Dear Blessed Mother Mary, you knew the importance of being prayerful and also of being attentive to one's family. Please teach me how to do both well. Please deepen my relationship with your son, Jesus. Because my vocation of motherhood keeps me very involved with the task at hand, please give me reminders as I go about my day to raise my heart and mind to God often, asking for help and grace, as well as offering deep gratitude. Please keep my family under your powerful protection. Amen.
