Let’s face it, you’re a sinner. All of us are. It’s easy for us to succumb to a terrible temptation, that the power of prayer is, well powerless.
It’s easy to think God is busy; that we’re insignificant; or more likely that we’re unworthy of answered prayers. The saints can help. They’ve been in our shoes.
Saint Padre Pio encourages you to pray:
“Prayer is the BEST weapon we possess. It is the key that OPENS the heart of God.”
St. Teresa of Avila encourages you to pray:
“Prayer is terms of friendship with God, frequently conversing in secret with Him who, we know, loves us.”
St. Mother Teresa encourages you to pray:
“Love to pray. Prayer enlarges the heart until is capable of containing God’s gift of Himself.”
Pray the First Heartbeat Prayer
What should you pray? Today, could you pray for someone you don’t know? A preborn baby whose life is on the line as I type. Her life is being debated in the Iowa Senate right now.
Legislators will determine if the law shall protect her life once a heartbeat is detectable, at around the 5th week.
We’ve posted the prayer above. Please, take a minute to pray it. You’ll change the world.
