Day 6 - Christmas Novena Prayers:
Today we meditate on the 'Adoration of the Kings.' The three kings came to worship the child Jesus. They set out on their journey seeking this new born King of Kings.
Today, let us pray that in the same way, the leaders and 'wise men' of today will seek out Jesus and adore him. And, as we pray for an end to abortion in this Christmas Novena, let us pray that our leaders may also respect and protect the life of the little ones who are made in God's image.
I'd like to especially pray for the leaders in countries where there are efforts to expand abortion. May God preserve the people and their leaders from the scourge of abortion.
Here are the novena prayers for today:
V. O God, come to my assistance.
R. O Lord, make haste to help me.
Glory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
Our Father, Who art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
The Adoration of the Kings
O most sweet infant Jesus, who was made known
to the three kings, who worshiped you as you lie on
Mary's breast, and offered you the mystical presents
of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
Have mercy on us.
Have mercy on us, 0 Lord. Have mercy on us.
Hail Mary, Full of Grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of our death.
