Do “Pray and let God worry.” (Martin Luther)
Why should we pray and for what do we pray?
I found this PRAYER FOR ALL NEEDS in the back of a Catholic Mass Missal. It reads:
“We beg You, Lord, to help and defend us. Deliver the oppressed, pity the insignificant, raise the fallen, show Yourself to the needy, heal the sick, bring back those of Your people who have gone astray, feed the hungry, lift up the weak, take off the prisoners’ chains.”
"May every nation come to know that You alone are God, that Jesus Christ is Your Child, that we are Your people, the sheep that You pasture. Amen."
Not sure about you, but I know that I need our Lord’s help. I need Him in my life every minute of everyday.
Prayer is the only way we can experience a real and personal relationship with God. If you don’t pray, you lose out on knowing and feeling God deep within your heart.
We all have different prayer needs, but we all have the same God who reaches out to us in prayer.
Life is full of choices, whatever you do, don't forget to pray!
It is our lifeline to God.
|"But he must ask in faith without any doubting, |
for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea,
driven and tossed by the wind."
