Another Novena PrayerInfant of Prague (2)

Dearest Jesus, Little Infant of Prague, how tenderly You love us! Your greatest joy is to dwell among us and to bestow Your blessing upon us. Though I am not worthy that You should help me, I feel drawn to You by love because You are kind and merciful.

So many who turned to You with confidence have received graces and had their petitions granted. Behold me as I come before You to lay open my heart to You with its prayers and hopes. I present to You especially this request, which I enclose in Your loving Heart: (Mention your request).

Rule over me, dear Infant Jesus, and do with me and mine according to Your Holy Will, for I know that in Your Divine Wisdom and Love You will arrange everything for the best. Do not withdraw Your hand from me, but protect and bless me forever.

I pray You, all-powerful and gracious Infant Jesus, for the sake of Your Sacred Infancy, in the Name of Your Blessed Mother Mary who cared for You with such tenderness, and by the greatest reverence with which Saint Joseph carried You in his arms, help me in my needs. Make me truly happy with You, dearest Infant, in time and in eternity, and I shall thank You forever with all my heart. Amen.


Prayer of Pope Benedict XVI to the Infant Jesus of Prague

Lord Jesus,
We see you as a child
and believe that you are the Son of God,
Man is made by the power of the Holy Spirit
in the womb of the Virgin Mary.
As in Bethlehem
We also pray thee with Mary, Joseph,
the angels and the shepherds, and recognize in you our only Redeemer.
You have become poor,
to make us rich with your poverty.
Let us never forget the poor
and the people who are suffering.
Protect our families,
bless all the children of this world
and make that more may reign among us love,
to have you brought us and the
Life can be happier.
Give that all, O Jesus,
recognize the truth of your birth,
so may all know,
that you have come,
to the entire human family
to bring light, joy and peace.
You are God and You live and reign with God the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit
now and forever. Amen.
