Today we celebrate the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception! :) Say a Hail Mary or 50 if you get a moment! :)
"No matter how God answers this prayer, one thing is certain:
He will speed up the process of healing and make sure you get through your ordeal with as little emotional, psychological, and spiritual damage as possible.
And this guarantee doesn't apply to only the great cataclysmic misfortunes of life.
It works for the smaller "slings and arrows" of daily living as well.
You shouldn't wait for heart attacks or terminal illnesses or car accidents to ask for God's assistance.
You should say this prayer when you have a toothache; you should say this prayer when your annoying colleague at work won't stop talking to you; you should say this prayer when you're stuck in a traffic jam!
Whenever you have to face any kind of pain, you should say to God,
"Lord, please help me get through this."
And he will."

Stay Strong! :)
