July 28, 2021 Reflection – “Be prayer for all those who do not pray…”

Be prayer for all those who do not pray… July 28, 2021 Dear Family of Mary! Here again is the message from Our Lady for July 25, 2021: “Dear children! I am calling you to be prayer for all those who do not pray. Little children, witness with your lives the joy that you are mine and God will heed your prayers and give you peace in this peaceless world where pride and selfishness reign. Little children, you be generous and be the love of my love, so that pagans can feel that you are mine and convert to my Immaculate Heart. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (July 25, 2021) “I am calling you to be prayer for all those who do not pray…” We are often asked to pray for those who do not pray, to intercede for them, to say novenas on their behalf, but it is not so often that Our Lady calls us to “be prayer” for those who do not pray. This request comes from her heart. I feel an urgency in her words. “I am calling you to be prayer for all those who do not pray…’ Those who do not pray are her children who are neglecting their relationship with God. They may not know Him at all, or they may have rejected Him due to some suffering in their lives. They may have never heard of Him. Or they may have never been shown how to pray. But the fact remains, they do not pray. Without prayer they are at risk. They are adrift in a world of danger. They have no compass. Without prayer, they cannot receive the love God has for them. They cannot begin to understand His call. They are rudderless and vulnerable. The devil can fill that void with temptations and false hopes. Without prayer, they are in great danger. Those who do not pray are like lost sheep without a shepherd. So Our Lady calls to us, “be prayer for all those who do not pray.” What can this mean? How can we be prayer for others? I asked Denis this question and he said: “Just pray. You pray. That is what it means. You be the one to pray…period.” I think he is right! There is no technique, no set of prayers, no attitude to take on. Our Lady has called us to pray the Rosary, to pray the Mass, to pray in Adoration, to pray Novenas and devotional prayer, to pray as we fast, to pray in the family, to pray the Scriptures, to pray in silence with the Lord…to pray. This is how we “be prayer.” And as we pray, she will gather our prayers and apply them to those who do not pray where ever she can. Those who do not pray will received the grace to pray, and they will be able to find their way! God will break through the barriers and come to their aid. May we “be prayer…” from now on, constantly! Let’s ask the Holy Spirit again to help us: Prayer for the Help of the Holy Spirit O God, send forth your Holy Spirit into my heart that I may perceive, into my mind that I may remember, and into my soul that I may meditate. Inspire me to speak with piety, holiness, tenderness and mercy. Teach, guide and direct my thoughts and senses from beginning to end. May your grace ever help and correct me, and may I be strengthened now with wisdom from on high, for the sake of your infinite mercy. Amen. In Jesus, Mary, and Joseph! Cathy Nolan Mary TV 2021
