THIS PRAYER IS RECITED AS A NOVENA (ON NINE CONSECUTIVE DAYS).
Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of our Lord Jesus Christ and our Mother, penetrated with the most lively confidence in your all-powerful and never-failing intercession, manifested so often through the
Miraculous Medal, we, your loving and trustful children implore you to obtain for us (mention your request), if it be beneficial to our immortal souls, and the souls for which we pray.
You know, O Mary, how often our souls have been the sanctuaries of your Son Who hates iniquity.
Obtain for us then a deep hatred of sin and that purity of heart which will attach us to God alone so that our every thought, word, and deed may tend to His greater glory.
Obtain for us also a spirit of prayer and self-denial that we may recover by penance what we have lost by sin and at length attain to that blessed abode where you are the Queen of Angels and of People.
