I have started having panic attacks and doubts in my faith. I have started worrying that there is no God or afterlife. I went through a period like this after I gave birth to my twins, 6 years ago. I thought I was over it, but recently became very sick with the flu and my obsessive thoughts and worries came back. Please pray for me that I will find faith and comfort.
Hi Ash, if it was after your pregnancy that you felt like this it may have been postpartum depression. Anyways, I pray the Lord’s blessing upon you, may he make your faith steadfast and sure as when Thomas doubted Him he did not condemn but said touch my side, feel my wounds, so that you may believe! The Lord has so much mercy and compassion on us, even when doubtful He loves you more than ever! God bless.
Praying for you This too will pass.
Jesus our Lord, I trust in you, and place this person’s intentions in your most sacred heart. Please grant AshJade the comfort of your love, healing and inner peace as well as strength and courage
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
Lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil
:signofcross: Heavenly Father, we pray for AshJade; we know that the enemy wants doubt and unbelief in our lives and we come against him in the Name of Jesus Christ and assert that Ashley is a child of God; she has received Jesus in the Eucharist and other Sacraments; surround her with Your Holy Spirit and give her perfect and complete peace!!! :amen:
:signofcross: Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle; be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray: and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, 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
Eternal God , in whom mercy is endless,
and the treasury of compassion inexhastible ,
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
Memorare (Prayer to Our Lady)
Remember, 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 unto 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 your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen
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.
O beautiful Flower of Carmel, most fruitful vine, Splendor of Heaven, holy and singular, who brought forth the Son of God, still ever remaining a Pure Virgin, assist me in this necessity. O Star of the sea, help and protect me! Show me that Thou art my Mother.
O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to Thee!
A good book to read about the afterlife is a neurosurgeon’s near death experience where he actually visited heaven and came back to our world. The book is called “Proof of Heaven”, by a doctor who was basically an atheist all his life and then became a believer.
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death
