will save your family. Offer all the problems to Jesus and ask him to interact
in your life.
Differences between husband and wife, the lack of love, being without children,
waywardness of children, bad habits of children, members of family and spouse,
alcoholism, debts, joblessness, homelessness, envy and enmity of the neighbors,
hindrances to marriage, lack of prayer, divorce, lack of mutual respect,
squandering, serious diseases, obstacles in all matters and so on - must be
surrendered to Jesus. Invite Jesus into your life and family problems. The one
who solved the problems of many a thousand will surely solve yours too.
Accept your life partner as a God-given gift. (Tobit6: 17).
Take decision only through mutual consultation and sharing.
Appreciate and encourage your life partner. Do not give much correction.
Instead, pray for change. The more you give correction, the more the person will
Love your wife as yourself. (Eph.5: 28/Col.3: 19). Respect your husband. (Eph.5:
24/ Eph.5: 21)
Unconditional forgiveness and unlimited prayers will solve all your family
problems. "Try to forgive seventy times seven" (Matt.18: 21), i.e., unlimitedly.
Have family prayer everyday. "The family that prays together stays together."
Rosary or Divine Mercy Chaplet with special intentions before every decade are
good family prayers.
Share your burdens and housework with each other. Carrying the burdens each
other and fulfill the law of the Lord (Gal.6:2).
Do not neglect the needs of the family members. (1Timothy5:8).
Do not deny the conjugal right of the life partner even though you do not want
it. (1Cor.7: 4).
Prayer to receive Blessings
in a Family
Jesus, do a miracle in our family as you had done a miracle at Cana to save a
marriage. Without a miracle, our marriage will not be saved; will not be
blessed. So, Lord, we surrender all our family problems to you, come and heal
us. O Jesus send your Holy Spirit upon our household and transform us into your
likeness and image that we lost by committing sin. Help us Lord, to forgive each
other unconditionally. Help us to pray together, to glorify your holy name in
(After this do Divine Mercy Chaplet)
The Chaplet of The Divine Mercy

"Even the most hardened sinner, if he recites this
chaplet even once, will receive grace from My infinite Mercy."

trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into
temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus
Christ, His only Son, our Lord. Who was conceived by the power of the Holy
Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified,
died, and was buried. He descended into the dead. One the third day He rose
again. He Ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the
Holy Catholic Church, the communion of the saints, the forgiveness of sins, the
resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

not despair nor become despondent but with great confidence submit ourselves to
Your Holy Will, which is Love and Mercy itself. Amen.
