Prayer #2: The Prayer of Jesus (The Unity Prayer)
By virtue of the great outpouring of grace in the Flame of Love movement, it is a rocket ride to sanctity. Following the way of life described in the devotion quickly moves one to deep union with Jesus as we literally participate in His life. One of the few additions introduced by the Flame of Love devotion is Jesus’ Unity Prayer:
Then the sweet Redeemer asked me to pray with Him the prayer that expresses His deepest desires:
“I made this prayer completely mine. The Lord meditated on it many times with me, asserting that these are His eternal longings. He taught me this prayer, so that I would in turn teach it to others. With all our strength and mind, let us make our own His eternal thoughts and burning desires.”
Jesus: “This prayer is an instrument in your hands. By collaborating with Me, Satan will be blinded by it; and because of his blindness, souls will not be led into sin.”
The prayer includes every aspect of the human person, caught up by Jesus, to fulfill the Father’s plan. True spirituality is not just you trying to do God’s will, but you allowing Jesus, living in you by grace, to do God’s will.
Jesus said, “Through this prayer, Satan will be blind and souls will not be led into sin. ( p.25 ) The Lord explained, “Satan being blind signifies a worldwide triumph of my Sacred Heart, the freedom of souls and a full opening of the road of salvation.” (p. 87)
