Heart of Mary by Anna Makać. © 2021 Anna Makać. Used with permission.

Gracious God, through Mary you teach us how to love you. In confidence we pray: Fix our hearts on Christ, O God. 

Help us to ponder your Word made manifest in our hearts through Scripture, your Church, creation, and one another.  

     Fix our hearts on Christ, O God.  

Inspire your Church to reach out in compassion to unbelievers and those who doubt your love. 

     Fix our hearts on Christ, O God. 

Incline our senses to the needs of the poor, and inspirit your Church’s works of justice and mercy.  

     Fix our hearts on Christ, O God. 

Our Father . . . 

May God strengthen us inwardly through the power of the Holy Spirit, and may Christ dwell in our hearts through faith. Amen.
