I pray for remission of my RA; I pray for help with my knees; I pray that the doctors treating me are blessed with wisdom; I pray for financial stability and an increase in yearly salary; I pray if I am meant to meet "the one" for the wisdom to know when I have found the right man, a man whom God would approve.

Dear St. Joseph, please pray for me that I may find a solution on how to pay my financial obligations with the high school I studied in. I have a balance of 60,000 pesos (about $2000). It was only through God's grace that I was able to be admitted in the university despite the lack of documentary requirements needed to enroll. Dear St. Joseph, I am not asking for wealth, but for some visible help and relief from heaven. I need it by the end of March.

I also pray, dear St. Joseph, for the relationship of L. and K., as well as M. and J.

I know you can help me. St. Joseph, with Jesus and Mary, pray for me, and come to my aid!

St. Joseph, As you know I pray to you everyday....one prayer in particular is for all of us who were suddenly terminated at work, that you bless and guide us to new employment and better circumstance. We all have accompanying hardships and personal family circumstances which makes it all the more of a challenge. Thank you for your blessings.

We ask for your faithful intercession in selling our home and purchasing the next one. If it be God's will that we can afford two mortgages, may the bank grant us a good interest rate so that we can make our new home and then ready the current home to sell; if that not be His will, may our current home sell quickly, smoothly and profitably so that we can begin new memories in the next home soon. Thanks be to God, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.

St. Joseph, patron of families, please help my daughter. Please ask Jesus to have mercy on her. You know very well her severe temporal needs, which I beg, if it is God 's will, that He meet....she desperately needs a safe place to live. She is so far from home! But even more important are her spiritual needs. Please be with her; please may she know your peace and presence and care. Patron of families, please, if it is God's will for her life, find her a catholic husband, a man as true and string and good and faithful as her father.
She has suffered so much!

St.Joseph, I've 2 situations which I need your help on.

I'm on my knees, have tears in my eyes and am begging you from the bottom of my heart to please heal my lover. Please remove all his sickness, disease, and make him healthy, same for my family. Please give him and my family, long, healthy and wealthy life. Please heal him. I also want you to do something so that he listens to me, as I want him to give up smoking, taking tobacco and too much alcohol intake. Please help me.

I also want him to love me a lot and only think of me, and I want him to propose me for marriage, as I want to settle down and have family with him. Please bless us with children and make my life very blissful, fill it with love, joy, patience, and understanding. Bless me and my partner, so that we may never surrender to whatever challenges that comes our way, Fill our hearts with love for each other, and may you make each one of us realise each other's worth. Please touch the heart of my partner, fill it with much love for me. Make our complicated relationship become uncomplicated. I seek for your mercy and blessings to make us spend the rest of our lives with each others till my last breath. Please make this feelings for both of us. Always put us in each other's heart and mind, please bless our business so that we can expand.

Don't allow him to leave me. I want him to be only mines.

I also want my friend's wife to stop cheating her husband and her child, as she's seeing and communicating with her lover discreetly. Please change her so that she does not have any feelings, love, interest for her lover, and she will stop communicating or contacting him. Infact, she should only love, serve, be truthful and a dutiful mother and wife to her husband and her child, and reside to another country with her family forever.

Same goes with her lover, he should have no more feelings, love, interest for her, nor he'll communicate or call her anymore. Please make his mind blank of her.

Please don't let the family fall apart, as her child loves her parents immensely and he loves his wife too.

Please help to solve this.

Thank you.

Amen

Please say a prayer for me to get a good job quickly since I have been unemployed for about 7+ months. The company I am really expecting to work in has been delaying the confirmation indefinitely for months. Thanks!


Please also join me in praying the prayer to Saint Josemaria Escriva, who has already helped many of his devotees to get good jobs:

O God, through the mediation of Mary our Mother, you granted your priest St. Josemaría countless graces, choosing him as a most faithful instrument to found Opus Dei, a way of sanctification in daily work and in the fulfillment of the Christian's ordinary duties. Grant that I too may learn to turn all the circumstances and events of my life into occasions of loving You and serving the Church, the Pope and all souls with joy and simplicity, lighting up the pathways of this earth with faith and love. Deign to grant me, through the intercession of St. Josemaría, the favor of ... (make your request). Amen.

Our Father. Hail Mary. Glory be to the Father.
