When God gives us a burden to pray for something or somebody we will feel that our hearts are drawn very heavily with compassion towards somebody or some cause. God gives me different burdens each day for all kinds of things, since saying intercession prayers is my main calling. The main burdens for me are people whose faith is truly been tested beyond measure and they are just barely hanging on in believing in God that He truly cares. I remember one of my prayers was ‘don’t let one Christian martyr be lost to Satan.’ I felt the power of God and His strong and urgent wish to accomplish that prayer. I knew all things were possible to God in that moment. I was so sorry that my faith is no way near as strong as it should be. Because from that experience I realised we can do so much, because God is on our side. The problem is our very small faith needs a lot of work. I also believe if you want more faith you have to just keep asking for more and He will give it. I see Him with so much more affection today than I did eighteen months ago.
I love Him very much more now and so it will be with you if you keep going forward. I have grown and understand more about Him and it will continue to the end of my days. I have been a very slow learner and I asked God one day why with all my visions I am not where I should be, and He told me it was because of my pride. That doesn’t come as a shock to me, because I can see plenty of it and it is something I am praying real hard for God to do something about. I have been promised that He will. It doesn’t mean it is going to come easy, I will have to do my part, but I know the outcome will be that I will learn to overcome it with God’s help. Suffering always humbles you, providing you rely on God to get you through. I remember St. John of the Cross words on the matter and he said the quickest way to learn to be humble is to be humiliated. So it is never easy.
Catholic and Protestant should Listen to One Another
Like I always keep preaching God talks to both the Protestants and Catholics alike. Are we willing to listen to what God is talking to the other churches or will we be stuck up! As a Catholic I don’t see much preaching on the importance of praying in tongues amongst Catholics. Though of course I know there are Catholics out there such as myself that is open enough to hear what Jesus is teaching to the Protestants. When I pray in tongues I am now finding it a very difficult thing to do, because the novelty has worn off. I keep at it because I know that it is what God wants of me. God works through each and every one of us as an individual. So God knows what works most affectedly on one of His children, wouldn’t work so well on another. Many parents have worked that out by raising their own children, that God has been gracious enough to give them. God is telling you something here. The way Jesus keeps me strong enough to continue with praying in tongues, is that He lets me hear an English word over and over again, the rest I would not understand at all. I like to know what is being said, but with tongues for most of us we do not know, for our own good.
Now when Protestants are willing to listen to what Jesus is saying to the Catholics, one of the prayers He is asking us to do most urgently is ‘The Chaplet of Divine Mercy.’ This prayer shouldn’t be a problem for the Protestants to say, because not one word of Mary is mention, except at the very beginning of the prayer, after the Apostle creed and the Lord’s Prayer. Which I omitted for the sakes of the Protestants. I would love teach the importance of saying the Rosary to them but that is a hard one. With ‘The Chaplet of Divine Mercy’ it would be very useful for you to have rosary beads. The rosary beads act as a counter and when you are saying the same prayer over and over again it helps you to concentrate. Some people mistakenly think that if you say the same prayer over and over again you are guilty of babbling. It really depends. If you are declaring something positive over and over again, the prayer was heard the first time, but the more you say it, the more powerfully you will receive it. For example if you say one Lord’s Prayer that is excellent, the prayer is extremely powerful, but say it many times and see what happens? With these prayers you not only asking for a favour, but you are also praising God and declaring that He is Sovereign.
And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
I believe without a doubt, because the Holy Bible is a spiritual book we need the Holy Spirit well and truly to understand it. We judge by human standards and we cannot understand the things of the Spirit in our flesh. I believe most people don’t pray and when they do they should be praying with a very humble heart so that God will give them understanding of what He is actually saying. Jesus when He walked the earth was more times than not misunderstood, because people would interrupt everything He said on a human level of thinking. I am writing this prayer out for those who are interested in saying it and have no other way of receiving it. You can offer it up for anything that you know that God would consent to, which is all things that give Him glory.
On the first and every eleventh prayer you say this prayer;
Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Thy Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.
The next ten beads you say;
For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
You do this five times in a row, so when you have finished that you have said ‘For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.’ All told fifty times and the other prayer ten times.
When you finished all that you then say ‘Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal one, have mercy on us and on the whole world.’ Three times.
It is a Very Powerful Prayer
You can offer this prayer up for everything. I have just offer it up this morning that Jesus would be let out of his cage. The urge Jesus is communicating into our hearts, to give Him glory by doing His deeds on earth so that all people can recognised Him in us, will happen very soon I believe. Jesus is a prisoner in our hearts for most people at the moment. But God is freeing more and more people as they turn to Him with faith. So many of us have been so hurt by others it has paralysed us. If we keep praying for Jesus to be set free in us, we will see the fruits of our prayers. We are moving in a new era where we are going to see the kingdom of darkness like never before, but also Jesus Kingdom of Light like never before. And we all know Jesus has already won.
What is going on now, God is looking at who will be faithful to Him as to those who will betray Him. Most will betray Him only to come back to Him, after much trial from those who remain faithful to Him. Remember at the cross, all of Jesus disciples abandon Him except one. St. John stay at the cross with Jesus’s Mother and a few other women. But after the Resurrection the disciples returned and they then bravely spread the Gospel and were willing to die for Him in the end. I personally believe something like that is going to happen again. Jesus saved us through offering His sufferings to God the Father on our behalf and we are to do the same, because we are following Jesus all the way to Calvary and then to the Resurrection and many will be saved because of it. If Jesus didn’t die for us, our sufferings we would not be even be able to save our own soul, never alone save somebody else’s. If we unite our suffering with Jesus it does have redemptive power. This was Our Heavenly Fathers plan. We become another Christ through the precious Cross of Jesus. We become equal heir with Jesus. Talk about generosity.
