Please say a prayer for me

I really could use a prayer or two for myself and a special intention for myself. I know it's kinda greedy to ask but I really need the help.

“Most holy apostle, St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the Church honors and invokes you universally, as the patron of hopeless cases, of things almost despaired of. Pray for me, I am so hopeless and alone. Make use I implore you, of that particular privilege given to you, to bring visible and speedy help where help is almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in this great need that I may receive the consolation and help of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations, and sufferings, particularly – (here make your request) and that I may praise God with you and all the elect forever. I promise, O blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, to always honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to you. Amen”

Saint Joseph A prayer for Hopeless cases. O Glorious St. Joseph, advocate of hopeless cases, what's impossible to me is not imposible to Thee. Thou knowest my special intentions. I implore Thee, please come to my aid in my present trouble and distress before Christmas. O dear St. Joseph, all my confidence in Thee. Let it not be said that I would invoke Thee in vain. St. Joseph, friend of the Sacred Heart, pray for us.

Holy Patroness of those in need, Saint Rita, you were humble, pure and patient. Your pleadings with your divine Son are irresistible, so please obtain for me from our risen Jesus the request I make of you: {mention your petition here}. Be kind to me for the greater glory of God, and I shall honor you and sing your praises forever. Glorious Saint Rita, you miraculously participated in the sorrowful passion of our Lord Jesus Christ. Obtain for me now the grace to suffer with resignation the troubles of life, and protect me in all my needs. Amen.

It's never too greedy to ask. Jesus said, "Ask and you shall receive" after all.
I'll pray for you and even toss in a Memorare for good measure :) Hope all will be well.

I love that people can blog about different things, good and bad. I also love being able to pray for people I know online even if I don't know them in person.

You will be in my prayers. I hope things get better or work out for you.
