PRAYER FOR THE FEAST OF SAINT URSULA AND COMPANION, VIRGIN MARTYRS

O God, Who hast granted to the virgins
worthily consecrated to Thee,
the courage to face,
with Ursula as their leader,
a wonderful fight whereby through the palm of martyrdom
they reached the glory of Heavenly contemplation,
we beseech Thee
grant that we may be aided by the prayer
of those who in this day after passing through the gates of death,
Thou has made to triumph in Heaven.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ,
Who liveth and reigneth with God the Father,
in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God,
world without end.

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
