Prayers requested for violence victims
« on: April 09, 2011, 03:13:25 AM »
I have found people here to be very compassionate.  Please pray for a young woman in my immediate sphere - her name is Christina and her son is 3 years old, named Leo.  They are Roman Catholic, quite devout.

Christina is a victim of domestic violence and has been wrongfully accused of many things.  Her son has been traumatized by witnessing his fathers violence toward his mother and experiencing violent outbursts himself.  Christina and Leo are attempting to rebuild their lives, through devotion to the Mother of God, and regular church attendance, as well as counseling for themselves through their parish priest and also secular resources in the community. 

They are facing a secular system that not only rejects God, but often makes horrendous and egregious errors in judgment.  Please pray for them both: for their safety, for their legal problems and for their salvation, that they will "endure to the end" and become closer to God, and the Theotokos, that they will be successful in starting new lives without violence, and that wrongful and unjust actions by the system will be set right. 

Glory to God in his saints and may they all pray for us, and for Christina and Leo.

Holy Mother of God, Beautiful Theotokos please pray for and protect this young woman and her child.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, have mercy on this young woman and her child.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
