Come Wrestle in faith with God as Jacob the Holy Patriarch...
Lord and Merciful Father God, increase my trust in your loving grace, so as to experience and manifest the same faith as Holy Patriarch Jacob. Give me the grace O Loving Providence, to wrestle with my day to day challenges. And to wrestle with you in all humility and love for a greater blessing, for a greater anointing promised to those who approach you in loving faithfulness. Dear Merciful Lord Elshaddai, just like Jacob increase my trust so as to reach out hand to hand with you, not as an enemy, but as a loving Father, a Lord of blessing who is always willing to bless us. Increase in me O God of Jacob, a spirit of perseverance, a spirit of tenacity in obtaining from you what is desired for my personal wellbeing as also for the needs of this broken and bruised world. As I enter into this heavenly wresting with your loving hands O Blessed Trinity, let me surrender myself, my family tree, my community, this nation and all that belongs to me completely and without any condition to your divine mercy and kindness. Help me realize dear Lord Jesus, that my entire life is nothing but a long night of struggle and prayer, to be spent in desiring and asking for God’s blessing. Fill me with Hope and Divine Wisdom O Sweet Holy Spirit to realize that the morning rays of joy, peace, happiness and a renewed love is sure to come for those who wrestle with all their heart, with all their might and with all their love with this all Mighty, yet Loving Father God. O God of Jacob, give me victory in my wrestling with the powers of sin and death, with satan and all his evil armies. Give me victory O Lord Elshaddai, as I wrestle with every element of pride, envy, anger, lust, sloth, gluttony and greed with in me. Give me victory O Blood of Jesus Christ, as I wrestle with every power of physical, emotional and mental ailments. Give me victory O Holy Wounds of Jesus Christ, as I wrestle with the spirit of constant failures, diabolical oppression, addictions, fear, worries and anxieties. Give me victory O Holy Cross of Jesus Christ, as I wrestle with the spirit of self-righteousness, selfishness, negativity, sadness, unforgiveness, depression and loneliness. Give me victory O Holy Nails of Jesus Christ, as I wrestle and nail down every curses, occult, black magic and all forms of worship or sacrifice against the Will of God. Give me victory O Pierced and Open Side of Jesus Christ, to fight every arguments and movements against the institution of Family, the Word of God and the Catechism of the Holy Catholic Church. Give me victory O Immaculate Heart of Mary, as I wrestle with every power of doubt, confusion and weak faith. Come dwell in me and work in me O Sweet Holy Spirit, so that at the end of this wrestling match I will win a new name, a new victorious face transformed by His love - the same way as Jacob was transformed to Israel. And May my dwelling place, my family tree, my community, my diocese and this entire nation be filled with your power, O sweet Holy Spirit. As I remember in faith the place where Jacob wrestled, was re-christened as Penuel which means “Face of God”. And now I repeat the prayer of faith of Jacob which he said, before meeting his adversary Esau. I apply these words into my personal situation as I pray - “’O God of my father Abraham and God of my father Isaac, O Lord, who said to me, “Return to your land of inheritance, and I will prosper you,” I am unworthy of all the lovingkindness and of all the faithfulness which you show to me. Deliver me, I pray, from the hand of my adversary, from every person, situation, circumstances standing against my faith and my success. I count on the promise you gave me, “I will surely prosper you, and make your descendants as the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude.” Amen.
Dear St Jacob the Holy Patriarch, please pray for me to obtain the gift of that Holy Daring faith to wrestle with God, as you wrestled all night. Intercede for me O Israel, so as to obtain the grace to cling on to Father God and to proclaim with all boldness, love and humility - "I will not let you go unless you bless me." Give me the gift of divine wisdom, to do whatever it takes to obtain the blessings destined for me and for all around me. I implore your prayers St Jacob, along with St Joseph, the protector of the Holy Catholic Church and Family - for that special grace to be shrewd and cunning as a serpent and innocent as a dove, as taught by Jesus in Mathew Chapter 10: Verse 16, a character trait which you so exemplified. And may the God of Abraham, God of Isaac and God of Jacob, continue to bless his faithful children, each one of us, in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
