A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb, the Bridegroom of the Soul
Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.
Messenger: Include Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center in 6:20 prayers.
Excerpt from September 8, 2000, Daily Message.
Messenger: I ask you to pray for a very important intention for the Movement that could help to bring about the Reign of the Sacred Heart and help save souls.
Please pray as never before. Please pray with us hourly.
(End of excerpt from September 8, 2000, Daily Message.)
Jesus speaks: My beloved apostles,
I ask you to pray and do not be distracted by Satan. Live to do God's will, do not let others persuade you when it is not God's will. Discern what you must do.
I love you, Jesus.
Pray to do God's will.
September 9, 2000 - Second Message
Jesus speaks: Sometimes a decision can be so hard to make, you want to do God's will and yet two things are conflicting.
Sometimes others that you love very much want you to do something and you want to be with them, but what they want you to do, you do not feel is God's will for you.
You are torn between love of them and doing as they desire and doing what you believe to be right for you.
I give you this direction ---- Pray--
Pray the Hourly Novena--Pray the Our Father-
Pray that all people of the earth do the will of God.
A good idea is not always the will of God, what might be the will of God for a certain person may not be the will of God for you at that time.
A Jesuit priest cannot be a Marianist priest, a Glenmary priest, a Trappist monk. He must obey the rules put before him in his order and follow the direction that community professes.
Messenger: Our founder gave this example about doing God's will. If a young man is of age and called to the priesthood and his parents oppose his decision, he must follow what he believes the will of God is for him.
Children must obey their parents when they are of younger ages unless they are told to do something sinful.
Sometimes parents want their children to do what they, the parents, want and it is not right for the young adult who knows God is calling him in a certain way.
Jesus speaks: I give you this direction, you must pray to do God's will.
If a young unmarried woman gives in to sexual intercourse with the man she loves because she wants him to be happy, it is in fact unloving to do so, because sexual intercourse before marriage is a sin. It is not loving to give in to someone because he wants something so much, if it will cause a person to be separated from God through sin.
LOVE is tough. Praying to the Holy Spirit will help you to live according to God's will. Giving your hearts to Me and My Mother will help you live according to God's will.
Do not give in to someone if it is sinful. You must do God's will. It is not loving to sin because someone wishes you to commit an act. It is not loving at all.
LOVE is tough--rooted in God's will.
Pray to God for guidance.
September 9, 2000 - Third Message
Jesus speaks: My dear apostles and My servants, I write to you.
Pray that all do the WILL OF GOD. Pray Holy Spirit Novena and My prayer manual .
The devil can create such confusion in a holy soul trying to do God's will. You must trust and love one another, but because of so much evil you must carefully discern what is truth. You take in so much advice from others, some good for you, some not so good. You must work with each other in love and trust. What do you do? You must spend that time in prayer alone with Me so you can sort out in that quiet time what God's will is for you. Before the tabernacle you receive special grace from Me to help you do God's will. I make My will known to you in your heart in those quiet moments. If you don't spend the time alone with Me, you hear all the voices of those around you. Satan will work in that confusion in the holy soul. You want the right answer that comes from Me. Open My Blue Books, that will help you, and listen to your heart. Pray the Words of Surrender.
Words of Surrender of a Soul
Words of Consecration to God
Today Lord, (today's date), I give You my entire will-
I give You all my liberties, I want to love and serve You as You desire.
I surrender myself to You.
I ask You to run my life.
I ask You to help me act like You, Jesus, and like Your Mother Mary.
God, this day I consecrate myself to You.
I am (name) , Your beloved child, guide me on my way now as I go about my day (or if in Church) as I leave Your Eucharistic presence.
Jesus speaks: Pray Prayer for Union with Jesus.
Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.
I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.
I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.
When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.
-God's Blue Book, January 17, 1994
Jesus speaks: Pray the Our Father.
Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. Amen.
Jesus speaks: Pray the Words of Surrender and the Prayer for Union all day.
Do not look for a quick solution, realize great grace is granted in enduring the suffering of indecision until you clearly know God's will for you. Do not give in to hasty decisions to relieve that suffering of "not knowing what to do." Be patient and seek God's will in all things. Every moment. Do not be focused on what other's will say about you, be focused on Me and your desire to serve Me.
Pray to be trusting regarding those you must trust in love and life, but ultimately trust in My Sacred Heart always. I am with you forever.
Live to serve Me. Spend that time alone with Me every day.
Jesus speaks: In the Reign of the Sacred Heart there will be peace and everyone will do My Father's will.
Messenger: I quote this excerpt from our founder's book, Response to God's Love.
Excerpt from Response to God's Love
In the quiet of prayer, we have the opportunity to gather up what would otherwise become the fragmented, nonintegrated pieces of our lives. Prayer is meant to be a constructive and integrative force that will help us delineate more clearly our self-identity. Through the light of prayer, we see how the pieces fit together, how the mysterious self in its uniqueness is meant to give shape and meaning to all facets of our existence.

Messenger: Taken September 7, 2000, as directed by our Lady.
Messenger: These two pictures were taken at the same time around noon, September 7, 2000, as requested by Our Lady so they would appear on the Internet.
Both were taken with the same camera with the same automatic camera setting of the same Sorrowful Mother statue at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center.
One picture has a golden light.
This is the statue that she appeared in daily for 14 months, July 5, 1994 to September 5, 1995.
Messenger: Please pray for Perry.
Mary speaks: I stood beneath the cross of my Son, and my Heart was in such pain for I saw Him before my eyes. I saw Him covered with blood. I saw Him die. My Heart, my children, my Heart to watch my Son, but my Heart, my Heart, how I suffered for my little children of the world that give in to this world and give up the love of my Son. O my little children of light, I give you this message. Carry this light into the darkness for your Mother Mary, for I stood beneath the cross and I cried. I cried for the little ones. I cried for the young ones, the ones that do not care and will lose their souls. How do I make you see for you will not listen to me? What can I do? I come. I appear. I beg. I plead. I give you these gifts from my Son, and you reject me. I do not deliver messages very often anymore for I have been ignored. The message is the same. You do not read the messages I have given to you. Please help me. Help the little children. I appear. I appear. I appear, and I am ignored. I stood beneath the cross, and I cried. I cried, and my Heart was in such anguish for my little children, for I am searching for them this day as I searched for the Child Jesus. Please, please help me. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. I am Mary, your Mother. I ask you to help my children. You are my children of light.
Song: O Lady of Light, shining so bright, be with us this day, guiding our way, O Lady, O Lady of Light.
Mary speaks: I appear to you as Our Mother of Sorrows.
