I'm with you on that, MaryEllen. We should also ask our Mother Mary to intercede on this behalf.
May God Bless us all; may God Bless America.

I have been praying for a very long time about our election and our country. I made a vow to continue to pray the same Novenas, even after the election was over, to strengthen our leadership and the country. We need all the heavenly help we can get, especially since we are now seeing the plans of some dissidents to disrupt not only the Inauguration, but also to block any and all efforts of the new administration. We all need to continue to pray and perhaps even redouble our efforts.

Yes, can you imagine the responsibility and stress that comes with the office of president? They definitely need our prayers. emoticon

emoticon I like the posts and I pray for peace..

I hope the new President will help everyone and do what is right...such a hard position to be in..


Take time to THINK...It is the source of power.Take Time to READ..It is the fountain of wisdom.
Take time to PRAY..It is the greatest power on earth. Take Time to LOVE and BE LOVED..It is a God-given privilege.
Be FRIENDLY, It is the road to happiness.. take time to LAUGH..it is the music of the soul.
Take time to Give it is too short a day to be selfish.. Take time to DO CHARITY..
it is the key to heaven.

Good insights, everybody. Andromeda, I certainly understand your point, but we can be sure that those who have hatred in their hearts are not at peace - and nobody knows that better than God, without Whom there is no peace. Our country needs a lot of prayer. True peace will not be the result of any political process; true peace is a gift from God. Let us pray for peace!

I know what you mean. Many times I start my rosary with a few intentions and our Holy Mother causes it to bloom into many intentions. Lately I find myself praying for our incoming Presidential Administration, and victims. Victims of war, slavery, sex trafficking, neglect (the very young and the elderly). I will continue to pray for these intentions until Our Lady changes them. She's good at leading me where I need to go.

Amen, each Monday evening, for the last two years our parish have been reciting a Patriotic rosary praying for each state and Office in these United States. What a wonderful miracle it would be if we could see true peace in our land.

Let Go and Let God!

I was saying my rosary this morning for personal peace, peace in our nation and peace in our world. As I was praying, it suddenly occurred to me that there are probably many people who are "at peace" with spreading fear and hatred. Although I am pretty sure God knows what my intentions are, I felt the need to be more specific and changed the intention of my prayer to removing the hate from our hearts.

I was just curious to know what anyone else's thoughts were on the matter
