Novena to Infant Jesus

This novena to Infant Jesus is a powerful prayer in urgent need.  Usually it is said by the hour for nine hours.  You can also say it for nine consecutive days at the same time each day.

missionary work in Vanimo, James on right

This page is dedicated for a little boy named James. Our daughter and her friend met James and his twin brother William during their missionary work in Vanimo, Papua New Guinea.

Little James was diagnosed with tuberculosis a few months after their return from missionary work.

Our daughter said that William and James were the most joyful little boys they met. You may see more photos at the bottom of this page.

SSVM sisters in Vanimo, with James

James and William were raised with lots of love by the SSVM missionary sisters in Vanimo. However as the sisters run a safe home only for girls, they had to let go of the twin babies who were since raised by their God mother in the village. 

The sisters keep contact with the family and the little boys are very much like their own children. We ask you to keep the sisters in your prayers too.

We invite you to join us in this special novena to Infant Jesus asking for urgent cure of James, if it is God's will. (This novena is to be prayed for 9 days at the same time).

Thank you for your generosity in prayer.

Prayer of Thanksgiving for graces received from the Infant Jesus of Prague

I prostrate myself before your holy image, o most gracious infant Jesus, to offer you my most fervent thanks for the blessings you have bestowed on me.

I shall incessantly praise your ineffable mercy and confess that you alone are my god, my helper, and my protector.

Henceforth my entire confidence shall be placed in you !

Everywhere I will proclaim aloud your mercy and generosity, so that your great love and the great deeds which you perform through this miraculous image may be acknowledged by all.

May devotion to your most holy infancy increase more and more in the hearts of all Christians, and may all who experience your assistance persevere with me in showing unceasing gratitude to your most holy infancy, to which be praise and glory forever.
