Prayer to Our Lady of Good Help

O Dear Lady of Good Help,

You revealed yourself as the Queen of Heaven to your servant, Adele.  You gave her a mission to pray for the conversion of sinners, to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to others and to prepare the children for the reception of the sacraments.

I trust that, as you called Adele to holiness, you are calling me, in my station in life, to live a holy life, devoted to Jesus Christ with the help of your maternal love.

I bring before you now my worries and anxieties.  I abandon my attachments to them and place them at your feet.

I ask you to hear the deepest longings of my heart as I pray most earnestly for:  the restoration and sanctification of marriage as it was created to be – the sacred union between one man and one woman – “ordered to the good of the couple, as well as to the generation and education of children.” (CCC 1660)  Give us the courage, Gentle Lady, to share this beautiful truth in love and without fear.

Dear Lady, you told Adele and you say to all of us, “Do not be afraid; I will help you.”  Help me now as I place this intention with complete confidence and trust.  Amen.

Our Father…  Hail Mary…  Glory be…

Our Lady of Good Help, pray for us.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

(Prayer by the Most Reverend David L. Ricken, D.D., J.C.L., Bishop of the Diocese of Green Bay.  Intention noted is specific to the mission of “Bike for Marriage”)
