Please pray with me….

Please pray for a very special friend IRL, Jennifer who just had a miscarriage. In my eyes she is a wonderful wife and mother of 6 and does an outstanding job giving herself to everyone who needs her. She needs our prayers, please take a moment and say a prayer for her! 

I came across this prayer on EWTN’s site. It helped me during my time of grief and wanted to share it with you all. While checking in on Ruth’s blog, I saw she had posted this prayer as well. Great minds think alike!! It really helps me see why the miscarriages I had was such a loss for me and a blessing for the child, and that helps with the pain, because every mother only wants what is best for our children. And of coarse our Father knows what is best for us all, doesn’t he.

Here is the prayer-

My Lord, the baby is dead!

 Why, my Lord—dare I ask why? It will not hear the whisper of the wind or see the beauty of its parents’ face—it will not see the beauty of Your creation or the flame of a sunrise. Why, my Lord?

 “Why, My child—do you ask ‘why’? Well, I will tell you why.

 You see, the child lives. Instead of the wind he hears the sound of angels singing before My throne. Instead of the beauty that passes he sees everlasting Beauty—he sees My face. He was created and lived a short time so the image of his parents imprinted on his face may stand before Me as their personal intercessor. He knows secrets of heaven unknown to men on earth. He laughs with a special joy that only the innocent possess. My ways are not the ways of man. I create for My Kingdom and each creature fills a place in that Kingdom that could not be filled by another. He was created for My joy and his parents’ merits. He has never seen pain or sin. He has never felt hunger or pain. I breathed a soul into a seed, made it grow and called it forth.”

 I am humbled before you, my Lord, for questioning Your wisdom, goodness, and love. I speak as a fool—forgive me. I acknowledge Your sovereign rights over life and death. I thank You for the life that began for so short a time to enjoy so long an Eternity.                                                                                              —  Mother M.

Say a prayer for expectant mother’s today, especially for a good friend of mine.

Prayer for Expectant Mothers:
Almighty and everlasting God, through the power of the Holy Spirit, you prepared the body of the Virgin Mary to be a worthy dwelling place of your divine son. You sanctified St. John the Baptist, while still in his mother’s womb. Listen now to my prayer. Through the intercession of St. Gerard, watch over (name) child and me; protect them at the time of delivery. May (name) child receive the saving graces of Baptism, lead a Christian life, and, together with all the members of their family, attain everlasting happiness in heaven. Amen.

 I love the excerpts from Catholic Culture today (as always)

If Christ is growing in us, if we are at peace, recollected, because we know that however insignificant our life seems to be, from it He is forming Himself; if we go with eager wills, “in haste,” to wherever our circumstances compel us, because we believe that He desires to be in that place, we shall find that we are driven more and more to act on the impulse of His love.

And the answer we shall get from others to those impulses will be an awakening into life, or the leap into joy of the already wakened life within them.

Please pray for the soul of Daniel. He was my husband’s 24 yr old cousin who was found beat to death at his home. The only details we have so far is that a baseball bat was used as the weapon and the killer is in custody. Daniel met with a young man that he was going to sell his vehicle to. Daniel decided not to sell the vehicle to him and that is when it happened. No other details are known.Please pray for Daniel’s father also, he has not been found to be notified of this tragic news. My husband’s aunt, Rochelle was close to them and is having a hard time with, as well as my husband’s mother and all the siblings and family.

Please, if you can say the Divine Mercy Chaplet for Daniel. If you do not have that much time to devote, please say this prayer from the Divine Mercy. Please ask our Lord to apply your intentions to Daniel’s hour of death.
Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world. For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
Also, nothing can take away the pain out of such a terrible tragedy. We ask God’s will to be done and if good can come of this, to give grace to all who need it to serve his Holy Will. Please pray for the soul of the man who took Daniel’s life. If there can be a conversion sometime in this man’s life, than that would be Daniel’s victory over satan. For satan to win the soul of a sinner is a tragedy for our Lord also, if our prayers can defeat the works of satan then it can be done in Daniel’s name and give our Lord his victory.

St. Catherine of Sienna, this is your feast day. Please pray for Daniel and his family. Mother Mary, please ask your son to comfort this family, and pray for Daniel.

St. Rita of Cascia, patron saint of the impossible, please pray for the man who took Daniel’s life.
