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.
Jesus speaks: I ask you to spread the July 21, 2000 message and to read and study it. I beg you to help Me reach My precious souls, I love you so.
There are many people that have given their lives in this Movement to reach you and the others in the world. Please pray for them, for their fervor, for grace for them.
Every person I have called is so important to the Father's plan. You must study the messages so you know what I am saying, so you follow the plan of the Father and just don't do it the old way or your way. I am speaking to you, I am the Good Shepherd, My sheep hear My voice and follow Me.
Messenger: I was overwhelmed with gratitude for all the gifts He has given us. I pleaded and begged at the Mass for souls, oh the precious souls He gave His life for. How much He loves them. We must unite and pray, help in the act of redemption. I was overwhelmed with the love I feel from others in the Movement and so filled with gratitude for them.
Jesus speaks: I LOVE YOU SO MUCH.
Jesus speaks: MY DEAR ONES, IT IS LOVE I WANT. I WANT YOU TO LOVE GOD AND LOVE EACH OTHER -
LOVE CAN BE TOUGH SOMETIMES.
Messenger: Father, thank You for Your gifts to us.
I love you, Jesus.
I love you, Holy Spirit.
I love you, Mary.
Thank you for the Eucharist,
Thank you for our Church,
Thank you for Your Movement, Shepherds of Christ.
I am ___________ your little child.
July 24, 2000 - Second Message
Jesus speaks: I write to you about the healing services held on Tuesday and for the Sidney center in particular. This message can be given from the centers to all attending Tuesday healing services.
I say this: I attach special graces for healing on Tuesdays. I wish as many services to be held as possible on Tuesdays for the spiritual healing of all priests, sisters, and all religious and the people of the world. I ask you to pray on Tuesdays for your priests, the Church and the world and healing of all people.
In Sidney, I will attach special graces to the prayer meeting I have called there. As the centers pray on Tuesdays at 6:20, you must realize how important it is that you pray as a body with all your heart. Know that the Father listens to your heartfelt prayers and He loves you so much. He wants you to come and pray, asking for help and forgiveness, pleading for mercy and grace. The Father loves His little children to come together and pray for the flock.
Jesus speaks: I want oneness of My flock.
The Father wants you united.
I ask you to read the Gospel of yesterday's Mass.
Mark 6: 30-34
First miracle of the loaves
The apostles rejoined Jesus and told him all they had done and taught. And he said to them, Come away to some lonely place all by yourselves and rest for a while; for there were so many coming and going that there was no time for them even to eat. So they went off in the boat to a lonely place where they could be by themselves. But people saw them going, and many recognised them; and from every town they all hurried to the place on foot and reached it before them. So as he stepped ashore he saw a large crowd; and he took pity on them because they were like sheep without a shepherd, and he set himself to teach them at some length.
Jesus speaks: Oh, My children, pray the prayer on the card.
Jesus speaks: And spread it to the nursing homes, prisons, children. The people of the earth must pray the Morning Offering.
I ask you to make available at the Sidney center this message and the message of July 21, 2000.
OH PRAY FOR HEALING, PLEASE.
Jesus speaks: Oh My children, you must spread the prayers I give you.
I am asking My Sidney center to help Me by praying there, and I ask them and all other fervent apostles to see their roles as apostles.
Jesus speaks: The prayers must be spread and more people praying. I give you the red prayer book that you will pray for your priests, the Church and the world.
I give you my yellow prayer book, that you will be united as ONE. I want you praying for the ONENESS united to the Mass, praying for the gifts of the Holy Spirit, praying for protection with My Blood, and begging as you pray as a body for healing and the coming of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus speaks: You must pray the rosary.
In praying these prayers as I have designated you make great reparation to Our Hearts. The Father is pleased when you pray as I have directed you. He will grant grace to the earth and have mercy on you.
I will give great graces of healing, especially spiritual healing, on Tuesdays.
