DAY 1 - DOUBLE NOVENA for Litany Run

Here we gooo! 1 week left until I am biting off my fingernails and worrying about how much sleep I’m not going to get the night before the race! Haha I kid. 

...But seriously.

Today begins my DOUBLE NOVENA for Litany Run! Thank you so much to everyone who has already contacted me saying that they’d love to join me in these nine days of prayer, which will end on race day – May 5th.  God bless you! Here are the prayers:

Day 1:
Novena of the Miraculous Medal through the intercession of Our Lady:

O Immaculate Virgin Mary,  Mother of Our Lord Jesus and our Mother,  penetrated with the most lively confidence  in you all-powerful and never-failing intercession,  manifested so often through the Miraculous Medal,  we your loving and trustful children  implore you to obtain for us the graces  and favors we ask during this novena,  if they be beneficial to our immortal souls, and the souls for whom we pray.  (State your intention here...)  You know, O Mary,  how often our souls have been  the sanctuaries of you Son who hates iniquity.  Obtain for us then a deep hatred of sin  and that purity of heart which will attach us to God alone  so that our every thought, word and deed  may tend to His greater glory. Obtain for us also a spirit of prayer and self-denial  that we may recover by penance  what we have lost by sin  and at length attain to that blessed abode  where you are the Queen of angels and of men.

Novena for Any Necessity - Through the intercession of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati

O God, come to my assistance. O Lord, make haste to help me.   Heavenly Father,  you know all things,  and nothing is hidden from you;  in your kindness come to my aid in my present distress,  and grant my humble petition.  In Christ's name I beg your help.  Amen. 

Action: Do a kind deed today for someone you meet. 

That's all folks! Stay tuned for updates on my final week of training and for the novena prayers each morning. God bless you!
