  7. Lord Jesus, this morning I come before you to thank you and glorify you for the many blessings you have bestowed on me and my family. Thank you for your love that is surpasses all understanding. I approach your seat of mercy today, presenting my daughter and son to you that you be bring them comfort and consolation. They are going through a very difficult time with the absence of their father who walked out on us and doesnt want anything to do with even the children. They miss him so much, they do not understand and they hurt many of the times wondering when will their dad ever come back. I am lost for words when they are in their deepest moments and my daughter cries endlessly. Lord in Heaven, father of the fatherless, i pray that you may come through for this little ones and truly comfort them, reassure them and be the answers to their everyday questions. May you take away from them any anxiety, self pity, loneliness and instead fill their hearts with the gifts of the holy spirit. May you grant them grace to overcome these huddles in their early and young life. May they always know that you have great plans for them. As they find solace in one another, may you truly bid us with the everlasting love. May they grow to be of service to other men and women and may they come out victoriously amidst the pain and agony. Lord I invite you into their lives, that though challenging raising them alone, that you may give me grace and strength to see them through. Unite us with your everlasting love. May we do well always to honour you and glorify. I offer up our their pain and agony for the glory of your name and for those that mostly need your mercy. May their pain not be in vain but may it bring re-union to other children who are in similar situations that they may experience the joy of both parents. Despite all this Lord, my prayer is that the challenges that they are going through may bring them closer and closer to you Father that they may know you and deepen their personal relationship with you Lord. Forgive my husband Lord for all his sins and faults, may your spirit of wisdom and truth bring him to the realization that he needs to fulfill his obligation as a father to these children. May you see him through in all his activities and give him long life and good health. Teach us Lord to love him even when it is so difficult and even painful. You know our lives and our purpose here on earth and our prayer is that in all this, may you bring us closer and closer to you Father. Mary, pray for us to your son that His favour may be upon these very innocent children and that the will of God upon the lives of these children may be fulfilled. I pray all this in Jesus name.

  9. Good St. Gerard, patron of mothers, assist me in thanking God for the great gift of motherhood. During the months of my waiting, I learned to call upon you and placed the safety of my child and myself under your powerful protection. The great lesson of your trust in God sustained me; your slogan, \"God will provide,\" became my hope and consolation. I thank God for a healthy and normal baby and my own good health. Help me to prize the great treasure of motherhood and obtain for me the grace to raise my child as a child of God.

    In gratitude, I will continue to call upon you and will tell other mothers about their special patron and friend. Amen. FOR ALL MOTHERS!!!

  11. A friend of my mother\'s has a child. The child\'s father is the worst human being on Earth! Unfortunately, he also has money and took her to court repeatedly until he finally won custody of the child. He is an abusive person. He never wanted her to have the child in the first place, he wanted her to have an abortion, which she refused. He doesn\'t really want the child now - he just wanted to hurt her. She and the child are devastated and the child is now failing in school. Reports to the police and counselors in the school are ignored - everyone does not want to get involved. He is mistreating both her and the child and they are terrified of him. I beg of you all to pray for justice for Charlie!

We are really having a difficult time right now as a couple and as individuals. Thank you. We both know that this is only going to be done through a miracle from God.
