Finances - for security


Please pray for my husband and our finances. My husband is a good man and a hard worker, but he owns his own business and is constantly undercutting himself and doing favors - which is nice, but that is making it hard to pay the bills (we live quite conservatively). I work too - and my savings is being drained (not much left in there) and I am starting to feel like we’re living on the edge and I don’t like that. We have a 2 year old child, and I am just asking for help with finances for the security and wellbeing of our family. Thanks so much for all your prayers!


Dear God, I have no idea where I am going.
I do not see the road ahead of me.
I cannot know for certain where it will end.

Nor do I really know myself,
and the fact that I think that I am following Your will
does not mean that I am actually doing so.

But I believe this:
I believe that the desire to please You does in fact please You.
I hope I have that desire in everything I do.
I hope I never persist in anything apart from that desire.
And I know that if I do this, You will lead me by the right road,
though I may know nothing about it at the time.

Therefore I will trust You always,
for though I may be lost,
I will not be afraid,
because I know You will never leave me to face my troubles all alone.


I will pray that God helps you and your husband


Hail Mary,
full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb,
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.


Thank you all for your prayers!

Kilo, what a beautiful prayer, I am printing it out to keep!

Thanks, thanks, thanks and God bless you all!
