Black Nazarene Novena Day 2

Jesus Prays in the Garden of Gethsemane



In the name of the Father
and of the Son
and of the Holy Spirit.


Lord Jesus Christ, true God and true man,
I am heartily sorry for having sinned You and my neighbor.
You are my Lord and my Brother whom I love above all things.
Come and help me, not to sin again,
and led me into a new life.
I trust in Your loving forgiveness.

Opening Prayer


Lord Jesus of Nazareth,
Your cross proclaims the wonder of Your love.
Teach us to reflect on Your suffering,
death and resurrection,
in order to have an unfailing faith in Your goodness that has no end.
You live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit
forever and ever. Amen.

Reflection: [Lk. 22:41-42, 44-45]

After withdrawing about a stone’s throw from them and kneeling,
he prayed, saying, “Father, if you are willing, take this cup away from me;
still, not my will but yours be done.”
He was such in agony and he prayed so fervently
that his sweat became like drops of blood falling on the ground.
When he rose from prayer and returned from his disciples,
he found them sleeping from grief.

In Gethsemane, Jesus of Nazareth teaches us
to trust and obey the will of God
in the midst of hardships and trials in life.

Let us adore our Lord and Savior,
who, at the Last Supper,
entrusted to His Church the memorial
of His death and rising again.

May our prayers and coming to Mass give us the grace and courage to follow God’s will.

[Short Silence]


Lord Jesus of Nazareth, we thank You because,
through your death and resurrection,
You showed us the abundant fruit of obeying the will of the Father.


* (R) Lord Jesus of Nazareth, teach us to pray always.

Guard our thoughts and senses,
so that all that we do may be pleasing to You. (R)

Through Your suffering and death, You brought us everlasting life.
Give us the strength of the Holy Spirit,
so that we may never grow tired of serving You and our neighbors. (R)

By Your suffering and prayer at Gethsemane,
teach us obedience to God’s will I spite of hardships and trials in life. (R)

Help us to honestly and faithfully pray;
and not to do good only to be seen by people. (R)

[Pause for Personal Intentions]

Lord God, come and strengthen the hope and faith that You have given us,
so that we may truly experience Your presence in our lives.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.



(R) Have mercy and save us.

Blood of Christ, the only Son of the Father. (R)
Blood of Christ of the old and everlasting covenant. (R)
Blood of Christ that washes away my sins and the sins of the world. (R)
Blood of Christ that formed like sweat and fell to the ground at Gethsemane. (R)
Blood of Christ that flowed out while You were scourged at the pillar. (R)
Blood of Christ that covered Your face at the crowning of thorns. (R)
Blood of Christ, scorned by the people on the road of Jerusalem. (R)
Blood of Christ, emptying itself at the crucifixion. (R)
Blood of Christ, source of our salvation. (R)
Blood of Christ, river of mercy and forgiveness. (R)
Blood of Christ, that won over violence and injustice. (R)
Blood of Christ, refuge of the abused and the downtrodden. (R)
Blood of Christ, strength of those who suffer. (R)
Blood of Christ, consolation of lonely souls. (R)
Blood of Christ, hope of sinners. (R)
Blood of Christ, that makes strong the weak and the afflicted. (R)
Blood of Christ that leads the poor souls into heaven. (R)

Concluding Prayer:


Lord God, our Father, You willed that Your Son, Jesus,
died on the cross for the sins of the world.
Grant us the grace to be one with His suffering
so that we may be worthy to hope for a new life.
Help us to walk the way of Your commandments
and to serve You in our neighbors.
Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
