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.

Messenger:  Please pray for an important intention.


        Please pray for 5 urgent intentions!

Pray for a special priest and Father Mike,
Spread the Blood of Jesus on all involved, cast the devil far
away, ask for the special coming of the Holy Spirit in a special way
and consecrate all hearts to the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart.

June 31st Holy Spirit Novena Scripture selection is Day 3 Period 2. The Novena Rosary Mystery for June 31st is Glorious.

Messenger: We do not have funds for rosary beads for rosary makers. 
                    Please help us.

We desperately need funds.

                    Pray for 2 urgent intentions


June 30, 2001

Messenger:         Jesus, I don't want thoughts of jealousy.
                                I don't want to be prideful to
                                stop anyone from doing God's will.

                            My focus is Thee, to be closer and more
                                one with You as I journey through
                                this life seeking greater happiness
                                in pleasing You.

                            My desire is to have the deepest union possible
                                with Him for all eternity.

                            I want oneness with Him.

                            I want to be dependent on Him.

                            I want what He wants to happen.

                            I want to become more and more united to
                                Him, I want to love Him more
                                and more.

                            That takes letting go and surrender.

                            That takes letting things unfold according
                                to His plan.

                            That takes loving others because 
                                He wants me to.

                            That takes carrying the cross many times
                                when people don't understand
                                or allow me to share my feelings
                                as I desire.

                            That takes being so consumed with the
                                desire to help save souls that we
                                sacrifice by not complaining
                                sometimes when we want to.

                            It takes trust in the Sacred Heart.
                            It takes a deep prayer life.

                            It takes silent prayer whenever we
                                have a special need and must just
                                be patient and wait.

                            It takes God's time.
                            It takes surrender to His plan.

                            It takes love, wanting to let go and
                                allow others to develop their
                                talents so all can grow and
                                work on this work together.

                            I am a messenger from God, but from

                                all I have learned I deliver this message

                                today as He directs meit takes

                                surrender, allowing God to work in

                                us in all we do.

                            His plan is the only plan I want.

                            My ultimate goalto be more deeply united
                                with Him here below and have the
                                deepest union possible with Him in heaven.

                            The word is peace.


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.

June 30, 2001 message continues

Messenger:         Oh God help us to realize the importance

                                of the yellow and red books. Help us

                                not to be prideful and seek for

                                things after our own recognition,

                                help us to just genuinely love

                                God and our brothers and want

                                to help them and grow in

                                greater perfection ourselves.

                            Help us not to be haughty.

                            Help us to be loving.

                            Help us to sing from the bottom of

                                our hearts

                                "Thy will be done on earth as
                                    it is in heaven."

                            God gives us each other.

                            We must let go and just want to love.

                            People will seem to hurt us.

                            How do we pray the Our Father?

                            Today I pray with you with all my


                                "Forgive us our trespasses as we
                                    forgive those who trespass
                                    against us and lead us not
                                    into temptation, but deliver
                                    us from evil. Amen."

                                For He has all the power.

                                We live to serve Him.

                                We must give ourselves over to Him.


                            Think of how much effort we

                                spend trying to prove who is

                                right and who is wrong.

                            We must seek after the truth but many 

                                times we waste a lot of time and 

                                energy trying to prove things.

                            We must help to build up the Kingdom of God.

                            We must live to please Him.

Refuse to Worry

God's Blue Book II Cover

January 15, 1994 4:50 a.m.

Jesus: I am Jesus, Your Savior. When you are tired and weary, come to Me. I wait for you as would a doting mother, ready to kiss your little wounds and send you out to play.

    I love you so, little one. Come and be with Me in your heart. Do not worry about anything concerning this book. My hand is in everything and I will see to its publishing Myself. Do you fret and fume for nothing? I am God. Why should you worry for the work of God? Do you not think I will take care of My own work? I tend to everything that needs to be done in your life. You are so precious to Me. There is not one thing that happens that I have not consented to.

