I have hosted a Novena of Novenas before. I think it is time I do so again. The conditions for Christians in the Middle East are beyond horrendous! When the photos were released of the Holocaust, the world vowed, never again! Yet, photos are flooding out of the largest and most vicious genocide ever, and our world is waiting and watching in silence.
Syrian Christians are on the cusp of mass slaughter, already displaced and starving, they now face certain death at the hands of ISIS. Am I being over dramatic? I think not. I think that there are no real words to explain to horror. We have been inundated by such horror of late, we are paralyzed, overwhelmed by the onslaught of endless evil and darkness.
I am begging you all to pray a Novena of Novenas for the Christians under attack by ISIS and for a sincere conversion of not only our enemies, but our nation at well. Pray for God to break our hearts and bend our knees. We have no hope left, but our LORD.
Here is how to join in:
Pray the Memorare nine times a day for nine days.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known
that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother;
to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
Pray the St Michael Prayer each day and after every Mass
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.
Pray the Holy Spirit Prayer each morning and night
Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love.
Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the earth.
O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful,
grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations,
Through Christ Our Lord, Amen.
Lastly, share this prayer request as far and wide as you can. We must awaken the giant and begin to fight the evil in our midst. Our world is becoming very dark, let us shine our lights in the darkness!
