Continued from the previous post on Getting God’s Attention:
Fatima, in 1917 the world was given directly from Heaven a peace plan. It was so easy maybe too easy, which is why the world, for the most part, ignored it. Why do I say, her message was ignored, just look at the world, do we have peace?
Our Lady said many things; one such quote would be “many souls go to Hell because they have no one to pray for them.” Not only is the Fatima message a peace plan but it has a lesson for us within the above quote. What do Jesus and Mary desire most of us? They want our charity. We are His instruments. God does not need us, but it is His Will that we co-operate with His grace and exercise true charity for the salvation of souls. “Many souls go to Hell because they have no one to pray for them.” Our Lady gave such a despairing quote to the Fatima seers (children).
This quote goes hand in hand with a new commandment which Jesus gave us. In John 13; 34) “A new commandment I give you, that you love one another: that as I have loved you, you also love one another.” A new COMMANDMENT Jesus called it! God reminds us of this in numerous other places through the Bible.
· “I urge, therefore, first of all, that supplication, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all men.”
–Timothy 2; 1
· “Brethren, my heart’s desire and my prayer to God, is on their behalf unto their salvation.” –Romans 10; 1
· “but others, save, snatching them from the fire.”
–Jude 1; 23
Ponder also our purpose; “Know, Love, and Serve God in this life.” What better way to Serve God than to obey His new commandment.
Your prayers for everyone can be more than just words. A prayer can be your daily disappointments, frustrations, your emotions, your work, tears, joys and even your thoughts; all offered up to God. Always remember that praying for others is how God answers us.
