Day 9 – Queenship of Mary Novena, Aug. 21
Prayer Intention for August 21
Today’s prayer intention is for the living and deceased members of Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church. On this, the final day of preparation for the celebration of the Queenship of Mary, we pray that the grace of this novena become the seed by which a new era of blessing flourishes for our people. May we grow in holiness, may we be strengthened in the will to do good, and may we be inspired to an ever greater bond of fraternal charity so that we give witness to God’s love and give honor to our Queen and Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Daily Novena Prayer
Blessed Mother Mary, your Son Jesus Christ entrusted us to your protection as your own sons and daughters. In every age, the Church has known your maternal grace and intercession. In this special time of grace as we prepare to celebrate that you are our Queen, may we enjoy your protection, assistance, and love. By your sacred fiat, the Word was made flesh.
Teach us how to say yes to God when he calls us forth to work in his vineyard. Grant us reverence and humility when we receive the Lord Jesus Christ in his Holy Eucharist. We call upon you, Immaculate Virgin Mary, to inspire us by your own sorrow and suffering to true contrition for our sins. As you along with Saint Joseph made a home for the Son of God, help our families to grow in holiness in their own homes.
O Star of the Sea, please be a beacon of light for our parish so that we may fulfill our mission to bring God’s Light to the World and guide all souls to heaven. Amen.
