PRAYER FOR THE INTERCESSION OF
MARY VIRGINIA MERRICK
Lord God, in your special love for children, you chose to raise up Mary Virginia Merrick to be the servant of the poor children. In laboring to serve the young and those without hope because of the crushing weight of poverty, she proclaimed the love of your Son. She made her life’s work a demonstration that “nothing is ever too much to do for a child.”
Grant that her example of selfless charity and courageous virtue in the face of her suffering will inspire us to be as generous in the service of others. We humbly ask that your servant Mary Virginia Merrick be numbered among the Church’s canonized saints for edification of your holy people, in accord with your most holy will. Through her intercession, please hear and answer my request (name your intention). Through Jesus Christ our Lord. - Amen.

Christ Child Society Prayer
Remember in this sacrifice of Your own and only Child, all children everywhere throughout the world, and grant that, like Your Son, as they increase in years, they may grow in grace and wisdom before You, and in the sight of all, for the improvement and saving of the world. Jesus, the Friend of little children, bless the little children of the world.
