    Dear St. Margaret of Clitheroe
    I ask you to intercede on my behalf and ask God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit to assist me with my struggling business and make it successful.
    I have been struggling with my business for the past three years, when I started my business I did not have any debts now I am in debt beyond your wildest dreams. Additionally, I do not own a house and would like to be able to purchase a house. I am the youngest of my parents three children and my eldest brother in incarcerated and my older sister is mentally ill therefore, I am carrying both of them I have been able to manage so far for the past several years but now I am getting discouraged and depressed because the struggle is getting harder each day. i am grateful for each day and all that I have so far I have health and strength. however, I am asking everyone to pray for me that if it is Gods will that I will be able to overcome these financial struggles and make a success of my business and eventually be able to own a home of my own. i ask these things in his name Lord Jesus christ.

    Pray for both the catholics who were born into the faith and for those whom will be entering the catholic church on Easter Vigil. May we forever be on the path of conversion towards the Lord our God. May we look to those you have fallen for the love the church that Christ built.

    St. Margaret of Clitherow, pray for me today, as I am eager to sort out an ammendment, which is needed to correct an exam entry code. Help me get the understanding and support of the school authorities. Please be there at the meeting to help reduce the heat, and increase the peace. I also need your prayers in the planning of my departement, to give justice to the more hardworking and deserving member of the team. Intercede on behalf of all sick children. Free them from all behavioural problems that hinder their learning. Please find a medical cure for children born with fragile X. Please have pity on them and their suffering parents.Amen.

    Have read elsewhere that Saint Margaret's maiden name was Middleton. Is she related to Kate Middleton?
