Processing/dealing with our emotions by feeling them and learning from them is an important part of embracing the abundant life God has in store for us.
“All things work together for the good for those who love Him.”
*Pick a prayer below. Repeat it each time you do another guide until it’s memorized, then move to the next one.
*God wants YOU (especially children) to help save sinners by praying this prayer every day! In the spring of 1916, God sent the Angel of Peace from Heaven to Fatima, Portugal to teach this powerful prayer to the whole world through 3 children – Lucia age 9, Francisco age 7, and Jacinta 6. This prayer repairs damage caused by people’s sins, draws them back to God, and brings peace to the world! God wants YOU to take part in His work to save sinners. He made it so simple that everyone everywhere can pray this prayer frequently! In Heaven, you’ll see how many people you helped save!
*God wants YOU (especially children) to pray this 2nd prayer to help save sinners! In August of 1916, God again sent the Angel of Peace from Heaven to Fatima, Portugal to teach this 2nd prayer to the world through Lucia – now 10, Francisco – now 8, and Jacinta – still 6. This prayer also repairs the damage caused by people’s sins and helps convert poor sinners! God really wants children and adults to join Him in saving others through this prayer.
On July 6, 1973, Our Lady appeared in Akita, Japan and asked that the expression ‘truly present’ be used to emphasize that Jesus is really and truly present in the Eucharist!
*Why memorize & pray this prayer? The more our love for God grows, the happier we will be on earth and in Heaven! Loving God with all our heart is the first and greatest commandment. -Deut 6:5
When you notice your emotions, take a moment to feel them. Then, make an act of trust in God by saying: “Father, You gave these emotions to me for a reason. Help me to feel them and understand what You are teaching me through them.”
