Mary TV Daily Reflection 8/28/2014 - Be Open to God's Will

St. Augustine, Bishop and Doctor of the Church

Dear Family of Mary!

"Dear children! Pray for my intentions, because Satan wants to destroy my plan which I have here and to steal your peace. Therefore, little children, pray, pray, pray that God can act through each of you. May your hearts be open to God's will. I love you and bless you with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call." (August 25, 2014)

Our Lady gave a prayer to Jelena Vasilj in 1985 that contains a plea to be able to overcome evil in our lives and do the good. It seems like this prayer might be helpful for us as we try to respond to this message. Satan is a thief and will stop at nothing to take our peace and our faith away. He wants to kill our souls. So we must learn how to fight him at every level. As we fight, we will become strong. Our faith will grow. Jesus is with us to give us the victory.

The wording of the prayer is a bit difficult, but I think you will understand it well. We want to pray, pray, pray that God can act through us. We want to be open to God's will.

Petition to God
  (Given by Our Lady to Jelena Vasilj, 6/22/1985)

Recite 3 Glory Be's

Oh God, our heart is in deep obscurity,
in spite of our union to Your Heart.
Our heart is struggling between You and satan;
do not permit it to be in this manner!

Every time that the heart is divided
between good and evil,
let it be enlightened by Your light
and let it be unified.
Never permit,
for there to be able to exist in us two loves,
that there can never co-exist in us two faiths,
and that there can never co-exist in us;
lying and sincerity,
love and hatred,
honesty and dishonesty,
humility and pride.
Help us on the contrary,
so that our hearts may be elevated toward You
just like that of a child.
May our heart be ravished with peace
and continue to always have the nostalgia of it.

May Your Holy will and Your love
find a permanent place in us, that at least
sometimes we would really wish to be Your
children and when, Oh Lord,
we will desire to be Your children,
remember our past desires
and help us to receive You again.

We open our hearts to you
so that Your holy love will remain in us.
We open our souls to you,
so that they may be touched by Your holy mercy
which will help us to see clearly all our sins,
and will make us realize,
that which makes us impure is sin.

God, we want to be Your children,
humble and devout,
to the point of becoming your cherished and
sincere children,
such as only the Father
would be able to desire that we be.
Help us, Jesus our brother,
to obtain the goodness of the Father in our regard,
and to be good to Him.
Help us Jesus,
to understand well what God gives us,
although sometimes we fail to perform a good act,
as though it were for us an evil.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
