Prayer for York

We invite you to pray with us for our city before Jesus the "living bread" (John 6:51) truly present in the Blessed Sacrament. Come and talk to God who so loved the world (John 3:16) that He took flesh for you.

His Sacred Heart beats for love of you.

Jesus is waiting for you.

Friday 8th June

-Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus-

It's important to pray for the city we live in; to ask God's mercy and blessings on our city and those of us who live there. During 'Prayer for York' we do this by coming before Jesus truly present in the Blessed Sacrament (the Eucharist) exposed on the altar. From 8am on Friday morning to 12pm on Saturday afternoon there will be a time of intense prayer for our city in St Wilfrid's church. We come to Jesus over an extended period, we tell Him our troubles, we tell Him we love Him, we tell Him we trust Him; and we consecrate ourselves and our city to Him.

A full timetable is posted below. We hope that you'll join us!

Novena Prayer in preparation for the Feast of The Sacred Heart

O my Jesus, you have said: "Truly I say to you, ask and you will receive, seek and you will find, knock and it will be opened to you." Behold I knock, I seek and ask for the conversion of York.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in Thee.

O my Jesus, you have said: "Truly I say to you, if you ask anything of the Father in my name, he will give it to you." Behold, in your name, I ask the Father for the conversion of York.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in Thee.

O my Jesus, you have said: "Truly I say to you, heaven and earth will pass away but my words will not pass away." Encouraged by your infallible words I now ask for the conversion of York.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in Thee.

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, for whom it is impossible not to have compassion on the afflicted, have pity on us miserable sinners, have mercy on the city of York; grant that all evil be driven away from the city; melt hardened hearts, enthuse hearts grown cold, pour out Your grace upon us and grant that all hearts will turn to love You, that all may see Your mercy, and that Your Eucharistic Presence may be honoured, loved and glorified. We ask this through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, your tender Mother and ours.

 

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be…

Most Holy Trinity,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
I adore Thee profoundly.
I offer Thee the most precious Body, Blood, Soul
and Divinity of Jesus Christ,
present in all the tabernacles of the world,
in reparation for the outrages,
sacrileges and indifferences whereby He is offended.
And through the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart
and the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners.

Our Lady of York, St Joseph,  St Peter, St Wilfrid, St Philip Neri, St Margaret Clitherow
