PRAYER TO THE
BLESSED VIRGIN MARY
Prayer for mothers
Mary, most holy, you are the first and truest disciple of Christ.
Pray that I may live your poverty of spirit,
your purity of heart, your singleness of purpose.
May I say, "Be it done to me" each time the Lord
calls me to live the gospel in daily life.
Show me how to welcome the unexpected guest,
to compassionate with the downtrodden
and bear patiently the trials of life.
Mother of God, help me to be a holy mother,
not because I desire status or glory,
but because my children have a great need and right
to all that I can give.
May I recognize your Son in their faces
and in the gaze of all I meet.
