Prayer Blog

I found this over at Happy Catholic. I love this idea; Oramus is a whole site/blog dedicated to the fruitful purpose of praying. They even have a prayer for praying for strangers.
Scripture tells us to pray always and without ceasing. Check out the "News" link on the site to go to the blog portion. They say they will do occasional posting. I agree with Happy Catholic~ if all they ever do is post a reminder to pray, that would be plenty.
Prayer is one of the best things we can do for each other. It doesn't cost anything but a few minutes of our time. Besides you never know who is praying for you. Pay Oramus a visit.

While you are in prayer mode, please pray for this story I found over at CNA. Not every country is blessed to worship freely as we are (at least for right now).

Pray, hope and don't worry! ~Padre Pio

Closing Prayer

Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King

My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.

Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
