Our Lady of Perpetual Help,

O Mother of Perpetual Help, whose very name inspires confidence,
    Come to my aid, O loving Mother.
That I may love God with all my heart,
    Come to my aid, O loving Mother.
That I may in all things conform my will to that of thy Divine Son, etc.
That I may always shun sin, the only real evil,
That I may always remember my last end,
That I may often and devoutly receive the Sacraments,
That I may avoid every proximate occasion of sin,
That I may never neglect prayer,
That I may ever remember to invoke thee, particularly in
    time of temptation,
That I may always be victorious in the hour of temptation,
That I may generously pardon my enemies,
That I may arise quickly, should I have the misfortune of
    falling into mortal sin,
That I may courageously resist the seductions of evil companions,
That I may be strong against my own inconstancy,
That I may not delay my conversion from day to day,
That I may labor zealously to eradicate my evil habits,
That I may ever love to serve thee,
That I may lead others to love and serve thee,
That I may live and die in the friendship of God,
In all necessities of body and soul,
In sickness and pain,
In poverty and distress,
In persecution and abandonment,
In grief and dereliction of mind,
In time of war, famine and contagion,
In every danger of sin,
When assailed by the evil spirits,
When tempted by the allurements of a deceitful world,
When struggling against the inclinations of my corrupt nature,
When tempted against the holy virtue of purity,
When death is nigh,
When the loss of my senses shall warn me that my earthly    
    career is at an end,
When the thought of my approaching dissolution shall fill me   
    with fear and terror,
When at the decisive hour of death, the evil spirit will endeavor
    to plunge my soul into despair,
When the priest of God shall give me his last absolution and his   
    last blessing,
When my friends and relations, surrounding my bed, moved with
    compassion, shall invoke thy clemency on my behalf,
When the world will vanish from my sight, and my heart will
    cease to beat,
When I shall yield my soul into the hands of its Creator,
When my soul will appear before its Sovereign Judge,
When the irrevocable sentence will be pronounced,
When I will be suffering in Purgatory, and sighing for the vision of God,

Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world,
    Spare us, O Lord.
Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world,
    Graciously hear us, O Lord.
Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world,
    Have mercy on us.

Let Us Pray

    O Almighty and merciful God, Who, in order to succor the human race, hast willed the Blessed Virgin Mary to become the Mother of Thy only-begotten Son, grant, we beseech Thee, that by her intercession we may avoid the contagion of sin and serve Thee with a pure heart, through the same Christ Our Lord.  R. Amen.
