8 Most Powerful Prayers To Mary Every Catholic Should Know

8 Most Powerful Prayers To Mary Every Catholic Should Know

The Marian prayers are about or to the Blessed Mother:

The Hail Mary

The Hail Mary is a well-loved and beautiful basic Catholic prayer. It’s one of the essential prayers to Virgin Mary. It combines two lines from Scripture (Lk 1:28 and Lk 1:42) with a humble request for Mary to pray for us.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

The Angelus

The Angelus is a traditional daily Catholic prayer that’s often said at 12 noon. This prayer is a beautiful meditation on the Incarnation, and on Mary’s role in it. Saying the Angelus at noon is a wonderful way to mark noontime, the center of each day. It helps us return our focus to the eternal. The Angelus steeps us in the spirituality of Mary, with its complete and humble service to the Lord. This is often said as a group prayer, with the leader speaking the V parts and the group responding with the R lines. If you’re saying it alone, just read both parts together.

V — The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.
R — And she conceived by the Holy Spirit.

Hail Mary… (Say The Hail Mary here.)

V — Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
R — Be it done unto me according to thy word.

Hail Mary…

V — And the Word was made Flesh.
R — And dwelt among us.

Hail Mary…

V — Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God.
R — That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

LET US PRAY: Pour forth, we beseech you, O Lord, your grace into our hearts, that we to whom the incarnation of Christ, your Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may by his passion and cross be brought to the glory of his resurrection. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Hail Holy Queen

This prayer is a constant favorite among the prayers to Virgin Mary. It has long been a part of the the Liturgy of the Hours, the Church’s official daily prayer.

Hail, holy Queen, mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope.
To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve.
To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.
Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us,
and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!
Pray for us, O holy Mother of God, that we may be
made worthy of the promises of Christ. Amen.

The Magnificat

Scripture contains this prayer of Mary’s joy and wonder at her role in the mystery of the Incarnation. The Church recites this beautiful prayer daily at Evening Prayer (Vespers) in the Liturgy of the Hours.

My soul magnifies the Lord,
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
for he has regarded the low estate of his handmaiden.
For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed;
for he who is mighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his name.
And his mercy is on those who fear him
from generation to generation.
He has shown strength with his arm,
he has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts,
he has put down the mighty from their thrones,
and exalted those of low degree;
he has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent empty away.
He has helped his servant Israel,
in remembrance of his mercy,
as he spoke to our fathers,
to Abraham and to his posterity for ever.

-(Luke 1:46-55)

The Memorare

The Memorare is a beautiful prayer that expresses our confidence in the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is attributed to St. Bernard of Clairvaux.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that any one who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help or sought thy intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins my Mother;
to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful;
O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions,
but in thy mercy hear and answer me, Amen.

Loving Mother of the Redeemer

This prayer is also included in the Liturgy of the Hours. It is attributed to Hermann the Lame, a German monk who died in 1054.

Loving Mother of the Redeemer, Gate of heaven, star of the sea,
Assist your people who have fallen yet strive to rise again.
To the wonderment of nature you bore your Creator,
yet remained a virgin after as before.
You who received Gabriel’s joyful greeting,
have pity on us poor sinners.

Miraculous Medal Prayer

One of the newer prayers to Virgin Mary. The first part appears on the Miraculous Medal, created by St. Catherine Laboure in response to her apparition of the Virgin Mary in 1830. This spurred a widespread devotion to prayers to Virgin Mary. St. Maximilian Kolbe added the remaining part of this prayer. He was devoted to the Blessed Mother and her Miraculous Medal, and recommended frequent prayers to Virgin Mary for our own salvation and that of others. St. Maximilian Kolbe was imprisoned by the Nazis in the Auschwitz death camp. He was killed on August 14, 1941, after offering his life so that another prisoner might be spared.

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee,
and for those who do not have recourse to thee,
especially the enemies of the Church and those recommended to thee. Amen.

Holy Rosary – Contemplating Christ with Mary

The Rosary is an incredible prayer. It’s deceptively simple, and profoundly deep. A simple vocal prayer, and a school of silent contemplation. It’s as small as a palm full of beads, and as wide as the Gospels. The term “The Rosary” refers to both a prayer and a physical object (set of Rosary beads). The main loop of a set of Rosary beads is divided into five decades. Each decade has a single bead, a space, and then ten beads. You follow the beads with your fingers as you say each prayer. When you start a decade, you name the mystery for it. (Don’t worry — there’s a list of them you’ll follow!) Then you say an Our Father on the single bead, followed by ten Hail Marys, one for each of the ten beads. Then you end the decade with a Glory Be.

How To Ask For Grace Through The Intercession Of Mary In The Hour Of Despair

How To Ask For Grace Through The Intercession Of Mary In The Hour Of Despair

The prayer recommended by Pope Francis

In times of darkness and despair, the Catholic knows that he can count on the intercession of his Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary, with Jesus. This is the prayer that, at these times, Pope Francis recommends:

A Prayer to Our Lady Unleashing Us

Holy Mary, full of the presence of God,

during the days of your life

you accepted with all humility

the will of the Father

and the evil one could never be involved

with its confusions.

Together with your Son

interceded for our difficulties

and, with all simplicity and patience,

give us the example of how to unfold

the lines of our life.

And, in remaining forever as our Mother,

put in order and make it clearer

the bonds that unite us to the Lord.

Holy Mary, Mother of God and our Mother,

to you, that with your maternal heart

untie the nodes that disturb our life,

we ask:

receive into your hands

………. ( say the full name of the person

or the node to be untied )

and deliver us from bondage and confusion

with which our enemy punishes us.

By your grace, through your intercession,

with your example,

deliver us from all evil, Our Lady,

and unties the nodes that prevent us

to unite with God,

so that, free from all confusion and error,

we praise Him in all things,

let us put our heart in him

and may we always serve Him in our brethren.

Amen.
