Praying for the Families of Divorce



Family: The Basic Cell of Society

Catholic tradition and teaching firmly upholds the great importance and significance of the family as the “basic unit of society”. The family is where we learn to live and to love. Our Lord is with the family, for it is with the family that the whole of society is either strengthened or weakened.

During his visit to the United States in 2015, our Holy Father spoke on behalf of the family:

“It is worthwhile to live as a family, that a society grows strong, grows in goodness, grows in beauty and truly grows if I am build on the foundation of the family”.

The family is more important to the salvation of the world than we can imagine. Souls are created by God through the unit of the family. We must always keep this fact close to our hearts.

When Divorce Enters the Picture

Catechizing newly married couples is of utmost importance. They must be taught the value of the lifelong relationship they have with each other and with Jesus. Troubles come to every relationship, but there is a great need for the proper catechesis of Catholic men and women.  The best teacher is the good examples of faithful Catholics who have committed themselves to the Sacrament of Matrimony. Combined with good teaching through the Church, newly married or “pre-Cana” couples can discover the beauty and importance of taking their marriage vows seriously, as a life-ling commitment.

Our prayers for all separated and divorced families and those seeking annulments are of utmost importance. The salvation of all souls and the care of families is dependent upon lifting up those wounded by divorce in prayer.

Love and Faith

“Love is shown by the little things, by attention to small daily signs which make us feel at home. Faith grows when it is lives and shaped by love. That is why our families, our homes, are true domestic churches. They are the right place for faith to become life, and life to grow in faith.”-Pope Francis, World Meeting of Families.

A family of divorce needs healing and our prayers. We can be the face of the Church to those feeling abandoned. Organizations exist to help the divorced and separated. One is the St. Raymond Nonnatus Foundation, through the Mercedarian Religious Order. Being the new director for the foundation is an honor for me. Please join me in prayer for this new foundation.  Find us at


Lord, thank you for the gift of all families. We pray for mothers, fathers and children. We prayer for the strength and love of the family in our society at this present time. Help us to minister and reach out to those affected by divorce through the love of your Son, His Mother and all the angels and saints. Thank you Lord for helping us to make a difference in our world by making a home for all families in the Church. Amen.

  1. I never believed in love prayer or magic until i met this (powerful Pastor Ikaken) once when i went to Africa in February this year on a business summit. I meant a man who’s name is (Pastor Ikaken) he is really powerful and could help (Pastor Ikaken) to bring back one’s gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money prayers or for a good job or luck prayer.I’m now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 3 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 3 years. I really loved him, but his mother was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this (Pastor Ikaken), i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided, skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 7 days when i returned to Los Angeles, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn’t believe it cos the pastor. ikaken only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is( . You can write him of whatsapp+233596908113
