A Prayer for True Love

The name of Jesus sends a rush of joy through my heart.

The name of Jesus conquers fear and slaughters demons.

The name of Jesus saves souls and gives life purpose.

The name of Jesus is my hope and true love.

Blessed be Your name.


Don’t let me fall in love with the empty promises of this world, for I am not of this world. I am Yours and want to plant my heart firmly in Heaven. My love, if placed in Your wounded hands, will not become dust; the mere touch of Your holy Blood gives it new and eternal life. Help me to love everyone I meet half as much as I should. Let me dance with You until You send Mr. Right. Even then, be watching our dance like an older brother.

You don’t break what’s Yours. You won’t let someone else break me, either. Don’t let me follow the path of broken love. I want to follow the path of true love, Your path, because You are love. If I should stray and hurt myself, help my broken heart remember that You’re still waiting. If I should stray, gently remind me that You will accept me back.

The name of Jesus gives me healing.

Jesus, be mine.

I love You.

"I Came to You Late"

I came to You late, O Beauty so ancient and new. I came to love You late. You were within me and I was outside where I rushed about wildly searching for You like some monster loose in Your beautiful world. You were with me but I was not with You. You called me, You shouted to me, You wrapped me in Your Splendour, You broke past my deafness, You bathed me in Your Light, You sent my blindness reeling. You gave out such a delightful fragrance and I drew it in and came breathing hard after You. I tasted, and it made me hunger and thirst; You touched me, and I burned to know Your Peace.

- St. Augustine of Hippo

Song of the Day:
Write Your Love On My Heart
by Matt Maher

I’m waiting for a miracle
I’m waiting for a star to fall
I’m bankrupt and worn out
I need to know You’re here now

When I’ve got nothing left to say
And I don’t know how to pray
Would You
Write Your love on my heart
When I struggle just to feel
And I wonder if You’re real
Would You
Write Your love on my heart
Write Your love on my heart

Take this condemnation
And all of my frustration
Lift me out of the mud
Come and fill an empty cup

When I’ve got nothing left to say
And I don’t know how to pray
Would You
Write Your love on my heart
When I struggle just to feel
And I wonder if You’re real
Would You
Write Your love on my heart
Write Your love on my heart

Cause Your love opens eyes to see
Your love breaks through walls that surround me
Your love cries out from the deep to save me

When I’ve got nothing left to say
And I don’t know how to pray
Would You
Write Your love on my heart
When I struggle just to feel
And I wonder if You’re real
Would You
Write Your love on my heart
Write Your love on my heart

Write Your love on my heart
Write Your love on my heart
Write Your love on my heart

Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, save me
Blood of Christ, inebriate me
Water from Christ’s side, wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
O good Jesus, hear me
Within Thy wounds hide me
Suffer me not to be separated from Thee
From the malicious enemy defend me
In the hour of my death call me
And bid me come unto Thee
That I may praise Thee with Thy saints
and with Thy angels
Forever and ever
Anima Christi

Urgent request for my fellow prayer warriors:

A family friend of ours Sheryl, was hospitalized last week after Christmas & given two weeks left to live. 

Sheryl, is a beautiful soul who has been bravely & forcefully fighting cancer for more than three years. We met her and her family a couple years ago, and I have never known her to have hair - due to constant chemotherapy. She is a breast cancer survivor, but a few years ago she was diagnosed with cancer yet again. This time it has spread throughout her body, and has gotten into her jaw and her bones. She is not very old, and she’s already beaten many odds and outlived many doctor’s prognosis. 

She and her husband, Doug, married later in life and have two beautiful twins who are truly a miracle. She and her husband our so devoted to each other, and watching them carry on so determined these past few years has been humbling. She is so faith-filled. Mrs. Sheryl has never allowed anyone to see her pain, she is always positive, never complains, and thanks God for everything. Her faith has changed mine.

Sheryl’s children are in second grade, and one event they were all looking forward to was the twin’s first Holy Communion this upcoming spring.

They are only eight, and they deserve a mother with them. 

Sheryl has said she is willing to go whenever God calls her.

Right now she is in terrible pain.

The doctors have now said she has only two days left, because her kidneys are failing.

I know that death is a beautiful thing, because she will be at peace, finally in good health & united with God, but it is so hard for her husband, Doug & the twins. I’ve seen him cry and it breaks my heart. The love they share should never be separated.

Please will you pray for a miracle? Or at least for peace in their family and understanding? 

Sheryl is a hero.

thank you so much for your prayers!

I’ve always thought of the heart as being like a garden. Whatever is planted there will eventually grow if it is nurtured. The fruit of that garden will be evidenced in a person’s words and actions. Just as God placed the first man and woman in the garden and met with them there in the cool of the evening, God still comes walking in the garden of our hearts and calls out to us, as He did to Adam and Eve, asking, “Where are you?”
How do we respond to that call? Adam and Eve were honest after they realized they had disobeyed God, and they responded with, “We were afraid, so we hid.”
The place to start praying for your future husband is in the garden of his heart. What do you want to growing there when you meet him? Is he hiding from God now? How about you? Have you come out of hiding?

Urgent prayer request:

So guys I’m taking the SAT tomorrow for the 3rd time. I desperately need to raise my math score so I can get a scholarship. (without a scholarship I won’t get to go to college) I’ve been working so hard, and doing all I can to improve my score. Everything else is fine, I just have to raise my score on the math portion. I feel like I’ve never worked harder for something, but I’m sitting here tonight so nervous I feel sick. I trust that God is providing, but I could still use the spiritual support!

Could you all PLEASE pray for me? I could use some prayers for peace & knowledge. 

Thank you so much!
