Prayer to Mother Mary

Dec 8, 2020
statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary | Pause+Pray

Reflect

When we’re sad or lonely, who better to turn to than our universal mother? Mary can feel the ripples of pain in our hearts and is ready to guide us to her son.


Pray

Dear Mary,
Like a woeful child,
I am in need
of your motherly care.
Wrap your arms around me for comfort,
dry my tears,
take me by the hand,

and lead me to your Son,
the source of

all that is good.
For only he
can cast out the shadows
of my troubled heart.

Amen.


Act

Not all of us are mothers, but we can still give maternal care to those who are hurting. Share this prayer with the people in your life who could use a word of encouragement.

Mother Mary, please bless all the people who are suffering in the world. Relieve their pain and suffering. Especially the ones in the Middle East. give them shelter, warmth, food, and comfort to get them through this awful time. And the people of Haiti wh are also in need of your blessing and intersessions. I ask help for the people of our country who without your blessings may perish at the hand of evil.

Dearest Mother Mary and Your Holy Family: we pray for Your Divine Intercession and Intervention towards curing my very sick Brother-in-Law, Paul Meyers, from the COVID virus and striking complications. We humbly implore Your help that will enable Paul a full recovery from this death-threatening virus. May it, through Your Will and Divine Mercy, pass through his weakened body and never return to Him or Family members. He and my Sister, Linda, are very devout Catholics and highly praise The Holy Trinity and Holy Family. I ask for Your help in this matter for his loving family members. We praise your name Lord Jesus... Amen.

Please help my Granddaughter Tracy to be healed and stay healthy. She has Cerebral palsy and can not walk or talk. She is 14 years old and such a sweet blessing to our lives. Please Mary, speak to your son about healing her or at least giving her the ability to speak so we know what hurts and what she wants. Thank you so much for all the blessings you have bestowed on us, our family, our friends and the world. Please help us and continue to protect us from evil. We love you and your blessed son. Amen
