This novena prayer may be said at any time, but especially in the nine days leading up to Shrove Tuesday, which is the Feast of the Holy Face.
For the intention of the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts. For Crusaders: Bernadette Szcepowski, Molly A., and Gemma (Sunny -Gem). For all bishops, priests and religious of Tradition.
O Lord Jesus Christ, in presenting ourselves before Thine adorable Face to ask of Thee the graces of which we stand in most need, we beseech Thee above all to grant us that interior disposition of never refusing at any time to do what Thou requirest of us by Thy holy commandments and divine inspirations.
O Good Jesus, Who has said, "Ask and ye shall receive, seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be opened to you." Grant us, Dear Lord, that faith which obtains all or supply in us that which is deficient; grant us, by the pure effect of Thy charity and for Thy eternal glory, the graces which we need and for which we look to Thy infinite mercy. +Amen
Be merciful to us, O my God, and reject not our prayers, when amid our afflictions, we call upon Thy Holy Name and seek with love and confidence Thine adorable Face.
