Virgin, Most Holy, Mother Of… (Our Lady, Health Of The Sick)

Virgin, most holy,
Mother of the Word Incarnate,
Treasurer of graces,
and Refuge of sinners,
I fly top your motherly affection
with lively faith,
and I beg of you the grace
ever to do the will of God.

Into your most holy hands
I commit the keeping of my heart,
asking you for health of soul and body,
in the certain hope that you,
my most loving Mother,
will hear my prayer.

Into the bosom of your tender mercy,
this day, every day of my life,
and at the hour of my death,
I commend my soul and body.

To you I entrust all my hopes and consolations,
all my trials and miseries,
my life and the end of my life,
that all my actions may be ordered
and disposed according to your will
and that of your Divine Son.

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)

Prayer from the Baltimore Catechism
