Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Sacred Heart of Jesus

Divine Jesus, Thou hast said, "Ask and you shall
receive; seek and you shall find; knock and it shall be
opened to you." Behold me kneeling at Thy feet, filled
with a lively faith and confidence in the promises
dictated by Thy Sacred Heart to Saint Margaret Mary.
I come to ask this favor: (Mention your request).

To whom can I turn if not to Thee, Whose Heart is the
source of all graces and merits? Where should I seek if
not in the treasure which contains all the riches of
Thy kindness and mercy? Where should I knock if not at
the door through which God gives Himself to us and
through which we go to God? I have recourse to Thee,
Heart of Jesus. In Thee I find consolation when
afflicted, protection when persecuted, strength when
burdened with trials, and light in doubt and darkness.

Dear Jesus, I firmly believe that Thou canst grant me the
grace I implore, even though it should require a
miracle. Thou hast only to will it and my prayer will be
granted. I admit that I am most unworthy of Thy
favors, but this is not a reason for me to be discouraged.
Thou art the God of mercy, and Thou wilt not refuse
a contrite heart. Cast upon me a look of mercy,
I beg of Thee, and Thy kind Heart will find in my
miseries and weakness a reason for granting my prayer.

Sacred Heart, whatever may be Thy decision with regard
to my request, I will never stop adoring, loving,
praising, and serving Thee. My Jesus, be pleased to
accept this my act of perfect resignation to the
decrees of Thy adorable Heart, which I sincerely
desire may be fulfilled in and by me and all Thy
creatures forever.

Grant me the grace for which I humbly implore Thee
through the Immaculate Heart of Thy most sorrowful
Mother. You entrusted me to her as her child, and her
prayers are all-powerful with Thee. Amen.


My God, I offer Thee all my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings in union with the Sacred Heart of Jesus, for the intentions for which He pleads and offers Himself in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, in thanksgiving for Thy favors, in reparation for my sins, and in humble supplication for my temporal and eternal welfare, for the needs of our holy Mother the Church, for the conversion of sinners, and for the relief of the poor souls in purgatory.
