MOST BLESSED TRINITY, WE COME TO PRAY WITH THE MOTHER OF GOD AND WE PRAY IN REPARATION FOR THE SINS OF ALL YOUR CHILDREN. WE ARE SIMPLE AND HAVE SIMPLE WAYS AND SO WE OFFER YOU OUR LITTLE HEARTS AND SOULS THAT THEY GIVE YOU COMFORT AND APPEASE YOU. YOUR CHILDREN HAVE STRAYED AND LIKE SHEEP HAVE SCATTERED - LET OUR SIMPLE HEARTS, SOULS AND PRAYERS, DRAW THEM BACK TO YOU. AMEN.
"I AM A CHILD OF GOD, PLACED IN THE CARE OF THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY - MOTHER OF GOD, AND I SHALL REMAIN THERE FOREVER"
CONSECRATION TO THE ETERNAL FATHER
For the greater glory of GOD and for the salvation of all, I consecrate myself to YOU O ETERNAL FATHER as one of your faithful remnant. Behold, I come to do YOUR WILL. With the help of YOUR GRACE. I will keep YOUR COMMANDMENTS. I will love and reverence YOU with all my heart, soul, mind and strength. I will love my neighbor as YOU love me.
I make this consecration through the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Your beloved Son, JESUS.
O ETERNAL FATHER send forth Your Holy Spirit to restore our broken image and likeness of YOU.
Send forth also the celestial choirs of Your angels to aid us in our struggle against all the forces of evil in this present darkness.

PRAYER TO DEFEAT THE WORK OF SATAN
O Divine Eternal Father, in union with your Divine Son and the Holy Spirit, and through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg You to destroy the Power of your greatest enemy -- the evil spirits.
Cast them into the deepest recesses of hell and chain them there forever! Take possession of your Kingdom which You have created and which is rightfully yours.
Heavenly Father, give us the reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
I repeat this prayer out of pure love for You with every beat of my heart and with every breath I take. Amen.
