Our Lord’s Virgin And Mother

We turn in all our needs to Christ’s blessed Mother, Mary,
because we know that our Lord,
as her obedient and loving Son,
can refuse her nothing.
Hence, we turn with confidence to our blessed Lady
as “comforter of the afflicted,”
“the help of Christians,”
“health of the sick,”
and “Virgin most powerful.”

Our Virgin Mother still stands by us
as she stood faithfully by the foot of the Cross,
and as she remained praying with His apostles and disciples.
So, too, will she be close to us
when we turn to her in our necessities.

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
