Oh Dear Lord thank you for the blessings of this life. Today I know I sit on a hilltop, and want to thank you for this moment where I can say thank you easily. I ask as the inevitable decent into a new challenge comes I find the strength in you to be like Job and the saints. In my thoughts, prayers, words and deeds may I continue to praise you through anything which falls on me.
Your Divine Mercy flows from the wounds you received on the very same cross I must help you carry. I know those wounds you bore came from my evil acts. I beg of you to forgive me, and wash me in the blood and water from your side. I yearn to learn great humility on this journey to our heavenly home, so my pride does not block me from passing through the camel’s eye.
May I always remember suffering has a purpose to help me, and this world, conform to your divine plan of salvation for those who seek it. Give me the wisdom to continually seek and act on true wisdom which only can come from you to advance your will on earth. Finally, please let me have a gift of cheerfulness. I must learn to carry your cross with a calm like your saints.
Jesus thank you for dying on the cross for my salvation. Thank you for offering salvation to my family and the whole world. I pray through the rest of my time here on this earth, I work towards contrition and mending the wounds I inflect on you and your body. At the end of my life…I beg you to grant your Divine Mercy on me so I can make the final step to be with you in heaven.
Jesus I trust in you!
PS We spent the Divine Mercy hour at Adoration today in our parish. Great way to end a Novena.
