Prayer Request

A reader asks for prayers for a rocky marriage and for wisdom and guidance on how to keep the children safe and heal the relationship.

Father, hear our prayer that your perfect will be done here.  Mother Mary and St. Joseph, pray for this family that they would grow in love, healing, and friendship.  We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen!

What Are Your Thoughts?leave a comment
  • On the prayers: most definitely.

    On the other request, I’m hesitant to post this here, but what the heck, I’ll do it anyway. Throw it away if you don’t like it, it doesn’t resonate with the situation — whatever. Posting the link does not imply endorsement the content, comboxes tend to be very NSFW, etc, but there are some interesting perspectives out there on Christian marriage that I think cannot be discounted. That particular one is a five-post series that might help identify what is going wrong.

    In general I suspect that one should read up on what marriage counselors say, what self-help books say, what Oprah says, what evangelical pastors say, collect all that advice together, and very strongly consider doing the opposite.

    My sister Elaine suffers from Lupus. She also has a pocket in esophagus that suddenly had become larger and painful. She has has 9 surgeries in 24 months. She even had to learn to walk after suffering paralysis from back surgery. She is without hope and in despair. She refuses to go back to the surgeon. Please pray for healing for Elaine and wisdom.
