Glorious Mysteries for America
Heavenly Father, I unite with all those around the country who are also praying this novena. I come to you with faith, hope, and trust in the Word of God where Your Son Jesus said, “if two of you agree on earth about anything you ask, it will be done for you by my Father in Heaven.” (Mt. 18:19)
We ask, Father, that you have mercy on the United States of America. We ask that you open our hearts, our eyes, our minds, and our ears to Your Word. We ask that You pour out Your Holy Spirit upon the people of this country. Grant us the gifts of wisdom, understanding, knowledge, piety, fortitude, counsel, and fear of the Lord.
We ask you, Mary, of the Immaculate Conception—the patron Saint of the United States, who the Lord cannot refuse—to intercede for us regarding these intentions. Oh, Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee!
We ask you, St. Michael the Archangel—our celestial chief (Dn. 10:21)—to defend this country and its people with all the power and might given you by God. Stand guard with a battalion of Heavenly angels around the political leaders in every state.
In the Name of Jesus Christ and by the power of His Blood, may Satan be bound, silenced, and immobilized in his work against this country, our Church, and our families.
With souls thus protected and hearts filled with the Holy Spirit, we pray for a great awakening of the Bride of Christ, His Church on earth. We pray that a new multitude returns to the Church with great zeal and love for God. We pray the United States of America will be resurrected as one holy nation under God.
Lord, guard us, defend us, and sustain us in the battle against these principalities. We trust in You, Jesus, for all of our needs—physical, emotional, and spiritual. Grant us the strength, courage, and fortitude to accomplish your will in all things and to usher in Your Kingdom here on earth. Amen.
On the third day, the women dutifully set out for the tomb to care for the body of Jesus. There, they discovered He had risen from the dead. Eternal Father, I pray that the leaders and lawmakers in America dutifully begin to care for the body of Christ, the Church, so that religious freedom is always protected and upheld to the fullest extent. May the body of Christ in America be resurrected in fidelity and fervor.
Pray one Hail Mary for the leaders, lawmakers, and citizens in each of the following states: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, and Georgia
Before ascending to Heaven, Jesus commissioned His apostles to go and preach the Gospel to the ends of the earth. Eternal Father, I pray that the leaders and lawmakers in America experience within themselves a great commissioning as heralds of the Gospel. I pray that Jesus finds the United States is a faithful nation at His second coming.
Pray one Hail Mary for the leaders, lawmakers, and citizens in each of the following states: Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, and Maryland
The Descent of the Holy Spirit:
The disciples gathered in prayer with Mary, and Her Spouse, the Holy Spirt, descended upon them filling them with power and equipping them for evangelization. Eternal Father, I pray that Americans experience a renewed desire to pray the rosary and that this results in an outpouring of the Spirit, especially among our leaders and lawmakers.
Pray one Hail Mary for the leaders, lawmakers, and citizens in each of the following states: Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, and New Hampshire
The Blessed Virgin Mary was assumed into Heaven body and soul and has since appeared to numerous visionaries with warnings, pleas, and guidance. Eternal Father, I pray that all Americans—especially leaders and lawmakers—develop a new interest in Marian apparitions and begin to live out Her messages in this country.
