Sister engaged in abusive & complicated relationship

Hello, whoever reads this, please pray hard for my family and another. My sister is engaged to the son of the other family. He is a bit abusive, the whole other family is a bit abusive to mine. My family isn’t perfect (obviously) so we just make things worse. My other sister is trying to plan things for their wedding, and working with them is impossible. We can’t just break away from these people. We and the other family are part of a small Catholic community. My mother, oldest sister (not getting married), and second oldest (getting married) are all in sch a terrible situation. Please pray, especially for my sister who is supposed to be married in August. (She was actually supposed to be married last December but my mother pleaded with her to put it off (for every imaginal reason (spiritual, circumstantial, financial, etc…)) and the other family’s mother is very verbally abusive to mine for putting it off. She takes it as my mother saying her son isn’t good enough, just like she takes everything else my mother says in a self-centered way.) I’m sorry for ranting, it’s just such a hard situation. Please Pray, God Bless.

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.

PRAYER IN A TIME OF TRIBULATION

O Lord, hear my cry pouring out from a troubled heart. The sorrow which clutches at my soul has driven me to You my protector, my True Friend in time of need. You know, my God, all my failings, my faults and my sins as well as the torment gripping my soul. My greatest sorrow should be for my disregard of Your holy commandments in the past, and I sincerely hope that you will grant me the grace of true contrition. O my Savior, hide not Your Face from me in this tribulation, let the light of Your Countenance shine upon me that I may be illuminated by Its love. If it be Your will, lighten this burden from me, yet should it be a means of my salvation, help me, help me O Lord, to carry this cross, for alone I can do nothing. Radiate Your love upon Your prodigal child O Lord, this beggar who knocks at Your door seeking shelter in Your Sacred Heart; this once proud earthen vessel made of clay seeks You, O Christ, and in a newly found faith, firmly believes that you will receive him in Your limitless Love and Mercy. Amen.

Jesus, I trust in You!

Prayer to Saint Maximilian Maria Kolbe

St. Maximilian, amidst the hate and lonely misery of Auschwitz, you brought love into the lives of fellow captives and sowed the seeds of hope amidst despair. You bore witness to the world by word and deed that “Love alone creates.” Help me to become more like you. With the Church and Mary and you, may I proclaim that “Love alone creates.” To the hungry and oppressed, the naked and homeless, the scorned and hated, the lonely and despairing, may I proclaim the power of Christ’s love, which endures forever and ever. Amen.

Prayer for the Help of the Holy Spirit

O God, send forth Your Holy Spirit into our hearts
that we may perceive, into our minds, that we may
remember, and into our souls that we may meditate.
Inspire us to speak with piety, holiness, tenderness,
and mercy.

Guide our thoughts and senses from beginning to end.
May Your grace ever help and correct us, and may we
be strengthened now with wisdom from on high, for
the sake of Your infinite mercy. In Jesus’ name, amen.

– St. Anthony of Padua

Prayers for a Family in Conflict

Lord Jesus, be with this family. Grant them Your
peace and harmony, an end to conflict, and division.
Give them the compassion to better understand one
another, wisdom, and love to assist one another,
and trust and patience to live peacefully together. Grant
that through the intercession of Your Mother, Mary,
and St. Joseph, Your earthly father, this family may
become a holy family accepting one another, working
together in unity, selflessly dedicated to one another
and to You. Amen.
