Prayers battling procrastination

Can you please pray for me? My dad died over a year ago, and I still haven’t cleaned out his house completely. I really need to get it finished this week and arrange for movers and new carpet. Also, our basement sump pump has overflowed and I need to get someone to pump it out. A lot of things I don’t want to deal with, but I MUST make myself.

Help me Jesus and I offer up these tasks in reparation for the outrage, sacrilege and indifference by which You and our Lady are offended


Hail Mary for you.
Jesus, in Your name please help the OP and others feeling overwhelmed by similar tasks.

Mary, Joseph, St Vincent Ferrer please intercede for this person.

Thank you. 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.


Jesus, Help Me!

In every need let me come to You with humble trust,


Jesus, help me!

In all my doubts, perplexities, and temptations:

Jesus, help me!

In hours of loneliness, weariness and trials:

Jesus, help me!

In the failure of my plans and hopes, in disappointments,

troubles and sorrows:

Jesus, help me!

When others fail me, and Your Grace alone can assist me:

Jesus, help me!

When I throw myself on Your tender Love as Savior:

Jesus, help me!

When my heart is cast down by failure, at seeing no good

come from my efforts:

Jesus, help me!

When I feel impatient, and my cross irritates me:

Jesus, help me!

When I am ill, and my head and hands cannot work and

I am lonely:

Jesus, help me!

Always, always, in spite of weakness, falls and short-

comings of every kind:

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, help me and never forsake me!
