Day 1 - The St. Therese of Lisieux Novena

Sunday, September 23, 2018

Now onto the novena...

St. Therese is well known for answering prayers in spectacular ways :)

Before she died, she spoke about how she would spend her time in heaven by doing good on earth.

She said, "When I die, I will send down a shower of roses from the heavens."

Since her death, many roses have been rained down :) Sometimes roses literally appeared, and sometimes just the fragrance of them. In any case, roses have become her signature.

And yet, many miracles have happened and prayers have been answered without any roses appearing. It's the grace of her praying for us, and Jesus listening and working in our lives, that matters most...

Now today, we would like to pray specifically for the intentions of everyone joining us in prayer here through Pray More Novenas. You can see their intentions and share your own here:

Here are the prayers for today:

Day 1 - The St. Therese of Lisieux Novena
(Audio/Video Version)

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

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 even unto 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.

Loving God, you blessed St. Therese with a capacity for a great love. Help me to believe in your unconditional love for each of your children, especially for me.

I love you, Lord. Help me to love you more!

Glory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.


In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
