The Power of Prayer - by Grainne McEntee
A simple request has gone out here from the Casa de Dom Ignacio here in Abadiania to take 10 minutes every Thursday evening at 9 pm to say prayers for the continued health, strength & protection of our beloved Medium Joao to continue his God given mission for humanity. This is at local time wherever you are in the world.
I know not by what methods rare
But this I know God answers prayer.
I know not when he sends the word
That tells us fervent prayer is heard.
I know it cometh - soon or late
Therefore we need to pray & wait.
I know not if the blessing sought
Will come in just the way I thought.
I leave my prayers with Him alone
Whose will is wiser than my own.
Everything has a vibration. Prayer is very powerful high vibration.
When we pray we talk to God. We are all children of God & we are being touched by the hand of God at the Casa de Dom Ignacio here in Abadiania. Who ever we perceive God to be.
Medium Joao regularly reminds us that he is just a man.' It is God who heals. I am just an instrument in His Divine Hands.'
Also the Casa is a universal house of love where the medicine is love. There are no dogmas or religions here. All belief systems, all creeds & colours are welcome. Those without faith are welcome also. Nobody is turned away. The Entity will receive everyone & waits until everyone is seen. The triangle at the Casa is a very potent symbol. Pointing upwards towards the heavens it is a portal between the spiritual & the physical worlds. There are countless petitions for help placed there every day. It is acombination of faith, love & charity. Every time we go in the line at the Casa we are asking for help from the Divine Power, a greater wisdom than us. This is prayer.
Current is the heart of the Casa work. Sitting in the current rooms we are in a prayerful state asking for help also. Prayers from all denominations in Portuguese & English are said in the current rooms to fuel the work of the Casa, helping Medium Joao incorporate & to fulfil his extraordinary healing mission.
We pray to raise the vibration of love at the Casa &to cleanse any dense energy in and around us & to invoke the Entities of Light& Love to come from the higher plains to somehow alleviate our suffering helping us to forgive ourselves, forgive others, to love ourselves & love others as our brother , the ascended Master Jesus taught us to.
The Lords Prayer is said a lot at the Casa. This is a very famous prayer said to have been given by Jesus to the apostles to teach them & in turn us how to pray.
For some the Our Father from its original Aramaic is easier to resonate with here it is
Prayer to the Cosmic Birther
O Cosmic Birther of all radiance and vibration, soften the ground of our being and carve out a space within us where your presence, can abide.
Fill us with your creativity so that we may be empowered to bear the fruit of your mission.
Let each of our actions bear fruit in accordance with our desires.
Endow us with the wisdom to produce and share what each being needs to grow and flourish.
Untie the tangled threads of destiny that bind us As we release others from the entanglement of past errors.
Do not let us be seduced by that which would divert us from our truepurpose,
Rather, illuminate the opportunities of the present moment.
For you are the ground and the fruitful vision
The birth, power and fulfilment, as all is gathered and made whole once again.
This is a good place to start. Also it good to keep in mind that what we want & what we need are usually poles apart. Surrendering is important, handing everything over to a Higher Power. This is the true essence of prayer.
Try it you may just get to like it. The rewards are immeasurable.
