Living situation


I am new here. I used to visit years ago when I lived in Florida and when I first moved here to Pennsylvania. But everything has changed so much that I might as well just say I am new.

I am feeling so lost right now. 6 years ago I got a divorce. Over the last 4 months I filed for bankruptcy. Now I want to reunite with my ex husband and at least he is responding to some of my emails. God has said that it is His intention to put us back together.

I am living at my mother and father’s home and this has been very difficult. My son is recovering from an addiction and is living about an hour and a half from here. He is also thinking about moving back to Florida. It is so frustrating to wait for change to happen. I am in limbo, I have 2 books that I am self-publishing, one is a pro-life book, I am very pleased with it; and this keeps me sane. But I am so worried that my ex will never take me back and my parents can be so disrespectful. I don’t have enough money to live on my own and I have asked my ex to resume paying alimony if he doesn’t want to take me back. Please pray for me that my husband makes up his mind to do something to help this frustrating situation.


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 to 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 Thy mercy hear and answer me, Amen


I’m praying that God resolves your situation and that He guides your ex husband to whatever the right decision may be. Amen.


Prayers for you and your family


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.


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.


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.


For Help in Trials

Most holy apostle St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered your beloved Master into the hands of His enemies has caused you to be forgotten by many. But the Church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of hopeless cases–of things despaired of. Pray for me who feels so hopeless. Make use, I implore you, of that particular privilege accorded to you of bringing visible and speedy help where help is almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in this great need, that I may receive the consolations and succor of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations and sufferings, in particular (cloudsurfer), and that I may bless God with you and all the elect throughout eternity. I promise you, O Blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, and I will never cease to honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to do all in my power to encourage devotion to you. Amen.

Dear Jesus,

I humbly implore you to grant your special graces to our family. May our home be the shrine of peace, purity, love, labor and faith. I beg you, dear Jesus, to protect and bless all of us, absent and present, living and dead.

O Mary,

Loving Mother of Jesus, and our Mother, pray to Jesus for our family, for all the families of the world, to guard the cradle of the newborn, the schools of the young and their vocations.

Blessed Saint Joseph,

holy guardian of Jesus and Mary, assist us by your prayers in all necessities of life. Ask of Jesus that special grace which he granted to you, to watch over our home at the pillow of the sick and the dying, so that with Mary and with you, Heaven may find our family unbroken in the sacred Heart of Jesus.



Prayers for you…

God of love,
may we come quickly to thee,
when in need of protection and sympathy.
Guard us against sorrow
that is drawn from the imagination.
May we not allow grief
to drag us into misery,
but with strength and courage
may we find happiness in thy daily will.

Watch, O Lord,
with those who wake,
or watch, or weep tonight,
and give Your angels and saints
charge over those who sleep.
Tend Your sick ones, O Lord Christ.
Rest Your weary ones.
Bless Your dying ones.
Soothe Your suffering ones.
Pity Your afflicted ones.
Shield Your joyous ones,
and all for Your love’s sake.
Amen. :pray:


For your needs…
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, Amen…


O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!

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 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.

Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world. x10

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.


Thank you so much for your prayers, my ex husband has come forward and is offering financial help, I am hoping and praying now that he goes one step further and asks us to come back to Florida, It is the only solution I know of that addresses the issue of placement of the cats.

Thank you again, God bless all of you.
