Prayer to Saint Joan of Arc
(Pray novena for 9 consecutive days)
Eternal Father, you gave us Saint Joan of Arc through your infinite love and mercy
for us. We humbly ask that you send down your Holy Spirit upon us, as Your Spirit
is the intermediary by which the Word goes forth from your lips and reaches the
ears of the faithful. Allow me to be a witness to your Son Jesus Christ just as St.
Joan of Arc was. Oh, Jesus, grant me the courage to do your will, that I may be in
one accord with our Father in Heaven. I thank you for the gift of your love, which I
hope to one day fully understand.
Say 19 Our Fathers, followed by “St. Joan of Arc, by your powerful intercession,
hear and answer me.”
When you finish, say the following prayer:
Saint Joan of Arc, patron of France, my patron saint, I ask you now to fight this
battle with me by prayer, just as you led your troops to victory in battle. You, who
were filled with the Holy Spirit and chosen by God, help me this day with the favor I
ask [here say your intention]. Grant me by your divine and powerful intercession,
the courage and strength I need to endure this constant fight. Oh St. Joan, help me
to be victorious in the tasks God presents to me.
I thank you and ask you for your continuing protection of God’s people.
Sweet Saint Joan, plead for me before the throne of almighty God that I may be
deemed worthy to be granted the request I have asked. Help me, Saint Joan, to be
more like you in the attempt to love the Lord with all my heart, soul, and mind.
Through your guidance and prayer help me to be a truly devout and loving
Christian, that I may both know and see the will of God. Help me now St. Joan, in
my time of need. I ask that you may always be near me guiding me closer each day
to Jesus. Thank you Saint Joan for having heard my prayer.
