St John Henry Newman’s Prayer to Our Lady

This beautiful prayer composed by St John Henry Newman is one to treasure and pray often.

This prayer is taken from the Marian Prayer Book. Bookmark this page to pray the prayer often.

O Mother of Jesus, and my Mother, let me dwell with you,
cling to you and love you with ever-increasing love.
I promise the honour, love and trust of a child.

Give me a mother’s protection,
for I need your watchful care.
You know better than any other the thoughts and desires
of the Sacred Heart.
Keep constantly before my mind the same thoughts,
the same desires,
that my heart may be filled with zeal for the interests
of the Sacred Heart of your Divine Son.
Instil in me a love of all that is noble,
that I may no longer be easily turned to selfishness.
Help me, dearest Mother,
to acquire the virtues that God wants of me:
to forget myself always, to work solely for him,
without fear of sacrifice.
I shall always rely on your help to be what Jesus wants me to be.
I am his; I am yours, my good Mother!
Give me each day your holy and maternal blessing
until my last evening on earth,
when your Immaculate Heart will present me to the heart
of Jesus in heaven,
there to love and bless you and your divine Son
for all eternity.
