Novena Prayer:

Our Lady of Mount Carmel and Saint Charbel, we pray in these nine days that two peoples divided by war may come together and pray for peace, and that the two holy mountains, Mount Carmel and Mount Lebanon, a hundred miles apart, may become symbols of peace and unity.

Our Lady of Mount Carmel, we pray for your intercession for the Holy Land, where the prophet Saint Elijah preached, that the people of the region may live in peace. We implore your help to liberate the hostages and return them to their families, that this war will end, that people will turn away from terror, and that there will not be a worse war in the region.

Saint Charbel, we pray for your miraculous intercession, that Lebanon may be free from war and the grip of terror, for the protection of the most vulnerable Christian communities, and that Lebanon may once more be a message to the world of peace.

Recite: Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be

Our Lady of Mount Carmel, pray for us.

St. Charbel, Wonder Worker of the East, pray for us.
