  24. Some reading from the divine office which is nice to read and relevant in this context

    Ps. 30……….To you, Lord, I cried,
    to my God I made appeal:
    The Lord listened and had pity. The Lord came to my help.
    For me you have changed my mourning into dancing,
    you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy.
    So my soul sings psalms to you unceasingly.
    O Lord my God, I will thank you for ever. Ps. 32 ….I will instruct you and teach you
    the way you should go;
    I will give you counsel
    with my eye upon you.
    Ps. 16…..
    O Lord, it is you who are my portion and cup;
    it is you yourself who are my prize.
    The lot marked out for me is my delight:
    welcome indeed the heritage that falls to me!

    I will bless the Lord who gives me counsel,
    who even at night directs my heart.
    I keep the Lord ever in my sight:
    since he is at my right hand, I shall stand firm.

    And so my heart rejoices, my soul is glad;
    even my body shall rest in safety.
    For you will not leave my soul among the dead,
    nor let your beloved know decay.

    You will show me the path of life,
    the fullness of joy in your presence,
    at your right hand happiness for ever.

    Glory to the Father, and to the Son,
    and to the Holy Spirit:

  49. I pray for ALL marriages…that couples will pray for humility, courage, patience and deeper faith, and turn to the sacraments and Our Blessed Mother for strength and healing, and to persevere in the difficult times vs. getting divorced, so they can do God’s holy will.

    I pray baptized or confirmed Catholics & Christians who are in invalid marriages will go through the process to have their marriages blessed in the Catholic Church.
    Specifically: Jeff & Amanda, Jan & Paul, Marcie & Rich, Mary & Steve, Rick & Sue, Steve & Karen, Mark & Jeannine, Brian & Janet, Bob & Dana, Duane & Erika, Dave & Rhonda.

    I pray we seek the strength of St. Joseph, St. Rita, St. Thomas More and St. John Fisher to seek holiness through our marriages and help heal this broken world.

    I pray that Catholics and other Christians who are divorced will remain single or return to their marriage covenant and not look to the worlds’ way of divorce & marriage.

    I pray that couples will desire to see God’s love and truth in the evils and deceit of contraception, sterilization and in-vitro vertilization.

    I pray for peace, healing & reconcilliation in ALL marriages and families, but specifically for: Rick & Cindy, Carol & Randy, Tricia & Jerry, Bob & Lynne, Lucy & Jim, Teresa & Arnie, Brian & Bonnie…and that the Lord shows His glory through each of them.

    I pray that any couples who were married in the Catholic Church and left it, will return: Specifically: Ann Marie & David, Michael & Amy, Dan & Eileen, Rich & Liz, Ron & Theresa, George & Cindy…and all the others.

    I pray for children who are affected by broken or struggling marriages – that the Lord places holy people in their lives to show them His love, and that their parents seek what is best for their children…to seek God’s will and not their own to keep the family together and desire to truly know and live the TRUE Catholic faith. Specifically: Melissa, Alec, Sara, Michael, Ryan, Kristen, Becky, Lindsay, Logan, Geoff, Leah, Jenny, Luke, Carolyn, David, Jenny, Jason…ALL others.

    I pray that priests will speak the truth about contraception, sacrifice, confession, and the sacrament of marriage to couples who are seeking to be married. I pray for all upcoming marriages, that couples will be obedient to their vows, open to life and do God’s holy will, so they can be a blessing to the world! Specifically: Vanessa & Danny

    I pray that people who struggle with same-sex attraction will first see themselves as children of God made in His image vs. being identified by their sexual desires. I also pray they thirst to seek the Lord’s healing for their cross and live chaste lives as we are each called to in our state in life. Specifically: Geoff, John, Michele, Sonny, Spencer, Frank, Tracy, Ellen, Rosie, Merideth, all members of COURAGE and family of ENCOURAGE, and ALL others…I pray that marriage legally stays between one man and one woman in America and around the world.

    I pray for adult children who were affected by divorce, that they would seek Christs’ healing through His Church and see the beauty of marriage as God designed it.

    I pray for unity amongst ALL Christians. Christ has one bride – the Catholic Church, and I pray ALL baptized return so we can be one as God intended.

    I plead the Precious Blood of Jesus over all these prayers and place them in the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

  50. Lord I pray for healing and blessing my family and all those who have asked for my prayers. Jesus by your mother’s prayers, heal me in my body and mind. Bless all the families with your peace. And teach us to love your Father

    • Hi Vini,

      I can emphatise with you that you are going through a rough time. And that you wish things will go back to before. However, you may see in time – if you actually let God step into your heart and heal you, that it is fortuitous that this marriage did not/ will not take place after all.

