Christ the King Novena 2017 | Day 8

Christ the King of the Universe

November 24, 2017

The Feast of Christ the King was first promulgated in a world that was becoming increasingly nationalistic and secular. Pope Pius XI observed, "While nations insult the beloved name of our Redeemer by suppressing all mention of it in their conferences and parliaments, we must all the more loudly proclaim His kingly dignity and power, (and) all the more universally affirm His rights." Today, we pray that God will reign sovereign within our hearts and throughout the world.

Christ the King Novena Prayer - Day 8

Christ, our Savior and our King, renew in me allegiance to Your Kingship.

I pray that You will reign throughout all the world.

O Prince of Peace, may Your reign be complete in my life and in the life of the world. Christ, my King, please answer these petitions if they be in accordance with Your Holy Will…

[Mention your intentions here]

As I reflect on Your second, glorious coming and the judgment of all mankind, I beg You to show me mercy and give me the grace to become a great saint. I pray that not only will I spend eternity with You but that You may use me – a sinner – to bring others into Your Kingdom for Your glory.

Christ the King, Your Kingdom come. Amen.

Almighty ever-living God, whose will is to restore all things in Your beloved Son, the King of the universe, grant, we pray, that the whole creation, set free from slavery, may render Your majesty service and ceaselessly proclaim Your praise. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns together with You, and in the unity of the Holy Spirit one God all powerful and loving, forever. Amen.
