Novena to the Holy Spirit
Day 1

✞  In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen. ✞

Almighty and eternal God

Send forth your Spirit
Who brought order from chaos
At the beginning of the universe

Baptized in your spirit
May be filled with the seven gifts
So that we may forever do your will
And renew the face of the Earth


Pray the Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be

Our Yoncé who art from Houston, flawless be thy name. Thy queendom come, thy world be run, by girls as it is intended. Give us this day, a fem'nist way, and love us till the end of time. As we forgive white girls who dance to Formation. And lead us not to texts with fuckboys. But deliver us from scrubs. God damn, God damn, God damn.

God’s not a table waiter, or a bus boy to help us escape life. He’s not a genie in a bottle who grants our wishes. He’s our Father. Prayer is not synonymous to abracadabra. And the bible isn’t a book of principles we quote in order to get help for a situation we might be in; it’s an invitation into relationship with Jesus.

Small rayer request

Even a single hail mary would be apreciated.

I’ve been feeling unusually sick this last week with nerve pain, it’s been so bad this time it’s been messing with my sleep cycle.
I’m supposed to be meeting my catholic man on saturday.
please pray for me that I’m well enough to show up, he drives so far just to see me, I really don’t want to dissapoint him😢

Big thank you in advance and God bless you
I’ll offer up my pain for you all in return😌
Dominus vobiscum
Or, slave isusu christi (I’m a ukrainian Catholic)😇

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father, Who art in heaven
Hallowed be Thy Name;
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Prayer of the Historians

O great Herodotus, Father of history, guardian of time, Chronicler of man’s stupidity, Muse of the procrastinator and desperate alike– Hear the cries of your people! Deliver us from the misguided, the ignorant, and those that take thy knowledge and dilute it for the uneducated. Give strength to we that stand as centurions, ready for the final charge, that we may strike them with the knowledge they lack, until the great Library of Alexandria be restored– Hear our prayer O Father of History.

The Irish Polyglot’s Prayer

Our Father who art from Ireland,
hallowed be thy blog.
Thy book come.
Thy will be done
on earth as it is in online.
Give us this day our daily language hacking tip,
and forgive us our grammar mistakes,
as we forgive those who lie about their fluency,
and lead us not into temptation to learn another new language,
but deliver us from monolingualism.

DAY 2549

Sopaan, New Delhi               Apr  7, 2015              Tue  10:45 pm 

Rochelle, we are so grieved at the news of the passing of your dear Father .. all our prayers and condolences with you and the family ,.. be brave and strong .. we are with you ..  

I rest and sleep in the room that my father slept in here in Sopaan .. I travel through his library and his work desk where he sat for hours and years writing contemplating, thinking and putting all that he worked on into words .. his room remains and is kept the way he left it .. I rummage through some of the books , the hundreds that adorn the shelves, and then pick up his ‘rachnavali’ his autobiography, a volume of it and run through the pages , and realise in enraged fury that I have not spent anytime with him at all .. with his words with his philosophy of life and beyond, with his literature and his writing .. every word every sentence a mammoth learning .. some of it I put out early in the morning on FB and Twitter … some I shall keep to myself … its a sort of selfishness .. sharing with all what belongs to me and my blood .. but share I must .. his genius must be made vocal and available to all .. I am tempted to give up all that I involve myself in, my work my responsibilities and my insecurities, to just exist in the realm of Father’s words and works …

There is rehearsal for the event tomorrow at the Rashtrapati Bhavan, the Presidents House, the ex residence of the Viceroy of Great Britain when India was ruled by the British, the largest private residence in the world, I believe .. its an architectural marvel … and the investiture ceremony shall take place in the historic Ashoka Hall, the hall that resounds with history .. the place where Lord Mountbatten, the last Viceroy handed over the Independent charge to India, the place where the Republic of India was inaugurated and the first Indian President, Dr Rajendra Prasad was appointed …

I have been in this hall on many occasions. The two early Padma Awards for my Father and my Padma Shri were conducted here .. as also my Padma Bhushan.. then we had moved inside to the Grand Hall with its incredible ornate ceiling work, for the other Padma Awards for Jaya and Aishwarya .. this year it is back to the Ashoka Hall ..

So many memories are attached to this residence .. difficult to describe them now, without breaking some personal protocol .. so another day maybe, when it is felt by me to state those moments .. then …

What I have discovered , and to my great relief and joy is that in the pages that I have been through of my Father’s works, there are vast pages devoted to why and where and how each one of his works were written and devised .. the meanings behind the thoughts that kept pouring out ..

Thus is a blessing .. for now I hope to be able to educate myself and in turn others that could be interested in his writings … I am so happy with this .. so happy ..

As I close for the day, it is so heartening to have the family coming together for tomorrow’s investiture .. Abhishek who is shooting in Dubai, shall come in early morning tomorrow … Aishwarya and Aaradhya have just landed from Mumbai .. Navya and Agastya have come home from London school, for their Easter break and all shall be present to witness this moment  … and of course NIkhil and Shweta and Jaya .. all shall be with me in that historic hall for the morrow ..

I shall depart .. and be a part of tomorrow with you ..

My love …

Amitabh Bachchan

Our Father, Who art in heaven
Hallowed be Thy Name;
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.
—  Matthew 6:9-13 and Luke 11:2-4

anonymous asked:

How do you pray? Do I just say like "hello God, ________"?

It definitely has to come from the heart. I would advise you to read Matthew 6:9-13.

It says to address God as “Father,” which is very important. This develops the intimate and loving relationship that God wants, and it seems you want. God is your Holy Father, Your Heavenly Father, and you are is immeasurably loved son/daughter. Let God be the Father, and you be His child.

Praise Him as Creator of all and glorify Him and thank Him. We would be no where without God.

Ask Him to fill you up. Fill you to the point where, if your faith is shaken, pressed down, and stirred, it still overflows out of you.

Ask Him to guide you away from the evil ways of the world and strengthen and keep hold of you.

Lastly, glorify Him again, because without His love, we are dead.

Jesus also tells us to be persistent when you pray (Luke 11:5-10)!

 Then pray for all the things in your life that need prayed for. Don’t ever forget to pray for yourself.

The Johnlock Prayer

Our fathers, who art in heaven, Mofftisson be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on this show as it has always been written.

Give us this day our daily episode.

And forgive us our doubts, as we forgive those who doubt us.

And lead us forever into temptation, and deliver us from antis.

For thine is the script, and the canon, and the subtext

Forever and ever
