Ransom Prayer to Our Lady of Mercy

This prayer has been on my heart for some time now, and I had trouble articulating it for a very long time.  Then one morning, the words were all there.  I would like to share it with you today.  We are all held captive to persuasions of the devil at times, we all struggle with these persuasions (and they sometimes do lead us to sin).  We are all in great need of prayer.  So together, let us pray for each other:

Our Mother and Lady of Mercy, we come to you fervently seeking your aid.  Our loved ones are falling, our dear friends ensnared, and those without anyone to pray for them stand at the brink of destruction.  Extend your mantle of refuge and protection lovingly to cover mankind, to cover all sinners.

We pray explicitly for the ransom of all souls held captive to the devil’s persuasions.  Many have been persuaded, but mighty is God’s merciful hand that saves, reaching out to the very gates of hell to rescue all repentant souls.

With you, O Blessed Mother of Mercy, we ask that God’s graces illuminate souls to clearly see His Will.  May God grant courage for all to amend their errant ways, and may the peace of God perpetually accompany all who return to the right path, fixing them Heaven-bound.

For all souls held captive to the persuasions of substance abuse and addiction… we pray for their ransom and return.

For all souls held captive to the persuasion of abortion…

For all souls held captive to the persuasions of contraception and sterilization…

For all souls held captive to the persuasions of pornography and eroticism…

For all souls held captive to the persuasions of trafficking and abuse…

For all souls held captive to the persuasion of suicide…

For al souls held captive to the persuasion of euthanasia…

For all souls held captive to the persuasions of violence and terrorism…

For all souls held captive to the persuasion of heresy…

For all souls held captive to the persuasion of atheism…

For all souls held captive to the persuasions of promiscuity and immodesty…

For all souls held captive to the persuasions of active homosexuality and gender confusion…

For all souls held captive to the persuasions of lust, pride, and all sin…

And for all those in turmoil who care deeply for these captive souls, we pray for their healing and restoration.  May the rays of your Son’s infinite and unfathomable mercy shatter the devil’s snares, redeeming all held captive to his empty persuasions.  We ask this of Jesus through your tender and Immaculate Heart.  Our Lady of Mercy, Pray for Us!  Jesus, we trust in You!

You can place it with your prayer cards or somewhere in your home so you can remember to pray for the ransom of all souls held captive to the devil’s persuasions. 

This prayer can accompany the white scapular of Our Lady of Mercy, also known as Our Lady of Ransom.  This is the scapular that I have felt called to wear, and I have found that it is a powerful and beautiful form of devotion to Our Lady.  You can join me in this mission of mercy and purchase one of these special white scapulars here!
