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.

Continued prayers for your intentions.

Praying for you and your intentions.

Gracious and merciful Father, please come to his assistance.

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 are 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.

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.
Amen.

I believe they delight in your failures is, because they are, on some level, envious of you.

Really.

Praying that the Holy Spirit grants you fortitude and strength.

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.

Amen.

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 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.

Amen.

Still praying.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that
never was it known that anyone who fled to
thy protection, implored thy help, or
sought thy intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence,
we fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins,
our Mother. To thee do we come,
before thee we stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not our petitions but in
thy mercy hear and answer us. Amen.
