(Say this prayer on Every day)
O Holy Infant Jesus, who shed your blessings on whoever invokes your name, look kindly on us who kneel humble before your image, and hear our prayers. We commend to your mercy the many poor and needy people who trust in your Divine Heart. Lay your all powerful hand upon them and help them in their needs. Lay your hand upon the sick, to cure them and sanctify their suffering; upon those in distresses, to console them; upon sinners, to draw them into the light of your divine grace; upon all those who, stricken with grief and suffering, turn trustingly to you for loving help. Lay your hand also upon all of us and give us your blessing. O little King, grant the treasures of your divine mercy to the entire world, and keep us now and always in the grace of your love! Amen…
