Pray: 9 Days for 9 Justices Novena


Pray: 9 Days for 9 Justices Novena

On Wednesday, December 1, the US Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization which could, Deo volente, hasten the end of Roe v. Wade and legalized abortion in the United States.

In the nine days prior to the hearing, you are invited to pray a novena, nine days of prayer, for the nine justices of the US Supreme Court beginning. This novena was composed by 14 year-old, Paige Kutas, who is in the 8th Grade at Saint Mary School in Charlotte. You can access the daily prayer for each justice here. The daily novena prays thus: 

Let us pray:

O Lord, through you all things were created and have life. Please send your Holy Spirit upon [name of Justice] and grant him/her the courage and wisdom to stand for and protect those in the womb. Spark within {name of Justice] the desire to hear the truth and to protect every innocent unborn life. Lord, guide [name of Justice] with your hand, so that through his/her decision making he/she will do your will and work on earth.

Our Father…

Hail Mary…

Glory Be…
