PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF HOPE
 
All: O Mary, my mother, I kneel before you with heavy heart. The burden of my sins oppresses me. The knowledge of my weakness discourages me. I am beset by fears and temptations of every sort.
 
Yet, I am so attached to the thighs of this world that instead of longing for heaven I am filled with the dread at the thought of death. O Mother of mercy, have pity on me in my distress.
 
You are all powerful with your divine Son. He can refuse no request of your immaculate heart. Show yourself a true mother to me by being my advocate before His throne.
 
O refuge of sinners and hope of the hopeless, to whom shall I turn if not to you? Obtain for me, then, O Mother of Hope, the grace of true sorrow for my sins, the gift of perfect resignation to God’s Holy Will, and the courage to take up my cross and follow Jesus. Beg of His sacred heart the special favor that I ask in this novena.
 
(Make a request)
 
But above all I pray, O dearest Mother, that through your most powerful intercession my heart may be filled with holy hope, so that in life’s darkest hour I may never fail to trust in God my Savior, but by walking in the way of His commandments I may merit to be united with Him and with you in the eternal joys of heaven. Amen.
 
Leader: Mary, our hope,
All: Have pity on us.
 
Leader: Hope of the hopeless,
All: Pray for us.
(Say 3 hail Mary)
 
 
CONSECRATION TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN
 
All: My queen and my mother, I give myself entirely to you in proof of my affection. I give you my eyes, my ears, my tongue, my heart, my whole being without reserve. Since I am your own, keep me and guide me as your property and possession. Amen.
 
All: Mary, mother of hope, mother grace, mother of mercy, shield me from the enemy and receive me at the hour of my death. Amen.
 
Leader: In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of  the Holy Spirit.
All: Amen.
 
 
HYMN TO OUR LADY OF HOPE
 
Long and wearisome the journey
Dark and threatening in the way
Sins and sorrow both oppressed me
Still with trusting heart I pray.
 
Mary, mother of my Savior
Heed my urgent child-like plea
Touch the tender heart of Jesus
Hope of the hopeless, pray for me
 
You who gave the world a promise
And a son Christ crucified
Tell my sins offended Savior
That it was for me He died
 
Though my sins be great and many
Courage weak and merits few
Never let my footsteps falter
Mother of Hope I trust in you.
