Day 9 - Immaculate Conception Novena Prayers:
Today is the last day of the novena!
If you have had any prayers answered, you can click here to post your experiences.
For this final day, I would like to ask everyone to pray for a very important intention. I want you to pray for yourself.
Not to alleviate your own suffering. We all pray for that all the time :)
Let's pray for the willingness to suffer for the sake of coming closer to Jesus. That is, for holiness.
I want you to pray and ask that God make you a Saint.
This is the most important thing.
It's more important than healing, more important than money, more important than everything because by being holy, you will gain everything in Christ.
How are you to be holy?
Christ gave us two great commandments. Love God. Love others as you love yourself.
It's not easy. Love requires sacrifice. We must be willing to sacrifice. That's why we need Mary's prayers and God's grace!
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!
