Our teammate Jennifer was chatting with a student after Bible Study one week. Somehow in the course of the conversation, the young lady felt really compelled that they should pray a Divine Mercy chaplet together. So the two ladies decided to take a walk on campus, praying the Divine Mercy along the way.
After they finished the prayer, the student asked Jen, “Can we do this every week?”
Every desire to pray is a stirring, a prompting of the Holy Spirit. We know, as the Church tells us in the Cathechism that “at every time and in every place, God draws close to man. He calls man to seek him, to know him, and to love him with all his strength.” Our desire to pray is a sign of God inviting us to draw near to him.
This student heard and responded to this prompting to prayer. Now she and Jennifer are praying a Divine Mercy chaplet on campus after Bible Study every week. And even more than that, they have invited others to join them. There’s now a group of 10+ students meeting each week to pray. Praise God for their response to His call and we pray that the Divine Mercy of God would be on us all.
