Clothe yourselves…in personal, deep prayer…
March 2, 2023
Dear Family of Mary!
February 25, 2023 “Dear children! Keep converting and clothe yourselves in penitential garments and in personal, deep prayer…
Our Lady gives us 5 stones. They are 5 things that we can do to grow as her children, grow as her apostles of love. The first one is prayer. She calls us to live prayer every day. We have daily Rosaries, Holy Mass and Adoration, all of which are communal. But she also instructs us to take time with her Son in prayer, only with Him. This kind of prayer is meant to be very intimate, a conversation with Jesus, through which we will find healing, light, hope, and so much more. One on one time with the Lord cannot be replaced! It is essential.
Yet personal prayer can be very difficult to start up, and easy to neglect. Life gets busy. And soon we are skimping on our personal prayer. Our Lady tells us to clothe ourselves in personal, deep prayer. Wow, that is an amazing call. She wants us to be covered with prayer, a deep and very personal prayer in which we are alone with Jesus. Every day!! Every day!!
Here are five messages in which Our Lady encourages us to personal prayer. Her words will inspire us! (Use these messages as meditations between the decades of your personal rosary!)
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.”
May 25, 2003 “Dear children! Also today I call you to prayer. Renew your personal prayer, and in a special way pray to the Holy Spirit to help you pray with the heart. I intercede for all of you, little children, and call all of you to conversion. If you convert, all those around you will also be renewed and prayer will be a joy for them. 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.”
January 25, 2022 “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.”
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
