I pray strategically: I place graces where they will have the greatest effect.
With people destined to be Saints, I make them greater Saints. With rules I concetrate power on them: especially monarchial rulers with some authority.
I still pray for others, but I have found the greatest effect is magnifying the good that already exists. It is like making several Blessed Virgin Marys to assist in my missions.
The most powerful grace is that which brings a happy death (final repentance). This frames the rest of a person’s life. God will never give up on such a person, using even miraculous grace to secure their sanctity.
Sacramentals that promise Final Repentance:
- The Green Scapular gives a “happy death.” This is the most economical (wear the Green Scapular or Scapular Medal, The Prayer: “Immaculate Heart of Mary pray for us now and at the hour of our death”). This is the most economical. http://www.catholictradition.org/Mary/green-scapular4.htm
- The Rosary (commend yourself to the Blessed Virgin for Salvation). https://www.americaneedsfatima.org/The-Holy-Rosary/15-promises-to-those-who-pray-the-rosary.html
- First Fridays: The nine First Fridays of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque. https://www.americaneedsfatima.org/Our-Lord-Jesus-Christ/the-nine-first-fridays-devotion.html
- First Saturdays: The five First Saturdays of Our Lady of Fatima. https://www.americaneedsfatima.org/Our-Blessed-Mother/the-five-first-saturdays-devotion.html
- Brigitine Promises: These fifteen prayers promises being joined to the “supreme choir of angels” (Seraphim), which entails not only a happy death but maximal holiness. http://www.preces-latinae.org/thesaurus/Filius/StBrigid.html
- Any prayer which has approval (or is infallibly revealed, see the Council of Trent, Session 6, Canon 16) and grants a petition (intention) also grants a happy death if that is your intention. These are especially true of Marian prayers (Pope Leo XIII, his encylical On the Rosary).
- RCIA should have the Green Scapular and prayer (which are papally approved by Pope Blessed Pius IX) recited by all their catechumens, if they are willing. If not, the Catechist should do it for them (common priesthood sacrifice – Catechism of the Catholic Church, Paragraph 1547).
All visitors to my website received a holy communion intention, a green scapular common prayer, and a Rosary intention.
The ‘most in need’ receive these and a King of all Nations conversion of faith and heart for three years.
