Prayer that knows no bounds

As Missionaries of God’s Love Sisters, we have a heart for intercession. Intercession is praying on behalf of people, situations and for our world. We cry out to God, asking for His grace to bring peace, hope, healing, life, provision, protection, whatever it is that may be needed. In Evangelii Gaudium, Pope Francis says, “intercession is like a leaven in the heart of the Trinity”. Prayer brings transformation. We pray in intercession to our Father, through Jesus and the Holy Spirit. We also ask for the help of our friends in Heaven, the Saints. 

People will often ask us to pray for their intentions, which I believe is such a privilege. It is one of the greatest joys to be praying for someone and to see God working. Sometimes, God’s hand comes in different ways to how we thought it might or how we imaged. Even when the answer to prayer is a surprising one, it is always an incredible blessing. In a recent class, we spoke about how God’s love has no bounds and neither should our prayer. Praying through intercession teaches me to become more in tune with God’s heart, to trust in God’s timing and plans and to proclaim that God is King, He is the one with the answers
