A Crusade Prayer Said before the Rosary

isPLLWHJ3SO Queen of the Holy Rosary, thou didst deign to come to Fatima to reveal to the three shepherd children the treasures of Grace hidden in the Rosary. Inspire my heart with a sincere love of this devotion, in order that by meditating on the Mysteries of our Redemption, which are recalled in it. I may be enriched by its fruits and obtain peace in the world, the conversion of sinners and of Russia, and the Graces, which I ask of thee in this Rosary. (Here mention your request).

I ask this for the greater glory of God, for thine own honour, and for the good of souls, especially for my own.

The Crusade of Prayer

I got this prayer from a book called ‘The Crusade of Prayer’. Maria Divine Mercy was given this prayer by Mary and Jesus and so are all the other prayers in the book.

It took three years after my conversion to the Catholic Faith before I had the courage, to discipline myself to say the rosary regularly. And even then it was off and on. I had a very guilty conscious over it, but still couldn’t bring myself around to saying it every day. I know there are others in a similar boat to me. This prayer is ideal for you, because after I said it a number of times I now have a love of the Rosary like never before. I say the Scriptural Rosary. And I know Jesus really loves the Scriptural Rosary, because once while saying it He appeared with great happiness over me saying it. I found the Scriptural Rosary over the internet after a great deal of searching. I like the simple version the best. I can’t say it every day, but I hate it when I can’t. The Crusade Prayers have a special blessing on them from God. And they are mostly prayers for the end days and preparing us for the second coming of Jesus. I believe you can get this book on the internet.

The Body of Christ

is(10)When we reflect on the human body we all agree the body is a marvel of God’s creativity. We wouldn’t want our bodies to be missing an organ or a foot or an eye etc. We want a healthy body, so that we are not sick or disabled in any way.

Romans 12:4-5

For just as we have many members in one body, but all the parts do not have the same function, in this way, we the many , are one body in Messiah, but each one part of one another.

The sad thing about many Christians we can be snobs at times. Thinking our work in the body of Christ is more important than anyone else. Many Church leaders like to think they have the most important jobs and therefore they are the most important people. Jesus says ‘the least is the highest and the highest is the least.’ We all need one another. Until we come to that conclusion I believe we get in our own way and everybody else’s. I believe also church leaders job is to ask God for discernment so they can discern what each person gifts are in their congregation and encourage them to use it. We all need some encouragement, including the church leaders.

Some church leaders though like to think it is their church and they should make all the decisions without asking for advice. If God sends them a messenger or a message not to their liking they should welcome the message with thanksgiving and not get angry about it. Because if the message comes from God, what difference does it make who the messenger is. Nobody took Jesus seriously for a while they said ‘isn’t he the son of Joseph…. In other words he is just a carpenter, who does he think he is? God chooses what the world considers foolish to humble the proud. The best qualification you have in serving God has been said to have absolutely no qualifications at all. In that way everybody will know it was God working through that person and not the person who did it. Church leaders should know that better than anybody else.

Life is made up of little things and quiet often it is the little things that hold the bigger things together. You need nails, screws and etc. to build houses. Without these little things you wouldn’t have the luxuries we do have. Same with the gifts God gives us. If you don’t see everybody is equal in the eyes of God you are not going to grow in your gift. It might be even taken away until you learn this lesson. What the world calls people who they think are insignificant in their eyes are not insignificant in the eyes of God. God loves us all equally. One is not more important than another, nor loved more than another.

Prayer for Daily Neglects

isEternal Father, I offer Thee the Sacred Heart of Jesus, with all its Love, all its sufferings and all it Merits.

First – to expiate all the sins I have committed this day and during all my life. Glory be to the Father and to the Son …!

Second – to purify the good I have done badly this day and during all my life. Glory be …..!

Third – To supply for the good I ought to have done, and that I have neglected this day and during all my life. Glory be ….!

