Novena To The Sacred Heart Of Jesus # 6 (June 14 June 23)

O Sacred and adorable Heart of Jesus!
Furnace of Eternal charity!
Ocean of infinite mercy!
Consolation of the afflicted!
Refuge of sinners!
and Hope of the whole world!
I most fervently adore Thee,
and unite my heart,
my affections,
and supplications,
to the perpetual homage Thou Thyself renderest
to the Divinity on our Altars.
Most amiable Heart,
which hast loved us with an eternal love,
supply Thyself for my insensibility,
and receive my desire at least of loving Thee
with all the ardour and sincerity Thou so justly meritest.
But remember, O adorable Heart!
that Thou hast not disclosed Thyself to us
only as an object of our adorations;
Thou desirest much more to engage our love,
and to become the ground
and motive of our loving confidence.
For this end,
Thou wert pierced through with a lance on the Cross;
and for the same purpose Thou remainest
a daily Victim of Thine own love on our Altars.
O infinitely compassionate Heart of Jesus!
which was overwhelmed with sorrow in the Garden of Olives,
at the view of our spiritual and corporal miseries,
I recur of Thee now with all the confidence Thou desirest
I should have in the extent of Thy power
and the riches of Thy mercy.
Convinced that those things
which are impossible to human beings
are infinitely easy to Thee,
and relying with an humble steadfast faith
on the sacred words of Truth itself,

that whatever we ask the Father
in the Name of Jesus should be granted,
I now most humbly implore in that adorable Name,
in virtue of that promise,
and through the abundant mercies of the Sacred Heart of Jesus,
the particular favour I petition for in this Novena.

(Specify it.)

O blessed saint Gertrude!
and all you glorious servants of Christ;
who while on earth were particularly devoted
to the Sacred Heart of Jesus,
join your prayers with mine,
and implore from the Divine Object of all your devotion
the obtaining of the petition which I now make,
and specially offer up through your intercession.
Beg likewise, from this adorable Heart,
which has dominion over all hearts,
and could in a moment change the most obdurate,
to have compassion on those who are
in the dreadful state of mortal sin,
and to open to us the treasure of its mercy
at the hour of our death.

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
