Our Lady Of Perpetual Help # 1

Mother of Perpetual Help,
To Thee we come imploring help.
Behold us here from far and near,
To ask of Thee our help to be.

Perpetual Help we beg Thee;
Our souls from sin and sorrow free;
Direct our wand’ring feet a – right,
And be Thy self our own true light.

And when this life is o’er for me,
This last request I ask of Thee;
Obtain for me in Heaven this grace,
To see my God there face to face.

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
