Praying to win day in,day out. Start your prayers today, after all according to Pope Saint John Paul II,” The future, starts today, not tomorrow.” This means we should get on with our plans now. We cannot afford to spend most of our days planning for the things we shall start tomorrow. Let us remember that today, was tomorrow, yesterday.In order to win the battles that are part of our daily lives, we have to consistently pray through the moments that make up our daily lives. Don’t for tomorrow, start now!
Try to ask God to help you throughout the day. You have to start with your thoughts. If you do not guard your thoughts, it may end up misleading. Of course, you cannot always determine or control what spontaneous though s will come to your mind, but you can pray to God to help modify them, remove them or where appropriate act on them.Remember that your thoughts can influence your emotions and behavior.
Even if you are going through times do not despair. Pope Saint John Paul II , said,w “Do not abandon yourselves to despair.We are the Easter people and Hallelujah is our song.” This means we have to uplift ourselves everyday through prayers instead of our negative thoughts or daily annoyances or problems to dominate our lives.
According to Pope Saint John XXIII, “Consult not your fears but your hopes and dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential.Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in , but with what is still possible for you to do.” While it is possible for you for us to learn from our mistakes, we look on to future knowing that with God nothing is impossible for us to do.
Unless we learn to pray to win throughout the activities that make up our days, we find ourselves focusing too much on our failures and our inadequacies. Don’t try to reason with the devil, he is too smart for you. Instead present to God, your thoughts, your fears and your hopes nd ask Him to bless you and give the fortitude to try to do the will of God.
According to Blessed Pope John Paul II who by the grace of God shall be Saint Pope John Paul II on April 27th 2014, “True holiness does not mean a flight from the world; rather, it lies in the effort to incarnate the Gospel in everyday life, in the family, at school and at work, and in social and political involvement.” Praying everyday will help us win the battles that make up our daily life.
We all know that everyday, we try to be happy from the time we wake p to the time we fall asleep. The challenges to our daily life could come from our thoughts, our emotions and our actions. Our emotions can be influenced by what our friends say to us, they could be influenced by how our family members speak to us.What should we do ? Should we complain and give up? No. according to Pope John Paul II we should,” incarnate the Gospel into our everyday life” How can we do not pray to win everyday?
Remember that while it is true that our thoughts influence our emotions, which influence our behavior, prayers can influence all three at the same time. By praying to God, who will help us change our thoughts , so that we can end up changing our behavior and how we deal with the moments and the circumstances that make up our days.
We can begin this process by telling God everything about us. As soon as we accept that without God, we cannot do anything, then we shall see how everything we do or try to do, in our lives from the moments we wake up will depend on our living in the presence of God.May God continue to bless us as we try to incarnate or immerse the word of God, into our jobs, work,studies,projects, relationships,and our weaknesses.
I hope you had a great Easter day. Did you go to mass? Do you remember the sermon? If you did not, do not feel too dejected. You may not be alone. One way to help you remember the sermon is to read the bible readings for mass, the day before mass. This means you read your missal or bible readings on the Saturday before the mass on Sunday.
Why is this important? This is important because the more you are familiar with the word of God, the more you can pray to win everyday! Unless we continue praying to win through the moments and circumstances that make up our day, the devil will continue to take advantage of us.
We have to pray to win everyday because we need the help of God to overcome the evil one, who is always trying to trick or confuse us. Besides, we need the spiritual energy to move from one challenge to another as we accomplish the tasks that make up the days of our lives. Not praying everyday, can be compared to trying to drive your car without gas.It can also be compared to driving from destination A to destination B , without a map or GPS.
The problem with driving without a map or without directions is that you may end not getting to your destination.When try to get through your day without praying, you too might end up not accomplishing all your plans for the day. If you do not have enough time to say all your prayers start with simple prayers today!
