Last week I came across a lovely prayer card while visiting a rural monastery where I buy St. Michael soap made by the Augustinian Monks who live there. Although a non-Catholic, Mother Mary has always held a special place in my heart; so when I read the Undoer of Knots Prayer, I knew it was just what my soul needed.
"With God all things are possible." (Luke 1:37)
Prayer to Our Mother Undoer of Knots
O Virgin Mary, faithful Mother who never refuses to come to the aid of
your children; Mother whose hands never cease to help, because they are
moved by the loving kindness that exists in your Immaculate Heart, cast
your eyes of compassion upon me, and see the snarl of knots that exists
in my life. You know all the pains and sorrows caused by these tangled
knots. Mary, my Mother, I entrust to your loving hands the entire ribbon
of my life. In your hands there is no knot which cannot be undone.
Most Holy Mother, pray for Divine Assistance to come to my aid. Take
these knots (mention here) into your maternal hands this day, beg you
to undo it for the glory of God, once and for all, in the name of your
Divine Son, Jesus Christ, Amen.
Mary, Undoer of knots, pray for us.
Mary the Queen of Angels belongs not only to certain Judeo-Christians, but to all God's people. She is the celebration of all human cultures steeped in faith. Since I have been praying this healing prayer, I have found more peace and an unfolding in a gentle loving way. I love the imagery of Mary and her angels untying the knots in the ribbon of my life.
Love and joyful blessings,
