Prayer to the blessed Virgin

by Esther (Covina, CA)

Oh, most beautiful flower of Mount Carmel. Fruitful Vine, Splendor of Heaven. Blessed Mother of the Son of God. Immaculate Virgin, assist me in my necessity. Oh Star of the Sea, help me and show me you are my Mother. Oh, Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth, I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart to succor me in this necessity. I am deeply struggling to keep my son with me, and wanting to do the best things for him. He will be starting kindergarten soon and I only have 50% custody of him. I am deeply confused about planning for the upcoming school years for him and planning the upcoming years with my ex husband. I would like to keep being involved throughout the week with my son whereas my ex wants to split the week to a 2/5/5/2 schedule. This would mean going 5 days without seeing my son. I am very troubled wtih the thought and have proposed other options, all which my ex will not agree. I want to do what is the best for my son so that he is not exchanged so frequently and so that we have regular contact. Please help me, and guide so make the best decision for my son. Please pray for my ex husband so that he can be filled with your spirit and guide him also to do what is best for our son. There are none that can withstand your power. Ohm Mary concieved without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee. Holy Mary, I place this cause in your hands.

For divorced families with childern, pray for us and our kids. Help us to make the right decisions for them and help us to pray for our ex’s who continue to fight and place the children in the middle.
