Prayer of Salvation
(for renewed faith in Jesus Christ


Lord Jesus Christ, come into my heart. I desire that You be the Lord of my life, so that I may be a Child of the Light. To know You as my personal Savior. For I know and believe that You died on the Cross for my sins. You rose again from the dead on the third day, and You are coming again in glory. I believe in Your forgiveness, and I desire that You help me to refrain from any temptations that would keep me separated from Your everlasting love. Amen.

Prayer to Take Authority

Imprimatur: + Bishop James Pazhyatil
Bishop of Irinjalakuda, India

(It is encouraged that this prayer be said twice daily. Also, this prayer has no power whatsoever unless a chapter of Scripture is read each day, preferably from the four Gospels.)

 

+ Sign of our Faith (In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.) +


  In the Name of Jesus, I take authority and I bind all powers and forces in the air, in the ground, in the water, in the underground, in the nether-world, in nature, and in fire.

  You are the Lord over the entire universe and I give You the glory for Your creation. In Your name I bind all demonic forces that have come against us and our families, and I seal all of us in the protection of Your Precious Blood that was shed for us on the Cross.

  Mary, Our Mother, we seek your protection and intercession with the Sacred Heart of Jesus for us and our families, and surround us with Your mantle of love to discourage the enemy.

  St. Michael and our guardian angels come defend us and our families in battle against all the evil ones that roam the earth.

  In the Name of Jesus, I bind and command all the powers and forces of evil to depart right now, away from us, our homes and our lands, and we thank You Lord Jesus, for You are a faithful and compassionate God.

Amen.

Hail Mary….

Brother Lawrence and many other saints and teachers of the Christian tradition, promoted that the "practice of the presence of God" is of the utmost importance. As St. Faustyna Kowalska said,  "Faithfulness to the inspirations of the Holy Spirit – that is the shortest route" to holiness! (Divine Mercy in My Soul, par. 291)

the early Franciscans: 
Daily devotion to, and the experience of the Holy Spirit's anointing comes about through praise, the highest form of prayer (because it is entirely focused on God Himself, see Catechism of the Catholic Church 2639)...it is what the angels and saints do forever in Heaven. 

God always attends praise from the heart with His anointed presence: "But thou dwellest in the holy place, the praise of Israel." (Psalm 22:3)
 
"...they bore all so bravely that the voice of praise and thanksgiving alone sounded in their mouth. Scarcely, or not at all, did they cease from praising God and from prayer."
(The First Life of St. Francis, Thomas of Celano, par. 40)

Lectio Divina

how to read and pray the Bible

Praying the Bible.jpg

Jesus said, “If you continue in my word, you shall be my disciples indeed.” (John 8:31) It is not a Protestant thing, or a Catholic thing- it is a Christian thing. How much time do we spend reading and meditating on Scripture each day?

St. Benedict, in no. 48 of his rule of life, said "idleness is the enemy of the soul; and therefore the community ought to be employed in manual labor at certain times, at others, in divine reading.” Divine reading in Latin is "lectio divina." There are some powerful steps to entering communion with God through this holy reading of Scripture mixed with prayer and communion with Jesus.

 
-1 a Call upon the Holy Spirit. (Possibly the best time is right after praise and worship, prayer in the Spirit as this is when our spiritual eyes and ears are opened)
-1 Lectio (read the passage, seeking to hear from God)
-2 Meditatio  (when a word or phrase sticks out, think about/consider what God may be saying to you, personally)
-3 Oratio  (pray, converse with God about this and seek understanding- "Lord, please expand on this")
-4 Contemplatio  (sit in quiet union with the Lord) "Contemplative prayer is silence...or 'silent love'...like kindling that feeds the fire of love." (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2717).  This is where our strength and energy are renewed, our prayer power. (Isaiah 40:31)
-5 Actio  (put into action what God is saying in real life) "Faith without deeds is dead." (James 2:14) We need to respond in prayer, but also in action- if God is speaking to us about forgiveness, we need to forgive, about the poor, we need to do something for someone in need, etc.

NB: the daily readings of the Church (esp. the Gospel) are a great choice for daily Scripture. Another option is to do a Scripture study of some kind- e.g. if you need peace, do a study of all the Scripture verses on "peace," and find out its true meaning, etc.
 
Witness Example:

once, Lee Anne was meditating on the word, "therefore," as appears in Scripture so many times. She did not understand why this word had stood out to her. After 3 weeks (!) of meditating, waiting in silence and asking "what are You saying to me, Lord?" one day she heard her own voice, in her spirit, saying to God interiorly, "what did You send me up
there for?" It was a revelation from the Lord! (Gal. 1:11-12) She realized that she had been upset with the Lord for sending her as a missionary to a town that she absolutely did not like. Of course, God later revealed His will and plan through a huge move of the Spirit in the life of the local priest and the parish... but at the time, she was upset and didn't fully realize it! Thank God that He knows our own hearts better than we do- but it takes the Word ("sharper than a two-edged sword" Heb. 4:12) to pry it out of us.


If Lee Anne had not continued in asking the Lord, "what are saying with 'therefore'?" this time in Scripture would have had no impact on her daily life. 





 

I would like in particular to recall and recommend the ancient tradition of Lectio Divina

R E V I V A L

personal transformation

Praise and worship, coupled with lectio divina, the prayerful reading of the Scriptures, can act as dynamite for any spiritual life: "Praise embraces the other forms of prayer and carries them toward him who is its source and goal," the Father. (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2639) Experiencing the anointing of the Holy Spirit through praise and worship, and listening to God in daily Scripture meditation, makes the sacraments come alive with greater meaning and efficacy, as these forms of prayer activate the heart, making it ready to receive all that God has for us.

Without a personal revelation of God, all religious activities are useless!
"For neither did I receive it of man, nor did I learn it; but by the revelation of Jesus Christ." (Gal. 1:12)  

Praise and worship to come under a daily anointing, and meditation on the Scriptures (especially the four "healing Gospels") bring transformation to the soul during an intimate communion between God and ourselves each day as we enter His Word in prayer. 

Lee Anne's testimony: "How Praying for the Anointing of the Holy Spirit and Reading Scripture Changed My Life"
