Prayers needed...

Hi everyone

I realise no-one here knows me or anything about me, but basically I am suffering dreadfully with depression and have been since the start of the year. I have been praying to Mary constantly since then to bring me some kind of peace - I feel like I have lost the ability to see any beauty in the world and I know it is all starting to have an effect on my family who are worried about me. I’m desperate, I have told God so many times I would do anything if he will just give me some peace of mind. I’ve been saying a Novena for Impossible Requests over the last few days and I’m just hopeful that God might smile on me during Easter and let me enjoy life again

If anyone wants to include a stranger who can’t find peace in their prayers, please spare me a thought

Thank you

Kieran

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 death
Amen

Keiran, I do hope that you are getting wise help for your depression. If you can’t see any beauty in the world, you are quite depressed, and I do hope that you are looking after yourself. I wonder what is making you depressed and if there’s a way to work at dealing with that with practical research and practical human solutions as well as prayer.

You’re not a stranger, but a friend and brother we have yet to get to know better.
I will pray for you, Keiran, and really hope that you can get past this difficult time to begin to find beauty and happiness.
I ask the Lord to help you find goodness and beauty in yourself, because it’s there, Keiran. I know it is.
Today, please find one thing that you think could be beautiful if you really think about it.
Please tell us if you can see one thing. I pray you will.
Warmly, Trishie

and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
