A POWERFUL NOVENA TO SAINTS PETER AND PAUL, APOSTLES (PILLARS OF THE CHURCH): DAY 2

O God, come to my aid+
R. O Lord, make haste to help me.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Pin on St. Peter & St. PaulOpening Prayer

Heavenly Father, we praise and thank you for the lives and missions of St. Peter and St. Paul, ardent apostles of Your beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. As you have enriched them with many graces and gifts, we ask you, Father, to meet our needs, both spiritual and material (ask for the grace you want to achieve). This we ask through the merits of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and through the intercession of St. Peter and St. Paul. Amen.

Scriptural Reading (Acts 9:1-9)

Meanwhile, Saul was still breathing threats to slaughter the Lord’s disciples. He went to the high priest and asked for letters addressed to the synagogues in Damascus, that would authorize him to arrest and take to Jerusalem any followers of the Way, men or women, that he might find. It happened that while he was traveling to Damascus and approaching the city, suddenly a light from heaven shone all around him. He fell to the ground, and then he heard a voice saying, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?’ ‘Who are you, Lord?’ he asked, and the answer came, ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. Get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you are to do.’ The men traveling with Saul stood there speechless, for though they heard the voice they could see no one. Saul got up from the ground, but when he opened his eyes he could see nothing at all, and they had to lead him into Damascus by the hand. For three days he was without his sight and took neither food nor drink.

The Word of the Lord…

—PAUSE FOR A MOMENT OF MEDITATION—

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

DAY 2 PRAYER

The Holy Apostles Saint Peter And Saint Paul Painting by Svitozar NenyukOh Apostle and Pope, Saint Peter, you who were called by the Lord to be a “fisher of men.” You who said: Lord, to whom shall we go? For only You have the words of eternal life. Come to my aid with your intercession with God, giving me the courage to follow your example of faithful love for Christ and announce the good news in my family, the community, at work, and everywhere. Oh, Saint Peter, you who made the most beautiful declaration of love: Lord, you know everything, You know that I love You. Teach me today the way of justice so that I may have health and peace and obtain from God the grace I ask of you. O glorious and great Apostle St. Paul, master of the Gentiles, courageous, follower of Christ, fearless evangelizer, founder of communities, give us this spirit of apostleship of your Master Jesus, so that we may say to everyone – “It is not I who live, but Christ who lives in me.” Enlighten all peoples with the light of the Gospel, which you witnessed with so much love, seeking to establish in the world your Master’s Kingdom of justice and love. Arouse many missionary vocations that, following your example, bring Christ to all peoples (make other particular requests). Amen.

Our Father…10 Hail Marys…Glory be… (For the Intentions of families passing through difficulties/challenges of all kinds)
