Novena Prayers

Dearest Saint Therese of Lisieux, you said that you would spend your time in heaven doing good on earth.

Your trust in God was complete. Pray that He may increase my trust in His goodness and mercy as I ask for the following petitions…

(State your intentions)

Pray for me that I, like you, may have great and innocent confidence in the loving promises of our God. Pray that I may live my life in union with God’s plan for me, and one day see the Face of God whom you loved so deeply.

Saint Therese, you were faithful to God up until the moment of your death. Pray for me that I may be faithful to our loving God. May my life bring peace and love to the world through faithful endurance in love for God our savior.

Also pray that my husband craig and I Christine and Makayla and my mom and my sister’s families will be protected from getting sick as well since we are exposure to everyone and everything, protect and keep us well, as we all have been sick and around people that sick, so I pray for all of us to be healthy and stay that way. I pray for my husband to get a job promotion, with better pay and stay close to home. I pray for me to get more house and more work for meg so I can continue to work for her.
