Prayers Jesus and the Blessed Mother Taught Lori
April 30, 1994 – September 17, 1996
Prayer of Consecration to the Sacred Heart
(December 28, 1995) Our Lord requested that this prayer and a prayer of consecration to His Mother be said daily
Father, Eternal Wisdom and Majesty, transfuse my entire being
with the light of your love. Place my heart within yours. Place my mind
within yours. Place my spirit within yours. I consecrate my life to the
Sovereign and Omnipotent God of All Creation. Help me to be
mesmerized by your love. Help me to forsake my earthly attachments.
Help me not to be distracted by the things of this earth. Lord, I come
before you on my knees, completely willing to empty the blood from my
veins and to accept your blood. Help me to be hungry for your Body and
Blood every day, as you desire to nourish me in the Holy Eucharist. I ask
now for my seat at the heavenly banquet, that my seat remain empty until
you, Lord, call me home to heaven. I consecrate and offer my life as
reparation, that I may obtain by this offering a seat at your banquet for
someone who is lost from you. With abundant gratitude I accept the blood
you have shed for me at Calvary. Let me be distracted in your love and
nurtured by your blood. May the name of the Lord be blessed forever.

pomps and works; and I give myself entirely to Jesus Christ, the Incarnate
Wisdom, to carry my cross after him all the days of my life, and to be more
faithful to him than I have ever been before. In the presence of all the
heavenly court I choose thee this day, for my Mother and Mistress. I deliver
and consecrate to thee as thy slave, my body and soul, my goods, both
interior and exterior, and even the value of all my good actions, past,

by thy mercy transform me, that I may be pleasing in thy sight. I am a

name of the Lord forever. Amen.
Prayer for Humility

Father, Eternal Master, grant us the garments of humility that we
may come before you desiring reconciliation. For in that hour, Father,

of heart, and gently cover us in the sweet fragrance of humility. Dear
Father, turn not your face nor your ears from our cries, but in your mercy
hear and answer us. Amen.

of Each Heart, look with pity upon your children. See the chalices which
they themselves have filled and empty them, O Spirit of God, into the
ocean of your forgiveness. Set a new chalice in front of each heart and
bestow the gift of holiness upon each one of us. Fill every chalice with
good works, desires for your love, and graces from the Eternal Gift-Giver.

like me say to console you? I shall say that I am grieved by my offenses
to you. I shall say that I will worship and adore the Union of the Three, the
Most Holy and Blessed Trinity. On my knees do I come to whisper love
songs to you. Grant me your passion to love you. Grant me your heart to
love the world. Grant me your eyes that I may see your crucified body
impaled upon the heart of everyone I meet. And when I love the stranger,
it is because I love you. When I do my work silently, it shall be to console
your grieving heart. When I am forgiving of those who mock and wound
me, I will be anointing all your wounds. When I console others, then I am
consoling you, my God. Amen.
Prayer Prior to the Sacrament of Reconciliation

Eternal Father, I am a sinner; have mercy on me. Beloved Jesus,
I am a sinner; have mercy on me. Beloved Holy Spirit, I am a sinner; have
mercy on me. My heart and my soul are blackened by my offenses. Grant
me a voice of confession and not one of omission. Permit my most holy
Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary, to place her loving arms about me as I
confess my sins. Permit her to obtain for me mercy and forgiveness from
you, my God. Grant me your eyes to see my iniquities. I place them at the
foot of the Cross and I ask you to cover them in your Holy Precious Blood.
Heal me of the scars of my sin, O Lord, and make me a pure, unspotted
lamb in your sight. Amen.
A Prayer for Eucharistic Ministers
(January 16, 1996)
O Spirit of Wisdom and Truth, with gratitude I accept this great
opportunity to feed your poor and hungry people. Cleanse me and forgive
me for all of my offenses. Let me be a pure vessel to bring the Bread of
Life to God’s people. I am only a servant at the foot of the Cross. As the
blood from your wounds spills upon me, allow me to place it in the chalice
of your mercy and give it to your people to drink. Allow me to carry your
broken and wounded body in my arms and present you to those who
hunger. And if I should wander from the flock, come and find me, Lord.
Nurture me, forgive me, and feed me, so that once again I may become
one of the gardeners to take care of your precious rose [the Church] upon
the earth. Amen.
Prayer for Spiritual Aridity
(February 13, 1996)
Father Eternal, the desert surrounds me. The mountains reject me.
The valleys scorn me. The rivers laugh at me. I call your name, my God,
for you are my refuge. Place sandals upon my feet that they shall not be
scorched by the hot desert sand. Place a staff of perseverance in my
hands. Send your Holy Spirit to guide me. Father, create in me a deeper
hunger and thirst for you. When the hot sun of loneliness beats down upon
my brow, let me find shelter within the sanctuary of your wounds. When
the snake and scorpion come to lure me away from you, let me remember
that my only comfort lies within the contemplation of your holy passion.
Though my soul is experiencing labor pains, grant me the courage to grow
as you desire it. Let me remember, Father, that you are the only water in
the desert of aridity. Father, when it is time for my birth as a new spiritual
being, I desire you to cut the umbilical cord of complacency. Walk with
me ,O Lord, through the desert and stay ever by my side, my Lord and my

