Family Prayer

by Katie ()

Abba,
In desperation I find myself on my knees at your mantle. I am so fortunate. So delinquent in my thanks to you. I have so much. I do not have family tranquility. St. Joseph, I beg of you to intercede on behalf of my husband and my family. His happiness is so tenuous. My children are affected. I am affected. I want nothing more than calm and happiness for my family. He would like to move, and so I am happy to leave this neighborhood I call home to find something new. He would like to leave the stress of his work behind, and so I am happy to leave behind material goods for him to work less or differently. I have been writing letters, researching new jobs, encouraging mental health visits, but it is really you who I need. Please wrap your blanket around us and let me hear what I need to do. I am a lost lost lamb in need of my shepherd. I have been trying to bear the weight of my family on my shoulders, and I just don’t know what to do. I am collapsing under the weight, and I am getting nowhere. I beg for help, and I beg for an open heart and open ears to hear the help you are offering.
