Prayer: "Oh, God our God"

Oh, God our God;

How can you seem

So far away-

So 'not here'-

So unconcerned?

So uncaring?

But, we know You are present

We know by reason and by faith.

You are our God

Who caused us to be

Who cause us to be

Forever

In Your presence

Always.

Help us to see

And if not to see, to trust!

Prayer: "God, Our God"

God our Father,

We ask you to send down

Your Holy Healing Spirit;

Upon all the sick

and

Upon all those who care for the sick.

Heal Your people, oh Lord;

Heal all Your people -

Of all their problems and troubles and ills.

We ask this in the name of Jesus Your Son

Through the intercession of all

Your Angels and Saints.

Come Holy Spirit with Your Healing Spirit!

Amen

"Amen, amen, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you." (Jn 16:23)

"Shalom! Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you" (Jn 14:27)

There are wars and dangers of new wars in the world. Witnessing all suffering and atrocities that our world is so full of, all Christians need to ask the Father for the precious gift of peace, lasting peace and good will for the entire world.

Encouraged by the words of Jesus in John's gospel, we can confidently ask for end of wars and for a new era of peace for all peoples.

 

Jesus promised that common prayer will have the efficacy of his own prayer to the Father:

"I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything for which they are to pray, it shall be granted to them by my heavenly Father. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the

midst of them.”(Mt 18:19-20)

The Holy Spirit makes us one people and creates the presence of Jesus where two or three are gathered together in his name - we ask you to join us in prayer for peace in preparation for this Pentecost!

Pray a novena for peace - nine days of prayer beginning from May 31 to June 8, Pentecost - in the form you can do it: daily pray the Rosary to Mary Queen of Peace, or any other prayer you feel inspired. But pray with faith and insistence in communion with all who desire peace, and the Father will answer our prayers:

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.

For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

Which one of you would hand his son a stone when he asks for a loaf of bread, or a snake when he asks for a fish?

If you then, who are wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good things to those who ask him." (Mt 7:7-11)
