DAY 6 OF THE NOVENA TO OUR MOTHER OF PERPETUAL HELP
O Mary, Mother of Perpetual help, I salute thee with the filial devotion. I renew the consecration of myself, and all I have, to thee. I thank thee for thy maternal protection and for the many blessings that I have received through thy wondrous mercy and most powerful intercession. In all my necessities I have recourse to thee with unbounded confidence O Help of Christians, O Mother of Mercy. I beseech thee now to hear my prayer and to obtain for me of thy divine Son the favor that I request in this novena.
( Here mention your petition)
Obtain for me, also, dearest Mother of Perpetual Help, the grace that I may imitate thee and become more like to thee in the practice of the virtues of humility, purity, submission to the will of God, and charity. Be my protectress in life, guard and guide me in dangers, direct me in difficulties, lead me in the way of perfection, and assist me in the hour of my death, that I may come to Jesus, and with thee enjoy Him, bless Him, and love Him eternally in Heaven. AMEN.
O MOST TENDER and Compassionate of mothers turn thine eyes of mercy upon me, and lend a gracious ear to any humble prayer. Since thou art more ready to give than to receive, thou wilt find in me a fitting subject for thy bounty. It is true, I have deserved rather than thou shouldst spurn me on account of the ingratitude I have hitherto shown to GOD for His benefits: thou art ever ready to listen to those who pray to thee, and thou regardest our misery and our confidence rather than our merits. No one is miserable than I am, and yet never have I doubted thy goodness. Incline then towards me that heart of thine so full of grace. O Mother of GOD and of men, grant me a share in those rich graces which GOD has given to thee for the whole world’s benefit. I have constant need of thy help, which thou on thy part hast a still greater desire to supply. I would that all the beatings of my heart were so many acts of love for thee, of confidence in thee, and of prayer to thee, for myself and for all who are dear to me, Mayest thou have the glory one day of seeing me saved through thy intercession. O Mother of Perpetual Help, in thee I hope: I shall not be confounded. AMEN.
