Dear Mother, I now come before you
on the last day of this novena.
I know you have heard me, Mary.
I believe you have prayed with me each day
for my very special intentions.
My heart is filled with so much gratitude
as I think of you.
I have in you, dear Lady,
a Mother of kindness,
of gentleness and of consolation.
How blessed I am to be your very own child.
In the course of these prayers
I have asked for many things.
I know deep in my heart, Mary,
you have given me much more.
Oh, dear Queen of Heaven,
that I could face all of my days as you did,
and pray that lovely prayer of yours,
“Be it done unto me according to thy word…!”
As I end this period of prayer,
please continue to pray
for these needs of mine,
which fill me with concern.
Prayer can change anything on earth.
I plead with you then,
to remember my intentions to your Divine Son.
Gracious Mother of God,
as I end this prayer,
I ask you to guide me always
closer to your Blessed Son,
Jesus my Lord.
I truly desire to live in His light,
to be an example
to those around me of His love.
Pray with me please
to carry in my mind and in my heart,
His cross of Salvation
and His Gospel of love.
Oh Mary, Mother of Consolation,
pray for me, now
and at the hour of my death.