      Father God only wants the very best for you. You may be feeling a lot of pain and suffering (e.g. loss of dreams, loss of friendship and perhaps embarrassment) and feel that this cannot be right. Nevertheless, you will find, if you search into your heart, that it may be that you do not really love “this guy” and that God wants you to first love yourself and know what your vocation might be.

      Marriage is a beginning of a new life, and not the end or solution to relationship problems. Things are shown to be terribly broken even before you’ve both started – a relationship like that, will need more than 1 miracle to maintain for the rest of your life. Do not put your Lord God to the test.

      Go for Christopher West’s sessions on Theology of the Body – and learn more about what relationships means for Catholics. God bless.

  60. May God pour out his Grace to all who will or who have marrie this year.

    I pray for God to pour out his Grace so that all unmarried children and grandchildren will find good and faithful Catholic spouses.

    For those who are married, I pray for their marriages to be sanctified in God’s grace through the practice of their Catholic faith.

    I pray for all families everywhere that Our dear Heavenly Father will heal broken relationships and call all family members to His Holy Will so that His Peace will reign in all homes.

  61. For me and the wife of Divine Will for me in this life. For our strength and courage and perseverance until we can sacramentally regularize our marriage within Holy Church. For our marriage to be truly fruitful in our LORD’s Divine Will. And lastly for all past, present, and future marriages within my entire family.

  62. I pray that the Lord should touch my fiance’s heart and make him propose to me soon so that we can get married as people are making jest of me and am not getting younger. Also, I ask the good Lord to keep him faithful to me. Holy Mary,pls intercede for me, so that I can have a good family of mine.
    Jesus, I trust in You!

    • The Lord will not make fiance propose to you. That is your fiance’s decision. You should always pray for God’s will to be done. This is why it is important to make every decision with God. That includes whom to marry. It is either a yes or no from God long before you get involved with the person. Ask God if this is whom he wants for you. Listen to the voice of God. “Speak Lord, your servant is listening.”

  63. Praying that every marriage stays intact and grows stronger with each passing day in love, happiness and harmony. I especially pray for those marriages, such as my own, on brink of divorce or separation to be reconciled in Jesus’ name. Amen

    Father God You have the power and authority on earth as you do in Heaven to resurrect the deadest of marriages, I pray to you Lord to resurrect, restore and reconcile them according to Your Will. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

    Blessing to you Lord, God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting. Amen.Amen.

    • Have faith Sylvia, read The Valley of Dry Bones (Ezekiel 37:1-14) – and rejoice in the Lord’s mercy and compassion!

    • Hello Sylvia, I am praying for your marriage. I know by the grace of God you will come out of this closer as a couple. My sister went through a very difficult situation in her marriage and has perservered and prayed constantly and she has grown as well as her marriage. It was real bleak for a while but now with the help of God’s grace they can proudly say they have been married for 30 years. Give it all to God the hardest thing is to not control the situation. Have faith. Peace. Fran

  64. Praying that every marriage stays intact and grows stronger each passing day in love, happiness and harmony. I especially pray for those marriages, such as my own, on brink of divorce or separation to be reconciled in Jesus’ name. Amen

    Father God You have the power and authority on earth as you do in Heaven to resurrect the deadest of marriages, I pray to you Lord to resurrect, restore reconcile them according to Your Will. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

    Blessing to you Lord, God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting. Amen.Amen.

    • Slyvia, God hates divorce as it is clearly stated in the book of Malachi 2:16, thus it is quite clear that God does not intend divorce in your marriage. Submit to your husband no matter how difficult things are, thank Jesus even in the most difficult times of your marriage. Call upon Him and He will answer you. As you pray the novena for the next nine days, combine it with this verses from the book of Isaiah 45:2-3, which says, ” I will go before you and level the mountains, I will break down gates of bronze and cut thorugh bars of iron. I will give you the trasures of darkness, riches stored in secret place, so that you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel who summons you by name”. These verses are my testimony to so many issues that God has helped me overcome. I will be praying for you during the novena and I believe you will have a wonderful testimony.

      God bless you.

  65. please let my diagnosis not be leukemia or lymphoma or some type of cancer. I want to live long enough to take care of my children, who are only 7 and 5 years old. I accept your will what ever the outcome, but please find someone to take care of my children is something should happen to me.

    • Jesus, we agree together with this sister in prayer, your unchanging word promises that you are there in our midst when we agree together in prayer, Lord forgive our sins, help us to commit our new lives to you and put you in first place. Lord help us to bear fruit for you when you heal us hearing the prayers of your mother.
