I am having some disturbances ... Please, set me free Father. My thoughts keep changing and good thoughts are vanishing even from 3.5 years. Because I was struggling so much, I asked 1 brother to pray for me and he said, God is telling him, she is "All lies from the very beginning". It is difficult to get help in India ... Please, help me Father but I feel these days charismatic preachers are lying prophets, false prophets in India.

For the conversion of the people of Russia and their descendants and for the conversion of Russian current and future leaders until the end of time. For the end of war in Russia forever. For God's peace to reign in Russia forever. For the conversion of people of nations that is involved with war in Russia forever, especially Ukraine, also for the conversion of allies of Russia forever, especially North Korea and China. To consecrate Russia to Immaculate Heart of Mary forever, and to offer communions of reparation on the first Saturdays forever. To fulfill the Blessed Virgin Mary's requests so that Russia will be converted and so that there will be peace forever. So that Russia will not spread her errors throughout the world, fomenting wars and persecution of the Church forever. So that the good will not suffer martyrdom; the Holy Father will not suffer much; so that different nations will not be annihilated because of this forever. I offer this Mass and all the Masses offered around the world today until the end of the world for this intention forever. For salvation of souls in Russia until the end of ages.
