Dearest Jesus, little Infant of Prague, how tenderly you love us! Your greatest joy is to dwell among us and to bestow your blessing upon us. Though I am not worthy that you should help me, I feel drawn to you by love because you are kind and merciful. So many who turned to you with confidence have received blessings and had their petitions granted. Behold me as I come before you to lay open my heart to you with its prayers and hopes. I present to you especially this request, which I enclose in your loving Heart (state your request). Rule over me, dear Infant Jesus, and do with me and mine according to your holy will, for I know that in your divine wisdom and love you will arrange everything for the best. Do not withdraw your hand from me, but protect and bless me forever. I pray you, all-powerful and gracious Infant Jesus, for the sake of your sacred infancy, in the name of your blessed Mother Mary who cared for you with such tenderness, and by the greatest reverence with which St. Joseph carried you in his arms, help me in my needs. Make me truly happy with you, dearest Infant, in time and in eternity, and I shall thank you forever with all my heart. Amen.

Prayer for a Student
O Infant Jesus, eternal wisdom made flesh, who shed your blessings so generously on all, and most especially on school children and students who trust in you, please look kindly on (state name) as I implore you to guide and assist him in his studies. You, O God made man, Lord of all learning, source of all understanding and memory, come and help (state name) in his weakness. Enlighten his mind, give him a ready ability to acquire knowledge and truth and the capacity to remember all that he learns. Be his light, strength and comfort in moments of special difficulty. By the grace of Your divine Heart may he do all his school tasks to the best of his ability and gain the utmost profit from them, so that he may get good grades and advance in school. To merit such favors, for my part, I promise to perform faithfully all my duties as a Christian and to love you more and more. O sweet Infant Jesus, keep me always under your protecting mantle and be my guide, not only on the path of learning, but above all on the path to eternal salvation. Amen.
Prayer for Rain
God our Creator, Maker of all things and protector of your people, in your love look upon us in our time of need and give us your help. Open the heavens for us and send us the rain we need for our crops, our livestock, and our well-being. As our hearts long for you, so we seek rain to refresh the earth; as we long for life, so let the earth produce its harvest in abundance. May we rejoice in the good things of the earth and raise our eyes to you, the source of all blessings. Hear our cry for mercy and answer our prayer, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
