Novena To Our Lady Mother of Mercy

The Novena is aimed at having families and possibly communities have a chain prayer with thousands of other Parishioners globally. It is a 30 minutes prayer which we could have in our homes, offices or market places.

Prayer To Our Lady Mother of Mercy

Blessed Virgin Mary, who can worthily repay you with praise and thanks for having rescued a fallen world by your generous consent!

Receive our gratitude, and by your prayers obtain the pardon of our sins. Take our prayers into the sanctuary of heaven and enable them to make our peace with God.

Holy Mary, help the miserable, strengthen the discouraged, comfort the sorrowful, pray for your people, plead for the clergy, intercede for all women consecrated to God.

May all who venerate you feel now your help and protection. Be ready to help us when we pray, and bring back to us the answers to our prayers.

Make it your continual concern to pray for the people of God, for you were blessed by God and were made worthy to bear the Redeemer of the world, who lives and reigns forever. Amen.

Prayer For An End To The Coronavirus Pandemic

O God our Help in ages past, we, your children, humbly implore your mercy at this time of adversity. We are devastated by the coronavirus pandemic that is ravaging the whole world, snuffing life out of your people, and spreading fear everywhere.

You are the God of Life and nothing is impossible to you. You ask us to call on you in the day of trouble and you will answer us. We know that we are sinners who are unworthy of your favors. Although we have no merits of our own to plead before you, we stand on the merits of the death and resurrection of Christ and plead his saving blood over our lives and situation. We ask you to be merciful to us and save us from this scourge that is devastating the world. Be gracious to us and speak life and healing into the present coronavirus scourge and command it to depart from our world.

Give leaders of Governments and scientists divine wisdom and knowledge to take the right decisions and to DISCOVER THE MEDICATION NEEDED TO CURE PEOPLE WHO ARE INFECTED WITH THIS VIRUS. Protect all health workers and volunteers. Look with pity on those who are already infected with this deadly virus and heal them. Grant eternal rest to those who have died from it and comfort those they left behind to mourn their demise.

Lord, through this scourge, may the hearts of many be turned back to you their Creator. We make our prayer through Christ our Lord. Amen.
