Prayer to Three Magi (Wise Men or Kings) to make an request

The Magi were a group of three Wise Men (Kings), who travelled from the East to find and worship the Baby Jesus at the time of his birth. Their names are Melchior, Gaspar and Balthasar.

They were guided by, “The Star of Bethlehem,” and were accompanied by Shepherds and Angels. They brought with them gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. 

Their joy is celebrated in this Prayer to make an request. The Epiphany (6th January) is often referred to as the Three King’s Day.

Prayer to Holy Magi (Three Kings)

"O Holy Magi, you were living in continual expectation of the rising of the Star of Bethlehem  which would announce the birth of the true Son of justice; obtain for me an increase of faith and charity, and the grace to live in continual hope of beholding, one day, the light of heavenly glory and eternal joy.

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. 


Prayer to the Infant Jesus

"Infant Jesus, meek and mild,
look on me a little child.
Pity mine and pity me,
suffer me to come to Thee.

Heart of Jesus, I adore Thee.
Heart of Mary, I implore Thee.
Heart of Joseph, pure and just.
In these three hearts, I put my trust.

Help us Joseph in our early strife,
ever to lead a pure and blameless life.

O, Holy Magi, Pray for Us.

Matthew 2:1-12 (NIV)

The Magi Visit the Messiah:

2 After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi[a] from the east came to Jerusalem 2 and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”

3 When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him. 4 When he had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Messiah was to be born. 5 “In Bethlehem in Judea,” they replied, “for this is what the prophet has written:

6 “But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
are by no means least among the rulers of Judah;
for out of you will come a ruler
who will shepherd my people Israel.”

7 Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared. 8 He sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search carefully for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him.”

9 After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. 10 When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. 11 On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. 12 And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route.
