Novena Prayer – Month of May

O Immaculate Virgin Mary
Mother of Our Lord Jesus Christ
with confidence, we come
to implore your unfailing help

Bearer of life
Mother of our Saviour
give birth in our hearts
to Jesus your Son
Who forgives our sins
And brings healing to our lives

Mother of the Church on earth
hear the cry of the lowly and the poor
who hunger for Jesus the Bread of Life
and in your loving wisdom
make our prayers your own

(We pause to make our needs known to our Immaculate Mother)

Virgin gentle in mercy
Queen of the universe
Cover us with the veil of your protection
and deliver us from the darkness of evil

Teach us by prayer and self-control
the meaning of truth and the beauty of love
that with minds are healed
and hearts that are pure
We may come in the end to where you are
the Queen of Angels and of Saints. Amen
