Prayer Of Trust
Most Sacred and Adorable Heart of Jesus, I know not what trials may come to me this day, but I am certain that nothing will happen to me which Thou hast not foreseen and decreed. I trust Thy love for me in all and through all and in spite of all.
my trials and crosses, O Sacred
Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in Thee.
A Prayer Of Confidence In God
Jesus of the loving Heart, I believe that thou doth care for me more than Thou careth for the birds of the air or the lilies of the field.
believe that Thou doth care for me more
than a mother careth for the child in her arms.
And, therefore, I trust in Thee in all and through all and in spite of all. Amen.
Heart of Jesus,
[Rev. James O'Brien, S. J.]
Conformity To God's Holy Will
My Jesus, I accept any sorrow or suffering Thy Providence sees fit to send me. My wish is in all things to conform myself to Thy Holy Will. Whenever I kiss the crucifix, it is to show Thee that I am willing to carry my cross.
[St. Margaret Mary]
Welcome Be The Holy Will Of God!
O Lord, Thou knowest what is best for me. Give what Thou wilt and how much Thou wilt, and when Thou wilt. Deal with me as Thou thinkest good and as it best pleaseth Thee and is for Thy honor. Set me where Thou wilt and deal with me in all things as Thou wilt. Help me to bear my sufferings for Thy sake, and to say in all sincerity:
Welcome be the Holy Will of God!
sorrow darkens my life, Welcome be
the Holy Will of God!

Prayer To Imitate The Example Of Christ
King and My Savior, teach me
[Archbishop Goodier, S.J.]
The Great Request
special grace I ask of Thee, dear Heart
of Jesus: the grace of a happy death. If Thou dost give me this grace I
shall be indifferent as to what Thou dost with me. Send me trials,
failure, misfortune, ill health, the loss of my dearest friend, but in
return give me the grace of a happy death, and I shall be well content.
Act Of Trust In The Sacred Heart Of Jesus
Lord and my God, I believe all that Thou
hast ever taught . . .
believe that Thy love for me is not an affair
believe Thy love for me is as tender as
a mother's love, and therefore,
believe Thou hast planned everything that
shall ever happen to me,
never seek pleasure forbidden by Thee,
because Thou knowest
always pray: "May Thy Holy Will be
done in all things," because
accept the crosses of life, as I accept
the joys, with a grateful heart, because
not be worried or anxious about anything,
never lose heart in my efforts to be
weak or sinful I may be, I will never
doubt Thy mercy, because
my temptations, O Sacred Heart of
Jesus, I place my trust in Thee.
The Answer Is Assured!
The time may be delayed, the manner be unexpected, but the answer to prayer is sure to come. Not a tear of sacred sorrow, not a breath of holy desire, poured out in prayer to God, will ever be lost.Deo Gratias
