From the article: Prayers for August
There are hundreds of prayers in honor of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, to whom the month of August is dedicated. You can find some of them in my Prayers for August, but if you have a favorite prayer to the Immaculate Heart of Mary that isn't on that list, please post it here, and I will add it! Share Your Prayers!
The Rosary of the Seven Sorrows of Mary
- In the whole world, no one, not even the disciples felt the strong bitterness of the passion of the Lord more than the Virgin Mary. Because of Her deep love for Her Son and Her God, anything that happened to Him was paining so much deep in Her heart. She was there and witnessed every drop of blood shed for our salvation and once more, she showed that nothing could ever separate her from her Son. Hence, kneeling down in front of her pierced heart and the crucifix and meditating, sharing with her the passion of the Lord will just attract from the Holy Heart of the Lord any kinds of blessings, mercy, love and peace in heart. I would like to invite our fellow Christians to try on this experience. Even the worst demon can't resist the strength of this prayer and thank God all these are the richnesses of the Catholic Faith. There are so many powerful and wonderful prayers one can use but this is one of the greatest I have so far experienced.

Prayer of Consecration
- 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.
