O Mary, Mother of Perpetual help, I salute thee with the filial devotion. I renew the consecration of myself, and all I have, to thee. I thank thee for thy maternal protection and for the many blessings that I have received through thy wondrous mercy and most powerful intercession. In all my necessities I have recourse to thee with unbounded confidence O Help of Christians, O Mother of Mercy. I beseech thee now to hear my prayer and to obtain for me of thy divine Son the favor that I request in this novena.
( Here mention your petition)
Obtain for me, also, dearest Mother of Perpetual Help, the grace that I may imitate thee and become more like to thee in the practice of the virtues of humility, purity, submission to the will of God, and charity. Be my protectress in life, guard and guide me in dangers, direct me in difficulties, lead me in the way of perfection, and assist me in the hour of my death, that I may come to Jesus, and with thee enjoy Him, bless Him, and love Him eternally in Heaven. AMEN.
Blessed forever be our God Who had made thee, O Mary, so powerful, so compassionate and so ready to help. What would become of us, poor sinners, without thee? With what face, after having so often deserved disgrace and punishment, could we go before our sovereign Judge, and ask of Him, not only pardon, but favors, and share in eternal glory? Blessed be thou too, O clement Queen, for having so often interposed between divine justice and me, thy most unworthy client, for having turned away God’s anger from me, and for having obtained for me so many graces.
These graces are my desires for those I may and ought still to hope for from thy Perpetual Help. Hence for the time to come, whenever I feel more painfully the weight of my unworthiness, when all seems lost, and I am tempted even to despair, then especially, full of confidence, will I invoke thy blessed name. I will make my misery a claim on thy mercy. I will believe that if God lets me feel my weakness, it is to force me to cast myself into the arms of His mercy and upon thee, my sweet and only hope. Design to remember this resolution in my time of need, and grant that I may be faithful to it, till my last breath. And the Most Mother of Perpetual Help, grant that I may never cease to have recourse to thee. AMEN.

O most Holy Mary, virgin mother of our Lord Jesus Christ, queen of the universe, refuge of sinners, I greet you. Mine is the greeting of a servant who venerates you; it is even more; it is the greeting of your son/daughter who has learned to love you.
I thank you for all those, my parents and others, who told me about you and taught me to venerate you and to love you. Bless them for what they have done for me by giving you as my mother and my dearest friend.
With the confidence in you, which they have implanted in me by their example, I come to ask many blessings both for myself and for others. I ask…….. (Make your petitions hear. Take time over them. Do not be in a hurry. Avoid instant petitions. Speak to Mother Mary humbly as to your Heavenly Mother.)
Heavenly Mother, I know you will commend all my petitions to Jesus as you did at Cana. I am assured that Jesus at your request will do the best for me. He will even at your request go beyond my petition. But one more blessing I ask to give me is a heart like yours:
A heart full of love,
A heart that radiates goodwill, A heart that is not hardened or embittered, A heart that while living in the flesh is not ruled by the flesh, A heart that forgets its wounds and reaches out in pardon, A heart that has compassion and that never condemns, A heart that is meek and humble like the heart of your beloved Son, Jesus Christ.

Mothers separated from their children
Lord Jesus, we pray for those mothers who are separated from their children. You know the heart of mothers and how they are connected to their children in mind, body and blood.
Whether they are near or apart, a mother never forgets her child. She always prays for the safety and well being of her child.
May they continue in prayer as they lift up their concerns and hurts of heart and seek for You Lord to be their children’s guide.
In Your perfect timing and in Your will, may forgiveness and reconciliation be part of their life and in joy unite with their children and savor motherhood to the fullest.
