Thursday

Opening Prayer:

Let us pray, That through the prayers of the sinless Virgin Mary, God will free us from our sins.

Father, You prepared the Virgin Mary to be the worthy mother of your son.

You let her share beforehand in the salvation Christ would bring by his death, and kept her sinless from the first moment of her conception.

Help us by her prayers to live in your presence without sin.

We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Closing Prayer:
God of us all, Thank you for the gift of Mary in my life.

I rely on her to intercede for me with her son, and to guide me, especially in my family.

Help me to learn the grace of humility, and give me the courage to say "yes" to you without always knowing where it will lead.

Release me from the fears that grip me, the pride and stubbornness that keep me from you and others.

Let me turn to Mary, so human, for an example of how I might live my own life more freely, more loving and more aware of you.

May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil and bring us to everlasting life.

Amen.
