All I need about prayer

Pray every moment


Prayer is a necessary practice that has numerous benefits for our mental, emotional, and physical health. It helps us to connect with a higher power; God, express our gratitude, ask for blessings and guidance, and improve our overall well-being. Incorporating prayer into our daily lives can help us to cultivate a sense of purpose, meaning, and fulfillment, and lead happier, healthier lives.
In my personal endeavor to pray, I usually write down a short heartfelt prayer on days I am inspired, and they would constitute a good means of praying to me when I would have to listen to them when doing other things while listening to the audio. Below, are my written prayers for the month of May 2023. I invite you to pray with me by reading or by listening to the audio.

Mt.13:54-55 May 1, 2023. You know all about me, o Lord.

Lord Jesus, my good shepherd, you know all about me. No one knows what I am or what I am not except you. How can an earthly being know all about me but you who lives in me? In your words, you teach me hidden things and make me believe more and more. Open my ears to hear you more, my Good Shepherd, and keep me safe under your guidance, for you alone know all about me. My Loving Jesus, I trust in you. Amen.

Jn. 10:24-25 May 2, 2023. I hear you whisper to me, dear Lord

In your words, you say a lot to me, o my hidden Lord. Throughout my life, you have whispered to me. I hear you whisper to me and have come to believe that you are my God. You say to me, “You are mine. I know all about you. I am your Lord and your God. I created you in my image, and you are good. I’ll never abandon you. I’ve written your name in the palms of my hands. You are mine. Nothing, I say nothing can separate you from me. I love you. You are the apple of my eye. I am your Good Shepherd …” Each day, you say just too much to me, dearest Lord, revealing yourself to me more and more so that I may never doubt you or your presence in my life. I love you too, Jesus. You are my Lord and my God, my friend. No other but you. We’re meant to journey together, you in me and I in you. You are my Lord and my all, the Son of God, Christ Jesus, my Good Shepherd. May I hear your whispers more and more, Dearest Lord? Open my ears to hear you deeper. My Jesus, I trust in you. Amen

The Necessity of Prayer

Jn.13:16-17 May 3, 2023. You teach me to be humble, lord.

In many ways, you teach me to be humble, o Lord. You teach me that the greater one is the one who lays down his life for the others, taking up the part of a slave without fear of losing his honor, dignity, and rights or opportunities. My loving Jesus, give me the grace to be more humble. I may look ought in the eyes of the world, but you, o Lord, my only Icon, my Star. My Loving Jesus, I trust in you. Amen.
Jn.14:1 May 5, 2023. You are my Lord and my God
I Deny letting my heart be troubled, o Lord, because you are my Lord and my God. You are with me always. You see me through and through. I am your own. You have promised prosperity for me, why should I worry? In you, I am peaceful, I am satisfied, I am calm, for nothing terrifies me. My Jesus, I trust in you. Amen

John 14: 25-26 May 8: 2023 Help me remember your promises, Lord

My Lord and my God, you have spoken to me in many ways, from my birth till now, and yet I do not understand fully because I do not remember. Dearest Lord, help me to remember your great promise and works in my life. Fill me, with your Holy Spirit, that I may be enlightened about all that you say to me.

Come, Holy Spirit Divine, I wait for you. Fill me with knowledge, wisdom, and understanding so that I may remember all that God has promised me and keep to His promises all my life. Holy Spirit, I trust in you. Amen.

John 14:27 May 9, 2023, Give me peace, Lord

My peaceful Jesus, thank you for offering me true peace that the world can’t give. I offer you every bit of thing in me that steals my peace, takes it away from me, and gives me the grace of true peace that comes only from you. Where I am disorganized, whether in thoughts, words, or acts, help me be organized so I may enjoy you peacefully.

Holy Spirit of Jesus, come to my helper and fill me with true peace. Amen

I want to remain in the one who knows me, gives me comfort and consolation, provides all I need, and who is leading me on the right path. I want to remain in your love, dear Lord, help me out. Amen

John 15:14-15 May 12, 2023, Yes Lord, you are my friend

Dearest Jesus, I am so happy to hear you say I am your friend. You have revealed and told me much about yourself. Yes, Lord, I am your friend. Help increase my feeble effort to keep your commands.

Jn. 15:18-19. May 13, 2023, Loving Jesus, you are mine

My Loving Jesus, you are mine, and I am yours. Though the world may try to be against me, all I know is that I am for you and you are mine. Give me a loving heart towards the world so that I may not return evil for evil but always try to change the evil of the world with love. Mighty Jesus, give me tolerance so that I may be able to tolerate the world, and you did. You are my Light, The Truth, and my Way. I want to follow you as you want and not as the world wants. Sweet Jesus, I trust in you. Amen


O, Holy Spirit my Helper, Promise of my Lord, come! Without you, I can’t do anything. Come and make me understand what Jesus is saying to me. Come and help me bear witness to my Lord.

You are always there, o Mother. In times of distress, I saw you, and you brought me the assurance that your Son sees me. In times of doubt and confusion, you came with a warning and direction. In sorrow, you came with consolation. In my dryness and surrender, you assured me by your beautiful presence; that your color is blue, signifying calmness that you live where springs of living water flow, and that near you I can walk triumphantly on top of the waters. I will sing songs to you o Mother, in the assembly of your children, as I was asked to.

With your entire family, you visited us, assuring us that you are present and we are always part of your family. O Sweet and Loving Mother, you are my Mother And Model.
