Novena Prayer To The Infant Jesus

 

In cases of great urgency a novena of nine hours may be made instead of nine days. The prayers should, if possible, be repeated at the same part of the hour, every hour for nine consecutive hours.

O Jesus, Who hast said, “Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you,” through the intercession of Mary, Thy most holy Mother, I knock, I seek, I ask that my prayer will be granted.

(Mention your request)

O Jesus, Who hast said, “All that you ask of the Father in My Name, He will grant you,” through the intercession of Mary, Thy most holy Mother, I humbly and urgently ask Thy Father in Thy Name that my prayer will be granted.

(Mention your request)

O Jesus, Who hast said, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My word shall not pass away,” through the intercession of Mary, Thy most holy Mother, I feel confident that my prayer will be granted.

(Mention your request)

(Then pray the following prayer of thanksgiving.)

Prayer of Thanksgiving To The Infant Jesus
I prostrate myself before Thy holy image, O most gracious Infant Jesus, to offer Thee my most fervent thanks for the blessings Thou hast bestowed upon me. I shall incessantly praise Thine ineffable mercy and confess that Thou alone art my God, my Helper and my Protector. Henceforth my entire confidence shall be placed in Thee! Everywhere I shall proclaim aloud Thy mercy and generosity, so that Thy great love and the great deeds which Thou dost perform through this miraculous image may be acknowledged by all. May devotion to Thy Holy Infancy increase more and more in the hearts of all Christians, and may all who experience Thine assistance persevere with me in showing unceasing gratitude to Thy most holy Infancy, to which be praise and glory forever. Amen.
