Pre-Consecration Prayer to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Lord God, we thank you for tne gift of our country Nigeria. You made it a fertile ground for the work of missionaries, guided by the power of the Holy Spirit. Your word is now firmly established in our land such that we have not only become missionaries to ourselves but also to other nations.
As your Son Jesus Christ reposed in the arms of the Blessed Virgin Mary so have we reposed Nigeria in her arms by making her our Patron Saint. As a nation we are going through turbulent moments, with hunger, pain, killing, kidnapping and many other atrocities being committed against each other. We believe that never was it known that anyone who fled to her protection implored her help, or sought her intercession was left unaided and so we come before her again sinful and sorrowful and desiring to re-consecrate Nigeria to her Immaculate Heart. May she intercede on our behalf to stabilize our ship of state.
We present ourselves as a nation, renouncing our past faults and offences. We resolve to imitate the exemplary life of our Mother Mary. Help us to renew and rectify the vows of our Baptism; rejecting Satan and all his works and empty promises. Obtain for us the grace for a perfect consecration of our nation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. We seek her continual intercession and maternal protection.
May this re-consecration bring forth peace, unity and tranquility to the nation and foster communion and service so as to radiate the joy of the gospel for the common good of our country. We make our prayer through your son our Lord Jesus Christ who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.
Our Lady, Queen of Nigeria, Pray for us.
Our Lady of Fatima, Pray for us.
