Prayer to print
Hi! Someone sent the following novena to my mother's house and I thought you
might like to print this out to use these days.
Sincerely, Marie Picard
Novena(to do daily for 9 days)
for Protection of Your House
Hail Holy Queen Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope. To
Thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve, To Thee do we send up our
sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious
Advocate, Thine Eyes of Mercy
towards us. And after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of Thy
womb, Jesus. O Clement, O Loving, O Sweet Virgin Mary. Pray for us, O Holy
Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
St. Michael Prayer (repeat 7 times)
St Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the
wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray, and do
Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust into hell
Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the
ruin of souls. Amen.
Glory Be (repeat 9 times)
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost, as it was in
the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Lord, have mercy on us. Christ, have mercy on us. Lord, have mercy on us.
I Consecrate My House
Most Blessed Virgin, whose Heart is Sorrowful and Immaculate, we recognize
Thee as the Lady and Queen of this house.
Have the kindness to preserve it from any evil; from fire, water, thunder,
storms, earthquakes, from robbers, wicked people, from revolutions, war raids,
from persecution and taxes, and from any other evil known by Thee.
Bless, protect, defend, and preserve as Thy personal property, those who live
and will live here. Keep them from adversity and misfortune, but above all,
preserve them from offending God. Let not a single mortal sin be ever
committed in this house. And may all those who enter it work for the Glory of
God, for the reign of Jesus and Mary.
Let this house be forever consecrated to You, O Jesus and Mary. Let it be
blessed with all those who inhabit it. Amen.
During WW1, in France, some of the faithful Catholics were known to have this
prayer tacked to their front door. These homes and residences were not harmed
during the time of war
