this little prayer):
“By thy Holy and Immaculate Conception, O Mary, deliver us
OF AMERICA PATRONESS OF OUR LAND
O Immaculate Mother,
Queen of our Country, open our hearts, our homes, and our Land to the coming of
Jesus, your Divine Son. With Him, reign over us, O heavenly Lady, so pure and
so bright with the radiance of God’s light shining in and about you. Be our
Leader against the powers of evil set upon wresting the world of souls,
redeemed at such a great cost by the sufferings of your Son and of yourself, in
union with Him, from that same Savior, Who loves us with infinite charity.
We gather about you, O
chaste and holy Mother, Virgin Immaculate, Patroness of our beloved Land,
determined to fight under your banner of holy purity against the wickedness
that would make all the world an abyss of evil, without God and without your
loving maternal care.
We consecrate our hearts,
our homes, our Land to your Most Pure Heart, O great Queen, that the kingdom of
your Son, our Redeemer and our God, may be firmly established in us.
We ask no special sign of
you, sweet Mother, for we believe in your great love for us, and we place in
you our entire confidence. We promise to honor you by faith, love, and the
purity of our lives according to your desire.
Reign over us, then, O
Virgin Immaculate, with your Son Jesus Christ. May His Divine Heart and your
most chaste Heart be ever enthroned and glorified among us. Use us, your
children of America, as your instruments in bringing peace among men and nations.
Work your miracles of grace in us, so that we may be a glory to the Blessed
Trinity, Who created, redeemed, and sanctifies us.
May your valiant Spouse,
St. Joseph, with the holy Angels and Saints, assist you and us in
“renewing the face of the earth.” Then when our work is over, come,
Holy Immaculate Mother, and as our Victorious Queen, lead us to the eternal
kingdom, where your Son reigns forever as King. Amen (200 days) Written at the behest of
Our Lady, October 5,

Our Lady’s messages have been given especially for our country and especially “for such a time as this.” So, please join me in praying these prayers given by Our Lady of America often for ourselves, our children, our families and our nation, for we are all deeply torn by sin, division, hatred and impurity that is so prevalent in our land, asking her:
“By thy Holy and Immaculate Conception, O Mary, deliver us from evil.”
Watch for more in this series in which I delve more deeply into Our Lady’s messages.
