The Connecticut Catholic Men’s Conference: A Prayer For Inner Healing

The Connecticut Catholic Men’s Conference:  A Prayer For Inner Healing

At the 2018 Connecticut Catholic Men’s Conference, the featured speaker was Bob Kroll of With All Your Heart Ministry (www.withallyourheart.org). Bob talked about the Father Wound and the struggle men have to overcome the hurts that our fathers leave in our lives. At the end of his presentation, he and the men prayed the Prayer for Inner Healing. That prayer led to deeper sharing among the men following the talk. This is the power and presence of the Holy Spirit that lives and moves among the men at the conference.



Loving Father, I come trusting in Your great love for me and believing that only You know what is best for me. I want to be healed.
I come to You now to ask that You enter my heart and heal all my wounded emotions.
Bring Your healing love into every corner of my heart and release all the buried negative emotions inside that have not been resolved and continue to cause me anguish.
Heal all shame and despair and feelings of abandonment and rejection. Heal all feelings of anger and hatred resentment and bitterness.
Father, I choose to forgive those who have wounded me. Grant me the grace where I struggle to forgive. I ask you to bless my earthly father and all those who have hurt me in the past.
As You release from me all these painful emotions, fill all the empty spaces with Your love, Your peace, Your joy and the powerful presence of Your Holy Spirit. After I have been healed, may my life be a witness to Your power and glory so that I may reach out to others, too.
I ask all of this in the name of Your Beloved Son, Jesus.  Amen.

The theme for this year’s conference, on Oct. 19, is “Forge Your Path to Holiness.” The speakers include Fr. John Bartunek, Dan Burke, Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers and Bishop Juan Miguel Betancourt, SEMV. We’ll also hear from Most Reverend Leonard Blair, S.T.B., Archbishop of Hartford, and Father James Sullivan, conference chaplain. The conference promises to be a great time of fellowship, learning and worship. There will be opportunities for Eucharistic Adoration and Confession, as well as a closing Mass at the end. We hope to see you there (www.ctcatholicmen.org)
