They request that the following prayer be recited as a Novena April 11, 2010 til April 19, 2010 - the fifth anniversary of the Pope's election.
If you missed yesterday, that's okay, it's still a good prayer (novena) for the pope.

Prayer for Pope Benedict XVI

Lord, source of eternal life and truth, give to your shepherd, Benedict, a spirit of courage and right judgment, a spirit of knowledge and love. By governing with fidelity those entrusted to his care, may he, as successor to the Apostle Peter and Vicar of Christ, build your Church into a sacrament of unity, love and peace for all the world. Amen.

V. Let us pray for Benedict, the pope.
R. May the Lord preserve him, give him a long life, make him blessed upon the earth, and not hand him over to the power of his enemies.
V. May your hand be upon your holy servant.
R. And upon your Son, whom you have anointed.

Our Father,

Hail Mary,

Glory be

Let them know you are praying for the pope here
