The Devotions

Since the very beginning of the Gaithersburg apparitions, God the Father, Jesus, and Mary have emphasized the need for constant prayer to bring ourselves into a closer relationship with them as well as to pray for our brothers and sisters and those who will not pray for themselves but are still loved by God.

The list of devotions they request is extensive and are best implemented at your own pace rather than attempting to start them all at the same time. Our Lady has said repeatedly, “Pray and live the messages on prayer the best you can. That’s all I ask. That’s all that God asks of you, too, that you try your best.” On April 25, 2006, Our Lady gave a few guidelines on compromises in the long list. But the urgent message remains:

 

PRAY! PRAY! PRAY!

 

In the following list, the devotions without parenthesis have been initiated in the messages through Chris Courtis. The devotions (in parenthesis) have been initiated elsewhere but are requested by Jesus and Mary in these messages.
