Prayers to the Sacred Heart

Act of Reparation to Sacred Heart of Jesus (#1)

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, animated with a desire to repair the outrages unceasingly offered to Thee, we prostrate before Thy throne of mercy and on behalf of all mankind, pledge love and fidelity to Thee.

+ The more Thy mysteries are blasphemed, the more firmly we shall believe them, O Sacred Heart of Jesus!

+ The more hearts despise and ignore Thy Love, the more we shall love Thee, O loving Heart of Jesus!

+ The more that scientistic unbelief attacks Thy Divinity, the more humbly and profoundly we shall adore Thee, O Divine Heart of Jesus!

+ The more Thy Sacraments are despised and blasphemed, the more frequently we shall receive them with love and reverence, most generous Heart of Jesus!

+ The more Thy holy laws are transgressed and ignored, the more we shall take care to observe them, most holy Heart of Jesus!

+ The more Thou art blasphemed and scorned in the Holy Eucharist, Thy Sacrament of Love, the more ardently we shall adore Thee, Most Sacred Heart of Jesus!

+ The more the imitation of Thy virtues is scorned and forgotten, the more we shall endeavour to practice them, most obedient Heart of Jesus.

+ The more the devil strives to destroy souls, the more we shall be inflamed to save them by penances and prayers to Thee, most zealous Lover of Souls!

+ The more sin and impurity deface and destroy Thy divine image in man, the more we shall try by purity of life to be a living temple of the Holy Spirit, Most Sacred Heart of Jesus!

+ The more Thy Holy Church is scorned and compromised, the more we shall endeavour to be her faithful children, Most Loving Heart of Jesus!

+ The more that hubris, heresy and apostasy threaten Holy Church, the more we shall turn to Thy Sacred Heart and to the Immaculate Heart of Thy Mother to save us, O Sacred Heart of Jesus!

+ The more Thine Immaculate Mother is blasphemed, the more we shall increase our fervent devotions to her, Most Devoted Heart of Jesus!

+ The more Thy Church is persecuted, the more we shall pray and sacrifice for her triumph and exaltation, Most Sacred Heart of Jesus!

Let us pray.
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, always obedient to the Eternal Father, teach us to be ever obedient and humble in the face of the diabolical disorientation that has sown such chaos in the Church and disheartened so many. Suffer us not to be scandalised by this long, dark night of the soul of our Church, but to persevere in loving obedience trusting always in Thine Sacred Heart and in Mary’s Immaculate Heart. Amen.

Prayer of Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Adorable Heart of Jesus, glowing with Love for us and inflamed with zeal for our salvation. O Heart that understands the misery to which our sins have brought us, infinitely rich in Mercy to heal the wounds of our souls, behold me humbly kneeling before Thee to express the sorrow that fills my heart for the coldness and indifference with which I have so long returned the numberless benefits which Thou hast bestowed upon me.

With a deep sense of the outrages that have been heaped upon Thee by my sins and the sins of others, I wish to make reparation to Thy most Sacred Majesty. It was our sins that filled Thy Heart with bitterness; it was the weight of our guilt that pressed down Thy Face to the earth in the Garden of Olives and caused Thee to die in agony on the Cross. But now, repentant and sorrowful, I implore Thy forgiveness.

Adorable Heart of Jesus, Source of true consolation and ever merciful to the penitent sinner, impart to our hearts the spirit of penance that we may be sincerely sorry for our sins. Pardon them, O Lord, in Thy Mercy, and let all who have sinned against Thee in the Sacrament of Thy love be converted and return unto Thee. Deliver us from our sins. And in order to repair the sins of ingratitude by which we have grieved Thy most tender and loving Heart, may we love and honour Thee in the most adorable Sacrament of the Altar, where Thou art present to hear and grant our petitions and to be the food and life of our souls.

Merciful Jesus, be our Mediator with Thy Heavenly Father, Whom we have so grievously offended. Help us to amend our ways. As Thy Sacred Heart is our refuge and our hope when we have sinned, so let it be the strength and support of our repentance, and nothing in life or death shall ever separate us from Thee. Amen.

Prayer to the Sacred Heart

O Sacred Heart of Jesus,
filled with infinite Love,
broken by my ingratitude,
pierced by my sins,
yet loving me still;
accept the consecration
that I make to Thee
of all that I am
and all that I have.
Take every faculty
of my soul and body
and draw me,
day by day,
nearer and nearer
to Thy Sacred Heart,
and there,
as I can understand the lesson,
teach me Thy blessed ways. Amen.

Efficacious Novena to the Sacred Heart

I. O my Jesus, Thou hast said: “Truly I say to you, ask and it will be given you, seek and you will find, knock and it will be opened to you.” Behold I knock, I seek, and I ask for the grace of [​state your request].

Our Father … Hail Mary … Glory be …
Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in Thee.

II. O my Jesus, Thou hast said: “Truly, I say to you, if you ask anything of the Father in My name, He will give it to you.” Behold, in Thy name, I ask the Father for the grace of [state your request].

Our Father … Hail Mary … Glory be …
Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in Thee.

III. O my Jesus, Thou hast said: “Truly I say to you, Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” Encouraged by Thy infallible words, I now ask for the grace of [state your request].

Our Father … Hail Mary … Glory be …
Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in Thee.

Let us pray.
O Sacred Heart of Jesus, for Whom it is impossible not to have compassion on the afflicted, have mercy on us miserable sinners and grant us the grace which we ask of Thee, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, thy tender Mother and ours.

Hail Holy Queen …
St. Joseph, foster father of Jesus, pray for us.

 

NB: This novena was prayed by St. Padre Pio everyday for all those who recommended themselves to his prayers.

Commentary from ThoughtCo.com:
In this Novena to the Sacred Heart, we pray for nine days in trust and confidence in the mercy and love of Jesus Christ, that He might grant our request. At each point where the prayer indicates that you should state your request, mention the same request, and use the same request for each of the nine days of the novena.

While this novena is appropriate to pray around the Feast of the Sacred Heart (19 days after Pentecost Sunday), we can (and should) pray it throughout the year, as needs arise.
