Prayer is always answered, but sometimes the answer is “no” or “not yet”, in which case go to HIS Mother, who always has mercy and grace for the children. Pray a rosary daily or two or three depending upon you schedule, and pray it with sincerity and meditation.
HAIL MARY - a greeting in Marys day that was reserved for royalty, but the angle used it to greet Mary.
FULL OF GRACE - the church recognizes that Mary is the “cup” through which GOD dispenses HIS grace to the world. Call on Her for GOD grace upon you.
THE LORD IS WITH THEE - Mary constantly has the presence and ear of GOD. Who can be a better source to call for help the Her.
BLESSED ARE THOU AMONGST WOMEN - She and she alone has been chosen by GOD to grant us HIS grace.
AND BLESSED IS THE FRUIT OF THY WOMB JESUS - She carried GOD within Her, She is blessed and sacred and Holy. Go to Her and call upon Her.
HOLY MARY MOTHER OF GOD - how many times when praying the rosary do we forget in our haste that we are “talking to the MOTHER OF GOD”, and She has the grace and the power and mercy to request from Her SON “anything”.
PRAY FOR US SINNERS NOW AND AT THE HOUR OF OUR DEATH - If you establish a relationship with Mary through the rosary, it last past this time of life on earth, it carries through to your judgement day. Call on Her for help.
And after the Rosary, begin praying the Psalms. Start with the first and each day pray another until you find the one that speaks to your heart, then memorize it and pray it every day for comfort. For me that would be the 27th Psalm, for you it might be another, but they are deep and rich in expressing how lives today and our pain and our need for help and love and protection. Read them slowly and like the Rosary, meditate on the meaning of the words you pray - the meditation will bring great relief.
Finally, one very important petition for your Rosary. Ask for the grace you need to get through the day, but that which you do not have, and which you do not know what is missing. Sounds a little off, but after I heard this and began to request the same, my days have become calmer and easier at times. Whatever was missing was supplied and I noticed.
