March 1, 2017: A Prayer of Reparation

~by Susi Pittman


Oh God of mercy and compassion, look down with pity upon me,

As I kneel before your altar.

I am truly sorry for all my sins and ask for mercy and pardon.

I am anxious to make reparation for my own sins and infidelities,

And for those of all sinners.

I wish to make due reparation for the many times I have renewed your agony

And nailed you again to the Cross.

I love You, Jesus my love, above all things.

I repent with my whole heart for ever having offended You.

Never permit me to be separated from You again.

Grant that I may love You always, and then do with me what You will.

Help me to regain now by fervor and a great fidelity to grace,

That place which I should have reached by a slower process,

If I had always been faithful.

I lay the rest of my life at Your feet, be it long or short,

To atone for the past.

Trust me once again dear Lord, even though I have so often proved unfaithful.

Give me Your grace and Your love.

Keep me close to You because I am weak.

If left to myself I may again wound Your Sacred Heart.

Let me join with all Your loving children

Kneeling now in adoration before the Tabernacles throughout the world,

And with Your Angels who guard Your Sanctuary night and day.

Listen to me, dear Lord and forgive me my offenses as I plead for pardon.

Amen.
