Miracle Prayer of St. Francis de Sales to Our Mother Mary

Say not, merciful Virgin,

that you cannot help me, for your beloved Son holds all power in heaven and on earth.

Say not that you ought not to assist me, for you are the Mother of all poor children of Adam, and my Mother in particular.

Since, then, merciful Virgin, you are my Mother, and you are all-powerful, what excuse can you offer if you do not lend your assistance?

See, my Mother, see you are obliged to grant me what I ask, and to yield to my entreaties.

Amen.

What is prayer?

Prayer is the lifting up of our minds and hearts to God.

Let us lift up our hearts with our hands to the Lord in the heavens. (Lamentations 3:41)

How do we know that God always hears our prayers if we pray properly?

We know that God always hears our prayers if we pray properly because Our Lord has promised: “If you ask the Father anything in My name, He will give it to you.”

And whatever you ask in my name, that I will do, in order that the Father may be glorified in the Son. (John 14:13)

Why do we not always obtain what we pray for?

We do not always obtain what we pray for, either because we have not prayed properly or because God sees that what we are asking would not be for our good.

You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it upon your passions. (James 4:3)
