Novena to Our Lady of the Assumption
Lord Jesus Christ,
Thou has destroyed the power of death
and given the hope of eternal life,
for body and soul.
Thou granted Thy Mother
a special place in Thy glory
and did not allow decay to touch her body.
As we rejoice in the Assumption
of the Blessed Virgin Mary,
grant us renewed confidence
in the victory of life over death.
Mary, our dear Mother and mighty Queen,
take and receive our poor hearts
with all their desires,
all the love and all the virtues and graces
with which they may be adorned.
All we are and all we might be,
all we have and hold in the order of nature
as well as of grace,
we have received from God,
through thy loving intercession.
Help us dear Mother,
to surrender to God,
all that we have,
including our petitions.
(Mention your request)
Our Lady and Queen, into thy gentle hands,
we entrust all,
that it may be returned to its noble origin.
O Queen Assumed into Heaven, pray for us.
