. Also both my sister and her boyfriend are being threatened by a local gang for some reason that my sister won’t tell us in an attempt to protect us. Please pray for the three of them that they may be protected from harm.
My Grandfather: Recently he has had some minor strokes and a lot of nasty falls. I don’t think he has much time left. He was raised an Anglican but I have very rarely seen him enter a church, or pray. I feel his mind is too far gone to introduce the faith to him, as an Englishman he has always viewed it with suspicion. Pray for him, that he may be recived into heaven.
My Grandmother: She has very advanced Alzheimers, I have no idea how I can help towards her salvation other than prayer as she has no mental faculties left, so it would be impossible to introduce the faith to her.
My parents: They work a 12 hour shift most days and then have to care for my very fragile grandparents. Pray that they may find some respite.
Also, my father, brothers, sisters and cousins who live with us are atheists, I haven’t been able to convince them, Please pray that myself, my aunt and my mother, their only contact with the Catholic Church, will be more motivated to bring the truth to them.
Thank you to everyone who keeps my family in their prayers.
