The Surrendering Heart

I sense You, O Sacred Heart of my Lord, drawing me to You. I feel Your hand reaching for mine; you beckon me to Your path and Your Heart. You wish to love me and to be loved in return. Although I feel so unworthy, I respond to Your desire and Your call. Help me to reach out for Your hand, my Lord. Help me to open to Your Will and to the Love of Your Sacred Heart. Show me how to surrender to your Perfect Plan for me. Teach me to love You, my Lord, as You desire to be loved.

Readings: (Pick from) John 12:24-26, Luke 9:23-26, Matthew 11:25-30; 16:24-28, John 15:1-17. Psalm 62

Response: Choose a prayer poem from the Surrendering Heart selections.

Reflection: As I learn to trust You, my Lord, I learn to give over more of myself to you. As I learn to love You, most Sacred Heart of my Lord, I learn to give my heart to You more and more. As You accept my heart into Yours, You love me into loving. I surrender to you all I am, O Lord. Teach me to be what You desire.

(Opt. a prayer of consecration is an excellent choice here.)
