From all evil, **

From all sin, **

 

From all distrust of Thine infinite goodness, **

From all doubts about Thy miraculous power, **

From all lukewarmness in worshipping Thee, **

From all want and need, **

By all the mysteries of Thy Holy childhood, **

We poor sinners pray to Thee, hear us.

Through the help of Mary, Thy Virgin Mother, and Joseph, Thy foster father, ***

That Thou wouldst bring us to true repentance, ***

That Thou wouldst forgive us our sins, ***

That Thou wouldst absolve us from punishment for our sins, ***

That Thou wouldst preserve and increase in us love and devotion to Thy holy Infancy, ***

That Thou wouldst never withdraw Thy merciful hand from us, ***

That Thou wouldst keep us eternally grateful for the many graces we have received, ***

That Thou wouldst move us more and more to love Thy divine Heart, ***

That Thou wouldst graciously hear all who call upon Thee with confidence, ***

That Thou wouldst preserve peace for our country, ***

That Thou wouldst deliver us from any evil that threatens us, ***

That Thou wouldst repay with eternal life those who are generous toward Thee, ***

That Thou wouldst grant us blessings at the hour of death, ***

That Thou wouldst pronounce a merciful sentence on us at the Judgment, ***

That Thou wouldst remain our comfort through Thy holy image, ***

Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world, spare us, O Infant Jesus.

Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world, graciously hear us, O Infant Jesus.

Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us, O Infant Jesus.

V. Infant Jesus, hear us.

R. Infant Jesus, graciously hear us.

Recite the Our Father...

* Have mercy on us.

** deliver us, O Infant Jesus

*** We pray Thee, please hear us.

Let us pray

O Miraculous Infant Jesus, prostrate before Thy sacred image, we beseech Thee to look mercifully upon our troubled hearts. Let Thy tender Heart, so inclined to pity, be softened at our prayers, and grant us that grace for which we ardently implore Thee. Take from us all affliction and despair, all trials and misfortunes with which we are laden. For Thy sacred Infancy's sake, hear our prayers and send us consolation and aid, that we may praise Thee, with the Father and the Holy Spirit, forever and ever. Amen.
