But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. –Matthew 6:20-21
I felt the Lord ask for a prayer yesterday on the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart. Today on the Memorial of the Immaculate Heart, it was written.
PRAYER OF THE BELOVED TO THE HOLY FAMILY
O Immaculate Heart of Mary!
How can I ever thank you enough for all you have done for me, a wretched sinner?
Your obedient Yes ushered in My Savior.
You have rescued me with your prayers and supplications.
Your interceding heart, most pure, beating in unison with your Son’s, draws me ever closer to him.
O Guardian Heart of Saint Joseph!
Faithful in your devotion to the Most Holy Family,
You took Mary Immaculate into your home.
You carried the Child Jesus in your arms.
You submitted to the Will of the Father.
Your interceding heart beating in unison with the Savior, draws me ever closer to Him.
O Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, my Savior, my Lord!
You call me Beloved.
You take away my sins.
You destroy the works of the devil.
You have shown me the Father.
You have given me a family.
May my will conform with yours.
May my heart beat in unison with yours.
A communion of hearts filled with the Spirit, made in the image and likeness of God.
May the Holy Family watch over me and my family and may we ever remain in your love.
Sacred. Immaculate. Guardian. Beloved.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
NOTE ABOUT THE IMAGE OF THE FOUR HEARTS:
This was an image that came through prayer. The heart at the top is the Sacred
Heart of Jesus. The hearts to the left and right are the Immaculate Heart of Mary
and the Guardian Heart of St Joseph. The Guardian Heart represents the yes of St Joseph to God to be the guardian of Jesus and Mary. His heart is marked with the
Marian Cross, signifying his intention to surrender his family to the Salvific
Mission of God through the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The lilies of
purity encircle his heart. The bottom heart is the Beloved Heart. This is meant to be
the sanctified human heart that can belong to you and to me. The Beloved Heat is
the heart of a Saint. Marked with the Marian Cross, it is a heart Jesus has called by
name. The Beloved Heart has been broken by sin, but it has been sewn together by
Christ who took on the thorns of our suffering with a helmet of salvation against
the devil. Our hearts become Beloved when we understand the love that God has
for us and we stop believing in the lies of the accuser. The Beloved Heart rests in
the Sacred Heart of Jesus, where Mary and Joseph also rest. The flowers at the
bottom bloom from the intercession of Mary and Joseph.
