Day 3 - Pope Benedict's Birthday Novena

t's the Lord's day and it's time to pray... for the Pope! His birthday is coming up soon and he needs all the prayers he can get. Today, let us pray for peace. Our Holy Father is constantly reminding the world to pray for and work for peace. He is at times the lone voice for peace among world leaders. So, today let us pray together with thousands of the faithful for his intention of peace for the world but also for God's peace to rest in the heart of Pope Benedict.

Novena Prayers

Prince of Peace, we come to you today to ask for your grace of peace for our Holy Father. There are many problems in the world and in the Church that he must address everyday. We beg you for peace in the world, peace in our hearts as we face the brokenness of a fallen world and peace for the Pope as he shepherds your Church.

Heavenly father, Your Providence guides the Church and the successor to St. Peter, Pope Benedict XVI. May he be protected at all times from spiritual attacks so that he may lead Your Church to greater holiness and unity through your Holy Spirit.

Lord, source of eternal life and truth, give to your shepherd, Benedict XVI, a spirit of courage and right judgment, a spirit of knowledge and love. By governing with fidelity those entrusted to his care, may he, as successor to the Apostle Peter and the Vicar of Christ, build your Church into a sacrament of unity, love and peace for all the world.
[Insert your personal petitions for the Pope here]
Let us pray for Benedict, the pope.
May the Lord preserve him,
give him a long life,
make him blessed upon the earth,
and not hand him over
to the power of his enemies.
May your hand be upon your holy servant.
And upon your son, whom you have anointed.
Our Father …
Hail Mary …
Glory Be …
