Day 9 - Saint Francis of Assisi Novena:
We made it to the last day of the Saint Francis of Assisi Novena! Thank you for joining us in prayer!
Today let's pray once more for Pope Francis who was inspired by Saint Francis, and let's pray for the Church -- especially all those in the Franciscan order.
Let's also pray for one another, and whatever special intentions you have had during this novena.
Here are the novena prayers for today:
Holy Saint Francis, through your kind intercession we seek holiness above all things. We seek the faith, hope and love that allowed you to joyfully renounce the pleasures of earthly life and to radically follow our Lord Jesus Christ.
Pray for us that we enjoy the privilege of suffering with and for the poor in the example of Jesus. Help us to be always grateful for all the blessings we have received and the strength to overcome our most pressing concerns, especially...
(Mention your intentions here)
Almighty Father, through the kind intercession of St. Francis, we humbly ask for the grace to be free of the fears and anxieties that beset us, especially (repeat your special intentions and requests here).
May we be relieved of the causes of our distress, that we may be able to better serve as the instruments of your Divine Purpose on earth.
St. Francis, help us in praying for the grace to truly repent for our sins and actively seek reconciliation with God. May the blessings we obtain through your intercession deepen our faith, and inspire us to store treasures in Heaven, where we hope to spend eternity with the Almighty Father.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end.
St. Francis of Assisi, Pray for us!
