My Journey to God

Tears and Prayers

We gather together, humble and still
Hail Mary
To pray for our dear one, so gravely ill.
Full of grace
This grief I think we cannot bear
The Lord
Please keep our sister in your care.
Is with Thee.
Blessed Mother, faithful one
Blessed art Thou
Bring our petition to your Son.
Among women
Your dear and most precious Son, Our Lord
And blessed is the fruit of Thy womb
Healer, Redeemer, worshipped, adored.
May our prayers be as incense before the Most High
Holy Mary
Let your Motherly ear incline to our cry.
Mother of God
We turn to the Father with trust in our strife
Pray for us sinners
Please pray with us now for our dear sister’s life.
May the sorrow that threatens be brought low,
And at the hour of our death
To the glory of God. Let it be so.