for Protection and Intercession

Mother of the Eternal Flame of Love, Mother of the Heart and Soul
of All That is Seen and Unseen, let your heart be a hiding place for sinners.
Let your heart be the cavern that I may find the eternal shelter and peace
that God so longs to bestow upon me. Mother Immaculate, please permit
your mantle of grace and protection to shield me from the eyes of God and
from the evil one’s plots to capture my soul. Mother, so full of love and
tenderness, permit me to rest in the sanctuary of your most Immaculate
Heart. Let your Immaculate Heart be as the nest for the Lord’s lost
sparrows to return. May the name of my beloved Jesus be praised and
adored and blessed from every heart and tongue forever and ever. Amen.
Prayer Before Every Endeavor
(March 7, 1996)
O Holy God, brutalized for my offenses, given a king’s robe in
mockery, given a king’s scepter in mockery, please take this cloak which
is a cloak of authority and holiness, and cover our work with it. In this way,
you will be glorified and our work will be blessed in heaven. O Holy Jesus,
our King, please permit us to be your subjects. Let the garment that
touched your Holy and Sacred Body touch us and our work. This will turn
all mockeries and persecutions into abundant blessings. May the name of
the King of Israel be honored and adored for all eternity. Amen.
Prayer of Consecration to the Holy Will of God
(March 10, 1996)
Abundant God of Love and Mercy, Source of all Comfort and
Peace, let your Holy Perfect Will consume me. Let the Will of God be my
food day and night, for I shall have no rest outside the sanctuary of your
Holy Will. I consecrate and offer myself to be the keeper of the house of
your Holy Will, for your Will is as a house ,O Lord, where the walls and roof
fortify and protect one. I consecrate myself to guard the sanctuary of your
Holy Will as a priceless treasure. I consecrate myself to be the pliable
metal for you to use as you desire. I consecrate my heart to your Sacred
Heart, that I may be used freely and without reservation by God Almighty.
May the name of the Lord be blessed and adored for all eternity, and may
the Holy Perfect Will of God be cherished as the light within the darkness.
Prayer Prior to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass
(March 20, 1996)
Blessed God, sweep the floor of my heart and cast the garbage of
my sins into the ocean of forgiveness. Let me have no thoughts, no
concerns, no adversaries in my heart when I come to Mass. Let my heart
be unshackled from its human bondage so that as I approach your altar, my
heart shall be an empty vessel ready for you to use as you will. Let me not
permit worldly adversaries to come between thee and me. Let my ears
hear only your voice. Let my mouth speak only your words. Let everything
I think, and say, and do, be for the glory of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and
Jacob. Let my heart beat with yours all the days of my life. Amen.
Prayer for the Suffering Souls in Purgatory
(April 18, 1996)
O Eternal Wisdom, glorious in majesty, soothe the pain of your
children in purgatory. Let them drink from the eternal fountain of your
mercy. Send your most holy Mother to comfort and nurture those who are
suffering. Father, let the most Blessed Virgin Mary present to you all those
who suffer in the fires of purification, for it is through her motherly womb
they shall be brought into the eternal heaven. For just as the birth of our
precious Lord, the womb of Mary, our Mother, purifies and sanctifies all
souls, she is the bridge between purgatory and heaven. Therefore, we
commit their souls to her Immaculate Heart.
Oh, what blessings does the Queen of Heaven and Earth obtain for
sinners. Listen, O Israel. Listen, O Israel. Listen, O Israel. Amen.
Prayer before the Tabernacle
Father most merciful, most majestic in glory, teach us to breathe
mercy as your beloved Son did, for truly Christ lives in us. Let every breath
we take be as his last one—the one that obtained for us all the blessings
from Heaven. Father, in your most intimate love heaven is made manifest
upon the earth in the Holy Sanctuary of the Tabernacle. When we view the
tabernacle, let us see your beloved Son, Jesus, taking his last breath for
love of us. O God of Mercies, we bless you. Amen.
Prayer for Comfort through the Sacred Wounds
(May 7, 1996)
Lord of Infinite Vision, Lord of All Interior Quests, Lord of the Weak
and of the Mighty, you are a sanctuary for the weak and humble of heart.
You, O Lord, are a branch for the sparrow. You, O Lord, are a leaf to cover
and protect all creatures. Grant us refuge in your holy sacred wounds.
Bathe us in their sweet consolations. Feed us with their sweet and holy
nourishment. It is through your sacred wounds that one may journey ever
closer to your heart. May the name of the Lord be praised and adored
Prayer for Discernment
(June 28, 1996)
Father of the Four Corners of All the Heaven and Earth, teach us
to discern between your most majestic and holy influence, and that of the
malignant deceiver. Though the deceiver places luxurious carpeting under
our bare feet, let us feel the sting of the nails. Eternal Father, let us not be
fooled by the mirages in the desert of sin. For only you, Lord, give us the
water from the chalice of your mercy. Let us always recall your attributes
and be steadfast and without hesitation to pursue the Kingdom of God. For
as we pursue the Kingdom of God, all things, therefore, shall be given. In
the name of the God of Israel, be blessed forever and ever. Amen.

(September 4, 1996)
Almighty and Everlasting Eternal Father, who knows the wilderness
of each heart, come with your grace and heavenly aid. Pour forth water on

alone become our desire. Let our hearts mourn for you, for you are the
only true consolation of the soul. May the name of the God of Israel be
blessed forever. Amen.
