There is a Catholic devotion known as a novena.

This is the recitation of a prayer or prayers, for a specific intention(s) done a in public or
a private setting for an extended period of time, usually nine days or nine weeks.

I have included some that all Christians can use.

Divine Mercy Novena

Lord God-

I fly to Your Mercy, Compassionate God, Who alone are good. Although my misery is great and my offenses are many, I trust in Your Mercy because You are the God of Mercy, and it has never been heard of in all ages, nor do Heaven or Earth remember, that a soul trusting in Your Mercy has been disappointed.

(State your intentions - pray for 9 days)

Jesus, Friend of a lonely heart, You are my haven.
You are my peace.
You are my salvation.
You are my serenity in moments of struggle and amidst an ocean of doubts.

Yours in Christ,
Maria 玛丽亚
