#adventbookclub Day 11: The Virgin Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you,
Pray for me when I doubt
that he is with me too.

Hail Mary, full of courage,
Pray for me when my resolve fails,
and I hesitate in my ‘yes’.

Hail Mary, full of patience,
Pray for me when I am quick to anger,
impatient with others.

Hail Mary, full of mercy,
Pray for me when I do not want to forgive,
and when I want to but cannot.

Hail Mary, full of love,
Pray for me when I fail to love
the people God has placed before me.

Hail Mary, full of compassion,
Pray for me when I suffer
and have no-one to share the load.

Hail Mary, full of faith,
Pray for me when I cannot pray for myself.


#adventbookclub runs from 1st December until Epiphany. This year we are using “The Art of Advent” by Jane Williams, and raising some money for Mercy UK, a mental health charity over at the JustGiving page here. Search #adventbookclub on Twitter or Facebook to join in the conversation.
