Prayer means pouring out our hearts to the Father with complete confidence and infinite trust in His Fatherly love
-M. Basilea Schlink
Prayer means looking away from visible things to the invisible God, who rules over all powers and principalities, over the visible and invisible.
Prayer means lying prostrate before God as a sinner and saying, ‘I am not worthy to be called your child’—and then being taken into His loving arms as one who has received grace.
Prayer means being ready to enter into the fellowship of Jesus’ sufferings for the sake of the souls for whom we pray
Prayer means lovingly bringing all the needs of our family, friends, neighbors and our nation, indeed the whole world, before the Father and persisting in faith until help and salvation come.
Priestly prayer means building a bridge for my neighbor, so that he may come home to the Father
Prayer means being called to be watchmen on His fortresses, not resting day and night until salvation, help and healing come to people’s souls
Prayer means stepping into battle in the assurance that the greater the onslaught of Satan, the greater will be the victory of God has for us
Prayer means taking refuge in Jesus’ wounds and finding healing there when I am painfully aware of my sins
Prayer means singing the joyful song of salvation over every sin, for the One to whom we pray has already broken the power of sin on the cross.
Prayer means in faith to set foot in the enemy’s territory and there to raise the sign of victory, which is the cross.
Prayer means claiming the blood of the Lamb as we come to the Father. Since Jesus was inflicted with the wounds for the sake of our redemption, how can the Father refuse our pleas when we take refuge in the wounds of His only Son?
Prayer means pleading for the salvation of our dear ones and many others, by blessing them with the name of Jesus.
Prayer means lovingly repeating one name above every name: JESUS
Prayer means lovingly contemplating the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, allowing our hearts to be enkindled to praise and adore the love and omnipotence of the most blessed Trinity
