Novena for Adventists – Day 9 – The Saints of the Church

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Today we pray for Adventism, that its members may share the faith of the Saints of the Church, and share in their glory in heaven with Mary, the Virgin Mother of God, the Apostles, the Patriarchs, and all the Saints of God.  We pray, on the eve of Ellen White’s birthday, that her teachings diminish and the teachings of Christ through his Church increase.  We ask Ellen, along with all the angels and saints, to pray with us for this blessing.

The Romanist points the sinner to the Virgin Mary, to penances, indulgences, and the absolution of the priest; and to this theory come those who would be saved in their sins, and those who would be saved by their own merit.
– Ellen White, Advent Review and Sabbath Herald, November 11, 1890

At last I saw the standard lowered, and those heathen were uniting with Christians. They had been worshipers of idols, and although they professed to be Christians, they brought along with them their idolatry. They changed the objects only of their worship, to images of saints, and even the image of Christ, and Mary the mother of Jesus. Christians gradually united with them, and the Christian religion was corrupted, and the church lost its purity and power.
– Ellen White, Spiritual Gifts, Vol 1, p103

And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul:  [12]  So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them.
– Acts 19:11-12 [KJV]

Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ’s sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me;
– Romans 15:30 [KJV]

And as touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?  [27]  He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.
– Mark 12:26-27 [KJV]

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
– Hebrews 12:1 [KJV]

But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,  [23]  To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,  [24]  And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
– Hebrews 12:22-24 [KJV]

And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
– Matthew 16:18 [KJV]

Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
– Matthew 28:20 [KJV]

Hail Mary, full of grace, mother of Christians,
Blessed art thou amongst women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
Pray for us sinners, now, and at the hour of our death.

Ellen White, mother of Adventism,
pray for those who follow what you taught during your life on earth.
Now that you are in God’s presence, you can see the sad reality
of the errors you brought your children.
Together with us, ask God to send his grace on the Adventist church,
so that it might see the beauty and love and truth
to be found in the original Christian faith,
and return to the faith of the Apostles,
the faith recorded in the Bible.

Holy Michael the Archangel,
Pray for us.

Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob,
Pray for us.

Joseph and the Patriarchs,
Pray for us.

Moses and all the Old Testament Saints,
Pray for us.

Saint Peter, Saint Paul, and all the Holy Apostles,
Pray for us.

St Ignatius of Antioch, St Polycarp, St Justin Martyr,
Pray for us.

Souls of all those who served God in the Adventist church,
Pray for us.

Holy Souls in Purgatory,
Pray for us.

Anima Christi

Soul of Christ, make me holy.
Body of Christ, save me.
Blood of Christ, inebriate me.
Water from the side of Christ, wash me.
Passion of Christ, make me strong.
O good Jesus, hear me.
Hide me within Your wounds.
Let me never be separated from You.
Deliver me from the wicked enemy.
Call me at the hour of my death,
And tell me to come to You,
That with Your saints I may praise you
Forever. Amen

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever.

Glory be to the Father +, and to the Son +, and to the Holy Spirit +,
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
