Response to A Retreatant's Prayer
by: John Walter B. Juat

Thank you my child for answering My call
I long to lavish my love on you and give you my all 
I'm here to strengthen you each time you fall
So that one day you'll be able to stand up tall

I love you unconditionally; I want you to be happy
I want you to choose to love me freely
trust in Me my child; trust in me fully
For I love you, child, as my one and only

Soar high like an eagle above the sky
I long for you to freely fly
Let go of the rotten meat, with it you'll die
It may be difficult, but I'll help as long as you try

I know sometimes you feel like a failure
But don't be discouraged; I love you, that's for sure
To love and to save will always be my nature
Love me, my child, and I'll give you a fruitful future

Carry on with your struggles and persevere
Be assured that your prayers, I truly hear
I am not a distant God, for I am right here
I am also a Loving Father, there's nothing to fear

Though you are blinded by sin, I can regain your sight
Just learn to be humble, don't rely on your own might
Ask for help humbly and you'll win the spiritual fight
Turn to Me, my son, I'll lead you to the light

Love Confession, my child, experience my mercy
For I will never stop forgiving you, no matter the gravity
Just always be sincere, ask for the grace humbly
And I will surely give you joy, peace and serenity

I love you and you are so dear to me
My beloved child, you always will be

A Retreatant's Prayer
by: John Walter B. Juat

My Lord and my God, my Perfect Father,
I wish to spend these days in silent prayer
I want to know you more, divine teacher
Intercede for me, my Blessed Mother

I come to you, Lord God, full of humility
I offer you everything; I want to be empty
I lay down my entire being, even what pleases me
So You can change my heart completely

I come to you Lord, wanting to know your will
Your divine mission, o God, I want to fulfill
Teach me to ponder; teach me to be still
That I may come to understand Your will

For the sins I've committed, Lord I'm heartily sorry
Never allow me again to take sin lightly
Let my contrition be full of sincerity
So You can pour your grace on me abundantly

Increase in me Lord my faith, hope and charity
Cast away my fears, doubts and anxiety
Strengthen my will; deepen my piety
That I may be the best person I can be

There is one thing, Lord, I hope and pray
That I may love You more each day
Make me always imitate your way
And in your presence, make me always stay

In this retreat, Lord, I ask for the special grace
That my life will give you glory and praise
Make me love You until the end of my days
So that I may gaze at You forever face to face
