Prayer request

A reader writes:

I must beg prayers of you and my fellow readers for a co-worker and her family. She is in a troubled marriage and pregnant. As she and her husband debate divorce they also debate the wisdom of telling their already born children of their yet to be born sibling as a “decision” needs to be made. Please pray for this couple, this endangered child and the other children of these parents. All manner of grace is needed here.

Father, hear our prayer for the healing of this marriage and for the triumph of your grace and love in this family through Christ our Lord. Mother Mary and St. Joseph, pray for them all through Jesus our Lord. Amen.

Another reader asks prayer for his son, who is seriously depressed and is struggling with his studies. Father, hear our our prayer for this young man that he would find healing and the grace to finish his studies successfully through Christ our Lord. Give grace and peace to his father and mother as well as they suffer with him. Mother Mary and St. Dymphna, pray for all concerned.

    Wherever in the world this couple is located, there are other couples who’ve walked in their shoes willing to help them work through their difficulties, in confidence see here:
    People of other faiths and no faiths do benefit, even tho Catholics and a priest facilitate – its not preachy (nor is it counselling, if there’s a serious issue that needs to be addressed, for the welfare of wee ones address it promptly) – its an opportunity to walk a while longer in hope before walking away without it…
