Novena to Mary, Undoer of Knots

I read about this Novena to Mary, Undoer of Knots today in a magazine, and decided to look it up. I think that this is something I could use in my life at the moment. There are definitely knots that could use some untying. A novena booklet can be ordered from www.maryundoerofknots.com

Chaplet of the Seven Knots
This chaplet comprises seven groups of 4 beads each: A meditation bead, and three smaller beads on which are said Our Father, Hail Mary, and Gloria.

Beginning on the Pendant:
Holy Mary, who unties the seven knots, full of the presence of God during your life you accepted with great humility the Holy Will of the Father and the legacy of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. Evil never dared to entangle you.
Together with your Son, you interceded for our difficulties, and with simplicity and patience, you have taught us how to undo the knots that entangled our lives. By being our Mother, you smooth and make clear the ties that unite us to Our Lord.
Cover us with your protective mantle and permit us to experience, in your loving and maternal protection: Peace, Harmony, and Purity.

On the large beads, consider the meditation, one for each knot (below)

On the small beads, pray
Our Father
Hail Mary
Gloria

1st Knot:
In our temptation: Protect us

2nd Knot:
In our sin: Deliver us

3td Knot:
In our distress: Succor us

4th Knot:
In our sorrow: Comfort us

5th Knot:
In our fear: Encourage us

6th Knot:
In our illness: Relieve us

7th Knot
In our weakness: Strengthen us

At the conclusion:
Holy Mary, Mother of God and ours, with your maternal heart undo the knots that entangle our lives. We ask you to receive in your hands ( mention who or prayer request ) and liberate us from these entanglements. Blessed Virgin Mary, through your grace, your intercession, and your example, deliver us from evil and untie the knots that obstruct our unity with God, so that we may find Him in all things, have Him in our hearts, and serve Him always.
Amen.

Holy Mary, full of the presence of God
during your life you accepted with great
humility the Holy Will of the Father and the
legacy of your Son Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Evil never dared to entangle you with its
confusion. Since then you have interceded
for all of our difficulties. With all simplicity
and patience you have given us examples on
how to untangle the knots in our complicated
lives. By being our Mother forever, you arrange
and make clear the path that unites us to Our
Lord.
Holy Mary, Mother of God and ours, with your
maternal heart untie the knots that upset our
lives. We ask you to receive in your hands
(mention who or prayer request) and deliver
us from the chains and confusions that
have us restrained. Blessed Virgin Mary,
through your grace, your intercession and by
your example, deliver us from evil and untie
the knots that keep us from uniting with God,
so that once free of every confusion and error,
we may find Him in all things, have Him in our
hearts and serve him always in our brothers
and sisters. Mother of Good Counsel pray
for us .
Amen
