Novena Prayer of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux
St. Therese. Flower of fervor and love, please intercede for me.
Fill my heart with your pure love of God.
Make me more aware of the goodness of God
and how well He tends His garden.
Instill in me your “little way” of doing ordinary
things with extra-ordinary love.
Give me the heart of a child who wonders
at life and embraces everything with loving enthusiasm.
Teach me your delight in God’s ways so that divine
charity may blossom in my heart.
Little flower of Jesus, bring my petitions (mention here)
before God our Father. With your confidence, I come
before Jesus as God’s child, because you are my heavenly friend.
