Divine Mercy Novena | Day 9

The Divine Mercy Image.
Jesus, I trust in you.

Today is the ninth day of the Divine Mercy Novena. We pray that these Divine Mercy prayers will strengthen us as we celebrate the Octave of Easter. We also pray that we will grow closer to our Lord's Passion through saying this Novena.

Share any answered prayers from saying this novena here.

The novena prayers are from St. Maria Faustina's diary in which she wrote about her encounters with Jesus.

Christ specifically asked her to create a novena of Chaplets to be said leading up to Divine Mercy Sunday, beginning on Good Friday.

She wrote that Jesus said to her, "By this novena, I will grant every possible grace to souls."

Jesus gave St. Faustina an intention for each day of the novena. Each intention is that we would pray for a different group of souls each day, asking for God's mercy for them.

Divine Mercy Novena Prayers

Ninth Day of the Divine Mercy Novena

Intention: "Today bring to Me SOULS WHO HAVE BECOME LUKEWARM, and immerse them in the abyss of My mercy. These souls wound My Heart most painfully. My soul suffered the most dreadful loathing in the Garden of Olives because of lukewarm souls. They were the reason I cried out: 'Father, take this cup away from Me, if it be Your will.' For them, the last hope of salvation is to run to My mercy."

Novena Prayers: Most compassionate Jesus, You are Compassion Itself. I bring lukewarm souls into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart. In this fire of Your pure love, let these tepid souls, who, like corpses, filled You with such deep loathing, be once again set aflame. O Most Compassionate Jesus, exercise the omnipotence of Your mercy and draw them into the very ardor of Your love, and bestow upon them the gift of holy love, for nothing is beyond Your power.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon lukewarm souls who are nonetheless enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. Father of Mercy, I beg You by the bitter Passion of Your Son and by His three-hour agony on the Cross: Let them, too, glorify the abyss of Your mercy.

Amen.

Pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet.
