Saint Nicholas Novena
Feast Day: December 6
Recite the following for 9 consecutive days
Saint Nicholas, Glorious Confessor of Christ,
Assist us in thy loving kindness.
Glorious Saint Nicholas,
My special Patron from thy throne in glory,
Thou dost enjoy the presence of God,
Turn thine eyes in pity upon me
And attain for me from our Lord
the graces and help that I need
In my spiritual and temporal necessities
(and especially ... state your request, provided that it be profitable to my salvation).
Be mindful likewise,
O Glorious and Saintly Bishop,
Of our Sovereign Pontiff of our Holy Church
And of all Christian people.
Bring back to the right way of salvation all those who are living steeped in sin,
Blinded by darkness of ignorance, error and heresy.
Comfort the afflicted,
Provide the needy.
Strengthen the fearful,
Defend the oppressed,
Give health to the infirm.
Cause all [people] to experience the effects
Of thy powerful intercession
With the supreme giver
Of every good and perfect gift.
Our Father, Who art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with Thee. Blessed art Thou among women and blessed is the fruit of Thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Glory Be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be; World without end. Amen.
Pray for us, Oh Blessed Nicholas,
That we may be worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us Pray,
O God who has glorified Blessed Saint Nicholas,
Thine illustrious Confessor and Bishop,
By means of countless signs and wonder,
And who does not cease daily so to glorify him ,
Grant we beseech thee,
That we, being assisted by his merits and prayers,
Be delivered from the fires of hell
And from all dangers through Christ our Lord.
