Young woman with scruples


Please pray for a young woman I know who is suffering with severe scruples. She’s being emotionally worn out and I believe her parents are seeking religious and mental help for her. I feel terrible for her because I do know what it feels like on a somewhat lesser scale.

St. Dymphna, pray for us! St. Joseph, pray for us!


Prayed that God would give this woman mental and emotional healing. May this woman be kinder to herself; I pray this in Jesus’ mighty name. 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 us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