A poor Clare nun, who had just died appeared to her abbess and said to her, ‘I went straight to heaven, for by means of this prayer, recited every evening, I paid my debts.

I say this prayer Eternal Father,… one on each of the other prayers, but that is just my choice. I just feel it is even more powerful that is all. I hope you enjoy saying it, because it tends to lift your spirits after you have said it.

 

The Remnant of the Orthodox Catholic Church

is2C12MD3ZThose who are faithful to the Traditional and True teachings of the Orthodox Catholic Church are being persecuted within the church itself. We need to pray for one another not only to be strong enough to endure persecution, but to have a true heart and mind of God over the matter. We know the true church of God will triumph over evil in the end. That God is fully in control despite of what it looks like to many people. Don’t hate the enemies of God, but pray for their conversion. Be patient till the end and we will be rewarded unimaginably so. We are at war with Satan and Jesus has already won the war. It is a time of testing who will leave Him, through cowardliness or indifference of His sacrifice for them. Pray for the children that they will know the truth about what is from God and what is coming from the enemy the devil. The church will be restored to greater glory than before. It is a promised from God Himself. Meanwhile we must fight the good fight to the end with love and courage and pray for one another, for it is urgent. Many do not know what Catholics are supposed to believe in anymore.

Immaculate Heart’s Flame of Love prayer for Souls in Purgatory

Mary has told Elizbeth Kindelmann while she was alive to spread the devotion of the Immaculate Heart’s Flame of Love Rosary, which you will find amongst the early articles that I wrote. Another short prayer that can be said with the promise it will blind Satan is.

Flood the whole human race with grace from Your Flame of love now and in the hour of our death.

Another prayer Mary has asked us to pray is one Hail Mary during November and it will release ten souls from purgatory any other month you need to say three Hail Mary’s to release one soul from purgatory. So since it is November this is the time to really get start praying it. Not only are we helping souls that no longer can help themselves, but when they arrive in heaven do you think they are going to forget us? They will pray for us until we have arrive to heaven also, out of gratitude.  Love reigns in heaven and gratitude is an expression of love as we all know. So please pray for them.

It is the Little Things

isZTIQ1EJFTo love one another as Christ loves us, we first need to be healed of our emotional wounds through prayer, but love most of all. If we learn not to look at the sin of the person, but instead look at the wounded Christ in that person who is hurting us, it makes things a whole lot easier to forgive. There is a saying ‘hurting people hurt.’ I believe that is true. Not everybody can handle it that well and some seem to be a target more than others, of being hurt by the majority of people than others. I feel they have a very special calling once they have learnt to forgive and love their neighbour. There is a song and one of its line is ‘don’t judge the wounded.’ I bet we are all saying yes to that one, in other words don’t judge me I am wounded. But only too often both parties are judging one another and both have been wounded very deeply. So it is a vicious circle. Only God can fix it. And He does through love and accepting our prayers and sometimes fasting is needed.

If we try to remember Christ lives in us and He is a part of everything we do, we would be more careful how to act and treat one another. It is always easy said than done, but as Christians it is what God expects of us. Evil deeds spread and so do good deeds. Little acts of kindness can be the things that touch people’s hearts the most. I think because they are so little and we are all in such a hurry we don’t do them. But they make a big difference in relating with one another. There is another saying ‘it is the little things that make or break a marriage.’ So it shows us how important the little thoughtful gestures can be. They are not so little in truth. And it is something we all can do. Big things maybe not, but the very little things can melt peoples heart with softness and love. And so there is healing for both parties.

Not everybody is going to respond in a kind manner, but with many prayers and persistence, I think you win more people over that way. Because we all want to be appreciated despite of our faults. I am still learning and it is after all a life time lesson, because there is never an end to love. Love grows and grows to great heights if we are all game and willing to learn enough. I am learning so much from one of my friend’s example. She sees only the best in people most of the time and is very thoughtful of showing kindness in small ways to strangers as well as to her friends. There is nothing like learning from somebodies example.

