Please help us with your prayers. Please!!!

Me and my 3 year old son are having some difficult times. I lost my job, I am two months behind with financial stuff, including rent, my son had a surgery one week ago, my mother is sick... I tried to find help from my friends, but nobody was interested in helping us. I prayed, and I prayed... and now I am desperate. I feel like jumping from a building because I can't stand it anymore. I do not have the money to pay my debts and move forward. We could end up on the street from the 1st of February. Maybe God will listen to your prayers and so will have mercy on us.

Thank you.

Thank you so much for your prayers. It means a lot to us.

I am very scared now and somehow I want to see hope again in my soul. It's for the 1st time when I feel like I have lost my hope. Now I just cannot see what are we going to do in these extreme financial situation. I look at my son and I feel so helpless... It's very painful...

Lord, have mercy!
You must seek help marymar7!
Have you talked to your Father /Priest?
Are there any Charitable trusts connected to your career? I have had some help -including financial- from one I belong to. We are in a similar situation at the moment but I managed to get some help towards costs. You must fight for your Son's sake! Please don't give up! It's not permanent.

I am trying not to give up, but it's not that simple... I am overwhelmed by my financial problems and also I am very stressed in finding a job. My financial help, meaning the unemployment help is coming in three months time. Now I cannot obtain a loan and even my friends don't bother in helping me now when I need help. I have 3,000 usd debts. And I have to make a lot of payments till 1st of February. Otherwise I am very much done. I hoped, I prayed, every single day for help. I keep saying that this is just a hard test from God and I am trying not to lose my faith, but I just cannot take it anymore. I have never imagined that all of my friends will vanish when I'm in need. When they needed my money or my help, they always received it. The Father from the church is being very supportive with me. Unfortunately the church cannot make a collection (to raise money for me and my son) because of the parish rules. Only very special cases obtain approval. I am really stuck. Sad(

Maybe God will listen to your prayers. I just hope somehow He will have mercy and send me help.

Thank you a lot.
