Suffering and restlessness

I have a chronic illness that has been causing pain and restlessness. I feel like I need to be doing something but I don’t know what, and I want to offer up my sufferings but I don’t know how. Please pray for me that I would learn what I should do in this state and that I would be able to offer up my sufferings. Thank you.

I know how you feel.

Say at the beggining of every day:
Jesus I unite my suffering and pain with Your holy suffering, crucifixion and death on cross and I am offering it through hands of Blessed Virgin Mary for: my conversion/strenght/patience/as reparation for my sinns, my ungratefulness/souls in Purgatory/conversion of sinners/as reparation for sinns of the whole world. Or on any other intentions.

I will pray for you!

O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!

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 art thou amongst 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.

Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world. x10

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

Jesus, Help Me

In every need let me come
to You with humble trust, saying:
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 a Father and 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 shortcomings of every kind:
Jesus, help me and never forsake me. – Amen

You’re not alone.

I’ve been suffering from various ailments (that prevents me from living the life I’d have loved to) for such a long time that sometimes, I think my departure from this world is imminent, and that it , indeed, would be great if I could make an exit because I’d not have to be a burden to my people anymore.

And then, I found Jesus. I found this vast treasure of prayers. And although I’m far from being healed, my emotional and spiritual well being has fared better – far better than I dare to imagine. I am at ease with my suffering. Well, I do tend to fall into depression occasionally, but God has given me Hope. When I pray to Him, I feel such a “reassurance” coming from Him that by the end of the prayer, my heart feels soothed , consoled and protected.

I’m sorry, I think I’ve strayed away from the topic but I just wanted to share my plight and lessen your burden. Please be constant on prayers - perhaps the Rosary ? Or the Chaplet of Divine Mercy? Or any other prayers. I used to be restless too, but I made it compulsory to never miss a prayer – proper training of my mind to be disciplined. If you’ve spare time, you could pray morning, afternoon and night. Pray, pray and pray!!! Ask the Lord for guidance. Talk to Him with an open heart ( I do it all the time).

Have faith. Trust in the Lord without a second thought.

I will pray for you.

God Bless!!! :pray::pray:

O Mother of Perpectual Help, grant that I may ever invoke Thy most powerful name, which is the safeguard of the living and the salvation of the dying. O purest Mary, O Sweetest Mary, let thy name henceforth be ever on my lips. Delay not, O Blessed Lady, to help me whenever I call on thee, for, in all my temptations, in all my needs, I shall never cease to call on Thee, ever repeating Thy scared name, Mary, Mary, O what consolation, what sweetness, what confidence, what emotion filmy soul when I utter Thy scared name, or even only think of Thee, I thank God for having given Thee, for my good, so sweet, so powerful, so lovely a name, But I will not be content with merely uttering Thy name; let my love for Thee prompt me ever to hail Thee, Mother of Perpectual Help, please save the life of Onwings.
