“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Luke 11:9-10




Jesus said,

“So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you;

search, and you will find;

knock, and the door will be opened for you.

For everyone who asks receives,

and everyone who searches finds,

and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.


– Luke 11:9-10 (NRSV)






“Do you see the effectiveness of prayer when it is done properly?

Are you not convinced like me

that, if we do not obtain what we ask God for, it is because

we are not praying with faith,

with a heart pure enough,

with enough confidence,

or that we are not persevering in prayer the way we should?


God has never refused nor will ever refuse anything

to those who ask for His graces in the way they should.

Prayer is the great recourse available to us to get out of sin,

to persevere in grace,

to move God’s heart

and to draw upon us all kinds of blessing from Heaven,

whether for the soul

or to meet our temporal needs.”


– St. John Mary Vianney






I ask…I seek…and I knock at Your door, Lord Jesus.

I believe…I persevere…and I trust.

Lord, I accept Your will!
