Amazing novena for stopping abortion (Infant Jesus Novena)


#1

There is an amazing story that goes with this novena. As I don’t know the full details it will be as accurate as I can;)
(names are made up)

A woman called Anita was having an abortion and it was to be at 3:00 on Tuesday, Sept. 12th. Anita’s friend, Sam, was worried about this and spoke to a priest, Fr. John, about it.


A lady called Helen was with her non-Catholic husband in confession with Fr. John. Helen had cancer and only had a short time to live. At the end of confession, Helen as Fr. John, “Is there anything I can do?” and he said, "There is a woman due to have an abortion on the 12th Sept. at 3:00. Pray this novena for her."
Then, her non-Catholic husband said, "I’m not a Catholic, but can I pray it too?"
And so he did.

Sept. 12th came.

3:00 went past…


That evening, Fr. John received a call from Sam, Anita’s friend.

“Anita changed her mind. She did not go through with the abortion.”

Shortly after, he received another call, but from Helen’s husband.

“Helen died at 3:00, Father.”


NOW here is the Novena:

NOVENA TO THE CHILD JESUS

DAY 1

O Sweet Child Jesus, here at Your feet is a soul that, conscious of its nothingness turns to You, who are all. I have so much need of Your help. Look on me O! Jesus, with love since You are all powerful, help me in my poverty.

Our Father…Hail Mary…Glory Be…

By your Divine Infancy, O! Jesus, grant the grace that I now ask (Express it) if it is according to Your will and for my true good. Do not look upon my unworthiness, but rather on my faith and show me Your infinite mercy.

Day 2

O Splendour of the heavenly Father, in whose face shines the light of the divinity. I adore You profoundly and I confess You a the true Son of the living God. I offer You, O Lord, the humble homage of all my being, Grant that I may never separate myself from You, my highest goal.

Pray the PURPLE response

Day 3

O Holy Child Jesus, in gazing upon Your countenance, from which comes the most beautiful of smiles, I feel myself filled with a lively trust. Yes. I hope for all from Your goodness. Shed, O Jesus, on me and on those dear to me Your smile of grace and I will praise Your infinite mercy.

Pray the PURPLE response

Day 4

O Child Jesus, whose forehead is adorned with a crown, I accept You as my absolute sovereign, I do not wish to serve any longer the evil one, my passions, or sin. Reign, O Jesus over this poor heart and make it all Yours forever.

Pray the PURPLE response

DAY 5

I gaze upon You, O Most Sweet Redeemer, dressed in a mantle of purple. It is Your royal attire. How it speaks to me of blood! That Blood which You have shed solely on my account. Grant, O Child Jeus that I may respond to Your great sacrifice and not refuse when You offer me some difficulty to suffer with You and for You.

Pray the PURPLE response

Pray the PURPLE response

Day 7

On Your breast, O Child Jesus, shines a Cross. It is a standard of our redemption. I also, O Divine Saviour, have my cross, that, although light, very often weighs me down. Help me to bear it and may the carrying of it be fruitful. You well know how weak and worthless I am.

Pray the PURPLE response

Day 8

Together with the cross, I see on Your breast, O Child Jesus, a little golden heart. It is the image of Your heart, which is truly golden on account of its infinite tenderness. You are the true friend, that generously gives Himself; even immolates Himself, for the one He loves, Continue to pour out on me. O Jesus, the enthusiasm which Your love inspires and teach me to respond always to Your great love.

Pray the PURPLE response

Day 9

How many blessings, O Little Child has Your almighty right hand poured out on those who honour You and call upon You. Bless me also, O Child Jesus, my soul, my body and my interests. Bless and help me in my necessities, and grant me what I now desire. Listen with compassion to my prayers and I will bless Your Holy Name everyday.

Pray the PURPLE response

Little Therese:

When posting a Novena - Try posting each day’s prayers the night before, and ask for responses and Scriptures. That keeps it active and near the top of the list:

From your post:

Day 2

O Splendor of the heavenly Father, in whose face shines the light of the divinity. I adore You profoundly and I confess You the true Son of the living God. I offer You, O Lord, the humble homage of all my being, Grant that I may never separate myself from You, my highest goal.

Scripture for the Day:

Psalm 139:13-16

For Thou didst form my inward parts,
Thou didst knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise Thee, for Thou art fearful and wonderful.
Wonderful are Thy works!
Thou knowest me right well;
my frame was not hidden from Thee,
when I was being made in secret,
intricately wrought in the depths of the earth
Thy eyes beheld my unformed substance;
in Thy book were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there was none of them.

Psalm 139:13-16 RSV
