Straight from the Heart – A Prayer Companion

One interesting find during a Holy Week recollection is the book entitled Straight from the Heart – A Prayer Companion compiled and edited by Rev. Fr. Mario Jose C. Ladra. It is published in English and Tagalog versions. What I have in the picture is the Tagalog version.

The book is relevant to this blog’s content because an  orasyon is essentially a prayer. A condensed form of prayer, if you may.

The testimonies attesting to the efficacy of the prayers in the book are impressive. Here are some (culled from a brochure promoting the book):

“I was diagnosed of Follicular Cancer (Thyroid) stage 4. I had been bed-ridden for 2 months and lost my hair. I underwent Radiation Therapy several times. But I have a strong faith in God. By using Straight from the Heart and praying most especially the healing prayers there and the Miracle Prayer, Page 30, I was healed by God. sincere prayer really works. Nothing is impossible to God.” (Lyn M. Lina, Cancer Survivor, Bulacan)

“I have experienced a lot of trials when I was applying for a job in Saudi Arabia, emotionally and financially. But by praying “The Miracle Prayer” on page 30 and attending the Healing Mass in San Lorenzo Ruiz Church, God truly helped me and answered my prayers. I am now here in Saudi with a fine job.” (Mark Billones, Jr., OFW, Saudi Arabia)

“Simula nang gamitin ng aking pamilya ang STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART  noong 2007, lalo kaming naging malapit sa Diyos at nagbago ang takbo ng aming buhay. Natanggap ako sa pagiging SEAMAN, naiwasan ko ang aking mga bisyo, gumaling ang aking skin allergy, nabayaran namin ang utang sa bahay at napag-aaral ang tatlo naming anak. Tunay na napakabisa ng mga panalangin sa aklat na ito. Purihin ang Diyos!” (Angelito Nunez, Seaman, Blue Manila, Inc)

The orasyon you may be looking for does not have to be in an esoteric book store or with a shaman in some remote location. You may find it in this book. It contains prayers addressed to God, archangels, and saints dealing with just any aspect of your life that you might want to pray for. Here are some random samples from the Tagalog version:

Panalangin para Makabayad ng Utang

Panalangin ng Isang Naghahanap ng Trabaho

Panalangin ng Isang Nanliligaw

Oratio Imperata – Panalangin para Ipag-adya sa mga Kalamidad

Ang Mapaghimalang Panalangin

The book comes relatively cheap at Php180.00.

    sa lahat po ng tumatangkilik sa straight from the heart ipagpatuloy nyo lang po at doon sa mga hindi po maari nyo itong subukan at tangkilikin gaya ko.Simula po kasi nang nagkaroon ako ng straight from the heart book napakarami ko na pong mga answered prayer mula kay lord. Lalo na po ngayun na nandito ako sa ibang bansa. Pati ung mga bagay na hindi ko inaasahan ipinagkakaloob nya sa akin.Basta’t manalig lng po tayo at mag tiwala sa diyos kasabay ang mga panalangin na nasa librong ito. Hindi nya tayo pababayaan.kaya nga po sobrang nagpapasalamat ako kay Fr. Mario Jose C Ladra na may akda sa librong ito.
