A Strong Catholic Prayer in Your Time of Financial Difficulties

 
These prayers in times of financial difficulties can serve as a reminder that, although, in the words of a Cyndi Lauper song “money changes everything,” in our faith, it isn’t the only thing that matters, not by a long shot!

Dear Lord,

Help me find firm ground in this shaky economy.

As I seek work and assistance,

Give me strength not to be anxious when I seem to be going nowhere;

Give me patience not to despair when things look bleak;

Give me serenity to know you are here with me, helping me to carry my crosses each day;

So that I may do Your will,

For the salvation of souls

And my Eternal Life.

Keep me calm when tempers flare up;

Keep me sane in a crazy world;

Keep me focused on the houses in Heaven

rather than the houses of cards collapsing around me;

Keep my eyes focused on the prize of Heaven

and not lose hope in You in this world or in the world to come;

Make me compassionate in dealing with others;

Let me see my travails as carrying my cross and sharing in Your Passion, for the love of You and for the salvation of souls, including mine.

And may all my difficulties be ultimately for my good and Your glory.

Amen.

 

Our Father

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

 

Hail Mary

Hail Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed are thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus. Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death Amen.

Glory Be

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
