You guys responded so generously when I first posted this prayer request for a reader whose marriage is in serious trouble. I just received this email:
Would you please ask your readers to pray for me Monday morning? My estranged husband and I are seeing a marriage counselor at 10 am est. We are meeting to discuss reconciliation and whether it is possible that we can overcome our obstacles (my husband is doubtful). Please pray that truth, mercy, and love will predominate!
Let’s pray a memorare right now for them.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
