St. Peter the Apostle Parish at 812 S. Pearl Ave., Joplin, MO 64801-4396 US - Eucharistic Adoration

Eucharistic Adoration

Wednesday                                         9:00am - 9:00pm

"The Eucharist is a priceless treasure;  by not only celebrating it but also by praying before it outside of Mass we are enabled to make contact with the very wellspring of grace."
                                                                                                                     - Pope John Paul II

Jesus said:  "Whoever comes to Me will never hunger, and whoever believes in Me will never thirst"  (Jn 6:35)


"HELPFUL HINTS" to enjoy Eucharistic Adoration:


1.  MEDITATE USING SCRIPTURE - Choose a passage from the Bible and ask God to let the passage speak to you.

(Treasures in Heaven)  "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.  But shore up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and dust do not destroy, and where theives do not break in and steal.  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."  - Matthew 6:19-21

2.  READ ABOUT THE LIFE OF A SAINT AND PRAY WITH HIM OR HER - Most holy men and women have had great devotion to Our Lord in the Eucharist.

3.  POUR OUT YOUR HEART TO CHRIST AND ADORE HIM - Speak to Jesus, aware that you are in His presence, and tell Him all that comes to your mind.

4.  ASK FOR FORGIVENESS AND INTERCEDE FOR OTHERS - Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you who and what He wants you to pray for.  If someone comes to your mind during the day, pray for them.  If you are awakened during the night thinking about a person, pray for them.
                                                                  
HOW DO WE INTERCEDE?
 
There is no set formula for prayer and intercession.  Let the Holy Spirit lead you.  Be quiet, worship God, think of His greatness, expect great things.
"Each time, before you intercede, be quiet first, and worship God in His glory.  Think of what He can do, and how He delights to hear the prayers of His redeemed people.  Think of your place and privilege in Christ, and expect great things!"

5.  SIT QUIETLY AND JUST "BE" IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD - Think of a visit to the Blessed Sacrament as coming to see your best friend.

6.  PRAY THE ROSARY - Ask Mary to join you as you gaze on Christ in the Eucharist and as you pray the Rosary.                                       
HOW TO PRAY THE ROSARY

                                      Make the Sign of the Cross and say the "Apostles' Creed"
                                      Say the "Our Father"
                                      Say three "Hail Mary's"
                                      Say the "Glory be to the Father"
                                      Announce the First Mystery; then say the "Our Father"
                                      Say ten "Hail Mary's" while meditating on the Mystery
                                      Say the "Glory be to the Father"
                                      Announce the Second Mystery; then say the "Our Father"
                                      Repeat 

7.  PRAY THE PSALMS OR THE LITURGY OF THE HOURS - Whether you are praising, givng thanks, asking for forgiveness, or seeking an answer, you'll find an appropriate psalm.
Psalms
Chapter 128

A song of ascents.  Happy are all who fear the LORD, who walk in the ways of God.  What your hands provide you will enjoy;  you will be happy and prosper:  Like a fruitful vine your wife within your home, Like olive plants your children around your table.  Just so will they be blessed who fear the LORD.  May the LORD bless you from Zion, all the days of your life.  That you may share Jerusalem's  joy and live to see your children's children.  Peace upon Israel!

.  RECITE THE "JESUS PRAYER" - Say "Lord Jesus, have mercy on me, a sinner, " repeatedly as you quiet your heart and mind.
                            The Jesus Prayer is one of the oldest of Christian prayers, dating in its original
                            form to the words the two blind men cried out  to Jesus in Matthew 20:31.  It 
                            was formalized by the Orthodox Churches in the 5th century.

                            Contained in the prayer is a uniquely clear summation of Christian faith:
                            Jesus the man is declared by name to be the Christ, the anointed one of God,
                            as well as being the Lord of our lives;  he is declared to be the Son of God,
                            and therefore divine;  he is declared to be in the position of judgement and
                            mercy, and we confess to be sinners requiring His grace.
