It would be a phone call. I would call someone living in the United States and we would do this together. . I love this Novena so much and it is always better to pray with another person to help remove the knots in our lives that need undid for healing.
Hi Gigglin4God! I have read your post about the Mary Undoer of Knots novena. I think your idea of having people pray it with you is interesting. How does it go, does one have to recite the prayers with you real time, or it's more like praying together with someone for the same intention? Thanks and God bless!
She has been refusing my phone calls. I've called and have left alot of messages and she isn't returning my calls. I haven't been able to get in touch with her. This is been going on for at least 2 or 3 years maybe. Sorry I don't have an answer but she has made her choice.
Thank you for the words of encouragement. One thing that I've neve been taught as a child is how to forgive others as well as myself. I read a really good book last week called"The Devil In Pew Number Seven." It showed how a girl of 5 years old and her brother who was 3 year old could now as adults could forgive the man responsible for terroistic threats, phone calls, letters, shootings and bombs going off as the man wanted her parents to leave the town they.were living as the preacher. A note is found saying to them that they are going to leave that town, walking our crawling dead or alive. It is a true story that took place in Sellerstown, North Carolina. I wish I could be like them, living and forgiving the men who who made their life a living hell. Great book!
Whenever you are suffering, in any way at all, simply turn to our Lord in prayer. Ask Him to bless this suffering that it may take away the suffering of someone else. The 'someone else' could be somebody in purgatory, a child in the womb or his/her mother, a close friend, or anyone in the universe needing help.
If you do this your suffering can even be the price of souls. You will change your suffering into a source of consolation or salvation for a complete stranger. We should consider ourselves blessed whenever our God allows us to suffer. As strange as it may seem, suffering is also a gift from God.
I know that this is a very hard thing to do. It goes against how we feel. We need to use an entire lifetime to learn to suffer well.
God is always with you Georgia! And with today's technology many strangers are with you too.
I just popped in to say hello and to remind you that we are still praying hard for your situation. You have many saints in heaven also praying for you.
Please do not forget to unite your sufferings with the suffering of our Lord on the cross. Georgia, your suffering here on earth can help save souls! Please offer you troubles up as a sacrifice for those who refuse to acknowledge the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
Thank you Reg. I had a good day despite one of my brothers getting all down on me. He thinks I should be able to suck it up. He doesn't understand it is something I can't just quit my meds and go on an herbal way to treat my depression and anxiety. It don't come easy. He is lucky that he doesnt have mental issues. Thank you for your prayers and continued prayers. God Bless you for being a faithful friend on here .
This may sound odd, but I pray that you will be able to rejoice in your suffering. Please do not suffer alone. Join your suffering with the suffering of our Lord. Your suffering can help in God's work of saving souls.
Thank-you so much for being part of our 'family' here on CAF.
