Very stressed - Please pray


#1

Hi everyone,
Please pray for me. I’m very stressed at the moment. I’ve been asked to do something next week, which is causing me a lot of stress and I’m not getting done work wise, what I need to get done because I’m so stressed. I really don’t want to do it but have to as I feel it would be rude to refuse.
Also, could you pray to St. Anthony that something that is lost and very important is found. I’m so stressed at the moment over these two things, I really need prayers.
Thank you.

From today’s Liturgy of the Hours:

Psalm 8
The greatness of God, the dignity of man

O Lord, your name is great, for you have crowned your saints with honour and glory and placed them above all the works of your hands.

How wonderful is your name over all the earth,
O Lord, our Lord!
How exalted is your glory
above the sky!

Out of the mouths of children and infants you have brought praise,
to confound your enemies, to destroy your vengeful foes.

When I see the heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and stars, which you set in their place –
what is man, that you should take thought for him?
what is the son of man, that you should look after him?

You have made him but one step lower than the angels;
you have crowned him with glory and honour;
you have set him over the works of your hands.

You have put everything beneath his feet,
cattle and sheep and the beasts of the field,
the birds in the air and the fish in the sea,
whatever passes along the paths of the waters.

How wonderful is your name above all the earth,
O Lord, our Lord!

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
world without end.
Amen.

O Lord, your name is great, for you have crowned your saints with honour and glory and placed them above all the works of your hands.

Blessed art thou among women,

and at the hour of death.

Amen.

Thank you so much to everyone for all of your prayers. The thing that was lost was found!! :slight_smile:
However the thing that I was asked to do that is causing me so much stress, well I’ve just been let down by someone who was supposed to be doing it with me. Please continue to pray that this situation is resolved. I have so many things to work on it would really benefit me if I could not do this thing.
Many thanks,
Catherine
