The Power of Prayer
God wants us to pray – every day for all those in need – those suffering from physical, psychological and spiritual difficulties. Prayer is one of the Spiritual Works of Mercy. “Even the strongest faith is of no avail without works of mercy. If a soul does not exercise mercy in some way, it will not obtain My mercy on the day of judgment.”
– from St. Faustina’s Diary
For me, prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy.
– St. Therese of Lisieux
