Day 7 - Christmas Novena Prayers:
Today, let us pray for all parents and godparents. They have an important role in bringing up a child who is brought into the world.
Just like the Lord was presented in the temple, our children are presented in the Church for Baptism. There, parents and godparents take on the responsibility for bringing up a child in the faith.
So, today we pray for all parents and godparents. We pray also for those children who have no one to present them in the Church for Baptism. We pray that God will eventually bring them to His family and that they may be welcomed with open arms!
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.
O most sweet infant Jesus, presented in the temple
by the Virgin Mary, embraced by Simeon, and revealed
to the Jews by Anna the prophetess.
Have mercy on us.
Have mercy on us, O 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.
