Infant of Prague Novena, Day 8

O Miraculous Infant Jesus, prostrate before Your sacred Image, we beseech You to cast a merciful look on our troubled hearts. Let Your tender heart so inclined to pity be softened by our prayers, and grant us that grace which we so ardently implore.
Take from us all affliction and despair, all trials and misfortunes with which we are laden. For Your sacred Infancy’s sake hear our prayers and send us consolation and aid, that we may praise You with the Father and the Holy Spirit forever and ever. Amen.

Adore devoutly the feet of the Infant Jesus, that you may receive merciful judgement.

Hail, O blessed feet of my Infant Jesus! During the lonesome long years You remained unharmed, You were forgotten. But now You are honored and praised to the great fear of Your enemies. Your holy feet walked many thousand steps to find the lost sheep and to bring them back. How many a hard and difficult step did You take for me during the thirty-three years of Your earthly life? I am grateful for every one of them now and forever. Grant that they were not walked in vain.

O Jesus, the Heavenly Father gave You the power and the judgment. Oh, that You could be my merciful, instead of severe, judge. Grant me the mercy to be reminded of the last judgment many times so that I may serve You truly and avoid YOur condemnation. In the name of YOur Holy Infancy, I pray: Do not be my judge; be my Savior.
