DAY 4 OF THE NOVENA TO OUR MOTHER OF PERPETUAL HELP
O Mary, Mother of Perpetual help, I salute thee with the filial devotion. I renew the consecration of myself, and all I have, to thee. I thank thee for thy maternal protection and for the many blessings that I have received through thy wondrous mercy and most powerful intercession. In all my necessities I have recourse to thee with unbounded confidence O Help of Christians, O Mother of Mercy. I beseech thee now to hear my prayer and to obtain for me of thy divine Son the favor that I request in this novena.
( Here mention your petition)
Obtain for me, also, dearest Mother of Perpetual Help, the grace that I may imitate thee and become more like to thee in the practice of the virtues of humility, purity, submission to the will of God, and charity. Be my protectress in life, guard and guide me in dangers, direct me in difficulties, lead me in the way of perfection, and assist me in the hour of my death, that I may come to Jesus, and with thee enjoy Him, bless Him, and love Him eternally in Heaven. AMEN.
TO THEE, then, O Hope of the wretched, I, a miserable sinner, address myself. I hope that by the merits of JESUS CHRIST and through thy intercession I shall be saved. Such is my confidence, O Mary, that were eternal salvation in my own hands I would place it in thine; for I trust more in thy mercy and protection than in all my own endeavors. My Mother and my Hope, abandon me not as I deserve. Be Moved to pity. Help me and save me; let all see that thy goodness surpasses the number and the malice of my sins. It is testified, throughout the Church, that no one under thy protection can ever perish. Should then all others forget me, do not thou, O Mother of Perpetual Help. Say to GOD, that I am thy servant, that thou defendest me and I shall be saved. I wish to live and die saying that next to GOD thou art my chief Hope. Our Lady of Perpetual Help, next to JESUS my only hope, grant that I may always hope in thee. AMEN.
Recite 3 Hail Marys for the favor you seek to obtain.
Our Mother of Perpetual Help, pray for us.
