Our Lady of Peace Prayers
Our Lady of Peace Prayer
Most holy and immaculate Virgin, Mother of Jesus and our loving Mother, being his Mother, you shared in his universal kingship. The prophets and angels proclaimed him King of peace. With loving fervor in our hearts, we salute and honor you as Queen of peace.
We pray that your intercession may protect us and all people from hated and discord, and direct our hearts into the ways of peace and justice which your Son taught and exemplified. We ask your maternal care for our Holy Father who works to reconcile the nations in peace. We seek your guidance for our President and other leaders as they strive for world peace.
Glorious Queen of peace, grant us peace in our hearts, harmony in our families and concord throughout the world. Immaculate Mother, as patroness of our beloved country, watch over us and protect us with your motherly love. Amen.
Novena to Our Lady of Peace
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
We come before you, our God, to offer you through the Intercession of the Blessed Virgin, all our desires, hopes, and actions for your greater glory and for the exaltation of Mary our Mother. Deign to accept this offering in adoration, in thanksgiving, and in atonement for our sins. We are deeply sorry for the sins we have committed because you are all good and deserving of our love. We are resolved to confess our sins, to do penance, and to amend our lives. Amen.
Salute to the Blessed Virgin Mary
O most Holy Virgin, chosen by the Most High to be the most pure Mother of Christ, we rejoice at the sublime gift bestowed of you as the bearer of God Incarnate for nine months and as his protectress and comfort from his infancy to his death in calvary.
O Tender Mother, grant us also that particular protection in our lives, especially in time of need. Never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection implored your help or sought your intercession was left unaided. With this confidence, we implore you O Mother of Mercy, to grant us the graces and favors we are asking in this novena through the venerable image, under the title of Our Lady of Peace, we ask that you protect from all harm our loved ones who are working overseas. Extend your mantle of protection to all particularly to our country, so that true peace will reign in our midst. Amen.
(Silently mention the graces and favors asked. Then pray three Hail Mary’s, after which say, Our Lady of Peace, pray for us.)
