Infant Jesus-PRAYER OF THE FAITHFUL – DURING THE NOVENA



Your Response is: LORD JESUS, INCREASE OUR FAITH.
O Infant Jesus, you say to each one of us: Come to me all you who labour and are overburdened and I will give you rest. We come to you - with hearts full of fears and anxieties about our past - and with hopes and aspirations for our future. We believe that our hearts will never find rest until they rest in you, trusting in you, in faith and hope, for this we pray: LORD JESUS, INCREASE OUR FAITH.
        O Infant Jesus, you invite us to be one - as you are one - with the Heavenly Father and the Holy Spirit. We pray for all Christians, who profess to be your disciples, that though we may belong to different Churches, we may live as one Christian community, one in mind and in heart, one in bearing witness to you, by our words and our actions, for this we pray: “LORD JESUS, INCREASE OUR FAITH.
        O Infant Jesus, you reveal that where two or three are gathered in your name, you are present with us. We believe that you are here in your midst - as we assemble during these Novena days - in preparation for the Feast. May our faith in you - be the source of our life and our strength, for this we pray: LORD JESUS, INCREASE OUR FAITH.

We now recite together the Novena Prayer to the Infant Jesus:

        O Jesus, you said, “Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened to you”. Through the intercession of Mary, your Most Holy Mother, I knock, I seek and I ask that my prayer may be granted.                                 (Make your petition)
        O Jesus, you said, “All that you ask of the Father in my name, He will grant you”. Through the intercession of Mary, your Most Holy Mother, I, humbly and urgently, ask your Father in your name, that my prayer be granted.                                         (Make your petition)
        O Jesus, you said, “Heaven and Earth shall pass away, but my Word shall not pass”. Through the intercession of Mary, your Most Holy Mother, I feel confident that my prayer will be granted.                                                                                            (Make your petition)

        LET US PRAY:   O Infant Jesus, we thank You for our many pilgrims, devotees, friends and benefactors, who have come from far and near, who may belong to different religious faiths. We entreat you to bless each and every one of them. Bless each and every one of us gathered here. Grant our prayers. Fill our hearts with Your joy, Your love and Your peace. We make this prayer through You, dear Infant Jesus, Who live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
