Some of our prayer group members have gone overseas on a pilgrimage. We are hoping to receive beautiful photos and stories from them, which I will share as soon as they are received. And we are fully expecting miracles too! I thought I would share one of the things for which we are praying, with faith.
Jesus said: “Did I not tell you that if you believed you would see the glory of God?” (John 11:40)
There are other stories behind this, such as why we are praying to the Sacred Heart of Jesus for the healing of my young sister, E, of severe, crippling rheumatoid arthritis. Of course, we are always praying for many things daily: foremost is the salvation of souls for Our Lord! This is just one specific request made out of Love to our Beloved Saviour. Here is the email request my mum sent out:
I want you to start saying this prayer Thursday 25th June for 3 novenas 21 days.
I will say it too. We will finish just a few days after I return.
The last novena will be a thanksgiving novena.
I will ask Our Lady, (while at the pilgrimage site) and St. Padre Pio for your healing.
Jesus always hears our prayers. You know that.
His timing is always right.
Say it with Faith, Hope and Love. EVERY DAY.
I will be saying the prayer below in the third person.
Say all the prayers below each day.
And remember it is the month of the SACRED HEART which loves you very much!!!
Prayer for healing:
Heavenly Father, I call on You right now in a special way.
It is through your power that I was created.
Every breath I take, every morning I wake up
and every moment of every hour, I live under your power.
Father, I ask you now to touch me with that same power.
For if You created me from nothing, You can certainly recreate me.
Fill me with the healing power of your Spirit.
Cast out anything that should not be in me.
Mend what is broken. Root out any unproductive cells.
Open any blocked arteries or veins
and re build any damaged areas.
Remove all inflammation and cleanse any infection.
Let the warmth of your healing love pass through my body
to make new any unhealthy areas
so that my body will function the way You created it to function.
And Father, restore me to full health in mind and body
so that I may serve You the rest of my life.
I ask this through the intercession of Mother Mary, Health of the sick
and your Son Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.
Prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus:
O Most Holy Heart of Jesus,
Fountain of every blessing, I adore Thee
and with a lively sorrow for my sins;
I offer Thee this poor heart of mine.
Make me humble, patient, pure
and wholly obedient to Thy Will.
Grant, good Jesus, that I may live in Thee and for Thee.
Protect me in the midst of danger;
comfort me in my afflictions;
give me health of body, assistance in my temporal needs,
Thy blessing on all that I do, and the grace of a holy death.
Within Thy Heart I place my every care.
In every need let me come to Thee with humble trust
Saying ,’Heart of Jesus help me’.
Invocations to the Sacred Heart:
Merciful Jesus, I consecrate myself today and always to Thy Most Sacred Heart.
Most sacred Heart of Jesus, I implore, that I may love thee more and more.
Most sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in Thee.
Most sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, I believe in Thy love for me.
Jesus, Meek and humble of heart, make my heart like unto Thine.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy Kingdom Come.
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, convert sinners, save the dying,

Glory be to the Father… (x 3 times)
