Prayers to Mary, Undoer of Knots

There are many novenas available online, and we especially recommend the Novena of Service to Mary Undoer of Knots available from our bookrack or

Prayer for Personal Troubles

Mother of fair love,
I look to you.
Take into your hands
the ribbon of my life
and see the snare of knots 
that keeps me bound 
to sin, anxiety, and hopelessness.

I beg you, Mother, by your 
powerful intercession
and long fingers 
of love and grace,
undo the knots
in my heart and in my life.
Free me to love 
as Christ loves.

Pope Francis' Prayer to Mary, Undoer of Knots

Holy Mary, full of God’s presence during the day of your life, you accepted with
full humility the Father’s will, and the devil was never capable of tying you up with
his confusion.

Once with your Son you interceded for our difficulties, and full of kindness and
patience, you gave us example of how to untie the knots in our life. By remaining
forever Our Mother, you put in order and make more clear the ties that link us to
the Lord.

Holy Mother, Mother of God and our Mother, to you who untie with a motherly
heart the knots of our life, we pray to you to receive in your hands (the name of
the person), and to free him/her of the knots and confusion with which our
enemy attacks.

Through your grace, your intercession and your example deliver us from all evil,
Our Lady, and untie the knots that prevent us from being united with God, so that
we, free from sin and error, may find Him in all things, may have our hearts
placed in Him, and may serve Him always in our brothers and sisters.
