betonolpsBEFORE THE ICON OF OUR MOTHER OF PEPETUAL SUCCOUR

NOVENA PRAYER FOR CHILDREN

Dear God, our Father, I thank you for sending Jesus to be my brother and Mary to be my mother in heaven. In this beautiful picture I am reminded that Mary wants to help me and pray with me. Dear Mary, I remember how you were always ready to look after people who needed you and how much you loved Jesus and suffered with him. Please help me to be like you and look after all those people who need my help. Please pray with me for those who are close to me – my family and my friends – and all those who need my prayers. I make this prayer to you, God our Father, through your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

 

(Think of those people you want to pray for especially. If you wish, you can write down your prayer and place it in the Petition Box and you may also include a 'thank you' note.)

PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING

 

Dear God, our Father, thank you for all the good things I have in my life. Make me grateful when things go well and for the things I can do well. Help me to be patient when things are difficult and I am struggling. I know that Mary always wants to help me with her prayers so that I may never forget how much you and your Son, Jesus, love me. Amen.
