(May 30 is the feast day of Saint John of Arc)
Pray novena for 9 consecutive days
Eternal Father, Thou gave us Saint Joan of Arc through Thine infinite love and mercy for us. We humbly ask Thee to send down Thine Holy Spirit upon us, as the intermediary by which the Word goes forth from Thy lips and reaches the ears of the faithful. Allow me to be a witness to Thy Son Jesus Christ just as Saint Joan of Arc was. O Lord Jesus, grant me the courage to do Thy will, that I may be in one accord with Our Father in Heaven. I thank Thee for the gift of Thy love, which I hope to one day fully understand.
Pray 19 times the Our Father, followed by “Saint Joan of Arc, by thy powerful intercession, hear and answer me.”
Saint Joan of Arc, patron of France, my patron saint, I ask thee now to fight this battle with me by prayer, just as thou led thy troops to victory in battle. Thou, who were filled with the Holy Spirit and chosen by God, help me this day with the favor I ask thee [intentions]. Grant me by thy divine and powerful intercession the courage and strength I need to endure this constant fight. O Saint Joan of Arc, help me to be victorious in the tasks God presents to me. I thank thee and ask thee for thy continuing protection of God’s people.
O sweet Saint Joan of Arc, plead for me before the throne of God Almighty that I may be deemed worthy to be granted the request I have asked. Help me Saint Joan, to be more like thee in the attempt to love Our Lord with my whole heart, soul and mind. Through thy guidance and prayer, help me to be a truly devout and loving Catholic, that I may both know and see the will of God. Help me now in my time of need Saint Joan. I ask that thou may always be near me guiding me closer each day to Jesus Christ, Our Lord. I give thee thanks for having heard my prayer.

Glorious Saint Joan of Arc,
Filled with compassion,
For those who invoke thee,
Filled with love,
For those who suffer,
With the weight of my troubles,
I kneel at thy feet and humbly beg thee,
To take my present need,
Under thy special protection.
Say intentions here.
Grant to recommend it,
To the Blessed Virgin Mary,
And lay it before the throne of Jesus.
Cease not to intercede for me,
Until my request is granted.
Above all, obtain for me,
The grace to one day,
Meet God face to face,
And with thee and Mary,
And all the angels and saints,
Praise Him through all eternity.
O most powerful Saint Joan of Arc,
Do not let me lose my soul,
But obtain for me the grace
Of winning my way to Heaven,
Forever and ever. Amen.
