A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb, the Bridegroom of the Soul

Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.

Messenger: On June 8, 1995, I received the Morning Offering for the Shepherds of Christ Movement which I include here.

The following Imprimatur applies only to the prayer below and not to the messages above or below.

Morning Offering (for Shepherds of Christ Members)

My dear Father, I offer You this day all my prayers, works, joys and sufferings, my every breath, my every heartbeat, my every thought, all my actions, in union with Jesus in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world, in the Holy Spirit. I pray the Holy Spirit is with me every second today, enlightening me to do the will of the Father and filling me with the fire of God's love.

I ask Jesus and Mary to be one in me in all that I do and I unite with all the angels and saints and souls in purgatory to pray continually to the Father for these intercessions, in this prayer, for this day.

For myself, I pray for grace-abundant grace, to know and love God more and more and to follow the will of the Father. I pray to the Holy Spirit to transform me in the heart of Mary to be more and more like Jesus. I pray that I can forever dwell in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. I pray for conversion of all those I hold dear who need conversion. I pray for each member of my family that they will be filled with Your abundant grace to grow in their knowledge and love of God.

I pray for all my friends that they will receive abundant grace to carry out the great plan of the Father, that they will grow forever closer to Jesus' Heart through Mary's heart, that we will all be led by the Holy Spirit to do His work, that we will, together, carry out the plan of the Father as He intends us to, to spread the love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Mary's heart to this world.

Jesus, I pray for myself so the Holy Spirit descends upon me and opens my heart to Your love so I will grow more and more deeply in union with You. I pray that I do not worry what other people think but try always to please the Father and do His will. I pray that I may help lead many to Your burning love.

I pray for the following people in particular that they will be filled with the Spirit and grow deeply in their union with You, that they will receive abundant graces to know, love and serve You more. (Include special friends by name...)

I pray for priests the world over, for the success of the Priestly Newsletter, the Chapters and for the finances needed for the Newsletter. I pray for the circulation of the Blue Book messages, rosary meditations and tapes. I pray for all those involved in the publication of these messages.

I pray that You will shower Your abundant graces onto the priests reading the Newsletter the people reading and hearing the Blue Book messages and Rosary Meditations and all of Fr. Carter's publications.

We pray for the intentions we hold deep within our hearts, for our families and friends, for those requesting our prayers. We pray for children the world over and for the souls in purgatory. We ask God to shower His abundant grace on us and the members of our Shepherds of Christ chapter so that we may grow more and more in our knowledge and love of God.

We consecrate ourselves to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. We pray for Father Carter, for Father Smith, for Rita Ring, and for John Weickert, for all leaders and helpers in the Shepherds of Christ Movement, for Shepherds of Christ Ministries, and Our Lady of Light Ministry. We pray for all those who are working in these ministries.

We bind ourselves and our children and our friends to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. We place the precious blood of Jesus on ourselves, and all we touch, so that we will be protected from the evil one. We pray to St. Michael to cast the devil into hell.

We love You, God, we love You, we love You. We beg that we may receive the grace to love You more and more deeply. We adore You, we praise You, our beloved Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Messenger: On June 8, 1995, I had two visions at the Falmouth farm in Kentucky.

I include the visions here exactly as they appear in my notebook.

This excerpt is directly from my notebook as I wrote June 9, 1995, the day after the two visions at Falmouth, Kentucky.

Vision from June 9, 1995

Messenger: The Cathedral of St. Peter in Chains Blessed Sacrament Chapel partially burned on June 8, 1999.

It was there I received the Prayer Before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

It was there I saw the vision of Father Carter with his hand on the church.

Vision of Father Carter with his hand on the church.

It was there I saw St. Margaret Mary appear with a white book.

The Blessed Sacrament was exposed so much in that chapel when I was younger.

We called it the Blessed Sacrament Chapel.

Jesus gave tender love letters in God’s Blue Book to lead the people to Him in adoration before the tabernacle and to Holy Communion. He wants people to stay 20 minutes after Communion to be with Him.

