O Divine Father, the Blessed Virgin Mary was conceived pure in body in order to carry Your Son in her womb, and when her life on earth ended, You gave her a glorified body and raised her directly into Heaven. I ask her to pray for my attitudes regarding my physical health; may I appreciate the body You gave me while overcoming the passions of the flesh. Stop me from destroying this temple of the Holy Spirit through laziness, harmful habits, addictions, and impurities, so that at my death my own body will be better prepared to receive its Heavenly reward. Holy Mary, pray for me now and at the hour of my death. Amen.
