There is a Catholic devotion known as a novena.

This is the recitation of a prayer or prayers, for a specific intention(s) done a in public or
a private setting for an extended period of time, usually nine days or nine weeks.

I have included some that all Christians can use.

Novena of confidence

O Lord Jesus Christ, to your most Sacred Heart,
I confide this/these intention:

(mention your intention - pray for 9 days)

Only look upon me, And then do
What your Sacred Heart inspires.

Let your Sacred Heart decide I count on it, I trust in it
I throw myself on Your mercy, Lord Jesus!
You will not fail me.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in You.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, I believe in Your love for me.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, Your Kingdom come.

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I have asked you for many favors,
But I earnestly implore this one. Take it.

Place it in Your open, broken Heart; and, when the Eternal Father looks upon It,
covered with Your Precious Blood, He will not refuse it.

It will be no longer my prayer, But Yours, O Jesus.

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in You.
Let me not be disappointed.


Yours in Christ,
Maria 玛丽亚
