January 28, 2022 Reflection – Return to Personal Prayer

    Return to Personal Prayer January 28, 2022 St. Thomas Aquinas Dear Family of Mary! Our Lady called us back to prayer in her January 25, 2022 Message: “Dear children! Today I am calling you to return to personal prayer. Little children, do not forget that Satan is strong and that he wants to attract all the more souls to himself. That is why, you be vigilant in prayer and resolute in the good. I am with you and am blessing all of you with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (January 25, 2022) I, for one, have been trying to get a good idea of what Our Lady means by “personal prayer”. And I found several messages in which she has taught us about personal prayer. These messages may be a help for all of us in responding to this most recent message on prayer: July 25, 1997“Dear children! Today I invite you to respond to my call to prayer. I desire, dear children, that during this time you find a corner for personal prayer. I desire to lead you towards prayer with the heart. Only in this way will you comprehend that your life is empty without prayer. You will discover the meaning of your life when you discover God in prayer. That is why, little children, open the door of your heart and you will comprehend that prayer is joy without which you cannot live. Thank you for having responded to my call.” July 25, 2001“Dear children! In this time of grace, I call you to come even closer to God through your personal prayer. Make good use of the time of rest and give your soul and your eyes rest in God. Find peace in nature and you will discover God the Creator Whom you will be able to give thanks to for all creatures; then you will find joy in your heart. Thank you for having responded to my call.” January 25, 2010″Dear children! May this time be a time of personal prayer for you, so that the seed of faith may grow in your hearts; and may it grow into a joyful witness to others. I am with you and I desire to inspire you all: grow and rejoice in the Lord who has created you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” August 25, 2010“Dear children! With great joy, also today, I desire to call you anew: pray, pray, pray. May this time be a time of personal prayer for you. During the day, find a place where you will pray joyfully in a recollected way. I love you and bless you all. Thank you for having responded to my call.” Holy Thursday, April 19, 1984 (To Jelena) “I’m going to reveal a spiritual secret to you: if you want to be stronger than evil, make yourself a plan of personal prayer. Take a certain time in the morning, read a text from Holy Scripture, anchor the Divine word in your heart, and strive to live it during the day, particularly during the moment of trials. In this way, you will be stronger than evil.” Well, these messages are like clean, fresh air for me! I think I do need to renew personal prayer. The key word for me is to “time”. I need to take more time just for my own prayer. My time with the Lord. A time when nothing else matters! A time to really rest with God! Thank you, dear Mother, for your messages. They are lifelines for us all! In Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Cathy Nolan Mary TV 2022
