Are you interested in receiving gifts from the Lord? How about organizing your life, your heart, and your soul toward heaven? This is just a taste of what can happen by blessing and adoring God thru prayer. Listen as Richaél Lucero continues to answer the question, “What should your side of the prayer conversation include?” focusing on prayers of blessing and adoration.
Declaration from the end of the episode:
In the name of Jesus, I believe and declare…
- The Father is constantly blessing me.
- When I accept the Father’s blessings, I bless him.
- When I accept the Father’s blessings, I bring heaven to earth.
- Through blessing, I encounter the Father.
- I am a creature, created by God, my loving Father.
- God is almighty and he has done great things for me.
Regarding the two movements of blessing
Two fundamental forms express this movement: our prayer ascends in the Holy Spirit through Christ to the Father – we bless him for having blessed us; it implores the grace of the Holy Spirit that descends through Christ from the Father – he blesses us.Catechism of the Catholic Church 2627
We love, because he first loved us.1 John 4:19
Adoration is the first attitude of man acknowledging that he is a creature before his Creator.Catechism of the Catholic Church 2628
‘My soul magnifies the Lord,
and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour, for he has looked with favour on the lowliness of his servant.
Surely, from now on all generations will call me blessed;
for the Mighty One has done great things for me,
and holy is his name.Luke 1:46-49 NRSVACE
To adore God is to acknowledge, in respect and absolute submission, the “nothingness of the creature” who would not exist but for God. To adore God is to praise and exalt him and to humble oneself, as Mary did in the Magnificat, confessing with gratitude that he has done great things and holy is his name. The worship of the one God sets man free from turning in on himself, from the slavery of sin and the idolatry of the world.Catechism of the Catholic Church 2097
