Father Josh Johnson@frjoshjohnson:Our Church’s most successful evangelists, teachers, healers, miracle workers, prophets, helpers, intercessors, administrators, leaders, pastors, artisans, writers, and missionaries were rooted in daily prayer. If we are too busy to pray, our ministries will not bear much fruit.
Pope Francis @ Pontifex: Prayer, charity and fasting are not medicines intended only for ourselves but for everyone: they can change history, because they are the main means of intervention of God in our lives and in the world. They are weapons of the mind. #Loaned
Scapular Project@ProjectScapular: For me, prayer is an impulse of the heart; it is a simple gaze turned towards the sky, it is a cry of gratitude and love, embracing both trial and joy. – St Therese of Lisieux
Benefits of prayer
Emily, praying for peace ���@EmilyKath319: I feel like praying for “everyone I’ve met or know” is a bit tricking the system like wishing for endless wishes or something, but God is big enough to handle that kind of request so i’m just gonna keep doing it
Prof. Dwight Longenecker@dlongenecker1: Today I am grateful for all the prayers people have offered for me over the years. I’d be even more of a messed up sinner without them.
Prof. Cassidy Stinson@TheHappyPriest: I once received a spiritual bouquet from a child in the parish who pledged to pray “10,000 holy hours” for me.
In my most optimistic moments, I like to imagine that he decided to dedicate his life to prayer as a Carthusian hermit to keep his promise.
Another end of prayer
fah’Tim@FrGrumbach: Fear. Fear that God is silent, as if we have already made up his mind, so we are afraid to ask boldly and risk being disappointed. Afraid that we might actually hear his voice, and he asks us to go where we can be afraid, missing the chance to go where he has gone before us.
Prof. Larry Richards@FrLarryRichards: The Lord hears when I call” Psalm 4:3 YOU must know this and believe this truth! He is listening – talk to Him now. Peace

Prayer by Thomas Merton
Punky Mantilla @PunkyMantilla:
“My Lord God,
I have no idea where I’m going.
I can’t see the road in front of me.
I can’t know for sure where it will end.
and I don’t really know myself,
and the fact that I think I’m following your will
doesn’t mean I actually do it.
“But I believe that the desire to please you actually pleases you.
And I hope I have that desire in everything I do. I hope that I will never do anything outside of this desire.
And I know that if I do this, you will lead me on the right path, even if I don’t know anything about it. That’s why I will always trust you even though I may seem lost and in the shadow of death. I fear nothing, for you are always with me, and you will never leave me alone in the face of my perils.
Let’s say three Hail Marys for souls closest to Heaven.
Let’s say three Hail Marys for souls who died alone.
Let’s say three Hail Marys for the souls that died today.
