What is required for God to hear our prayers?


Pilgrims praying in St. James Church, Medjugorje

Pilgrims praying in St. James Church in Medjugorje. The climate of prayer in Medjugorje is something that is physically felt. One receives a desire to pray in Medjugorje because it is easy to pray there, everyone else is doing it. It is something that should follow each pilgrim home, long after the “high” of the pilgrimage wears off.

What is required for God to hear our prayers? A Friend of Medjugorje tells us:

“…In order to answer a righteous prayer, God doesn’t need us to bend over backwards to get His attention. He just needs a pure heart…” 1

It is as Our Lady said on March 9, 1985:

“You can receive a grace immediately, or in a month, or in ten years. I do not need The Lord’s Prayer said a hundred or two hundred times. It is better to pray only one, but with a desire to encounter God…”

If one finds themselves waning in prayer, go to Confession, desire to amend one’s heart, and then pray, not only because one wants something from God, but, with a desire to encounter God.
