These are the 9 elements of personal prayers.  

 

CCCc 550. What are the essential forms of Christian prayer? (CCC. 2643-2644)

They are blessing and adoration, the prayer of petition and intercession, thanksgiving and praise.
The Eucharist contains and expresses all the forms of prayer.

 

551. What is “blessing”? CCC. 2626-2627, 2645

The prayer of blessing is man’s response to God’s gifts: we bless the Almighty who first blesses us and fills us with his gifts.

552. How can adoration be defined? CCC. 2628

Adoration is the humble acknowledgement by human beings that they are creatures of the thrice-Holy Creator.

553. What are the different forms of the prayer of petition? CCC. 2629-2633, 2646

It can be a petition for pardon or also a humble and trusting petition for all our needs either spiritual or material. The first thing to ask for, however, is the coming of the Kingdom.

554. In what does the prayer of intercession consist? CCC. 2634-2636, 2647

Intercession consists in asking on behalf of another. It conforms us and unites us to the prayer of Jesus who intercedes with the Father for all, especially sinners. Intercession must extend even to one’s enemies.

555. When is thanksgiving given to God? CCC. 2637-2638, 2648

The Church gives thanks to God unceasingly, above all in celebrating the Eucharist in which Christ allows her to participate in his own thanksgiving to the Father. For the Christian every event becomes a reason for giving thanks.

556. What is the prayer of praise? CCC. 2639-2643, 2649

Praise is that form of prayer which recognizes most immediately that God is God. It is a completely disinterested prayer: it sings God’s praise for his own sake and gives him glory simply because he is.

557. How can vocal prayer be described? CCC. 2700-2704, 2722

Vocal prayer associates the body with the interior prayer of the heart. Even the most interior prayer, however, cannot dispense with vocal prayer. In any case it must always spring from a personal faith. With the Our Father Jesus has taught us a perfect form of vocal prayer.

558. What is meditation? CCC. 2705-2708, 2723

Meditation is a prayerful reflection that begins above all in the Word of God in the Bible. Meditation engages thought, imagination, emotion and desire in order to deepen our faith, convert our heart and fortify our will to follow Christ. It is a first step toward the union of love with our Lord.

559. What is contemplative prayer? CCC. 2709-2719, 2724, 2739-2741

Contemplative prayer is a simple gaze upon God in silence and love. It is a gift of God, a moment of pure faith during which the one praying seeks Christ, surrenders himself to the loving will of the Father, and places his being under the action of the Holy Spirit. Saint Teresa of Avila defines contemplative prayer as the intimate sharing of friendship, “in which time is frequently taken to be alone with God who we know loves us.”

HOME WORK

Home Work 1

How to love God? If you love God all things will be turned in your favour (Rom. 8:28).

  1. Keep the commandments – “All those who love God; must keep all the commandments of God (1 Jn. 5:3). Jesus said “If you love me you will keep all my commandments” (Jn. 14:15).

  2. Love your enemies for 1Jn. 4:20 states that those who say, “I love God,” and hate their brothers or sisters, are liars; for those who do not love a brother or sister whom they see, cannot love God whom they have not seen and verse 21 adds that “the commandment we have from him is this: those who love God must love their brothers and sisters also.”

  3. Love the Church (Acts. 9:4). Do not persecute the Church but love and foster the infrastructure of the Church. Without loving the Church nobody can love God.
    1:24 says that the Church is the body of Christ (CCC 1264). All those who believe in Jesus; form the body of Christ. Therefore, one must love all Christian Denominations. Some of the Christian denominations may have full communion and others have only partial communion with the mother Church. But consider all those who believe in Christ as brothers and sisters (CCCc 163).

  4. Take time out in prayer – Prayer is a relationship with God (CCCc 534).
    Prayer is a conscious, constant, conversation with God that will result in an intimate relationship with the Almighty. To establish this relationship and grow in this relationship please do the daily prayers and do the Homework very sincerely from Pages 97-108 of the Logos prayer book named “Infilling, healing and deliverance.”

These 4 methods will solve all problems in ones’ life.    One has to do only these 4 things to receive these 8 blessings, 8 authorities and 8 grades of relationships.

  1. Hear the Word of God and read the Word of God (1 Cor. 1.21) and be the doers of the Word of God. Therefore please listen carefully to the proclamation of the Word of God as long as your problem persists.

  2. Receive pastor’s prayer (Gen. 20:17). Holy Mass is a general prayer for everybody by the pastors in the Church. So attend the Holy Mass daily if possible until your crucial problem is over.

