Prayer for a Special Intention
Dear Jesus, you have told us ‘Come to me and I will give you rest’. I pause before you now and ask you to listen to my prayer and special intention ........ In friendship I place this into your hands and I leave it to you. This intention, Jesus, comes from my heart and I place it into yours. You also told us ‘Ask and you will receive’ In faith I entrust my prayers to you. Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in you. Amen.
