infantjesus-prague1The feast of the Infant of Prague  January 14
Appeal to the Infant of Prague in times of desperation, to stop an epidemic or for abundance
Few novenas promise the instantaneous results of those to the Infant of Prague. It necessitates a suspension of all doubt as it is completed in one day over a nine-hour time span. Perhaps the most invoked aspect of Christ in the world, this novena promises that anything is possible for those who believe. Christ is presented as both a kindly child and a king. The Infant of Prague is a statue of the child Jesus dressed in actual clothing. Instead of the modest garments of a poor child, he is wearing the sumptuous gown of royalty. Because the Infant of Prague looks like a little doll, we are welcome to approach him with the open faith of a child. Reflecting the faith of Jesus, the novena requires an intensity of devotion. Many people have a version of this statue in their homes, as it is said to guarantee abundance. This novena, frequently utilized by those in financial difficulties, can be said during any desperate situation.
Divine Infant of Prague, dearest Jesus, you who so lovingly said,
“Ask and it shall be given you; seek and you shall find;
knock and it shall be opened to you,” have mercy on me now,
and through the intercession of our most holy Mother,
I humbly ask you to grant me the grace I need.
(Mention your request)
Divine Infant of Prague, dearest Jesus, you who so compassionately taught,
“If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes,”
have pity on me now. I do believe; help me.
Increase my weak faith through the Blessed Mother’s intercession.
I humbly ask you to answer my request.
(Mention your request)
Divine Infant of Prague, dearest Jesus, you who once said to the Apsotles:
“If you have faith like a mustard seed, you will say to the mulberry tree,
‘Be uprooted and be planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.”
Hear my prayer, I humbly ask.
Through the intercession of Mary most holy,
I feel certain that my prayer will be answered.
(Mention your request)
Because this novena is said for those in great distress or emergency situations, it is completed in one day.
Say this novena nine times in a row at the same time every hour for nine consecutive hours.
