Prayer Request: Esposal House

Our friend Evelyn has asked us to pray for Espousal House, a Christian facility run by the Stigmatine Father and Brothers in Waltham, Massachusetts, offering counseling, retreats, prayer, and kindness to anyone in need of it.

The town’s mayor and school board wish to seize the property (46 acres) under “eminent domain,” a euphemism for strong-arm tactics, so they can, they claim, build a new high school there. The fathers and brothers refuse to sell. So far, the city council has twice voted down the takeover. But Evelyn feels sure the mayor and school committee will keep trying until they get what they want.

O Lord our God, uphold and defend your servants in the loving work they do for Christ’s Kingdom, at Espousal House. Strengthen the resolve of their city council to support them. Be their refuge and strength, and a very present help in time of trouble. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    Dear Father in Heaven, please protect the Espousal House and come to the aid of all who work Your will and strive in Your name. Uphold them in courage and resolve, and aid them in working for the good, for You alone are the source of all good. We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.

    Father, as the forces of darkness work to destroy all that is good, we ask you to please turn it to good for Your Name’s sake and strengthen and uphold all those working to your purposes. We ask it in Jesus’ Precious Name. Amen.
