Divine Jesus, You have said,
“Ask and you shall receive;
seek and you shall find;
knock and it shall be opened to you.”
Behold me kneeling at Your feet,
filled with a lively faith
and confidence in the promises
dictated by Your Sacred Heart
to Saint Margaret Mary.
I come to ask this favour:
(Make your request here…)
To whom can I turn if not to You,
Whose Heart is the source of all graces and merits?
Where should I seek if not in the treasure
which contains all the riches
of Your kindness and mercy?
Where should I knock if not at the door
through which God gives Himself to us
and through which we go to God?
I have recourse to You,
Heart of Jesus.
In You I find consolation when afflicted,
protection when persecuted,
strength when burdened with trials,
and light in doubt and darkness.
I firmly believe that You can grant me
the grace I implore,
even though it should require a miracle.
You have only to will it
and my prayer will be granted.
I admit that I am most unworthy of Your favours,
but this is not a reason for me to be discouraged.
You are the God of mercy,
and You will not refuse a contrite heart.
Cast upon me a look of mercy, I beg of You,
and Your kind Heart will find in my miseries
and weakness a reason for granting my prayer.
whatever may be Your decision
with regard to my request,
I will never stop adoring,
loving, praising, and serving You.
be pleased to accept this
my act of perfect resignation
to the decrees of Your adorable Heart,
which I sincerely desire
may be fulfilled in and by me
and all Your creatures forever.
Grant me the grace for which I humbly implore You
through the Immaculate Heart
of Your most sorrowful Mother.
You entrusted me to her as her child,
and her prayers are all-powerful with You.
My God, I offer You all my prayers,
works, joys, and sufferings
in union with the Sacred Heart of Jesus,
for the intentions
for which He pleads and offers Himself
in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass,
in thanksgiving for Your favours,
in reparation for my sins,
and in humble supplication
for my temporal and eternal welfare,
for the needs of our holy Mother the Church,
for the conversion of sinners,
and for the relief of the poor souls in purgatory.
