Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus is really devotion to His Mercy and His Love. In this prayer for the help of the Sacred Heart, we ask Christ to take away all those human failings that keep us from living full lives as Christians.
For the Help of the Sacred Heart
Take away, O my Jesus, the blindness of my heart, that I may know Thee; take away the hardness of my heart, that I may fear Thee; take away the coldness of my heart, that I may resist everything that is contrary to Thy will; take away its heavy, earthly sluggishness and selfishness, that I may be capable of heroic sacrifice for Thy glory, and for the souls whom Thou has redeemed with Thy own most precious blood. Amen.
