Hurting inside...

Please pray for me and my family.

I don’t know where to start, so I hope you will forgive the following rant:

  • Please pray for my depression.
  • My kids have Autism and I blame myself. Why did God make my kids Autistic? Please pray for my kids.
  • I’ve been betrayed by everyone I’ve ever held dear to my heart. Please pray that I stop reliving the pain.
  • I’m being slandered. I’m not fighting back. Please pray that people stop. I just want to be left alone to heal.
  • My wife doesn’t know how to support me. She betrayed me before also (not infidelity), but I’m trying to learn to trust her again, but it hurts taking the high road with your spouse. It’s like reliving the pain every time I see/think about them. Please pray for us.
  • Please pray that I don’t succumb to the anger. I don’t want to be a “bad person”
  • Please pray that I stop beating myself up. I blame myself for everything, even if it’s not my fault.
  • Please pray that the hurt stops…

For the help you need…
Our Father
Hail Mary x10
Glory Be
Fatima
Amen

Praying for the intentions of you & your family.

I’m so sorry you are going through all this. I’m praying for you. I know it is hard, but forgiving these people will help you feel better. Also, don’t blame yourself for your son’s autism. Also, God doesn’t want you to beat yourself up. He loves you very much.

You might want to talk to a priest. God bless you.

Blessed Mother, please intercede for us.
Hold the sorrowful-
Mother and love the weary, abused, neglected
or forgotten among us-
Give your aid to all needing help or healing-
Assist those who are sick, in pain or suffering-
Be with those needing peace-
Console the lonely or brokenhearted-
Comfort the lost or hopeless-
Strengthen the fearful-
Guard the unborn-
Pray for those who are dying or who have died-
Soften those with hardened hearts-
Enlighten those who do not yet see truth-
Help us be brave enough to let our hurt and anger go-
Show us the way to do the right thing-
Protect those who are in danger, and
Guide us from every evil.
May all who keep your sacred commemoration
experience the might of your assistance.
Amen :gopray2:

Praying very hard for your intention.

United With The Sacred Heart

 This Heart is a pierced Heart. Jesus stands before us with a pierced Heart. We have seen how knowledge of God has always cost; the human heart has to be broken open before it can receive God, and thus it was with Jesus. And the deepest mystery of all is that we learn that the Father's own Heart is pierced. 
 How can we enter into this pierced Heart? Only by becoming like it, .. living in love at whatever cost, paying the high price of loving. Too easily we assume that loving is a pleasurable experience. Most surely it is the only sweetness in life, but this must be understood correctly. True love is always bleeding in our mortal life. You simply cannot have love in this life without pain. 

Just think of our own way of carrying on. We get hurt, offended … what do we do? Shrink into ourselves, erect all sorts of barriers. Our heart has withdrawn from the one who hurts us in any way. We mustn’t be hurt, “I matter,” our poor ego cries. But that is not how Jesus loves. If we would be like him we must struggle to the death with all this, refuse to curl up, refuse to withdraw in the slightest. We must go on exposing ourselves, giving ourselves, pouring ourselves out.
We say we want to love, we want to serve, we want to give ourselves, and at bottom we are saying we want selfish satisfaction. We want to feel we matter, are important, we want to feel fulfilled; in other words we are using others, and the beautiful concept of love is being abused. Love is selfless. The way into the Heart of Jesus is not through. intellectual insight, not through glowing emotion, but through learning to pay the cost of pure love. There is sacrifice involved in letting others be themselves.

Prayer To St. Josemaria Escriva

St. Josemaria Escriva, we humbly implore you for your prayers and intercession. As the founder of Opus Dei, you saw the beauty and sanctity to be gained in living our daily lives for God. Help us as we struggle through our crosses today- the little irritations that grate, the people who annoy, the situation that didn’t go our way, the exhaustion at the end of the day. You were able to see God’s will in every aspect of your life. Help us as we fight our concupiscence, our cowardice, our tendency to take the path of least resistance, as we attempt to follow Jesus on the way of the cross. I ask you especially to pray for all who have asked for prayers on the forum today, for my loved ones, and for all those for whom I am obligated to pray. Keep us within your heart on this your feast day, and pray for us to the Father in union with Christ our Lord. Amen.

St. Josemaria Escriva, pray for us!

Dear Jesus, the OP has so many concerns and worries for himself and his family. He needs some help and some strength and blessings. Please rain down your blessings, your mercy and the light of understanding on this person. Relieve his depression, which is likely affecting his thought process and ability to cope. Strengthen him mentally and physically, and help him and his family to persevere. Please bless and strengthen his relationship with his spouse and allow this couple to put the past behind them and go forward together with rebuilt trust. In Jesus’ name we humbly pray. Amen.

Memorare

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, o Virgin of Virgins, my mother. To thee do we come, before thee we stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despite not our petitions (to help the OP with all of the issues that he listed), but in your mercy hear and answer them. Amen.

St. Joseph, please pray for the OP’s intentions.
St. Dymphna, please pray for the OP’s intentions.
St. Rita of Cascia, please pray for the OP’s intentions.

Prayer of St. Teresa of Avila
Let nothing disturb you,
Let nothing frighten you,
All things are passing away:
God never changes.
Patience obtains all things
Whoever has God lacks nothing;
God alone suffices.

“Pray, hope, and don’t worry.” - St. Padre Pio

I’m praying for you. May the Lord rectify your situation.

Praying…

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

Amen.

Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.

Amen.

mockery, contradiction.

I need courage to fight against the devil,
against terrors and troubles, temptations,
attractions, darkness and false lights,
against tears, depression, and above all fear.

I need Your help, dear God.

Strengthen me with Your love and Your grace.

Console me with Your blessed Presence
and grant me the courage to persevere
until I am with You forever in heaven.

Amen.

Praying for you. You have such a heavy cross. Sometimes I think I do and then I ask the Lord to help me carry it and he does. Little windows of light where the load is lighter. I hope and pray he sends you at least some little windows of light.

Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.

I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; He descended into hell; on the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty; from there He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
