St. Raymond Nonnatus Prayer for Divorced Families
Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of life and of the love you give us daily. Thank you for all families both inside and outside the Church. Lord, we ask for your healing presence for divorced Catholics in the Church, their children, and extended families. We ask for your presence in the pain they experience in the process of divorce. We thank you for your love, even in very difficult times. We know your love can and will overcome all the difficulties of life. We pray for all families in the Church and in the world to stay strong with the help of the Holy Spirit We also pray to your Mother for her assistance and guidance and to of all of the Angels and Saints. We especially ask for the intercession of St. Raymond Nonnatus, our patron. We pray for all people of faith in danger of losing their faith in Christ and His Church. In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
