Prayer to Sacred Heart of Jesus on First Friday of the Month

Print Friendly

The Sacred Heart of Jesus represents Jesus’ divine love for humanity. The Feast of the Sacred Heart is a solemnity in the Roman Catholic liturgical calendar, and is celebrated 19 days after Pentecost. As Pentecost is always celebrated on Sunday, the Feast of the Sacred Heart always falls on a Friday. Jesus Christ appeared to Margaret Mary Alacoque in the 17th century and this is one of the blessings which he promised to those who practice devotion to his Sacred Heart:

“In the excess of the mercy of my Heart, I promise you that my all powerful love will grant to all those who will receive Communion on the First Fridays, for nine consecutive months, the grace of final repentance: they will not die in my displeasure, nor without receiving the sacraments; and my Heart will be their secure refuge in that last hour.”

This promise led to the pious Roman Catholic practice of making an effort to attend Mass and receive Communion on the first Friday of each month. First Friday of every month is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Let us make an effort to recite this prayer on the First Friday of every month at our homes or in the Church.

Most Sacred heart of Jesus, on the day dedicated to honor you, we pledge ourselves anew to honour and serve you with our whole heart. Help us  to live our daily lives in a spirit of true concern for others and deep gratitude to You and to all through whom You love and serve us.

In the midst of all our trials and tribulations, we will remember that You are always with us , as you were with the Apostles when their boat was tossed in to the storm. We renew our faith and confidence in you.

We will never doubt that You are our friend, living within us always, walking beside us when courage fails, enlightening us when doubts cloud our vision of faith, protecting us against the assiduous lies and deceptions of the evil one.

Lord Jesus, bless each and every one of us, our families, our parish, our diocese, our country, and our entire world. Bless our jobs, our undertakings, our entertainments; may they always proceed from your inspiration.

In all that we do and say, may we be only channels of the love of Your Sacred Heart for all the people whom you bring within our reach to receive Your love through us. Comfort those who are sick (Mention Names); those who are suffering in their hearts or mind; those who have burdens and are breaking under them (Mention Name).

These two things, most especially, we ask of you today; to know intimately and love all that your Sacred Heart loves, to imbibe the attitude of Your Sacred Heart and to express them in our lives.

Finally, we pray that our confidence in You may grow more and more genuine, day by day and our devotion to the designs of the Sacred Heart, more and more committed. Amen

    I want to ask your unceasing prayers for the conversion of my husband who did cheat on me. He doesn’t know of what he is doing now pls. I want him in my life though how many time he keeps in telling me he doesn’t love me anymore but I still love him. We are only married in front of the judge but it was considerable law. He has converted as Muslim though he was a son of devoted catholic family. So I m begging you all to pray for our situation. Thanks and more prayers to all.
