Prayer for Miracles
"What you reap... you will sow.  If your heart is of goodwill and your love of God is unconditional... you will see the Glory of God, the Glory of His Promises and the Magnificence of His Deeds done through your life and answered through your prayers."

Prayers to Christ for Miracles
 

God hears and answers all of our prayers.  The answer you receive, may not be the answer you want.  However, you must always remember that God loves you with all of his heart. You are his child, his beloved and his decision to grant or not to grant your wish simply comes out of his love for you.

You may not understand why your prayer seems to have gone unanswered, you may not understand why the painful cross or burden you are carrying was not lifted off your shoulder.  You may not understand why such a precious wife, husband, child or friend is suffering... or has been taken from you...

But someday you will....

Consider the Child who asks a parent for different things throughout their lives.  Sometimes the parent will grant the child their wishes and sometimes they will not.  The parent always has the best intentions and love in mind for the child, yet the child very often feels angry they have been denied that which they seek.  But the parent knows best.

  There is nothing more worthwhile than to pray to God and to converse with him, for prayer unites us with God as his companions. As our bodily eyes are illuminated by seeing the light, so in contemplating God our soul is illuminated by him." St John Chrysostom

First remember this.... God created everything, God can have anything -- God Can Give You anything and likewise he can take anything he desires from you -- he is all powerful - he is Almighty - and the impossible can be done in his name.  Yet, because he wanted it as so, there is only one thing that you have that you have power over that he does not, There is only one thing that you can offer God that he can not get on his own.

Your Love for Him.

There is no magical prayer for a Miracle, there only exists a private conversation with God.  God will perform miracles, but you must ask and Trust in him and his will.

If you feel you are unworthy to Pray or don't know how to pray - but still need help or need to be heard - you can do the following.

  1. Ask for Christ's help
  2. Ask for the Intercession of Mary - the Mother of God
  3. Ask for the intercession of the Saints
  4. Ask for the Intercession of others to pray for your cause
  5. Pray Yourself

Pray Yourself - if You are truly ready... Let's Begin

  1. Quiet Your Mind - Find a peaceful spot inside or outside. You want to find a location where you wont be distracted and can give GOD your full attention.
     
  2. Take 13 deep breathes - close your eyes.
     
  3. Make the sign of the cross
    Say In the name of the father, the Son and the Holy Spirit

     
  4. Say the words that Christ himself gave us in teaching us how to pray... 
    Our Father, Who art in heaven 
    Hallowed be Thy Name;
    Thy kingdom come,
    Thy will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us this day our daily bread,
    and forgive us our sins
    as we forgive those who sin against us;
    and lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from evil.

     
  5. Apologize First for any wrong you have done in the past - be sincere.
    O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my sins, because I dread the loss of heaven, and the pains of hell; but most of all because they offend Thee, my God, Who are all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace, to confess my sins, to do penance, and to amend my life. 
     
  6. You are now at a Glorious Moment...  
    • You have gained the attention of the great God Almighty himself, your father, your creator... the only thing which is real, right now, at this very moment, the only thing that exists is -- you and him -- together. 
    • Now talk to him... talk to him as if you are a child... for you still are.  In the measure of eternity, your time on earth is but just a passing moment.  In the Eyes of God, you are a mere minute older than when he first breathed life into you.  You are still his beloved child.. his creation.... a part of him.
    • Ask him for your miracle!
    • Listen - Listen to his answer.  Every Prayer is answered - sometimes just not in the way you expect.
    • Discern
    • Thank him for hearing your prayers
    • Accept his will - his decision
    • Tell him that you love him
    • Live Your Life Every Day as a good person
    • Help everyone - Harm no one - be beholden only to God and no Man. Be like Christ.
   

Five things to contemplate and act on.

1. Prayer. It's just common sense that you're not likely to get something unless you ask for it. Jesus told his disciples to pray night and day and not to give up. He also told us to have the elders of the church pray for us.

  • James 5:14-15
    Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15) And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven.
  • Luke 18:1-7
    1) Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. 2) He said: "In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared about men. 3) And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, `Grant me justice against my adversary.' 4) "For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, `Even though I don't fear God or care about men, 5) yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won't eventually wear me out with her coming!'" 6) And the Lord said, "Listen to what the unjust judge says. 7) And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off?
  • James 5:16
    Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.
  • Matthew 18:19-20
    "Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. 20) For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them."

2. Faith. While a great amount of faith is not required for God to heal, it certainly can't hurt. Jesus was unable to do miracles in his hometown because of the lack of faith but he was still able to heal sick people! With faith Jesus tells us that "Nothing will be impossible for you".

  • Mark 6: 1-6
    1) Jesus left there and went to his hometown, accompanied by his disciples 2) When the Sabbath came, he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were amazed. "Where did this man get these things?" they asked. "What's this wisdom that has been given him, that he even does miracles! 3) Isn't this the carpenter? Isn't this Mary's son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon? Aren't his sisters here with us?" And they took offense at him. 4 ) Jesus said to them, "Only in his hometown, among his relatives and in his own house is a prophet without honor." 5) He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them. 6) And he was amazed at their lack of faith. Then Jesus went around teaching from village to village.
  • Matthew 17:19
    when he said "I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, `Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."

3. Love & Forgiveness. There is no question that God wants us to Love and Forgive each other. Love is God's command. Love is healing.

  • John 15:12-14
    My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 13) Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. 14) You are my friends if you do what I command.
  • Hebrews 13:1-2
    Keep on loving each other as brothers. 2) Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.
  • Isaiah 58:7-8
    Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter-- when you see the naked, to clothe him, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? 8) Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard
  • 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5) It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6) Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7) It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
  • Mark 11:23-25
    "I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, `Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. 24) Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. 25) And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.
  • Proverbs 15:30
    A cheerful look brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones.
  • Proverbs 12:18
    Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
  • Proverbs 16:24
    Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones

4. God's Protection. There are forces of evil that you may need protection from. Ask God for protection

  • Ephesians 6:11-13
    11) Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. 12) For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13) Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

5. Good Medical Care. God works his miracles in many ways and through many people. Today's medical community has a lot to offer and with God's grace can save your life

  • Luke 5:31
    31) Jesus answered them, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick.
