Her Daily Prayer That spirit of Christian charity suffuses this prayer , which Mother Teresa prayed daily. It reminds us that the reason we care for the bodily needs of others is that our love for them makes us long to bring their souls to Christ.

To thee I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petition, but in thy mercy, hear and answer me. Amen. St Teresa of Calcutta, pray for us.
St . Teresa’s method of prayer emerges from the awareness that God is a Person. She approaches God as Father, Beloved, Spouse, His Majesty, and most notably, Friend. Teresa’s heavenly wisdom and intercession lead us on the way to friendship with God.
Mother Teresa (1910–1997) was a Roman Catholic nun who devoted her life to serving the poor and destitute around the world. She spent many years in Calcutta, India where she founded the Missionaries of Charity, a religious congregation devoted to helping those in great need.
In 2002, the Vatican officially recognised as a miracle the healing of an Indian woman’s cancer of the abdomen. This occurred as the result of the application of a locket containing Mother Teresa’s picture. The woman, Monica Besra, said a beam of light had emanated from the picture, curing her cancerous tumour.

The most traditional way to pray a novena is to recite it at least once a day over the course of 9 days. Choose a time of day to recite your novena prayer. You should pray your novena during the same time each day .

God of Miracles, I will not fear, for You are with me; I will not be dismayed for You are my God. I know that my strength will come from You, You will help and heal me. It is You who upholds me with Your right hand. Thank You for being the source of my healing , I do not need to be anxious for anything.
