Prayer Before The Rosary 3
Queen of the Holy Rosary,
you have designed to come to Fatima,
to reveal to the three shepherd children,
the treasures of grace hidden in the Rosary.
Inspire my heart with a sincere love of this devotion,
in order that by meditating on the Mysteries
of our Redemption which are recalled in it,
I may obtain peace for the world,
the conversion of sinners,
and the favor which I ask of you
in this Rosary (Mention your request).
I ask it for the greater glory of God,
for your own honor,
and for the good of souls,
especially for my own.
My dearest Mother Mary,
Behold me, your child, in prayer at your feet. Accept this Holy Rosary, which I offer you in accordance with your requests at Fatima, as a proof of my tender love for you, for the intentions of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in atonement for the offenses committed against your Immaculate Heart, and for this special favor which I earnestly request in my Rosary Novena: (Mention your request).I beg you to present my petition to your Divine Son. If you will pray for me, I cannot be refused. I know, dearest Mother, that you want me to seek God’s holy Will concerning my request.
