The 9-hour novena to the Infant Jesus of Prague is often said for an urgent need and many can attest to its efficacy.

Many Catholics are familiar with the concept of a novena, which involves praying for nine consecutive days for a particular intention. While this is often very effective, some are in need of a more urgent response from God, and turn to a 9-hour novena prayed in a single day.

The novena can also be prayed for nine consecutive days, but most pray this for nine hours. There is no guarantee you will get exactly what you are praying for, but God always answers our prayers. It may not be what we expect, but we always receive a response.

The key is to pray the 9-hour novena with faith and trust in God, letting God decide how best to respond to your prayer.

9-Hour Novena Prayer

O Jesus, Who has said, “Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened,” through the intercession of Mary, Your Most Holy Mother, I knock, I seek, I ask that my prayer be granted.

(Make your request)

O Jesus, Who has said, “All that you ask of the Father in My Name, He will grant you,” through the intercession of Mary Your Most Holy Mother, I humbly and urgently ask your Father in your name that my prayer will be granted.

(Make your request)

O Jesus, Who has said, “Heaven and earth shall pass away but My word shall not pass away,” through the intercession of Mary Your Most Holy Mother, I feel confident that my prayer will be granted.

(Make your request)

PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING

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.
