THE POWER OF PRAYER BRINGS ABOUT GREAT CHANGES IN THE SPIRIT
Through Christ’s suffering for our salvation; through the many sufferings Mary and Joseph humbly endured as they raised Jesus, and in our own sufferings, we become closer to our fellow man who is crying out for a helping hand of charity, of saving grace. Our world needs peace. Through love of neighbor, doors of understanding are opened and prejudices disappear as we see our neighbor as a reflection of our self, and a beautiful creation by God our Father. Let prayer be our spiritual food, pleading for Our Lord to wipe away persecution and the suffering that accompanies it. Open the hearts of those who do not know God’s love. May Christian churches be rebuilt so Jesus Christ be given honor, adoration, praise and worship once again. We trust that through our fervent prayers, a new world of peace and joy will reign in the hearts of all people. Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe, pray for us.
