It is important to pray. These words might seem simplistic. But, considering what is happening in our nation and the world, we remember Our Lady’s words:



September 12, 1983

“Pray. When I give you this message, do not be content to just listen to it. Increase your prayer and see how it makes you happy. All graces are at your disposal. All you have to do is to gain them. In order to do that, I tell you - Pray!”



Twenty-seven years ago, a Friend of Medjugorje wrote the Seven Novenas for the Reconciling of Ourselves, our Families and Our Nation Back to God, beginning each June 25. Part of this important novena was the Prayer to Heal Our Land. This is a prayer which, even before the novena begins on June 25, should be prayed every day. Follow along below, with the audio of the prayer. Make this part of your daily prayer schedule. Every grace is available to us. We just need to pray.

The Prayer to Heal Our Land, was written by a Friend of Medjugorje in 1993. The Prayer was written as part of the Seven Novenas prayed each year, in preparation for the Five Days of Prayer for the Reconciling of Ourselves, Our Families and Our Nation Back to God - a prayer event held each year December 8th through the 12th, at Caritas of Birmingham. The Seven Novenas with the Prayer to Heal Our Land can downloaded free or ordered on Mej.com, spelled m-e-j-.com, or by calling Caritas in the U.S. 205-672-2000.



Millions of these prayers have been prayed since 1993, by people across our land and world. A Friend of Medjugorje writes, that through the apparitions of Medjugorje, the Virgin Mary is leading us to prayer. Only in prayer will we find our way back to God, to reconciliation, to the healing of our land and world. Get on your knees, pray with the heart, in union with tens of thousands across the world.



The Prayer to Heal Our Land
from The Seven Novenas written in 1993


LORD, WHO ARE WE AS A PEOPLE, having been given blessings in portions as no other nation before us? What has become of us, Father? We have spoiled your spacious skies with buildings and cities breathing with sin. The amber waves of grain are no longer viewed as our blessing but as our due. The awe and reverence due You when we gaze upon the purple mountains and their majesty is no longer held; rather, how much pleasure they can give us. Father, we have spurned You. We’ve blamed our problems on those who promote darkness, but You gave us time with Your Mother. Now our eyes have been opened by Her. Our lack of holiness, our not being light has allowed darkness to prevail. Indeed, our sins which we wrongly view as small have allowed those in darkness to commit great sins without shame. We now realize it’s because of our failings as Christians. Father, Samuel told your people, “It is true you have committed all this evil, still you must not turn from the Lord, but worship Him with your whole heart. For the sake of His own great name, the Lord will not abandon his own people.” Father, we come before You with our whole hearts and ask You to grant Our Lady Her intentions.



Mary, we do not deserve to even be heard, yet we know Your Son’s passion merits that we are. Mary, we call You as You have called us. Please, intercede before God to forgive us, to heal us, to heal our families, and to heal our nation.



Father, grant Mary’s intentions and hear Her pleas for us. We know you are justly irritated with us but we beg and plead for forgiveness through our repentance from our hearts. We realize our nation is headed toward disaster by so many signs You have given us. Holy, Holy, Holy God, grant Mary Her requests that we may again be your people, not a nation above God but one nation humbled and under God. Amen.
