Beginning Friday, February 5th, pray the novena prayer each day. Confession before Saturday, February 13th is recommended.
O dearest Jesus, tenderly loving us, your greatest joy is to dwell among 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.
We ask that we become little, small, and humble and for a special grace to become holy. (You may also add private 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 St. 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.
