Our Lady of Lourdes Novena

About Our Lady of Lourdes

“Mercy is the tangible expression of God's love in the world.-

Saint Bernadette was a young girl gathering firewood in the French town of Lourdes with her sister and a friend when the Virgin Mary appeared to her and spoke to her.

Our Lady appeared to Saint Bernadette a total of 18 times! During these apparitions, Bernadette asked her name and Mary replied: “I am the Immaculate Conception.” Another time, Our lady told Bernadette where to dig to find a miraculous spring. And another time, Mary told Bernadette to build a church at the grotto where she had appeared to her.

The image of Mary at Lourdes is known as Our Lady of Lourdes, Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception and Our Lady of the Rosary.

The water from the miraculous spring has cured and healed many people ever since. Millions of pilgrims go to Lourdes to see the place where Mary appeared and to bathe in the spring to be healed and blessed.

Our Lady of Lourdes Novena Prayers

Our Lady of Lourdes, we come to you like little Bernadette at the grotto. We pray with childlike trust in you.

Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, when you appeared in Lourdes, you made it a holy sanctuary where many have obtained the cure of their infirmities, both spiritual and corporal. We pray me with confidence for your holy intercession.

(State your intentions here)

Holy Mother of the Rosary, we feel confident that your prayers on our behalf will be graciously heard by God.

Day 1: Immaculate Mother, show us your mercy, O Mother of God.
Day 2: Immaculate Mother, comfort us in our affliction.
Day 3: Immaculate Mother, pray that we may have hope in times of trial.
Day 4: Immaculate Mother, pray for the grace of God to be our strength.
Day 5: Immaculate Mother, pray that we may reach the consolation of heaven.
Day 6: Immaculate Mother, manifest in us your sweetness and beauty.

Day 8: Immaculate Mother, fill our hearts with love for Jesus and for you.
Day 9: Immaculate Mother, give us what your motherly heart sees we need at this moment.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence, we fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, our mother; to you do we come, before you we stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions, but in your mercy hear and answer us.

  20. Can you please pray for me since back in 2005 a Dr. performed a surgery on me and implanted me with something that like produces heat and blows my belly up as if I am pregnant and maims my body. This was done illegally and the Dr. was paid by the same people who killed my mother, namely my uncles who hired the NY Mafia. I can not have kids anymore since now I am 47 and this technique has hurt my egg reserve and is hurting me everyday. Someone in the middle of the night turns this machinery on, This is obviously the work of the devil and demonic spirits and I need prayer to get to the right Dr. who can take this out of my body. Apparently targeted individuals implant people to harm them and track them and really all this is very sick and inhumane. Please I need as many people to pray for me that the people who did this to me be brought to justice. Thank you.

  69. My special prayer request is to Saint Pedro Pio.  I’ve just found out about this saint for motherhood and pregnancy.  I pray our daughter does not suffer any more baby losses and pray she gets to experience the miracle of carrying and delivering a child.
    She has had one stillbirth,  a late miscarriage and a medical extraction due to multiple defects and failure to thrive. Medically, we almost lost our daughter on all three occasions.  She has tried several IUI’s and IVF procedures to no avail.  It has been very discouraging, both physically and emotionally, for her and her husband.  She is older in age now and has given up.  I don’t want to give up, I want to believe there is hope.

    Thank you and God bless.
