Blessed Virgin Mary: May the Month of Mary

A symbol of motherly who understands all that is who Mother Mary is to millions. She is a mother that we can turn to when in despair. It is May the Month of Mary and I wanted to share a few of my favorite prayers to her. You can make your own, write a journal to her, make a mini shrine in her honor, anything you like. At the end of the prayers I also put a list of books you may want to check out on Mary who they say is always surrounded by angels and the queen of angels. You can read a great article on asking for her aid by Laurie Conrad here. You can also read my article on a message from Mary on Beliefnet.

This is one from my book Pocket Full of Prayers: 37 Prayers for Healing, Comfort, and Life:

Dear Blessed Virgin Mary;

I ask for your Divine Intercession as you are my mother who not only cares about my needs, but also my tribulations. Right now I do not feel love, or think myself a worthy or noble child to ask for your assistance but I call upon you to send me an answer to my petition as I really need some help. I am feeling hopeless and with the most anxiety and fear that this situation cannot improve. Here is what I ask for a miracle and your assistance with: (fill in) Please Blessed Virgin Mary hear my prayer and bring to me a solution so that all works out in favor. I ask this through Jesus Christ Our Lord and Your son who reigns and lives with the One God forever and ever.

O miraculous mother,
With inspired confidence I call upon thee to extend
Thy merciful loving kindness so that thy powers of perpeutual help will protect me
And assist me in my needs and difficulties. 
Please grant me my desire (make your requests here.)
And so may it be.


Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, 

sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.



 Holy Mary,
help those in need (insert names),
give strength to the weak, (insert names)
comfort the sorrowful, (insert names)
pray for God's people,
assist the clergy,
intercede for all people.

Mary all who seek your help
experience your unfailing protection.


(Never known to fail) Oh most beautiful flower of Mt. Carmel, fruitful vine splendor of heaven Blessed Mother of the Son of God, Immaculate Virgin, assist me in my necessity. Oh, Star of the Sea, 
help me, show me herein, your are my mother. Oh Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth! I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart to succor me in this necessity. There are none that can withstand your power. Oh, show me herein, you are my mother. Oh Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us have recourse to thee. Holy Mother, I place this cause in your hands (3X). Holy Spirit, you who solve all problems, light all roads so that I can attain my goal. You who gave me the divine gift to forgive and and forget all evil against me in that in all instances in my life you are with me. I want in this short prayer to thank you for things as you confirm once again that I never want to be separated from you in eternal glory. Thank you for your mercy towards me and mine. 

The person must say this prayer 3 consecutive days. After 3 days, the request will be granted. This prayer must be published after the favor is granted.   

Realizing, dear Mother Mary,
that thou art our Perpetual Help not only in spiritual
but likewise in temporal necessities,
we approach thee with submissive and humble hearts,
because we have a child-like confidence in thy power and goodness,
beseeching thee to assist us in our present financial worry.
Owing to untoward circumstances which have arisen in our lives,
we are in dire want, being unable to meet our honest debts.
We are not asking, dearest Mother for wealth,
if possession of it is not in accordance with the holy will of God;
we merely beg for that assistance which will enable us
to satisfy our pressing obligations.
We believe, dear Mother,
that thou art the Queen of heaven and earth,
and, as such,
the instrument and special dispensation of thy Son Jesus Christ;
that thou hast acquired by virtue of thy wonderful dignity,
a sweet jurisdiction over all creation.
We believe that thou art not only rich and bountiful,
but extremely kind and generous to all thy loving children.
We plead with thee then, dear Mother,
to obtain for us the help we so urgently need in our present financial difficulty.
We thank thee, dear Lady and promise to publish far and wide,
the marvels of thy glorious Picture.
