Only in God Prayer Blog - 18 Feb 2021

Cf. Ps 54: 17-20, 23

When I cried to the Lord, he heard my voice;

he rescued me from those who attack me.

Entrust your cares to the Lord, and he will support you.




In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

Let us pray


O Jesus I Surrender myself to You, You take over. Amen

We make no apology for stating it is time to -


Stand up for Jesus.


As Mary forewarned Satan has made inroads into the Holy Church of God. We must therefore do as Mary requested pray, renew belief in, and, devotion to the Blessed Sacrament - the true presence - through Holy Mass, Adoration, Benediction, spending time before the Tabernacle and saying each day the Rosary. Uphold the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ



Uphold the true Gospel of Jesus Christ


The Importance of Prayer


The times we are living through have been foretold both by Our Blessed Mother and in the Holy Word of God. For the second time this writer has decided to stop commenting on the issues of the day and concentrate on prayer. The situation has gone past anything I can do to change it and there is always the danger of scandal.


This column will concentrate on prayer including the Holy Rosary (see below) given the fact that we place our faith on God and His Son Jesus Christ and as He requested trust Him and hand our problems, our troubles, over to Him.


Join us in our journey.


O Jesus I surrender myself, my worries, my troubles over to you, as You have requested. Jesus I trust You, You take over

The Word of God


Luke 9:22-25 - Whoever loses his life for my sake will save it


Jesus said to his disciples:

‘The Son of Man is destined to suffer grievously, to be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes and to be put to death, and to be raised up on the third day.’

Then to all he said:

‘If anyone wants to be a follower of mine, let him renounce himself and take up his cross every day and follow me. For anyone who wants to save his life will lose it; but anyone who loses his life for my sake, that man will save it. What gain, then, is it for a man to have won the whole world and to have lost or ruined his very self?’



MORNING PRAYER

Lord, my life is Yours.

I give myself to You

for the purpose of spreading Your Mercy

now and for eternity.

Use me as You will, dear Lord.

I offer myself as a willing instrument

of Your Mercy in our world.

Jesus, I trust in You.

Amen



“But as for you, fear nothing; I am always with you. And know this, too, My daughter: all creatures, whether they know it or not, and whether they want to or not, always fulfill My w




Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska:

Divine Mercy in My Soul





The Word of The Lord - From the Old Testament


Deuteronomy 30:15-20 · I set before you today life or death, blessing or curse


Moses said to the people: ‘See, today I set before you life and prosperity, death and disaster. If you obey the commandments of the Lord your God that I enjoin on you today, if you love the Lord your God and follow his ways, if you keep his commandments, his laws, his customs, you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land which you are entering to make your own. But if your heart strays, if you refuse to listen, if you let yourself be drawn into worshipping other gods and serving them, I tell you today, you will most certainly perish; you will not live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess. I call heaven and earth to witness against you today: I set before you life or death, blessing or curse. Choose life, then, so that you and your descendants may live, in the love of the Lord your God, obeying his voice, clinging to him; for in this your life consists, and on this depends your long stay in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob he would give them.’


Each day I pray that the Lord

will bless you and keep you.

May He show His face to you

and have mercy.

May He turn His countenance to you

and give you peace.

The Lord bless you!

Amen.


Always remember - Jesus loves you.


Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel


Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in our hour of conflict. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.


The Holy Rosary


Our Blessed Mother explained to us what would happen in the World and in the Church if people continued to turn from God. One of the things she asked us to do was to say the Rosary everyday. Please find a few minutes today to fulfil her request.


Today we pray

The Luminous Mysteries


Only in God is my soul at rest.

In Him comes my salvation.


We finish as we begun


In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
