Novena to The Most Blessed Infant Jesus of Prague
O dearest Jesus, tenderly loving us, your greatest joy is to dwell amoung us and to bestow your blessings upon us.
Though we are not worthy that you should behold us with your love, we feel drawn to you, O dear Infant Jesus, because you gladly pardon us and exercise your almighty power over us.
So many who turned with confidence to you have received graces and had their petitions granted.
Behold us, in spirit we kneel before your miraculous image on your altar in Prague, and lay open our hearts to you, with our prayers, hopes and especially with the petitions that you may grant an increase of vocations to the priesthood and religious life and those which we hold in the silence of our hearts.
mention your petitions
Govern us and do with us according to your holy will, for we know that in your divine wisdom and love you ordain everything for the best.
Almighty and gracious Infant Jesus, do not withdraw your hand from us, but protect and bless us forever.
We pray to you, most holy Infant, in the name of your Blessed Mother Mary who cared for you with such tenderness, and by the great reverence with which Saint Joseph carried you in his arms, comfort us and make us happy that we may bless and thank you forever from all our hearts. Amen.
O miraculous Infant Jesus, here present before your sacred image, we beseech you to look with mercy on us. Let your tender Heart, so inclined to pity, be softened at our prayers, and grant us that grace for which we ardently implore you. Take from us all affliction and despair, all trials and misfortunes with which we are laden. For your sacred Infancy's sake hear our prayers and send us consolation and aid, that we may praise you, with the Father and the Holy Spirit, forever and ever.
