1. Difficulty in Deciding to Enter Religious Life


Oh, Heavenly Father,
Listen to my loving prayers to your faithful heart.
I plead before you with all devoted confidence
Of serving you faithfully.
As Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart had reservations about
Entering religious life.
I, too, have reservations about entering religious life.
I plead to your faithful heart that you would allow
Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart,
To intercede on my behalf
Bring forth your loving arms to remove the obstacles
Which are placed in front of me
For living a consecrated life
I ask with all confidence in you.
Oh, Lord
Amen


2. Difficulty in Finding a Vocation

Oh Gracious, Loving Father,
Hear my loving prayers to your precious heart.
I devote my life to you as Jesus did,
But now my loving heart
Is dry like the desert sands.
I have no vocation.
As Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart
Wrestled with what her vocation was to be,
I ask for her to intercede on my behalf.
May you allow her to guide me out of the desert
And into fertile lands where I will be suited to live out
My love for you in giving your love to others as you have
Given yours to me.
I ask this prayer with a loving heart,
Oh Gracious, Loving Father.
Amen


3. Difficulty in Developing Your Purpose

Oh, Heavenly Father,
Hear my faithful prayers to you
Your love for me is always undying
I am seeking out the purpose of my life
Having wrestled with the enemy and lost,
I am now ready to give you my willingness for your purpose
As Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart
Sought out your guidance on the purpose of her holy life,
I, too, ask you for her intercession on your behalf
May you allow her to trace out a path for me,
In which I may serve you and only you,
My true Heavenly Father
I make this intercession with an undying love for you
Amen


4.  Difficulty in Displaying Motherly Love

Oh, My Loving Creator.
Hear my heart as it echoes throughout my soul.
I am unable to give my motherly affection to others.
I am fearful and sorrowful for not being able to display
My gratitude for others who give so easily their gratitude to me
As Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart,
Gave to her younger sisters the motherly affection they so desired,
May you allow Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart to
Teach me to love those who easily give their love to others.
Teach me to find your love in everything I do.
Oh, My Loving Creator, grant my prayer
In your loving name.
Amen


5. Difficulty in Trusting God

Oh, humble Lord,
Listen to my prayer.
I am sinful and sorrowful.
The trust that I have in you is slowly dying.
My soul is lost like a boat in the ocean.
I see no land in sight and I am giving up.
I plead before you with watchful eyes, as you regard my life.
Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart
Watched you with faithful eyes and,
Met her trials with faith and love for you.
Oh Lord, I plead now for her loving intercession on my behalf.
Give me a sign of your loving faithfulness and trust in me,
So I may rekindle that same loving trust in you.
Oh Lord, may I accept your judgment for my life willingly.
With faith and love,
Oh Lord.
Amen


6. Difficulty in Understanding People’s Needs

Oh, My Understanding Lord,
Listen with patience to my prayer.
I have little patience in understanding the needs of others.
I am like a lighthouse with a broken lamp,
Unable to lead others away from the rocky cliffs.
I seek not for other peoples needs, but for my own needs.
As Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart
Gave herself to her younger sisters without first thinking of her own needs,
I ask for her intercession, Oh Lord, on my behalf.
To give me guidance in placing the needs of others first
Allow me to be a beacon of hope,
So that I may give light to others in the difficulties they may face
Oh, My Understanding Lord,
Listen as I plead to you selfishly.
Amen

7. Asking for Help in Learning New Subjects

Oh my all knowing Father.
Hear my faithful prayers.
My mind is anchored in trying to understand new lessons before me.
I have no comprehension of the tasks I must perform.
I have no understanding of what I am to do.
I am at a stalemate.
As Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart
Taught her sisters their lesson with faithfulness and love,
May you bless me through her intercession.
Teach me how I must learn what is before me.
I ask for the peacefulness of her loving soul to lead me on,
That I may leap forward in my understanding of my lessons
And accomplish what I must do.
Oh my all knowing Father,
Hear my faithful prayer.
Amen

8. Asking for Help When We are Suffering Emotionally

Oh my faithful Lord.
My all-loving Lord listen to my prayer as I weep.
My cup is overflowing with trials and I can no longer handle it.
I have given up emotionally on what is before me.
I no longer have the willingness to accept what is given to me.
As Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart
Drew from you, Oh Lord, the love of suffering through her trials.
May you allow Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart
To intercede for my weeping heart, Oh Lord, on my behalf.
May she obtain for me her strength in following through my trials.
May she show me the love of suffering as an example of what my love for you must be.
May she teach me how to renew my strength and accept whatever you allow
As a means of proving my love for you
I ask this with a weeping heart,
Oh Lord
Amen

