Prayer to Our Mother of Perpetual Help

One of the pictures that hangs in our home

Mother of Perpetual Help, you have been
blessed and favored by God. You became not
only the Mother of the Redeemer, but the
Mother of the redeemed as well.

I come to you today as your loving child.
Watch over me and take care of me. As you
held the child Jesus in your loving arms, so
take me in your arms. Be a mother ready at
every moment to help me. For God who is
mighty has done great things for you, and
God's mercy is from age to age on those
who love God.

Intercede for me, dear Mother, in obtaining
pardon for my sins, love for Jesus, final
perseverance, and the grace to always call
upon you, Mother of Perpetual Help.

"Make Our Mother of Perpetual Help Known Throughout the World."

From the Redemptorists prayer card.

Our Lady of Perpetual Help was one of my favorite devotions when I was a child. I can still feel the warmth of our Mother's embrace.:-)

Glad you thought so too Tracy.

Jackie, the story behind that icon is quite interesting.

Easter: You were blessed. I came to appreciate her devotion later in life.
