I’ve been praying frantically about two intentions these past days and weeks. Two intentions that if things don’t go my way, I can definitely say that my life is over. My future and my goals are at stake. Currently, I am offering rosaries, a novena to Saint Jude, and a novena to the Sacred Heart with regards to these intentions. I am kindly asking those in this forum to keep me in my intention. I am going through a time of uncertainty and insecurity.
The first intention is a private intention. I am too embarrassed to fully say it, but it is a problem that me and my girlfriend are both in. It is a problem caused by lust. Lord, I ask that things don’t appear as they seem. After this ordeal, I promise Lord, to stay pure.
The second intention is regarding my application to York University for September 2009 as a transfer student. Lord, I am depending on this acceptance as my ticket to a better future. I have no “back up plan” for this coming fall and I am solely relying on your kindness to help me get acceptance.
Lord, you said that if we asked anything in your name, you will grant it. You also said that if two or more of us pray that you will also not refuse our requests.
I know that you love me and you will not leave me unaided. If granted, I promise to be ever mindful of these favours Lord. An answer to these petitions will, without a doubt, greatly boost my faith. I have asked you for many many favours in the past, but these two I earnestly implore. May it be your will that these requests be granted to me. I promise to turn over a new leaf and be a good catholic. I promise to change my ways for the good. To Mary, my mother, I promise to be a child of the Rosary. I promise to recite the rosary on a daily basis.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
Our Lady of Perpetual Help, please come to my aid.
Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, please come to my aid.
Mary, my mother, please come to my aid.
Saint Jude, patron Saint of the desperate, please come to my aid.
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Please kindly hear my intentions.
To those who are praying for me. Thank you very much. I will not forget to keep you in my prayers as well.
