Lord, Hear Our Prayers

Please pray for Erika and Darrel's reconciliation and healing relationship so that their love will continue to be strong, to prosper and grow; eliminating selfishness and misunderstanding from their relationship. Hopefully they can love and support each other, May their loyalty for one another remain strong and immutable; always filled with compassion, kindness, forgiveness, patience, wisdom, understanding, mutually open, respect each other and gratitude. Let their love grow each day in an unshakeable union that will shine your light on all who know them. May they lay any and all differences aside and quiet the ego mind that wants to make the other wrong in any way; Darrel to be a loyal man for erika, and erika always be patience. That they're not tempted to turn away from all the trials and tribulations that lie ahead. May they share life's challenges together as a strong, unified and loving couple. May they feel the love and support of all who surround them. Please continue to protect them from negative influences. Please God renew their love for each other every day. May their relationship reflect the light of Jesus to everyone around them. May the Lord bless their relationship and may they always keep him a part of their love for each other.

I recently entered into an engagement with a young lady, and unfortunately, we fell onto some rough times. The engagement is currently called off, but our parish priest wants to see if we can mend it, and still discern if we are to be married to each other. I know God has a plan in all of this, and above all I ask that I may be accepting of his will, regardless of the outcome. Thank you in advance for your prayers! Melvin and Ruby
