Prayers of the Daughters of Mary of Nazareth
The Daughters of Mary of Nazareth were founded by Mother Olga Yaqob.
Help me to spread your fragrance wherever I go.
Flood my soul with your spirit and life.
Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly
that all my life may only be a radiance of yours.
Shine through me, and be so in me
that every soul I come in contact with
may feel your presence in my soul.
Let them look up and see no longer me,
but only you, O Lord!
Stay with me and then I will begin to shine as you do;
so to shine as to be a light to others.
The light, O Lord, will be all from you;
none of it will be mine.
It will be you shining on others through me.
By: Blessed John Henry Newman
I abandon myself into Your hands.
Do with me what You will.
Whatever You may do,
I thank You.
I am ready for all,
I accept all.
Let only Your will be done in me
and in all Your creatures.
I wish no more than this, O Lord.
Into Your hands
I commend my soul.
I offer it to You
with all the love of my heart.
For, I love you, Lord,
and so need to give myself,
to surrender myself into Your hands
without reserve and
with boundless confidence.
For You are my Father.
- by Blessed Charles de Foucauld
Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I consecrate myself today and always to Your Most Sacred Heart. Take possession of my whole being. Transform me into Yourself. Make my hands, Your Hands; my feet, Your Feet; my heart, Your Heart. Help me love with Your Heart, see with Your Eyes, listen with Your Ears, speak with Your Lips, understand with Your Mind and serve with Your Will. Make me Your other self. Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, make my heart Your sanctuary, so that I may live through You, with You, in You, and for You.
Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Immaculate Mary, the living tabernacle where the Son of God willed to be hidden and to be adored by Angels and by God’s people, into your hands I renew and ratify the vows of my Baptism, I give myself entirely to Jesus Christ, to carry my cross after Him all the days of my life, and to be more faithful to Him than I have ever been before. In the presence of all the Heavenly court I choose you this day for my Mother. I deliver and consecrate to you, as your daughter, my body and soul, my goods, both interior and exterior, and even the value of all my good actions, past, present and future; leaving to you the entire and full right of disposing of me, and all that belongs to me, without exception for the greater glory of God in time and in eternity.
O admirable Holy Mother, receive this offering of myself. Present me to your dear Son as His eternal servant, so that as He has redeemed me by you, by you He may receive me! O Mother of mercy, receive me among those whom you have loved and taught, whom you have led, nourished and protected as your children.
O faithful Virgin, make me in all things so perfect a disciple, imitator and servant of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ your Son, that I may attain, by your intercession and by your example the grace to become a woman after His own Heart. Amen.