9.  Asking for Help When We are Suffering Physically

Oh Loving Jesus,
I weep before your precious heart.
I am unable to bear the physical burden of my disease.
I have no hope in my recovery.
I am in total despair.
Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart endured severe arthritis and never revealed it to others.
She learned to love her disabilities caused by this disease.
I ask, Oh Lord, for her intercession on my behalf.
I ask with a loving heart and an open mind,
To help me accept my disease,
As Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart accepted hers.
Allow me to live my remaining time on this earth in total peace with whatever you send.
I ask this prayer with an open heart.
Oh Lord
Amen

10. Asking for Help in Acquiring for Patience

Oh my faithful Lord.
I pray in earnest.
I have no patience for the trials in my life.
I don’t understand your timing, as it is not the same as mine.
I have no patience to endure the difficult tasks before me.
Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart endured her trials,
With absolute patience, faithfulness and trust.
May you, Oh my faithful Lord, allow her to intercede on my behalf.
May she show me the benefits of being patient,
And show me that your timing is only for my benefit.
I ask this prayer, Oh Lord, with a reverent heart.
Amen

11. Asking for Help to Love Our Enemies

Oh my Lord of great mercies,
Giver of all created life,
To each of us, you give hope and we give you praise.
I promise to love my enemies, but find it difficult to do so.
Whenever my enemies attack me, my first instinct is to attack them back.
As Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart
Embraced her enemies with a gentle motherly touch,
Let me ask for her intercession on my behalf.
Allow Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart,
To direct my negative energy away from my enemies
Let us imitate her in giving them a loving gentle response.
Let her remind me that your love for them is the same as your love for me.
I ask this prayer,
In your own honor.
Oh Lord
Amen

12. Asking for Help to Find a Profession

Oh Lord,
All knowing and loving
Hear my faithful prayer.
I cannot foresee the future of my profession.
I do not know what it is you ask of me.
I am having trouble distinguishing your way from mine.
Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart
Had difficulties in making her profession.
Ultimately through her faithful trust in your judgment,
She was able to come to a conclusion as to what her profession would be.
I ask for Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart’s intercession on my behalf,
So that I, a faithful follower of you O Lord,
Would be led to what you see as my profession.
I ask this prayer with a faithful heart,
Oh Lord,
Amen

13. Asking for Help to Find Someone to Assist Me

Oh My Jesus,
My faithful companion,
Giver of great mercy,
Lover of my life’s journey,
Hear My Prayer.
Once again a trial in my life has begun.
I seek aid and assistance to endure this trial.
I am unable to meet my tasks without someone’s assistance.
As Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart
Endured the difficulties of her trials, when she needed help,
You were there to give her assistance.
Allow Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart to intercede on my behalf.
Let her embrace me with the love she has for you.
Allow her to find a mentor for me who will lead me to love you faithfully.
I ask for your loving assistance,
Oh Lord,
Amen

14. Asking for Help for Arthritis Suffers

Oh my loving Jesus,
Hear my sorrowful prayer.
I am suffering from arthritis and I am no longer able to do the things I used to do.
I suffer only for you so that you will give me the strength to move forward.
As Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart suffered from arthritis,
It limited her ability to do the things she had faithfully performed in your name.
I ask you, my loving Jesus, to allow her to intercede on my behalf.
May you allow Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart to
Show me that accepting my immobility is only an act of my love for you.
May the suffering of my disease
Bring me even closer to your loving heart.
I ask this prayer,
Oh my loving Jesus,
In your blessed name,
Amen

15. Asking for Guidance on Spiritual Matters

Oh My Lord,
Faithful guardian of my soul,
Giver of all things brought into my mortal life,
I suffer only from the lack of spiritual knowledge in your name.
I seek the truth that you pour from your precious heart.
I have no mortal to guide me to your sacred words.
Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart received a spiritual advisor
To help guide her on her path to you, my Lord
May you allow Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart to intercede on your behalf.
May she assist me in finding a spiritual mentor to help me grow spiritually.
May she obtain for me spiritual knowledge, which I seek solely in your name,
Oh Lord,
Amen

16. Asking for Guidance on Religious Matters

Oh My Loving Jesus,
Giver of gentle love to my soul,
I am faced with a dilemma
I am torn between making decisions against my best judgment and
Acting out what is more appealing to others than to you.
Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart suffered with a difficult dilemma of
Making the ultimate sacrifice of serving you in a monastery.
You aided her with a priest to show her the benefits of living a cloistered life.
I ask that you allow Sister Marie of the Sacred Heart to act on my behalf.
Help me see, Sister Marie, the benefits of being free even though
I am cloistered in my surroundings.
Help me, Sister Marie, in finding a priest who will guide me through my difficult times.
Help me, Sister Marie, to surrender to God’s Holy will.
I ask this prayer with hope in my heart,
Oh Lord,
Amen
