A reader writes:
Can you spare a few prayers for my stepson?
He’s gay. I’m worried sick about the lifestyle he’s caught up in. He’s had unprotected sex with many men. He hangs out at casual hookup and drug scenes, and I think he’s addicted to Oxycontin.
Father, hear our prayer for this precious son of yours, that he would receive the actual graces necessary to repent and leave this toxic life behind, get the treatment he needs for his addictions and disorders, and find the love and support he needs to walk in newness of life in your Son, who loves him and gave himself for him. We ask this through Christ our Lord and we ask the powerful intercession of Our Lady of Good Help. Amen!
