It is a tradition in the Catholic Church to pray special prayers called a novena nine days before an important feast. The Feast of Our Lady Woman of Valor is an important feast in the Pastoral Center for Migrants in Tel Aviv and it is celebrated on the Saturday closest to May 10. We publish here the prayer of the seventh day of the novena.

woman of valor
7. I am with you, says the Lord of hosts, (…) my spirit abides among you; do not fear. (Haggai 2:4-5)
The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain. (Proverbs 31:11)

Lord, through the intercession of Our Lady Woman of Valor, we seek to intercede for our brothers and sisters, all Christians suffering because of their faith or their ethnic or religious identity in this region and throughout the world. Give to each one the grace of trusting in the Holy Spirit, Defender and Consoler. Give to each the strength to give witness to you.

Our Father
