Novena Prayer

Mother of Perpetual Help, with the greatest confidence we come before your holy picture, to be inspired by the example of your life. We think of you at that moment, when, full of faith and trust, you accepted God’s call to be the mother of His Son. Help us, your children, to accept with joy our own calling in life. When you learned that your cousin Elizabeth was in need, you immediately went to serve her and offer your help. Help us, like you, to be concerned with others. We think of you, Mother, at the foot of the cross. Your heart must have bled to see your Son in agony; but your joy was great when he rose from the dead, victorious over the powers of evil. Mother of Sorrows, help us through the trials and disappointments of life; help us not to lose heart; may we share with you and your Son the joy of having courageously faced up to all the challenges of life. Amen.


Thanksgiving Prayer

Mother of Perpetual Help, with grateful hearts, we join you in thanking God for all the wonderful things He has done for us, especially for giving us Jesus, your Son, as our Redeemer. O God our Creator we thank you for the gift of life and all the gifts of nature; our senses and faculties, our talents and abilities. We thank you for creating us in your image and likeness and for giving us this earth to use and develop, to respect and cherish. Despite our failures you continue to show your love for us today by increasing the life of your Spirit in us at the Eucharistic table. Finally, we thank you,loving Father, for giving us Mary, the Mother of your Son, to be Our Mother of Perpetual Help. We are grateful for all the favours we have received through her intercession. We pray that those past favours may inspire us to greater confidence in your loving mercy and to seek the aid of our Mother of Perpetual Help. Amen
