PRAYERS

 
There are many variations to this novena prayer.  This is the version that I use.  It is from a very old holy card. 

Powerful Novena of Childlike Confidence

(This novena should be said at the same time every hour for nine hours for one day.)
(Prayer of Thanksgiving follows below.)
O Jesus, Who hast said, ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened to you, through the intercession of Mary, Thy Most Holy Mother, I knock, I seek, I ask that my prayer be granted.
(Make your request.)

O Jesus, Who hast said, all that you ask 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 be granted. 
(Make your request.)

O Jesus, Who has said, "Heaven and earth shall pass away but My Word shall not pass," through the intercession of Mary, Thy Most Holy Mother, I feel confident that my prayer will be granted.
(Make your request.)
(Remember to say a prayer of thanksgiving.)
(There is another novena below.) 

Prayer of Thanksgiving for Graces Received from the Infant Jesus
(Taken from the book, Devotion To the Infant Jesus of Prague which is available through TAN BOOKS.)


   I prostrate myself before Your holy image, O most gracious Jesus, to offer You my most fervent thanks for the blessings You have bestowed on me.  I shall incessantly praise Your ineffable mercy and confess that You alone are my God, my helper, and my protector.  Henceforth my entire confidence shall be placed in You!  Everywhere I will proclaim aloud Your mercy and generosity, so that Your great love and the great deeds which You perform through this miraculous image may be ackowledged by all.  May devotion to Your holy infancy increase more and more in the hearts of all Christians, and may all who experience Your assistance persevere with me in showing unceasing gratitude to Your most holy infancy, to which be praise and glory forever. Amen.


******************************************
Private Novena In Honor of the Infant Jesus of Prague
("This private novena may be made in your church or at home, before a statue or picture of the Infant of Prague, on any nine (9) successive days, especially from the 16th to the 24th of any month, and in particular in December before the Feast of the Nativity of Christ the Infant.")
 
O Miraculous Infant Jesus! Prostrate before Thy sacred image, we beseech Thee to cast a merciful look on our troubled hearts.  Let Thy tender Heart so inclined to pity, be softened by our prayers, and grant us that grace for which we ardently implore Thee.  Take from us all affliction and despair, all trials and misfortunes with which we are laden.  For Thy sacred infancy's sake hear our prayers and send us consolation and aid, that we may praise Thee, with the Father and Holy Ghost, forever and ever.  Amen.
