How is your friendship with Jesus? Do you find in prayer a daily space to speak with Him? In these complicated months that we are living, perhaps sometimes you forget to pray, but remember: nobody will listen to you better than He will. With prayer, you enter into dialogue with God, who is Father. Pope Francis says that “if we do not pray, we will not have the strength to go forward in life. Prayer is like the oxygen of life.” During this Advent, share the words of the Holy Father with your friends and remind them that it’s necessary to pray for the challenges facing humanity and the mission of the Church, because “we can do many things, but without prayer, it doesn’t work.”
“The heart of the Church’s mission is prayer.
Prayer is the key for us to be able to enter into dialogue with the Father.
Every time we read a short passage from the Gospel we hear Jesus speaking to us. We have a conversation with Jesus. We listen to Jesus and we reply. And this is prayer.
By praying, we change reality. And we change our hearts. Our heart changes when we pray.
We can do many things,but without prayer, it does not work. We pray that that our personal relationship with Jesus Christ be nourished by the Word of God and a life of prayer.”
Each month, The Pope Video disseminates the Holy Father’s prayer intentions regarding the challenges facing humanity and the mission of the Church.
