Need Prayers for my faith that is wavering

I am asking for prayers … that my faith become more stable and unwavering. It has been awhile now that I find myself rushing through prayers, not concentrating in church and even forcing myself to get up on Sundays to go to mass. I only go with a happy face to set a good example for my daughter.

I feel like I have lost the passion to listen to Catholic radio or even read a bit of the bible. I feel bored, tired and lost.

I would like to be on fire for our Lord as I was years ago! Please! Prayers are needed!:blush:

I will pray for you. :crossrc:

Our Father said.

I am praying for your intentions I think we all go through such “dry spells” even the saints did.

May the Holy Spit kindle in you the fire of the Faith!


PS I think it’s wonderful you are still taking your daughter to Mass at this point. Way to go mom, it’d be easy to just slack off in such a state.

Praying to the Holy Spirit to give you guidance, direction, strength, fortitude & wisdom in your time of need.

You know, I was like that for a while, then I started to FORCE myself to pray every day. I remember seeing something in the south that said something like “if you’re too busy to pray, you’re too busy”. Which was kind of my excuse. I now pray the rosary, the Legion of Mary prayers, the Jesus Prayer, and the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. I haven’t got any kids, but I have much younger siblings that I am in regular care of. Fun thing I do with them is make them read a chapter of the Bible before they use my computer. I know what it’s like to force yourself to get up for Mass, but now I would like to be able to go to Daily Mass. I’ll say a prayer for you.

Praying for you. :slight_smile:

Thank you all for your prayers! What a beautiful website this is !

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 diannezambrano, 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.

Prayer to Our Lady of Mental Peace

O Lady of Mental Peace,
Mother of Tranquility
and Mother of Hope,
look upon fdiannezambrano in this time
of weakness and unrest.

Teach her searching heart
to know that God’s Love
for her is unchanging and
unchangeable, and, that
true human love can only
begin and grow by touching
His Love.

Let your gentle Peace -
which this world cannot give

  • be always with her.
    And, help her to bring this
    same Peace into the lives
    of others.

Our Lady of Mental Peace,

  • Pray for us!

Jesus, Help Me!

In every need let me come to You with humble trust,
Jesus, help me!
In all my doubts, perplexities, and temptations:
Jesus, help me!
In hours of loneliness, weariness and trials:
Jesus, help me!
In the failure of my plans and hopes, in disappointments,
troubles and sorrows:
Jesus, help me!
When others fail me, and Your Grace alone can assist me:
Jesus, help me!
When I throw myself on Your tender Love as Savior:
Jesus, help me!
When my heart is cast down by failure, at seeing no good
come from my efforts:
Jesus, help me!
When I feel impatient, and my cross irritates me:
Jesus, help me!
When I am ill, and my head and hands cannot work and
I am lonely:
Jesus, help me!

Always, always, in spite of weakness, falls and short-
comings of every kind:
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, help me and never forsake me!


**Glory be to the Father,
and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning,
is now,
and ever shall be,
world without end.


There is the bad cop and the good cop, the easy way and the hard way.

The good cop and the easy way is Mary. Talk to her lots. She just has a way.

St. 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 thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen…
