Saint Raphael (the Archangel) Novena
Feast Day: September 29
Recite the following for 9 consecutive days
Holy Archangel Raphael, standing so close to the throne of God and offering Him our prayers, I venerate you as God's special friend and messenger. I choose you as my Patron and wish to love and obey you as young Tobiah did. I consecrate to you my body and soul, all my work, and my whole life.
I want you to be my guide and counselor in all the dangerous and difficult problems and decisions of my life. Remember, dearest Saint Raphael, that the grace of God preserved You with the good Angels in Heaven when the proud ones were cast into hell. I entreat you; therefore, to help me in my struggle against the world, the spirit of impurity, and the devil.
Defend me from all dangers and every occasion of sin. Direct me always in the way of peace, safety, and salvation. Offer my prayers to God, as you offered those of Tobiah, so that through your intercession I may obtain the graces necessary for the salvation of my soul. I ask you to pray that God grant me this favor if it be His holy will.
(Mention your request)
Saint Raphael, help me to love and serve my God faithfully, to die in His grace, and finally to merit to join you in seeing and praising God forever in Heaven. Amen.
