In this prayer of consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, we dedicate ourselves to follow the example of the Mother of God. The Blessed Virgin desires nothing other than the Will of her Son; we ask her to intercede for us, that we may know His Will and live it in our lives.

This prayer of consecration is especially appropriate during August, the Month of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and October, the Month of the Holy Rosary.

Prayer of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart

Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, and tender Mother of all people, I consecrate myself to your Immaculate Heart, and recommend to you my family, my country, and the whole human race. Please accept my consecration, dearest Mother, and use me as you wish, to accomplish your designs upon the world. O Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of Heaven and earth, rule over me, and teach me how to allow the Heart of Jesus to rule and triumph in me and around me, as it has ruled and triumphed in you. Amen.
