FIRST FRIDAY DEVOTION PRAYERS TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS


ACT OF REPARATION
TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS
(To be prayed every First Friday of the Month)

                
Adorable Heart of Jesus, glowing with love for us and inflamed with zeal for our salvation! Oh Heart, ever sensible of our misery and the wretchedness to which our sins have reduced us, infinitely rich in mercy to heal the wounds of our souls!  Behold us, humbly prostrate before You to express the sorrow that fills our hearts for the coldness and indifference with which we have so long requited the numberless benefits You have conferred upon us.
                 
With a deep sense of outrages heaped upon You by our sins and the sins of others, we come to make a solemn reparation of honor to Your most Sacred Majesty. It was our sins that overwhelmed Your Heart with bitterness. It was the weight of our iniquities that pressed down Your face to the earth in the Garden of Olives and caused You to expire in anguish and agony on the Cross. But now, repenting and sorrowful, we cast ourselves at Your feet and implore forgiveness.
                
Adorable Heart of Jesus, source of true contrition and ever merciful to the penitent sinner, impart to our hearts the spirit of penance, and give to our eyes a fountain of tears that we may sincerely bewail our sins, now and for the rest of our days. O, would that we could blot them out even with our blood. Pardon them, O Lord, in Your mercy, and pardon and convert to You all that have committed irreverences and sacrileges against You in the Sacrament of Your love, and thus, give another proof that Your mercy is above all Your works.
                
Divine Jesus, with You there is mercy and plentiful redemption. Deliver us from our sins. Accept our sincere desire and our resolution, with the help of  Your grace, henceforth to be faithful to You. And in order to repair the sins and ingratitude by which we have grieved Your Most tender and loving Heart, we are resolved in the future, ever to love and honor You in the most adorable Sacrament of the Altar, where You are ever present to hear and grant our petitions and to be the food and life of our souls.
                
Be, O compassionate Jesus, our Mediator with Your heavenly Father whom we have so grievously offended. Strengthen our weakness, confirm our resolution of amendment,  and as Your Sacred Heart is our refuge and our hope when we have sinned, so may it be the strength and support of our repentance, that  nothing in life and death may ever again separate us from You. Amen.


ACT OF CONSECRATION
TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS
by  St. Margaret Mary Alacoque


I, (say your name), give and consecrate to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, my person and my life, my actions, pains and sufferings, not wishing to make use of any part of my being except to honor, love, and glorify your Sacred Heart.

It is my unchangeable will to be yours and to do everything for your love, renouncing with my whole heart whatever might displease you.

I take you to be the only object of my love, the guardian of my life, the pledge of my salvation, the remedy of my weakness and lack of faith, the reparation of all my sins, and the secure refuge at the hour of my death.

Heart of goodness, be my mediator before God the Father, and turn away from me the punishment my sins deserved. Heart of love, I place my trust in you. I fear all things from my sinfulness and weakness, but hope all things from your love.

Burn in me everything displeasing to you. Imprint your pure love upon my heart so that I will never forget you or be separated from you.

I implore you, by your goodness, that my name be written in your Heart. I consider it my happiness and glory to live and die as your disciple. Amen.

   
ENTHRONEMENT OF THE SACRED HEART


The center of the Devotion to the Sacred Heart is the Enthronement of the Image of the Sacred Heart in our homes. By this, we acknowledge that Jesus Christ is the King of our hearts; and we desire to make Him present daily in our homes and our lives as we pray the Act of Consecration by our whole family.

 
FAMILY CONSECRATION TO THE
SACRED HEART OF JESUS


Most Sweet Jesus, humbly kneeling at Your feet, we renew the consecration of our family to Your Sacred Heart. Be our King forever! In You we have full and entire confidence. May Your Holy Spirit penetrate our thoughts, our desires, our words, and our works. Bless our joys, in our trials, and in our labors. Grant us to know You better, to love You more, to serve You without faltering. Help us all together to build up in our land the “civilization of Love.”
               
By the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of Peace, set up Your kingdom in our country. Enter fully into the midst of our families and make them Your own through the solemn enthronement of Your Sacred Heart, so that soon one cry may resound from home to home: May the redeeming Heart of Jesus be everywhere loved, blessed, and glorified forever! Honor and glory be to the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary.  With St. Joseph, we offer this earnest prayer. Sacred Heart of Jesus, be with our families, make them wholly your own. Amen.


PETITION PRAYER TO
ST. MARGARET MARY ALACOQUE


O St. Margaret Mary, through you, Jesus pours out His abundant graces to all mankind. Help us to put aside our own interests and abandon ourselves entirely and lovingly to the work which the Adorable Heart of Jesus wants us to do, so that we may, like you, merit His special care and favors, through Jesus’ mighty Name.

St. Margaret Mary! You to whom the Sacred Heart of Jesus has manifested His divine treasures, we implore you to obtain all the graces we need from the Adorable Heart. We ask Him with unlimited confidence (mention your petition here). May the Divine Heart grant these requests through your intercession, so that He may yet again be glorified and loved through you. Amen.
