Nov 30 to Christmas
Prayer to ObtainFavors
blessed be the hour and moment in which the Son of God was born of the most
pure Virgin Mary, at midnight, in Bethlehem, in piercing cold. In that hour,
vouchsafe, O my God! to hear my prayer and grant my desires, through the
merits of Our Saviour Jesus Christ, and of His Blessed Mother. Amen.
(It is traditionally believed that whoever recites the above prayer fifteen
times a day from the feast of St. Andrew (30th November) until Christmas
will obtain what is asked.)

Prayer to the Infant of Prague
miraculous Infant Jesus, prostrate before your sacred image, we beseech you
to cast a merciful look on our troubled hearts. Let your tender heart, so
inclined to pity, be softened by our prayers, and grant us that grace for
which we ardently implore you. Take from us all affliction and despair, all
trials and misfortunes with which we are laden. For your Sacred Infancy's
sake hear our prayers and send us consolation and aid, that we may praise
you with the Father and the Holy Spirit forever and ever. Amen.
Divine Infant Jesus, I know You love me and would never leave me. I thank
You for Your close Presence in my life.
Miraculous Infant, I believe in Your promise of peace, blessings, and
freedom from want. I place every need and care in Your hands.
Lord Jesus, may I always trust in Your generous mercy and love. I want to
honor and praise You, now and forever. Amen.
