I was praying for the conversion of a family member when my mom introduced this prayer to me.
This prayer is among the myriads of Catholic prayers in the church and I never knew it existed until today. Or last week rather.
What is the Miracle Prayer?
When I read this prayer, it reminded me a lot of the Sinner’s Prayer (which is usually read by Protestants). The Sinner’s prayer is essentially about acknowledging that they’re a sinner, asking for God’s forgiveness, believing that Jesus died for our sins and rose from then dead, and then promising to turn away from sin, inviting Him into our hearts and then, promising to trust and follow Jesus as their Lord and Saviour.
The Miracle Prayer is almost the same. However, it’s a longer prayer with more details. The prayer is essentially about being sorry of ones sins, repentance, asking for forgiveness, renouncing Satan, inviting Jesus into your life and accepting Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. The prayer also goes on invoking Our Lady’s intercession, the saints and angels in Heaven.
Some Clarification for Our Protestant Friends
For my Protestants brothers and sisters, praying to Our Lady and the saints doesn’t mean that we are worshipping them. We often confuse the word praying for worshipping. But as for Catholics, worship is only meant for God. The meaning of “praying” is “to ask”. Like how we ask our family and friends to pray for us.
As Catholics, we believe that the saints and angels in Heaven are our Heavenly family. They are more alive and closer to Jesus than ever. Asking their intercession is asking them to pray and intercede for us on our behalf and it is an important part of our Catholic faith.
The Miracle Prayer
The prayer goes like this:
Lord Jesus, I come before you, just as I am,
I am sorry for my sins,
I repent of my sins, please forgive me.
In your Name, I forgive all others for what they have done against me.
I renounce Satan, the evil spirits and all their works.
I give you my entire self, Lord Jesus, now and forever.
I invite you into my life, Jesus.
I accept you as my Lord, God and Savior.
Heal me, change me, strengthen me in body, soul, and spirit.
Come Lord Jesus, cover me with your Precious Blood,
and fill me with your Holy Spirit.
I love you Lord Jesus. I praise you Jesus. I thank you Jesus.
I shall follow you every day of my life. Amen.
Mary, My Mother, Queen of Peace, St. Peregrine, the cancer saint,
all the Angels and Saints, please help me. Amen.
Pray the Miracle Prayer with Fr. Peter
The Incredible Story of Healing Through the Miracle Prayer
Let me tell you about Fr. Peter Mary Rookey and his incredible story of healing and the Miracle Prayer.
Peter Mary Rookey was a remarkable individual known for his deep faith and extraordinary healing abilities. He was born in Wisconsin, on October 12, 1916 in a small town in Illinois, and from a young age, he was a devout Catholic and had a great desire to help others. However, his own life took an unexpected turn when he suffered a severe fire-cracker accident that left him completely blind. He was only 9 years old.
Discovery of the Miracle Prayer
Despite the immense challenge he faced, Little Peter didn’t lose hope. Instead, he turned to prayer and faith as a source of strength and healing. In his darkest moments, he discovered a special prayer that he would later become renowned for, known as the Miracle Prayer.
The Miracle Prayer became a significant part of Fr. Peter Rookey’s life and ministry. It was a simple yet powerful prayer that he believed can bring about miraculous healing and blessings. The prayer was a heartfelt plea to God for assistance, asking for divine intervention in times of need.
A Miraculous Healing
During this time, Little Peter made a promise to God that if God regained his sight back, he would become a priest and serve Him whole-heartedly.
As Peter fervently prayed the Miracle Prayer, something truly miraculous happened. His own eyes, which had been robbed of sight, were inexplicably healed. The darkness that had shrouded his world was lifted, and he regained his vision. This incredible healing became a testimony to the power of faith and the effectiveness of the Miracle Prayer. Little Peter regained his sight completely within a year and a half of the accident.
Following his remarkable healing, Fr. Peter dedicated his life to spreading the message of faith, hope, and the power of prayer. He became a Catholic priest and founded the International Compassion Ministry. Through this ministry, he traveled extensively, conducting healing services and sharing the Miracle Prayer with countless individuals seeking solace and healing.
Fr. Peter Rookey’s story touched the lives of many, as he witnessed numerous healing miracles through his ministry. He became widely known as the “Miracle Priest” and was regarded as a living testament to the incredible power of prayer.
Fr. Peter’s journey is a testament to the strength of the human spirit and the boundless possibilities that faith can bring. His personal experience of regaining his sight through the Miracle Prayer serves as a profound inspiration to those facing their own challenges and seeking healing. Through his unwavering faith and dedication to helping others, Fr. Peter M. Rookey left a lasting legacy that continues to impact lives even after his passing in 2014.
