Heavenly Father, I unite with all those around the country who are also praying this novena. I come to you with faith, hope, and trust in the Word of God where Your Son Jesus said, “if two of you agree on earth about anything you ask, it will be done for you by my Father in Heaven.” (Mt. 18:19)
We ask, Father, that you have mercy on the United States of America. We ask that you open our hearts, our eyes, our minds, and our ears to Your Word. We ask that You pour out Your Holy Spirit upon the people of this country. Grant us the gifts of wisdom, understanding, knowledge, piety, fortitude, counsel, and fear of the Lord.
We ask you, Mary, of the Immaculate Conception—the patron Saint of the United States, who the Lord cannot refuse—to intercede for us regarding these intentions. Oh, Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee!
We ask you, St. Michael the Archangel—our celestial chief (Dn. 10:21)—to defend this country and its people with all the power and might given you by God. Stand guard with a battalion of Heavenly angels around the political leaders in every state.
In the Name of Jesus Christ and by the power of His Blood, may Satan be bound, silenced, and immobilized in his work against this country, our Church, and our families.
With souls thus protected and hearts filled with the Holy Spirit, we pray for a great awakening of the Bride of Christ, His Church on earth. We pray that a new multitude returns to the Church with great zeal and love for God. We pray the United States of America will be resurrected as one holy nation under God.
Lord, guard us, defend us, and sustain us in the battle against these principalities. We trust in You, Jesus, for all of our needs—physical, emotional, and spiritual. Grant us the strength, courage, and fortitude to accomplish your will in all things and to usher in Your Kingdom here on earth. Amen.
The Angel Gabriel visited the Blessed Virgin Mary and announced God’s plan to Her. Mary consented to the Will of God saying, “be it done unto me according to thy word.” Eternal Father, I pray that you send an angel to visit each and every American politician, and that they announce with clarity Your Plan for this country. Give each politician then the grace to consent with the words of Mary, “be it done unto us according to thy word.”
Pray one Hail Mary for the leaders, lawmakers, and citizens in each of the following states: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, and Georgia
When Mary visited Elizabeth, the baby in her womb leaped when he recognized Jesus in Mary’s womb. Eternal Father, I pray that all politicians and supreme court justices recognize the sanctity of life in a mother’s womb. May they work to bring an end to legalized abortion in America and may its end lift the curse of abortion from our nation.
Pray one Hail Mary for the leaders, lawmakers, and citizens in each of the following states: Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, and Maryland
The Savior of the world was born in humbling circumstances while Mary and Joseph completed their civic duty complying with the census. Eternal Father, I pray that Your Son Jesus is reborn into the hearts of all citizens here in America—most especially politicians—and I pray they complete their civic duties with new, Christian humility.
Pray one Hail Mary for the leaders, lawmakers, and citizens in each of the following states: Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, and New Hampshire
As was their custom, Mary and Joseph obediently took the baby Jesus to the Temple and presented Him to God. Eternal Father, I pray that American customs begin to emulate Your Commandments. I also pray that each citizen becomes a vibrant temple of the Holy Spirit in which we present to You the image of Your Son.
Pray one Hail Mary for the leaders, lawmakers, and citizens in each of the following states: New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and South Carolina
The Finding in the Temple:
Mary and Joseph spent three days searching for their Son, Jesus, and eventually found Him teaching the Word of God in the Temple. Eternal Father, I pray that the American leaders and lawmakers who have lost intimacy with Your Son will begin to search diligently for Him. And I pray they find Him within their own Temple, teaching them of the Word of God.
Pray one Hail Mary for the leaders, lawmakers, and citizens in each of the following states: South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming
