IV. THE PRAYER OF ABANDONMENT
To pray together in the Community of Charity Services of the Blessed
At the beginning, Mother Mary asked her children to gather and pray together
every Monday morning. As the request of Mother Mary, the Prayer of Abandonment
to God became a monthly prayer until December 22nd, 1995. Again, in January
1996 as the request of Mother Mary, the activity of the prayer was changed
into a Novena prayer activity. Along the year 1996, there were 9 times
of Novena prayer activities, whose times were determined by Mother Mary
herself. Besides the timely Novena prayers, as determined by Mother Mary,
routine prayers were also conducted in groups, which were spreading everywhere.
Out of Novena prayer activities, Lord Jesus was present and conveyed
the messages, whereas Mother Mary was also present through the Power
of God to convey the messages as well. In the prayer meetings, Lord Jesus
often extended His personal touch to each person who joined in through
At the beginning of 1995, the prayer meeting was usually begun
by the Rosary. Since September 1997, at the beginning and at
the end of Novena
prayer activities a Eucharist celebration and/or Rosary prayer were/was
conducted. When there was no Eucharist celebration, the prayer meeting
was conducted in the form of Word Celebration, which began with the
reading of the Holy Book, homily, to read the previous messages
by Lord Jesus
and Mother Mary (when Agnes was not present at the praying meeting)
and to pray together. The people exchanged each other the sign
of peace in
the closing of the prayer meeting as Mother Mary requested.
of Charity Services of the Blessed Mother had got the teaching of
the prayers from Mother Mary. That was the Litany of
Lord Jesus, which was usually prayed as the beginning of the prayer
of the faithful, and the silent prayer, presented before God. This
began with singing: ”Come O Holly Spirit’. The Litany
closed with The Prayer Of Abandonment to God as Mother Mary conveyed,
to Her children in Indonesia. She had been practicing since she
was still a young child.
The PRAYER OF ABANDONMENT TO GOD
Litany of Abandonment to God:
Lord Jesus, enlighten our hearts and minds by Your Holy Spirit
Lord Jesus, teach us to be patient when we pray
Lord Jesus, teach us to pray well
Lord Jesus, teach us to have more faith in You
Lord Jesus, teach us to be more abandoned to You
Lord Jesus, we pray for Your blessing
Lord Jesus, we pray for Your grace
Lord Jesus, we pray for Your mercy
Lord Jesus, we pray for Your forgiveness
Lord Jesus, teach us to have the will to love our neighbors
Lord Jesus, teach us to have the will to forgive our neighbors
Lord Jesus, we long for You
Lord Jesus, we love You
Lord Jesus, come to us, we welcome You
Lord Jesus, we abandon to You :
O” Lord Almighty, at this moment, I commend my spirit to You
For the earth belongs to You, and I am Your creation”
(Said three times) - Amen.
This Prayer of Abandonment to God was taught by Mother Mary for the first
time in the first Novena Prayers in 1996, the 7th day of January 19th,1996.
It was also a sign of uniting the relationship between God and His
children. The Prayer of Abandonment to God was given by Mother Mary
to her children in Indonesia and to accompany them to return to God
wholly and readiness to face the coming day.
“I have been teaching you The Prayer of Abandonment to God; because
in the past I was living in true abandonment. I have been teaching you
to deliver your heart and soul wholly to my Son. You will be happy” (Message
Unite the prayer I have given to you, and you will be ready to face the
day to come down to the earth”. (Message Feb. 23rd, 2000)
In the Novena prayer on January 15th,1999, Mother Mary requested to spread
The Prayer of Abandonment to God to the entire country. With all her
humble heart Mother Mary added this prayer to other prayers that had
existed before (not to replace other prayers).
Unite this prayer into your previous prayers that has existed before
and pray it personally, within the family or in the community. This prayer
is full of graces and blessings, love and affection to strengthen your
life journey. Deliver this prayer that I have given to you to everyone.
Do it my children, carry out to the entire country” (Message January
And Mother Mary also taught us a praising prayer to greet Her:
Mary, full of Grace, the Lord is with thee,
Blessed art thou among women, and blessed art thou, now and forever”
(Said three times) - Amen”.
This is the prayer that was given to unite Mother Mary and her children,
while the Litany of Abandonment to God was formed in a growing process
guided by the Holy spirit and the teaching of Mother Mary. She taught
us that whenever we want to pray to God, kindly begin by asking Jesus
to teach us to pray well as all the apostles did.
Mother Mary suggested to add a special short prayer which she taught
in Fatima after every ten of Greeting to Mother Mary in Rosary prayer:
Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fire of hell.
Lead all souls to heaven
especially those who have most need of Your mercy.
Mother Mary promised to be present at the moments her children are gathering
and praying in the union with the Community of Charity Services of the
Blessed Mother every where eventhough Agnes was not present.
Agnes is not present, so that no messages are given, people can read
those previous messages and be able to feel the touch of Lord Jesus
and Mother Mary’s spirit through their hearts.
