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.



        Pray for 4 very urgent intentions.

        Pray for 1 personal intention.

        Pray for a particular bishop and cardinal.

        Pray for the pope.

        Pray for all the bishops of the world.

Jesus speaks:     I can allow you to experience sufferings
                                of tremendous proportions.

                            I was rejected by those whom I loved
                                so deeply.

                            My daughter you must do My will
                                in all things.

Messenger:        My Beloved I see how in a desire to
                                give or receive certain love
                                I may have given more or
                                less than I should.

Jesus speaks:     This is your measuring stick to help you

                                to do God's will, do not do more of

                                one thing that I ask of you,

                                do not do less.

                            Seriously, tell all your people to

                                pray the Holy Spirit Novena daily.

                            I give you from My bounty.

Messenger:        My spiritual director told me, I

                                must focus on my spousal relationship

                                with Jesus.

                            We can be tested.

                            Others can come and put demands on us.

                            Our health can be an issue.

                            Our time alone with Jesus, one hour

                                daily is so important.

                            We may want to rescue others or help

                                them so much we leave them

                                weak themselves.

                            Jesus is our strength.
                           God is our refuge and our strength.

                            Jesus is our model, the world

                                today focuses on men as our

                                models—the men should

                                all model themselves after

                                Jesus first.

                            Jesus and Mary are our models.

                            Jesus is a Divine Person.

                            Men make mistakes.

                            Human persons are imperfect.

                            Mary is the only human person

                                conceived without sin.
