Use ordinary rosary beads. To start the chaplet of our Lady of the Lilies, pray on the first rosary bead:
O Merciful God, I lay before you all of my trials, heartaches and needs, my prayer requests, and my desire to be holy as you, O Lord, are holy. Grant that the wounds of <name>’s soul are healed by the stripes of my Savior, Jesus Christ. Nothing is impossible for you, O God. Hear my prayer.
Next 3 beads, pray: Hail Mary …
Next 1 bead, pray: Our Father ….
For each decade: Offer 5 lilies to the Blessed Mother, below.
After each lily, pray:
My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, the Mighty One, the Merciful One.
My spirit rejoices in God my Savior. (10 times, one for each bead in the decade)
After each decade, pray: Hail Mary ….
The 5 lilies:
- The first lily that I give to the Blessed Mother is the virtue of purity. Pray for <name>, O Holy Mother of God, that he (she) may grow in purity of mind, body, and soul.
- The second lily that I give to the Blessed Mother is the virtue of trust.
Pray for <name>, O Holy Mother of God, that he (she) may trust more fully in the Father’s will.
- The third lily that I give to the Blessed Mother is the virtue of patience.
Pray for <name>, O Holy Mother of God, that he (she) may be patient in the unfolding of God’s holy plan.
- The fourth lily that I give to the Blessed Mother is the virtue of wisdom.
Pray for <name>, O Holy Mother of God, that he (she) may grow in wisdom to know the difference between good and evil and to live a holy life.
- The fifth lily that I give to the Blessed Mother is the virtue of love.
Pray for <name>, O Holy Mother of God, that he (she) may love God with all his (her) heart and soul and mind and that he (she) will love everyone with compassion and mercy.
May the divine love of your Most Holy Son, my Lord Jesus Christ, deliver <name> from all evil and guide him (her) into everlasting life.
Father God, surround <name> with your holy angels, in such abundance that demons cannot see him (her), or hear him (her), or strategize correctly against him (her). Bless all of his (her) relationships, activities, dreams, and plans, increasing the pleasure of all that’s of You, and increasing discomfort and pain in all that is not of You.
Glory be … Amen!
