Overwhelmed, scared, lonely

Hi everyone,

This is my first post here, and I thought it would be a good place to start…

I have several things I’ve been praying for and ask if you could remember them in your prayers as well…

For me…that I get my overseas working papers sorted and not feel like I’m wandering the earth constantly searching. I know what I want, but to actually get it is out of my hands. I feel so scared and alone.

For my ex boyfried…who is still in my life and who I love v. much. That he realizes my love for him, and recognizes how worthy of love he is. I hope and pray that we can mend our relationship and be as happy as we once were.

For my mom, who courageously fought breast cancer and is now in remission. I pray every day for her and I love her v. much.

All of the above factors have contributed to a great sense of panic, despair, anxiety and depression. I pray for a peace of mind for myself. Also, I need my strength and spirit back…I feel like I’ve been missing these elements for a while now…

Thank you for your prayers!

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion – inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to your holy will, which is love and mercy itself. Amen.

Thanks everyone! I’m still waiting to hear the news re: job, and everything else is in flux, but I’m hoping and praying, and I feel a bit calmer knowing that ppl are praying for me. :slight_smile:

Praying very hard to St. Dymphna for your peace of mind!

Prayers promised

Still praying very hard for you!

Continuing prayers …


Still praying very hard for you!

I’ll add you to my daily prayer, for your intentions, relief from your anxiety and depression and renewed hope.

Thank you v. much for all your thoughts and prayers! As it stands today, my depression and anxiety is not as bad, and the gnawing pain seems to be subsiding.

I have 2 job interviews this week, and I’m praying and hopeful that one of them works out…which would give me the chance to stay in the UK for the duration that I would like to.

Thank you so much again for your prayers!!!:slight_smile:

Natty, praying that you’ll get one of those jobs!
