Jesus invites us to stay with him in his passion
Scripture: And to all he said, “If any one wants to be a follower of mine, let him renounce himself and take up his cross every day and come, follow me.” (Lk. 9:23)
True friends do not desert each other in times of sorrow and trouble. Jesus invited his disciples to stay with him in his passion. By uniting our crosses with his, we can enter more deeply into his life, and become more like him.
Lord, help us to pray each Friday on your passion and death, and so to stay with you in your real human suffering. Help us to realize that you are very close to us, especially in our times of suffering.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, stay with us in our suffering.
(spend some quiet time in prayer with Jesus … speak to Jesus… hear Jesus… feel His Presence with you)
Closing Prayer for each day
Lord Jesus, your Sacred Heart is always open in love to each of us, especially when we are suffering. To all who come to you seeking your help, you show your compassion and healing power.
You care for us when we are lost, sympathise with us in loneliness and comfort us in mourning; you are closest to us when we are weakest. You reach out your hand to us when we stumble and have most need of your help. I ask you to listen to my prayer during this Novena, and grant what I ask… (make your request silently)
If what I ask is not for my own or other’s good, grant me always what is best, that I may build your kingdom of love in our world. Amen.
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in you. Amen.