    To be able to be in the midst of adversity and struggle and say, "God's hand is here and He knows what is happening; I will let go of my anxiety and be at peace," is to reach a great plateau of trust in Me! Trust in Me in all your trials. Refuse to worry. What good does such a needless task perform? If I am God and I am there in every moment of your life and you truly believe it, what are you doing letting yourself worry?

    Child, I have so much love for you that I died on the a cross for you. Look at Me there. I spread My arms and came for you. I love you this much, this very day. How do I make you realize how much you mean to Me? Well, I am here in everything you are experiencing. There is not one thing that happens without My consent. Do you hear Me? Think of one of your little hairs falling out. I am that hyper-vigilant. I know whence that hair came. I know the very pore on your head it fell from.

    If I, Jesus, am that attentive to you and everything that is happening with you, what are you doing worrying? It is your trust and faith in Me that gives you peace. Practice letting go on all matters. Refuse to worry. Place every care in My hands and trust I will tend to it. You, My child, are so precious. I want you to know how I am truly there, loving you and watching you and guarding you.

    I watch you like a doting mother lest you stumble and fall and lose your way. In that little trial, practice turning it over to Me. Trust in Me. It is an act of your will to truly trust Me or to worry about your problem.

    Listen to Me saying, "Child, I love you, child, I am love, child, don't worry. Turn your burden over to Me." You can be free of worry if you let go. Sail away in your hot air balloon. Drop the package of worries at the foot of My cross and sail away in a trouble-free sky.

    You are lifted to such heights in My love! I am so powerful. I can do all things. I am working in your life at every moment. I never leave you abandoned. Take this opportunity to get closer to Me.

    It is in your trials you are taught how to trust. Do not curse the dark nights. Come to Me and let Me light your way. Take each trial as an opportunity to get closer to Me. Ascend the ladder to trust in the Lord. You develop trust a step at a time. Trust must be developed by you. Pray that you will learn all the lessons on trust I am sending you.

    You are so favored, My little sweet one. I love you. I love you. I love you. Come to Me weary and leave carefree. Only I can take a burdened heart and give it rest. Do not go to your brothers and complain. Keep reading My letters to you (December 30, 1993). Know which letters are those that set you free of worry.

Note: In His December 30 letter He said, "It is in acceptance of all things that you are drawn closer to Me. Do not try to throw back into My face the little opportunity for grace you receive. Child, I am ever by your side and I am ever teaching you. Know that My hand is in everything you are experiencing. I am vigilant and by your side. Nothing happens to you that I have not consented to. I love you. Trust in Me."

R. Jesus, I trust in you!

Jesus: Pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. I am there with you. Turn to Me. Turn to Me alone and I will give you rest. Oh, you, who are heavily burdened, I will give you rest!

Revelation 2: 2-5

    I know your activities, your hard work and your perseverance. I know you cannot stand wicked people, and how you put to the test those who were self–styled apostles, and found them false. I know too that you have perseverance, and have suffered for my name without growing tired. Nevertheless, I have this complaint to make: you have less love now than formerly. Think where you were before you fell; repent, and behave as you did at first, or else, if you will not repent, I shall come to you and take your lamp–stand from its place.

How Do I Love Thee, Jesus?

God's Blue Book III Cover

April 19, 1994 at Father Smith's Chapel 9:45a.m.  

R. How do I love You, Jesus? I love You according to where I am in my heart. Do I judge my brothers-some are okay and some I want to avoid? Do I see with Your eyes, God, every child most precious to You.

    How do I love You, Jesus? Am I eager to spread Your love to the hurting ones as well as the nice ones? Do I remember how You loved all to Your death? You did not die just for some. You died for the precious love of each and every soul.

    How do I love You, Jesus? Do I love You in my brothers this day, or do I think, "Tomorrow I will love them all the way He wants." Every minute of every day is an opportunity for me to love my hurting brothers. If I miss moments in this day to love, they miss the love You want to give to them through me.

    How do I love You, Jesus? How will I love the people You put in my path today? Will I love at all? Will my heart be fixed on You, or will I think of my own selfish interests and let a golden opportunity slip through my fingers?

