How to ask Mary for grace in a moment of desperation

BLESSED VIRGIN MARY PRAYING

Walter A. Aue CC

Aleteia - published on 06/20/17

A prayer recommended by Pope Francis

In moments of darkness or desperation, believers can count on the help of our Mother, the Virgin Mary. This is a prayer that Pope Francis recommends for these situations:

Holy Mary, full of God’s presence during the days of your life, you accepted with full humility the Father’s will, and the devil was never capable of tying you up with his confusion. Once with your Son you interceded for our difficulties, and full of kindness and patience, you gave us example of how to untie the knots in our life. By remaining forever Our Mother, you put in order and make more clear the ties that link us to the Lord. Holy Mother, Mother of God and our Mother, to you who untie with a motherly heart the knots of our life, we pray to you to receive in your hands (the name of the person), and to free him/her of the knots and confusion with which our enemy attacks. Through your grace, your intercession and your example deliver us from all evil, Our Lady, and untie the knots that prevent us from being united with God, so that we, free from sin and error, may find Him in all things, may have our hearts placed in Him, and may serve Him always in our brothers and sisters.
