Prayer for the Heart of a Child

Prayer for the Heart of a Child

Holy Mary, Mother of God,
preserve in me the heart of a child,
pure and transparent as a spring.
Obtain for me a simple heart
That does not brood over sorrows;
A heart generous in giving itself,
Quick to feel compassion;
A faithful, generous heart
that forgets no favor
and holds no grudge.
Give me a humble, gentle heart
Loving without asking any return;
A great indomitable heart
That no ingratitude can close,
No indifference can weary;
A heart tortured by its desire
for the glory of Jesus Christ:
Pierced by His love
With a wound that will heal
only in heaven.

    O Child Jesus Christ, please reform our heart to be that of a child – so pure, so innocent, and kind…compassionate but wise, generous to give but with justice for those who are more in need…for we admire Your humility and wisdom O Lord for even at a very young age, You already know the true meaning of family love…and that You shared this virtue to all families that even those who are older, the parents, and the elderly may listen even the voice of child such as You…and with the guidance and protection of Mother Mary and Father Saint Joseph that God’s Love may be exemplified as one Holy Family…so that we may all unite as equal members in one loving family of God in heaven…Amen.
