Prayers Needed


#1

I am contemplating on leaving the Bible Study Group that I have been in for a long time, nine years in fact. I would like to start a new group but I’m afraid to do it. The bible group I’m in now just doesn’t have the same excitment for me that it once had. I don’t want to hurt the members feelings by leaving and starting my own group but I’m finding that I’m making more excuses lately for not attending bible study with them.

I need your prayers most of all but I also would like your comments and ideas.

Thank you and God Bless

Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

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 and lead us not in to temptation but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Stephanie, I ask the Holy Spirit to guide you, and to inspire you as to whether you can help rejuvenate your Bible group, or whether you need to move on. May God’s love, gentleness, wisdon and truth be with You.

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.
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.
Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God, cast into hell satan, and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen

Dear Lord, help Stephanie discern what she should do about starting a new group at her parish. Send your Holy Spirit to Stephanie and inform her heart how she could start a new group without offending her friends in the old Bible study group. I don’t understand what kind of group she wants to start, but I don’t see anything offensive in starting another group for the parish to enjoy. If Stephanie wants to start a new Bible study group, that might create problems with the old members, yes, but maybe she could start a new group involving the Bible without it being an official Bible Study Group. Maybe she could start a prayer group or a group devoted to Mary where the scriptures could be read and discussed. I pray that things work out for Stephanie and that she is able to bring new life to her parish family. I pray that the people in the Bible study group are open to another group for them to enjoy at the parish. Amen.
