Prayer: WOW!!! I love to pray. I love ‘talking’ to God. He LOVES hearing from us. Understand… if we’re talking to Jesus, then we’re NOT talking to the evil one. Prayer is a very major part of my life… not just my spiritual life, but my entire life. Sometimes… even, I get a sense of what it must feel like being a monk.
Allow me, please… to SHARE with you… this prayer. I penned this prayer, especially for this occasion, to give an idea of how we can ‘talk to God,’ for those who need a little help in that area. Please try saying this prayer…. Pray it with a “sincere… and committed… heart.” I suggest that you ‘talk to Jesus,’ exactly how you might if He were sitting beside you. Just have an ‘open and frank’ discussion about, exactly… ‘what’s on your mind.’ Jesus is ‘all ears.’
Remember: Even Jesus prayed to His Father in Heaven. Matthew 6:9-13 – “This, then, is how you should pray: “‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’
….A Prayer of Thanksgiving: ……..O’ Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One…. have mercy on our Soul. Thank You, Dear Jesus… for dying on the Cross for us… so that we might have life-everlasting with You, O’ Lord. Forgive us of our sins… especially those that we cannot now remember. Help us to amend our life, to atone for our sins… and to navigate your wonderful Gift… of earthly life, according to Your Will. Thank You for all of our worldly gifts, for our health, our families, and our friends. Help us to be an instrument of Your Peace, a conduit of Your Love, and a Servant to all of mankind. Guide us… such, Lord… that we might love others as we love ourselves. Help us Lord, to engage the Pureness of Your Heart. We love You Dear Jesus. Amen.
…Blessings.…to all… as we seek to have a ‘conversation with Jesus.’…cjlb… 1/31/2018
