Today’s Scripture

As his passion was beginning Jesus knew how it would devastate his disciples,
so he told Peter, ‘I have prayed for you.’ Peter found the strength to come through it and support the others.

‘Simon, Simon, listen! Satan has demanded to sift all of you like wheat, but I have prayed for you that your own faith may not fail; and you, when once you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.’ And he said to him, ‘Lord, I am ready to go with you to prison and to death!’ Jesus said, ‘I tell you, Peter, the cock will not crow this day, until you have denied three times that you know me.’

( Luke 22:32 NRSV)

Reflection for the EightDay

The theologian Chardin speaks of the two hands of God: with one hand God holds you carefully, with the other he shapes your life and the whole universe. Notice how his wounded hand works to restore the damage done to us, like a painter carefully restoring a damaged masterpiece – remember you are that work of art!

Today’s Prayer

Imagine Jesus leaning forward, speaking your name and saying: ‘I have prayed for you.’ Feel the support of that prayer. Jesus might add, ‘When you pray for people you care about, I am praying beside you.’ We pray together for the whole world to have the strength to come through hard times knowing you are with us.

Sacred Heart of Jesus I place all my trust in you.

Daily Invocation

Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in you.

Novena Prayer

You can use the novena prayer below or open your personalised novena prayer.

Lord work on my heart
until it becomes like your Sacred Heart.
Give me hope.
Then I can love you and all my sisters and brothers
with the respect, compassion, and forgiveness
that you have for everyone.
I ask this in your name.

I ask you to grant
my special request during this novena
(here mention your intention).

If what I ask is not for my own good

and the good of others,
grant me what will most help
to build up your kingdom of justice, love and peace.
I make this prayer with confidence in your love.
