A very powerful prayer for difficult situations

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

Friends, this morning I want to share with you a very powerful prayer. It is a prayer to the Holy Spirit to be prayed in difficult situations. I can truly testify that many miracles have been obtained through this prayer.

Last night a friend, Barb, commented on my blog about a serious situation regarding a procedure her husband needs and the insurance company won't approve it. (Please pray for them!) I just now read her comment, and was going to share this prayer with her, but I feel moved to share it with all of you.

I have always felt that this prayer is so powerful because the Holy Spirit tends to be the forgotten person of the Holy Trinity. We most often tend to pray to the Father and/or to Jesus. But if we think about it, The Father is, and has always been in Heaven; He sent His Son Jesus to earth. Jesus came to teach us the way to the Father, and to die and rise again to save us, and then to return to the Father. But before He returned to the Father, He promised to leave with us an Advocate (Jn. 14:16). The Holy Spirit is here in the world with us, He is in each of us, and He is here to help us - to teach us, to guide us, and to intercede for us.

So here is the prayer. I learned it and pray it in Spanish, so I am translating it and you may want to adjust the language a little.


Pray once:

May the Father command it, may the Son arrange it, and may the Holy Spirit appease the hearts of those who are against us.

Repeat 10 times:

Come, Holy Spirit, enlighten the hearts of those who can favor us. (or those who can help us)

Pray once:
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be. Amen.

Then all of this is repeated four more times.


It may sound long, but it really isn't. It only takes about 7 minutes to pray.

I know some people question repetitive prayer, but really, quiet, thoughtful repetition calms the soul, and helps us enter into the presence of God.

I invite you to pray this prayer for Barb, if you feel moved to do so.

I have a busy day - three classes for chapel - so I need to get some breakfast and get to work! Have a wonderful day, everyone!

  Thank you, Marge, for this powerful prayer. I was in the most difficult, impossible situation two days ago. (Monday). I had a sleepless night, as I wondered what would become of life. I had no energy to pray. In the morning, I found this prayer online, prayed it. In less than two hours, the impossible happened .... The problem was completely solved. May all praise and thanksgiving be given to our Lord!!!!

  If any of you with big hearts can help me offer this prayer for a special intention, my parents are 90 and 84 years old respectively and they are about to loose their only patrimony for which they worked all their lives.... Their home!!!! because a "family member" lied to them and made them sign the deed of their house as a collateral for a debt of his own. He never said anything to them a trial against my parent went on and no one knew about it, now they have 2 weeks to leave their house. Please I beg of you to please if you have a chance pray for this intention. God will know you are praying for someone else and he will reward you . The Family name is Medina so that you mention that before the prayer. Thank you in advance for those who have the good heart of helping me in this desperate cause.

  Good day!
I was searching online for a prayer to help me focus and pray sincerely to get me out of my predicament. While I believe in God I am not religious and do not conform to any religion. I have been very wavering in my faith and realized my foolishness in not being focused in my approach. I came across your prayer to The Father The Son and the Holy Spirit and realized that it was what I was missing....a simple focused prayer to focus and and I sometimes add small words of politeness like Welcome Holy Spirit or Please Kindly...
Thank you for this prayer and your kindness in sharing it. It has helped me and I am going to teach it to my sons as well.
It has helped me focus and solve my issues and give thanks to God as well.
God bless you immensely.
Wishing you pleasant moments always as you prosper!

    I am praying this prayer you have posted right now for my son Ryan's College roomate Josh, who has been injured in a car crash. He is in Intensive Care, and Ryan is sitting vigil at his side, even though he is not family. It is believed Josh may have fallen sleep at the wheel.
Josh has been suffering and in complete sorrow since losing his best freind who was swept under a city bus, and killed 8 years ago. He is a Firefighter in Northern Ontario. Was headed back to work, after visiting with friends,
I will be praying this prayer and offering it to others I think will benefit from feeling empowered through prayer, especially in difficult situations such as this

    Thank you so much, Marge. I will pray this for the situation with the insurance company and i know that the answer is positive. The Holy Spirit is moving in a great way. From other comments, I see that I need to pray it for some others also. I will definetly do it for my BIL as his diagnosis was with stage 2 lung cancer.
God bless you, my dear Sister in the Lord

    Thank you, Marge for this awesome prayer.
I will print if off my other computer and say it often.
I will also pray for Barb.
We have an adjuster coming to finally look at the storm damage on our farm on Thursday. I just told my husband that we need to say this prayer as we are concerned about what we will be able to repair and replace. Thank you!

    With the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit working for us, we can't go wrong (as long as we are in God's Will for us!)
