Abba, Father! Prayer

 

God the Father, you are our Father and the Heavenly Father of all humanity. With humility and deep gratitude, we prostrate ourselves before Your face, to entrust and fully consecrate to You ourselves, our life, our work, and our affection.

We wish each day to know and love You more, and receive more blessings from Your kindness and benevolence, for us to share them with others.

We pray that You grant us this great grace: to have more love for the most compassionate Heart of Jesus, Your beloved Son, in unity of the Holy Spirit, for us to forever praise Your infinite mercy.

Mother Mary, the Heavenly Father’s Beloved Daughter and our Merciful Mother, please pray for us. Amen.


 “Abba, Father!”

 

God’s title of “Abba” is found referenced in the New Testament three times, in the passages of Mark 14:36, Romans 8:15-17, and Galatians 4:6. Only two persons mention these words in these passages: Jesus and the Apostle Paul.

 Sing alleluia to the Lord !

 While all the names of God are important in many ways, the term “Abba” is one of the most significant names because it describes the intimacy between God and mankind. The word “Abba” is Aramaic and means “father.” It was a common term that expressed affection and confidence and trust. Abba signifies the close, intimate relationship of a father and his child, like the trust that a child puts in his father.

 Mark 14:36

 And he said, “Abba, Father, all things are possible to you; remove this cup from me; yet not what I will, but what you will.”

Romans 8:15-17

 For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the spirit of sonship. When we cry, “Abba! Father!” it is the Spirit himself bearing witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him. 

 Galatians 4:6

 And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!”

When Jesus taught His disciples to pray, He began with the words “Our Father.” There is much spiritual affection in those two words. The holy and righteous God, who created and sustains all things in the heavens and on the earth – the all-powerful, ever-present, and all-knowing: He not only allows us but encourages us to call Him “Abba, Father.” His love is abundant, so He loves us profusely and He wants us to reciprocate His love.

It is truly a privilege for us. It is truly a grace that God would love us to the point that He desires to come to us physically rather than invisibly, but it is not the time for that to happen yet. Jesus sacrificed His Body on Calvary to save us. He came and left so that the Holy Spirit would dwell in us to pour a myriad of graces on us and prompt our cry of “Abba, Father!” 

Abba, Father! Please protect and enlighten our common father on earth, Pope Francis, so that he leads and revitalizes the Church according to Your will.


Who Is the Father of All Humanity?

“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all” (2 Cor 13:14).

 

Most Christians do not have a clear and strong sense that they have a Father. When reading “God,” many people think of a powerful, respectable and fearful One. They do not dare to call Him “Father.” Fewer Catholics think that the Almighty really has a very dear and real Father’s heart so that they should live with the Father in that loving relationship. 

Most prayers at Mass are offered to God the Father. And although every day we pray to God with the Lord’s Prayer, we often do not have a genuine, loving and passionate relationship with our Father who is in heaven. 

In this age when many people’s hearts are so cold, God the Heavenly Father calls us to open our hearts to His unending love, and to know that He Himself will fulfill our deepest dreams and heal us from living in fear and doubt. 

“See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God’s children now; it does not yet appear what we shall be, but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is” (1 John 3:1-2). 

St. John’s words make it clear: God, the Father, who loves mankind in a special way, has transformed us into His adopted children through Jesus Christ. He looks at us, not with stern eyes, but with the loving eyes of a Father. The Father has infinite fatherhood, transcending all human emotions.

In the messages from God the Father revealed through messenger Lucia Phan, a Vietnamese-American, He expressed His desire that we know and love Him. 

Unfortunately, very few of the God the Father’s children are aware of that immense love. Many people do not know God as their Father. Small numbers have some sense of the Heavenly Father, but He seeks more than awareness on a rational level – His desire is that mankind loves Him with all his heart. 

Please visit our websites: EucharisticJesus.net and EucharisticJesus.faith to immerse yourself in the intimate Father-child relationship between God the Father and humanity through His messages given in this last era of history. 

We hope you get a chance to experience the Father’s desires and yearn for His Heart, which is open wide to embrace you so that you develop your true love for the Father.


Night Prayer to Almighty God

Father of all Humanity

God the Father, the Father of all mankind, I am a weak and humble person. When I was living in passion and sin You chose me, brought me back to save me, and cherished me in Your boundless love.

You also give me the greatest gift – to be Your child – and all mankind is my sister and my brother in Your great family.

You even sent Your beloved Son, Jesus Christ, so that He would die to bear the sins on behalf of mankind, and there is nothing that You will keep, will not give us.

Please allow me to live in gratitude for You. Please guide and strengthen me, for me to be on the path You choose for the rest of my life. Please open my soul to understand the love You have for me. Please open my heart to treasure the affection You gave me.

If without Your protection, then I easily sin and offend You. Please guide me according to Your way. I entrust my soul and body into Your hands.

We pray in the Name of Jesus Christ, Your Son and our Brother, the almighty and reigning God, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, forever and ever. Amen.
