June 27th .. Join us in Praying for the Gulf!!


(As an aside, for Catholics, June 27 is the Feast of Our Lady of Perpetual Help. Please consider asking her intercession.)

Day of Prayer in Louisiana on Sunday! Please forward this to your families, your pastors and to everyone you know to join us in praying! Only the Lord, through our prayers, can repair the damaged oil well and protect our coast!

Today (June 24, 2010),
Governor Bobby Jindal joined three other Southern governors in issuing an EMERGENCY PRAYER PROCLAMATION, declaring SUNDAY, JUNE 27, 2010, a DAY OF PRAYER IN LOUISIANA!
Governors Haley Barbour of Mississippi, Rick Perry of Texas and Bob Riley of Alabama join Jindal in issuing similar emergency directives.
America has assembled the brightest minds, the newest technology and America's finest for 65 consecutive days to seal this breach in the Gulf of Mexico and contain its unwelcomed intrusion into our lives and onto our shores. One thing that we have failed to do is corporately "PAUSE AND PRAY"and admit that our efforts are futile without the assistance of the Almighty!
Governor Bobby Jindal's proclamation calling willing Louisianians to join him in bowing their hearts and entreating Heaven's favor this Sunday, June 27, 2010, is an entirely appropriate "Call to action in this present crisis."
Please participate this Sunday by:

* BOWING your knee
"Come, let us bow down in worship; let us kneel before the LORD who made us." Psalm 95:6

* TURNING your heart toward Heaven
"Let us reach out our hearts toward God in heaven."
Lamentations 3:41

* HUMBLING yourself before God
"So humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that
He may exalt you in due time." 1 Peter 5:6

"CRYING OUT" on behalf of our deep water, fertile coast, strained industry and precious families
"When the just cry out, the LORD hears them, and from all their distress He rescues them." Psalm 34:18

Ask God to "hear our cry" and to heal our wetland, coast and Gulf

2 CHRONICLES 7:14: "If My people who are called by My Name will humble themselves and pray and seek My Face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land."

Most holy and immaculate Virgin and our Mother Mary, You are our Perpetual Help, our refuge and our hope.

We come to You today. We thank God for all the graces received through your intercession. Mother of Perpetual Help, we promise to love you always and to do all we can to lead others to you.

Mother of Perpetual Help, confident of your powerful influence with God, obtain for us these graces:

The strength to overcome temptation, a perfect love for Jesus Christ, and a holy death so that we will live with you and your Son for all eternity.

Let us pray as a community of faith. Mary, all generations have called you blessed, and the Almighty has done great things for you.

Mother of Perpetual Help, we call upon your most powerful name. Your very name inspires confidence and hope. May it always be on our lips, especially in time of temptation and at the hour of our death. Blessed Lady, help us whenever we call on you. Let us not be content with merely pronouncing your name. May our daily lives proclaim that you are our Mother and our Perpetual Help.

Let us pray for our temporal wants.

Mother of Perpetual Help, with the greatest confidence we kneel before you. We implore your help in the problems of our daily lives. Trials and sorrows often depress us; misfortunes and privations bring misery into our lives; everywhere we meet the cross. Comforter of the Afflicted, beg your Son Jesus to strengthen us as we bear our burdens and to free us from our sufferings. Or if it be the will of God that we should suffer still longer, help us endure all with love and patience. May we follow the example of your Son, and through him, with him, and in him commend ourselves to the care of our heavenly Father.

Let us now present our petitions and our thanks.

Lord Jesus Christ, at a word from Mary your Mother, You changed water into wine at Cana of Galilee. Grant our petitions and accept our sincere thanks.

Grant peace and unity throughout the world, especially in our homes and families.

Hear us, Lord, through Mary our Mother.

Grant that young people respond generously to the call of the Holy Spirit in deepening their faith and choosing their vocation in life.

Hear us, Lord, through Mary our Mother.

Grant us continued health of mind and body, and help the sick, especially . . . , to regain their health according to your holy will.

Hear us, Lord, through Mary our Mother.

Grant eternal rest to all our deceased, especially . . . , and to the souls of all the faithful departed.

Hear us, Lord, through Mary our Mother.

Let us pause now to silently present our own petitions to Our Mother of Perpetual Help. . .

Lord, accept our thanks for the new life of grace you gave us.

We thank You, Lord, through Mary our Mother.

The Apostle, St. John tells us exactly how to recognize the spirit of truth from the spirit of falsehood. He says "as for them, they are of the world - and the world listens to them because they speak the language of the world. But we are children of God and those who know God: LISTEN TO US. Those who are not of God REFUSE TO LISTEN TO US. That is how we can tell the spirit of truth from the spirit of falsehood." ~1 John 4:6 [The "us" to whom St. John refers are the Apostles, and their successors the Bishops.]

Prayer to avoid the Sin of PRIDE:
“Oh My Jesus help me to avoid the sin of pride when I speak in Your Name. Forgive me if I ever belittle anyone in Your holy Name. Help me to listen Jesus when Your Voice is spoken and fill me with Your Holy Spirit so that I can discern the truth of Your Word when You call out to mankind. Amen.”

A prayer of St. Teresa of Avila:
O my God! Source of all mercy! I acknowledge Your sovereign power. While recalling the wasted years that are past, I believe that You, Lord, can in an instant turn this loss to gain. Miserable as I am, yet I firmly believe that You can do all things. Please restore to me the time lost, giving me Your grace, both now and in the future, that I may appear before You in "wedding garments." Amen.

“My children, let your speech be chosen with great care—it must be a light in the world. Know and believe that all you say has repercussions in time and eternity. Therefore, choose your words with wisdom and prudence, choosing to remain silent rather than fill the air with useless chatter or worse, gossip or virulent speech. Let your speech be a perfect mirror of your peaceful heart, a heart firmly grounded in the love of God and in complete trust in His goodness. Silence is often the more virtuous path. Bridle your tongue and you will be working for peace in the world.”

In the Name of Jesus I renounce as lies all thoughts that enter my mind from the evil one who accuses. By the authority of Jesus, I command them to leave me. I consecrate my mind to God for transformation into His Thoughts for my protection, salvation and His glory.

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

Just a Note:

Through the grace of God and many prayers, I survived a double surgery (with cancer) in the fall of 2008. Since then has becoming increasingly important to me to enhance my prayer life. I have taken on the task of praying for strangers and those with little hope and much adversity. To that end, I've also begun (July '09), to make rosaries and related items to put prayer into the hands of as many as I can that will PRAY for others.

The world is at the precipice ... we need to TAKE ACTION ... NOW. Time for fence sitting is quickly coming to an end. We all need to do what ever we can in the way of PRAYER & PENANCE to beg God's Grace upon humanity that we may shake away this sinfulness and pride to get back on the road that leads to heaven and our Glorious Triune God!

After you have made a decision that is pleasing to God, the devil may try to make you have second thoughts. Intensify your prayer time, meditation, and good deeds. For if satan's temptations merely cause you to increase your efforts to grow in holiness, he'll have an incentive to leave you alone.
~St. Ignatius of Loyola
