Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

 

OPENING PRAYER:

Loving Father, we thank you for the many gifts and blessings bestowed upon us. We thank you most of all for your Son Jesus, who leads us on the path of fullness of life, freedom and love. Who cares for us when we are lost, who reaches out his hand when we stumble, who comforts us in our sorrows. May we be drawn closer to his love and bring all humankind into his kingdom of love, justice and peace.

 

Day One

LOVE THAT IS TOTAL AND UNCONDITIONAL

Loving heart of Jesus, I consecrate my life to you, my words, deeds, joys and sufferings, so that my whole being is for your honour and glory. Give me the grace to make you the center of my love, the guardian of my life, the assurance of my salvation and the sure refuge at my death. May my love for you and for others be more and more unconditional. (Make your petition)

 

Day Two 

LOVE THAT IS SENSITIVE AND RESPONSIVE

O Heart of Jesus, I offer you these prayers or those who unite themselves with me to adore and worship you. Open my eyes and ears so that I become more sensitive to those in need and respond to them lovingly, I recommend to you, Lord, the Holy Church, your Spouse and our Mother and especially pray for unity among the various churches. Heart of Jesus, bless our homes. (Make your petition)

 

Day Three 

LOVE THAT IS UNIVERSAL, EMBRACING ALL

Lord Jesus, you never refuse your love to anyone. How can I refuse to give you my love? Everything I have is yours. Teach me to overcome my selfish interests so as to be more available for your service. O loving heart of Jesus, inflame my heart with love for you and others. (Make your petition)

 

Day Four 

LOVE THAT IS PERSEVERING, ENDURING TO THE END

Lord Jesus Christ, you showed the depth of your love for us by your death on the cross. Yes Lord, truly your love ‘bears all things, believes all things, endures all things’. May our love for others be persevering and enduring especially in times of trouble and pain. Most Sacred Heart of Jesus I place my trust in you. (Make your petition)

 

Day Five 

LOVE THAT UNITES AND BINDS TOGETHER IN COMMUNITY

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, you revealed to St. Margaret Mary your desire to rule over Christian families. Behold, we stand before you this day to proclaim your full sovereignty over our family. Be King, O Lord, not only of the faithful but also of those who have gone away from you. May your love bind us together in community with cords that cannot be broken. Lord, open our minds and hearts to accept your love. Heart of Jesus, bless and unite our homes. (Make your petition)

 

Day Six 

LOVE THAT IS ACTIVE, PRACTICAL AND EFFICACIOUS

Heart of Jesus, I cast all my cares upon you. I want to persevere in my trust in you to the last moment of my life. No one who has placed his faith in you has ever been disappointed. With you by my side nothing is impossible. Heart of Jesus help and strengthen my weak faith. (Make your petition)

 

Day Seven 

LOVE THAT IS PATIENT AND FORGIVING

Most loving heart of Jesus, I wish everything of mine to be yours – my freedom, my memory, my understanding, my will. Give me your love and your grace, Lord, so that I express my life in little acts of self-denial and loving service in my daily tasks. Give me the courage to forgive anyone who injures or hurts me. I desire to spend my life in collaborating for the spread of your kingdom in my own small way. (Make your petition)

 

Day Eight 

LOVE THAT REACHES OUT TO THE POOR AND NEEDY

Lord Jesus Christ, in union with the Immaculate Heart of Mary, we gather today in your name. Be with us now and always, Lord, as the centre of our life. Watch over us your people.

Day Nine 

LOVE THAT BRINGS PEACE AND JOY

Lord Jesus, our friend and Saviour look upon us as we place our life in your hands. In times of trial and sorrow help is to draw courage and hope from your cross and resurrection. Bless all our efforts and endeavours. Fill our life with peace and joy that comes from your love – Heart of Jesus our peace and our joy. (Make your petition)

 

CLOSING PRAYER:

God, our Father, we glory in the Heart of Jesus, your beloved Son, as we call to mind the great things His love has done for us, May our devotion to His Heart open our hearts to the struggles of people around us. Give us His sensitivity of heart and mind. Unite us so intimately with him, that we may love Him and each other with the same love. We ask this through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
