Getting frustrated everyday, needing prayers


As many of you know my situation, living in a seperate state from my pregnant wife and 3 kids due to relocation for work, I cannot help but get increasingly frustrated and hurt everyday.

I know that my wife has been the strongest person in this entire situation. This is ** so much ** harder on her than it is on me. I just wish that there was something that I can do, but we cannot make it without a job (income) and health insurance.

I am putting in a ton of applications and am not getting a lot of feedback for jobs in MO where we live. It is hard to do since I live in CO right now.

I have been putting all of this in God’s hands, trying to be patient (which is not my strong suit) through it all, but I am just feeling so let down and so forgotten at times. I know that there is a plan and a reason for all of this, but right now it is hard. It is as if we cannot catch a “break” at all.

So please keep our family in your prayers. Thank you!!


I am praying for you and your family.:crossrc: The Lord will give you and your wife strength.

If this lasts too long, is there anyway you could all live in a Colorado apartment until you are able to relocate for definite? Especially for the summer? Just a thought, I realize it might not be possible. I feel for you and will keep you in thought and prayer! :slight_smile:


You have my prayers…

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst 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.


No there is no way to do that, we could not afford it. My wife is a SAHM and we would not be financially able to do that. There are many other reasons, but the laundry list would be too long.

Thank you very much for the prayers for my family in this difficult time.


I understand entirely, I am also a stay at home wife who is “unemployed.” (We all know that your wife is more than employed by God with a triple-shift full time job!) :wink:

You are a wonderful husband and father! Try prayers to Saint Joseph (if you haven’t already) I am sure he had to travel out of town at times to make ends meet. They may have been the richest family spiritually, but, certainly not financially. I will pray for strength for you, your wife and kids. :gopray2:

God bless you and Mary keep you! :signofcross:
