Cleansing Prayer

I just want to share this nice prayer I used after praying for other people's prayer request. A friend shared it to me after telling her that I feel tired after praying for someone.

"Heavenly Father, in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour, 
by the power of the Holy Spirit, 
we pray that the cleansing power of the precious blood of your Son come upon us right now. 
Purify us and wash us clean with the blood of Jesus 
from the top of our head down to the very soles of our feet. 
Let this blood penetrate the very marrow of our bones
 to cleanse us from any entanglement 
from whatever spirit we have come in contact with during the course of our intercession. 
Anoint us with the gifts of the Holy Spirit and refresh our body, soul, and spirit. 
And may the sign of your Holy Cross drive away all evil spirits from us. 
In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. 
Amen."

4:44

While I am working in the office, I felt sleepy and started to question myself if I really like what I am doing. I became bored and sad that I wanted to write it down on my physical journal. But because I am too bored, I decided to just write it online using my cellphone. 

Then I noticed the time that shows 4:44. I thought, what is the meaning of this number? Somehow it caught my attention and curiosity. So I searched it on google, and then most of the results are saying that it has a spiritual message from an angel and that I am guided. 

My search led me to this article: https://willowsoul.com/blogs/numbers/5-reasons-why-you-are-seeing-4-44-the-meaning-of-444.

I am somehow glad that it has a good meaning. But I am still bored. I am still sleepy. Maybe I just need to drink coffee. :)

Be Silent

Today, as I listen to the audiobook of Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, a cliche made me reflect about myself. It says “Tell the world what you intend to do but first show it”.

It made me realized thar I have not been quiet and that I am very talkative and all of my goals and plans have been announced already to many people.

As I understand it, Napoleon Hill is suggesting that a person must be quiet so that he would be able to focus on his big goal. Looking back on my younger years where I am able to hit my goals, I can recall that I am a quiet person.

So let me try to be a silent type of person again and take more action to achieve my goals.

Be Opened

Today's homily in the mass is about healing of Jesus to a deaf man who also had difficulty in speaking. Jesus said "Ephphata" which means "be opened" when He healed the man. This situation does not only shows how Jesus heals the man physically but spiritually as well.

As many of us know, many people are deaf in the word of God. They can hear it but they do not really understand and live with it. What Jesus has done when He came on earth is make people hear and spread the good news that Jesus saves us. Jesus is the Saviour.

When our ears are open, we can also talk about what we heard. Let us listen to God and live our lives following Him.

Beautiful Mind

Listening to audio book of As a Man Thinketh, I recently realized that indeed man's mind is powerful and beautiful. It is powerful because whatever man feeds his mind, that will result in how he will live his life. It will affect his actions and feelings. 

I am amazed at the idea that it is like a garden. If it is like a garden, then it must be beautiful. But of course, garden needs to be maintained well. Weeds would attack the plants. So the gardener needs to make sure that weeds will be plucked so that the plants will stay healthy and the garden beautiful. I realized that everyday I must always maintain my mind to stay healthy and beautiful. It is normal that I can hear or feel negativity from my environment. However, if I am mentally strong, no negativity will bring me down. 

I hope that I can keep the habit of being mindful to weeds that enters my mind. Most of the time, those things that makes me sad are ideas injected to me by people who might intentionally want to discourage me. Or they might not really intentional in saying negative things to me but I have to be mindful and careful in accepting ideas. I have to be wise in accepting ideas because if I will let weeds enter my mind, then I will most likely feel bad. 

Our mind is powerful and beautiful so we must also take very good care of it.

How to Finish a Book in Easier Way

I would like to read as many great books as I can. However, due to work and other activities, I can only allot little time for reading. So it takes so long for me to finish a book. 

But lately, I remember that there is already audio books where in someone is reading the book and all I have to do is listen to it even if I am doing other activities such as walking or house hold chores. 

Now I am starting to listen to audio books and I just recently finished two great books which are "The Richest Man in Babylon" and "As a Man Thinketh. 

So for those who are like me, go ahead and look for the audio book version of books that you would like to finish.

Richest Man in Babylon

I just want to share this book that I have been reading which is entertaining and educational at the same time. The Richest Man in Babylon translated by George S. Clason.

I am amazed on the stories being narrated on this book. The financial problems that I am encountering is the same financial problems that the characters in the stories experienced. Considering that the book was written too long ago at the time of the early civilization of Babylon.

I don't want to spoil those avid readers but just try to grab a copy and specially if you want guidance about finances. You will surely enjoy and appreciate the book.

End of sharing.. :)
