Patroness Prayer

Mary, Our Mother of Africa,
hear the drumbeat of our prayers. 
May Your Son Jesus
continue to bring us joy,
receive our tensions,
and forgive us our sins. 
Help us to walk in His light. 
Help us to help others to do the same.
And bring us to life everlasting,
With the Holy Saints and Angels.