I always wondered what the two visions I received at Falmouth, Kentucky, meant. After the flooding at Falmouth, Kentucky, I thought the vision was linked to this.

One day after Mass at the Cathedral in the afternoon as I was leaving, I noticed the chapel had burned on June 8, 1999, and I remembered the vision I had at Falmouth, Kentucky.

I include parts from the daily messages of March 6, 1999 and June 8, 1999.

The message of June 8, 1999 was put out the same day of the fire at the Cathedral chapel.

excerpt from March 6, 1999 daily message:

Messenger: On June 8, 1995, I went to the Falmouth Farm. I had received the morning offering for the Shepherds of Christ Movement earlier that morning. From the praying of this prayer by many in the Movement, great grace could be released to our Church and our world.

excerpts from June 8, 1999 daily message:

Messenger: On the day June 8, 1995, I had the following vision. I saw a river and the riverbanks on both sides were lined with trees. Slowly the water began to rise in the river and the banks were flooded. And then I saw the water was pouring over the treetops (like a waterfall) into the river. The rough sketch enclosed is from my notebook on June 8, 1995.

Messenger: The vision I see now resembles the flood at Falmouth (a terrible thing) but also it reminds me of something I recently read in Revelation 22:1-2.

Revelation 22:1-2

Then the angel showed me the river of life, rising from the throne of God and of the Lamb and flowing crystal-clear. Down the middle of the city street, on either bank of the river were the trees of life, which bear twelve crops of fruit in a year, one in each month, and the leaves of which are the cure for the nations.

Messenger: Approximately twelve times a year we honor God in a special way on the 13th of the month as requested by Jesus at our Center in China, Indiana.

Jesus calls China His Eucharistic Center. He has promised great grace to those who come and pray there before the Blessed Sacrament.

Messenger: I remember the vision June 8, 1995. I saw the waterway and then the water began to rise and rise and then it was pouring from above the trees.

I thought after Falmouth flooded, that this happened because of His displeasure that His Blue Book messages were not made available at the Falmouth farm.

The Blue Books lead people to Him in the Eucharist. He promises great grace to those who go to the Eucharist in love and stay after Communion.  He promises those life-giving waters granted to the soul. I feel He uses life-giving waters many times as a symbol of His flowing grace.

In Deuteronomy 10:20-21, a first reading in the votive Mass of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, it refers to the great and terrible things God has done.

Deuteronomy 10:20-21

Yahweh your God is the one whom you must fear and serve; to him you must hold firm; in his name take your oaths.  Him you must praise, he is your God: for you he has done these great and terrible things which you have seen for yourselves;

I see the great and terrible things with the use of water in the Scriptures.

The floods of Noah were used to purify the race who were disobeying God.

God parted the Red Sea so Moses could lead the Israelites across the sea to freedom. Those that opposed Moses were buried by the waters of the sea.

I see John the Baptist baptize with water. And I see the life-giving waters flow forth from the pierced Heart of Christ.

I see the mural in China, Indiana, at our Center.

Messenger: I see the life-flowing waters of Lucia's vision with the words grace and mercy.

Messenger: I saw the waters of Falmouth destroy so much in a little town where Mary chose to appear. His Blue Book messages that would lead people to the Eucharist and the tabernacle were blocked there.   The town was flooded.  The water became POLLUTED WATERS.

I see the Lady appear in CLEARWATER, Florida, on the image building to lead the world and the Church into a greater appreciation of the Eucharist. It is there and from there Our Lord wishes to lead priests more and more to consecration and the priestly newsletter. It is there the messages from heaven cry to the earth. It is through the hands of consecrated priests offering Mass that great grace will flow.

(end of excerpts from June 8, 1999 daily message)

Messenger: June 8, 1994 was the day when the message Jesus wanted out on the Falmouth Farm was blocked.

That day, June 8, 1995, one year later I had the vision of the flooding as I was at the Falmouth, Kentucky, Farm.

It is important that we offer everything we do every day as a sacrifice united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass to help obtain grace for the priests, the Church and the world.
