Day 19 - 40 Day Prayer Pledge
His mother (Mary) said to the servants: “Do whatever He tells you.” John 2:5
Sometimes it is hard for us to hear God’s voice, to know what He asks of us. That’s one of the reasons Jesus gave us His Mother when He was dying on the Cross. She is our spiritual mother, and she can always help us see Jesus and know what our next step should be. How would I describe the role of the Blessed Virgin Mary in my spiritual life? How could I improve it?

A Prayer to the Blessed Virgin Mother
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known
that anyone who fled to your protection,
implored your help,
or sought your intercession
was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence,
I fly unto you,
O Virgin of virgins, my mother;
to you do I come,
before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in your mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
