Urgent Prayer Request

A reader writes…

My oldest friend (coincidentally named Mark) is unemployed, being evicted, and suicidal.

Father, hear our prayer that you intervene and call him to choose life and hope.  Help him find work, a place to stay, and friends who can help him through this momentary crisis.  Mother Mary and St. Joseph, pray for him.  We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen!

    St. Michael, we ask you to turn evil influences away from Mark as we pray, with you, for him. Satan is the Lord of Despair, and we are confident that you will pray for Mark and be a shield for him against evil.

    St. Joseph, beloved foster father of Our Lord and patron saint of our Pontifex Emeritus, pray for Mark as he seeks employment and a safe place to live. Entreat your foster son, Our Lord, to send His peace to mark during this time of great need.

    Blessed Mother Mary, you intercede for us all in our times of need. We humbly entreat you to place all of Mark’s needs and intentions at the feet of Our Lord, your beloved Son, and to ask Jesus to be present to Mark at this difficult time, and to provide Mark with the spiritual and material comfort he so desperately needs.

    Heavenly Father, we beg you to care for your child on Earth, Mark, and to provide for his immediate needs. May we, the people who pray for Mark and the people who meet Mark each day, be Your instruments of help and hope.

    We make our prayer through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.

    In addition to prayer, if it has not already been done, calling 911 or the local mental health authorities should probably at least be considered. Sometimes a brief hospital and the appropriate interventions can make a huge difference.
