Section 5 Building Your Relationship With God - 20 Special Prayers

13. Prayer to the Child Jesus (Santo Nino)

One day, as I was praying for someone, at the end of my prayer, I saw a partial vision of a Santo Nino Statue. I asked God if He could give me a sculpture of the vision I saw. This is what He gave.

Most generous child Jesus Christ
I gladly give My life to you in full measure.

Later I asked if He could give me an accompanying prayer to go with this sculpture. This is what He gave:

Jesus in a manger


Santo Nino


Say the Efficacious Prayer to the Holy Child Jesus.

I shall ask My mother to give it to you.

Prayer to the Santo Nino

Say the Efficacious Prayer to the Child Jesus (A prayer said to have been given by the Blessed Mother to Fr. Cyril a Matre Dei)

O Child Jesus, I have recourse to Thee by Thy Holy Mother; I implore Thee to assist me in this necessity, for I firmly believe that Thy Divinity can assist me. I confidently hope to obtain Thy holy grace. I love Thee with my whole heart and my whole soul. I am heartily sorry for my sins, and entreat Thee, O good Jesus, to give me strength to overcome them. I am firmly resolved never to offend Thee again and to suffer everything rather than displease Thee. Henceforth, I wish to serve Thee faithfully. For Love of Thee, O divine Child, I will love my neighbor as myself. O Jesus, omnipotent Child, I entreat Thee again to come to my assistance in this necessity.  (Mention your intentions...) Grant me the grace of possessing Thee eternally with Mary and Joseph, and of adoring Thee with Thy Holy Angels and Saints. Amen.
