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.

Jesus speaks:      My child why do you forsake Me
                            I give you so many gifts and
                            I love you so very much.

                            You worry for little details.
                            You make little problems mountains,
                                when they are mole hills.
                            You seek after details involving
                                your money and yet you
                                abandon your spiritual life.
                            That you would focus on the
                                life hereafter.

                            Oh My child do you not wish
                                to be with Me for all eternity
                                forever and ever and ever?
                            And some say the prayers
                                forever, and ever and ever. Amen.
                            And no sooner has the breath
                                left the words they spoke
                                and it seems they have forgotten
                                what they said.

                            Some go to Church for only
                                one hour a week.
                            Some do not go at all.
                            For so little time given
                                "How do you expect to have a relationship
                                    with your God."

                            Relationships are formed from time
                                spent together, love in the heart,
                                willingness to focus on the loved one,
                                to ponder their ways,
                                to want that connection with them.

                            Some do not recognize Me.
                            Some give Me a little mite
                                just in case there might be something
                                to this "God stuff".

                            "I will dole out my little 45 minutes
                                a week to you my Savior
                                and go out and cheat my neighbor
                                and call myself a Christian."

                            A man going on a journey
                                has before his eyes
                                the destination.

                            His heart is forever aware
                                of this vision.

                            His actions are purposeful
                                directed toward this end.

                            Nere does his mind wander,
                                for this is his focus and his end.

                            Every action being purposely directed
                                toward that end,
                                every desire in his heart
                                ignited with fire for the finish line.

                            You are like the little blind men
                                wandering in uncharted territory.

                            Your eyes see nothing.
                                Your heart is not ignited.

                            The fire in your eyes
                                is gone.

                            Oh My little dumb one,
                                I speak to you this way
                                to prove a point of your
                                ignorance, but My voice
                                filled with such love that
                                it would melt your heart.

                            Sing the song Come Holy Spirit.

                            Pray that your hearts are ignited
                                with fire that you realize the
                                direction that a man on a
                                charted course, that your steps
                                are steadfast, that your breath
                                comes in short pants of enthusiasm
                                from the excitement within your

                            Oh stop for no man for My
                                Words are your truth for
                                I wish you to write to my
                                world that their eyes will
                                be enlightened.

                            For the dumb man has a life
                                full of folly, a wanderer is
                                he, one who has no charted
                                path, one who breaks a leg
                                to get to the end of the dead
                                end street and when he
                                gets there, goes back the way
                                he came to find a new dead
                                end street, where one that is
                                filled with sick pleasure.

                            Oh the man has no dimension in
                                his mind -- not real dimension,
                                he does not have a chartered
                                course, he is a vagabond,
                                a wanderer. The guy who
                                sees nothing more than the
                                walls of the bus, his life
                                flows aimlessly in no direction.
                                His money to him is his god.
                                His fame is so important.
                                He looks for love in all the
                                wrong places and he misses
                                My love and I woo him and
                                he says to Me, "Nay Jesus
                                Christ, I do not want to love
                               You, I do not want to give You
                                my time, my thoughts, and
                                my heart."

                                "For I seek the foolish pleasures
                                of this earth and I want to be
                                stimulated by them. A day is a
                                day, a week is a week and I
                                wander aimlessly in no direction
                                that involves my spiritual life.
                                I wake to the sound of birds, but
                                I really do not hear them and
                                reflect on the Creator that made them;
                                I see the blue skies and the trees
                                and my heart is focused on my
                                own fame, my acceptance by others,
                                my love of foolish recognition here

                            "I want the 'dumb' man to look up to
                            "And the smart man to 'bow' low to
                            "I want to be noticed. I want them
                                to know that I am really something
                                to talk about."
                            "And when I get recognition from
                                others, I want more, I want
                                more to bow at my feet and
                                worship me a man. I like to
                                hear them talk about me as one
                                who is great."

                            "I want them to see me walk tall
                                and for them to say, 'There he is
                                the great man.' "

                            "For I had a friend close to me
                                that died and when I looked in
                                his coffin, I really didn't look
                                at all. The reality of his death
                                I would not let settle in my
                                soul, for I didn't want to think
                                it would ever happen to me for
                                my focus is on the here-below
                                and breath others used to praise
                                me makes me happy or so I

                            Then Jesus says:

                                Oh My senseless brother why
                                worry you for the man who praises
                                you one day and disowns you the
                                next for he is but an imperfect
                                soldier in this rat race of this
                                earth trying to make his way,
                                he may change as quickly as the
                                wind that blows or he may
                                try to be your buddy life long
                                but your soul was created for
                                My everlasting love and you
                                scorn Me your God, your Creator,
                                your Friend, your Brother, your All.

                                Your life is temporary here
                            below. Learn a lesson from the
                            flowers that died and the trees
                            that bend to the ground and
                            wither and fade, some are struck
                            down dead by lightening.

                                For I am your God, the Creator,
                            the one who made you, watches you
                            like a little animal in a maze
                            run from one foolish pleasure to
                            another to be left empty, thirsty,
                            heart broken and longing for the
                            taste of My life inside of you
                            that can fill you and make you

                                Oh child that you would know
                            Me, that you would long for Me,
                            that you would know My gifts are
                            everlasting, that you would know
                            that you were created for Me
                            that you would know these things
                            you search for are leaving you




March 8, 2004 message continues

Jesus speaks:         My dear priests, My Heart is
                            on-fire for My people. I have called
                            you to My Heart, to My Eucharistic
                            Heart to taste the pleasures of My
                            love, to tell My people of My
                            undaunted love for them -- to show
                            them through your peace and love
                            inside that you are a man of
                            holy cloth, that you have taste, the
                            joy of the Eucharist and your heart
                            is burning to tell them of this pleasure.

                                Oh My beloved priests, how deeply
                            I love thee and want to lavishly
                            outpour My love to you. You have
                            been chosen by Me to reach My
                            people, oh My priests -- they are so
                            hungry, I want you to feed them
                            with My Body and Blood.

                                Come to My Heart, give yourself
                            to Me. I am a vat of endless love --
                            you are searching and I can fill you.

                            Song: God's Love

                            when you come to be with Me. You
                            can sort out all the information all
                            that you have been given from others
                            more easily and see your answers

We ask the Blood of Jesus be spread on us, the Shepherds of Christ Movement, Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, the Church and the world.
