Anawim Prayers

Prayer to Our Sorrowful Mother

Sorrowful Mother Mary, fixing your gaze on the cross of your Son Jesus, you pondered his sufferings in your heart. Knowing that many of your children would reject his divine mercy, sorrow pierced your heart. Mary, make our hearts like yours, altars of reparation for the afflictions and offenses against your Son. Help us to bear our crosses, uniting our sufferings with his for the redemption of the world. Lead us into the fullness of the Eucharistic life you share with him. We await all this from you, Mother, for we are your Anawim. Amen.

Prayer to Our Lady of the Liturgical Life

Queen Mother Mary, we come before you begging an outpouring of grace upon the whole world. Open the eyes of our hearts with your faith. Draw us deeply into the life of the Church as we ponder the mysteries of creation, redemption, and sanctification celebrated in your maternal heart. Lead us into the Eucharistic heart of your Son to drink of the inexhaustible fountain of the divine will. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

Prayer to St. Joseph, Protector of the Anawim

Beloved St. Joseph, Protector of the Anawim, watch over us day and night, preserve us from occasions of sin and obtain for us purity of soul and body. Grant us a spirit of sacrifice, humility, and courage, a burning love for Jesus in the Eucharist, and a tender love for Mary our mother. St. Joseph, be with us living, be with us dying, and intercede for us to Jesus our merciful Savior. Amen.
