Praying to God

Thank You, beautiful Father

Thank You, most beautiful and infinitely loving Almighty Father, for all the graces You have given us out of the sheer goodness of Your Divine Heart. We love You, we adore You, and we worship You.

Pray for those who have lost their faith 

This Easter season, pray for those who have lost their faith and are publicly denying the Resurrection of Christ, particularly those who are Catholic/Orthodox priests/former priests, so that they may be granted the grace of faith anew by God, despite their denial, as they remain priests forever in the order of Melchisedek.

Pray for the intentions of the Almighty Father

Do not pray solely for yourself and for others. Pray also for the intentions, the desires, of God the Almighty Father. It is what He wants at this time.

How do you pray to God? Response to a question

The question was asked, “How do you pray to God?” The brief answer is simple. You speak to Him from your heart as though you are speaking to your very best friend or a great parent. It is true that there are set vocal prayers that you can say and which our Father does desire to hear. But what He yearns for most of all is intimacy with us – both the content and the process. So effective prayer to God entails our simple speaking to Him from the heart about everything that goes on in our lives, even though He already knows everything, because He desires a true Father-child relationship.

To God our Father

What would You like me to do?

Do not be afraid to ask our Father, “What would You like me to do for You today?” He loves receiving such a question from us when it comes from the heart, because it opens us up to receiving His Will within us. Moreover, after you ask such a question with sincerity, joy and peace will fill your heart, your soul. And the rest of the day will never be the same again.

A lament

“You are just, O Lord, and all Your judgments are just, and Your ways mercy and truth and judgment. And now, O Lord, think of me and do not take revenge on my sins, neither remember my offences, nor those of my parents. For we have not obeyed Your commandments, therefore we are delivered to spoil and to captivity and death, and are made a fable and a reproach to all nations among which You have scattered us. And now, O Lord, great are Your judgments, because we have not done according to Your precepts and have not walked sincerely before You” (Tob 3:2-5).

In praise to the Almighty Father

“HaShem is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? HaShem is the stronghold of my life, of whom shall I be afraid? When evil men came upon me to devour my flesh, even my adversaries and my foes, they stumbled and fell. Though a host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war should rise up against me, even then will my trust be firm.  (more…)

Let us worship our Father in Spirit and in Truth

“Yahweh, God of gods, speaks, He summons the earth. From east to west, from Zion, perfection of beauty, He shines. Let our God come and be silent no more! Preceding Him, a devouring fire, round Him, a raging storm. He summons the heavens above and the earth to His people’s trial:  (more…)

Prayer in ordeal

“Listen to me, Yahweh, and answer me, poor and needy as I am. Keep my soul: I am Your devoted one, save Your servant who relies on You. You are my God. Take pity on me, Lord, I invoke You all day long. Give Your servant reason to rejoice, for to You, Lord, I lift my soul. Lord, You are good and forgiving, most loving to all who invoke You.  (more…)

Pray for wisdom

“God of our ancestors, Lord of mercy, who by Your word have made all things and in Your wisdom have fitted man to rule the creatures that have come from You, to govern the world in holiness and justice and in honesty of soul to wield authority, grant me Wisdom, consort of Your throne, and do not reject me from the number of Your children. For I am Your servant, son of Your serving maid, a feeble man, with little time to live, with small understanding of justice and the laws. Indeed, were (more…)

When is the Consecration Prayer to the Father said?

The question was asked, “When is the prayer of consecration to the Divine Heart of God the Father said?” The answer is at any time. Whenever you wish to say the prayer, do so. No rules and regulations are involved although some say it daily as, like that, you are offering your day to the Father.

Meanwhile, for those who believe in the Sacrament of Reconciliation (e.g., Catholics, Orthodox), it is wise to sometimes say the prayer after confession, since the consecration leads to receiving the seal of the Father (Rv 3:10-12).

Why is an icon wonder-working?

You work wonders through created things, O Lord, while men have lost the gift of wonder working. You take fire and water for Your servants, while people refuse to serve You. To wood and metal You give Your power, while it is returned to You, despised by people. Through earth and grass You bestow mercy on Your chosen ones, while people make themselves too impure to (more…)

You work wonders

You work wonders through created things, O Lord, while men have lost the gift of wonder working.

You take fire and water for Your servants, while people refuse to serve You.

To wood and metal You give Your power, while it is returned to You, despised by people.

Through earth and grass You bestow mercy on Your chosen ones, while people make themselves too impure to be channels of mercy.  (more…)

Renewed call for institution of the Solemnity of the Divine Paternal Heart

The public call was explicitly made for institution of the Solemnity of the Divine Paternal Heart of God the Father, in the liturgical calendar of the universal Church. This call was made by Thomas W. Petrisko, President of The Father of All Mankind Apostolate and former president of the Pittsburgh Center for Peace. In The Divine Paternal Heart of God Our Father, Petrisko (2012) said:

“The Father’s pain for His children now pierces His Paternal Heart. The Lord of Heaven and earth (more…)

How do we say the prayers of consecration to God the Father? – Response to a question

The question was posed, “How do we say the prayers of consecration to God the Father?” The answer is simple: just say the Consecration Prayer with genuine intent in your heart and mind. That is all. If you feel, for some reason, that you lack the latter, ask God with sincerity to grant you that particular grace. He will as He strongly desires all mankind to become re-consecrated to Him. Alternatively, (more…)

To God our beautiful Father on Father’s Day 2013

DH2 GOOD

A voice in the wilderness – 5

Love, my beautiful love, I love You and adore You. You fill my heart, mind and soul with joy even in the most dire of circumstances. Your life is life, Your life is light. Yet many do not know You and those who once knew You, have forgotten You.

Note: Written in the Upper Room, on the vigil of Pentecost.

Being in love – Adoring God

“O God, You are my God, for You I long; for You my soul is thirsting. My body pines for You like a dry, weary land without water, so I gave on You in the sanctuary to see Your strength and Your glory. For Your love is better than life, my lips will speak Your praise. So I will bless You all my life, in Your Name I will lift up my hands. My soul shall be filled as with a banquet, my mouth shall praise You (more…)

Prayer for the New Israel

“Have mercy on us, O God of all, and behold us; show us the light of Your mercies. Send Your fear upon the nations that have not sought after You: that they may know that there is no God beside You; and that they may show forth Your wonders. Lift up Your hand over the strange nations, that they may see Your power. For as You have been sanctified (more…)

The signs of the times – 28

“Why, O God, have You cast us off for ever? Why blaze with anger at the sheep of Your pasture? Remember Your people whom You chose long ago, the tribe You redeemed to be Your own possession, the mountain of Zion where You made Your dwelling. Turn Your steps to these places that are utterly ruined! The enemy has laid waste the whole of the sanctuary. Your foes have made uproar (more…)

The softness of God the Father – Reblogged by request

God the Father is the Almighty Creator, the Alpha and Omega of the universe. Yet His softness is remarkable and tenderness unmistakeable in His intimate daily dealings with His children. Soft – a softness and tenderness unmatched elsewhere – can be said to best describe our Father within the function of His Paternality and Parentality. Gently caressing, infinitely loving and firmly  (more…)

How do we draw upon the Father’s strength? – Response to a question

Turn your lives over to (more…)
