Prayer is Very Powerful

Not everybody is in a position to help many different types of people in all situations. Prayer is powerful and you can pray for everybody in all different situations. For example you might grieve very strongly about people who are caught in the sex traffic, but are no way in a position to help. Most of us can’t help others physically, but we sure can pray for them.

When you hear of bad news you can always pray for the people or animal, or country’s concern. Sometimes God is happy with a quick short prayer and at other times He wants you to pray long and hard for months and sometimes for years over it. He places such a heavy burden on your heart that you need to pray for them. If you don’t have a burden pray for one and He will give you one or two or more.

One thing I love about prayer it is versatile. You are limited in your help physically but never spiritually. You can’t help the whole world, but you can pray for the whole world. Many people think their prayers are not powerful. They would be so surprise to find out, they are extremely powerful and God is waiting for them to help out, through their prayers. God’s way of answering prayers I find are usually different from what I expect. He always has a better plan. For example I got a burden for animals that are dumped and on T.V. that night the media reported about a female dog that was  pregnant and dumped and was then looked after. I find that happens over and over again. At first I thought it wasn’t related to my prayers, but it kept happening and then I finally said it was an answer to my prayers. And you will too be surprise how often that happens, once you start saying prayers for other people. And of course others know better than me how true this is.  

We must pray all the time, every chance we can get. And offer up our days for people and different things that God has placed on our heart.

James 5:16. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

Don’t mistake a righteous person to be somebody who doesn’t fail God from time to time, but rather somebody who seeks to please God with all their heart.

Mark 11:24. “Whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

 

 

A prayer Claiming back what was stolen

In the most precious Blood and Name of Jesus I claim back everything Satan has stolen from me, from the beginning of time, seven fold return for the glory and praise of your name.

Jesus has told me to pray it. Not only do we receive what has been stolen from us, Jesus can re own what was lost in us too. You don’t have to word the prayer the way I did, you can do it the way it has more meaning for you.

You will be Given Mercy if You are Merciful to others

Matthew 5:7-8.  “Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.”

isPLLWHJ3SGod will give us mercy at the measure we give mercy to others. There are plenty of times we want to help people, but are out of our reach to do so. We can still help and give up some offering, whether it is donations to a charity that helps the people God has put into our hearts to help or some act of self-denial to back up our prayers. There are great needs everywhere, for example children caught up in the sex trade could do with your help. Even praying for them for five minutes a day or better still say the rosary for them. God does answer prayers, especially if we keep it up. I often pray for God to stop abortions and God told me one day that many babies haven’t been aborted because of me praying for them. I have prayed for them for about eight years. So you see you can still help.

A woman by the name of Gabrielle Bossis went past a brothel and her heart went out to them and Jesus said to her ‘how many times have I told you when you can’t enter, your prayers enter.’ It is important to remember you will receive mercy if you give it. Not long ago I went through a crisis of not believing I will go to heaven if I die. I believed everybody else would, but not me. God brought to my attention because of an act of mercy to someone, giving them hope when they really need it, God gave me hope and let me know that I was fine with Him. You don’t know when you are going to need mercy from God, because of a crisis you find yourself in. Your faith may not always be strong enough. It is necessary to show mercy to others, for the glory of God and for our salvation. God said in Exodus 33:19……. I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.

So not everybody receives mercy, because they did not give it. Children who are tortured every day by being sexual insulted needs our prayers as so many other people do. Let’s not be selfish and start praying for people who are in hopeless situations. We would like to know other people are praying for us when we are in a crisis wouldn’t we?

 

 

A Prayer to the Holy Spirit

is(16)Holy Spirit, Holy Spirit wake me up to your great love and kindness. Fill me with Your Mercy and Wisdom. Fill me with your tenderness and care, fill me with yourself and anoint me with your oil. Help me to trim the wick of my lamp, so that I can burn more brightly with Your presence. May You set me on fire with Your love and mercy. Fill me with a loving light that shows the way to the heart of Christ. Make me Yours completely, so that I can resemble Christ my Lord and Bridegroom.

Holy Spirit fill me with Your power to change me into the perfect Bride of Christ. Holy Spirit have compassion on me and make me new in Christ. Deepen our relationship with one another. A beautiful intimate union with each other. Blow away all my sins, toss them into the sea of Your mercy. Blow all chains and strongholds that are offensive to You and that are keeping me back.

Teach me Your ways, all of them, so I can become pleasing to You. Free me Oh Holy Spirit from all evil ways. I want to be made whole in Your Spirit. Make me pleasing to the Father, so that He won’t regret making me. Throw Your arms around me and protect me from pride and selfishness. Holy Spirit fill me with your eternal self and fill me with Your power to be changed in the True Image of God Almighty.

Keep my eyes on Jesus, don’t let my eyes become blind, but instead see the wonderful beauty of my God. Watch over me. I can be very stubborn and I so long to be Yours forever and forever more. Fill me with all Your fruits and gifts, so that I become another Christ, fill me with your meekness and graciousness, make my soul beautiful by being ever so present and united with me.  Amen.

Note

I don’t usually pray to the Holy Spirit that much, I usually pray to Jesus, but I know the only way to get to know the Holy Spirit is start talking to Him. When I finished the prayer I thought other people may like it, but wasn’t sure so I rang my friend and asked what she thought about it and said to post it, so I am now doing that. I hope it brings you closer to the Holy Spirit as it did me.

Two Beautiful Prayers

Two Beautiful Prayers

Oh most rich treasury of all virtues, how greatly do I rejoice  that thee alone, and through Thee, flows every good; and that all in comparison of thy perfection is as nothing! I thank Thee, Lord, for this and for all other good gifts, which Thou hast  Bestowed upon ….. Remember, Lord, my poverty and my  Sore need of all … virtues!

 Another beautiful prayer.

How great O Sovereign Lord of all, be it my inward joy the knowledge that without Thee I can do nothing, and that Thou art the first and chief Worker in all good things that I do.

I got these beautiful prayers from a book called ‘Spiritual Combat’ by Dom Lorenzo Scupoli. From Sophia Institute Press. St. Francis de Sales, carried this book in his pocket for 18 years. The first prayer is for when you admire somebodies virtues, and to remind you not to put the person’s virtue higher than God.  I also use it for my favourite saints including Mary our Mother. I changed the second prayer a bit, which is something I do a lot with prayers that I like.

 

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.

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.
