Prayers

Jesus said: “I am the vine, you are the branches, whoever remains in me will bear much fruit. Apart from me you can do nothing.” (John 15)

Here at The Goretti Group, we strive to take Jesus at His word. Remaining rooted in the vine who is Jesus, we will bear much fruit.  How do we do this? We pray without ceasing. We cling to the lifeline that is our Lord and let His Holy Spirit run the show, as we simply seek to cooperate with the grace He is pouring out. We believe our prayers have and will continue to make a difference in the lives of people around the world.

Jesus promised this:

“Whoever believes in me will do the works that I do, and will do greater ones than these,  because I am going to the Father.  And whatever you ask in my name, I will do, so that the  Father may be glorified in the Son.  If you ask anything of me in my name, I will do it.” (John 14:  12-14).

“Ask and you will receive…” (Matthew 7:7)

“Again, [amen,] I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything for which they are to  pray, it shall be granted to them by my heavenly Father.  For where two or three are gathered  together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” (Matthew 19-20) 

So, let us take Jesus up on His promise, and let us band together in prayer for purity. Your prayers, fasting and sacrifices make a difference! Together, as the Body in Christ, we can continue His healing work on earth and bring about a new kind of culture: one of freedom, peace and purity.

“Finally, draw your strength from the Lord and from his mighty power.  Put on the armor of God so that you may be able to stand firm against the tactics of the devil.  For our struggle is not with flesh and blood but with the principalities, with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil spirits in the heavens.  Therefore, put on the armor of God, that you may be able to resist on the evil day and, having done everything, to hold your ground.  So stand fast with your loins girded in truth, clothed with righteousness as a breastplate, and your feet shod in readiness for the gospel of peace.  In all circumstances, hold faith as a shield, to quench all [the] flaming arrows of the evil one.  And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.  With all prayer and supplication, pray at every opportunity in the Spirit. To that end, be watchful with all perseverance and supplication for all the holy ones…” (St. Paul, Ephesians 6:10-18)

We are in a battle and our weapon is our prayer.  Won’t you add prayer ammunition to our tank so we can bring the light and love of Christ to obliterate the darkness of the enemies lies?
