Novena Prayers for Pope Benedict-Day 5:
We will be praying another whole novena for the conclave and the election of the next Pope.
Today I'd still like to pray for the Pope's intentions and particularly for his prayer for the election of the next Pope.
Here are the novena prayers for today:
Day 5 - Novena Prayers for Pope Benedict
Jesus, we pray for our beloved Pope and for his intentions. We pray for his personal intentions and for his recent decision to retire. That Your will be done through the election of his successor.
[Insert your intentions and personal petitions for the Pope here]
Prayer for the Pope:
Let us pray for Benedict, the Pope.
May the Lord preserve him,
give him a long life,
make him blessed upon the earth,
and not hand him over
to the power of his enemies.
May Your hand be upon Your holy servant.
And upon Your son, whom You have anointed.
Closing: The Prayer of St. Benedict
Gracious and holy Father,
please give to our Pope and
to us the faithful:
intellect to understand You;
reason to discern You;
diligence to seek You;
wisdom to find You;
a spirit to know You;
a heart to meditate upon You;
ears to hear You;
eyes to see You;
a tongue to proclaim You;
a way of life pleasing to You;
patience to wait for You;
and perseverance to look for You.
Grant Your servant the
Pope and us the faithful:
a perfect end,
Your holy presence.
A blessed resurrection,
And life everlasting.
