Consecrate your Family and Home to the Sacred Heart of Jesus with this Enthronement Prayer to Share!

The Sacred Heart of Jesus, is especially celebrated on the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart (the Friday after the second Sunday following Pentecost) is celebrated on June 28, 2019.
Traditionally, “enthronement,” or “consecration” prayers of your house (family and heart) to Jesus are said. Jesus promised to Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque that, “I will bless the homes where an image of My Heart shall be exposed and honored.” Thus, enthronement consists of reciting the prayer and placing an image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in one's home.  This is especially powerful against Evil which can attack the people of God in their homes.
Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque wrote this special prayer of consecration
O Sacred Heart of Jesus, to Thee I consecrate and offer up my person and my life, my actions, trials, and sufferings, that my entire being may henceforth only be employed in loving, honoring and glorifying Thee. This is my irrevocable will, to belong entirely to Thee, and to do all for Thy love, renouncing with my whole heart all that can displease Thee.
I take Thee, O Sacred Heart, for the sole object of my love, the protection of my life, the pledge of my salvation, the remedy of my frailty and inconstancy, the reparation for all the defects of my life, and my secure refuge at the hour of my death. Be Thou, O Most Merciful Heart, my justification before God Thy Father, and screen me from His anger which I have so justly merited. I fear all from my own weakness and malice, but placing my entire confidence in Thee, O Heart of Love, I hope all from Thine infinite Goodness. Annihilate in me all that can displease or resist Thee. Imprint Thy pure love so deeply in my heart that I may never forget Thee or be separated from Thee.
I beseech Thee, through Thine infinite Goodness, grant that my name be engraved upon Thy Heart, for in this I place all my happiness and all my glory, to live and to die as one of Thy devoted servants. Amen. 
Another Form: Act of Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus (by Pope Pius Xi)
Most sweet Jesus,  Redeemer of the human race, 
look down upon us, 
humbly prostrate before Thine altar.

We are Thine and Thine we wish to be; 
but to be more surely united with Thee, 
behold each one of us freely consecrates himself today 
to Thy Most Sacred Heart.

Many, indeed, have never known Thee; 
many, too, despising Thy precepts, 
have rejected Thee.

Have mercy on them all, 
most merciful Jesus, 
and draw them to Thy Sacred Heart.

Be Thou King, O Lord, 
not only of the faithful who have never forsaken Thee, 
but also of the prodigal children who have abandoned Thee, 
grant that they may quickly return to their Father's house, 
lest they die of wretchedness and hunger.

Be Thou King of those who are deceived by erroneous opinions, 
or whom discord keeps aloof 
and call them back to the harbour of truth and unity of faith, 
so that soon there may be but one flock and one shepherd.

Be Thou King of all those who even now sit in the shadow of idolatry or Islam, 
and refuse not Thou to bring them into the light of Thy kingdom. 
Look, finally, with eyes of pity upon the children of that race, 
which was for so long a time Thy chosen people; 
and let Thy Blood, which was once invoked upon them in vengeance, 
now descend upon them also in a cleansing flood of redemption and eternal life.

Grant, O Lord, to Thy Church, 
assurance of freedom and immunity from harm; 
give peace and order to all nations, 
and make the earth resound 
from pole to pole with one cry:
Praise to the Divine Heart
that wrought our salvation:
to it be glory 
and honour forever. Amen
