Novena of the Little Flower Day 5
Fifth Day: God’s Providence
“Since when has He lost the right to make use of one of His children in order to supply others with the nourishment they need.” – St Therese
In God’s great family some of His children have deserved better of Him than others. These, knowing through Love the will of their Father, ask with confidence and trust for the needs of others. He delights to grant them whatever they ask. Let us tell our needs to St Therese, and let us ask her to obtain for us God’s providential help. “You have said to me, as the Prodigal’s father to his elder son: ‘All I have is yours.’ And therefore I may use Your very words to draw down favours from Our Heavenly Father on all who are dear to me.”
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be….
V. St Therese of the Child Jesus, pray for us.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us Pray
O God, Creator of the world, Who governs all things according to Your Divine Wisdom, grant us through the intercession of St Therese whatever is necessary for our needs in this life that by their right use we may obtain the joy of everlasting happiness. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
St Therese of the Child Jesus, hear our prayers and obtain for us all we ask.
