Lord, Hear Our Prayers

For my cousin, Bianca, my uncle who is suffering with dementia, the strength and steadfastness of my father. For love and compassion for all those who struggle with poverty or sickness. For my children, that they may ask themselves daily: "How may I serve mankind?" and seek an answer to that question. That I may be of service to others and find abundance in my service so that I may give to others and be able to financially support my family. That God may show me the direction I must go in with my marriage, although we are legally divorced, I know my faith says I am still married and I need God to lead me and speak to me on what he would have me to do and place that desire in both of our hearts so that we may be chaste, honest, loving, supportive, respectful and treat one another as Christ looks upon the Church.

I hope it's not too late for me to ask for prayers for this. During the annual evaluation at work, I indicated to my boss that I'm interested in participating in the company's trade shows. It would give me the first hand experience to see how it works from the perspective of the organizers and suppliers. (I have attended similar shows before, but not for work and from the buyer side). It could also provide me with products and industry trends to look into. My boss said that this can be considered depending on the budget the company provides for how many employees are asked to attend. I would like to ask for prayers that if this would be good for me (and if God wants to), I would be asked to participate in the show this April. I know the few days that are spent there would be very hectic, but I really want all these things. There's still time, and it's not that far off. Thank you for the prayers.

Please pray for my daughter who has depression, anxiety, anger and is dealing with stress in her job. She is trying to find another job, and she desperately needs God's help to do this. She has been hospitalized in the past for mental breakdowns. I fear that this will happen again if she cannot get out of this stressful situation. Thank you for praying for her. May God bless you.
