19th March - Just 15 Minutes

In this particular period, many of us are forced to slow down and remain at home. This can be a great moment of grace for each and everyone one of us to sit back and spend some time with God in prayer. As we start these daily guided prayer moments, we invite you to find a quiet place, make yourself available for a moment of prayer, to ask yourself some profound questions, and to dialogue with God.

  • Find a suitable place where you can sit and be calm. 
  • Close your eyes for a few moments and listen to the sounds surrounding you, be aware of your posture and make yourself present to enter into a moment of intimacy with Jesus.
  • Make the sign of the cross and remain for a few more moments in silence. TIP: If it helps you to concentrate and to bring yourself before Jesus in prayer, play a song or two of praise. If you do not have any specific song, we suggest this song.

John 6 35:40

Jesus said to them, ‘I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe. Everything that the Father gives me will come to me, and anyone who comes to me I will never drive away; for I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day. This is indeed the will of my Father, that all who see the Son and believe in him may have eternal life; and I will raise them up on the last day.’

    • Try to place yourself in this scenario, as you see Jesus speak these words to you.
      •  ‘I am the bread of life’ – What does this mean to me? Jesus ever present in the most holy eucharist, give me the grace to believe and trust in you even more.
      • Jesus is assuring me that If we choose to draw near, we will not be driven away. Have I kept away from Him because I have felt ashamed? I have felt guilty and unworthy? Jesus is knocking on the door of my heart, will I open? 
    • Ask Jesus for the grace to grow closer to him.
      • What practical things can I do to be in closer intimacy with Jesus daily?
    • Allow a moment of silence and try to listen to what God wants to tell you today. We suggest using a notebook to write some short points. 
      • Jesus, teach me to grow closer to you through the holy Eucharist.
    • Ask Mary to guide you to her son Jesus and intercede for others. Recite a Hail Mary. 
      • What are the requests I wish to bring to God through Mary? For whom will I intercede?
    • Close this moment of prayer by thanking God for this moment of intimacy together. 
      • Grant us Jesus your peace, which will guard our hearts and minds.
    • Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.   – Make the sign of the cross. 

The Rosary will be prayed every day at 5:30pm and live-streamed on TVM2, Newsbook & Church.mt, from the Curia’s chapel. We encourage you all to join us in this prayer. If you have any prayer intentions which you’d like us to pray for, you can write them below. These intentions will be kept in confidence.
