R. Snyder wrote:

Hi, guys —

At the beginning of a typical Mass, we normally say the Penitential Act:

I confess to almighty God, and to you, my brothers and sisters, that I have greatly sinned, through my thoughts and in my words, in what I have done, and in what I have failed to do; through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault; therefore I ask the Blessed Mary ever-Virgin, all the Angels and Saints, and you, my brothers and sisters, to PRAY for me to the Lord our God.

I'd like to pray for my brothers and sisters.

  • What prayer should I use?

Thank You,

R. Snyder
  { If I want to start praying for my brothers and sisters, other than this prayer, what prayer should I use? }

Eric replied:

Dear R. Snyder,

You can pray however you want. You can pray the Rosary, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy with Novena, or make up your own prayer, for example:

"Lord, I bring before you all my brothers and sisters in Christ and ask you to forgive them of their sins and bring them to everlasting life."
