Prayers and Litany to the Sacred Heart

OFFERING TO THE SACRED HEART

My loving Savior,
consume my heart in that burning love
with which your own Heart is inflamed.
Pour out upon me those graces
which flow from your love.
Let my heart be so united with yours
that our wills may be one,
and my will may in all things
be conformed with your will.
May your will be the guide and rule
of my desires and of my actions. Amen.



PRAYER FOR THOSE IN NEED

Lord Jesus Christ,
your Heart still cherishes all the redeemed
and is moved to pity for every human need.
Aware of your invitation, "Come to Me,"
we pray for the afflicted, the sick, the confused,
for all broken hearts, and shattered lives.
We bring to you all their material, emotional, and spiritual needs
as well as our own.
By the love that led you to take flesh of the Virgin Mary,
we pray that you might enfold us all in your merciful love
heal our wounds
and grant us what accords with your holy will.


DEDICATION TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS

Most kind Jesus,
Redeemer of the human race,
look down upon us
humbly prostrate before you.
We are yours, and yours we wish to be;
but to be more surely united with you,
each one of us freely consecrates himself today
to your Most Sacred Heart.

Many indeed have never known you;
many, too, despising your precepts,
have rejected you.
Have mercy on them all, most merciful Jesus,
and draw them to your Sacred Heart.

Be King, O Lord,
not only of the faithful
who have never forsaken you,
but also of the prodigal children
who have abandoned you;
Grant that they may quickly return to their Father's house,
lest they die of wretchedness and hunger.

Be King of those who are deceived by erroneous opinions,
 or whom discord keeps aloof,
and call them back
to the harbor of truth and the unity of faith,
so that soon there may be
but one flock and one Shepherd.

Grant, O Lord, to your Church
assurance of freedom and immunity from harm;
give tranquility of order to all nations;
make the earth resound from pole to pole with one cry:
Praise to the divine Heart that wrought our salvation;
to It be glory and honor for ever. Amen.
