Prayer For the Special intentions of this Novena
.
Holy Mary, Immaculate Mother of God, we are assembled here today to show Thee our veneration and love. We rejoice at the dignity and glory which our Lord has bestowed upon Thee; we praise and glorify Him for having given us a Mother adorned with a most pure and tender Heart.
We consecrate to Thee, O Virgin most spotless and Mother most dear, these nine days of prayer, and especially this day. We choose Thee as our Mother, our Patroness, and our advocate with Thy Divine Son, Jesus, now and forever. We consecrate to Thee our soul and body; to Thee we recommend all our wishes and desires, our sorrows and miseries, our whole life, and especially the end thereof. O, show Thyself a Mother to us.
We recommend toThee the whole Catholic Church, our Bishops, all Priests and religious, our parents, superiors, benefactors, relatives, friends, and enemies, and the souls of the faithful departed.
.
O Immaculate Virgin Mary, graciously hear our prayers, and receive the petitions which we unite with those of all the faithful on earth and of the Angels and Saints in Heaven. We commend especially to Thee all of those souls, intentions, and petitions which have been commended to our prayers, or placed upon the altar, that they may be granted as long sd they are in accord with the Divine Will, for the greater honor and glory of God, and the salvation of souls. Intercede for us, O Immaculate Lady, and obtain for us that greatest of all graces: to be faithful to Thee and Thy Divine Son unto death, and after death, to obtain the happiness in Heaven of praising and thanking Thee with all the angels and saints; and with them loving and adoring Thy beloved Son Jesus Christ, with the Father and the Holy Ghost, for all eternity. Amen. Hail Mary…
.
O Mary, conceived without sin, Pray for us who have recourse to Thee.
HYMN
In grief and temptation, in joy and in pain,
We’ll seek Thee, our Mother, nor seek Thee in vain.
Ave, Ave, Ave Maria! Ave, Ave, Ave Maria!

Prayer Against Temptations
.
Immaculate Virgin Mary, most pleasing to our Lord, chosen by Him to be His own spotless Mother, O turn Thy benevolent gaze upon us, Thy pitiful supplicants, now seeking Thy powerful protection! To this very hour are the wretched children of Eve assaulted fiercely and often ensnared by the malicious Serpent, against whom was uttered the primal curse. Do Thou, then, O loving Mother, our Queen and our Advocate, Thou who from the first moment of Thy Immaculate Conception didst crush the Serpent’s head, accept the prayers which we implore Thee to offer, in union with Thy Immaculate Heart, at the throne of God: so that, never yielding to the temptations and diabolical wiles that beset us, we may all come at last to the harbor of salvation, and in the midst of perils so great, Holy Mother Church and all of Her faithful children may sing once more the hymn of deliverance, victory, and peace. Amen.
Hail Mary…
O Immaculate Virgin Mary, who didst come into the world without spot, I implore Thee to obtain from God the grace that I may leave it without sin.
.
HYMN
For poor, sick, afflicted, Thy mercy we crave.
And comfort the dying, Thou light of the grave.
Ave, Ave, Ave Maria! Ave, Ave, Ave Maria!
(HAIL MARY 3×)
