A PRAYER IN SPECIAL TIME OF NEED
Mary, Loving Mother of Consolation, I turn to you now in this time
of need. I come to you confused and fearful, anxious as a little child.
I know you really are my Mother. You see me with eyes filled with
love and understanding. Touch me through your prayers and hold me in your love, that I might continue strong and unafraid
in these days of difficulty and hurt.
Gentle Mother, I now confide to you my greatest need (pause and reflect).
Please pray that the loving will of Our Father may always come first in my heart and in my mind.
Help me to reflect on the needs in your own life, Mary, the days when
you, too, knew concern, fear, loneliness and grief. You always turned to Our Father and gave yourself to Him completely. You
knew His love and showed us how to live in it.
When I remember the love of your Blessed Son for me, I am less afraid.
When I think of you I can smile. Pray for me, Mary. Guide me always in your love, and lead me to your Son, Jesus. Amen.
