St. Andrew Christmas Novena Prayer to Obtain Favors
By Renee Bodkin
It is piously believed that whoever recites this prayer fifteen times a day from the feast of St. Andrew (November 30th) until Christmas will obtain what is asked.
Hail and blessed be the hour and moment in which the Son of God
was born of the most pure Virgin Mary, at midnight,
in Bethlehem, in piercing cold.
In that hour, vouchsafe, O my God!
to hear my prayer and grant my desires,
through the merits of Our Saviour Jesus Christ,
and of His Blessed Mother.
