prayer for struggling mom
« on: April 13, 2006, 07:17:38 PM »
Dear all,

I came here because I am a relatively new convert, at just about 2 years.
I have to admit I am really, truly struggling.  I am a busy mom with 7 children, and husband with sleep apnea. One of children is special needs and her issues are about to wipe us out financially- even though my dh makes a modest income.  No parent can prepare for this sort of thing.  I am alone and struggling, we don't have a full time priest and our parish is very very aged.
How can I not be discouraged?  Please say  a prayer that I find some peace and healing, and soon.  My kids need me.

Lord, please help your servant find the peace which we pray for in the Liturgy!

St. Juliana Lazarevo, pray to Christ our God for His handmaiden, for you, as a pious housewife, know all her afflictions.
