God of infinite love,
I thank you for this feast of our salvation,
right here in the middle of Lent.
I turn to you to beg for your help.
I need the inspiration and help of Mary on this journey.
Please grant me the grace to be humbly faithful
to what you are calling me to do.
Please give me what I need to be free and to be your servant.
Please let Mary guide us in the path to peace in our world.
I ask you this, in Jesus' name.
May the Lord bless us,
protect us from all evil
and bring us to everlasting life.
