TWO PRAYERS OF CONSECRATION TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS.

TWO PRAYERS OF CONSECRATION TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS.

Happy Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus! Here you have two prayers of consecration which you might want to tell Our Lord.

PRAYER 1: SHORT FORM

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 You,
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 Your Sacred Side,
and there, as I can bear the lesson,
teach me Your blessed ways.
Amen.

PRAYER 2: FROM ST. MARGARET MARY ALACOQUE

I GIVE MYSELF AND CONSECRATE TO THE SACRED HEART OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, MY PERSON AND MY LIFE, MY ACTIONS, PAINS AND SUFFERINGS, SO THAT I MAY BE UNWILLING TO MAKE USE OF ANY PART OF MY BEING OTHER THAN TO HONOR, LOVE AND GLORIFY THE SACRED HEART. THIS IS MY UNCHANGING PURPOSE, NAMELY, TO BE ALL HIS, AND TO DO ALL THINGS FOR THE LOVE OF HIM, AT THE SAME TIME RENOUNCING WITH ALL MY HEART WHATEVER IS DISPLEASING TO HIM. I THEREFORE TAKE YOU, O SACRED HEART, TO BE THE ONLY OBJECT OF MY LOVE, THE GUARDIAN OF MY LIFE, MY ASSURANCE OF SALVATION, THE REMEDY OF MY WEAKNESS AND INCONSTANCY, THE ATONEMENT FOR ALL THE FAULTS OF MY LIFE AND MY SURE REFUGE AT THE HOUR OF DEATH.
BE THEN, O HEART OF GOODNESS, MY JUSTIFICATION BEFORE GOD THE FATHER, AND TURN AWAY FROM ME THE STROKES OF HIS RIGHTEOUS ANGER. O HEART OF LOVE, I PUT ALL MY CONFIDENCE IN YOU, FOR I FEAR EVERYTHING FROM MY OWN WICKEDNESS AND FRAILTY, BUT I HOPE FOR ALL THINGS FROM YOUR GOODNESS AND BOUNTY.
REMOVE FROM ME ALL THAT CAN DISPLEASE YOU OR RESIST YOUR HOLY WILL; LET YOUR PURE LOVE IMPRINT YOUR IMAGE SO DEEPLY UPON MY HEART, THAT I SHALL NEVER BE ABLE TO FORGET YOU OR TO BE SEPARATED FROM YOU.

MAY I OBTAIN FROM ALL YOUR LOVING KINDNESS THE GRACE OF HAVING MY NAME WRITTEN IN YOUR HEART, FOR IN YOU I DESIRE TO PLACE ALL MY HAPPINESS AND GLORY, LIVING AND DYING IN BONDAGE TO YOU.
AMEN.
