Prayer For Survival and Strength in Desperation

by Sagine (New York)

St Jude, please hear my prayer. I am 24 years old with a 3 year old. I have been being strong and carrying the world on my shoulders since the age of 7. I don’t know how much longer I can stand. I move so much, in between jobs, all by myself. We have been evicted, my car has been repossessed, and This is my second time catching bronchitis in one month.

My immune system cannot withstand so much stress because I end up in the hospital. I feel so weak. I pray for strength so I can be the rock for my baby. I pray that I get lifted out of this depression and angst because I do not want it to defeat me and kill me like it did my mother. I pray to stop feeling alone. I pray to stop wanting to turn to others who arent there, for my happiness. I pray for stability.

I pray for happiness. I feel beaten and weak. I cry all day and night and is starting to show physically. I have done a good job at holding on and being strong for many years but so many things are coming at me at once that I can no longer hold anymore. I know life is not easy and there are many setbacks but I do not know how to handle them anymore. Please St Jude hear my prayer for strength and guidance! Amen