Romans12:9. Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good.

1 Peter 4:8. Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.

 

Trust Him as a Small Child

Have you ever thought of making up your own songs and singing them to our Lord like you did when you were a small child. It doesn’t have to be any good, because our proud Heavenly Father is going to love them. It will bring you much closer to God and often God will give you new revelations about Him, if it is done in a childlike faith and love. When we try out new ways of loving Him, we get rewarded by God. God often will heal the heart and give you a sense of freedom, joy and closeness to Him. When we learn to rest in His love, we are then free of worrying; worrying about the present and the future.

I had difficulty in understanding what it meant to rest in the Lord once. But after a lot of searching and praying I realised when we rest in the Lord, we are simply leaning on Him with trust and faith. Just like a small child leans on His father for protection and love. When we let go of all our worries and just turn to God for help, knowing He is strong enough and wise enough to look after us in every detail. Then we can rest, because we are handing over the reins of control to God. All we have to do is believe, trust and obey and then God will do the rest.

Childlike trust how liberating is that? You can never trust God enough. The more we do it the more we will see His powerful hand working for us. God is good and just so we know He is capable of doing the miraculous in our lives. We don’t have to worry about anything, but pray and do what is before us to do and then wait on Him. So much responsibility is taken off our shoulders when we gladly do His Will and not ours. When we now no longer strive to be in control, gives us rest and peace in the Lord.

Isaiah 26:4.  Trust in the Lord forever, for in the Lord is everlasting strength.

Proverbs 29:25. The fear of man brings a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe.

Purgatory on Earth

I have heard a story one day about this man who was dying, was asked I think by his guardian angel, if he wanted to do his purgatory on earth or in purgatory itself. The guardian angel told him he would do three years in purgatory. The man chose to go to purgatory. After a while he wondered why he was still in purgatory, because he believed he had done his three years, but was told he had only done three days. Then the man realised how good God was to him in is illness on earth. Another story was a person was in purgatory for eight years and said it felt like thousands and thousands of years. Time in purgatory goes so slowly, because of the suffering they have to endure. Mary comes to comfort them on her feast days and also on Saturdays. Most people apparently spend about twenty or thirty years in purgatory.

I personally prefer to do my purgatory on earth. I hate suffering and I think it is far better to do it on earth, because in the long run the time here goes quicker. And suffering here is less painful in the long run and you get rewarded for doing it here, not so in purgatory. We should be so much more grateful for Jesus for what he went through for us. People left behind after the rapture takes place, will have to do their purgatory on earth without the reward. They are simply going to be purified and made holy, which is a great blessing in itself. They are going to receive God’s mercy but there is also going to be God’s justice. It is going to be the most exciting time in their lives as well as the hardest times in their lives. They are going to see and perform greater miracles that has ever been seen in this world and they will be greater than the works Jesus did, which Jesus speaks of it in the Gospel. The video ‘small still voice,’ Jesus has told Clare about the miracles and a prophet I think Maria Divine Mercy spoke about facing purgatory on earth. The other stories come from other video shows or books that I have read in the past.

 

Weakness Turned into an Access

When I was young I found out the subjects at school that I was good at, I couldn’t teach others that well. I even had problems being patient with them. Reason being I couldn’t see why they didn’t get it. What I also found out was the subjects I had difficulty learning were the subjects I was very good at teaching and had super patience teaching it, because I knew why they were not getting it. It is the same with virtues. You can help others to overcome weakness, because you have. Jesus never sin but He overcame weakness for our sakes so He could help us.

Hebrews 2:1Since He Himself has gone through suffering and testing, He is able to help us when we are being tested.

