God Our Father, the Blessed Virgin Mary came into this world full of grace. The birth of Mary meant that soon the Messiah would arrive and rescue us from sin. I ask her to pray for me to receive a greater portion of Your grace, and to help me resist the temptations that I face each day. Give me the grace to trust You more fully, to share Your love more readily, and to decrease so that You may increase. Help me to love purely, humbly, and generously. Show me how to receive more of Your love so that I have more love to give. Let Your grace in me become an opportunity for others to meet You. Holy Mary, pray for me and for the whole world. Amen.
