In need of prayers: family, kids, faith

Please pray for me. I don’t know what to do or where to go. I have always felt called to marriage and children but just turned 36 and am still single. Soon I will graduate, but I keep putting off job hunting because I don’t want to move and leave all my friends, but I feel like I have to move because I can’t find a godly Catholic husband where I live now. I also can’t get excited about any of the jobs because I just want to FINALLY be with my family/have kids before it is too late and spend time with them. I am a teacher and would love to serve God in my profession but I remember how sad it was to have to go home to no children and husband after working with kids all day and I can’t bear doing that again. It is very hard to have faith in God’s help–I have kept a journal for 15 years and it is so discouraging to see year after year after year after year–15 years worth–of unanswered prayers.

Praying for you…

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 death.

I’ll pray for you at Adoration today.

Praying for you, I will remember you in my daily rosary!
