Prayer to the Immaculate Conception
O God, who by the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, didst prepare a worthy dwelling place for Thy Son, we beseech Thee that, as by the foreseen death of this, Thy Son, Thou didst preserve her from all stain, so too Thou wouldst permit us, purified through her intercession, to come unto Thee. Through the same Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, who livest and reignest with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. Amen.
O most Holy Virgin, who was pleasing to the Lord and became His mother, immaculate in body and spirit, in faith and in love, look kindly upon me as I implore thy powerful intercession. O most Holy Mother, who by thy blessed Immaculate Conception, from the first moment of thy conception didst crush the head of the enemy, receive our prayers as we implore thee to present at the throne of God the favor we now request…
(State your intention here)
O Mary, the Immaculate Conception, Mother of Christ, thou hadst influence with thy Divine Son whilst upon this earth; thou hast the same influence now in heaven. Pray for us and obtain for us from Him the granting of this my petition, if it be the Divine Will. Amen.
