In search of God's blessing
After all we have meditated in this work we see how God has blessed his creation, he has blessed some holy men and women put aside for his plan of salvation, he continues to bless us daily with all his gifts.
In return we must come to him daily to obtain his blessings, we must bless him back and we must become a blessing for all our brothers and sisters. We may find great inspiration in the psalms and in the song of the three young men.
We must have great faith in Jesus who is the way to the Father, the Lord of our Salvation. We must thank God and praise Him for his Omnipotence, his Wisdom and His unconditional Love and Mercy. We must rejoice whenever we come to meet him in our prayers, we must ask him to shine his light upon us and to forgive us our sins, we must ask him to favour us with his grace and blessings. God is our healing and sanctification.
When we come before God we must annihilate ourselves in true humility, our objective must not be to come with a list of petitions to be answered, we must come full of praise and thanksgiving, we must simply put our selves before Him silently as he has taught us : Be still and know that I am the Lord your God. (Psalm 46:10)
Let us seek God just because He is God and we need him so much in order to love him with all our hearts, with all our minds, with all our souls and with all our strength. Even though we may need so much from Him, let us simply come seeking his Kingdom within us and trusting that everything will be given unto us (Matthew 6:33).
As we come before him we must leave all our material world behind, we must allow our spirits to come forth in order to worship God in spirit and in truth (John 4:23). We must desire to be with God, our zeal must be very ardent as the fire of the seraphim who burn with desire of God, who cover their eyes in humility before his Presence, and their feet in order not to go away from Him, who fly in the spirit always before him, saying: Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord our God, Heaven and earth are full of your Glory. (Isaiah 6:2-3)
Let us remember that whenever we come before God, we will always be blessed, Moses' face was always shining after he spoke with the Lord, Jacob wrestled with God until he obtained his blessing, you and me must pray ardently and ask the Lord to bless us, knowing that in our joy and peace is manifested the Presence of his Love.
When the three young men in the furnace started blessing and praising God, the angel of Lord came down to protect them and saved them from the blazing fire. When all those who were sick came with faith to trust in Jesus the Son of the Living God, they were healed according to their faith. When Paul and Silas were in prison, having their hands and feet bound in chains, they did not despair but at midnight they started singing praises to God, they blessed him and trusted in Him, there was an earthquake and their chains were removed, they were set free. (Acts 16:23-27).
It is a privilege to be a Catholic because we are blessed also in the Sacraments. The seven Sacraments of Baptism, Confession, Holy Communion, Confirmation, Matrimony, Anointing of the sick, and Holy Orders are real encounters with God's blessing. They mean much more to us when we come reverently to receive them in faith and humility. To come to God in our prayers is also an encounter that will derive great blessings in accordance to our faith.
So with great faith, let us come before God to receive His blessing, full of confidence in His infinite Mercy. God is rich in blessings, he is waiting for our visit.
By guidance of the Holy Spirit, I have written this prayer which I do daily in intimate moments of conversation with the Lord. I experience his blessing in a physical and spiritual way. During my moments of praise I experience sighs and moans, cries and sometimes my entire body jumps with joy as if I had an electric shock in my heart. I urge you my dear friend in Christ to take advantage of the great blessings that God has in store for everyone of us:
Bless me, O Lord
Heavenly Father, Almighty God.
I humble myself before your Presence. What a joy it is to come to you.
I thank you and I praise for your infinite Majesty, Omnipotence and Perfections.
Please forgive me all my sins.
Lord I come to you in my nothingness.
I want to worship you and adore you, to love you with all my heart, with all my mind, with all my soul and with all my strength.
I want to burn with desire for you like an angel.
I need you my Lord, I am nothing without you.
I ask you to raise me before your Glory.
Shine your light upon me, allow me to walk with you and always do your Holy Will , protect me and bless me O Merciful Lord.
Fill me with your Holy Spirit, grant me peace, love and joy. Heal me, bless me and sanctify me O Lord; make me a blessing for all those around me.
Bless me O Lord, meditated prayer
