Have you ever thought about how many of Jesus’ miracles, revolved around food and boats. On several occasions he fed thousands of people by multiplying a few loaves of bread and some fish.
When the Apostle’s boat was being tossed and turned in the midst of a storm, Jesus walked across the water to them. He gave them hope. “Have courage.” He said, “Be not afraid, it is I.”, and he calmed the storm.
Jesus often used a boat and the sea to escape to a quiet place to pray and get renewed. At the end of a long day he would invite the apostles to get into the boat and come away with him to the other shore.
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is like sailing over to the other shore. Jesus invites us to leave behind our busyness and come away with him to pray and rest in his love. He wants to wash away our fears, soak us in his peace, and fill us with the wisdom and insights to navigate through the rough seas of life, which many of us are facing right now.
Prayer Power’s mission is to inspire people to get into the boat with Jesus - come away with him - be renewed and refreshed in his peace and love, and ask him to multiply the number of men and women entering the priesthood and consecrated life…and to multiply the number of people falling in love with his Eucharistic Heart. Jesus Christ patiently waits for us…he calls-“Come to me all you who are burdened and I will refresh you.”
This year, Prayer Power is committed to three goals: 1) Recruit an additional 1,000 people to pray before the Blessed Sacrament for the Prayer Power intentions; 2) Encourage all Prayer Power members to ask God to send 20 men to St. Charles Seminary; 3) Reach more people through the Internet and social networking.
To do this we need your prayers and your financial help. We would be very grateful if you would support the Prayer Power mission.
