Praying for Help in Decision About a Friend


#1

My friend Jamie is going through a hard time, and is depending on me for comfort and support.
I’m not sure I have been going about things the best way. In particular I am concerned that in trying to help Jamie I’m allowing my own spiritual life to be harmed.
I think I could prevent this by setting boundaries concerning my time with Jamie.
However I also think doing so will set off emotional “explosions” that could harm Jamie, and to be honest I don’t think I can stand up to my friend in full fury mode.
I intend to spend time in prayer asking Our Lord Jesus to show me the right way to deal with this situation, and I ask anyone who will, please pray for us both over the next several days.

May the peace of Christ be with you all.

Praying for both of you…

[size=2]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.[/size]

O, Lord, I ask that You be the bond between these two friends, so that their relationship will be based on You, rather than anything else. Bring Your peace to both of them, Lord. In Jesus name we pray.

I am praying for the both of you. May you find your balance, may Jamie find understanding.

(Num 6:24)
The LORD bless you and keep you;
the LORD make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you;
the LORD lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.

May the almighty God bless you, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit…Amen!
