Peace be with you!
Today is the first day of the Immaculate Conception Novena!
It’s time to pray!
I’m looking forward to seeing the things that God does through this novena. We should all do our best to be open to God’s will and looking for Him even more during this novena.
One of the great things about praying a novena this way is all of the prayer partners you get!
There are about 32,000 people who are joining you and me in praying the Immaculate Conception Novena!
Don’t forget to post your intentions and read and pray for the intentions of the whole community.
Today, I’d like to ask you to pray for all those in need.
Many people suffer material poverty and go un-noticed and un-cared for. Please pray that not only will God provide for them, but that we will provide for them and not take anything for granted in our own lives.
Here are the novena prayers for today:
Day 1 – Immaculate Conception Novena Prayers
O most pure Virgin Mary conceived without sin, from the very first instant, you were entirely immaculate. O glorious Mary full of grace, you are the mother of my God – the Queen of Angels and of men. I humbly venerate you as the chosen mother of my Savior, Jesus Christ.
The Prince of Peace and the Lord of Lords chose you for the singular grace and honor of being his beloved mother. By the power of his Cross, he preserved you from all sin. Therefore, by His power and love, I have hope and bold confidence in your prayers for my holiness and salvation.
I pray first of all that you would make me worthy to call you my mother and your Son, Jesus, my Lord.
I pray that your prayers will bring me to imitate your holiness and submission to Jesus and the Divine Will.
Now, Queen of Heaven, I beg you to beg my Savior to grant me these requests…
(Mention your intentions)
My holy Mother, I know that you were obedient to the will of God. In making this petition, I know that God’s will is more perfect than mine. So, grant that I may receive God’s grace with humility like you.
As my final request, I ask that you pray for me to increase in faith in our risen Lord; I ask that you pray for me to increase in hope in our risen Lord; I ask that you pray for me to increase in love for the risen Jesus!
Thank you for joining me and thousands of others in praying this Immaculate Conception Novena.
