Consecration To The Sacred Heart Of Jesus # 4

O Sacred Heart of Jesus,
to Thee I consecrate and offer up my person and my life,
my actions, trials, and sufferings,
that my entire being may henceforth only be employed in loving,
honouring and glorifying Thee.
This is my irrevocable will,
to belong entirely to Thee,
and to do all for Thy love,
renouncing with my whole heart all that can displease Thee.

I take Thee, O Sacred Heart,
for the sole object of my love,
the protection of my life,
the pledge of my salvation,
the remedy of my frailty and inconstancy,
the reparation for all the defects of my life,
and my secure refuge at the hour of my death.
Be Thou, O Most Merciful Heart,
my justification before God Thy Father,
and screen me from His anger
which I have so justly merited.
I fear all from my own weakness and malice,
but placing my entire confidence in Thee,
O Heart of Love,
I hope all from Thine infinite Goodness.
Annihilate in me all that can displease or resist Thee.
Imprint Thy pure love so deeply in my heart
that I may never forget Thee or be separated from Thee.
I beseech Thee, through Thine infinite Goodness,
grant that my name be engraved upon Thy Heart,
for in this I place all my happiness
and all my glory,
to live and to die as one of Thy devoted servants.

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
