As a Catholic Christian prayer is a very important part of my life. I pray directly to God – the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – and I ask for help through the Mother of God, the Blessed Virgin Mary. Who better to ask than the Mother of our Lord? A Jewish mother no less.
On this, the one year anniversary of my Mom’s passing from this world, I thank God for all the blessings He has bestowed on me and my family. And, I know that I can always count on the Blessed Mother.
Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for me.
Virgin Mary, Mother of fair love, Mother who never refuses to come to the aid of a child in need, Mother whose hands never cease to serve your beloved children because they are moved by the divine love and immense mercy that exist in your heart, cast your compassionate eyes upon me and see the snarl of knots that exists in my life. You know very well how desperate I am, my pain, and how I am bound by these knots. Mary, Mother to whom God entrusted the undoing of the knots in the lives of his children, I entrust into your hands the ribbon of my life. No one, not even the evil one himself, can take it away from your precious care. In your hands there is no knot that cannot be undone. Powerful Mother, by your grace and intercessory power with Your Son and My Liberator, Jesus, take into your hands today this knot.
I beg you to undo it for the glory of God, once for all. You are my hope. O my Lady, you are the only consolation God gives me, the fortification of my feeble strength, the enrichment of my destitution, and, with Christ, the freedom from my chains.
Hear my plea. Keep me, guide me, protect me, o safe refuge!
