Prayers for my Stepdad

Please pray for my stepfather, who is living a life of vice and dissension. Since the time he did not contribute to the family and instead fulfilling his personal needs for the last 6 months, he rejected us and my mom. He is currently taking drugs, engaging in prostitution and drinking. We are currently thinking of sending him to jail amidst persistent prayer for his conversion. Your prayers are much appreciated to save him from vice and his conversion.

Praying for your family, that you all get the strength you need to make it through this, and for your stepdad, that he realizes the hurt he’s causing, and comes to God.

Praying to the Holy Spirit to give your Stepfather guidance, direction, strength, fortitude & wisdom in his time of need.

Eternal Father,

We come before you to ask that you might heal our brother’s family. Please bring his father to You and let him see how he is destroying their family, cause in him a renewed heart of contriteness. Ease the hearts and minds of the mother and children, please bring peace upon the family. We ask in Our Lord Jesus. Amen ~ Tem

I’m sorry. I don’t know where I assumed you were a brother. Brother or Sister, you are in my prayers.

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.


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.

**O Blessed Mother of God,
who went up to the Temple according to the law
with your offering of little white doves,
pray for me that I too may keep the law
and be pure in heart like you.

Sweet heart of Mary,
be my salvation.
