Novena Rose Prayer

O Little Therese of the Child Jesus, please pick for me a rose

from the heavenly gardens, and send it to me as a message of love.

O Little Flower of Jesus, ask God to grant the favours

I now place with confidence in your hands...

(mention your request here)

St Therese, help me to always believe in you as you did 

in God's great love for me, so that I may imitate your "Little Way" each day.

Amen

Miraculous Invocation to St Therese

O Glorious St. Therese,

whom Almighty God has raised up to aid

and inspire the human family,

I implore your miraculous intercession.

Youa re so powerful in obtaining every need

of body and spirit from the Heart of God.

Holy Mother Church proclaims you "Prodigy of Miracles ...

the greatest saint of Modern Times."

Now I fervently beseech you to answer my petition

(mention in silence here)

and to carry our your promises of spending

heaven doing good on earth ...

of letting fall from Heaven a Shower of Roses.

Little Flower, give me your childlike faith 

to see the Face of God

in the people and experiences of my life

and to love God with full confidence.

St Therese, my Carmelite Sister,

I will fulfil your plea "to be made known everywhere"

and I will continue to lead others to Jesus through you.

Amen
