A Prayer For Our Nation, America.

O Most Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Mercy, at this most critical time, we entrust the United States of America to your loving care.

Most Holy Mother, we beg you to reclaim this land for the glory of your Son. Overwhelmed with the burden of the sins of our nation, we cry to you from the depths of our hearts and seek refuge in your motherly protection.

Look down with mercy upon us and touch the hearts of our people. Open our minds to the great worth of human life and to the responsibilities that go with human freedom.

Free us from the falsehoods that lead to the evil of abortion and threaten the sanctity of family life.  Grant our country the wisdom to proclaim that God’s law is the foundation on which this nation was founded, and that He alone is the True Source of our cherished rights to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.

O Merciful Mother, give us the courage to reject the culture of death and the strength to build a new Culture of Life.  In this I pray, Amen.

Salve Regina: Hail Holy Queen.

Immaculate Virgin Mary, Blessed Mother

THE SALVE REGINA

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy. hail our life, our sweetness and our hope! To You do we cry, poor banished children of Eve! To You do we send up our sighs; mourning and weeping in this vale of tears! Turn, most gracious Advocate, your eyes of mercy toward us; and after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of Your womb, Jesus! O Clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!

PRAYER TO OUR LADY, COMFORTER OF THE AFFLICTED

Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God and our most compassionate Mother, we present ourselves in thy sight in all humility, and with full confidence
we implore thee for thy maternal patronage. Please be the Comforter of the Afflicted, and to thee constant recourse is had by the sorrowful in their afflictions, the sick in their maladies, the dying in their agony, the poor in their straitened circumstances, those who stand in all way of need in both public and private calamities; and from thee they all receive consolation and strength.

Our dearest Mother, turn upon us also, wretched sinners that we are, thy merciful eyes, and graciously accept our humble and confident prayers. Aid us in all our spiritual and temporal necessities, deliver us from all evil and especially from sin, which is the greatest evil, and from all danger of falling into it; obtain for us from thy Son Jesus every blessing of which thou see we stand in need both in soul and body, and especially the greatest blessing of all, which is Divine grace. Comfort our spirits, troubled and afflicted in the midst of the many dangers that threaten us, and the countless miseries and misfortunes that beset us on every side. This we ask through that immense joy which filled thy pure soul in the glorious Resurrection of thy Divine Son.

In this I pray, Amen

Unshakeable Peace Serenity: Philippians 4:6-7.

Philippians 4:6-7

do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Serenity can’t be manufactured—it’s a gift from our heavenly Father. The Holy Spirit produces a sense of calm in believers who seek the Lord’s protection against anxiety. The Greek word translated as guard in today’s passage literally means “to garrison about.” God wraps hearts and minds in peace, effectively safeguarding both against all-consuming worry or fear. Notice that He doesn’t make problems go away—we may still be under pressure or prone to weep, but we’re cushioned against anxiety and surrounded by peace instead.

Heal me with your love. I bring to you, dearest Lord, my life and it is, my hopes and dreams, my struggles and pains, my fears, anxieties my hurts, my talents, my achievements, my disappointments and my sickness. I bring to you all whom I love. I entrust all to you and with confident faith I take heart; for you make all things new. Renew me, and heal me with your everlasting love.
In this I pray, Amen

Prayer for Religious Freedom

We are grateful and blessed to live in a country founded on Judeo-Christian principles which affords our God-given right to religious liberty. Freedom is not only a gift from God, but a responsibility which in turn requires our vigilance.  Let us be vigilant in prayer and hope, because as Pope Benedict XVI reminds us, “God is the foundation of our hope: not any god, but the God who has a human face and has loved us to the end.”
