Our Lady’s call to pray for nonbelievers is for an important reason.


Pilgrim praying in Medjugorje

A pilgrim in Medjugorje, pouring out her heart to God in prayer. The measure we pray for those that we love to come to God, is surpassed by Our Lady’s prayer for us and others who are in need of conversion – because Our Lady knows the future.

Medjugorje visionary Mirjana tells of the need to pray for nonbelievers, and why Our Lady says this is important:

“…Our Lady never used that word ‘unbelievers.’ She always says, ‘Those who have not come to know the love of God yet.’ And Our Lady is asking our help. When Our Lady says ‘our’ help, She doesn’t only mean us six visionaries. Our Lady is asking help from all those people who accept Her as Mother. Because Our Lady says we are capable of changing unbelievers. But only with our prayer and our own example. Our Lady asks that we put into our daily prayer, in the first place, our prayer for unbelievers, because Our Lady says that when you pray for them, you pray for yourselves and your own future. Besides our prayers, Our Lady is asking for our example. But Our Lady does not ask for us to preach. She would like from us to talk with our own lives so that unbelievers can see God and God’s love within ourselves. I would like you to accept this in a most serious way, because if you were able to see just once the tears on Our Lady’s face because of unbelievers, I’m sure you would pray from the bottom of your heart…”1

In this month of May, a month dedicated to Our Lady, strive to make Our Lady happy by praying for Her children who have not known the love of God. Pray, from the bottom of your heart for them, and for your own future.
