I pray for Mark to have an ever-increasing hunger for more of You. May Mark long for Your presence -- long to
spend time with You in prayer, praise and worship. Give Mark a desire for the truth of Your Word and a love for Your laws
and Your ways.
Teach Mark to live by faith and be led by the Holy Spirit, having an availability to do what You tell him to do.
Please also send the Holy Spirit to help me Michele Glance Rooney and his father Brock to be outstanding parents to Mark.
May Mark be so aware of the fullness of Your Holy Spirit in him that when he is depleted in any way he will immediately
run to You to be renewed and refreshed. May a deep reverence and love for You and Your ways color everything he does
and every choice Mark makes.
I fervently, valiantly pray that Mark will be reliable, dependable, responsible, compassionate, sensitive, loving
and giving to others. I pray that Mark will have a teachable and submissive spirit that says "yes" to the things of God and
"no" to the things of materialism and the world. Strengthen Mark to stand strong in his convictions.
I pray that Mark will always desire to be an active member of a Catholic Christian church that is alive to the
truth of Your Word and the power of Holy Spirit led worship, prayer and teaching. May Mark gain great spiritual insights at
Mass at Holy Name Catholic Church, at St. Elizabeth Catholic Church and at any church he may attend while on vacation or visiting
As my wonderful son Mark learns to read Your Holy Word, write Your law in his mind and on His heart so that he
always walks with a confident assurance of the righteousness of Your commands. As Mark learns to pray, may he also learn to
listen for your voice. I pray that Mark's relationship with You, God, will always be strong. May there always be a Holy Spirit
fire in Mark's heart and an unwavering desire for the things of God.
And also, dearest God, please send the Holy Spirit to help me be a devoted and loving mother to my wonderful son
