    its hard right now... just keep praying, it will change I promise. The peace of Christ will come to you at work and carry you more and more each day until everything around doesn't affect you. Psalm 91 comes to mind.

    Psalm 91Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)
    91 A psalm of a canticle on the sabbath day.

    2 It is good to give praise to the Lord: and to sing to thy name, O most High.

    3 To shew forth thy mercy in the morning, and thy truth in the night:

    4 Upon an instrument of ten strings, upon the psaltery: with a canticle upon the harp.

    5 For thou hast given me, O Lord, a delight in thy doings: and in the works of thy hands I shall rejoice.

    6 O Lord, how great are thy works! thy thoughts are exceeding deep.

    7 The senseless man shall not know: nor will the fool understand these things.

    8 When the wicked shall spring up as grass: and all the workers of iniquity shall appear: That they may perish for ever and ever:

    9 But thou, O Lord, art most high for evermore.

    10 For behold thy enemies, O Lord, for behold thy enemies shall perish: and all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.

    11 But my horn shall be exalted like that of the unicorn: and my old age in plentiful mercy.

    12 My eye also hath looked down upon my enemies: and my ear shall hear of the downfall of the malignant that rise up against me.

    13 The just shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow up like the cedar of Libanus.

    14 They that are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of the house of our God.

    15 They shall still increase in a fruitful old age: and shall be well treated,

    16 That they may shew, That the Lord our God is righteous, and there is no iniquity in him.

    Psalm 90 is also good.

    Psalm 90Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)
    90 The praise of a canticle for David. He that dwelleth in the aid of the most High, shall abide under the protection of the God of Jacob.

    2 He shall say to the Lord: Thou art my protector, and my refuge: my God, in him will I trust.

    3 For he hath delivered me from the snare of the hunters: and from the sharp word.

    4 He will overshadow thee with his shoulders: and under his wings thou shalt trust.

    5 His truth shall compass thee with a shield: thou shalt not be afraid of the terror of the night.

    6 Of the arrow that flieth in the day, of the business that walketh about in the dark: of invasion, or of the noonday devil.

    7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand: but it shall not come nigh thee.

    8 But thou shalt consider with thy eyes: and shalt see the reward of the wicked.

    9 Because thou, O Lord, art my hope: thou hast made the most High thy refuge.

    10 There shall no evil come to thee: nor shall the scourge come near thy dwelling.

    11 For he hath given his angels charge over thee; to keep thee in all thy ways.

    12 In their hands they shall bear thee up: lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

    13 Thou shalt walk upon the asp and the basilisk: and thou shalt trample under foot the lion and the dragon.

    14 Because he hoped in me I will deliver him: I will protect him because he hath known my name.

    15 He shall cry to me, and I will hear him: I am with him in tribulation, I will deliver him, and I will glorify him.

    16 I will fill him with length of days; and I will shew him my salvation.

    Thank you for your prayers and hugs SOLADY. I am happy to help any way I can. BTW I am going to Medjugorje in a month, so if you like you can write a request for Our Lady, I will print it off without reading it put it in an envelope, and be sure it goes in with the other letters before Our Ladies feet during the apparition.

    God Bless, Good Success, and Ave Maria

    I have found that praying for those who persecute us is devastatingly powerful

    Dear Solady,

    A good friend of mine payed this for two men who were making her husband's job a nightmare. These men were his supervisors....they were evil. She, worried for her husband, would take her son's out for daily walks and while out, she would pray the Divine Mercy prayer for both of them....repeatedly....:

    If you say this prayer, with a contrite heart and with faith, on behalf of some sinner I will give that soul the grace of conversion”.

    "O Blood and water that gushed forth from the heart of Jesus, as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You”.

    In time, things turned around for her husband and he is now the manager of this business and these men are no longer involved with him. Actually, one of these men has passed away and her prayers might have saved his soul.
    This wife who prayed for these men is still haunted by how evil these men were, but she knew what God wanted for this situation was prayer. Her faithfulness changed everything.

    Try it...God knows these people need prayer.

