Prayers for Us (Even When We Won't/Can't Pray for Ourselves)

There may be times when life, sin, and hopelessness conspire against us, and leave us incapable of prayer.  In those times, remember there are many out there (including me) that are praying for you.

Don't believe me?  Consider just two simple prayers that are consistently in heavy rotation:

  • The Chaplet of Divine Mercy - "For the sake of His sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world"
  • The Fatima Prayer - "O my Jesus, forgive us our sins.  Save us from the fires of hell.  Lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of Thy mercy"
These are but two very small examples.  And they're being prayed constantly.  Hence, make no mistake - at our lowest points, there is always someone with your spiritual back.  

And when you rebound from your circumstances, take up these prayers, and return the favor.
