  33. Hello
    My daughter is 33 years old. She and her 15 year old daughter live with me. They keep my home very dirty – they don’t clean up after themselves; They refuse to clean their room which smells and as a result my daughter sleeps on my couch. When she’s at home she lays on the couch all day which can be uncomfortable for my husband and I as we have no privacy. My husband and I we childhood neighbours and we reconnected and were married almost 2 years ago. My daughter doesn’t contribute financially to the home AT ALL and by the furst week after pay day she sends my grand-daughter to borrow money from me (which she never pays back). She is very argumentative with me, would use my car without asking me. The only reason I had not put her out was because of my grand-daughter – who is now becoming rude and disrespectful to me. Various people have been contacting me at my job and on my cell phone because she is owing them money. I need help with this situation because it is taking a toll on me mentally and physically. Please pray for me and for this situation to be resolved. I have had a hard time trying to raise my children on my own and now that I am in my 50s I need peace in my life. Also please guide me on which novena I can pray because sometimes I get so depressed I cannot pray on my own.

  34. Almighty God I continue to ask You for my mental wellbeing.
    Thank you for all that You do in Jesus’ name. Amen

  35. Thank you for taking care of my son that is Studying abroad Please keep praying for him and keep him safe Amen

  36. I will continue to pray for a friend and communicant who has had cerebral palsy for sixty years. Looking for a miracle from our Gracious and Good Lord who has cured many people. Many people praying for him will continue to do so for as long as it takes to cure him of this debilitating disease. Please pray with me.
    Thank you Our Most Merciful God, Our Lord and thank you for joining me in this plight.