    How did I love You, Jesus, this day? I cannot love, Jesus, as You did. I need Your Heart to live in me. I need my heart to be filled with Your love. Oh, Jesus, let me join my heart to Yours. Teach me to love, as You so desire, all my brothers with a heart of love.

    How did I love You, Jesus, this day? I need You, Lord. I need Your grace. I need You joined to me. Make me selfless and empty, ready to be filled by You. Help me to love with a heart full of Your love. Your way is not easy, Lord. I cannot do it without You, working in me. Join my heart in love to You that I might love as You desire. I love You, Jesus, my Lord, my God, my all. How can I love You as I ought? Do I want to love You, Lord, in my brothers? Do I choose to love?

    Do I forgive, Lord? Do I forgive as You did when You forgave those who crucified You? Do I see how You showed me the way to love? You are so beautiful, Lord. You showed the way to love and forgiveness. Teach me Your ways, Lord. When You taught them Your ways of love, Lord, You were not popular. They persecuted You. They did not want to hear Your ways. Help me to be open, Lord, to the changes You want to occur in me so I can grow to be the light You want to shine in this dark world.

Jesus: My child, there is no growth if the plant remains the same. Be ready to be pruned and plucked, cut back, watered, fertilized. Growth is not always easy, but what a beautiful plant in the end. Be ready for the pruning. Be ready for all that I send you. Be open and ready, for the day of the Lord is at hand. Every day you will be used to help others to grow in My love. Your trials are necessary for your growth. Without the trials you will not learn the teachings you need to do the work. Be an open door, accept all I send through the door and praise Him Who loves you dearly.

    You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill will shine brightly with the love of God radiating from the hearts of those who dwell there. I call you, My child, to love one another. This will light the darkest night. I am your Jesus, Son of the Living God. I am that light that shines from you. Be open to Me. Be ready, for My day is at hand and I operate from you. I love you, My beloved ones. Harken to My call. It is an urgent call from Him Who loves you dearly and cries out for the love of My beloved little ones who are in darkness. Do not be distracted by this world. Focus on Me and My love. I am the light that shines in the darkness. Let My light shine from your souls.

A Note from the President of Shepherds of Christ:

If you are devoted to Our Lady's rosary, we need your help! A member of our ministry is very devoted to Our Blessed Mother and he is helping to teach us how to grow our volunteer rosary makers. He estimates that we will need approximately $37,000 this year for beads alone! This translates into 22,339,500 rosary beads (yes, 22 million beads) assembled by volunteers into 378 thousand rosaries. The biggest users of our rosaries are the Catholic schools, who requested more than 100,000 rosaries last year.

Can you help us? I appeal to you for funds, whether large or small. We give because we love God, we love our Blessed Mother, and we love souls. We will accept gifts in many forms, besides cash or check donations, we can receive gifts directly in the form of stocks or property. These gifts can offer large tax advantages to the donor and increase the monetary value of the gift to us. Also if you can help assemble rosaries we need your help! If you can help us in anyway, please call or write us. God Bless!

I love you,
John Weickert




A rosary can be used to pray for healing. It is powerful to unite our prayers to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and pray through the powerful intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater.

In times of trouble, for special prayer, we can use our rosary and pray as follows.

A Rosary for Healing or for Someone with Cancer.

On one Hail Mary bead or as many as you desire, say: 

May God heal                     through the intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater in union with the Mass and all the Masses being celebrated around the world.

Pray the Hail Mary or Hail Mary's then pray this after the Hail Mary.

May the cancer be uprooted and thrown into the sea.

We believe with all our hearts.

After the Glory Be — pray the following petition.

May                     be healed through the intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater if it be the holy will of God.

Note: You can look at Mary on the image rosary while you pray this rosary.

Note: The above section can be printed out from a PDF file, and you can pray the rosary looking at the pictures.


December 17, 2000, Mary speaks:

Help me to circulate my red and blue
    Rosary Books and the
    prayers my Son gives to you.

This is a gift we give you.
All the revelations are gifts given to you.
My Son is the Light of the World.
He is Jesus born in a stable.
