Novena to Our Lady in Expectation

I have been asked from the comments about the Novenas to Our Lady in Expectation. In my research I have not been able to find any set forms. Nonetheless I can give you an improvised version, which can be used both by the barren and by anyone else with other pressing needs!






Our Father....
Hail Mary....
I Believe...
Glory Be...

V. The angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.

R. And she conceived by the Holy Spirit.

Let us pray.
Almighty and ever - living God, by whose power the Incarnate Word found a worthy dwelling in the womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary, grant that by her intercession, we may be given abundant blessings in our earthly pilgrimage and come to the joys of the eternal life to come. We ask this through her only Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

It would be fitting to do this novena in between the feasts of the Immaculate Conception and the Expectation, beginning on December 9th and finishing on December 17th.
