A miraculous prayer to the Infant Jesus
One of the very well-known devotions is certainly that of the Infant Jesus of Prague. The beautiful statue of the Infant Jesus is still to be found in many homes, convents and other places around the globe.
It was the Carmelite priest, Venerable Cyril of the Mother of God, who restored the statue of the Infant Jesus due to the fact that it was extremely damaged. During the process of resotoration this holy priest experienced his very own internal restoration thanks to the a private revelation given to him by the Blessed Virgin Mary in 1637.
During this private revelation the Mother of God gave to the Venerable Cyril a powerful prayer to the Infant Jesus. Experience constantly shows the efficaciousness of this prayer up to the point that it was handed down through the centuries and keeps being an essential reference point within the history and praxis of the devotion to the Infant Jesus. Here is the prayer in case you might pray it in your own of need to the Infant Jesus.
O Child Jesus, I have recourse to You through Your Holy Mother; I implore You to assist me in this necessity, for I firmly believe that Your Divinity can assist me. I confidently hope to obtain Your holy grace. I love You with my whole heart and my whole soul. I am heartily sorry for my sins, and entreat You, O good Jesus, to give me strength to overcome them.I am firmly resolved never to offend You again and to suffer everything rather than displease You. Henceforth, I wish to serve You faithfully. For love of You, O divine Child, I will love my neighbor as myself. O Jesus, omnipotent Child, I entreat You again to come to my assistance in this necessity. [Mention it here].Grant me the grace of possessing You eternally with Mary and Joseph and of adoring You with Your Holy Angels and Saints. Amen.
