Please Pray for My Family


#1

Hi everyone,

My family is going through a very difficult situation. About a year ago, my mother was a victim of a head on collision (other person’s fault) and has had very serious health issues as a result. She used to be the main provider for my family, since my father has a very low-paying job. She filed for social security-disability after several different doctors told her she could never work again, and was just turned down days ago. We are on the verge of losing our home, and are selling some of our personal possessions to afford groceries. Being the oldest daughter myself, I’m paying my way through college right now, and may have to give everything up to try and financially support my family. I’m working one job right now to help with groceries, and looking for another right now. To make matters worse, I got a ticket earlier today for accidentally going 5 miles an hour over the speed limit where the limit changed from 55 to 45 and I was in the process of slowing down. I have been working myself to fatigue trying to make extra money for the family, to the point of being sick. I’m only 19, and I’ve never had to face anything like this before. Things feel hopeless sometimes, and I’m pretty scared to be honest.

Please, please pray for us and keep us in your thoughts.

Thank you so much,
Hilary

Hang on tight to Jesus and to Mary in the rosary. With Jesus in your boat, you will not sink… just hold on tight to HIM… I will pray for you now and offer you and your family in the mass.

Hilary this is a huge burden for you. I hope your father can get some more work or better paid work to support his family. Please God it will be so and that you are able to continue getting yourself through college.
I ask Padre Pio to pray for your family for the best outcomes for all of you.
Jesus please be merciful to this family. Mother Mary and St Joseph please pray for this family.

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name

Give us this day our daily bread.
Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us,
And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. Amen

as it was in the begining, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen

Novena Prayer to
St. Anthony of Padua

O Holy St. Anthony, gentlest of Saints,
your love for God and Charity for his creatures,
made you worthy,when on earth, to possess
miraculous powers. Miracles waited on your
word,which you were ever ready to speak
for those in trouble or anxiety. Encouraged by this,
I implore for you to obtain for me
[medical and financial assistance; cures for all ills]
The answer to my prayers may require a miracle.
Ever so, you are the Saint of Miracles. O gentle
and loving St. Anthony,whose heart was ever full
of human sympathy,whisper my petition into
the ears of thy Sweet Infant Jesus, who loved
to be folded in your arms, and the gratitude
of my heart will be ever yours,
Amen

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy. Hail our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we do sigh, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, Most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy towards us. And after this our exile, show us the blessed Fruit of thy womb, Jesus, O Clement, O Loving, O Sweet Virgin Mary. Amen.
