Prayer for Every Day

Immaculate Virgin and Queen of Carmel, you are the hope of the suffering and the consolation of the afflicted.  Look not upon my sins, but remember only that I am a poor soul redeemed by the Precious Blood of your Son, and that my heart is sealed with your Son, and that my heart is sealed with your holy Scapular.  Hear my prayer and if it be for the glory of God, your honor and for the salvation of my soul, grant what I ask in this Novena.  Amen.

First Day

Prayer.  The beauty of Carmel and the Glory of Lebanon are given to you in your Immaculate Conception, O Blessed Queen of Carmel!  I also rise from the sea of this world, not like you all pure and Immaculate, but full of sin. Help me, look upon me with your eyes of mercy.  Amen.

Hail Mary (three times).