I ask for this, that all that possibly can join on Tuesdays and use the 6:20 format for healing in the hearts for yourselves and your families, for the members of the Church, especially priests and religious, and for healing for the souls of the earth.
I will grant great graces of healing for souls on this night. All who can should come before the tabernacle and pray at 6:20 or pray wherever possible.
I want you to use the 6:20 format, jiffy sheet. This was given on Pentecost this year. Pass out these little red and yellow books and the jiffy sheets when people tell you of problems, pass them out to all. Try to get a prayer chapter in your church. If it is impossible to get one in your church on Tuesday, try another night. Prayers are held every night, but this message is a plea to try to gather especially on Tuesday for healing.
I wish a strong body of associates that will pray the prayers and help when they can. I am calling associates to come and help with My mission.
Sidney is the beginning of other sub-centers for this purpose: to spread the prayer books, Blue Books and priestly newsletters and help with the rosary program.
I want all offering their day as a sacrifice united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
My dear Father, I offer you this day all my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings in union with Jesus in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world, in the Holy Spirit.
I unite with our Mother Mary, all the angels and saints, and all the souls in purgatory to pray to the Father for myself, for each member of my family, for my friends, for all people throughout the world, for all the souls in purgatory, and for all other intentions of the Sacred Heart.
I love You, Jesus, and I give You my heart. I love you, Mary, and I give you my heart.
My dear Father, I offer You this day all my prayers, works, joys and sufferings, my every breath, my every heartbeat, my every thought, all my actions, in union with Jesus in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world, in the Holy Spirit. I pray the Holy Spirit is with me every second today, enlightening me to do the will of the Father and filling me with the fire of God's love.
I ask Jesus and Mary to be one in me in all that I do and I unite with all the angels and saints and souls in purgatory to pray continually to the Father for these intercessions, in this prayer, for this day.
For myself, I pray for grace-abundant grace, to know and love God more and more and to follow the will of the Father. I pray to the Holy Spirit to transform me in the heart of Mary to be more and more like Jesus. I pray that I can forever dwell in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. I pray for conversion of all those I hold dear who need conversion. I pray for each member of my family that they will be filled with Your abundant grace to grow in their knowledge and love of God.
I pray for all my friends that they will receive abundant grace to carry out the great plan of the Father, that they will grow forever closer to Jesus' Heart through Mary's heart, that we will all be led by the Holy Spirit to do His work, that we will, together, carry out the plan of the Father as He intends us to, to spread the love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Mary's heart to this world.
Jesus, I pray for myself so the Holy Spirit descends upon me and opens my heart to Your love so I will grow more and more deeply in union with You. I pray that I do not worry what other people think but try always to please the Father and do His will. I pray that I may help lead many to Your burning love.
I pray for the following people in particular that they will be filled with the Spirit and grow deeply in their union with You, that they will receive abundant graces to know, love and serve You more. (Include special friends by name...)
I pray for priests the world over, for the success of the Priestly Newsletter, the Chapters and for the finances needed for the Newsletter. I pray for the circulation of the Blue Book messages, rosary meditations and tapes. I pray for all those involved in the publication of these messages.
I pray that You will shower Your abundant graces onto the priests reading the Newsletter the people reading and hearing the Blue Book messages and Rosary Meditations and all of Fr. Carter's publications.
We pray for the intentions we hold deep within our hearts, for our families and friends, for those requesting our prayers. We pray for children the world over and for the souls in purgatory. We ask God to shower His abundant grace on us and the members of our Shepherds of Christ chapter so that we may grow more and more in our knowledge and love of God.
We consecrate ourselves to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. We pray for Father Carter, for Father Smith, for Rita Ring, and for John Weickert, for all leaders and helpers in the Shepherds of Christ Movement, for Shepherds of Christ Ministries, and Our Lady of Light Ministry. We pray for all those who are working in these ministries.
