Dear Lord, please forgive me for letting go of my faith. Please forgive me for all of the bad things I have done as you watched in disappointment. Please forgive me for not fighting the unhappiness that has entered my house.
Lord, I am so scared of what may happen to my family. My parents are working so hard – overworking themselves – to take care of 4 other people. Please help us appreciate what they are doing for us. My sister is being so brave, thank you for giving her the strength to carry on and take care of her child. Please continue to give her the strength that she needs to live her life and be happy. Please don’t let her husband take away her spirit or hurt their child. Please do not let my sister or her child become victims of abuse. I am scared of what he may do to them. Please help him to be better and to take care of his wife and child. Please help my family to get along with each other, care for each other, protect each other, and most of all to love each other. Please help us to be better people who love each other without expecting anything else in return.
Please give me strength and help me to be a better daughter, sister, friend, and Catholic. Please help my family through these dark times. Please do not let anyone get hurt physically or emotionally. Please protect us all.
