Help us to heal those who are broken in body or spirit, and to turn their sorrow into joy. Grant this, Father, for the love of your Son, who for
our sake became poor, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.



  1. I am 62 & live paycheck to paycheck. My car broke down & I was fired because I could not get to work. My car that I had in 1999, finally gave out. I bought another car with all of my savings. That car overheated & I brought it to a repair shop & they ruined the engine. I do not have any more money to buy a third car. My son is trying to fix the car for me. But has not been able to find out what is wrong. I now have no income coming in & my rent will be due in a few weeks. Please pray that we can find a way to fix my car, so I can find another job. I know this sounds mundane but I am 62 & am close to being homeless. Thank you for your prayers.
