for God to give me hope and restore joy

Please ask Jesus to restore my joy and give me hope in suffering.

You have my prayers… I am praying for hope in my own situation… God’s Will be done

Pray The Holy Cloak of St Joseph

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

Saint Faustina,
You told us that your mission
would continue after your death
and that you would not forget us.

Our Lord also granted you a great privilege
telling you to "distribute graces as you will,
to whom you will, and when you will”.

Relying on this, we ask your
intercession for the graces we need,
especially for our particular intentions.

Help us, above all, to trust in Jesus
as you did and thus glorify His mercy
every moment of our lives.

Amen.

TrueFaithSeeker,
I just found this prayer that may help you in your journey:

[INDENT]Prayer When Feeling Low

Loving Lord Jesus,
Whose hands are underneath our lowest feelings to support us as we rest in You.
Hold me in this dark place and sustain my life with Your hope.
Let the light of Your love warm my heart, and Your Holy Spirit, the Comforter, be with me to lift me up.
Amen.
[/INDENT]

Memorare (Prayer to Our Lady)
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen

Forgive us our sins,
save us from the fires of Hell
lead all souls to Heaven
especially those most in need of thy mercy.
