SCRIPTURE: ‘Then Jesus withdrew from them, about a stone's throw away, and knelt down and prayed. “Father, if you are willing, take this cup away from me. Nevertheless, let your will be done, not mine.’” (Lk.22:41—43).

 

MEDITATION:  This was surely Jesus’ hardest prayer. Yet, doing his Father's will was his deepest desire and the key to all he did.

 

PRAYER:  Lord, there are times I want to get my own way instead of thinking of what others need. Help me to tune into my deepest desire and say, ‘your will be done’ and so learn to be mindful of others’ needs.

 

 


 

Closing prayer each day

 

Lord Jesus, your Sacred Heart is always open in love to each of us, especially when we are suffering. To all who come to you seeking your help, you show your compassion and healing power.

You care for us when we are lost, sympathise with us in loneliness and comfort us in mourning; you are closest to us when we are weakest. You reach out your hand to us when we stumble and have most need of your help. I ask you to listen to my prayer during this Novena, and grant what I ask. If what l ask is not for my own or others’ good, grant me always what is best, that I may build your kingdom of love in our world. Amen.
