9 Month Novena for Impossible Requests
This Annunciation Novena, more commonly referred to as the “Novena for Impossible Requests,” begins on the Feast of the Annunciation (March 25th) and ends nine months later, on Christmas Day (December 25th).
Traditionally, one prays this novena every day (throughout the nine months) for three personal requests.
Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope! To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy towards us; and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
V – Pray for us, most holy mother of God.
R – That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Virgin of the Incarnation, a thousand times we greet thee, a thousand times we praise thee for thy joy you had when God was incarnated in you. Because you are so powerful a Virgin and Mother of God, grant what we ask of thee for the love of God.
Here state your first request.
Repeat the above prayers and then state your second request, repeat once more and state your third request.
Conclude by praying the following prayers one time:
Remember, O most Gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of Virgins, my mother. To thee do I cry, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us, sinners, now, and at the hour of our death.
Blessed and praised be the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar, in Heaven, on earth and everywhere.
