A prayer to help get ready for lent…
Prayer to Mary, Undoer of Knots
Virgin Mary, Mother of fair love, Mother who never
refuses to come to the aid of a child in need, Mother
whose hands never cease to serve your beloved
children because they are moved by the divine love
and immense mercy that exists in your heart, cast your
compassionate eyes upon me and see the snarl
of knots that exist in my life.
You know very well how desperate I am, my pain
and how I am bound by these knots.
Mary, Mother to whom God entrusted the undoing
of the knots in the lives of his children, I entrust
into your hands the ribbon of my life.
No one, not even the Evil One himself, can take it
away from your precious care. In your hands, there
is no knot that cannot be undone.
Powerful Mother, by your grace and intercessory power
with Your Son and My Liberator, Jesus, take into your
hands today this knot…I beg you to undo it for
the glory of God, once for all, You are my hope
O, my Lady, you are the only consolation God gives me,
the fortification of my feeble strength, the enrichment
of my destitution and with Christ the
freedom from my chains.
Hear my plea
Keep me, guide me, protect me, o safe refuge!
Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for me
