Prayer for a Troubled Marriage
Dear Jesus, Lover of My Soul, give me the grace to receive your love and let it be enough
Mother Mary, show me your way of dignity, honor and self-respect
Holy Trinity, help me to see my spouse the way that God sees him/her and give me a vision of compassion and a measure of peace in this troubled time.
Lord, help me to let go of all of the deep resentments, bitterness, hurt and disappointments that have driven a wedge in my marriage and hardened my heart.
Give me the courage to right what is wrong and face the truth of my own contribution to this present pain.
Lord, I need your grace, I need your help, and I need your mercy to enable me to completely trust and hope in you to restore my marriage
Most of all, sweet Jesus... let your love be enough right now to carry me as I cooperate with your grace to bring healing and holiness to my marriage.
Tears of Blood and Water flow...
Father we pray Jesus we pray Holy Spirit we pray
for the souls of the abortionists, their helpers, those connected with the work and those being "treated" with abortions and contraception.
Oh my Jesus-- the babies come directly back to You as You take back the breath of the Innocents into Your loving arms
but those who slaughter them will be lost souls-- abandoning You in Your agony
Holy Spirit-- pierce the flesh of their hearts
shred the veil of lies that keeps them in the darknes of their ways
Disturb and confuse them, confound their efforts and lead them by Your mercy
back to LIFE.
Strip them of their defenses and remove the scales from their eyes so that they might see
the evil of what they are doing, repent and return to You and Your ways of
love, dignity and life.
Sweet Jesus, Lover and Author of Life, we beg this in Your Holy and Precious Name . Amen.
Mother Mary, pray for us.
|O Christ Jesus,when all is darkness|
and we feel our weakness and helplessness,
give us the sense of Your presence,
Your love, and Your strength.
Help us to have perfect trust
in Your protecting love
and strengthening power,
so that nothing may frighten or worry us,
for, living close to You,
we shall see Your hand,
Your purpose, Your will through all things.
By Saint Ignatius of Loyola

Oh My God, Trinity whom I adore, help me to forget myself entirely that I may be established in you as still and as peaceful as if my soul were already in eternity. May nothing rrouble my peace or make me leave you, Oh my unchanging one, but may each minute carry me further into the depths of your mystery. Give peace to my soul; make it your heaven, your beloved dwelling and your resting place. May I never leave you there alone but be wholly present, my faith wholly vigilant, wholly adoring, and wholly surrendered to your creative action. Amen
COME HOLY SPIRIT -- FILL MY HEART
ILLUMINATE MY MIND AND GIVE ME THE GRACE
TO RECEIVE YOUR REVELATIONS FOR MY LIFE.
GIVE ME EARS TO HEAR YOUR VOICE,
EYES TO SEE YOUR TRUTH
AND HELP ME TO WALK IN YOUR WISDOM
ALL THE DAYS OF MY LIFE. AMEN.
