“God did not give us a spirit of cowardice,
but rather a spirit of power and of love and of self-discipline.”
1 Tim 1:7
Seek His Face, and He will Heal Our Land
According to my planner, October 2, 2022, is the Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem. As a Catholic, I never heard teaching on why we need to pray for Jerusalem. However, Psalm 122:6 commands us to “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! May they prosper who love you!” This was a command from God, not a mere suggestion. Like the Jews, we want peace and prosperity rather than war and poverty for our country.
It is through the line of the Jewish people that God sent us his son to give us salvation. Even knowing they were his chosen, the Jewish people were not always faithful to their covenants with God. They would often find themselves in trouble time and time again, begging God to save them from oppression, hunger, and slavery, to name a few things. I suppose we could say they had short memories, not unlike us in the United States today. Like the Jewish people who forgot about God’s promises to them, many times to their demise, we too are forgetting, and to our demise. God sent warnings to the Israelites to change their ways. He has done the same for us through Our Lady of Good Success and many other approved apparitions from Our Blessed Mother.
During the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, Our Lady of Good Success appeared to a Spanish nun in Quito, Ecuador, to warn us of what would happen if we did not turn back to God in prayer. Sister Maria De Jesus Torres received many messages from Our Lady that speak directly of our times. Our Lady warned, “Unbridled passions will give way to a total corruption of customs because Satan will reign through the Masonic sects, targeting the children to ensure general corruption.” Our Lady also warned, “Unhappy the children of those times!” Satan is going after our children.
We are Unhappy Children
Women are going to great lengths to fight for the right to kill their unborn babies. Children are no longer born either male or female. Their genders have been confused, thus confusing them about in whose image they are created. Satan has unleashed his hatred for God in many unprecedented ways, and he is using us as pawns because, like the Jews, we have forgotten God’s promises. Our Lady warned, “Unhappy times will come wherein those who should fearlessly defend the rights of the Church will instead, blinded by the light, give their hand to the church’s enemies and do their bidding.” We are indeed unhappy children in our time doing the bidding of the father of lies.
Pope Benedict said in his General Audience on October 12, 2005, “The heart of the covenant of God and his people was the moral law, the legislation of social justice effectively serving the common good was a wonderful feature of Jewish society. A good justice system fosters peace, and it is no coincidence that “Jerusalem” means “City of Peace.” In the book of Chronicles 7:14, God also tells us how to receive His blessing upon our land. “…if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
Praise be to you, our God who hears us from Heaven! We beg you to forgive us for our wicked sins that greatly offend you, destroy families and turn our children from you. We humble ourselves praying that you will heal us from the effects of our sins and bring peace to our nation and Jerusalem.
Call to Action
I will include prayers for Jerusalem and the United States of America in my prayers and ask others in my family, church, and community to do the same.
