Prayer to Seor Santo Nio


For The Sanctication of Families

Divine Child, give all married couples a holy disposition in the


raising of their children. Help them to be models of their faith so
that their children will learn from their good example. I pray that all
homes be a place where children are showered with love,
understanding and guidance, but most especially, that their
homes not be a house, but a place of refuge where they and
shelter and refuge in the loving arms of their parents and that their
home may foster the practice of the virtues. Glorious Son of Mary
Immaculate, while providing for all the basic needs of their
families, may all parents never forget that love is of utmost
importance and that such as the body needs nourishment to
stay healthy and alive the soul and spiritual life need nourishment
as well. While taking care of our bodies, the Temple of the Holy
Spirit, may we not neglect that Who lives within our souls. Dearest
Seor Santo Nio, please make our home Your home. Be that
invisible yet ever present guest around our table during our meals
so that no conversation displeases You. Come and lay Your little
head upon our pillows and keep us all safe until the morning
comes. Walk with us throughout the day and may Your little feet
bless our home and make it holy. May our home be a place of
refuge for all who enter. As for my immediate family, I ask that
you bestow on them the following graces [mention graces]. I place
within Your heart the following needs of my family [here make
your personal petition]. I am confident Seor Santo Nio, that You
hear my plea of supplication and that You will grant my petitions if
it is in line with the Lords desire for our salvation. Impart all
blessings and graces on each member of my family. May each
member of my household learn to imitate the Holy Family
of Nazareth so that they may come to know the wonder of
praising You and contemplating You for all eternity. Amen.
