This page is for prayers that are useful for monthly devotions. In 
times past, every month was dedicated to Jesus, or the Blessed Virgin
Mary, under various titles. The month of December is dedicated to the
Holy Infancy of Jesus. So below are prayers to Jesus under the title
Infant Jesus of Prague:

Note: In the invocations that end in "Have mercy on us" or similar
endings, I will type out those words for the first and last invocation
and what is in between those will also use those words.

be made instead of days. The prayers should, if
possible, be repeated at the same time every hour

Prayer of Thanksgiving for Graces Received
from the Infant Jesus

 I prostrate myself before Thy holy image, O most
gracious Infant Jesus, to offer my most fervent
thanks for the blessings Thou hast bestowed on me.
I shall incessantly praise Thy ineffable mercy and
confess that Thou alone are my God, my helper, and
my protector. Henceforth my entire confidence shall
be placed in Thee! Everywhere I will proclaim aloud
Thy mercy and generosity, so that Thy great love 
and the great deeds which Thou perform through this 
miraculous image may be acknowledged by all. May 
devotion to Thy holy infancy increase more and more 
in the hearts of all Christians, and may all who
experience Thy assistance persevere with me in 
showing unceasing gratitude to Thy most holy infancy,
to which be praise and glory forever. Amen.

A Holy Name Prayer:

For those who have checked for February's prayers, and seen none, I
didn't post any, obviously, I forgot to do so. However February is 
devoted to the Passion of Our Lord, and there are prayers appropriate
for this on my Catholic Prayers page. I hope to post some prayers for
March, the month of St. Joseph.
