NOVENA TO OUR LADY OF PROMPT SUCCOR
O Mary, my Mother, my Friend,
next to our Heavenly Father, Jesus and His Holy Spirit,
you are our greatest Benefactress.
In your great love for us,
you consented to be the Mother of Jesus, our Saviour, and our Mother too.
In fulfilling this commitment,
you suffered immensely, at the foot of the Cross.
Your Immaculate Heart was pierced with the sword of intense sorrow.
And now that you are assumed into heaven, body and soul.
You have not ceased to be deeply concerned for us,
until we are brought home safely to our true Fatherland.
And to encourage us to make good use of the power of your intercession, you have wished to be called not only our Mother of Perpetual Help,
but Mother of Prompt Succor, as well.
And so, trusting fully,
in your goodness, love for us, and power of prayer,
I come to you, Dearest Mother,
and beg you, to please, pray for me, to Jesus, and with Him to our Heavenly Father,
for this grace of the spirit, that I am in dire and urgent need of
(Mention the grace you wish to receive.)
O Mary, you “went with haste” to aid your cousin Elizabeth, once you knew that she needed your help.
You immediately prayed to Jesus, once you knew the predicament of the newly-wed at Canaan.
Listen to me, then, at this hour of my great need.
Our Lady of Prompt Succor, hasten to help me.
Our Lady of Prompt Succor, aid me promptly and favorably.
I trust in you. Amen.