    I am deeply amazed to read this. My husband works in a small set up with major contracts and the workload is cruel, all made worse by his boss who has very anti-Christian values. I have always been my husband's support, but of late, struggling with my own difficulties, I must say I got tired of carrying his burdens as well, especially because I feel he's not relying enough on God, but more on himself.

    But today, just minutes ago, questioning my selfishness, I looked at my statue of OL of Fatima, and on an impulse, asked Mother to take my heart under Her mantle and put a prayer for my husband into it. And there you are with, O Blood and water that gushed forth from the heart of Jesus, as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You.

    A big thank you from me, Beth B.

    what a wonderful gesture. i would like to send our lady these words;

    at Fatima your presence to three lil Shepherd children changed their lives,
    o blessed mother Mary, ever virgin, intercede in all our cries!
    mother of divine grace, mother most pure, drop down dew from heaven to renew all our strength in you!

    A Cruz Sagrada seja a minha luz. Não seja o dragão meu guia. RETIRA-TE, satanás! Nunca me atente com coisas vãs. O que me oferece é do mal Beba o teu próprio veneno!

    thank you sorrowful heart my prayers go out to you in gratitude.

    I too believe this same truth. not only that i also notice that the bullies have a different look about them. their skin seems a bit worn and tattered and they have wolf or dog like eyebrows. i cant quite explain it. i noticed it in one of the men in our unit. his skin looked clammy. on thursdays we have out meetings and i noticed he was sitting in my usual spot. i was sort of forced to sit in his usual spot. i did not feel comfortable so i got up fast and moved down the conference table when that same man got up and offered me another chair (of course our manager had just walked in the room so it made the man look good) so then he took the chair i had previously taken and he put it in the back of the room stating that the chair had a broken leg! i turned back to see that the chair leg was indeed unstable and had i sat in it a minute longer i would have fallen to the floor! i think he planned it to happen! i say this because he pulled the chair to the back of the room as if already knowing it was broken otherwise why didnt he use it? its things like this that happen on a daily basis. sometimes my computer is shut down completely or my office chair is in another area and i have to hunt around for it. this same man is the one that sells burritos at work and i have noticed others becoming sick with the stomachache and missing work. its scary to think what he might be doing and who else is behind it. its like walking on eggshells or better yet a landmine!

    I think generally that there is often a difference in appearance and certainly in behaviour between those who pray regurally and those who do not. I think of the effects of regular prayer as being rather like and oil that keeps an engine running over ticking away smoothly. If there is no oil then the engine starts to raor and stutter and evenually breacks down (the main reason, I am convinced of the huge suicide rate is that people are not praiying)

    However the vast majority of people do not notice this difference. For people are generally much more materialistic than spiritual/mystical in the way they look at things. They from the outside in so to speak, whereas the spiritula person looks from the inside out, so to speak, as St Paul says:

    1 Corinthians 2:15
    Spiritual Wisdom
    …14The natural man does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God. For they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15The spiritual man judges all things, but he himself is not subject to anyone’s judgment. 16“For who has known the mind of the Lord, so as to instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ.…


    So if we are people of prayer we no longer judge by outward apperances , but , rather judge as God does:


    1 Samuel 16:7

    Samuel Anoints David as King
    …6When they entered, he looked at Eliab and thought, "Surely the LORD'S anointed is before Him." 7But the LORD said to Samuel, "Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him; for God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart." 8Then Jesse called Abinadab and made him pass before Samuel. And he said, "The LORD has not chosen this one either."…

    You poor thing, you are going through something terrible right now but the light on the horizon must be very close right now. When you are in a state of grace and your prayer life is strong I don't think they will get you too badly from now on. Like others say here, pray for those who persecute you, it could change things in their life's which may cause them to change themselves.

    I am confident God will answer your pleas one way or the other, especially if you also asked the blessed mother to assist you. From reading the happenings around you at work it seems the demonic has been at work, I do believe that it will be disbanded and before long or else a door will open for you to take another route. Try not to worry, take courage in the divine power which is on your side, from Christ, to St Michael to Our blessed Mother and many more. God Bless.
