Luminous Mysteries for America

Opening Prayer


Heavenly Father, I unite with all those around the country who are also praying the rosary for our country. 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 given to you by God. Stand guard with a battalion of Heavenly angels around our President, Vice President, their families, their team, the Department of Justice, the Department of Defense, the United States Supreme Court, and all 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, here in America. We pray that a new multitude returns to the Church with great zeal and love for God. We pray the United States 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.


Today I also pray for this private intention: _________. And I pray for the private intentions of all those praying this rosary with me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen


The Baptism of Jesus


The Heavens opened, the Spirit of God descended, and those present could hear the voice of the Father saying, “This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.” Eternal Father, I pray that you open the Heavens and send Your Spirit upon the leaders, lawmakers, and citizens of United States of America so that we, too, may be found pleasing in your sight.

The Wedding at Cana


The Blessed Virgin Mary noticed they ran out of wine. So she went to her Son to present their needs to him. Because of her great faith, Jesus was able to work a miracle, causing those at the wedding to believe in him. Blessed Virgin Mary, we ask that you present the needs of the United States of America to your Son. Ask him for a miracle in this country. The wine of our faith is running low. Ask him for an increase of faith, especially among leaders and lawmakers so that all may come to believe in him.

The Proclamation of the Kingdom


Jesus traveled across the land proclaiming, “Repent! And believe in the Gospel. The Kingdom of God is at hand!” Lord, God, we ask for an outpouring of grace upon the United States of America that all leaders, lawmakers, and citizens will be moved to repentance, believe in the Gospel, and usher in the Kingdom of God in this country.

The Transfiguration


Jesus led his disciples up a mountain to pray, and while they were there, he revealed his glory to them. Lord, Jesus, we are ascending the spiritual mountain of prayer in this rosary so that we can be near to you. We ask that you reveal yourself to us and to all the people of this country, most especially our leaders and lawmakers. Let us see the glory you share with the Father and transfigure us, too, in the image and likeness of God.

The Institution of the Eucharist


At the Last Supper, Jesus gave his disciples his Body and Blood as a means to sustain them for their journey home to the Father in Heaven. Lord, Jesus, send forth your Holy Spirit on the people of the United States of America—especially our leaders and lawmakers—and renew in us a love for the Holy Eucharist so that our country will be sustained during the world’s tribulations. Make us a truly Eucharistic people and bring us safely into your Heavenly Banquet.
