Exhortations to Prayer

Also See: Catholic Prayer (Topic Page)

"Watch and pray that you may not undergo the test. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak." (Our Lord Jesus Christ, Mt. 26:41)

"Watch and pray that you may not undergo the test. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak." (Our Lord Jesus Christ, Mk. 14:38)

"Be vigilant at all times and pray that you have the strength to escape the tribulations that are imminent and to stand before the Son of Man." (Our Lord Jesus Christ, Lk. 21:36)

"When [Jesus] arrived at the place he said to them, 'Pray that you may not undergo the test.'" (Lk. 22:40)

"[Jesus] said to them, 'Why are you sleeping? Get up and pray that you may not undergo the test.'" (Lk. 22:46)

"The end of all things is at hand. Therefore, be serious and sober for prayers." (St. Peter, 1 Pt. 4:7)

"With all prayer and supplication, pray at every opportunity in the Spirit. To that end, be watchful with all perseverance and supplication for all the holy ones" (St. Paul, Eph. 6:18)

"Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God." (St. Paul, Phil 4:6)

"Pray without ceasing." (St. Paul, 1 Thes. 5:17)

"It is my wish, then, that in every place the men should pray, lifting up holy hands, without anger or argument." (St. Paul, 1 Tm. 2:8)

"Is anyone among you suffering? He should pray. Is anyone in good spirits? He should sing praise. Is anyone among you sick? He should summon the presbyters of the church, and they should pray over him and anoint (him) with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The fervent prayer of a righteous person is very powerful." (St. James, Jms. 5:13-16)

"But you, beloved, build yourselves up in your most holy faith; pray in the Holy Spirit." (St. Jude, 1:20)

"Above all I recommend to you always, recollection, that holy solitude, that inner sacred desert in which your soul ought always to be alone in the bosom of the heavenly Father, in the silence of faith and holy love." (St. Paul of the Cross)

"If He who was without sin prayed, how much more ought sinners to pray?" (St. Cyprian of Carthage)

"Do nothing at all unless you begin with prayer." (St. Ephraem the Syrian, Doctor of the Church)

"May prayer be our refuge in every necessity, and penance our safeguard against sin." (Gueranger)

"Undertake nothing without prayer."

"Pray, pray, pray; prayer is the key to the treasures of God. It is the weapon of combat and of victory in every battle for good over evil." (Pope Pius XII)

"The more a man is deficient in wisdom, weak in strength, borne down with trouble, prone to sin, so ought he the more to fly to Him who is the never-ceasing fount of light, strength, consolation, and holiness." (Pope Leo XIII, "Divinum Illud Munus", 1897)

"The spiritual life, however, is not limited solely to participation in the liturgy. The Christian is indeed called to pray with others, but he must also enter into his bedroom to pray to his Father in secret; furthermore, according to the teaching of the apostle, he must pray without ceasing." (Second Vatican Council)

"Redouble your prayers so that God might be with you in a greater abundance of grace, fighting and triumphing with you. Accompany your prayers with the practice of the Christian virtues, especially charity toward the needy. Seek God's mercies with humility and perseverance, renewing every day the promises of your baptism." (Pope Leo XIII, "Custodi Di Quella Fede", 1892)

"We beseech all again and again not to yield to the deceits of the old enemy, nor for any cause whatsoever to cease from the duty of prayer. Let their prayers be persevering, let them pray without intermission; let their first care be to supplicate for the sovereign good - the eternal salvation of the whole world, and the safety of the Church. Then they may ask from God other benefits for the use and comfort of life, returning thanks always, whether their desires are granted or refused, as to a most indulgent father. Finally, may they converse with God with the greatest piety and devotion according to the example of the Saints, and that of our Most Holy Master and Redeemer, with great cries and tears." (Pope Leo XIII, "Octobri Mense", 1891)

"Our fatherly solicitude urges Us to implore of God, the Giver of all good gifts, not merely the spirit of prayer, but also that of holy penance for all the sons of the Church. And whilst We make this most earnest supplication, We exhort all and each one to the practice with equal fervor of both these virtues combined. Thus prayer fortifies the soul, makes it strong for noble endeavors, leads it up to divine things: penance enables us to overcome ourselves, especially our bodies - most inveterate enemies of reason and the evangelical law. And it is very clear that these virtues unite well with each other, assist each other mutually, and have the same object, namely, to detach man born for heaven from perishable objects, and to raise him up to heavenly commerce with God. On the other hand, the mind that is excited by passions and enervated by pleasure is insensible to the delights of heavenly things, and makes cold and neglectful prayers quite unworthy of being accepted by God. We have before Our eyes examples of the penance of holy men whose prayers and supplications were consequently most pleasing to God, and even obtained miracles. They governed and kept assiduously in subjection their minds and hearts and wills. They accepted with the greatest joy and humility the doctrines of Christ and the teachings of His Church. Their unique desire was to advance in the science of God; nor had their actions any other object than the increase of His glory." (Pope Leo XIII, "Octobri Mense", 1891)
