My mum believed in You, Lord. But she found out she had a tumor in her back. That is a serious tumor because it can’t be removed. It didn’t cause her any problems, but, three years has passed and she found out the tumor has grown.
I’m sorry because is difficult for me to believe that something might heal her, but I’m so wrong, because you promised me to heal us. You promised you would take care of us. But I feel so sad and depressed right now.
My mum is all I have on earth, losing her would be losing my whole life. I love her, God. I don’t want her to go. She doesn’t believe in You yet, but I know she will, I just have to believe in your power God, but is so hard. I can’t deal with it just now.
I’m in so much pain and I don’t want my life to drift away because of this. I’m too young, God. I know this sounds selfish, but I wonder, Why me? I just want you to give a chance, God. I want to trust you and believe in you, but sometimes, it hurts too much.
Please, pray for me and my family. I don’t know God’s plans, but I need to believe, because He can do anything. My faith and strenght is not enough.
I need you God to tell me that everything is going to be alright. I just want a second chance so I can be happy.
Please help me to believe.

(A novena – a prayer prayed every day for nine days – may be made at any time of the year.)
O Most Holy Virgin! You were chosen by the Most Adorable Trinity from all eternity to be the most pure Mother of Jesus.
O tender Mother of the afflicted! grant me under my present necessities a special protection. Relying on the infinite mercies of Your Divine Son, and penetrated with confidence in your powerful prayers, I most humbly entreat you to intercede for me. I beg you to obtain for me the favours which I petition for in this Novena, if it be Holy Will of God to grant them; and if not, ask for me whatever graces I stand most in need of
(here specify your requests)
O Mother of God, accept my salutations in union with the respect and veneration with which the Angel Gabriel first hailed you “full of grace”.
(Recite the following Hail Mary – 9 times)
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you, blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death – Amen.
I beseech you, O Comfortress of the Afflicted to obtain for me the favours and graces which I have now implored through your powerful intercession. For this end I offer you my good works I do and sufferings I endure. I most humbly entreat you for the love of the Amiable Heart of Jesus, with which yours was ever so inflamed to hear my humble prayers and obtain my requests. Amen.

Virgin Mother, my Mother, watch over them …
Virgin Mother, my Mother, come to the aid of my children!
May your blessing accompany them, guard them, and defend them. May it encourage them, sustain them in every difficulty, and in every place.
When they go off to work or to play, when they move from place to place, at every step they take, Virgin Mother, my Mother, watch over them.
When they face challenges and suffering, when the Evil One tries to seduce them with the attractions of pleasure, of violence, of temptation, of bad example, Virgin Mother, my Mother, watch over them.
Virgin Mother, watch over them and preserve them from every evil.
When they approach the Sacred Banquet to be fed with the Bread of Angels, with the Word that was made flesh in your womb, Virgin Mother, my Mother, bless my children.
When at night they prepare to rest so as to rise again with new energy, watch over their slumber and make each new day a step toward their eternal Homeland.
Virgin Mother, my Mother, bless my children, descend over them, in the day and in the night, in moments of joy and moments of sadness, in health and in sickness, in life and in death.
Bring them to live with you forever in eternity. Amen.
