Concluding Prayer For Everyday

Remember oh most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that any one who fled to thy protection, implored thy help and sought thine intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly untho thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To thee I come; before thee I stand sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the World Incarnate, despise not my words but graciously hear and grant my prayer. Amen.

(Pray one Hail Mary)