We bind ourselves and our children and our friends to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. We place the precious blood of Jesus on ourselves, and all we touch, so that we will be protected from the evil one. We pray to St. Michael to cast the devil into hell.
We love You, God, we love You, we love You. We beg that we may receive the grace to love You more and more deeply. We adore You, we praise You, our beloved Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
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
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: My dear Sidney, I am calling you to help Me by praying My prayers and spreading My prayers and My Movement to the world. I love you so much. This is a special calling from Me. I am the Sacred Heart.
There is a soul on the edge of death now–
Will you help by praying for your Church and the world and your priests?
I love you. Will you help to bring about the Reign of My Sacred Heart?
Mary speaks: You must expand by spreading the prayers and the rosary to the world.
This will help bring peace.
I am the Queen of Peace.
Jesus speaks: I am the Good Shepherd, these are My prayers, the prayers I give to help renew the Church and the world, all prayer chapters are asked to include these prayers (found in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual). As My Apostles and Shepherds I ask you to encourage all existing Chapters to try to encourage all existing prayer groups to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Encourage all Churches to pray these prayers. It is most urgent that the people of this earth concur with the Father's wishes to begin Prayer Chapters. This is an urgent request from the Good Shepherd. The flock will become one when they have given their hearts to Jesus and Mary. Encourage all priests to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Your world will be lighted with great light as the people of this earth pray these prayers.
My promise is this to you My beloved earth: When you give your heart to Me and spread the devotion to My Sacred Heart, I will write your name In My Heart. I promise to give the greatest graces when you pray these prayers for renewal of the Church and the world and take all who pray them deeply into My Heart. The prayers I give will bring about the reign of My Sacred Heart and the triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart. I am Jesus Christ, this is My message of January 22, 1998, Please circulate this message to your world. I am the Good Shepherd, I know Mine and Mine know Me and they follow Me. Grace My Shepherds, I will give you the greatest graces for spreading these words to this earth and to your Church. I love you, I am Jesus Christ, the Son of Man, it is the Plan of the Father that Prayer Chapters are begun immediately and the Priestly Newsletter is given to all priests. The Voice of the Good Shepherd speaks through it.
Excerpt from July 21, 2000 daily message
Messenger: In a few days on July 31, it will be the wonderful feast of our beloved St. Ignatius Loyola. The nine day period before begins July 23. Let's all join together and ask St. Ignatius to intercede to God to grant grace that the Jesuits will help us more and more in this mission. That the Jesuits will help us spreading the priestly newsletter and the consecration and rosary to the earth and all that is needed to help spread the devotion to the Sacred Heart as Jesus desires. We will pray in this 9 day period for ourselves and our calling to help bring about the Reign of the Sacred Heart. We will pray for the Jesuits, whom we love, through the intercession of St. Ignatius.
I love St. Ignatius so much. Every July 31, I have received the most wonderful graces on this Feast at Mass that day. I feel really close to St. Francis Xavier, too. I think we should pray through his powerful intercession and that of St. Claude La Columbiere and St. Margaret Mary.
Let's make this nine day novena praying through their powerful intercession.

Seek True Treasures
February 17, 1994 5:30 a.m.
Jesus speaks: My little ones, how are you doing? Are you getting bogged down in this weather? Do you know yet that you do not control the elements? You live every day and you think you have much to do to control your actions but you do not see the eyes of Him Who watches over you with loving care.
I give to you this earth and all you need to sustain your life here. Man worries about the earth and if this or that will happen. Man has become so independent that he thinks he controls all things and he needs to worry about his present and future.
You, My favored, chosen ones, know that life here lasts but a moment and like smoke it is gone without a trace. Look at your ancestors. So few people ever remember their ancestors, yet your ancestors thought that at every moment their actions were so crucial. Little ones, you hold on to life. You hold on to these little happenings here and you worry in vain! Look at the big picture, My little ones. Here today, gone tomorrow, and where are you going?
