Pray by Sanctus Real

“Pray” (lyrics)

I bow my head to pray, I don’t know what to say
I’m not sure how to fix the things I’m dealing with
I’m in a desperate place, I need to share the weight
But I just don’t know how, to let it all pour out
Though I’m silent, my heart is crying
Cause I was made to come to You

Chorus 1:
So I pray
God I need You more than words can say
Right here in this moment
You know my heart, You know my need
You know every part of me
So even if it’s just to speak Your name
I’m gonna pray

I failed to find the time, but You’ve been calling out
I let the days go by as if I could live without
But it’s gotta be here now, I won’t be pulled away
Cause it’s just You and I, so let the world around us fade

Chorus 2:

As I pray
God I need You more than words can say
Right here in this moment
You know my heart, You know my need
You know every part of me
So even if it’s just to speak Your name
I’m gonna pray
I’m gonna pray

(Father)
Will You meet me here right now?
(Father)
I surrender, lay it down
(Father)
And every time I close my eyes
I know that I was made
To lift my hands and pray
I lift my hands and pray

You know my heart, You know my need
And every single part of me
So even if it’s just to speak Your name
I’m gonna pray
I’m gonna pray

You know my heart, You know my need
You know every part of me
More than words, You are my life
Take it as an offering

Prayer to St. Joseph

Prayer to St. Joseph

The Eight Promises of St. Joseph

1. God will grant special graces to those that do not know me, to have a great devotion to me.
2. God will bless all who are married and the blessing in their family will be without limit.
3. Those married and without children will be blessed with offspring.
4. God will give special graces to be delivered from temptations and the attacks of the devil.
5. They shall have a good and happy death.
6. They shall overcome their trials and tribulations.
7. God shall grant them immediate help when they invoke my intercession, for the demons have extreme dread of the invocation of my name.
8. For all those who embrace a St. Joseph cenacle, they shall obtain a more fervent love for Jesus and a true devotion to Most Holy Mary.

Let us pray, (Prayer to Saint Joseph)

Blessed Joseph, husband of Mary, be with us this day. You protected and cherished the Virgin; loving the Child Jesus as your son, you rescued Him from danger of death. Defend the Church, the household of God, purchased by the blood of Christ.

Guardian of the Holy Family, be with us in our trials. May your prayers obtain for us the strength to flee from error and wrestle with the powers of corruption so that in life we may grow in holiness and in death rejoice in the crown of victory. Amen.

Happy Birthday to Me! :)

I thank God for 27 beautiful years of my life. And my party yesterday was a blast! πŸ™‚

Now let me tell you what makes my birthday awesome:

1. Home is where the heart is.

I got to spend my birthday with dear family and friends. πŸ™‚ I miss having traditional birthday parties at home and true enough my family throw a seventh birthday party theme just for me. Imagine waking up and seeing nemo, hello kitty, ben10, batman, spongebob and minions all over the place. Crazy but we had so much fun. πŸ˜€

I started my day praying the rosary and offering my 27 years of existence to God. Thank you Lord for all the wonderful blessings that you’ve given me and most especially for making me see how beautiful it is to really live life to the fullest. Thank you Mama Mary for always being at my side and for being the best role model, I love you!

3. Total Pig-out.

My whole family loves to cook (except for me :P) and they make the most delicious food ever. It’s true! We can even start a restaurant or any food business if we like. And since the prodigal daughter came back haha they’ve prepared a feast that made everyone gaga for more.

4. Love me Do.

I love The Beatles, my dad and I used to listen to their music. This band and the songs they’ve written will live on forever. That’s why I cannot contain my excitement when I received this special cake. (refer to my photo – Isn’t it cool? yeah, yeah, yeah…) Thank you John, Paul, George and Ringo for making my day extra special and thank you for the roses too. I love you guys so much haha πŸ˜€

Thank you for remembering my birthday! To all who greeted me – I LOVE YOU ALL!!! πŸ™‚

My 27th Birthday will always be a special one. This is my last birthday as a single lady haha πŸ˜€ Soon I’ll marry the man of my dreams. (*whew! there I said it! ;)) Thank you Lord for everything, thank you for 27 years of experiencing your faithfulness and for loving me then until now. You are my promise-keeper and I long for your plans to happen in my life.

Birthdays are special. There’s always a reason to celebrate your birthday. Cause when you do, you feel loved.

Happiness? It’s more of pure joy. Let us appreciate God’s greatest blessing – Cheers to life!

A Life in Light

Prayer Works

No darkness can resist even the smallest lit candle.

When we pray to God, we reflect His goodness. We too emit a certain kind of radiance which heals and gives comfort.

As we offer a simple prayer to the Lord today, ask Him to give you the ability to shine for Him.

“A life with Jesus is a life in light.”

Praying to the Lord will not just give you a fresh new perspective everyday, it will mold you to be your best self.

Remember that there is power in prayer. And if you believe and start practicing the art of having a personal prayer time, it will definitely change you.

Enjoy the blessing of this brand new day and let God light up your life!

Whatever You’re Doing (Something Heavenly) by Sanctus Real

“Whatever You’re Doing” (Something Heavenly) lyrics

It’s time for healing time to move on
It’s time to fix what’s been broken too long
Time make right what has been wrong
It’s time to find my way to where I belong
There’s a wave that’s crashing over me
All I can do is surrender

Chorus:

Whatever you’re doing inside of me
It feels like chaos somehow there’s peace
It’s hard to surrender to what I can’t see
but I’m giving in to something heavenly

Time for a milestone
Time to begin again
Revaluate who I really am
Am I doing everything to follow your will
or just climbing aimlessly over these hills
So show me what it is you want from me
I give everything I surrender…

to…

(Repeat Chorus)

Time to face up
Clean this old house
Time to breathe in and let everything out
That I’ve wanted to say for so many years
Time to to release all my held back tears

Whatever you’re doing inside of me
It feels like chaos but I believe
You’re up to something bigger than me
Larger than life something heavenly

Whatever you’re doing inside of me
It feels like chaos but now I can see
This something bigger than me
Larger than life something heavenly
Something heavenly

It’s time to face up
Clean this old house
Time breathe in and let everything out
