Yesterday, I started my 21-day prayer challenge. I started at Washington & Flamingo, went North to Pines Blvd and then headed East to Hiatus and then circled back to Flamingo. It took me a little over an hour. I prayed for something very specific for my business, something that I thought was an impossible combination. I needed a VA, who has a background in photography & video. It turns out that I met her 3 weeks ago! God gave me what I needed before I even asked.

My Grandmother had a worry box...she would open this pretty liltte tin every night and caress the velvet lining. Then she would explain to any inquisitive child standing nearby that it was where she placed her worries of the day so that God could handle it. This brought back a memory so vivid that I had to share it with you...thanks for the memory!hugsSandi

This is so true, but hard to do! It helps me if I don't watch the news or look at the tv websites. I used to have WRAL as my home page. Had to stop. I saw too many bad tgihns. This way I don't know about it! LOL

Dear Marie,My heart goes out to all you women and men who have been abused phys­i­cally or sex­u­ally. It is a ter­ri­ble vio­la­tion of trust and respect for the dig­nity of the human per­son. It is a sin that cries out to heaven for jus­tice and is cer­tainly often influ­enced by demonic influ­ences which always try to dehu­man­ize us.The good news is there is hope for heal­ing and strength­en­ing. Spir­i­tu­ally there are two main types of prayers that can help immensly in such cases. One is to offer up a Mass (or series of Masses) for our ances­tors who are in Pur­ga­tory and who have passed on to us the affects of thier sin­full lifestyles. The Sacred Scrip­tures tell us that we are not morally cul­pa­ble for the sins of our ances­tors (Ezekiel 18) but that we sure do suf­fer the con­se­quences of thier sin­full­ness (Ex 20:5). We can have ten­den­cies to depres­sion, sui­cide, addic­tions, poor self-confidence, indif­fer­ence, anger issues, etc. One of the worst affects of par­ents with scan­de­lously sin­full behav­ior is that it is dif­fi­cult to deve­l­ope a trust­ing, affec­tive rela­tion­ship with God. What one does to pre­pare for a Mass for the fam­ily is to make a fam­ily tree includ­ing par­ents, grand­par­ents and great grand­par­ents. One can also include aunts and uncles as well. On the paper with the tree one also puts sig­nif­i­cant behav­iors or events that could affect me (such as divorces, infi­delity, per­verse behav­ior, involve­ment in cults, new age, athe­ism, curs­ing, vio­lence, abor­tions, witch­craft, being orphaned or aban­doned, unloved, lone­li­ness, etc). Dur­ing the Mass we put them all on the altar (When I con­duct these Masses I put the sheets of the fam­ily trees on the altar) and plead that pre­cious blood of the sac­ri­fice of Jesus over them all grant­ing them mercy and also pray­ing for all the other peo­ple who have been hurt by them that they too find heal­ing and the lov­ing pres­ence of God in thier lives. We also give thanks for thier lives becouse in the end God used them to bring us into exhis­tence, He loves them too, and we have also inher­ited good aspects from them as well (could be intel­li­gence, or skill in a craft or music, etc) It is a prayer of sol­i­dar­ity where we pray that our whole fam­ily will be blessed by God´s mer­ci­full heal­ing and free­ing love through Jesus. The sec­ond type of pow­er­full prayer that I would rec­om­mend is the heal­ing of mem­o­ries. In this prayer one asks God

, “If you want to know how you are doing in your spir­i­tual growth, ask your­self two ques­tions. ¿How am I han­dling fear and how am I han­dling anger?” With anger I have learned a few impor­tant details (among oth­ers).. The great­est spir­i­tual gifts for han­dling anger are self-control and under­stand­ing. We need self-control in order to not react from our first impulse which will usu­ally injure the other per­son with an awful look or com­ment which would degrade, embarace or hurt the other per­son mak­ing the sit­u­a­tion worse. Under­stand­ing is nece­sarry to process the feal­ing of anger. The way to process anger is to, first, admit to our­selves that we feel anger; then ask our­selves, “Why am I angry? What exactly is the issue at hand?” Finally, let the rea­son work to try to under­stand the other per­son or the sit­u­a­tion which is mak­ing you angry. Feel­ings need to be processed by the mind so that a rea­son­able action can be taken. This is often the great prob­lem in our lives in over­com­ming prob­lems in fam­ily life. Some­body makes a harsh com­ment and the other (or oth­ers) begin to add in to the neg­a­tiv­ity and argu­ments and fights often result and the real issue is lost in the bat­tle. This is usu­ally the prod­uct of inte­rior wounds from the past that have not been healed. We should ask God for the gift of under­stand­ing. Get­ting out of our­selves and try­ing to under­stand why the other per­son would make such a com­ment often dif­fuses (gets rid of) the impulse we have to respond with aggres­sion. Also to under­stand why we our­selves respond with aggres­sion over lit­tle issues. The sec­ond issue is fear which has been called the mind-killer. It is called a mind-killer because it often par­a­lyzes our mind from its capac­ity to respond to a threat­en­ing sit­u­a­tion. It is good to rec­og­nize that we are often fear­full so that we can pray for courage to face the sit­u­a­tion at hand and not over-react or under-react. When we start feel­ing fear, many panic and thereby loose con­tact with rea­son and make unfor­tu­nate deci­sions in what to do or not to do. We need to pray for courage so that we can have enough peace to think clearly and then act upon the deci­sion we make while think­ing clearly.Finally, for­give­ness. When there is much anger and fear there is often a lack of for­giv­ing
