Novena to Sacred Heart of Jesus – Day 9


For nine days we have prayed together, placing our trust in Jesus and the love and
compassion he has for us and for all people. This has not been an easy school year, but we have made it through together. As we come to the end of our Novena, may we feel the peace and comfort only God’s love can bring as we have drawn close to God in our prayer. And may we feel especially close to one another, even if we are apart, because our prayer can bring us together. On this, our final day of our Novena …

Let us pray +
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
O my Jesus, I place my trust in you.

I pray that you may have the power to comprehend,
with all the saints,
what is the breadth and length and height and depth,
and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge,
so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
(Ephesians 3.18-19)

(pause for a moment of silent reflection)

Encouraged by your words we now ask for the grace to know how deeply you love each of us – all our friends and family, everyone in our community, in our country and in our world. Let your love warm us, strengthen us, and help us to face the struggles in our lives and to celebrate the happy times.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, we place all our trust in you.
O Sacred Heart of Jesus, full of compassion and love, have mercy on us.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
