Our Lady Of Lourdes # 4

O ever Immaculate Virgin,
Mother of Mercy,
Health of the Sick,
Refuge of Sinners,
Comfortress of the Afflicted,
You know my wants, my troubles, my sufferings;
Deign to cast upon me a look of Mercy

By appearing in the grotto of Lourdes
You were pleased to make it
A privileged sanctuary
From where you dispense your favors,
And where many sufferers have obtained
The cure of their infirmities,
Both spiritual and corporal

I come, therefore,
With unbounded confidence
To implore your maternal intercession
Obtain, O loving Mother, my requests
I will endeavor to imitate your virtues,
That I may one day share your glory
And bless you in eternity.

Amen.

What is prayer?

Prayer is the lifting up of our minds and hearts to God.

Let us lift up our hearts with our hands to the Lord in the heavens. (Lamentations 3:41)

How do we know that God always hears our prayers if we pray properly?

We know that God always hears our prayers if we pray properly because Our Lord has promised: “If you ask the Father anything in My name, He will give it to you.”

And whatever you ask in my name, that I will do, in order that the Father may be glorified in the Son. (John 14:13)

Why do we not always obtain what we pray for?

We do not always obtain what we pray for, either because we have not prayed properly or because God sees that what we are asking would not be for our good.

You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it upon your passions. (James 4:3)

Prayer from the Baltimore Catechism
