SH Novena 7th Day : Transformed Heart


Scripture: Ezekiel 36:26-27
“I shall give you a new heart, and put a new spirit in you; I shall remove the heart of stone from your bodies and give you a heart of flesh instead. I shall put My Spirit in you”.

The hardness of the heart is a real danger for all of us.  We witness much sadness in our world, watch violence unfold on our television screens. Sometimes tensions blind us towards the needs and pains of other people. During these novena days, maybe we recognise the potential for that hardness of heart and give thanks so that we can receive new hearts and spirits. Let us genuinely explore opportunities to be the better person – the Spirit-filled person.

O, Sacred Heart, it is said that Your words put a new heart in people. They recognised in You one who taught with authority, and Your teaching made a deep and lasting impression on those who listened in faith. Open my ears to Your teaching and my heart to respond.  Amen.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, open our hearts to you.

(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, with 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. …

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.
