Hardened Heart

My heart is so incredibly hardened. Please pray that I stop being so mean. :o:(

I can’t edit my first post - or I would ask it to be deleted. but please NEVER MIND.

Just IGNORE THIS REQUEST. PLEASE.

PATER NOSTER,
qui es in caelis,
sanctificetur nomen tuum.
Adveniat regnum tuum.
Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra.
Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie,
et dimitte nobis debita nostra
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.
Et ne nos inducas in tentationem,
sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

rbsa, I think we should pray for this.

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve: to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus, O merciful, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary! Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. Amen.

We’ll still pray for ya anyway! :slight_smile:

Our Fatherb

Matthew 18:3
And said: Amen I say to you, unless you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Our Hearts (some of us including myself) become hardened over the years when we have placed ‘barriers up’ after past profound hurts and emotions not released, nor Healing done, in relation to those hurts. Coupled with insecurity that most people have (tempted by satan) along with ego and pride; we have nasty moments and can be often directed at the most innocent beautiful people or through lack of effective communication.

Regardless we need to be ‘contrite’ (truly sorry) and remorseful for all sins committed.

The way in which Mother Mary (Our Holy Mother Dear Our Lady Mary Mother of Jesus) has been teaching me to fully open up my Heart to Jesus is by focussing on Jesus’ Stations of The Cross daily in The Holy Rosaries, looking at Jesus expressions and reading Jesus Holy Scriptures as He suffered in His Passion. This takes a bit of doing ie daily devotion time set aside in a stress free and relaxed environment in order to crack our Hearts right open, steeping ourselves in His Pain and Suffering and Passion.

Then you will find compassion and be able to pull yourself up before succumbing to satan’s temptations more easily and frequently.

Pray The Holy Rosary twice daily (if you don’t already) and focus on Jesus Stations of His Cross and focus on Our Lady Mary Mother of Jesus and imagine what Mother Mary endured in Jesus Days.

Our Father who art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name, Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from all evil Amen

I truly hope you get over it before God gets a hold of you in that state…

I wanted to share a couple of my poems with you, but the attachment screen keeps coming up blank this evening. If there were ever someone who should have a hardened heart, I think I’d rank up there pretty well. But, I refuse. It would seem to help them with their vicious abuse cycle…not a thing of love, and if you’re not for us you’re against us. Oh wow, you can be your own best saboteur. My problem? All the mean hard hearted people who senselessly hurt others due to their own self indulgence. Please don’t go there. I’d still like some people to be able to talk to in the world…fewer and fewer, and less and less trust. But my love of and faith in God remain in tact…my love and faith in people is waning big.

loving Jesus, please I pray for this request
Our father who art in heaven
Hallowed be your name
Your kingdom come
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us
Lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil
Amen

Praying hard.

Eternal God , in whom mercy is endless,
and the treasury of compassion inexhastible ,
look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us ,
that in difficult moments we might not despair
nor become despondent , but with great confidence ,
submit ourselves to Your Holy Will ,
which is love and mercy itself . Amen

Memorare (Prayer to Our Lady)
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen
