Question Infant Jesus of Prague Novena

Hi all,

I'm considering praying this Novena over the next 9 days for an urgent intention, but I have a question before I begin.

What are the exact words of the Novena? I've been researching it on the web, but every site I go to has a different listing of the Novena. What's the most offical way to pray this?

Also, I can do this over 9 days right? Because I also read it can be done over 9 consecutive hours.

If I do choose to do the 9 consecutive hours, I say it at the top of each hour, correct?

Thank you in advance,
coolduude

Ok so I pray those 3 smaller prayers for 9 days straight, or the top of the hour for 9 hours straight, right?

But when do I pray the Thanksgiving prayer? After I finish the Novena for good?

By the way, thank you for providing the correct wording

Hello,
I just wanted to vouch for the powerfulness of this Novena. My friends small son was scheduled for surgery to open up his trachea and she decided to do the 9 hour Novena to the Infant of Prague. I witnessed her do this. At the hour she pulled out her prayer card and quietly recited the prayer.
Her son was miraculously cured and never needed surgery and is a happy healthy boy.

I'm not sure if I'm the "right" person to answer your question. You may have to ask someone with a bit more knowledge like Brother J R.

I'm sure Our Lord (Infant of Prague) won't mind you praying the Novena for 9 days rather than 9 hours...It's entirely up to you and Him.

You can pray the "thanksgiving prayer" after you're Novena or whenever you like.

Please keep in mind that sometimes God will say, "No" and sometimes God will tell you, "to be patient and wait."

Remember, that Novena's do not ask you to make a wish.

Below is a list of websites the first two are on the Infant Jesus of Prague Novena
