The Lord wants to grant us His graces, but He also wants us toesk for them. Do not complain to Me if you are not filled with blessings. Complain to yourselves for not having sought what you need. From now on all of Me and your prayers will be answered. --- St. Alphonsus Liguori
Let us resolve to pray as Moses did. Exodus 17:8-13. With perseverance nothing could shake...and at times with the help of his friends.
Let us examine the quality of our prayer today. Is it persevering, trusting, insistent, tireless? If so, this will be the source of peace, cheerfulness and serenity, do it will make you humanly and supernaturally effective. --- St. Josemaria Escriva and Father Francis Fernandez from In Conversation with God
A great deal depends on our devotion. There is nothing more powerfully effective than steadfast prayer... ICWG
I'd ask you to pray for several of my closet friends and their special intentions concerning family members as well as for our priests and religious, the poor souls on purgatory, the ill, those in need of conversion, our youth, peace and unity in our families, country, world, etc. Good bless you!
