Beautiful prayer Evann. I am going to pray for the same. May I create enough freelance work so I may keep up with my bills. May I be able to always meet my new maintenance fee. May my freelance work increase and wonderful collaborations take root this year. For my friend SS, may she find a new job that suits her perfectly. May SK also find a new job that suits her soon. May God's abundance visit all who need it and may we all be given hope and strength.

MEMORARE TO SAINT JOSEPH

Remember, O most chaste spouse of the Virgin Mary, that never was it known that any one who imployed thy help and sought thy intercession was left unassisted. Full of confidence in thy power, I fly unto thee, and beg thy protection. Despise not, O foster-father of the Redeemer, my humble supplication, but in thy bounty hear and answer me. Amem
(Pius IX, June 26, 1863)

For a Widow friend of mine L.V. who when her husband was ill, Medicare and their Insurance did not pay for all the hospitalizations, surgeries, rehab, extended care, home health care, etc. They mortgaged their home and after his death there still was a lot of medical debt. She has tried all sorts of things to resolve this issue even trying to re-finance at a lower interest rate to lower the monthly payment but the bank is saying no. She doesn't know what she is going to do either have to sell or loose her home at this late stage in her life. HELP ST. JOSEPH.

Please pray for my legal problems. That I will finally be allowed to have and enjoy what my grandfather left me. Please pray the greed and dishonesty that has infected my family will be healed. That I will finally be treated with fairness. May my property be sold quickly and at a good price and may the judge distribute the proceeds according to the Will of God. Please pray also that I will not sin in all this but conduct my affairs always with fairness, honesty and kindness and be helped to forgive. Thank you for all your prayers.

Dear St. Joseph, Happy Feast Day to you, I am suffering from depression due to my financial problems and due to the fact that my kids live far away from me. I am a single mother and I am trying my best to support my kids, I am trying to make ends meet but lately, I've been struggling and I am afraid that if I can't pay my debts anymore, I might get jailed. I am very afraid for my children, they are too young and I am the only one they've got. Please St. Joseph, ask your Son, out Lord Jesus Christ to give me another chance to start anew, I am slowly falling into a deep abyss and I am afraid that I can't hold on much longer. I feel so lonely and alone. I don't know what to do anymore. Please help me.
