Oh Mother of Perpetual Help, grant that I may ever invoke your powerful name, the protection of the living and the salvation of the dying. Purest Mary, let your name henceforth be ever on my lips. Delay not, Blessed Lady, to rescue me whenever I call on you. In my temptations, in my needs, I will never cease to call on you, ever repeating your sacred name, Mary, Mary. What a consolation, what sweetness, what confidence fills my soul when I utter your sacred name or even only think of you! I thank the Lord for having given you so sweet, so powerful, so lovely a name. But I will not be content with merely uttering your name. Let my love for you prompt me ever to hail you Mother of Perpetual Help. Mother of Perpetual Help, pray for me and grant me the favor I confidently ask of you.
(Then say three Hail Marys).

Novena Prayer
Dear Mother of Perpetual Help * from the cross Jesus gave you to us for our Mother. You are the kindest the
most loving * of all mothers. Look tenderly on us your children * as we now ask you to help us in all our needs
* especially this one … (Pause to recall your petition). While you were on earth, dear Mother * you willingly
shared in the sufferings of your Son. Strengthened by your faith and confidence * in the fatherly love of God *
you accepted the mysterious designs of His will.
We too, have our crosses and trials. Sometimes they almost crush us to the ground. Dearest Mother * share
with us your abundant faith and confidence in God. Make us aware that God never ceases to love us; * that He
answers all our prayers * in the way that is best for us. Strengthen our hearts to carry the cross * in the
footsteps of your Divine Son. Help us to realize * that he who shares the cross of Christ * will certainly share
His resurrection.
Dearest Mother, as we worry about our own problems * let us not forget the needs of others. You always loved
others so much; * help us to do the same. While praying for our intentions * and for the intentions of all here
present at this Novena * we earnestly ask you, our Mother * to help us comfort the sick and the dying * give
hope to the poor and the unemployed * heal the broken-hearted * lighten the burden of the oppressed * teach
justice to their oppressors and bring back to God all those who have offended Him.
Dearest Mother, help us to avoid sin which separates us from our heavenly Father * and from one another. Full
of trust in you * we place ourselves under the mantle of your maternal protection * and confidently hope for
your powerful help.Amen.
