please pray that I may persevere

Today, at this point I have completed 4 years of undergraduate education, and 2 years of medical school education. After some challenges, I’m transferring schools to one in the caribbean. Complicating things, I am the only serious Catholic in my family, and when I mess up, everyone else takes pleasure in my failures. One of my favorite bible verses (1Cor 13), says Love perseveres, is patient and kind. Just need prayers for perseverance and patience in bearing fruit in my family, especially my mom. I want to run away and find a decent job for a few years, and eventually become a priest. May I have the heart that of St. Monica, that will never give up, will endure and trusting that God will grant me peace, and that God may bless me for my troubles I’ve been through.

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. Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Remember oh 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 with this confidence I fly unto thee oh Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To thee I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. Oh Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray and do thou oh Prince of the Heavenly Host by the power of God cast into Hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

To Saint Paul for Perseverance

O glorious Saint Paul, who, from being a persecutor of the Christian name, didst become its most zealous Apostle, and who, to carry the knowledge of Jesus, our divine Saviour, to the uttermost parts of the earth, didst joyfully suffer prison, scourgings, stonings, shipwreck, and all manner of persecutions, and who didst finish thy course by shedding the last drop of thy blood: obtain for us the grace to accept, as favors bestowed by the mercy of God, the infirmities, sufferings, and misfortunes of this life, that we may not grow slack in our service of God by reason of these vicissitudes of our exile, but that we may the rather show ourselves ever more devoted. Amen.

V. Pray for us, Saint Paul the Apostle.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

who wander through the world for the ruin of souls.
