Without beating around the bush, as the title suggests (please bear with me) here they are :
Recently, I started praying for my friend and her partner(the “partner” has been paying off the debts of a loan that his parents borrowed years ago). And ever since I started the prayers on their behalf, i’ve been having such bad dreams that I wake up getting angry with myself and, oh well, with God. I thought I had gotten rid of these. I had!!! And there now, it’s all over me again. Could it be because um…the people I’m praying for aren’t Christians? Oh, what a silly,silly,silly question, isn’t it? But then, there are many other non Christian friends (with whom I’ve been long separated from) that I pray for.
Also, recently, I brought a brown scapular that has yet to be blessed and enrolled by a priest. I’ve just placed it on my own “altar” alongside the rosary in my room, after reciting prayers for it. I intend to visit a priest a little bit later (there are reasons why I’m not doing it now). I shouldn’t have brought it now but I just couldn’t help thinking about it.
So, alternately, could it be due to this (the second point) that I’m having troubles in my sleep? My life, right at the moment isn’t a bed of roses, and as if it could get any better or worse, these bad dreams are adding woes, because for as long as I remember, dreams have always “come true”. I mean, if bad dreams occur, something bad does happen in the real life as well. Likewise with the good ones. Right before all these " mishaps" I saw the Father and the Son together and I was following them. Ah, well. I’m mightily shaken why all these are happening to me.
Sorry, for this very monotonous and long question. I’d appreciate your time taken here, and also thanks to everyone who’s kept me in their prayers.
