Day 1 - Immaculate Conception Novena Prayers:
Today is the first day of the Immaculate Conception Novena!
It's time to pray!
I'm looking forward to seeing the things that God does through this novena. We should all do our best to be open to God's will and looking for Him even more during this novena.
One of the great things about praying a novena this way is all of the prayer partners you get!
There are about 75,000 people who are joining you and me in praying the Immaculate Conception Novena!
I mentioned before that I want to pray this novena for all those who are suffering.
Well, today I want to pray especially for those who are suffering as a result of the recent natural disasters in the Philippines.
This novena is fitting because Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception is the Patroness of the Philippines! (and has been since 1578)
Many members Pray More Novenas are suffering from the Typhoon in the Philippines.
Let's pray for all those who are suffering in the Philippines and especially for those who are part of our prayer community.
Here are the novena prayers for today:
O most pure Virgin Mary conceived without sin, from the very first instant, you were entirely immaculate. O glorious Mary full of grace, you are the mother of my God - the Queen of Angels and of men. I humbly venerate you as the chosen mother of my Savior, Jesus Christ.
The Prince of Peace and the Lord of Lords chose you for the singular grace and honor of being his beloved mother. By the power of his Cross, he preserved you from all sin. Therefore, by His power and love, I have hope and bold confidence in your prayers for my holiness and salvation.
I pray first of all that you would make me worthy to call you my mother and your Son, Jesus, my Lord.
I pray that your prayers will bring me to imitate your holiness and submission to Jesus and the Divine Will.
Now, Queen of Heaven, I beg you to beg my Savior to grant me these requests...
(Mention your intentions)
My holy Mother, I know that you were obedient to the will of God. In making this petition, I know that God's will is more perfect than mine. So, grant that I may receive God's grace with humility like you.
As my final request, I ask that you pray for me to increase in faith in our risen Lord; I ask that you pray for me to increase in hope in our risen Lord; I ask that you pray for me to increase in love for the risen Jesus!
Thank you for joining me and thousands of others in praying this Immaculate Conception Novena.
