Somalie Pirate Hostages


#1

Please remember in your prayers Paul and Rachel Chandler and other people who are being held hostage by Somalie pirates.

A new video has been released, showing them pleading for the goverment to help get them released. Their captors are threating them with death; or being handed over to Islamist extremists. Both very real possibilities. The goverment will not pay any ransome money for them, but is trying to negotiate their release by other apparently futile ways.

Thanks

Cerys

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it 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.
Amen

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among 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

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

Lord, please intervene and help this poor couple be freed from their captors.

Our Father...
Hail Mary...
Glory be...

Amen.

Remember O Most Gracious Virgin Mary
that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence we fly unto thee O Virgin of virgins, our Mother.
To thee do we come, before thee we stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions,
but in thy mercy hear and answer them. Amen.
