I have tried over and over again to pull us out of these financial issues, but my husband continues to spend all our money to the point where my family has no money even for food. I am at the end .. divorce is on my mind.. I lied to him the other day and told him it was not on my mind. But the truth is that I think about it every single day.

I ask for forgiveness of my sins and the guidance to be a good parent to my children. I ask to obtain a job where I am being paid today’s wages and not those from 20 years ago so that I may be able to meet my financial obligations and to take care of my family. I am constantly scared I will not be able to do so. I would also love to be able to assist those family members who are also in need and to be able to show them Gods love and will through my deeds and actions. And to bring them back to the church. I pray for my children that they will find loving Catholic partners whose families are like ours, routed within the love of God and want to be with one another because we genuinely like and love each other. There is no greater love than the unconditional love of God and family. I love you and thank you for ALL the Blessings you have bestowed on me so far in my life and for your forgiveness of sins that I was aware of and those I did not fully understand at the time. Everyone needs their Mom, I would love to have a hug and visit from my Mom. I miss her so very much. As well as my two children I did not get to know. I love you dearest Blessed Mother and Your son Jesus Christ. Amen

I pray that myself, my spouse and my children as well as extended family, that we may always have love, and that our relationships become balanced, whole, loving, holy, and that we may grown and have empathy and communication. May God protect our relationships and help them grow in a positive direction under God. Thank you.

  37. I have an answered prayer from the novena to Mary. I was praying especially for my son who is moving to a new city for a job after graduating from a Catholic college. His girlfriend planned to move with him and share an apartment. I was praying that he would make the right decision and not go through with the living situation. Last night- the day before he was to move out of state- he shared his concerns with me about his girlfriend moving with him. He talked to her after that and they called it off. Although I feel bad that he is moving far away and won’t know anyone, I am so thankful to God for intervening and so proud of my son for listening to the prompting and making a godly decision. I know this is answer to my prayer. Thanks be to God

  38. I pray to get the sunshine we need to get through our harvest.

    I also pray for a job that will be successful and fulfilling. It is very hard to find quality places to work. I was laid off last month, being I was unable to complete the schooling within the year required for this position. The organization would not make an exception, in my case, due to policy and procedures. As a result, I am unemployed.
    Being we live in a smaller community, it is extremely difficult to find work in my field. I guess, I am praying for a miracle. I ask for guidance and prayers through this difficult time.

  39. Dear Mother of God; Your Son Jesus Christ our Savior and our Brother; we Love you Mother, yes our Holy Mother; Please Pray for our Families that we become Holy, Graceful and Lovingly to ourself and all others around us … Amen
