(recited often by Jelena’s prayer group in Medjugorje)
Oh God, our hearts are in deep obscurity, in spite of our link to Your heart.
Our hearts are between You and satan;
do not permit it to be like that!
Every time our hearts are divided between good and evil,
let them be enlightened by Your light and let them be unified.
Never permit for there to be able to exist in us two loves,
That there can never co-exist in us two faiths,
And that there can never co-exist in us:
lying and sincerity, love and hatred, honesty and dishonesty, humility and pride.
Help us, on the contrary so that our hearts may be elevated toward You
just like that of a child.
May our hearts be rebuilt and captivated with peace and continue
to always have the longing for peace.
May Your holy will and Your love dwell in us,
that at least sometimes we would really wish to be Your children
and when, Oh Lord, we will desire to be Your children,
remember our past desires and help us to receive You again.
We open our hearts to you so that Your holy love will remain in us.
We open our souls to you,
so that they may be touched by Your holy mercy
which will help us to see clearly all our sins,
and will make us realize that which makes us impure is sin.
God, we want to be Your children, humble and devout,
To the point of becoming your cherished and sincere children,
such as only the Father would desire that we be.
Help us, Jesus, our brother, to obtain the goodness of the Father in our regard,
and to be good to Him.
Help us, Jesus, to understand well what God gives us,
although sometimes we fail to perform a good act,
as though it were for us an evil.
