Month of Mary – May Devotions – Day 29 – Our Lady Queen of Nigeria!
Today, 29th May 2018, marks the 18th anniversary of Nigeria’s second return to democracy. A day set aside as Democracy Day, which is observed as a public holiday throughout the Federation. Therefore, we call on our Mother and Queen to intercede for Nigeria as she is the first principal patron saint of our dear nation. Pray for Nigeria.
Prayer to Our Lady, Queen of Nigeria
O Blessed Virgin Mary, Holy Mother of God, Our Lady, Queen of Nigeria, principal patron of Nigeria; you gave birth to the king who rules heaven and earth forever. O Immaculate Mother, Queen of the universe, Queen of Africa, Queen of our Country – Nigeria, Queen of our families and Queen of all Hearts; O heavenly Lady, you reign in union with your Divine Son in heaven and on earth. We entrust our Country, our homes and our individual lives into your hands and cares. We beg you to be ready to help us when we pray and bring back to us answers to our prayers. Our Lady, Queen and Patroness of Nigeria, help us to thank your Son and Our Lord Jesus Christ for blessing our Country with rich human and natural resources. We promise to serve God faithfully and to love our neighbours as ourselves. Provide for the needs of the Church, and work for a just and peaceful society. Our Lady, Queen of Nigeria – Pray for us.
