Prayer to Our Mother of Good Counsel

We turn to you, our Mother of Good Counsel,

as we seek to imitate your faith-filled life.

May we be led by the same Wisdom

which God sent forth from Heaven

to guide you along unfamiliar paths and through challenging decisions.

Keep us in mind and heart,

as we go forward in joyful hope

toward the grace-filled freedom that Saint Augustine recommends.

O Virgin, Mother of Good Counsel,

hear our prayer, as we look to you for guidance.

Pray for us to our loving and merciful Father,

to your Son, our Lord Jesus the Christ,

and to the Holy Spirit, giver of all Wisdom

one God forever and ever.


About this Prayer

The Augustinians pray this prayer every morning as part of Morning Prayer as we recall our need for God’s help in the day ahead. Through this prayer we seek the counsel of the faith-filled life of Mary who herself faced uncertainty as she too journeyed along unfamiliar paths and challenging decisions towards God. The prayer also reminds us that we are on this journey together, and we ask God to keep us one in mind and heart as we journey through the day.
