The anguish in the night

All of the thoughts, fears, why’s come upon me, Lord Jesus, awake in the night. Help me see my way through this crushing legal debt of my divorce, the constant work of my ex-spouse to alienate my children from me, and the maliciousness she continues to bear toward me and act upon, though she was the unrepentant philanderer in our marriage. Be with all those who were devoted yet driven to divorce. I ask Your assistance Lord for mine and others’ continuing efforts to forgive, if we could but imitate that smallest part of Your forgiveness toward those jeering at You upon the cross. Amen.

Praying to the Holy Spirit to give you guidance, direction, strength, fortitude & wisdom in your .time of need.

Virgin Mary, Mother of fair love,
Mother who never refuses
to come to the aid of a child in need,
Mother whose hands never cease
to serve your beloved children
because they are moved by the divine love
and immense mercy that exists in your heart,
cast your compassionate eyes upon us
and see the snarl of knots that exist in our lives.

You know very well how desperate we are,
our pain and how we are bound by these knots.
Mary, Mother to whom God entrusted
the undoing of the knots in the lives of his children,
we entrust into your hands the ribbons of our lives.
No one, not even the evil one himself,
can take them away from your precious care.
In your hands there is no knot that cannot be undone.

Powerful Mother,
by your grace and intercessory power
with your Son and our Liberator, Jesus,
take into your hands today this knot…
We beg you to undo it for the glory of God,
once for all.

You are my hope.
O my Lady,
you are the only consolation God gives me,
the fortification of my feeble strength,
the enrichment of my destitution
and with Christ the freedom from my chains.

Hear our pleas.
Keep us, guide us, protect us, o safe refuge!

Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for us!

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner.

Peace

Lord Jesus Christ, grant us all the grace of forgiveness and the courage to go forward.

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.

Amen.

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 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.

Amen.

Prayer to Our Lady of Mental Peace

O Lady of Mental Peace,
Mother of Tranquility
and Mother of Hope,
look upon indymb in this time
of weakness and unrest.

Teach her searching heart
to know that God’s Love
for her is unchanging and
unchangeable, and, that
true human love can only
begin and grow by touching
His Love.

Let your gentle Peace -
which this world cannot give

  • be always with her.
    And, help her to bring this
    same Peace into the lives
    of others.

Our Lady of Mental Peace,

  • Pray for us!
    Amen.

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 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!

Amen

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve: to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus, O merciful, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary! Amen.

Still praying for you, dear one…
