I have been praying more and more after asking Saint Paul to intercede for me and help me ‘pray unceasingly.’ I am a stay at home mother, so the ability to pray and work is important. The Lord is on my mind more and more and I also get inspirations from the Holy Spirit to pray for causes and people. I love doing His work this way. It is a wonderful grace and I thank God for it. I desire to keep going deeper.
I have recently turned my attention on little Alfie Evans and his family. I asked for the grace to pray all night and when I was sleeping I was able to do so (at least I was aware of it at times in the night—Hail Marys are what I prayed). The more I pray for the little one Alfie, the more I love him. (I am consecrated to the Blessed Mother via St Louis de Montfort method)
Anyway, I am praying for his healing and transfer to a hospital in Italy that wants him to live. I want to be confident that my prayer will be granted, but I also don’t want to presume I know the outcome.
How does one balance this? Blessed Solanus Casey said that ‘confidence is the soul of prayer.’ I believe God is good, that He hears my prayers, that He loves me and those I pray for. Is there more? Can I be confident that Alfie will live and go to Italy?
Imaculee said she prayed and envisioned her deliverance from hiding. She prayed and envisioned her working for the UN.
Jesus told us to have enough faith to move mountains.
Someone help me please.
