Special Prayer — Day 3

O most powerful Lord, my God and Father, You who has never refused to hear the supplications of Your servants and handmaids, grant to the Holy souls the strength to beat their sufferings with the firm hope of seeing You face to face in heaven, through the merits of the Blessed Virgin and St. Joseph who suffered much for our redemption in the days of Nazareth and unto the hour of Calvary.

I humbly ask of You to remember those who are still in the state of cleansing, especially those for whom I offer this novena, and Lord, please grant me the favor which I seek to obtain, if it be for the greater glory of God and salvation of souls.  Amen.
