In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen!

Oh Mother of Perpetual Help, grant that I may ever invoke your powerful name, the protection of the living and the salvation of the dying. Purest Mary, let your name henceforth be ever on my lips. Delay not, Blessed Lady, to rescue me whenever I call on you. In my temptations, in my needs, I will never cease to call on you, ever repeating your sacred name, Mary, Mary. What a consolation, what sweetness, what confidence fills my soul when I utter your sacred name or even only think of you! I thank the Lord for having given you so sweet, so powerful, so lovely a name. But I will not be content with merely uttering your name. Let my love for you prompt me ever to hail you Mother of Perpetual Help. Mother of Perpetual Help, pray for me and grant me the favour I confidently ask of you.

 

 Say: 1 Our Father… 10 Hail Marys… 1 Glory be to…

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.

Amen.

Prayer to Our Mother of Perpetual Help ~ Financial Help

Realizing, dear Mother Mary,

that thou art our Perpetual Help not only in spiritual

but likewise in temporal necessities,

we approach thee with submissive and humble hearts,

because we have a child-like confidence in thy power and goodness, beseeching thee to assist us in our present financial worry. Owing to untoward circumstances which have arisen in our lives, we are in dire want, being unable to meet our honest debts.

We are not asking, dearest Mother for wealth,

if possession of it is not in accordance with the holy will of God;

we merely beg for that assistance which will enable us

to satisfy our pressing obligations.

We believe, dear Mother,

that thou art the Queen of heaven and earth,

and, as such, the instrument and special dispensation of thy Son Jesus Christ; that thou hast acquired by virtue of thy wonderful dignity, a sweet jurisdiction over all creation.

We believe that thou art not only rich and bountiful,

but extremely kind and generous to all thy loving children.

We plead with thee then, dear Mother,

to obtain for us the help we so urgently need in our present financial difficulty. We thank thee, dear Lady and promise to publish far and wide, the marvels of thy glorious Picture. Amen!

Our Mother of Perpetual Help, Thank you for being there for us always, for your intercession in all our prayers especially in difficult circumstances. Amen.

May God bless you all!

 

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen!
