Prayers for Different States of Life

Maria Smith's picture

Christians are called to pray always. Sometimes this is not an easy thing to do, especially when we are busy with work, chores, children, etc. This section makes use of different state of people's lives.

This area can include prayers for ministers, fathers, mothers, law enforcers, doctors. When children start the school year, pray for them and their year ahead, pray for the unemployed, travelers, the elderly.

It is also a area to pray if you are in a bad mood or frame of mind, are moving or praying before a trip, praying when in doubt of something or for discernment.

I understand...

Dear Carol-

Yes, it is that way, especially when the youngest goes off. We are filled with joy that they are going forward but we are sad because of our separation and their independance beginning... It happens to all of us. However, what a satisfying feeling to see that your children are grown, responsible and contributing to the community. I am so proud and thank God so much for the care He has given my kids (now 36, 31, and 26). It is a great blessing.

My prayer for you and your child:

Heavenly Father:

We thank you for the children that you have entrusted to us.
We want to cooperate with you fully in helping them grow into free and responsible persons and mature in the faith received at baptism.

Grant Carol the grace to be able to guide her child in the practice of virtue and the way of Your commandments-
by the good example of our lives, and by the loving observance of Your laws. Give her strength to handle the separation of her child and fill her with abundant joy.

Most of all, however, guide him with Your Spirit so that he may know the vocation you will for him and be open to genuine self-giving and true Christian love.

We pray in Jesus' Holy Name. Amen

Yours in Christ,