I have had great problems with forgiveness. It got that way I had to learn to forgive people for being human, because the whole human race is cruel and indifferent to the sufferings of others. We know that is true especially in this generation. It is ‘all about me’ generation. ‘Walk over anybody who gets in the way’ generation. When I finally found out there was good in people and that took a couple of decades, and when I found out that we are not fighting flesh but demons, things started to really turn around for me. I knew I had to learn to forgive others before I could please God and hope to be forgiven for my own trespasses. But it can be easy said than done. After a lot of prayers and searching for reasons to forgive others I am nearly there. I still need a little work in that area but I am much happier now. I can now see reasons to love strangers, that once I was too frighten to love, because of their continue judgement of me.

We Are All Have been Hurt

It is so true what God said to Samuel. Men judges by outward appearance whereas God judges by what is in their hearts. If people want to be loved by others, it helps to love first, because everybody is hurting and protecting themselves. I am finding out the obvious. We are all hurting and we all have different ways of handling it. Some good and some not so good. Not everybody has the opportunity to know Christ because of their background. If we don’t show love to one another, how are they going to know we are Jesus disciples. That we belong to Him. Healing is a must and only God can go so deep within us and heal the cause of our pain. We need to know God’s love for us is real and that Christ is in those who serve Him. By letting Him out. Let people see your tender side, show people you care and hand out a few genuine complements. Don’t just think how good and kind somebody is let them know you appreciate them. Little by little with much prayer we all get there. But when we start calling on God to heal us in a supernatural way (faith healing) the process is so much quicker.

Opening Up to God

is(7)The more you open up to God and just love Him the more you will see visible signs of His love and healing. First seek His kingdom and then all shall be given to you. You know for yourself when somebody wants something from you and so they flatter you and do you favours, it is no more than a business deal. It doesn’t impress you one bit. The same with God. God knows if a person is only praising Him to get something from Him, but if you first seek Him, then all things shall be given you. God wants a loving relationship from us first and then He is moved to give us our hearts desire, if it is pure and holy. We will receive the measure we give out. If we make sacrifices to God especially kindness to others, God is deeply touched by this and we will get our hearts desire if we do it for His sake and not for our own. Look very closely at why you do things and others. Sometimes we think we are being kind and virtuous when we are not. True virtue is when you forget yourself and your whole reason for doing things is to please and love God. That person’s prayers are so wonderful and exceedingly powerful, because of it. And people come to know God through their acts of love and kindness.

The Burden of Prayer

We all have favourite verses in the Bible that helps us through. One of my favourite verse is ‘In your strength we can crush an army; with our God we can scale any wall.’ I like the event when Israel was in trouble, God sent an angel out to destroy a whole army by himself. And another event took place, when the musician went out in front and three very large armies killed one another so there was no one left in their army to kill. There are some very beautiful events that took place written in the Bible that encourages you to put your complete trust in God. He always comes to your rescue if you turn to Him in obedience. We are never alone, though we may think so at times. It is good to pray for a burden. When God gives you a weight on your shoulders to pray for a particular group of people. He has given me a burden to pray for Christian Martyrs. I feel very deeply about them and I hope and pray that they will receive all the graces they need to keep their faith up and receive the crown of eternal life.

I once prayed to God ‘who do I pray for the most?’ and the answer I was given was ‘I pray for all the Jobs in the world.’ Job was somebody God had to purify so that he would be even closer to the Lord. The devil really attacked him with everything he had, but Job eventually past the test and became a better man then before the devil attacked him. What is your burden? It is important to have one at least. If you don’t have any ask God for one and He will definitely give you one. It could be the unborn babies, single mothers, orphans, criminals and your country. There is so many people in need of help. Not all are called to preach, but we all can put aside some time for prayer. The greatest reward is knowing you are helping somebody that otherwise you couldn’t. God always answers prayers that are holy. And you know you are relieving God’s heart of pain. Because God hates seeing people being cruel to one another. He wants to help, but if we don’t pray, God respects our free will, he won’t interfere if there is nobody going to pray for them. God won’t take away our free will doesn’t matter how badly we use it. So we need to pray for the love we have for each other and for the love we have for God.
