Request

I don’t ask for prayers for myself very often, but I am now.

My name is Sarah, and I am a 17 year old junior in high school. Lately I’ve been feeling this nagging depression (I am not in the least bit suicidal, just so you know). There are periods throughout the day (especially when I am alone to my thoughts) when I am saddened and I feel a hole in my heart that seems to never fill.

For a while, I was unsure of where these feelings were coming from. I think I have pinpointed them. Please pray not only for myself, but also for a good friend of mine, who we’ll call “Anthony”. Though he never felt the same, I think I will always love him, at least a little, and hold a special place for him in my heart. I hope and pray he ends up happy, and with the lucky girl meant for him.

What I need is prayers to help me trust the Lord, because that is probably the area I struggle with the most in my faith. I…find it hard to discern my vocation…I am afraid that I will make the wrong choice and hurt people in the process. Please pray that I will have the strength to trust God and accept whatever He has in store for me…and that I will also have the patience to wait for Him to reveal it whenever He sees fit.

Thank you for taking the time to read, and to pray…it’s much appreciated.

Dear Lord, please bless Sarah abundantly this Easter day and throughout the Easter season. Fill her heart with Your Spirit and set her on fire with love for You, more than ever before. May she place her complete trust in You and be abandoned to Your most holy will in all things. May this surrender to You bring her much peace and comfort. Let her know that we all suffer in our hearts from time to time and feel something that calls us to a deeper life of prayer and union with You. I’m sure You are just calling her to place her trust in Your loving care. I know You love Sarah infinitely. Even if she does not really feel Your presence right now to the greatest degree may she know that You are ever so present and by her side every step of the way. You ask her and us all to place our complete confidence in You like children and You also ask that we be abandoned to Your most merciful will, with complete trust in You. Next Sunday is the Feast of Your Divine Mercy. May Sarah experience Your merciful love by Your transforming her pain into joy now and on that day by her placing her trust in you and saying with St. Faustina: Jesus, I trust in You.
