We all have knots in our lives - problems and struggles that we cannot see a solution for. No matter how small or large, Mary can help untie these knots. St. Irenaeus made a comparison between Eve and Mary, saying: "Eve, by her disobedience, tied the knot of disgrace for the human race; whereas Mary, by her obedience, undid it". This chaplet is one way to ask Mary, Undoer of Knots, to pray for you and untie the knots in your life that weigh so heavily on your heart.How to pray the Mary Undoer of Knots Chaplet:
Holding the Crucifix, make the sign of the Cross and pray the Apostles Creed.
On each set of three beads, pray one Our Father, One Hail Mary, and One Glory Be.
On the medal, pray the following prayer:
Holy Mary, full of the presence of God during your life you accepted with great humility the Holy Will of the Father and the legacy of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. Evil never dared to entangle you with its confusion. Since then you have interceded for all of our difficulties. With all simplicity and patience you have given us an example on how to untangle the knots in our complicated lives. By being our Mother forever, you arrange and make clear the path that unites us to Our Lord.
Holy Mary, Mother of God and ours, with your maternal heart untie the knots that upset our lives. We ask you to receive in your hands (mention prayer request or who you are praying for), and deliver us from the chains and confusions that have us restrained. Blessed Virgin Mary, through your grace, your intercession and by your example, deliver us from evil and untie the knots that keep us from uniting with God, so that once free of every confusion and error, we may find Him in all things, have Him in our hearts and serve Him always in our brothers and sisters. Mother of Good Counsel, pray for us.
