Consecration To The Immaculate Heart Of Mary # 2

O Mary,
Virgin most powerful and Mother of mercy,
Queen of Heaven and Refuge of sinners,
we consecrate ourselves to thine Immaculate Heart.

We consecrate to thee our very being and our whole life;
all that we have,
all that we love,
all that we are.

To thee we give our bodies,
our hearts and our souls;
to thee we give our homes,
our families, our country.

We desire that all that is in us
and around us may belong to thee,
and may share in the benefits of thy motherly benediction.

And that this act of consecration
may be truly efficacious and lasting,
we renew this day at thy feet the promises
of our Baptism and our first Holy Communion.

We pledge ourselves to profess courageously
and at all times the truths of our holy Faith,
and to live as befits Catholics
who are duly submissive to all the directions
of the Pope and the Bishops in communion with him.

We pledge ourselves to keep the commandments
of God and His Church,
in particular to keep holy the Lord’s Day.

We likewise pledge ourselves
to make the consoling practices of the Christian religion,
and above all, Holy Communion,
an integral part of our lives,
in so far as we shall be able so to do.

Finally, we promise thee,
O glorious Mother of God and loving Mother of men,
to devote ourselves whole-heartedly
to the service of thy blessed cult,
in order to hasten and assure,
through the sovereignty of thine Immaculate Heart,
the coming of the kingdom of the Sacred Heart of thine adorable Son,
in our own hearts and in those of all men,
in our country and in all the world,
as in heaven,
so on earth.

Amen.

What is prayer?

Prayer is the lifting up of our minds and hearts to God.

Let us lift up our hearts with our hands to the Lord in the heavens. (Lamentations 3:41)

How do we know that God always hears our prayers if we pray properly?

We know that God always hears our prayers if we pray properly because Our Lord has promised: “If you ask the Father anything in My name, He will give it to you.”

And whatever you ask in my name, that I will do, in order that the Father may be glorified in the Son. (John 14:13)

Why do we not always obtain what we pray for?

We do not always obtain what we pray for, either because we have not prayed properly or because God sees that what we are asking would not be for our good.

You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it upon your passions. (James 4:3)

Prayer from the Baltimore Catechism
