Petition


如果我們把東西借給人,當我們需要那東西時,就會不斷地催迫那人儘快交還。若那人尚未交換,我們就會不斷地催迫,一直地催迫,直到那人交還為止。
If we lend something to other people, when we need the thing back, we will unceasingly ask him to return the thing as soon as possible. If he not yet returns, we will urge and urge until he returns the thing.

但若我們的祈禱,也能有這種毅力,不斷地祈求,必會得到所求的。然而,我們不會這樣地祈求天父。因為我們沒有把任何東西借給天父。天父亦不欠我們任何東西,而且需要幫忙的是我們。另外,我們也不敢這樣祈求天主聖父。因為,我們知道自己是罪人。這是理所當然的,我們本來就應該要承認自己的罪過。因此,我們若真的有所求,就必須先向天父認罪,並求天父寬恕。為求天主寬恕,自己就應當先寬恕別人。之後,就祈求天主。
If we pray with the persistence like this, we should get whatever we ask. However, we will not pray like this to the Father. This is because we do not lend anything to the Father. And the Father doesn’t owe us anything. Even more, we are the ones who need the help. Besides that, we are not dare to pray like this to the Father. Because, we know that we are sinners. Of course, we should confess our sins. Therefore, if we really have petitions, we need to confess our sins to the Father first, and ask for forgiveness. To ask for forgiveness, we need to forgive others. Then, we can ask from God.

並且,為避免良心的責問而影響信德,我們應當定改。
Even more, to avoid the condemnation of our conscience which will affect our faith, we need conversion.
