Thirsty Thursday: One with GOD

In ♥ & Soul, Community, Home Sweet Home, Relationships, Thirsty Thursday, Travel, Weekly Wonders, Yours Truly on 07/02/2015 at 22:00

My Church celebrated our ☼milestone☼ anniversary of our ♥Adoration♥ †Chapel† last night!

During his homily, our Bishop told us of five ways to pray at the Blessed Sacrament:

  1. Praise
  2. Contrition
  3. THANKSgiving
  4. Petitions
  5. Communion

The fifth type means to simply be with GOD. Our Bishop also reminded us that the Eucharist and Perpetual Adoration both our important, yet taking the Body and Blood of CHRIST is the top priority of our faith.

Thirsty Thursday: Supplication Way

The Prayer Way† wraps up with Supplication, for others, and ourselves.

When we or others who we know about are in need, we petition prayers for GOD to grant those requests. At our Advent Penance last week, I confessed to the priest about my admitted resentment toward my mother and my sorrow for feeling like I’m breaking the 4th Commandment. He advised me to accept our own and others’ weaknesses and appreciate that I still have my mother around. Therefore, I continue to give gratitude for my blessings and pray for ~ as well as help ~ those less fortunate, especially those who have experienced loss of loved ones, as well as remind myself that CHRIST JESUS had to bear His Cross and endure torture. We maintain our faith and ♥love♥ in Him to lead us along His righteous path toward Heaven.

In †GOD† we trust …

Here are the rest of our ACTs to practice everyday as we pray

Our Lady of Guadalupe (who we celebrate mañana)

O Most Pure Lady of Guadalupe, obtain for me from your divine Son the forgiveness of my sins, blessings on my work, healing of my illnesses and needs, and everything that you believe is best for me and for my family. O Blessed Mother of †GOD†! Do not despise our supplications, but instead, free us from all danger. O Lady full of glory and of blessings, we ask all these things through †CHRIST JESUS† Our †LORD†. Amen.

Everything that I do be all about the ☼LORD†
I’ve been lifting up †prayer† instead of being bored
Getting lifted by my ♥heart♥ and ☼soul☼

In my life
So I maintain thrive and strife
In the ☼morning☼, noon, and night, at all times everyday
†The Prayer Way, the Prayer Way†

†The Prayer Way†, by Elaine Dispo (Bust a Flow)

I went the extra mile to freestyle from another song to remind us about the importance of leading a prayerful life.

Recently, Bishop Mike sent me a newsletter* with valuable information, including the ACTS acronym that stands for these prayer divisions that appeared on the first page and also in my own Religious Education teachings of loving GOD** and prayer***:

*How to Pray

  • Adoration♥ ~ **loving GOD
  • Contrition† 
  • Thanksgiving♣ ~ **thanking GOD
  • Supplication☼ ~ ***petition (**asking GOD for things we need) and ***intercession (**praying for other people)

We’ll review each prayer division individually in the next Thirsty Thursday segments. Meanwhile,

Keep shining * Keep smiling * Keep †praying† * Keep following GOD’s perfect plan!!!
