Why does everything feel hopeless when I know God is here?

by DM (USA)

I do feel hopeless despite the fact I know God is ready and willing to help. It seems like no matter how much I pray or how many other people I ask to pray, things don’t seem to be going well. Everytime I turn around another problem happens that I have no control over. Please pray for me and my family. We really, really need many, many prayers for good health and finances. Thank you very much.
