Sacred Heart Novena
DAY 7 - JUNE 13
Jesus, Creative Heartbeat of God, stretch us into new visions and dreams of You.
Call to Prayer
The great secret, the great mystery is this: there is a heart of the world…and this heart is the heart of Christ. Pierre Teihard de Chardin
Scripture (Jeremiah 29:11)
“I say this because I know what I am planning for you,” says the Lord. “I have good plans for you, not plans to hurt you. I will give you hope and a good future.”
Silence: What world situation awaits your prayer today? Spend time speaking to the heart of Jesus about it.
