Radical Conversion and Passionate Faith

I have this campaign, prayer, passion that keeps being put on my heart.

Jesus tells us over and over again in Sacred Scripture that if we ask in prayer, we will receive.

"And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith" -Matthew21:22
"And I tell you, Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks recieves, and he who seeks, finds, and to him who knocks it will be oepened. -Luke 11:9-10

But how much do we really believe this?

Our country, society, culture is in deep water. So many people are drowning in their sins and aren't even aware of it. Arguably it is hurtling towards mass spiritual and moral destruction. Yet how much do we really pray that all this can abruptly come to and end and turn back to faith?

This is the prayer that is repeatedly been put on my heart with a deep desire to encourage others to pray it also.

A prayer for radical conversion and a return to faith.

Anyone who is familiar with the story of Our Lady of Guadalupe knows that she converted thousands of Latin Americans, who were deep in idol worship, to the Faith. This was going on at the same time that the Church was losing many people to the Protestant Reformation. You want to know what though, during this time there actually was a net gain of Catholics. This was deemed impossible, these people were so immersed in sin, yet they came to know the joy and peace that comes with faith. Our Lady's intercession is powerful, she wants souls to come to know and love her Son.

So I beg of you, pray for radical conversion. Have faith that impossible things can happen, for with God all things are possible. Ask in prayer for conversion and a return to the Faith in our country and have faith we will receive it.

Live Joy.
