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.

Jesus speaks: Every day during Lent I request each writing begin with this prayer and it is prayed before you read every daily message.

(Originally requested in February 24, 1999 message.)

I am Consumed with Love for Thee and all You Love

Messenger: Consumed with love for Thee, come and possess me. I am Your spouse.

Jesus is the Chief-Priest and Victim. I come in the purity of Mary, most pure, and I unite as His spouse in the offering of the sacrifice, having intense oneness with him.

I am overwhelmed with His love and His power, feeling so deep within my heart and soul the love for each of His souls, feeling my bond with others in the Movement, especially at Mass. My heart sings and cries out with joy. My heart is so warm in my chest at our union as a body pleading to God for the people of the world and the Church. My heart sings and I want to cry because I am consumed with love for Him and all, realizing our complete dependence on His might, being one in the union of it all and united to my beloved friends, the saints. It is all there in my heart, a union in His Heart, my Savior, a union with Father and Holy Spirit in Mary’s pure Heart and a union with my favorite saints and all others and the angels and souls in purgatory. I cry to be united now at Mass with you, my brothers in Florida, and with all in the Movement who have united through their morning offering. Jesus gave us His prayers, Jesus gives us the program. Jesus gives us the tools. He showers His grace. God gives us the Holy Eucharist to bind us in profound union. My heart sings and I cry out: "Lamb of God, You take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us."

She is so Much Like her Mother

Messenger: Have you heard it said, "She is just like her mother", "He is just like his father"? This is our prayer, that they will say about us as children of the Father, "She is just like her Mother", "She is so like Christ". We are created in the image and likeness of God. Our hearts cry out, "Make us likened to You, O God". Let us be so like our Mother, Mary, that they will say of us, "She is so much like her Mother", "He is so much like Jesus". Let us put on Christ that He will live in us.

What POWER, WHAT MIGHT, TO HAVE EACH PERSON a personal spouse of Jesus Christ

Blue Book IV - February 23, 1994

Jesus speaks: My child, you must carry the cross until your death. You cannot blow up and be angry. You must realize that all have imperfections and needs, and that all your apostles are trying to get the job done. Do not be anxious inside. It is My power and My might that will get the job done. You must be one in Me, My personal spouse. You are the spouse of Jesus Christ. I love you. My wants are your wants. You will know burning love in your hearts for each other in proportion to your spousal union with Me. I am God, you are man, you are Mine and I love you.

Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q:  How does my sharing myself in these letters in loving ways help me to love others more?