The days go by with such speed. "Oh," you say, "Where have the years gone?" You think every second is so important. You worry, you fret, you wander empty roads and I watch you. I see you with your emphasis on the moment. You are being deceived, My little ones. It is in seeing the moment as part of eternity that you really know what is going on. Each moment you live, you are the teacher about the God Who dwells in your breast. Each moment you live, you are My messenger to this cold, scared world. Nothing you do means anything except as you are serving Me.
Take off your glasses. Behold the life above. See every moment as a drop of the life to come. See every moment as part of eternity. All these drops together make up your pass into My kingdom.
You worry, you wonder, you fret, you hold on. I give you a toothache, I take it away. One second and a toothache is gone. Is that not how it is with life--one second and it is gone? Oh, how those little precious moments seem to die away and you scarce can remember what happened! Yet during people's lives those moments seem earth-shattering. Those moments are yesterday's forgotten memories. You hold on, you fret, you fume and I watch you let go of each moment, only to become forgotten by today.
Store up your moments as part of eternity. Every moment here is part of your pass to My kingdom. How are you living this moment? Is it used to give service to Me and preach My gospel? Are you making all your moments count towards your eternity? Each moment is but a breath and it is gone. Did you use the moment I gave you to do My work? This time is not yours. I can snatch your moments away in one breath. It matters, My children, only as you choose to serve Me and spread My love!
If everyone had God as their primary goal, what love you would possess. What power you would know, because God is the mightiest force. I have all the power. Other power is false power!
Do you get it yet? Do you think anything you hold on to is so precious here? Here today, gone tomorrow, and I snatch you from your seats and you never return to finish what you deemed so important.
Are you comprehending My words here? The body is but an instrument to get you around. Reach with the spirit within. Live from the soul. Communicate with Me in your soul. Look for the unseen world that surrounds you constantly. Die to yourself.
You have a soul at this very moment that is a vibrant spiritual force alive within you. Live from your soul, My little ones. Focus on your soul. Live from your heart. Do not fret and fume for the things of this world. Here today, gone tomorrow, and then forgotten. Today's moments, yesterday's forgotten treasures. Do they mean so much or do you forget what seemed so important?
Reach with the soul. Live for God. Each moment is your chance to store up treasures for eternity. They will never be forgotten. What you do to help others to know Me will never be forgotten. How you loved will never be forgotten. How you gave lives on in those you touched. Your love is like a bubbling brook. It bubbles and keeps on bubbling. Your selfishness dies the moment after you live it.
Love is the force. Love is the power that reflects the God above. Love is not selfish. Love does not demand its own way. Love gives and doesn't stop giving. On the day of judgment it will be found in the hearts of those you touched. Think of only yourself and watch your moments become yesterday's forgotten moments. Love your brothers and watch the world reflect the love you gave, from now to the end.
Love or selfishness? I call you to love. I call you to plant a seed that grows into a mighty oak. Plant My seeds of love. Ask not how you can attain your goal but how you can fulfill the goal of God. Love God, love one another. Too simple, too hard for many.
Love, children. Reflect the God Who dwells within your soul. Store up your moments forever lest they become yesterday's forgotten treasure.
Like ripples on a pond, your love never dies. It reaches on and on and goes into the moments of eternity. Love is lasting. Love never dies. Love God, love one another. Die to yourself and live.
Jesus speaks: Married couples:
Oh, I love for you, My married couples, to pray together and to unite your days in the Morning Offering.
Please write to each other and to Me every day.
(Please copy and pass out to family and friends.)
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.
(End of Mary's Message)
MY VALENTINE FOR JESUS AND MARY
AND THE WORLD
I _________________ give my heart to
You Jesus and Mary on this day
I promise to help spread the devotion to
the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
Q: How do I feel we can start our day in prayer together?
(This may be only a short prayer of offering in the morning or more prayers and Mass, you must see what is God's will for you.)