  3. Take Medicine (Sir. 38:1-14).  And the application of available scientific methods is also needed to solve certain problems and to get healing in certain diseases.

  4. Get anointed by the power of the Holy Spirit (1 Jn. 2:27) through the daily prayers and homework as given in the Logos Prayer Book (PP 97-108). You may download this book from frjosevettiyankal.org .

These four methods will help us to grow in our spiritual life, to solve all problems and also prevent almost all problems in future.   

Three Categories of People may not be healed or relieved immediately.

  1. For those people whose time of death has come; which is predestined by God even before birth or before doing something good or bad (Ps. 139:16). Such people might not be healed. For them the sickness is only a preparation for their death and eternal life.

  2. Holy Souls who have wonderful charisms, revelations and great joy in it and are called to challenge the devil and defeat the evil (2 Cor. 12:9) may not be healed. For ex. St. Little Theresa of Child Jesus, St. Alphonsa of Kerala, etc.

  3. Those who are in need of increasing of their faith and who have a special call to receive powerful charisms in order to have a special ministry in the Church (1Pt. 4: 12–14). For ex. The man with the epileptic son prayed, “Lord increase my faith. And help my poor faith” (Mk. 9:24). Just after that prayer, his son was healed because Jesus increased his faith as he asked for.

These people have supernatural healings but natural healings do not take place in their lives. But the number of these three categories may be less than 1% of the total population.

All your actions should be guided by 5 Principles – such acts can then be called as acts of repentance (Mk.1:15).

  1. They should be for the Glory of God – 1Cor. 10:31.

  2. They should be for the salvation of souls and bodies of others – Mt. 18:6.

  3. They should be for self-sanctification – Mt. 16:26.

  4. They should be in line with the words of Jesus and the Bible – Mt. 22:29.

  5. They should adhere to the magisterial teachings – 1Thes. 2:13 (you have received our words as not our words, but as the Word of God).

If all these principles are the basis of an action, then that action can be considered as the right action. Therefore you can evaluate all your actions whether right or wrong on the lines of these five principles

Home Work 4

There are more than 10 Sources of Healings and Blessings in the Catholic Church. Therefore please make use of these 10 sources frequently.

  1. God – Ex. 15:26 – I am the God who heals you. Medicine might fail but God never fails – One woman who had been suffering for 12 years of bleeding, though she spent all her money, did not receive any healing but Jesus healed her (Lk. 8:43-44).

  2. The Word of God heals all diseases – Ps. 107:20.

  3. Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament heals the sick (CCC. 1509).“Heal the sick … the Church has received this charge from the Lord and strives to carry it out by taking care of the sick as well as by accompanying them with her prayer of intercession. She believes in the life-giving presence of Christ, the physician of souls and bodies. This presence is particularly active through the sacraments, and in an altogether special way through the Eucharist, the bread that gives eternal life and that St. Paul suggests is connected with bodily health”.

  4. Some persons function as Healers (CCC 1508). “The Holy Spirit gives to some a special charism of healing,  so as to make manifest the power of the grace of the risen Lord. But even the most intense prayers do not always obtain the healing of all illnesses. Thus St. Paul must have learnt from the Lord that “my grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness,” and that the sufferings endured could mean that “in my flesh I complete what is lacking in Christ’s afflictions for the sake of his Body, that is, the Church.”

  5. Saints, Relics and blessed objects have the power to heal the sick (LG. 11). Novena prayers and intercession to saints also have the power to heal the sick.

  6. The intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary especially in Velankanni, Lourdes and other Marian centers around the world are sources of healing. The Marian Rosary also heals many.

  7. Pilgrim centers and certain other selective places also share the healing power of God  (e.g. Jn. 5- Pool at Bethesda etc).

  8. Medicine, Doctors, surgery etc too heal (Sir. 38: 1-14).

  9. Our prayers and acts of faith have the power to heal our diseases. “Jesus prayed over him and applied saliva, water and mud to heal the sick and asked him to go wash.” The blind man was healed after doing all these acts (Mk. 8:22-24).

  10. All 7 Sacraments especially the Confession and Eucharist have the power to heal almost all diseases. CCCc. 295 says   that confession and last sacraments are sacraments of healings.

  2. 18:19-23- says no there is no Ancestral Curse

19 Yet you say, “Why should not the son suffer for the iniquity of the father?” When the son has done what is lawful and right, and has been careful to observe all my statutes, he shall surely live.
20 The person who sins shall die. A child shall not suffer for the iniquity of a parent, nor a parent suffer for the iniquity of a child; the righteousness of the righteous shall be his own, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be his own.
