My wife and I are struggling. Since she was let go in January she still has no job, added to our woes is that children “may or may not be possible” now after a visit to the doctor. Plus my throat and body ache and hurt. Feels like no relief anywhere. I’ll remember to pray for you all in my daily Rosary :o

Praying for you both.

Praying hard for your intention.

Thank you for praying with me, it means so much.

Praying for the intentions of you & your wife.

Remembering you and your wife in my daily prayers. Thank you for your prayers! God bless.

Praying, dear one. :grouphug:

:highprayer: Heavenly Father, we pray for Punisherthunder and his wife; surround them in your great mercy; go before them, open doors for them, meet their needs - physical, spiritual, financial and emotional; reveal Your Most Sacred Heart to them and put great peace, joy and love into their hearts!!! :amen:

My prayers are also with you and your wife for your intentions.

May you also be blessed with peace of mind. Heartfelt hugs to both of you.

Praying for you both. :slight_smile:

Prayers for you. Remember, the sun always rises eventually.

Our Father…

My wife had a severe panic attack over all of this and had to be medicated at home today. She’s not doing well at all and I feel she is on the edge of having a nervous breakdown.

Please pray for her and keep her in your prayers still.

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.


Prayer to St. Joseph for the Unemployed

O Saint Joseph, we pray to you for those who are out of work, for those who want to earn their living or support their families.

You who are the patron of workers; grant that unemployment may vanish from our ranks; that all those who are ready to work may put their strength and abilities in serving their fellowmen and earn a just salary.

You are the patron of families; do not let those who have children to support and raise lack the necessary means. Have pity on our brothers and sisters held down in unemployment and poverty because of sickness or social disorders. Help our political leaders and captains of industry find new and just solutions. May each and every one have the joy of contributing, according to his abilities, to the common prosperity by an honorable livelihood. Grant that we may all share together in the abundant goods God has given us and that we may help underprivileged countries. Amen.

Prayer for a Miracle

God of all creation, you who spoke a simple command and brought forth light from
the darkness, I ask you now to send forth your miracle-working power to heal punisherthunder and his wife. You cleansed the lepers, opened the eyes of the blind and by
speaking a simple command, you empowered the crippled to rise up and walk.
You sent forth your life-giving power to all those in need, including those you raised from
the dead. I ask you to send forth your healing power into punisherthunder and his wife’s body and give him the strength to fight his illness. I ask this through my Lord, Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

If your wife has children, can you manage on just your salary for a while?

It sounds like you want your wife to work because you need the money while also hoping to have children. Maybe you can adopt if she cannot physically have a baby. Perhaps you could wait until you both feel better and make this decision. When you adopt, they always check your living conditions. If they sense your pain, they may not let you complete an adoption process.

If your wife is “almost on the verge of a nervous breakdown,” it is time to rethink and regroup as they say in the business world. Brainstorm and define the problems and then logically try to solve them. Take it one step at a time.

Dear God, please help this husband and wife to feel better so that if it is in the best interest of a child, that they can have a baby. Perhaps they could find a way to make their desires come true. Amen.

Joining with everyone in prayers for you and your wife.

Lord, be gracious;
Lord, hear us;
Lord, graciously hear us
and answer our prayers in your great mercy.

Hi punisherthunder,

Know that you are both in my thoughts and prayers.

Hang in there.

Prayers said for you both.

God bless you both.

Praying for your intentions.

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


Praying for you and your wife…+
*Pater noster, qui es in cælis, sanctificétur nomen tuum. Advéniat regnum tuum. Fiat volúntas tua, sicut in cælo, et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidiánum da nobis hódie, et dimítte nobis débita nostra sicut et nos dimíttimus debitóribus nostris. Et ne nos indúcas in tentatiónem, sed líbera nos a malo.

Áve María, grátia pléna, Dóminus técum. Benedícta tu in muliéribus, et benedíctus frúctus véntris túi, Iésus. Sáncta María, Máter Déi, óra pro nóbis peccatóribus, nunc et in hóra mórtis nóstrae.

Glória Patri, et Fílio, et Spirítui Sancto. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, et in sæcula sæculórum.

Sáncte Míchael Archángele, defénde nos in proélio, cóntra nequítiam et insídias diáboli ésto præsídium. Ímperet ílli Déus, súpplices deprecámur: tuque, prínceps milítiæ cæléstis, Sátanam aliósque spíritus malígnos, qui ad perditiónem animárum pervagántur in múndo, divína virtúte, in inférnum detrúde.


St. Genevieve, pray for us.
