A Priest’s Prayer

Q: I am not doing what I should in order to enter the gates of heaven. Could you send me a daily prayer? I need to change my life, but do not know where to begin. 

A: I wrote this prayer to help you remain open to God’s grace and to accept the strength you need to cooperate with it:

“Heavenly Father, you know that I want to cooperate with your grace but you are also aware that often I fail to do that. Help me on my spiritual journey toward you. Show me how that journey influences the way that I deal with friends, family members, neighbors and even strangers. Give me the courage to make the changes that, deep down, I realize will bring me closer to you. I pray in the name of Jesus, your Son, and through the power of the Holy Spirit.”

  1. Can you please urgently pray that my Dad’s colonoscopy will be able successful tomorrow 26th April. That there will be no problems and that all the Tests and scans will be normal. That I will be able to make the medicine properly and that Dad will be able to take the medicine correctly and do the liquid diet well without feeling ill and have no discomfort. I am a little worried, that my parents and I will not worry and trust and surrender everything in our loving Father Jesus Christ. That all the Doctors and people handling Dad will be kind, efficient and take care of Dad well. For the good health, peace of mind, happiness and protection of my parents. children, myself and husband. Amen.
