Prayer to St. Helen (divorcees)

St. Helen stained glass - St. Joseph's Catholic Church, Central City, KY

O holy and blessed St. Helen, you know well what it’s like to be a divorcee.   

You felt the pain of betrayal and rejection, sadness over your marriage ending, anxiety for your children’s welfare and stability, and hurt that another woman replaced you.  

You know what it’s like to rebuild your life alone and to co-parent children.

Please pray for (name person) and all who are divorced or are going through divorce.

Pray, dear saint, that they can let go of all resentment, anger, guilt and fear and trust in the Lord as you did and find peace for their weary hearts, minds and souls.

Pray also that they can forgive and have the grace, courage, and strength to move forward with their lives in ways that are healthy, positive and life giving.

Thank you, St. Helen, for your prayers and intercession for (name person) and all struggling with divorce and its effects.

I truly believe that you are with them, praying for them, and asking God’s choicest blessings upon them.   Amen.
